All Windows users know how important it is to keep a healthy and clean registry as the only way to guarantee a smooth and seamless performance. Registry Reviver offers you all the utilities you need to detect all those registry-related issues that may be slowing down your PC. Startup items, shared DLLs, file associations, broken entries, program shortcuts, uninstall entries, etc., are easily detected and fixed in a few simple and guided steps.

The program’s attractive and intuitive interface includes a wizard-like scan-and-fix utility that will take you through a clear and hassle-free 3-step scanning and cleaning process. On the first step you can decide which issues you wish to identify and get rid of, or perform a “Deep Scan” that will search your Windows Registry thoroughly for potential threats. The scan process itself is fast and reliable, detailing all issues encountered during the search process. The scan report lists all the potential problems found, categorized them into clearly-defined sections, and rates each of these according to the impact they may have on your system’s performance. You can choose to fix all of those issues in a one-click operation or fix selected items only.

As a bonus, Registry Reviver comes with a series of tools that will allow you to improve your computer’s performance simply performing a few simple operations. The StartUp Manager lists all those programs that are set to launch immediately after Windows startup, letting you enable and disable each of them individually. It provides you with valuable information about the program’s manufacturer, though less savvy users will miss some guidance about how needed each of those startup items really are for the well functioning of their computer. The Registry Optimizer will check your registry for defragmentation issues, analyzing and defragging it when needed. The Scheduler will allow you to set the program to perform a regular maintenance on your registry without your intervention. Finally, the File Extension Manager will let you check which extensions are associated to which programs (if any), as well as set your own file associations.

Unlike most trial versions of similar tools, Registry Reviver does fix any issues found during the scan process. However, these changes don’t need to be final – you can always use the program’s Restore option to roll back all changes made on your Windows Registry and leave things as they were. All in all, Registry Reviver is an excellent choice when it comes to speed, reliability, and effectiveness.
