The application creates backups of the Registry automatically. It furthermore creates backups whenever a module is run or a setting changed so that it is always possible to restore the system.

The following modules are included in the application:

  • Registry Cleaner - Scans the Windows Registry for errors, excess entries and other problems and offers to correct them.
  • Disk Cleaner - Scans the hard drive for temporary files and invalid shortcuts.
  • Privacy Cleaner, Scans for privacy related data and information, for instance recent documents, browser history, caches and application specific information.

      My trial license of tune up utilities is about to expire. I was looking for an alternative and found this software, is it worth trying?

        The download contains all languages as far as I know. I downloaded the file from the site and it was English when I launched it.

      i am always interested in new system maintenance programs and thought that this looked quite interesting…i’m running win 7 home premium on a laptop… i downloaded the portable version to test. upon starting the program i was asked if i wanted to turn on system restore…i clicked yes and after a few moments it told me that it could not do that. after clicking cancel it promptly started to scan the computer. after doing the registry scan it told me i had over 2200 errors…at that point i stopped the scan…that has to be the most aggressive scan i have ever seen…it found so many errors regarding cakewalk (a midi and audio program) and i’m sure if i had let it clean the registry cakewalk would not have continued to run. i decided to delete the file and was blocked…i tried to take ownership and that was blocked…the only way i could delete it was to reboot in safe mode….my thoughts are to proceed with caution….harris

        It probably was blocked because it was running in the background? I was able to delete the portable folder without problems.
