Registry Dr.

If you must use a registry optimization tool, then check out at least three reliable sources to make sure that the program can be trusted. There are a lot of system optimization tools like Registry Dr. that are not computer infections, and yet the question remains whether they really are as useful as they claim to be. Therefore, it is categorized as potentially unwanted program and if you have it installed on your computer, it would be in your best interest to remove Registry Dr. entirely. In case you have installed it with additional freeware applications, remove them as well.

There are reports that say users have installed Registry Dr. onto their computer accidentally, when it came bundled with freeware. It is a very likely option, because free of charge applications are often distributed in packs, even if they do have official websites. In such a case it is more than obvious that you need to uninstall Registry Dr. from your computer.

However, it is also possible to come across the main home page for Registry Dr. at registrydr.com accidentally, when you browse the Internet. The website looks reliable and sophisticated, and you are introduced to the main features of the program. In short, Registry Dr. is presented as a useful computer optimization tool that will improve your computer speed, safeguard your browser and even removal malicious applications that might be present on your computer. However, please pay attention to the fact that although it is very easy to download the program from the website, some of the hyperlinks embedded in the page are broken.

Also, there is an older version of the site accessible at registry-dr.com. It also has the program’s sample, but it is outdated. Our security researchers also suggest that the creator of Registry Dr. may not be as reliable as it might seem. At its own official home page via atsh.co it does not offer any mailing address, and the website’s design does not look too sophisticated.

The program itself is very far from being a malware application. It runs a full system scan in order to determine whether you have any registry errors present, but the question is whether its scan is reliable. Based on our research, Registry Dr. “detects” registry errors even on a clean computer. It seems that the main reason why Registry Dr. enters the PC is money, as in order to fix those supposed errors, you are expected to purchase the full version of the program for $39, transferring the payment via PayPal.

You are not obliged to do so. In fact, rather than being useful Registry Dr. mainly takes up the space on your hard drive. Thus, uninstall the program from your computer and then invest in a licensed antimalware application that will really help you safeguard your computer from harm.
