Bytessence RegistryCleaner removes registry errors and boost system performance

As you install and uninstall software the registry will increase in size and will accumulate obsolete entries (also known as software rot). This will ultimately slow down your computer (because it will take more time to access certain registry areas), will lead to error messages and even crashes (for example when the system tries to access an inexistent file).

Bytessence RegistryCleaner (BRC) is a freeware registry cleaning utility designed to detect and remove errors from the Windows (Vista, 7 and XP, 32bit / 64bit) registry. BRC is a safe and simple to use and was designed for experts and beginners alike.

By default BRC will automatically create a registry backup and a restore point before fixing the errors. So if anything went wrong, you can restore the registry safely. Scanning process is very fast and requires a few system resources only.

This application can find and fix obsolete entries and errors from many registry areas including the component subsystem, application paths, drivers, file extensions, fonts, services and many others. Very fast scanning, light on system resources.

BRC is very simple to use. Just download (996Kb) and unzip it. Run the program by clicking BRC.exe, no installation required. For beginners default settings are enough.

Press the ‘Scan’ button to scan registry. After finishing the scan, it will display basic error advisory with flags. If the error has a green flag in front of it then the entry is safe to fix, otherwise if it has a yellow flag in front then it is not advised to fix the error (it is for experts only).

BRC also has some other advanced tools like Process, Service, Startup manager and Uninstallation utility. You can download BRC (Currently beta 1) from program’s home page.
