Do you know what RegGenie is?
RegGenie is not the application that you should install on the system because it is known to be a potentially unwanted program. Of course, users usually do not know that and expect that this application will fix all the PC’s issues and boost the speed of the computer. We cannot say that this program does not do anything; however, we are sure that it will not fix any issues for users unless they buy the license. If you have also noticed that the free version of this program is quite useless and you do not want to invest in it, you should remove RegGenie without further consideration. We will provide more information on the removal of this software further in the article, so continue reading it carefully.
RegGenie will immediately scan the system in order to find errors. It seems that it mainly checks how many empty registry keys, invalid class entries, and other errors there are on the system. If a user clicks on the Fix Errors Now button after the scan, he/she notices “Errors Fixed: 0”. In addition, it is said that users need to register the program in order to fix the remaining errors. It seems that this application does not fix any errors even though it should fix problems “in two areas” for free. The license of RegGenie for one PC costs $35, and it is up to you whether to pay money for it or not; however, in our opinion, there are hundreds of more trustworthy PC optimizers, and it is better to acquire one of them instead. In addition, nobody knows whether RegGenie shows really trustworthy scan results.
Specialists say that you should definitely not keep RegGenie installed if you do not want to hand in information about yourself to its creator. You should especially not keep it if you are not going to use it. Researchers have managed to find out that this software is primarily interested in the computer’s OS and types of web browsers, IP address, previously visited websites, clickstream data, and even the resolution of the computer monitor. If you do not wish to give this information to anyone, you will have to remove RegGenie from your system. Do not forget to take care of your system’s safety too in order not to encounter other potentially unwanted programs and much more serious threats. It is not very easy to protect the system from harm, so we do not expect that you will be able to do that yourself.RegGenie screenshot
