Where does Tweakerbit Registry Optimizer come from?

Tweakerbit Registry Optimizer was created by a company called Tweaker Bit which also makes an antimalware program and an uninstaller program. This company’s website at Tweakerbit.com suggests that the company is based in Noida, India. Tweakerbit Registry Optimizer is also distributed on this same website, and you can get a trail version for free, but the full program costs 29.99 USD which is a substantial sum of money.

Our cybersecurity experts say that this registry optimizer might also be bundled with third-party software and featured on freeware hosting websites. The bundled installers can might install this application by default and not disclose its presence. However, this has yet to be confirmed, but we want to mention this because it is a very likely scenario.

What does Tweakerbit Registry Optimizer do?

Tweakerbit Registry Optimizer offers its users the ability to clean Windows registry by deleting empty keys left by uninstalled programs and keys that have been modified by other software or have errors in them. According to Tweakerbit.com “cleaning of registries leads to better stability and performance of the computer.” While there is a strong argument for cleaning your registry, do not expect this program to improve your computer’s performance significantly because most of what it can do is delete empty registry entries and fix some non-critical registry errors.

Our cyber security experts have classified this registry cleaner as a potentially unwanted program because it leaves leftover files when you uninstall it. Therefore, when you run its uninstaller from Control Panel, it may leave files in %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%\Tweakerbit Registry Optimizer or %PROGRAMFILES%\Tweakerbit Registry Optimizer as well as the following registry keys presented below.

  • HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Tracing\Tweakerbit_Registry_Optimizer_RASAPI32
  • HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Tracing\Tweakerbit_Registry_Optimizer_RASAPI32
  • HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Tracing\Tweakerbit_Registry_Optimizer_RASMANCS
  • HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Tracing\Tweakerbit_Registry_Optimizer_RASMANCS

It is rather ironic that a program that deletes empty registry keys also leaves its registry keys when uninstallers. Also, it can leave files that are normally not addressed by registry cleaners. As you can see, this program is rather strange, so if you had this program and uninstalled it, you should also get rid of its junk files.
