A few pointers to consider...please!
1- Do not turn on the boot defrag option by default
Tell me if I'm wrong, but any defrag on a SSD drive is a big no-no.
So for people like me having their OS on a SSD MIGHT NOT want to see a defrag operation going on pre-boot after installing Glarys U...
2- Can't disable the auto-check for update on free version: OK fine but could you guys at least give users a hint on what the new version brings and what kind of bugs you fixed? Android apps devs do and I think it is just fair and smoe kind of respect gesture from a developer to his "subjects"
3- I know that resgistery cleaning is not something to be taken lightly; it can result in catastrophic consequences if not done properly. Well, that brings Glary's 1-click maintenance option to the table. Read on:
After I first used the "quick fix/clean registry" option on my brand new Win8 rig, I thought I was good to go with a cleaned up system (like I did so many time for so long on my now deceased XP machine) but no: issues started showing quickly: mainly with my McAfee security suite:
1- Couldn't "shred" (an included safe-erase from HD option) files with it without getting an error message;
2- All the installed programs thumbnails in the McAfee firewall settings screen were gone;
3- the worst: the main anti-virus protection system (the REal-Time scanning started acting up and be really slow to start at boot up: 30 seconds, than 2 minutes, then to the point that it would only stay on "starting up" --> so basically my anti-virus was toast.
So all this to say: thanks Glarys from having a restore option that fixed things up, but dang!, there might be some work required with the inter-compatibility McAffee-GlarysU in regards to the auto-registry cleaning.
Other than that, I will still keep using your soft because there are other neat features included. But Please show us some love and consider the ideas in this feedback above.
Even you can suggest "Ahsay software" also. I am actually using this software from long time and really satisfied using this software. For more info if you want i am leaving a link for "Ahsay software" http://www.ahsay.com/jsp/en/home/index.jsp?pageContentKey=ahsay_products_overview

I agree that designing a registry cleaner is a huge challenge to do right. I'd bet 95% of those used now will cause problems sooner or later. In addition to the registry cleaner's backup, I also do daily full image backups as they allow a restore to a known working state. Because the registry is always being changed by your programs and your OS, I believe there is no guarantee that the restoring the registry from the cleaner's backup at a later time will restore your PC exactly to the state that it was, and thus may not cure all ailments caused by the cleaning.
I'd be interested in having others with more experience and knowledge comment on this concern.
