Windows 7: Should I buy "Registry Booster"

Google Ads. Stay away from them. They are the worst ads you can click because they aren't maintained by sevenforums, but by Google. I have many times seen horrible crap in those ads.

And as for a registry cleaner, no. I'm well aware that it is an old adage, if you want it done right, you've got to do it yourself. At this point in time, this definitely applies to software. You cannot rely on software alone to speed up your old computer. You need more RAM if your machine is deathly slow. That, and/or a nice reformat and clean OS reinstall.

"and it's showing the same registry error results for both" <- That, is a sure sign of a scam. This is an old trick I've seen done many times. There is just simply no way that both machines have the EXACT same registry database unless you cloned one drive onto the other or something. And basing off the fact that you have an older and a newer machine, I very highly doubt that. It is a play on the general ignorance about how computers function. The company knows that if you don't like the results, most would blame it on the software they put on it, not their product.
