EasyCleaner v2.0.6.380

A Full Review of EasyCleaner, a Free Registry Cleaner

EasyCleaner is a free program suite composed of a number of "mini programs."

Aside from a registry cleaner, EasyCleaner is also a duplicate file finder, a startup manager, an invalid shortcut remover, and more.

The registry cleaner portion of EasyCleaner couldn't be easier to use. It's also very fast and even backs up the registry automatically.

This review is of EasyCleaner version Please let me know if there's a newer version I need to review.

My Thoughts on EasyCleaner

I think EasyCleaner is a great program. The registry cleaner is separate from the rest of the tools so you won't get confused or overwhelmed by the other features, which is great. I also like that it cleans up the errors very quickly.

I also like that EasyCleaner creates registry backups for you so you don't have to remember to do so. I'd think any registry cleaner would include a feature like this, but some actually don't.

To restore the registry, use the Undo button on the main program screen. The REG files will display in EasyCleaner and you can easily restore individual registry items or restore a whole REG backup at once.

One thing I don't like is that scanning for errors seems to take longer than with other registry cleaners I've used. However, deleting the errors is extremely quick, it's just scanning for errors that seems to take some time.

Also, I tried EasyCleaner in Windows 10, and while it would find all the errors, it wouldn't let me remove them.

All the other tools that come along with EasyCleaner's registry cleaner are also very useful. Overall, I think this is a really nice program
