Decades ago Matt Pietrek first wrote an article in MSDN about the junk entries in Windows registry and also gave a sample C++ program to find or remove them. Other developers picked up on the idea and soon the internet was filled with dozens of “registry cleaner” programs. Some of these programs claimed to boost the system performance by cleaning the registry entries but over the years this claim has been proven to be false. Today if you want to use a registry cleaner program then you should know that all it does is clean the left over entries and may not improve the system performance at all.
Registry Life from ChemTable software is a registry cleaner program that can find and remove the junk entries in the Windows registry. It can also optimize the registry files by defragmenting them. The program opens up with both of these options being displayed in the main window. You can run the registry check and have it scan your computer for all the registry related problems.
It goes through the Windows registry and looks for orphan or obsolete entries in various sections like startup entries, file type associations, shared libraries, new file menu, application data, MUI cache, IE context menu, registered applications, user-wide applications settings, control parameters sets, and recently used files. You can fix these problems as soon as they are found.
Registry Life is also able to defragment and optimize the registry files in Windows. It is supposed to make the Windows registry load faster but should be avoided if you are using an SSD storage for the Windows installation. This is because repeated defragmenting of files on an SSD will only make the life shorter for the storage drive without giving any significant advantages.
