Auslogics Registry Cleaner
Review Auslogics Registry Cleaner's findings before proceeding.

Registry cleaning utilities sell themselves as miraculous fix-it tools that can also speed up your PC. The truth rarely meets the hype and thanks to over-zealous cleaning techniques, running a Registry cleaning tool can actually cause more damage than good when it accidentally deletes a critical key that suddenly brings other programs crashing down.

Mindful of this, Auslogics Registry Cleaner adopts a safer approach, offering all the tools you need to scour through your entire Registry, but only enabling "safe" areas by default. And if that wasn't enough, it backs up everything that gets removed and takes a fail-safe Restore point allowing you to put things back if problems arise.

The program is simple to use: post installation, you'll be invited to scan your Registry for potential errors and redundant information. Auslogics Registry Cleaner clearly defines what areas it's scanning, and you'll see the riskier categories like Shared DLLs are unticked by default. Click Scan Now and off you go.

Once complete, your results are listed according to category and severity – click one to review which keys it's deleting, and untick any you think shouldn't be there. Once reviewed, verify "Back Up Changes" has been ticked and click Repair.

Once that's done – the repair process can take some time – you'll be shown a detailed list of what's been removed, and you'll be prompted to check your system state – this is little more than an attempt to get you to try Auslogics BoostSpeed, so ignore it.

If you run into problems, select File > Rescue Center to restore your backup. On its own, this is only half the story when it comes to cleaning your Registry – you now need to defrag and compact the Registry hive files too, which requires a separate product: Auslogics Registry Defrag.

Version 8.1.0.0 (Version History):

- Made some analytics improvements.
- All known bugs fixed.

Verdict:

We're not big fans of Registry cleaning tools, but Auslogics' effort at least has all the backup options you'll need. Shame it doesn't defrag and compact the Registry files too, though.

Windows 10 November 2019 Update ISO (build 1909)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

November 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1090 which is the November 2019 Update.
