Smart Registry Care

What is Smart Registry Care?

Smart Registry Care is yet another suspicious tool that promises to boost your computer’s performance, but in reality, does not provide any noticeable changes. According to our specialists at, the application mostly cleans invalid entries in the Windows Registry. Such entries might be left from already uninstalled software, and we doubt your computer could be running slow because of such leftovers. In fact, the program itself leaves some leftovers if the user uninstalls it through Control Panel. This is why the deletion instructions placed below this article will show you how to erase it manually instead. Of course, before you scroll below, we would advise you to read our full report to find out other reasons why Smart Registry Care was classified as a potentially unwanted program (PUP).testtesttest

Where does Smart Registry Care come from?

Smart Registry Care has an official website that provides a download link, but it is also quite possible the application could be distributed through bundled software installers. If the PUP was not your first choice and you installed it through a bundled setup file without even noticing it, we advise you to check the system and see if there are no other unreliable programs alike since the tool could have been bundled with adware, browser hijackers, and so on. To avoid installing such doubtful applications in the future, you should choose custom or advanced installation settings and carefully review all terms provided on the configuration wizard.

How does Smart Registry Care work?

The application installs itself by creating a couple of folders in %PROGRAMFILES% or %PROGRAMFILES(x86)% directories and adding quite a lot of different Registry entries. Most of this data should be left on the computer if you uninstall it with the help of Control Panel. Usually, programs create Desktop or Start menu icons, but the PUP does not place any icons at all. Apparently, it launches itself automatically every time the user turns on the computer, although this feature can be deselected.

Moreover, the installed application offers a seven-day free trial. As for paid version, it currently costs $99 per year. It seems to us the price for such a product is too large, especially when its benefits are highly doubtful and it does not perform a lot of features. No doubt you could purchase a reputable antimalware tool for less, and it would not only help you clean the system, but also protect it from various threats. In any case, purchasing Smart Registry Care is not even possible right now because if you click the Purchase Now button on, the site reloads instead of redirecting the user to the payment system. This is another reason the software raises a suspicion.

The PUP’s website claims Smart Registry Care can “Fix your slow PC, eliminate registry errors and improve your PC performance.” The software may allow fixing some errors, but as we said earlier, it mostly detects and deletes leftover data from programs that might have been uninstalled some time ago. Thus, we doubt it would actually make the computer work faster. If you do not see any changes on your system either, we advise you not to waste any time with this unreliable tool and get rid of it at once.
