EB's Review of Reg Organizer
TC is the one who goes on web searches to promote, or more often then not, to discredit software that folks write to us about. He is the one who finds freeware to share (or again, discredit), useful software, and software to run and hide from. Once he decides if a program is worth sharing, or warn our readers about, he has me run tests to make sure we get the same results and findings.
Most recently, TC found a registry organizer program called, umm.... Registry Organizer. Oh geesh.. here we go again, sacrificing our computers to test something that could totally destroy a computer to the point of needing a reinstall of Windows. I put it off the first couple of times he asked, but he kept after me.. "you have to try this program... it really works and makes a difference!" I know the only way to get TC off my back is to test the program.. and I will tell you right out - I HATE testing or using anything that messes with the registry. I have fixed a lot of botched systems of customers who have used programs that tamper with the registry, including my own.
I have three machines: XP which I use the most (I don't like change), Windows 7 which I often reference for our Direct Care Service, and Windows 8, so I am up on the latest operating system. I decide I will sacrifice the Windows 7 computer since it has not updated since November 2012. Yes, I am a computer tech and I have a computer that has been neglected ... its like the mechanic who drives an old car that barely runs. Sometimes we just don't have time to work on our own stuff! This Win7 machine has been a headache for over a year and half. If I update it, it won't boot into windows, so every time I would try to update, I ended up having to do a system restore to reverse the updates. If I turned it off, or rebooted, it would take an hour or more to get back into windows. It has not been turned off in over 6 months. So, I decide this is the machine to sacrifice on what TC calls this "great new program".
First it finds over 4000 problems/errors/stuff to optimize. Sure I think.. probably found a bunch of temp files and cookies like most of these kind of programs. So, I do a complete cleanup of my system manually, and run Registry Organizer again and it still finds over 4000 issues! I am still skeptical as always, especially with any kind of program with the word "registry" in it. So, I do a scan on my XP machine, figuring it will find the same amount of problems. Been there.. seen that, right? Hmmm.. it only found a small number of problems, nothing serious. Ok.. time to give it a go, so I let it fix/repair/optimize Windows 7. I am sure I will end up with a computer that won't boot.. but much to my surprise, it rebooted in just over a minute. No way! Wow! I am really surprised I have to admit. I am just about sold. Now to see about those updates. .. 90 critical ones on the list. I do the updates, it takes a few hours, and now I have a smooth running Windows 7 system that boots in a minute to two. I'm sold, and if you ask TC he will tell you I am a hard sell!
