Glary Utilities Registry Defrag

Has anyone used this? Im always reluctant to use registry defraggers but this program does state windows 7 support.

Hey Swarfega,

I have tried this software, and to tell the truth, it lasted about 2 days before being relegated to the recycle bin.

To me, it seems like a rip off of Tune Up Utilities, is the only software I have had issues with since running W7 (locked up my pc for a few minutes everytime I ran it.)

So, my experience says no go, better off waiting for Tune Up to catch up with Windows 7.

Just my 2 cents

The truth is that registry cleaners and registry defraggers are complete snake oil. That goes for Win7, Vista, XP whatever.

I have never seen any definitive explanation as to how they could create any benefit. Removing 100 or 200 lines from a registry hive will have absolutely no effect or benefit whatsoever. The problem is that the risk of damage is far greater than any promised benefit - of which there is none!

Not only have I seen no explanation I have also mot seen any (let alone any reliable) research or comparative tables as to any benefit.

Glary or Tune-up probably have good tools. Leave the registry alone!

Well this one completely ruined my Win7 install with a bsod at each startup. So I had to do a complete fresh installation since none of the repair options worked. What a waste of time those programs are.

Let's ask MS :

Why should I clean my registry?

Over time, the Windows Registry can begin to contain information that's no longer valid. Maybe you uninstalled an application without using the Add or Remove Programs function in the Control Panel, or perhaps an object or file in the registry got moved. Eventually this orphaned or misplaced information accumulates and begins to clog your registry, potentially slowing down your PC and causing error messages and system crashes. You might also notice that your PC's startup process is slower than it used to be. Cleaning your registry is the easiest way to help avoid these common problems.

It may be from MS but they are the same as any other company, add a tool which all the other competitors claims will work to speed up your system, give an explanation that is the same non-technical claim that all the competitors make and which sounds as if it makes sense, then DON'T back it up with any evidence, no link to any evidence that it is true (even tho you have vast resources) - so that you can sell the tool.

Somewhere someone explained it that a Registry Cleaner was like sweeping one parking space in a car park the size of Nevada.

The other thing is that most of the entries these things find are passed over instantly because they don't "link" to anything.

I still reckon the test is to see some, lets say ANY reputable performance or benefit testing. I've never seen any claims backed up by even a skerrick of evidence.

To play devil's advocate.

The fact one care is being withdrawn is totally irrelevant - it has nothing to do with the registry cleaner or the subject in question.

That is a statement from MS in black and white.

I for one, would not like to say they are lying for commercial gain.

It was posted for anybody who would like to know what the makers of the operating system have to say on the subject.

I like to try and keep an open mind.
