Registry Life is a free Registry Cleaning & Optimization Tool for Windows

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

Registry Life

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.

    To be sure, if one is uncertain about any key(s) they should leave it/them alone, as obviously one can mess up a lot more than can sometimes be fixed. On the other hand, a case FOR cleaning the registry exists: when a bunch of ACTUALLY useless keys exist they use more microseconds in reading time, or sometimes programs won’t load/re-load unless all prior relevant keys are gone.

    Today I found more reason to look into the registry. For months, I’d banged my head (as did EditShare forum members) unable to figure out why I couldn’t download any more betas of Lightworks; their site kept insisting I had an “invalid token” but no one knew why; checked IIS, Kerberos, etc., no reason showing there; today it turned out that with IE 11 for Windows 7 and its enabled Windows Integrated Authentication on 64 bit, just the mere presence of two well-buried old EditShare keys were the cause…remove the two empty keys, “invalid token” gone and all is normal again re beta downloads.

    Also today, I then found some old IVSedits keys which were causing svchost to slowly accumulate a small but ongoing handle leak in trying to find the drivers the keys related to; remove these keys, handle leak gone.

    So it is important to keep a Windows registry in shape. But even my own two examples didn’t show up in CCleaner or Advanced Uninstaller scans; if one gets a reg cleaner that does “find it all”, yet just assumes ALL found can be deleted, damage could ensue; first be sure a Windows key wasn’t renamed by another app, or that any/all scanned keys aren’t shared otherwise.

  2. Nice points! Most reputed registry cleaners will play safe and clean out only the registry keys they are sure of. As a result one still sees keys of software one uninstalled long back. 🙂
