Should one use a registry cleaner or not has always been a debatable question. Microsoft once offered their own registry cleaners like RegClean, RegMaid, which were discontinued long time back, and also its Windows Live OneCare registry cleaner, which was discontinued more recently. The question as to whether registry cleaners actually makes a Windows PC run faster however still remains! In my opinion, using a safe registry cleaner or registry defragmenters occasionally might be good house-keeping, but do not expect any real performance gains after using a Registry Cleaner!
Today we will have a look at Registry Life, another a free Registry Cleaning & Optimization Tool for Windows, which not only cleans up your Windows Registry, but also defragments the registry.
Registry Cleaning & Defragmentation Tool
Once you download and install this freeware Registry Life, you will find that it has a clean easy-to-understand user interface. The first time you run it, it will scan your Windows Registry and report the state it is in. This includes the orphaned registry keys as well as the fragmentation in the registry.
Clicking on the Run registry check button will scan your system and lay down the complete list of invalid registry keys along with the details which need to be deleted. It offers one unique feature. It allows you to view the key in the Registry Editor. It also lets you Save the list to you disk.
The Registry Optimization module will defragment the registry and compress it to make it more compact. You will be required to restart your computer once you start the process.
Should you need to reverse the changes, you can do so via its Undoing Changes Center. You can see a list of your back ups there and select the one you want to restore.
Overall the tool does look good, but as I have always maintained in all my posts, before using any new tool, it is always a good idea to quickly create a system restore point first or back up your Windows registry.
