PC Tools has just released Registry Mechanic 7.0 which incorporates several improvements and enhancements:
An improved Graphical User Interface (GUI) -> Registry Mechanic's GUI is now more intuitive and consistent with other PC Tools products. On the Main Status screen, the main Action buttons progress you through scanning and repairing your Windows Registry, followed by tweaking and compacting the registry to optimize system performance. Buttons on the left allow you to display the Main Status screen, conduct a scan and repair, restore repair changes back to their original condition, and access Registry Mechanic's various Options.
The ability to compact the Windows Registry for optimized system performance -> Registry Mechanic now incorporates a registry compacting feature, which analyzes, rebuilds and compacts the Windows Registry by removing registry gaps and free space, and corrupt keys.
A new 'Optimize Your System' feature -> Registry Mechanic now implements a new system optimization function which, at the click of a button, applies a set of tweaks and patches directly into the Windows Registry that are designed to improve system performance.
Restore individual registry entries within a Windows Registry backup -> Registry Mechanic's automatic Windows Registry backups are now expandable, such that individual registry entries can be selectively restored to their former state.
An improved Live Update feature -> Live Update has been expanded to allow a greater range of Registry Mechanic's functionality and features to be updated through this tool.
Improved scanning algorithms -> Scanning detection enhancements and other improvements have been incorporated into Registry Mechanic's scanning algorithms, resulting in enhanced problem detection and repair.
