Eusing reg cleaner question
 
Hi.

A couple of weeks ago I downloaded Eusing free registry cleaner from the link in best free registry cleaner at this site. I recently installed it and everything is working well but when I installed it I got a pop up warning saying that it was not digitally signed. Is this a problem?

Thanks.

In many cases not being digitally signed isn't a problem, if it's a known application from a good source.

The Registry Cleaner category is however, being rewritten, and there will be a new recommendation when finished.

Wise Registry Cleaner Free and Auslogics Registry Cleaner are fighting it out for the top spot at the moment.

Any Registry cleaner can cause more problems than it solves. So it's always a good idea to have a System Image to fall back on if disaster strikes.

This site has a section dedicated to free Drive Imaging software if required.

Not to hijack the thread, but I wanted to give 2 recommendations if you are re-writing the registry cleaner page.

Before I do, I'm sure that you are going to give the normal caveats about backing up/making drive images and being extremely careful about what you are doing....

If you haven't considered EasyCleaner or RegScrubXP, I urge you to check them out. I've been using them for years; though much less over the past several months than I used to use. I'm becoming less and less convinced of even the need for such software. Regardless, both make backups of the registry entries they delete and both are very conservative.

I don't know if they have Windows 7 versions available or even 64 bit versions available.

Thanks for the advice.

@kendall
Thanks for the suggestions. I remember RegscrubXP from many years ago, and was a fan of the "misc" tab that contained loads of links and articles etc.
I learned a great deal from that tool! :cool: no support for X64, or later versions of Windows though!

Any and all recommendations are most welcome!
Please PM to make sure I get them :)

When messing with the Registry, along with restore points, system images, it's not a bad idea to use ERUNT free registry backup. I've been using it since NT 4 Server. It backs up certain registry hives only. When you restore you don't get a bunch of file changes. The readme included is a bit complex. But the best method of backup with it is to use the included AutoBackup program. Just stick a shortcut to it in your StartUp folder.

For example, I use this target line with it:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\ERUNT\AUTOBACK.EXE" %SystemRoot%\ERDNT\#Date# sysreg curuser otherusers /days:7

which creates a one week revolving backup. The oldest day gets deleted so there's no need to watch it for growing disk space usage. It's self regulating. Plus the restore program is on several of those emergency boot CDs.
