Although the Windows Add and Remove Programs feature is convenient and easy to use, it doesn't always do everything you need it to do. Most software you install alters a special file location on your hard drive called a registry by putting in additional entries related to the software you're installing. When you uninstall, some of those registry entries can be left over, increasing the workload of your computer with jobs that it either doesn't need to do or can't do, or both.
Main Features of Registry Booster
It does its work in three simple steps: a scan, during which it automatically finds registry errors; then a process where it removes unneeded registry entries and alters other entries; and finally a registry defragmentation, during which it relocates registry entries that should be adjacent to each other or farther apart for smoother, faster performance. It's very easy to use: just install it and run it.
One thing Registry Booster could use that it doesn't have is an undo feature. No matter how well-designed a software is, sometimes it causes your system to break because of your system's peculiarities, and in those cases it's good to be able to roll back any changes you made.
Pricing Options Available
Registry Booster is part of several Uniblue packages that are available on a one-year license. The Uniblue PowerSuite Pro 2013 is currently on discount at $59.95 per year and includes not only Registry Booster, but also several other programs that can help you run your computer faster.
Is Registry Booster Easy to Use?
Registry Booster can be installed in one of 13 languages and the install is fairly quick. It's easy to use, with an intuitive guided interface and several clearly outlined options. The Uniblue website does not offer a listing of benchmarks prior to and after use of Registry Booster, so its effectiveness is difficult to evaluate without installing it and using it; but effectiveness varies from computer to computer anyway.
Customer service is rudimentary but workable, with the user first being directed to a self-service knowledge database and then given the opportunity to create an email support ticket that receives a response within two days. There is no online support available.
