Perfect Registry Optimizer is a Windows optimization program that claims to be effective in cleaning invalid registry entries that are accumulated on the computer, which results to slow system performance. With Perfect Registry Optimizer, these issues can be fixed and user may experience faster and enhance performance of the system.
Upon testing, we noticed that Perfect Registry Optimizer belongs to family of rogue software that created unpopular optimization tools like Power Speedup 2018, Speedy System Care, and many more. This type of program is using scan-and-detect scheme to lure users into purchasing the activated version of Perfect Registry Optimizer. From time to time, it will display warnings and alerts reminding users to fix the issues by acquiring the paid version of the product.
Typical source of rogue program such as this are software bundles. Downloading free games, utilities, file manager, download manager, and suspicious application may lead to Perfect Registry Optimizer infection. Once fully installed, this rogue program will execute a scan on on its own. Then, it quickly identifies errors in various areas of the system. Its focus is to look for corrupt or invalid registry entries, which it will exploit to persuade user and sell Perfect Registry Optimizer.
As of today, there is still no proof that cleaning the Windows registry can actually enhances system performance. In fact, Microsoft states that using registry tools can be dangerous. Here is an excerpt from Microsoft support policy for the use of registry cleaning utilities.
Some products such as registry cleaning utilities suggest that the registry needs regular maintenance or cleaning. However, serious issues can occur when you modify the registry incorrectly using these types of utilities.
While Perfect Registry Optimizer is endorsed as a program that can fix certain issues, which we do not see as serious concern, we do not recommend utilizing the tool. If there is a need to remove the program and normal uninstall process is difficult, we have systematic guide on this page.
