Full review

Setup

The installation process is quick and easy. The on screen prompts guide you through the process and the setup is complete within a few minutes. Once the installation the software runs an initial scan to determine the current state of the registry and provides you with information regarding the results of the scan.

Scanning

The scanning process runs primarily in the background and uses minimal system resources. Scans are usually complete within a very short period of time. Once the scan is completed, the software displays an overview of all the errors found and prompts you to make a decision on whether or not you want the software to alter the registry to fix the detected errors.

Effectiveness

Registry First Aid effectively cleans and repairs your registry to ensure that your computer is running to its full potential. The application’s registry-cleaning tools thoroughly scan the registry and ensure that all application paths are correct. However, it lacks comprehensive scanning abilities seen in more advanced registry cleaner software. For instance, it does not detect or repair corrupt files in the registry.

Safety

One of the biggest risks associated with making changes to the registry is causing an unstable system. Registry First Aid ensures that any incorrect changes to the registry can be corrected as it backs up the Windows registry before making any changes to the registry.

Features

Scheduler : This is a standard feature that allows you to set specific times for scans and registry maintenance to run so you don’t have to do it manually. Along with the scheduler, there is an exclusion capability which allows you to select certain files and folders to be excluded from the scans.

Ease of use

The software is designed for experienced users, but once you familiarise yourself with the interface it is fairly simple to use. The user interface is broken down into three categories, each of which has its own separate options page. The overall interface isn’t as straight forward to use as most of the other registry cleaner software in the market, but it does get easier to use once you learn how to navigate the software.

Help & support

A decent number of customer support options are available. The online FAQs section contains useful information on commonly encountered issues with the product. The website also contains valuable demos on how to use the software’s features and settings. Further, customer support can be directly contacted via email if you cannot find an answer to your problem.

Overall

Registry First Aid is an effective application equipped with a range of essential features. The software doesn’t provide you with any advanced tools and it does have a slight learning curve. However, once you familiarise yourself with the software, it is a viable registry repair software option.
