Wise Registry Cleaner Free
Fix Registry problems with a single click, but be prepared for side-effects

The most dangerous thing about using a Registry cleaning tool is to believe the hype that comes with it: if you take what you read as fact, running the tool and letting it delete dozens – if not hundreds – of supposedly obsolete entries will help you speed up your PC. On a severely clogged up computer this myth might even be proved true after the first couple of scans, but then strange things start to happen, which can’t be traced to an obvious cause and which ultimately cause more frustration than persevering with a slow computer.

Registry cleaning tools should be treated with caution, and Wise Registry Cleaner Free at least does that, allowing you to create both a System Restore point and backup of your Registry before you start using the program. The program will then scan your system for problematic entries and provide you with a summary where it tells you how many of these can be “safely” removed, and which ones should be left alone. Click Fix and the program automatically backs up the keys about to be removed, so if problems do occur, you can then restore your backup quickly and easily. Despite these fail-safes, we still recommend going through each of the categories manually reviewing what’s been marked for deletion, and unticking anything you don’t immediately recognise.

After deleting these entries, you’ll notice a defrag button: click this and the Registry files will be compacted and defragmented when you next start your PC – if performance can be improved, it’s here that it’ll actually happen, and you don’t need to delete any Registry entries to do so.

Recent changes include:

Wise Registry Cleaner 7.94
 - Fixed the occasional language match error.

Wise Registry Cleaner 7.93
 - Optimized cleaning categorization.
 - Improved the feature of language auto-match.
 - Updated translations and other minor bug fixes.
 

Verdict:

Competent Registry cleaning tool, with plenty of fail-safes should the program prove – like many other Registry cleaners – to be overzealous.

Worth It.

So I had this, like, computer problem. Obviously. It was like a software problem. So I used this and it was fixed. I am not saying this is good or bad, but it worked.

Serious note, it has a lot of features, and it did fix my drive opening at startup. Does a better job than CCleaner with the reg entries. Nice GUI too. All good.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
