Its rogue. Absolute crap.

It causes more damage than what it tries to fix.

Only reg cleaner I trust is CCleaner and a few other wll known ones.

WHat I really hate is the Netguide editor recommends it...

Idiot!

Idiot! :D Thats putting it politely - regcure causes more trouble than its worth.

Funny how as soon as its removed PC's generally run better, run Malware scans and guess what gets detected ;)

I find the absolutely safest and best way to clean up my registry - and I'm telling you, my computer runs nice and snappy for at least a few months afterward - is to backup my programs and data and.....format the system drive and reinstall Windows.

Works a treat.

Yes. But an image is faster

But doesn't an image include the same registry you're trying to clean up...?

You would have made an image from a fresh install.
