Frontline Reg Cleaner: Overview & Features
Frontline Registry Cleaner is a recently launched registry tool, developed by a computer programming company called Frontline Utilities. This cleaner was released in early 2010 and has already been downloaded 1,000's of times in the relatively short time is has been available.
It has many typical registry cleaner features, such as the ability to clean out a variety of registry errors... but Frontline Registry Cleaner is set apart with a selection of several unique features which are highly powerful and effective. Here is a basic overview of the features this tool has:
Scans 11 Registry Errors
Junk File Cleaner
Complete Backup Facility
Windows 7 Compatible
First impressions show us that this registry cleaner tool has the potential to be extremely powerful. However, what exactly does it have? And what can it do for your PC?...
Home Screen & Scanning Facility
Frontline Registry Cleaner is an easy-to-use, powerful and feature-rich registry cleaner which is receiving a lot of praise from those who use it. You can see the initial opening screen below:
Loading up the program is very easy. You just need to click on the program shortcut, and then tick the various check-boxes that you want the cleaner to scan. This will send Frontline Reg Cleaner scanning for these particular errors on your system and will show you them on the next screen.
To make the program scan your system, you just need to tick the various boxes that you want to scan (it scans junk files as well so you need to be sure which files you want it to scan) and then click on "Start Scan". This will take you onto Step 2 of 3, where you will see Frontline Registry Cleaner scanning through the various parts of your computer.
Upon completion of your initial scan, you are then presented with the 3rd step of the cleaning process, where you select which problems you want to fix:
Once you have completed the registry scan with the Frontline Registry Cleaner, you can then look through all the different errors and select or ignore the ones that you want. This means that if you have a number of errors which you know are okay, then you can make the program ignore them all for you.
Once you have chosen which errors you want to fix, and which you want to ignore, you can then click on the green "Fix Errors" button to tell Frontline Registry Cleaner to fix all the errors that it has found. After it has done this, it will show you the results of such a clean, which will be displayed on this screen:
The results will show you how many errors have been found, which ones were fixed and which ones were ignored. A good feature is that it also shows you the number of errors which have been cleaned to date, which is a great way to gauge exactly how beneficial the program has been since you've been using it.
Another good feature which deserves a mention is the backup facility that Frontline Registry Cleaner has. This is an essential part of the cleaner, as many poor quality tools have the potential to ruin your PC if you're not careful... as they do not store any backups. As you can see with the screenshot below, the Frontline Registry Cleaner backup facility is very comprehensive and effective:
The real tell-tale signs of a good registry cleaner is the tool's ability to keep a comprehensive set of backups. All of the 'horror stories' that come from registry cleaners are almost always from people who have tried to use a registry cleaner but did not have any backup facility protecting them. Frontline Registry Cleaner has a complete backup facility which automatically creates a snapshot of the registry before any cleaning / optimizing takes place.
The presence of a backup facility makes Frontline Registry Cleaner a very dependable tool, and it also has several other features which make it a very useful tool. Such features include a "Startup Programs Manager" which allows you to control the number of programs that load up at boot. This can make your computer run a lot faster depending on how many programs it has loading when it's powered-on.
The startup manager is a very useful feature of the Frontline Registry Cleaner, but it's not unique. In fact, most registry tools we reviewed have this feature. What makes Frontline Registry Cleaner different is the way in which it has several other unique features & mechanisms which can really add that extra sparkle to your system. One such feature is the "Registry Defragmenter" which you can see here:
The registry defragmenter basically takes the registry database for your computer and puts it all into the right order again. This is an automated tool which can boost the speed of your PC dramatically, as many computers have extremely fragmented registries.
Junk File Cleaner
Another useful feature of Frontline Registry Cleaner is the way in which it can scan for "junk" files on your system. Along with scanning the 'registry', the cleaner can also look through your deleted files and your temporary Internet files (the ones that are generated when you browse websites) and remove those forever as well. This can boost the speed & reliability of your PC dramatically as junk files cause many systems to run sluggish and slow:
To help you clean out your registry at timed intervals, the Frontline Registry Cleaner software also includes an automated scanning facility which will bring the scanner into action at any time you specify.
It's important to keep your cleaner constantly running at regular times to help your system maintain its high speed and efficiency... and the best way to do this is by scheduling a time for the cleaner to start by using this feature.
Overall Opinion Of The Frontline Registry Cleaner
The overall opinion of the Frontline Registry Cleaner has been that this tool is very easy to use and comprises of a lot unique features which set it out from the competition. It has a pleasing interface and is backed by what appears to be a large development company, giving us the indicators that it seems to be a steadfast and reliable cleaner.

- Uninstall Entries

By cleaning through these typical Windows errors, the Frontline Registry Cleaner will allow Windows to run faster and smoother as it is able to open the files & settings that it needs, whenever it needs them. The most important thing to note down is the variety of errors that this cleaner can fix - more fixable errors means more chance of being able to improve the performance of your system.
The problem with this cleaner is that unless we try it out, we'll never know what it can do. It's very well saying that it could do that, but unless it can deliver, it's no use. So how does Frontline Registry Cleaner stack up in fixing your PC?
What It Actually Does
Frontline Registry Cleaner seems to live up to the heightened expectations that it has with its new brand and impressive feature set very well.
Using Frontline Registry Cleaner is simple, effective and easy; allowing even the biggest beginner to effectively clean out the errors and junk files that are making your computer run slower and with errors. However, one word of caution is that you need to be careful about which "junk" files it's removing.
One small draw-back of the Frontline Registry Cleaner program is that it does not backup the "junk" files it removes. This should be okay, but if it removes important files that your programs or Internet browsers need to run, then it could be a major problem for your PC.
We've used this cleaner to already remove 100's of gigabytes of junk files from our test computers and every time it's delivered the goods without causing any problems. You just need to be careful if the cleaner finds 10Gb+ of bad files... because there might be some vital ones in there.
Overall, the tool works very smoothly to remove a lot of the errors that can make your computer run slower and less effectively. The speed of the cleaner is O.K and the time it takes to clean the errors is good. We particularly like the "Pause" facility that the cleaner has, whereby you can make the scan stop whilst you let your PC catch up with the scan. It's often the case that slower computers will struggle to run these tools, and the pause facility really makes it easier for these systems.
Frontline Registry Cleaner is one of the best registry cleaners you can download today.
Unlike its many counterparts, the Frontline Registry Cleaner tool has been equipped with a large selection of unique & useful features, which make it able to find and remove more errors than most other cleaners.
