The Windows registry is a database of instructions that software applications installed on your PC rely on to perform their functions. Filling a registry with invalid entries can negatively impact the speed and performance of your apps. That is why it is essential to have a registry cleaner tool installed on your device. Wise Registry Cleaner is one such tool.
Wise Registry Cleaner was developed by WiseCleaner (Lespeed Technology Ltd), a software company with offices in the US and China. WiseCleaner sells a wide variety of system optimization and security software products, and the Wise Registry Cleaner is one of the most popular.
We’re reviewing Wise Registry Cleaner to help you determine if it’s a good tool to use. Our rating is based on specific criteria including pricing, features, customer support, compatibility, etc.
Subscriptions and Prices
Wise Registry Cleaner is freemium software with “free” and “premium” versions. The free version has limited features compared to the premium version. Therefore, it is ideal to pay for the premium version to take full advantage of the software.
The premium version costs $30 for an annual license for one PC. However, WiseCleaner often gives $10 off to new buyers, making it $20 in the first year. You can pay for it directly on the WiseCleaner website via PayPal or a credit/debit card.
WiseCleaner offers a 60-day money-back guarantee on every purchase.
The primary function of Wise Registry Cleaner is what you can expect; finding and removing registry errors. The software scans your Windows registry for unnecessary or useless entries and lists everyone it finds. After that, you can delete these entries directly from the app.
There are three types of scans that Wise Registry Cleaner supports;
- Quick scan – Scans only safe registry entries, referencing entries created by legitimate software programs and the Windows operating system
- Deep scan – Scans all registry entries on your PC and points out the invalid ones
- Custom Area – You can choose the specific registry entries to scan
The quick scan takes a few minutes from start to finish, while the deep scan usually takes longer. The length of the custom area scan depends on the number of registry entries you select.
You can set schedules for the Wise Registry Cleaner to automatically scan your Windows registry for any errors. For example, you can set it to run an automatic scan every day at a specific time. You can also run it when your PC boots up.
Wise Registry Cleaner also allows you to defragment your Windows registry. Defragmentation involves physically organizing the registry’s contents into the smallest number of regions (or fragments). This way, any app that points to a registry entry will have to overcome fewer hurdles and thus run faster.
Interface and in use
We found it quite effortless to download, install and use Wise Registry Cleaner. You can download the installation file from WiseCleaner official website at any time. After that, run the installation file and the installation will begin. It took us about a minute to complete the installation and we launched the app immediately.
When launching Wise Registry Cleaner, you should notice its neat, uncluttered user interface. All of the app’s functions fit into just three menus, so there’s no stress finding someone. Any PC user can understand it easily.
One downside to the user interface, however, is that WiseCleaner advertises its other software tools in the app. These ads feel intrusive.
WiseCleaner provides customer support via email only. It also has a detailed FAQ page about Wise Registry Cleaner published online.
Common alternatives to Wise Registry Cleaner are Reviversoft Registry Reviver and Systweak Regclean Pro. These alternatives have similar features but are more expensive than Wise Registry Cleaner.
