I’ve had a couple of crashes on Vista in the last few days which is quite distressing. I know it’s usually caused by driver incompatibilities, but I wanted to make sure it’s not some corruption in the registry. Now, Micro$oft used to produce a registry cleaner called RegClean, but they discontinued this a few years ago, so I set about looking for an alternative I could run on my system.
One of the packages I came across is called the jv16 Powertools which contain a Windows Registry Cleaner as part of the suite. It looks pretty comprehensive as it contains a number of optimisation tools as well as a registry cleaner. Just to mention some, there’s a Disk Wiper, a Cookie Manager, a Registry Monitor and much much more.
It retails for under $30 for the home edition, but RegClean was free, so for now, I’ll just keep hunting for an alternative. Anyone know of any free ones out there ?
