The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 2.0
PC Registry Shield is an application which helps you fix registry errors. This program can be used to improve the performance of your computer.
The interface is attractive, providing a quite logical structure and an easy to understand menu.
I was impressed by the graphics interface which is adequate to the program’s purpose. One thing I noticed when looking for similar programs is that PC Registry Shield’s interface resembles very much that of a program entitled RegClean Pro. The color of the background is the only thing that makes them different from other similar applications.
Using the trial version, you may get rid of 15 identified errors, and not of 35 as it is stated in an explanatory statement formulated by the developer on his official website. You need to buy the full version for repairing more system failures. In addition, the access to ‘Registry Defrag’ option is unavailable when using the demo version.
Practically, this tool has three main functions: ‘Scan Registry’, ‘Defrag Registry’ and ‘Backup Registry’. Scanning the registry allows you to identify the errors. This is, as far as I’m concerned, an important issue because you become aware of the problems you are dealing with. Apart from the above mentioned major features, you are allowed to apply some additional settings. Thus, apart from being able to select the types of errors you are looking for, you can also exclude certain registry categories from the scanning process. More than that, you may schedule periodic examinations of system’s performance, according to your preferences.
I recommend this utility to those who want to keep their computer in good functioning condition. I personally consider that maintaining your system healthy is an important aspect, but there are also apps which perform the same functions as PC Registry Shield for free. You cannot tell from the trial version how effective this tool is compared to other programs created for the same purpose.
