Review of RegistryBooster
The RegistryBooster registry optimization application is no longer available as a separate app. The guts of the program however, are now packed into the SpeedUpMyPC PC optimization program making that a very powerful tool to refresh your computer to make it feel like new again.
RegistryBooster claims to speed up your computer by optimizing the registry. This utility is part of the Uniblue PowerSuite computer optimization program. This review of RegistryBooster will put their claims to the test.
This is the same computer used to review the Uniblue SpeedUpMyPC computer optimization program. The computer is loaded with Windows Vista Ultimate and has an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU running at 1.86GHz with one Gigabyte of memory. Let’s see if optimizing the registry can give it even more speed. The Windows Task Manager shows that the PC is using 343 Megabytes of memory, running 49 processes and it boots up to a usable desktop in 55 seconds.
The first thing to do is download and install RegistryBooster . It offers a Free Scan so you can try it to see if your registry is corrupt. If it isn’t corrupt, there is no need to buy the utility but if there are problems with your registry you will need to purchase RegistryBooster to fix any problems the program may find. Uniblue uses the Microsoft.NET framework to install thier software so if you do not have the latest version, you will be prompted to install the framework. It is Okay - It's a Microsoft product.
Here is a screenshot of the new InstallAware Wizard that Uniblue uses for installation of their products.
The installation was a snap and when it was finished Registry Booster automatically started a scan of the registry. Here are the results of the scan. RegistryBooster found 150 registry errors or problems with the registry on this computer. Seeing how Uniblue is a Microsoft Gold Certified partner, I trusted it to do a complete cleanup of the registry so I smacked the Clean Registry button.
After clicking the Clean Registry button, the following screen popped up telling me that as a safety precaution, a complete backup of the registry should be performed. I thought that was a good idea so I clicked Yes to take a full as well as a partial backup of the registry.
When the registry repair was finished, it told me so. I clicked OK.
Then I was shown the Registry Cleanup Results. RegistryBooster found 150 registry errors and cleaned 150 registry errors. The program recommended that I restart the computer so I quickly saved this web page and smacked the Restart Now button.
After the reboot, I started the program and was reminded that my registry has never been defragged. The recommendation was to improve system performance; the registry should be defragged regularly. I was also told that a reboot would be needed and that defragging the registry could not be canceled so I saved this web page. I wanted to improve the system performance so I clicked the Defrag Registry button.
After the reboot, I shut down the computer and did a cold start. The boot time is now 50 seconds which is a five second faster boot speed. That is a noticeable improvement just from running RegistryBooster 2009. The Windows Task Manager also tells a story. The total memory usage dropped from 343 Megabytes down to 329 Megabytes which is also quite an improvement. The improvement stemmed just from fixing 150 registry errors and defragging the registry!
This was a pretty fast computer to begin with but RegistryBooster did just what it claimed that it could do; optimize the computer by optimizing the registry to its peak performance. For that reason RegistryBooster gets an honorable Brontobyte on a scale of bytes to Brontobytes. This is a recommended registry optimization program to have in your toolbox.
The UniBlue PowerSuite 2013
A computer needs to be cleaned up in more ways than the average person has time for. The file system needs to optimized at regular intervals. The hard drive needs defragmenting. The registry needs to be defragged and optimized. Outdated system device drivers can slow your PC to a crawl. The UniBlue PowerSuite combines MaxiDisk, a new version of SpeedUpMyPC 2013 that combines all of the functionality of RegistryBooster into one package and DriverScanner 2013 all for one low price in one easy to use package to keep your computer running at its peak performance.
