Most people check out free trials before purchasing something – and it’s actually a good idea especially if you’re looking to find a registry cleaner. One such trial we tried recently is Uniblue Systems’ Registry Booster. Let’s check out what it has to offer, shall we?
Registry Booster basics
This registry cleaner is made specifically to clean out your registry, optimize your system, and correct erroneous entries. Like other maintenance programs of this type, the Registry Booster scans your Windows registry for invalid and corrupt entries, and then corrects said errors to improve your computer’s performance and stability. Everything is done automatically, so you don’t need to worry about fiddling with the registry yourself.
The Registry Booster features a clean and easy to use interface. You can view the results of the scan on the Registry Scan tab, which will show you a log of the problematic entries. This registry cleaner also provides other functionalities for defragmenting your registry, viewing saved logs of previous scans, and setting scanning preferences, among other things.
The Trial Version
The Registry Booster got an average of 4 stars from CNET editors, but got a measly rating of 2.5 stars from users. Most reviewers gave the registry cleaner low marks because of the trial version’s strict limitations that made it hard to determine whether the program is beneficial or not.
Once you download (we don’t need to tell you to download only from a trusted website) and install the Registry Booster, it jumps straight to doing a scan if you choose to launch it after installing. This can be a little problematic if you aren’t prepared – like if you have other applications running or whatnot – as the scan can cause your computer to slow down. Though temporary, you may find it annoying. The trial version only repairs 15 registry errors, though it doesn’t let you choose which keys you can repair. The registry defragmenter on the other hand is very limited as well, so it’s pretty hard to see if the program is effective or not.
Judging from the reviews, Registry Booster is a trustworthy and decent registry cleaner. It won’t hurt to try it out for yourself.
