A self proclaimed computer expert on the radio today was recommending a "Registry Repair" software that allegedly repairs your computer's registry and is supposed to speed things back up to normal.

She was recommending PCTOOLS.COM. Any thoughts on whether or not this is worth the trouble and if so are there any free versions out there that are just as good?

It's got to have a known good original to work from but it does work.

Use this one

www.ccleaner.com/

It cleans your registry as well as tons of unnecessary crap that programs leave behind

+1 I've been using Crap Cleaner for a long time now. A lot of registry cleaners can be downloaded as trial versions thus allowing you to scan for errors. Most likely, the trial software will tell you that you have anywhere from 500-2000 errors and will allow you to repair 30 of them using the trial version and you will need to pay to fix the rest.

If you don't have a quick way to restore your computer to the way it was before "fixing" your registry, I wouldn't try one of the free trial versions.

I haven't had any problems with CCleaner which is always free.
