  • 3) A command for removing the selected entry has been added to the startup items list.
  • Disk Cleanup: If you want to specify the custom file masks to be removed during the disk cleanup (via Main Menu -> Commands -> Settings... -> Disk Cleanup -> Custom Files), now it is not necesary to add every mask separately. Just add them in one line, for example: "*.tmp *.temp".
  • Bugs fixed:
  • 1) If you try to reboot the computer without closing Reg Organizer, a message was shown that latter does not allow to end the session.

  • 2) Uninstalling applications is faster due to the fact that the system restore point is not created now before the application's traces removal. (The quickly-working Undoing Changes Center is now used instead to provide the ability to rollback the traces removal.)
  • 3) High CPU resources consumption eliminated during the work of the standard uninstaller when removing an application.
  • The Tweaks tool: A tweak was added: "Do not show the Windows lock screen upon system load".
  • The Registry Optimization tool: a problem was fixed after the optimization when the Hidden attribute was taken off from the files where the registry is stored. This led to the fact that the files of the registry become visible in Explorer with the standard settings.
  • Rarely used options have been removed from the program settings.

  • Application Uninstaller: High CPU resources consumption eliminated during the work of the standard uninstaller when removing an application.



Veranderingen voor v6.50 Beta 3 - v6.50

  • A new Startup Applications tool has been added. It accumulates the functionality that was previously in one of the Important Registry Parts sections and also includes the following improvements:
  • 1) Now every one of the most applications automatically started after system load can be delayed by specifying an any period of time after which it will be launched. The delaying of the applications which are not necessary immediately after the system load allows you to accelerate its being brought to a working state; that is, when there is no more latency in the system's user interface.
  • 2) Building the startup applications loading order by using the delaying function.
  • 3) Displaying the system load speed graph.
  • 4) More startup applications now displayed.
  • 5) Protecting the status of the delayed, disabled, and removed startup entries and restoring it in the event the status was changed by the parent program.
  • 6) Easily changing several entries at once, if necessary.
  • 7) A context menu command allowing you to move to the startup entry in the system (for example, open the registry key containing the startup entry).
  • 8) Extracting the startup application’s information from the digital signature, if available for an application.
  • The Tweaks tool:
  • 1) The System Load and Unload Speed-Up quick tune-up group has been supplemented by a new tweak. Enabling it boosts the system load by reducing the startup applications priority on a number of occasions.
  • 2) A tweak was added: "Disable the shutdown button on the Start Screen (Windows 8.1 Update 1 or higher)".
  • If the installer execution tracking agent is enabled, it gets loaded with a 1 minute delay after logging in to the system. (Previously this used to occur immediately after logging in.) This was done to boost the system's moving into the fully working condition by reducing the number of processes executed simultaneously just after the system has loaded.
  • In the Important Registry Parts tool, the most frequently used parts are now located in the beginning of the list.
  • Bug fixed: When changing the size of the Tweaks window, the entry lists within it weren’t resized.

Veranderingen voor v6.0 - v6.01

  • Bugs fixed.



Veranderingen voor v5.46 - v6.0



Veranderingen voor v6.0 Beta 1 - v6.0 Beta 2

  • Disk Cleanup tool:
  • By default, the program deletes shortcuts pointing to files that do not exist. However, you can enable the repair of such files instead of deletion (that’s the way these files were handled in the previous versions).
  • When a file is deleted, the program creates a record in the Undoing Changes Center.
  • Registry Editor, enhanced usability:
  • Toolbar is nestled than before: The Registry File button has been removed because it’s rarely used, and its commands can now be found on context menus.
  • You can switch between the main window controls by pressing the Tab key on the keyboard, without using the mouse.
  • Registry settings are sorted alphabetically as in the standard registry editor (regedit.exe).
  • The behaviour of the registry editor key entering field has been improved when manually typing the key.
  • The adding to the Favorites window has been updated.
  • A new tweak has been added: "Hide Recycle Bin from Desktop".
  • Fixed bugs:
  • Tweaks: The "System Load and Unload Speed-Up" option used to disable itself on some systems after being enabled.
  • The Install an Application command did not work when using the Installer Execution Tracking Agent. This command is called from the context menu of the Agent in the system tray.
  • The program could hang if the user added too many items to the ignore list of the Registry Cleanup or Disk Cleaner.
  • Visual bug: A small blue box used to appear in the lower right corner of the main window (on the status bar).
  • Fixed bug: The program has an option for moving the unwanted files to a specified folder. We discovered that the program did not exclude that folder from scanning when the option was enabled. As a result, the program used to scan that folder and find previously processed files again.



