Registry Repair is a free registry cleaner from Glarysoft, the company that also produces the file recovery software Glary Undelete and the file search tool called Quick Search.

Registry Repair is great because it creates registry backups automatically before removing any issues.

More About Registry Repair

  • Registry Repair is designed to work with Windows 8Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows ME, Windows NT, and Windows Server 2003, but I was also able to use it just fine with Windows 10
  • Problems are detected regarding obsolete software and issues with file extensions, startup programs, file associations, among many other things
  • Once errors are found, you can double-click the main category the error is placed in to see the specific reason for the issue, while right-clicking an error lets you open it in Registry Editor
  • Errors can be exported to a TXT file
  • Useful for advanced users, whole registry keys and single registry values can be set to be ignored by Registry Repair so errors that criteria aren't reported

Registry Repair Pros & Cons

Though it's not perfect, Registry Repair still works great and has unique features not found in some similar registry cleaners:

Pros:

  • Easy to use
  • Small download size (4 MB)
  • Removes issues quickly
  • Registry backups are created automatically
  • Program updates automatically

Cons:

  • No option to create a system restore point before cleaning the registry
  • May try to install unnecessary programs during setup

My Thoughts on Registry Repair

Registry Repair's program interface isn't cluttered with unnecessary tools, which is good because it makes cleaning the registry very simple.

I've noticed that this program scans my computer just as fast as similar registry cleaners, but it does clean the errors a bit quicker.

Something I wish Registry Repair did for free is schedule repairs. Fortunately, Wise Registry Cleaner, another free reg cleaner, does just that. So if that's something you're after, check out that program.

Note: After the installation of Registry Repair, you're asked if you'd like to run the program (this is typical) but you may also be asked if you'd like to install other programs from Glarysoft. Be sure to uncheck them if you're not interested.
