Hi
could anyone recommend a registry fix tool please?
I've been wondering for a while if I should get one but I don't know which one
Are any of the free ones any good? So many claim to be free but are really only free trials
I can't tell if any of the pay ones are any different - also we have 3 machines so it could get expensive
I downloaded a trial of registry booster to see if there were any issues on the laptop and it came back with a long list or errors and issues that need fixing

The laptop runs windows 7 home edition 64 bit but the 2 PC's are nearly the same and I've listed below
I'd be really grateful for some advice
Many thanks

Avoid registry cleaner/booster/optimizer/tuneup type programs like the plague, no matter what they claim they can do.

They do little-to-nothing to improve speed and performance.

What they can do is break programs and damage the operating system.

The trial or demo ones will bring up a long list of "errors" to frighten you and convince you to buy it.
