What is Registry Dr.?
Registry Dr. is a computer optimization tool that promises to fix all the registry errors present. However, despite its good intentions computer security experts claim that this program is a potentially unwanted application. It means that although Registry Dr. is not a malicious computer threat, it still should not be installed on your computer, because the benefits of having this program are highly questionable. If you installed this program on your computer accidentally, you should remove Registry Dr., because the program might have arrived bundled with additional and totally unnecessary freeware.

Where does Registry Dr. come from?
You may have downloaded Registry Dr. from its official website at registrydr.com. It seems that the home page is the main source for the program’s distribution. It is also obvious that Registry Dr. does not enter your computer surreptitiously, because the download and the installation are initiated only with your consent.
There is also an older duplicate website present at registry-dr.com, but the sample of that website is outdated. Also, the creator’s website can be accessed via atsh.co. However, with one look at the site one can see that the website has a poor design and it definitely does not look reliable. For contacts you are given a Hong Kong phone number, but the company does not offer any mailing address, which is slightly suspicious.
What does Registry Dr. do?
As it has been mentioned before, Registry Dr. is a program that has been created to fix registry errors by removing unnecessary temporary files. Once the program is installed on the PC, it is configured to run automatically with every system boot. It means that Registry Dr. will jump into action and run a full system scan whenever you turn on your computer.
Registry Dr. always detects a lot of computer errors, and if you ignore the scan at first, the application will not allow you to forget it, because it schedules a daily task that displays a pop-up notification on your tray bar, saying that you need to fix the errors present. However, in order to fix the errors, Registry Dr. requires you to pay $39 via PayPal for the full version of the program.
The question is whether Registry Dr. really can detect registry errors, because it is known to detect “errors” even on a clean computer. Also, the program obviously does not want to be removed from the PC, because it offers to fix 100 errors for free if you try uninstalling it.
How to remove Registry Dr.?
It is worth mentioning that even if you choose to remove 100 or less errors with the so-called final offer, should you run a full system scan again, Registry Dr. would detect a big number of errors again. Not to mention that computer security experts in general do not recommend using such unreliable optimization tools, because Windows Registry is not something to be meddled with.
Registry Dr. is not a computer infection, but it does not seem to do much good either, so remove the application from your computer and save some system space.
