Uniblue RegistryBooster

What is Uniblue RegistryBooster?

Uniblue RegistryBooster is registry utility whose purported purpose is to remove redundant items from the Windows registry. The software helps to automate the process of looking for invalid entries, missing file references or broken links within the registry and resolving or removing them. The program is designed to fix potentially damaged registry entries by scanning for entries that point to various files that are no longer active on the PC. The necessity and usefulness of registry cleaners is a controversial topic, with experts in disagreement over their benefits.

Overview

The most common release is 6.1.1.0, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named registrybooster.exe. It also includes a system tray icon that is displayed in the notifications area while the program is running. The setup package generally installs about 31 files and is usually about 16.97 MB (17,795,640 bytes).
