2 portable registry cleaners

Hi there and welcome at Fixya, the support team tip (lfete)

I will review 2 portable programs I use to clean computers:

  • Glary Utilities
  • Wise Registry Cleaner

Glary Utilities
At first I thought Glary Utilities is the same as Ccleaner, but after studying the suggestions of Glary Utilities, in terms of cleaning the registry, I could see that Glary Utilities finds different errors than CCleaner but is also safe to use. Because Glary Utilties is portable it was easy to test it on other machines without leaving any trace on the computer that the program has been there, and that is a thing I like very much. Remember, you do not want to spend time to install and then uninstall a registry cleaner.

Wise Registry Cleaner

Initially I used the installer version, not portable verison, of Wise Registry Cleaner, because at the time I did not know there is a portable version of Wise Registry Cleaner. However I am glad I used Wise Registry Cleaner, even though I had to install it, because it found around 400 entries to delete (safely) the first time I ran it, and it had a good explanation for what each entry is, what it is for, and what category it belongs to. If you do not know many things about registry try to scan your computer with this software, highlight individual entries, and see on the bottom of the window what it is for a file and why you can delete it; this way you can learn a lot about registry and registry cleaners. Of course if you scanned your computer for learning purposes only, you can always choose to not delete anything, closing the program after you read all the info. With Wise Registry Cleaner, only the registry entries which are "safe" to delete are checked for deleting by default; however you can always manually check the other entries there are a lot of possibilities here if you want to go further.

I use these programs I just mentioned to clean my computer and others. One of the biggest reasons I find them all so useful is all three have portable versions so you can have them on a USB stick and clean computer after computer without having to install anything. The other main reason I have used these to is because I havent had any problems after cleaning computers with them if I use the safe/default mode of course.
You can use them separately or together. Together they clean better, because in one way or another they each find different errors on the computer as they search in different ways.
Personally, I categorize them in the following 2 steps:

  1. Middle phase cleaning - Glary Utilities (at default settings)
  2. Deep cleaning - Wise Registry Cleaner (delete the safe ones (they are marked safe) registry files)

You can download the programs from the following links:

Hi there and welcome at Fixya, the support team (lfete)

please be sure that you do not download only the preview of the songs, normally you need to purchase for the songs :O) BUT you can use theese programs fully legal to download songs to your computer and then transfer them :
