Smart Registry Care

Smart Registry Care is recognized as a potentially unwanted program by some antimalware tools, so keeping it on the system might be not the best idea. It is not a malicious application, but we doubt you will have any use for it either. The tool is free only for seven days, and then you might be asked to purchase a full version. The strange part is that there seem to be some issues with the software’s payment system as at the moment it is impossible to buy Smart Registry Care. However, we would not recommend purchasing it anyway since the program is quite expensive and we do not think it can deliver what it promises. For more information about this application, we invite you to read the rest of the article. At the end of it, we will place removal instructions too, so feel free to use them if you wish to get rid of this questionable tool.

Let us start from the way Smart Registry Care could end up on your computer. Our specialists believe the potentially unwanted program might be distributed with bundled setup files available on suspicious file-sharing web pages. It is entirely possible some users could even allow the tool to settle in without realizing it. Such situations usually occur when users do not choose advanced installation options. Consequently, the user might be unable to see and deselect additional software that could be suggested on the setup wizard. If this is not the first time you receive unreliable applications unknowingly, you should pay more attention to the installation process. Plus, it is important you pick a trustworthy download source to get the installer and find some information, e.g. expert or user reviews that would help you determine whether the software works the way it should.

Smart Registry Care is being promoted on its official website available on smartregistrycare.com/en. The description of the program says it can make one’s computer work like it was brand new. According to it, Smart Registry Care does so by cleaning the Registry junk files and Internet junk. There is no proof removing no longer used Registry entries can influence the computer’s performance. On the contrary, if the program accidentally deletes necessary ones it might cause trouble. Therefore, computer specialist doubt Registry cleaners can be of any use.

What’s more, the website also says “It is a vital tool if you don't want costly hardware upgrades.” First of all the application is not exactly cheap if you compare its price (99 US dollars) with prices of reputable antimalware tools as they cost less or similarly. Not to mention both paid and free versions give more features and there are no ridiculously short free trials. Thus, obviously, we would not advise buying the full version.

All things considered, we see no use in keeping such an application on the system. Once seven days are over it will only remind you to purchase the full version and since it is even impossible to do so, we believe the best option is to erase this doubtful program. The application provides a working uninstall file, but we do not advise using it because removing the tool this way will leave junk data on the system. If you wish to get rid of the potentially unwanted program manually, it would be smarter to locate all files and Registry entries belonging to it on your own and eliminate them one by one. No need to worry if you do not know how to find such data as the instructions located at the end of the text will explain it to you.

Nonetheless, if you prefer deleting Smart Registry Care in a way that would require less effort, we could offer using a trustworthy security tool. Just acquire a legitimate antimalware application, set it to scan the PC and wait till the results show up. Among them, the user should see the potentially unwanted program. The report’s length depends on how many threats there are on the system. The best part is that you can easily erase all detections at once with a single mouse click.
