Overview
AVS Registry Cleaner is a special utility that lets the user scan, clean and fix the Windows registry, remove obsolete, harmful
or unused items from the registry and make the personal computer operate safe and fast.
Using AVS Registry Cleaner
you can quickly and easily perform the following tasks:
Scan different registry categories like uninstalled entries, shared DLL's, COM/ActiveX, file extensions, etc.
Remove incorrect data that slow down your computer.
Detect and delete temporary Internet files, corrupted applications, trash files in the recycle bin, etc.
Make a backup of the files for maximum safety, restore them later if needed.
Automatically scan your computer using the scheduler option and select file categories for scanning.
To start AVS Registry Cleaner go to Start menu and choose All Programs -> AVS4YOU -> System Utilities -> AVS
Registry Cleaner.
Introduction to the Registry
The registry is a system-defined database in which applications and system components store and retrieve configuration data,
information and settings for all the hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, users,
preferences of the personal computer, etc. The data stored in the registry varies according to the version of Windows used.
Note: in the latest Windows versions - Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 - the registry does
not physically exist as a single file, it is a virtual entity composed of different files in the system, some of
which are created during the system boot and exist only during the Windows user session and are deleted
once the computer is shut down.
If there is an error in the registry, your system may not function properly. AVS Registry Cleaner helps you scan your registry
for some possible problems and try and fix them to improve the overall computer performance.
Note: most of the registry changes in Windows versions require a user to have Administrator
permissions to perform them; in Windows Vista and Windows 7 you will additionally need to run the
program as administrator to get the full access to all the program features.
Note: it is not recommended to edit the registry data unless it is absolutely necessary, that is your
computer experiences slow performance issues, some programs behave inadequately and so on. Please
make sure you create a backup each time you scan and fix some registry problems.
The registry contains the following root hives:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT (HKCR) - stores information about the system registered applications, such as file extensions
tying them to the applications used to handle these extensions. In fact this hive combines data from the HKLM
\Software\Classes and HKEY_USERS\Current_User's_SID_Classes registry sections.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER (HKCU) - stores settings that are specific to the currently logged-in user.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (HKLM) - stores settings that are general to all users on the computer - information about
system hardware drivers, services, software and Windows settings.

AVS4YOU Programs Help - AVS Registry Cleaner
HKEY_USERS (HKU) - contains subkeys corresponding to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER keys for each user profile actively
loaded on the machine, though user hives are usually only loaded for currently logged-in users.
HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG - contains information gathered at runtime; information stored in this key is not permanently
stored on disk, but rather regenerated at the boot time.
Below is the list of registry sections, which are scanned by AVS Registry Cleaner:
COM/ActiveX - registry section in which the COM-servers used by various applications are registered (in-process servers
(.dll files) or out-of-process servers (.exe files)). The program scans for the .dll or .exe links in the registry that point to
the nonexistent files on the computer hard disk drive. A COM-server can also link to a type library (usually a .tlb-file) that
does not exist. In case the DefaultIcon registry subkey is present in the category, the program will also scan for the
presence or absence of the file containing the file icons. The registry hives scanned by AVS Registry Cleaner are:

AVS4YOU Programs Help - AVS Registry Cleaner
Using the Scheduling
If you want to automate the work of AVS Registry Cleaner and let it perform cleaning on chosen categories
once, say, a week and at a certain time, you should use the Schedule feature.
To use the Schedule feature, click the Schedule button on the Menu Pane and check the Enable
Scheduling option in the window that appears:
Scan categories - use this option to check the categories that should be included into the clean on schedule.
Recur every - use this option to set how often the clean on schedule should be performed.
Start time - use this option to set an exact time (hours:minutes:seconds) when the clean on schedule should start.
To open the folder containing reports (files with the .mht extension ) made on the results of the scheduled cleans, click the
Show Reports button.
Note: if the folder is empty, the Show Reports button is disabled.
To apply changes, click the OK. To discard changes, click Cancel.
If the scheduled time has come and AVS Regisry Cleaner is launched, the window appears asking you to confirm the cleanup:
Note: if the scheduled time has come but AVS Registry Cleaner is unloaded, you will see the "Clean on
Schedule" notification in the system tray and cleanup will start automatically.

The Registry tab
Registry category settings - use this option to choose which registry sections will be included into the scanning.
Ignore list - use this option to define which registry keys will be excluded from scanning. It is useful when you consider that a
found problem does not have an effect on your system that much and want to decrease the general scan time. To delete a key
or all the keys from the Ignore List use the right-click menu.
Note: to add the registry keys to the ignore list, scan the registry for problems first then click the
details link to see the found problems and use the right-click menu Add to Ignore List item for a
selected key.
