If you have a Windows computer, you’ll most likely need a registry cleaner/system optimizer sooner or later. The Windows registry is responsible for keeping track of all the apps you install on your computer. It’s a common thing for our PCs to become cluttered over time, from constantly installing and uninstalling apps on them, without knowing that in most cases, we leave behind broken registry entries and files, almost every time we uninstall a program. That is why after a while, our computer starts to display errors, decreases in performance, crashes, we get BSODs and so on.
Registry cleaners are utility apps developed to clean the Windows registry, fix any invalid/broken entries, compact the registry and optimize your computer. The result is a more stable, smoother and faster device.
The problem with most registry cleaners and system optimizers on the market is that they are usually so heavily advertised that they annoy and lose customers. Oftentimes, users run away from them thinking they are malicious viruses, when in fact, they can be very useful.
RegClean Pro is a popular registry cleaner and optimizer created by Systweak, an Indian company founded in 1999. This company has various other utility apps available, such as Advanced System Optimizer, Right Backup, Duplicate Files Fixer, Disk Analyzer and many more. They develop utility software for all the common operating systems, from Windows to macOS, Android and iOS.
RegClean is developed exclusively for Windows devices and works on Windows XP and up to Windows 10 (32 and 64-bit versions). The software is available in two versions: a free one (RegClean) and one that requires you to purchase a license (RegClean Pro).
RegClean should be seen like a trial version that allows you to test the app’s interface, run a scan of your device and as a bonus, it also lets you fix up to 15 invalid entries. However, it is limited to that and if you want to benefit from the full set of features offered by the software, you have to upgrade to the RegClean Pro version.
Systweak offers yearly licenses for RegClean Pro and a license for one-year can currently be purchased for approximately $44. In this price, Systweak also includes a free lifetime license for PhotoStudio v2.1, which is a nice photo editing app. PhotoStudio can be used to add visual effects to your images, search for and redesign digital images, create slideshows and presentations and more.
RegClean Pro has several useful tools and it can be used to:
- Defrag and compact your Windows registry
- Fix any invalid entries (as many as there are, you are not limited as it is the case with the free version)
- Improve the response time of your computer
- Boost your computer’s performance, by making it faster, smoother
- Get rid of system crashes and blue screens of death (BSODs); for the best results, you should use the app on a monthly basis
- The app has an undo feature as well
