Do you know what Registry Helper is?
Registry Helper is a potentially unwanted program that is promoted as a registry cleaner. This program comes forth saying that it can help you fix various Registry errors thus improving your system’s performance. However, we believe that Registry Helper does not deliver, and there is no need to tolerate this application. This is especially applicable if you did not plan to have Registry Helper on-board. You should remove Registry Helper following the instructions below this description, and then check for other unwanted applications that might be running on your system. Please keep in mind that potentially security threats usually travel in packs.
It is very probable that Registry Helper was installed on your computer accidentally when you downloaded some application from a third-party source. Sometimes even security programs might be bundled with Registry Helper, especially if you locate the download links on file-sharing websites. Do not forget that you should NEVER download official programs from unfamiliar websites because in such a case their setup files could be bundled with additional applications like Registry Helper. As a result, (and if you do not follow all the installation wizard’s steps) you might set up a few unwanted applications on your computer that would eventually cause security issues.Registry Helper screenshot

Truth be told, software packages may not be the only distribution method for Registry Helper. This program has an official homepage that can be accessed via safeappsoftware.com/rh, and our tests show that the direct download option works. Nevertheless, it is very unlikely that users come across the main homepage and download Registry Helper willingly. Most of the complaints we receive say that the application appears out of nowhere and pops up on the user’s desktop the moment her computer loads. This happens because Registry Helper configures Windows Registry in the way that allows the application auto-start each time you turn on your PC.
Registry Helper would not be much of a problem if the application would actually do the job it promises to carry out. Unfortunately, the program cannot even run a full system scan properly. Registry Helper shows a lot of fake errors that are supposedly present on your computer, and then it says that you have to fix them by purchasing the full version of the program. We would like to warn you about this: Even if you pay for the license, there is no guarantee that Registry Helper will really fix the errors in your registry.
To put it simply, this application is in no way useful, and there is no reason why you should keep it on your system. Go to your Control Panel and uninstall Registry Helper right away. If you notice some other unfamiliar programs in the list of the applications, remove them as well.
Some users may not be able to tell apart reliable and potentially malicious applications. If you are one of them, please scan your PC with the SpyHunter free scanner. A full system scan will help you determine which programs have to be deleted immediately. Once you have terminated all the potential threats, do not forget to acquire a computer security application of your choice. Your system’s security should be your utmost priority.
