Registry cleaner roundup

Today we decided to check different registry booster and system optimizer in a small comparative .  As it is known , The Windows registry is a directory which stores settings and options for the operating system for Microsoft Windows 32-bit versions, 64-bit versions and Windows Mobile. It contains information and settings for all the hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, users, preferences of the PC, etc. Whenever a user makes changes to Control Panel settings, file associations, system policies, or most installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in the registry. The registry also provides a window into the operation of the kernel, exposing run-time information such as performance counters and currently active hardware.

In other words, the registry is the windows Database witch include all software and hardware setting , So most programs are splitted in two parts the first is the software itself while the second include the registry key\'s . Since most hardware and software setting are stored there the right setting will result in better optimization for different software and hardware programs .

After some use The windows registry is flooded with invalid key (temp registry , invalid entry ...) , and here come the registry cleaner witch scan , detect and eliminate invalid keys . Cleaner registry will result in better windows performance , due to the compact size (witch reduce the scan time ) , less over head entry ... and more disk space :-) .

Here is the list of windows registry scanner to be tested today :

2) Scan Time.

B ) Software performance :

In addition, we will check the system performance before and after Speedupmypc optimization .

How we tested :

We used a 3 month old windows (XP sp2 ) with different software installed (Copy from Ghost Image : Disk back up software) , then we installed all the listed above software one by one (each time a clean install (through the Ghost copy) was applied ).

The System  Used :

  • Processor : Intel E8500 45nm @ 4 GHz (500x8) .
  • Motherboard : Asus P5K Deluxe
  • Memory : Geil 8500 @ 500 MHz (4-4-4-12)

  • VGA : 8800 GT\'

The number of detected invalid keys :

This is currently the most important test since the Higher = Better .

  • Deep and folder scanning was disabled in all cleaners since some do not support this future .

The number of detected invalid keys

Eusing Free registry cleaner is leader here followed by NTcom3 , The second range include Registry mechanic , Registrybooster and Cleanmy PC , Microsoft TrgClean just fail in this test .

The memory Usage :

The memory Usage :

Registrybooster 2 Lead this test , in the same memory usage level we found also most other cleaner except Microsoft TreegClean and NTCOm3 PC .

RegistryBooster 2 and CleanMyPC == Gold Software\'s .

As promised we will check the impact of SpeedUpMyPc (3.5.24) in the system performance . First we will run some test without optimization then we run the software and compare the obtained result .

In this case we were limited to 3D 2001  (rather old benchmark), since it is one of the best software to check the overall system performance (memory , CPU , disk and cache system).

No optimization :

No optimization 3d2001

With optimization :
