FREE REG CLEANERS!
« on: January 26, 2005, 05:31:07 PM »
I've heard that there were a couple of really good FREE registry cleaners available, does anyone have any experience using any of them, and if so what are the names and sites I might find them at?  Another thing is when software comes in a zipfile form and you don't have a program designed for opening them (like WinZip) how do you "unzip" them?

RegCleaner 4.3.0.780
BeClean 1.4

Unzip?
Use 7-Zip 4.15 beta. Besides it's a beta, it's very stable, save and powerful  ;)

Firist of all thanks for getting back to me so soon!!  You guys are amazing!!  I'm going to look for both of those programs, now as I said I don't have a unzip program the reason being that my pc is only a Pentium 2  (128 mb) and I'm using 96% of that available memory so I really can't download anything that would require a lot to run.  I hope these programs are in a regular downloadable form or I may be out of luck!  I'll check them out though.  Isn't there a way to open zipfiles in Explorer, Notepad etc?

Download section and than the registry cleaner.
It is small, fast, easy to use.

Although not supported officially by Microsoft, it is created by their programmers !
And they are the ones who should know 'everything' about the registry.

If you visit my website, I suggest also to get the 'Windows registry manual/tutorial'.
Very interesting and most (all?) people can learn from it when it comes to the registry.

Hello Scorpioninblue.
The regcleaner, you allready have.
As for the unzip-program: this one uses NO memory nonwhatsoever, is free and works perfect !
Downloadsize is 253kb and I use it for about 3 years without any troubles.

Eddy,

Just checking with you about that registry cleaner, first of all couldn't open up the zipfile, so I went to www.download.com and found it but I have a question will it work on Windows 2000 Professional NT?   Some of the users said it wasn' designed for anything past Windows 98, and they also said you could trash you're registry by using it on more recent programs.  Naturally I trust your opinion or that of any others wizards there.  Thanks!

Looks like a corrupted download. I just checked and the .exe is extracting the files without a problem here.

It works on Windows 95/98/NT/2000. With NT you need to have SP5 installed though.

Sorry about my lack of expertise, but what is an Sp5?  Where would I get it?  How would I know if my program has it, this p.c. was a hand me down from my brother, I  have no disk.

Windows NT SP5 = Service Pack 5 installed, I suppose.
It's not a program but a service pack for update your operational system (if you have NT).

I'm pretty sure I'm up to date with that, but will go to Microsoft now and check things out.  Thanks!

RegCleaner 4.3.0.780 said by Technical is considered one of the bests. But the author of the program upgraded it to jv16 Power Tools. This programa now is a pay one, but in it´s first times was free. I keep a copy of that free version in www.fistro.com/lazaro

It´s in many language, of course in english and spanish ^_^U
