The registry repair module is a polished and professional tool that does a complete Windows registry fix.

OverviewThe program presents a start screen which divides Windows maintenance into 6 parts;

  1. Increase Performance - These utilities provide the most speed by defragmenting the hard drive, removing unnecessary programs, accelerating surfing, compacting the registry and optimizing memory.
  2. Free up disk space - Unnecessary files and Windows function related garbage is removed. A disk space utility is provided to show which directories and files are using the most space so that the user can remove what he/she doesn't need.
  3. Maintain Windows - This set of operations insures trouble free performance by providing for registry repair and removal of temporary files.
  4. Solve Problems - In this section a disk doctor is provided to check the file system. The repair wizard diagnoses and repairs computer and display problems. The undelete utility gets back those files that you might have unintentionally deleted.
  5. Customize Windows - This section will let you set the look and feel of your system exactly the way you want it.

The registry cleaner is started from start screen in the Maintain Windows section. This section shows a brief summary of the status of all maintenance items.

It starts with a brief descriptive screen which summarizes the operations of the cleaner.

The cleaner will remove all unnecessary, obsolete and damaged information from the registry. Once this is done, system freezes and bugs will be reduced and performance will be improved. The rescue center is available here if needed.

A screen then appears which offers the choice of complete or selected item repair of the registry.

If complete is selected, it starts running immediately. A flashing arrow shows the type of data currently being analyzed.

Once the scan is complete, a summary page with counts of each type of error appears.

You can click on any of the types and get the details of the errors.

Some changes may cascade so that another run through of the cleaner is needed. The program keeps track of these items and will prompt you when another shorter rerun is needed.

As mentioned before, TuneUp Utilities 2010 backs up before making any changes. If necessary, the rescue center can be used to restore the system to the original state.


TuneUp Utilities 2010 provides a superior set of programs to manage all aspects of Windows maintenance. The registry cleaner is especially elegant and powerful. As they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating and you will find that running other registry cleaner programs will come up with a new set of errors for each of a series of runs. TuneUp Utilities 2010 comes up clean with no issues after a cleaning has been done indicating the thoroughness of this operation. This program is highly recommended.
