Hold on a second when you want to click that download button on what they claim as free registry cleaner and repairer. Internet scam might lurk beneath it. Before we move further, I should make things clear first. Honestly, what are you expecting from a free registry cleaner and repairer?A free software for Windows registry maintenance and repairing am I right? And you expect that a so-called free registry cleaner will do it for you? You are wrong.Most of the so-called free registry cleaners are basically just trial versions with limited function that will only grant you scanning function but not repair. So after they astound you with thousands of error findings and alarm you that those errors will cause your system instability, they ask you to pay for the full version to remove the problems. Is it what you want for your free registry cleaner? Of course not, I believe.
All of the fly-by-night registry cleaner publishers have the mission to sell their products for whatever cost including misleading and even scamming you. The silly thing is they even admit their scamming activities. Misleading information can simply reflect on the high amount of errors found in your system by these registry cleaners. The truth is most of the errors in the report are just false positives, entries that have nothing wrong with them. In fact, if these entries are removed, there will be something wrong with your system. Instead of removing your problems, it adds some more problems. Moreover, you should be suspicious that it might be the product itself that injects such problems inside your untroubled system. Deceptive isn’t it?
Don’t just take my word for it. Visit any security software publisher like Symantec, Trend Micro, or AVG and see for yourself how many registry cleaners related to internet threats. For instance just a couple of weeks ago, my Norton Internet Security 2009 discovered that one of the registry cleaners I tested on my system called FixTool aka Perfect Optimizer is categorized as misleading application with medium level of risk. Mind you that medium is quite dangerous if you want a stable PC. Symantec refers this registry cleaner as “a misleading application that may give exaggerated reports of errors on the computer.” So how much can exaggerated reports from FixTool or the like destroy your PC? Well if certain software says that you got thousands of errors that could lead your system into instability and further slow its performance down while in reality what it really does is removing important Windows files due to its bad algorithm engine, your Windows will be badly damaged only because you believe its claim.
In order for you to get a full scope of our discussion, I suggest you to point your browser to reputable consumer forums where user like you and me gather and discuss a product there. Ok, one or two dissatisfied customers with certain problem like transaction process might show up. But if lots of customers echo the same thing over and over again, then you should be extremely careful to go further with the software. FixTool that is alarmed by Symantec as a misleading software is not alone, there are dozens like it. Have your guard prepared. Look around, find in this article directory for instance any article that promote a registry cleaner with a name that you never even heard of, offer free download, get so many buzz by internet marketers but quiet on the big name medias like PC Magazine, PC World, or CNet, and those that unsurprisingly got high red mark in complaint board for its customer dissatisfaction. You will get an idea of how big the brotherhood of scamming in the internet really is.
As a conclusion if what you want is a truly free registry cleaner, actually it is so hard to find one in the time where there are so many scams are spamming the keyword of “free registry cleaner” and the like while actually only very small that really exist. Certain software do offer you free legitimate service like IObit Advanced System Care, but it only offers you smaller number of errors that can be found and fixed. The twist is you should pay more to buy its upgraded version which unsurprisingly scan and fix better. See there you have a marketing game. But don’t despair, software like CCleaner are available absolutely free for you to download without any twist. But make sure your purpose in cleaning your registry is right. Because if you need a registry cleaner to optimize your system, you will absolutely be disappointed. Software like Perfect Optimizer and RegCure always tease you with its promises to boost your pc performace, but very little do their ability can materialize. Read my article on why you need more than a registry cleaner to optimize your system.
