Wise Registry Cleaner Free
Fix Registry problems with a single click, but be prepared for side-effects

The most dangerous thing about using a Registry cleaning tool is to believe the hype that comes with it: if you take what you read as fact, running the tool and letting it delete dozens – if not hundreds – of supposedly obsolete entries will help you speed up your PC. On a severely clogged up computer this myth might even be proved true after the first couple of scans, but then strange things start to happen, which can’t be traced to an obvious cause and which ultimately cause more frustration than persevering with a slow computer.

Registry cleaning tools should be treated with caution, and Wise Registry Cleaner Free at least does that, allowing you to create both a System Restore point and backup of your Registry before you start using the program. The program will then scan your system for problematic entries and provide you with a summary where it tells you how many of these can be “safely” removed, and which ones should be left alone. Click Fix and the program automatically backs up the keys about to be removed, so if problems do occur, you can then restore your backup quickly and easily. Despite these fail-safes, we still recommend going through each of the categories manually reviewing what’s been marked for deletion, and unticking anything you don’t immediately recognise.

After deleting these entries, you’ll notice a defrag button: click this and the Registry files will be compacted and defragmented when you next start your PC – if performance can be improved, it’s here that it’ll actually happen, and you don’t need to delete any Registry entries to do so.

Version 10.2.1 brings (Changelog):

Fixed an issue that the right-click menu did not work properly.

Verdict:

Competent Registry cleaning tool, with plenty of fail-safes should the program prove – like many other Registry cleaners – to be overzealous.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