Veranderingen voor v5.46 - v6.0 Beta 1

  • * Tweaks - the tool which is intended for changing the hidden and hard-to-get-to options of the operating system - has been revamped. Here are some changes:
  • 1) Quick tune-up groups have been added. With their help, it is possible to optimize the specific aspects of the operating system functioning with a few mouse clicks. For example, when working with the Internet or system, load and unload time can be optimized.
  • 2) The number of tweaks available in the program for manual changing by the user was increased.
  • 3) For more experienced users, an option was added to create their own tweaks and share them with other users. Also the created tweaks can be exported so that Reg Organizer won’t be needed to open them. Any registry editing tool will do, for example, the standard regedit.exe from the operating system.
  • 4) Safer working with the tweaks: any changing can be easily undone. A button for opening the Undoing Changes Center has been added to the right lower corner of the Tweaks tool window.
  • 5) Windows 8 support (the rest of the tools of Reg Organizer supported it before as well).
  • * The Registry Editor tool:
  • 1) The ability to start the registry editor quickly, directly from Windows, even if Reg Organizer is not open. To do this, you just enter the alias “rrr” in the Run window (it appears when pressing the Win + R keys combination in Windows), in the search field of the Start Menu, or the Start screen of Windows 8. This will result in opening the registry editor of Reg Organizer. The confirmation window of the User Account Control (UAC) feature of Windows won’t be displayed.
  • 2) When creating a registry value, the focus by default will be set to its name. When editing, it will be set to the value's data.
  • 3) In the input field of the search string, a hint will be displayed with information about where the search will be performed (in the entire Registry or separate key), in accordance with the current settings.
  • * The Undoing Changes Center is an updated feature allowing you to rollback changes made to the system registry using Reg Organizer.
  • 1) The changes made to the system registry while using the registry tool of Reg Organizer can be cancelled. For example, if you’ve accidentally deleted an important key during the registry editing, it can be easily restored.
  • 2) For each backup, you can see what registry items are affected by it.
  • 3) Automatic deletion of obsolete backups.
  • 4) The ability to rename backups. With this function, it is possible to specify any keywords in the backup's name allowing you to easily distinguish one backup from another.
  • * The Express Check function now works faster.
  • * Usability improvement: The Important Registry Parts tool's sections are now sorted so that the most popular ones are shown first.

  • 2) Dynamic resizing of the elements in the program's windows. In the earlier versions, the size of the elements changed only after a user released the mouse button. Now elements change their size dynamically as if moving the mouse cursor with the button pressed.
  • Application Uninstaller tool:
  • 1) Application traces searching algorithm has been improved. Now when uninstalling an application via Reg Organizer, it detects more data left by the uninstalled application in the system.
  • 2) An ability to install updates to the applications installed with tracing.
  • 3) Now you can install applications with tracing directly from the Windows Explorer's context menu.
  • 4) The support for simultaneous removal of two or more applications has been added. The list of applications in the Application Uninstaller tool window now supports multiple selection.
  • 5) While an application is being uninstalled with its built-in uninstall tool, an ability to start searching for the application's traces without waiting for the uninstall process to finish has been added. This works best when the default uninstaller of a program works incorrectly or halts.
  • Bugs fixed:
  • 1) Fixed the error "Failed to get data for" in the Registry Cleanup tool while checking the "Shell Commands" registry part.
  • 2) Registry editor: Column sorting didn't work for the tabs of reg-files.

  • In the Application Uninstaller tool you can install a new application in silent mode without prompting during the installation. This will save time if you are reinstalling an application you know well.
  • A new tool: Registry snapshots. The tool creates and compares different states of the registry saved at different times. In previous versions, this functionality was a part of the Application Uninstaller tool.
  • An option to enable a special agent program that monitors and fixes the moment when an application was run and suggests tracking all changes made to the system since that time. This guarantees correct and complete uninstalling of an application, if such need arises.
  • Information about the current state of the operation has been added to the top of disk and registry cleanup windows.
  • Registry Editor: The “Add to Favorites” button has been removed from the main window. Instead, this command has been transferred to the Favorites menu to provide a better user experience as all related commands are now in the same place.
