outerbank Posted July 30, 2014 Report Share Posted July 30, 2014 On another posting, a comment was made that some antivirus programs incorporate registry cleaners. A warning was made that continual use of a registry cleaner will mess up Roxio programs, and presumably other programs. It was recommended that if the antivirus program incorporated a registry cleaner, it should be turned off. Out of curiosity, I asked if anyone knew which brand(s) incorporated a registry cleaner? I believe it is an important question to ask so that viewers on this forum will know which brands to look for that have this feature. It was decided to search the web to look for a site that offered a comparison chart of features for the many antivirus programs offered, and one was found. Scrolling through at least 60 different antivirus programs, I could not find a single antivirus program that also incorporated a registry cleaner. The programs shown were some of the most well known brands and some of the lesser know brands. If there are such antivirus programs being offered, they must be some of the very lesser known brands and most likely not marketed extensively.
