Hey Tech !

So if O&O does indeed defrag the registry with a boot time defrag then would you not agree Ntregopt + boot time defrag afterwards with O&O would be a good solution for SpeedyPC(if not the best) ?


EDIT: Forgot to mention, PerfectDisk can defrag the registry while in windows ... http://perfectdiskblog.typepad.com/perfectdisk_blog/2007/09/defrag-registry.html

It defrags the registry but all other files, it can take a while, it will delay boot time...
I was thinking in a solution to just defrag the registry. I use AusLogics and boot on Vista, on XP I have PageDefrag running at each boot (only system/registry files are defragmented).

then would you not agree Ntregopt + boot time defrag afterwards with O&O would be a good solution for SpeedyPC(if not the best) ?
Ntregopt works. AusLogics works. It's just an user choice.

Personally I use Tune Up Utilities 2008.

It does much more then defragment the registry of course. It's a bit expensive $49.95 but well worth it imo. You can download a 30 day trial from their site.

www.tune-up.com

*EDIT*
Looks like they dropped the price, it's now $39.95

I also occasionally use a registry compacter RegCompact, it compacts the registry hives, see image, it shows the file size before and after compacting. I have been using it for some time with no adverse effect. It used to be a free program, but now it is called RegCompact Pro (http://www.experimentalscene.com/) for the princely sum of $12, not much really, but there are probably tools that are free.

Edit: As you can see from my image some of my registry hives would benefit from compacting.

Tech,

1. I have O&O Defrag v10.1634 the latest to tidy up my HD which I am happy with no problem ;).

2. I have Wise Registry Cleaner v3.0 the latest and it very easy to handle, and it comes with a backup and restore registry.

3. I have Wise Disk Cleaner 3 for manual clean out once every 3 months which does a lot more than the ccleaner.

4. I have CCleaner v2.06.567 which run the ccleaner when the computer starts to clean out temporarily everyday used, and I never used the ccleaner register cleaner I find the Wise Registry Cleaner does a better job.

5. I have Revo Uninstaller v1.50 the latest which uninstalled the software and also clean out the register which left behind that belong to the software I am uninstalling, not the Window XP systerm register or anything that belong to MS XP Pro and than I used the Wise Registry Cleaner to make saw their are not registry trace left behind by the remain software I was uninstalling.

6. I backup the current registry with Wise Registry Cleaner.

The only thing is missing as I am not 100% sure myself DO I NEED another software called Registry Defrag is it worth getting it yes or no that is my main question in this current post. Go back to the first post I'm only talking about Registry Defrag only nothing else.

From 1 to 6 in this current post right now am I doing the right thing looking after my computer very carefully with damageing to the MS XP Pro registry I didn't say But you want defrag or clean? or both?.

And 7. I thought O&O Defrag does do registry defrag the answer still remain unknown to me.

I think it can only handle the registry files at boot time (off line), not in common defragmentations into Windows.
