According to official website, registrygear.com, Registry Gear is a paid computer optimizer/registry cleaner; a trial version of this software is available on that site for users to evaluate its functions. I tested this program and I would like to share my opinion and research.

I just got a impression that Registry Gear attempted to mislead me as soon as I installed and ran it.

Although it is installed on my system, it never scanned my system for problems yet it shows me my system health status is low. What does this program mean by "LOW"? Low health? This is not true, my system is in a very good state, because it is just installed, it is clean of any junk/grabage/empty reg keys etc. This is very bad practice when developers manage their software to show you false, misleading, untrue messages. Would you like to pay money a developer that does not hesitate to tell lies in the first place? Personally I would not!

Next I clicked the "Scan" button, after about a minute Registry Gear has finished scanning and found 449 problems in my system.

Judging by how mislaeding Registry Gear was once I first time started it, I would not be surprised if some of these (if not all) found problems are also fake.

After I clicked "Start repair" button, it said that trial version will remove problems only in some three areas: "Windows fonts", "User software settings" and "Virtual devices and settings" - somewhere in those areas where Registry Gear has found only 1 problem, so it won't allow me to remove more than one problem! Rest problems are remaining in system.

Next, just because of curiousity, I rescanned and clicked "Start repair" button again - it no longer allows me to remove anything.

This is not trial, this is just another free-scan snake oil adware that will not give any chance to evaluate all its functionality for free during evaluation period - usually 14-30 days, as true trial software does.

Know what you pay for before you decide to pay your money, don't buy adware and misleading unnecessary apps.

It's a rogue ;) (as are most registry/system cleaners)
