Comments on RegTidy

RegTidy is a questionable program; it is a "rogue scanner". In other words, it is one of those programs that advertises "download me and scan your computer to find problems". When a user downloads and scans their computer, RegTidy scans show misleading/excessive results. Then when a user wants to fix the "errors" RegTidy found, RegTidy tells the user to purchase a license in order to remove all the "errors". Now of course today from GOTD we are getting a full version license, so we will be able to remove the "errors" RegTidy finds. However, I see no reason why anyone should have to put up with a developer who adds to the scareware problem.

My advice: don't bother with RegTidy. Instead, grab TuneUp Utilities 2008, Glary Utilities, CCleaner, or Advanced SystemCare Free. CCleaner has always been a favorite of mine. Since TuneUp Utilities 2008 is an "old outdated" version, people running Windows 7 may want to avoid it, although I don't see it causing much problems.

As I've always stated, these types of utilities are unnecessary and dangerous. TrendProtect lists their anonymous website as dangerous. Notice in the third screenshot, near the bottom, it says "Registry Convoy is now taking a backup", not RegTidy.

Google is showing many pages this is not good software.
