Advanced Registry Doctor Pro description

Advanced Registry Doctor Pro is a software that can scan for, diagnose and cure multiple registry problems, which averts possible malfunctions and crashes, and significantly improves the speed of computer loading and performance. In addition, the program comes with a set of advanced options, like registry defragmenting, built-in scheduler, backup and restore feature, history log and many other perks - a registry toolkit, for example.

This version of software looks through the following data for possible “registry spoilers”: application paths, uninstall information, COM/ActiveX objects, help files, file extensions, font files, most recently used files list, shared DLLs and folders, startup applications, Windows/MS-DOS Shortcuts. The automatic cure options means that any person, regardless of his or her PC literacy level can solve registry problems by simply pressing a button. Advanced users can opt to make registry changes manually.

ARD can bring some of the dead links back to life. For example, that is if you’ve accidentally moved your files (font files, help files, shared folders, shared DLLs, etc) to some other place. The main point of using ARD is that it will do the entire job for you; you just have to select which problems to search (categories) and HDD list, which will be used by the program for finding solutions. Usually you'll have to use ARD when new program is installed/removed.

Advanced Registry Doctor (ARD) will cure your registry and thus provide a better performance of your Windows OS. Lots of programs, including MS Windows itself, have a bad habit to alter the registry in such a way, which causes appearance of different problems. Today you may install some new software on your PC and the next day it may happen that you?ll get annoying error message while your Windows loads. You ignore the problem, but eventually it puts its stamp on the whole OS. Some errors are noticeable while some other aren?t. Some are innocent, but still it is possible you will find few, which will make you suffer.

Some programs write incorrect uninstall information to registry which in its turn can make correct software removal impossible. Incorrect references to font/help/dll and other important files frequently influence on the way that programs work giving you even more unpleasant problems to face. ARD finds problems of such kind and allows you to fix them either manually or automatically. Automatic repair of problems is very handy to use since it can be applied to set of problems and categories (category is a set of problems of a single kind). ARD can even find and repair invalid shortcuts, which reference to invalid file or hold invalid link to an icon.

      • This tool cleans, repairs or removes errors in the registry automatically
    •  Shows Scan Progress

  2. Backup / Restore
    • Backup Registry
       Individual Undo
      • This allows you to undo a single deleted action
    •  Built-in scheduler
    • Compress or Defrags Registry
      •  Windows registry is its core, constantly modifying and growing in size. It's being altered each time you install/remove programs or config system settings. Such changes made to Windows registry cause it to grow in size, no matter whether new information is added or deleted from registry. Thus registry quickly loses its linear structure which results in increase of application response time and registry access time.
      • "Registry defragmentation" performs physical defragmentation of the Windows registry file. After defragmentation your registry will acquire linear structure which will reduce application response time and registry access time. "Registry defragmentation" also removes unused entries, thus making registry even smaller in size. Do not worry if sometimes after defragmentation the registry will become smaller only by 1-5%, the key is not in size but in its linear structure, hence it determines access time.
      • Usually you'll have to use "Registry defragmentation" when new program is installed/removed. You should perform defragmentations regularly, because registry's linear structure is quickly lost and as the time runs on it only becomes more non-linear. With this aim program package includes special sceduler which can help you to organize such regular optimizations.
    • Exporting / Importing  
      • This is a means of taking information out of the registry and saving it as a html file.
  3. Program Cleaning
    • Clean Windows add/remove Software List
      • ARD also scans all shortcut files (*.lnk, *.pif) checking their validity. If it turns out to be that the shortcut references invalid file or it has invalid icon then ARD tries to find the original object/icon in order to repair the shortcut. 
    • Manage/Cleanup Startup Programs
    • Checks Obsolete Start Menu Items
    • Scans For Invalid Program Shortcuts
    • Uninstall Information
      • Uninstall information is required to provide correct removal of software from your PC. ARD checks the validity of references in this section, so that all of them point to existing paths. ARD ensures that all entries from this section point to valid paths, otherwise if no alternative could be found the reference is removed.
    • Most Recently Used Files  
      • This section contains references to files/folders which were recently used by the user. ARD checks those references for validity and if it finds some invalid link it will delete it from the list.
  4. Registry Cleaning
    • Checks Invalid Class Keys
       Checks Shell Extension
      • This section of the registry contains information about all file extensions registered in the system. ARD verifies that registry keys in this section reference applications which correspond to existing file paths.
    • Checks Obsolete Start Menu Items
      • Startup sections of the registry contain information about applications and services which are launched each time the system is started. ARD check the validity of the referenced programs to make sure all those paths exist.
    • Checks Invalid Help Files
      • Some applications store information about location of their help files in this registry section. ARD verifies that all of those paths actually exist. If ARD can't find the referenced file it searches all specified local drives for its name.
    •  Checks Invalid CLSID/ Typelib/Interface Entries
    • Checks Invalid Shared/known DLLs
      • The section contains references to shared DLLs (Dynamic Link Libraries). DLLs hold functions which can be called by different applications, thus if it was removed then the link becomes invalid and there's no further need in its existence. ARD takes care of such references verifying that all DLLs referenced by the keys of this section exist, otherwise it clears the reference. 
    • Checks Com / Activex 
      • Entries in this section contain information about different COM and ActiveX objects registered in the system. ARD checks that all of the registry keys point to existing files. If ARD can't find the file referenced by some registry key then the key is considered to be invalid. 
    • Checks Invalid Paths
    • Checks Application Path keys /Orphan References
      • When new program is installed most likely information about its location will be added to this section of the registry. If the application's path is changed or if it is removed at all this entry becomes invalid. ARD checks the validity of such references by verifying that all paths exist. Otherwise the entry is considered to be invalid and is going to be removed unless ARD could find some alternative paths. 
    • Checks Invalid fonts
      • Fonts section holds file paths of all registered fonts. ARD checks that all entries reference valid files on local drives. If it can't find some file then the reference is considered to be invalid and is removed.
         Checks Invalid File Types / Extensions/ Entries
    •  Checks Shared Folders
      • This section contains references to shared folders on your computer. Those keys hold settings for the folders on your network. If some shared folder is deleted or removed then the reference becomes invalid, since it doesn't point to the real location of a folder any more. ARD recovers such broken references if it manages to find the folder with the same name on some of your local drives.
