Smart Registry Care is advertised as Registry cleaning tool for your PC with a tagline “the best tool to safely and effectively clear invalid entries from your Windows registries”. But the real fact is that using this tool can cause severe troubles in your PC. Though this tool professes to be a reliable and effective tool which facilitates you to improve computer’s health issues, functionality and solving various system bugs and issues, it barely provides any of the features which it promises and also try to trick users into buying the full version of Smart Registry Care.
That is why it is considered as potentially unwanted program (PUP). Smart Registry Care is developed by GNR Management Services Inc. This tool is represented as powerful system optimization tool which is meant to improve system’s performance if it runs slow, restarts randomly, encounters BSOD, software crashes or does not respond and further it should remove invalid entries from Windows registries, get ris of junk files and data, cache of browser and should perform all those activities which are required to boost system’s optimization level but unfortunately it doesn’t. Instead, it tricks you to spend large amount of money on useless product and its services.
There is yet no indicator denoting danger level for this tool, so it is kept under PUP category and deemed as rogue program. If you agree to purchase its full version then you have to pay $99.0 per year because company charges this amount to be paid by the user. However, it is strictly prohibited by the Microsoft Corporation not to use any tool which claims to clear out Windows Registry or perform other modifications because this can result in some serious trouble such as system’s instability. Also, you will find no difference in the scan results each time no matter how many times you scan your computer with this program.
How Does Smart Registry Care Work?
Smart Registry Care is a registry cleaner program that performs scan for a variety of categories which include ActiveX/COM, System Software, Shared Libraries, System Fonts and Startup Entry issues. When it has completed the scan, this tool will state that “your computer is at risk or is in critical state” then prompt a dialog box which asks you to fix the error.
Based on the facts, it is stated that registry cleaning provides no performance gain but can cause serious issues when registry is modified.
How Does This Tool Install On My Computer?
Unlike browser hijacker or adware program, it is quite possible to install such shady registry Cleaner or PC Optimizer directly from their official website because these web pages are very convincing which makes users into downloading its license key.
