If you are determined to risk registry cleaning, you might try Wise Registry Cleaner, Glary's registry cleaner, or the registry cleaner in CCleaner or the commercial Advanced System Mechanic. You may use Revo Uninstaller to completely remove the programs you installed immediately before trouble emerged or resort to accessing the registry backup you created before cleaning. Many of the cleaners allow creation of such backups from within the software..

Sooner or later, registry cleaning seems to result in a "gotcha." You will be glad you had system restore points when that day happens. I try to leave registry junk alone, use portable apps to avoid installs affecting the registry, and make a restore point prior to every software installation.

How do you determine what is safe to clean? Well, Wise Registry Cleaner rather gives you a screen which suggests what is purportedly completely safe to remove by the screen colors indicating safe ones. If you have any doubts, don't remove the registry entry.

Not that the advice will keep you completely safe! Backup your critical data files to an external hard drive before engaging in too much registry tampering. As you chase performance, cleaning suites sound like a good option, right up to the point you crash, then you are chasing recovery options.

Use of Sandboxes and Virtual Drives avoid some garbage collection but that far more than you have requested to know about.

Here is Comodo scanning the registry for wrong entryes.

Here has Comodo found 71 invalid registry keys

Comodo Ask you if you want to make a backup of the registry before you optimize it. Thats is a good thing.

4e4fcc5.jpg
The invalid registry keys are deleted, now you only thing is to restart the computer, when you press Done Comodo ask you about that.

6e5e061.jpg
after choose to restart now or restart later, does not matter, but when you restart the computer a window will appear from Comodo and here is the important thing: If your programs not working or the computer comes with errors, you just press Restore (registry)and restart the computer :O)
I must say, I am totally satisfied with Comodo System Cleaner and use it once a mounth.

Have a nice time over there :O)(O:

NB. It is always possible to restore the registry :o) just choose the Backup tab on the default window and here are all the backups. Remember Comodo System Cleaner are not only a registry cleaner, but much much more.

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.

Wise Registry Cleaner after cleaning the registry


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:

Have a nice time over there

Go to 'Run' and open 'cmd'

My feiends Dell Net book is very slow, I set the system back and Installed AVG removed Mal Wares it ran good, When i took it back it went to running very slow again~!! So do I have to wipe it and...


There are many free and effective registry cleaners. You can use Ccleaner (which I highly recommend). You can download Ccleaner from here (click here). It's bundled with System Cleaner, Registry Cleaner and other utilities. Run the System cleaner and the registry cleaner. Check the startups and also verify all the services from the Task Manager.

Sometimes some virus can't be removed if they really infected some files, in that case, you better reinstall the windows (full format), but remember, during the backup or file transfer, don't simply copy/paste, instead use the wizard like "backup" or "Files and Settings Transfer"..

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Very slow computer


First of all take an Anti virus and thoroughly clean your computer of Viruses because the Viruses can make your computer very slow. If you do not have an anti virus you can download free edition of AVG anti virus from the following link.
http://free.avg.com/ww-en/download-avg-anti-virus-free
Then take a good Registry cleaner. They are many registry cleaners being sold on the internet. Pick a good one and clean your registry it will add extra speed to your computer operation.
