On the positive side, Free Registry Fix’s interface is aesthetically pleasing, well arranged, and easy to use. Most of the window’s real estate is reserved for a pane that shows the sections of the Registry the application is scanning. Free Registry Fix searches for such entries as invalid application paths, broken shortcuts, and problematic ActiveX controls. You’ll also find a couple of handy features, such as scheduling and backup utilities. In spite of its enticing name, however, the program isn’t free and will remove only 50 entries before registration. Once it removes those 50 entries, it pops up a registration window we could close only by clicking on the Upgrade Now button. Also, in our latest round of tests, the program generated an error message, although it still seemed to work just fine. The trial restriction alone puts Free Registry Fix far down our list of favorite tools.
