My Thoughts on Auslogics Registry Cleaner

First and foremost, I like that a Scan and Repair button is included because it allows for a 1-click clean of the registry, which some registry cleaning programs don't include. This button is revealed only if you click the arrow next to Scan Now.

I also appreciate the automatic registry backups because a vast majority of people would surely forget to make a backup if it weren't built into the program.

Before starting the install of this registry cleaner, setup tries to get you to install one or more other programs from Auslogics, but you can simply skip those offers to stop them from installing.
