We carried out a bulk of the review on Computer 1 and mainly used Computers 2, 3 & 4 for testing the performance before and after using Registry Booster. We also did not have detailed specifications for computers 3 or 4, so this information was obtained from the system properties of those computers.

Installing Registry Booster 2010

The single download of Registry Booster 2010 can be used for both the trial version and for activation. This means that once the product is installed, it is just a matter of entering the license code to activate the full version. Uniblue provides a direct download link on their product page, so downloading the product is very straight forward. Once downloaded, it is simply a matter of launching it and following the setup screens.

The setup process is very straight forward and is as simple as selecting the language, accepting the license agreement and clicking ‘Next’ a few times, followed by clicking ‘Finish’.

The setup screens are as follows, in sequence:

  • Choose language.
  • Welcome screen, as shown above.
  • License Agreement.
  • Select a folder to install in.
  • Select a start menu folder for the shortcuts.
  • Choice of installing desktop and quick-launch icons.
  • Review settings and begin installation.
  • Finish screen with option to launch Registry Booster.

Unlike many commercial and freeware products we have encountered, this software did not try installing any third party software, toolbars or other unnecessary icons, let alone came bundled with any, which was nice to see. For example, anyone who tries installing Winamp or Real player is well aware of all the third party stuff, browser add-ons and desktop advertisements those applications install by default.

After installation, we let it launch, which briefly shows the following screen:

Once its interface appears, it begins its scan automatically, at least for the first time it is launched:

Activating the product is simply a matter of clicking “Register now” and entering the activation code, assuming the user has already purchased it:

Now the product is fully functional and ready to use:
