RegHunter is a versatile system optimizer. This application can improve your computer’s stability and performance. Moreover, this tool has also an impact on your security and privacy. It has a nice interface, which is very similar to those of other applications of the same type, so it’s unlikely that you may have any problems to use it.

The developers of this tool claim that it can have a highly positive impact on performance. In this respect, the application supports cleaning and defragmenting the registry, which certainly contributes to speeding up the whole system. When tested, the tool was able to find several faulty entries; however, the trial version doesn’t allow fixing them all, which makes it difficult to measure its real functionality. Fortunately, it can create backup copies of your registry just in case something goes wrong. Another useful feature is its disk defragmenter, which can reduce the time needed to retrieve information from the hard disks. Likewise, the program lets you manage the list of startup programs to reduce booting time.

In order to help manage storage capacity wisely, the tool can find and erase junk files as well as obsolete Windows service packs. And not only that, it can also scan hard drives and find duplicate files. Unfortunately, it cannot create a report of how much of your disk space is being used by file types, which would certainly help a lot in making related decisions.

The application also does its job in terms of enhancing your security and protecting your privacy. Thus, it supports scanning and erasing traces of your activity, including Internet navigation. Besides, it has a built-in shredder to delete selected files and folders beyond recovery.

Finally, it’s a great thing that this tool can be scheduled to perform regular scans. Moreover, it can also help in monitoring PC activity and performance in real times. In this regard, it lets you view active processes and CPU usage. Likewise, it can monitor and let you know when an application tries to modify the starup settings, which is very effective in detecting virus activity.

In general, I’m pleased with what RegHunter has to offer. It comes with a comprehensive set of features that influence many aspects of system performance. Unfortunately, its trial version allows repairing only a limited number of the errors found, so it’s difficult to tell how effective the changes have been.
