Comodo Registry Cleaner is an advanced Registry tool from Comodo, a company probably best known for its free firewall program.
The Registry Cleaner is offered as a beta release currently only on the Comodo forum and selected download portals.
The software program scans the Registry for various errors like links that are pointing to deleted files, font locations and pretty much everything coming up as an error in the Registry. Those entries that are found are later on displayed in a list. The user can check individual entries or clean them all in one go.
The Registry Cleaner is automatically creating a backup before cleaning the Registry. That way it is possible to restore the Registry to a state before the cleaning took place. The Windows XP and Vista Registry cleaner comes with another option called compact which compacts the Registry to reduce it's size.
It is recommended to compact the Registry after cleaning it for maximum performance gain. A smaller Registry can reduce system start and overall system performance.
Comodo Registry Cleaner is compatible to Windows XP and Windows Vista and supports both 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the operating systems.
Update: Comodo Registry Cleaner is no longer available as a standalone product. Comodo launched an all-in-one program for Windows instead. Comodo System Utilities includes the Registry cleaner component, but also an autorun manager, a shredder, or a disk cleaner.
The application is available as a free download from Comodo. The program is compatible with all versions of Microsoft's Windows operating system starting with Windows XP.
Please note that it needs to be installed before you can use it. The program displays the various tools it comes with in a sidebar on the left on start. Simply select one of the available tools, e.g. Registry Cleaner, and run a scan of the system to get started.
Comodo System Utilities lists the issues that it found, and gives you options to clean those right away, or to go through the list of issues to make a case by case selection before the clean up operation is run.
