When you feel your computer is no longer as fast as it was when you took it out of the box, this is most of the times due to various types of problems in the Registry, a database that holds most Windows settings and options. WinZip Registry Optimizer is intended to fix those issues and restore your system’s performance. The tool has a nice neat interface, and as most similar tools, it has various tabs that allow you to find the desired feature easily.
The application can scan the Registry and identify problems in such areas as lost file associations, invalid shortcuts and uninstalled entries. After the analysis is complete, you receive visual information on your system status and the program prompts you to fix the errors. However, it is a pity that only 25 of the problems found can be fixed by the trial version, which prevents assessing the real effects of the repairs. Fortunately, the tool can not only fix problems but also defragment the registry to reduce its size and optimize data retrieval from it.
Besides the registry, the application can also improve performance by allowing you to manage startup items. A wise selection of the programs and services that start along with the system can effectively reduce the time your computer takes to boot. Moreover, it can contribute to a more efficient usage of the available RAM. It is a good thing that you do not need to worry about keeping your system healthy, as it is possible to schedule frequent scans.
In a nutshell, it is difficult to tell exactly how effective WinZip Registry Optimizer is because the trial quota of only 25 errors fixed is not enough for this. However, the fact that it is developed by a well-known software company can hopefully be a guarantee of its quality. Moreover, you should know that this same company develops a suite that includes this tool and some other maintenance utilities.
