Cleaning the registry of your computer is vital to its health and reliability. Manually going through and cleaning out your computer’s registry can be a nightmare! Deleting one listing in your registry can disrupt and even remove several other things on your computer. This is just one of the reasons you should get a registry cleaning software. The choices are endless when it comes to locating such a program, but finding the one for you might be easier than you thought. A popular, helpful and easy-to-use program to consider is Registry Mechanic.
Registry Mechanic is a PC Tools product and the most recent version is Registry Mechanic 8. This version is compatible with Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista 32-bit versions and Windows Vista 64-bit version. They also have a separate downloadable version of it for Windows 98.
Registry Mechanic’s download runs quick and very easily for even those new to computer using. You simply click the download button, select Run, pick the options you want installed with the program and follow the wizard to get it installed and running.
This is a well designed program for registry cleaning. I cannot stress enough how great it is for beginners and experts alike. Like other PC Tools programs, once Registry Mechanic has completed installation it will run an update to insure you have the latest version installed. Once you get that taken care of you are free to run the registry scan and repair anything found with a click of the mouse!
Registry Mechanic runs a thorough scan of your computer’s registry locating anything that could be harmful or suspicious. Along with locating these errors, Registry Mechanic locates missing or invalid references in your registry. Everything this program finds is listed on the results page with details and the option to view manually for further details. I trust this program because it is from PC Tools so I go ahead and use the Repair All button every time. This saves a great deal of time and effort.
Registry Mechanic is an award winning program for several reasons. I give it 2 thumbs up and recommend it highly.
Spyware Doctor is a great tool to remove spyware from your computer. It is very important to keep your computer spyware free to prevent errors and crashes. Spyware and adware can be very dangerous to your computer’s health and that is why you can let Spyware Doctor cure it!
Spyware Doctor has won many prestigious awards in the software field. Some of these awards include PC World best program and PC Magazine’s Editor’s Choice. But it’s not just the experts that love Spyware Doctor, tons of everyday computer users agree that it is a great program.
The download of Spyware Doctor is quick and very simple. Right after the program finishes installation, it runs an update check to insure that you are getting the latest version of Spyware Doctor. This is a great feature to have so you don’t have to manually check for an update. Once Spyware Doctor is fully up to date you can open the program.
Another very helpful feature of Spyware Doctor is the Quick Start Guide. This is available to help you become familiar with the buttons, terms and navigation used in the program. There is also a Help menu for further information should you need more assistance.
PC Tools has made Spyware Doctor easy to manage for any computer user, this is made obvious when you see the home page, or interface, of the program. The System Status on the interface lists facts and numbers about your computer that can be both interesting and helpful. The buttons are easy to understand and there is virtually no confusion to be had. The most used button will most likely be your Start Scan Now button which is right there at the top.
My personal favorite part of Spyware Doctor is that is does NOT slow down your computer while it is performing a scan like several other spyware/adware programs do. Because it does not slow down your computer you can sit there and run other programs or browse the Internet while it works rather than just leave the computer until it’s finished!
There is more to Spyware Doctor than meets the eye. This program has many different features and things that it scans and repairs. This program uses IntelliGuard to protect your computer from malicious ActiveX particles. It will also remove tracking cookies, dialers, Trojans, and keyloggers from your PC while IntelliGuard is active.
Spyware Doctor is a great program and I am proud to have tested it out. Again, this program is great for all computer users alike and can really save you time and money when it comes to having spyware, adware, cookies and more.
