Speed up your PC by optimizing the Registry.
The Windows Registry is a major cause of system slowdowns, and
can potentially lead to system crashes and conflicts. When you
install or upgrade software, that software writes information to
the Registry. So the more software you install and uninstall, the
more clogged your Registry becomes, and the more problems your PC
Sammsoft’s Advanced Registry Optimizer 2010 peers into your
Registry, uncovers problems, reports on what it finds, and fixes
them for you. It also backs up your Registry, so that if any
problems occur after cleanup, you can easily revert to the previous
version of the Registry.
It offers as little or as much customization as you want. You
can, for example, use the one-click option that scans and fixes all

important to you, you may consider paying $30. Otherwise, you’ll do
well to use CCleaner, which has other system-cleaning tools in
addition to a Registry cleaner.
The trial version of Advanced Registry Optimizer 2010 will only
clean up 100 Registry errors. To fix the rest, you’ll have to pay
for the full version of the product.
