Lishbos Registry Scanner

Lishbos Registry Scanner is a registry cleaner that is supposed to remove empty, unassociated registry keys and, thus, optimize your computer’s registry. However, we have discovered that this application is next to useless because it shows fake scan results to convince you that your PC have serious issues. This application is set to tease you by showing its scan results and offer you to buy the full version to clean the registry, but you should not buy it because there are programs that can perform a real scan and optimize the registry free of charge. It is evident that Lishbos Registry Scanner is a scam program to extract money from you, so do not buy it if you have it installed on your PC already. For more information, please read this whole article.

Let us begin our analysis with how this application is being distributed. This application was published by a company known as Lishbos.com which is located in Okhla, New Delhi, India. Whether or not this company physically exists, there is not known. For all we know, the address can be fake, and the company could be located in some person’s basement. Nevertheless, the developer has done a good job at developing and marketing Lishbos Registry Scanner because, unlike many other fake registry cleaners, it gives users a sense or reliability and trustworthiness. We believe that the developers have found freeware websites willing to bundle this program with free applications and set the installers to install this program automatically. Therefore, you should opt for advanced or custom installation settings and uncheck this program if you happen to encounter it. Also, you should avoid visiting questionable software distributing websites as they often bundle their programs with third-party additions to make money.

We have found that this application is featured on its very own dedicated distribution website at Lishbos.com. This website features to installers. One installer is https://lishbos.com/reg-software/registry-scanner.exe, and the other is at https://lishbos.com/reg-software/registry-scanner-01236541_silent.exe. We have found that the latter link is of a silent version that you cannot uninstall from Control Panel, so you have to delete all of this program’s files manually. For your convenience we will include a manual removal guide at the end of this article.

This program’s website claims that it has more than 10, 000, 00 users which is pretty far-fetched . The current version is 2.0, and it was last updated in March 2017. However, all those updates have not this program any better. Our research has shown that this application performs a fake scan of a computer and then claims that the Windows registry is damaged and that you need to fix them. Again, we want to state that the scan if fake as this program points to non-existent registry keys. Moreover, this unreliable program might delete good registry keys which might cause some of your programs not to work properly. Therefore, purchasing it for the $7 USD is a waste of money even though it does not cost that much. You can get a much better application for free, but we want to note that a registry cleaner does not impact a computer’s performance significantly. Furthermore, we want to point out that this program promotes a tech support phone number 1-800-887-7982. We do not know whether this number is actually tech support, but we assume that it is no good given the shady origins of this program. The techies on the other end of the line might encourage you to buy the full version of Lishbos Registry Scanner.

In closing, it is evident that Lishbos Registry Scanner is a useless program that is not worth the $7 USD asked. It shows fake scan results, and there is no guarantee that it will not delete good registry keys. Furthermore, its silent version does not show in Control Panel, so you have to remove all of its files manually. If you have this program and want to get rid of it, then we invite you to make use of the guide provided below.
