VRRROOOOM! - From Snail to Cheetah in under 5 minutes. I had a mountain of issues suddenly appear on my PC, yet there were NO viruses, Adware or any of the 'usual suspects'. After the usual 'Google Hunt', I came across RegGenie and tried the demo version. It came up with in excess of 3000 errors. OK - I 'assumed' that it was exaggerating things in order to make me buy the full version. $29.95 isn't going to cripple me, so I 'took a chance'. After using the reg cleaner and reg defragger, my machine now runs like it's had a brand new reinstallation. Conclusion? Money well spent and a SPEEDY PC

My computer had been running slow for months. I tried Ad Aware and several other alternatives including defragging and deleting files. Nothing worked.. This was " like butta " as they say. As soon as it was easily installed I rebooted and sure enough I had my old PC back again ! It is faster than ever, programs are more responsive and all I can say is ... Thanks RegGinie ! You have a great product and one very happy customer.


"RegGenie worked wonders on my 'dinosaur', 12 year-old computer. It got rid
of so many outdated, unnecessary files, fixed so many broken paths and registry problems, and ended so much of the stalling and hanging of my system that my computer's increased speed was remarkable. Now that I have a new notebook, I will always use RegGenie to keep it running smoothly. Thanks!!"
