When you have problems with your Windows PC, don’t panic or hurry to get it to the repair shop. When we invest our money in a computer, we pay a lot of attention to its configuration: its processor, the drive, its RAM memory and so on. So it is understandable that we have high expectations when it comes to how our devices perform.
But computers won’t work flawlessly forever and over time, they might become slow or buggy. Most often than not, the reason for that is all the clutter that builds up because of all our actions. We constantly move files, delete them, install and uninstall apps, maybe even get infected with viruses and so on. All these factors contribute to the sluggishness of our PC.
What can you do about your slow, malfunctioning computer?
If you don’t clean your home for a longer period of time, vacuuming, dusting, etc., all that mess will become visible and will start to have its repercussions. Same goes for your computer. All it needs is a good cleaning from time to time, to get rid of all the clutter and resuscitate the entire system.
That’s where utility software comes in, to analyze and fix your system and boost your PC’s performance.
There are a lot of programs that fall in the utility software category: disk cleaners, analyzers and defragmenters, registry cleaners, backup programs, antivirus software and more.
RegCure and RegCure Pro – Are they good options to consider?
RegCure Pro is a maintenance tool developed by ParetoLogic Software, a company based in Victoria, British Columbia. The company develops security, performance and backup & recovery software.
RegCure Pro is the paid version of the program, while RegCure is the free one. The free version can't really be used to repair and optimize your computer in any way, it only allows you to diagnose your computer.
As ParetoLogic claims on the website, RegCure Pro helps you ‘restore your computer to peak performance’, solving all sorts of issues the device might have. While it might be deemed a registry cleaner, RegCure Pro it is much more complex than that, as it has many other useful tools.
RegCure Pro follows a few typical steps to improve your system: it scans your computer for issues and errors, displays the results it obtains and then fixes/cleans those issues with your approval.
Price. RegCure comes in a free trial version and a Pro version, which costs around $30. The free trial is only useful if you want to check out the interface of the program and see what features it has. However, you can only run scans with it, but not fix your computer’s issues. If you want to be able to clean and fix all the found bugs, you have to purchase to full version, which is RegCure Pro.
RegCure Pro is compatible with Windows devices and it works even on those that still use old operating systems such as Windows Vista or even XP.
Windows XP – at least a 300MHz processor and 256 MB RAM required
Windows Vista – 1 GHz processor and 1 GB RAM; the Vista Home Basic only requires an 800 MHz processor and 512 MB RAM
Windows 7 and Windows 8 - 32 bit – 1 GHz processor and 1 GB RAM; Windows 7 and 8 - 64 bit – a GHz processor and 2 GB RAM
Windows 10 – 32 bit – 1 GHz processor and 1 GB RAM
Windows 10 – 64 bit – 1 GHz processor and 2 GB RAM
How does it work?
RegCure Pro is very user-friendly from the get-go. Installing the program takes only a couple of minutes. You will be guided through the entire installation process and all you have to do is click on ‘Next’ until the software is completely installed.
Once RegCure Pro is installed, you can proceed with the first and most important step, which is run a ‘system scan’, to find out what’s wrong with your computer and what needs to be improved. You’ll be vocally informed when the scan is complete and the results will be displayed on the screen.
RegCure Pro has a lot of useful tools you can use and an important one is it sets restore points. This way, in case anything goes wrong or you accidentally delete something you didn’t have to for instance, you can restore your computer to return to a previous date so you won’t lose any important data. The program can also delete old restore points, because they take up a lot of disk space.
Here are some of the most important things you can do with RegCure Pro:
- Remove threats such as adware, spyware, viruses and others

All in all, we find RegCure Pro to be a complex maintenance and optimizing program, suited for the common user. If you notice your computer is not as fast as it used to be, it takes a lot of time to start up or you start to get a lot of errors and annoying messages, you should give RegCure Pro a try.
