The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 3.0
One of the most important parts of computer maintenance is cleaning and fixing the registry files. Registry Reviver offers an effective solution for solving this task.
The way Registry Reviver works is basically pretty simple.
It scans your registry files and then helps you fix all the errors that the program encounters. One of the things I like is that it allows me to determine the registry areas that it should scan, thus helping me save time.
A great thing about this program is that it will automatically create a system restore point before starting to repair the registry errors. Furthermore, its options allow you to create and organize an exclusion list. This is important as it helps users ensure that Registry Reviver won’t delete any files they might actually need.
Another feature that caught my interest was the startup manager that the program embeds. This will let you select the applications that are set to automatically start each time you reboot your system.
Moreover, this application enables you to manage the services that are running under your Windows. It should be mentioned that this program doesn't include a scan scheduler that might be useful in many situations.
In conclusion, I think that Registry Reviver is a decent application that is worth having. This tool is effective and if offers some handy extra functions, so it’s surely good enough to be a part of your utilities collection.
