dotTech Exclusive: 15 free licenses of Auslogics Registry Defrag!

Auslogics is a popular name for their freeware Disk Defrag program. In addition to Disk Defrag, Auslogics also has a long offering of other software that can perform a variety of tasks for you with the same quality that we have come to know and love in Disk Defrag. Auslogics Registry Defrag is one such software.

Auslogics Registry Defrag, as the name implies, does to the registry what Disk Defrag does to your hard drive: defragmentation. Of course, to be completely fair, a Registry Defrag is not going have as big of an impact on your computer performance as Disk Defrag. Why? Because, lets be honest, a registry is not as large as a whole hard drive, so defragmentation is not as big of a deal. Nonetheless, though, if you use the right tool, defragging your registry can never hurt you.

These are all the benefits of Auslogics Registry Defrag as per the developer:

  • Eliminates structural defects in the Registry
  • Reduces the Registry size and the amount of RAM the registry takes up
  • Improves applications response time
  • Makes Windows running more stable
  • Improves overall computer performance

What is not mentioned in the list is something I can attest to with first hand experience: Auslogics Registry Defrag is, literally, point and click – extremely easy to use.

That all being said, 15 lucky dotTechies will have the chance to own a copy of Auslogics Registry Defrag for free! All winners will receive free updates. Here are the rules for this promotion:

Version being given out for free: 5.5.20.525

    01 – Have not usee any tool to defragment registry.

    02- Cannot answer as I have not tried it at all.

    03- Cannot suggest as I have not worked with the programme to gain experience and assess its
    ease of functionality.

    04- Price is not a question in case of useful programmes. I can pay a little more than what has been
    mentioned above, say 25 US dollars for the programme.

  2. Ashley Cox.

    Hi, Here are my answers:
    Have you ever defragged your registry in the past? If so, with what software?
    I used a free trial of auslogics registry defrag, that came with the fantastic boost speed suite, and a program called free registry defrag.

    What is your favorite aspect of Auslogics Registry Defrag?
    It’s speed, simple to use, and works very well with screen readers (i’m a blind user)

    Is there anything Auslogics can improve in Registry Defrag (bug fixes, more features, portability, etc.)? If so, please specify.
    An automatic monitor and defrag feature would be nice… or does it have that already?

    If you were in the market to purchase a registry defragger, would you be willing to pay $19.95 for Auslogics Registry Defrag? If not, then please name the price that you prefer.
    Yes, this is such a good program that’s a really cheap price for it!

  3. Happy Person

    Hi again Ashraf, so sorry for not reading your requirements above for qualifying to enter this drawing..here is my second/corrected submission, with my answers to your Questions:

    1. Yes, I’ve defragged my PC before using Advanced System Care Pro.

    2. My favorite aspect/feature about Auslogics Registry Defrag is its efficiency, accuracy, and relatively light use of system resources, compared with other similar programs.

    3. Suggestion for improvement – make the program totally portable, so it can be run from a USB thumb/flash drive for ease and convenience.

    4. If I were in the market to buy such a program, I would not pay $19.95 for it. I’d be willing to pay only $10.00 for it.

    Lastly (again, for your benefit) I’m a donor.

    Thanks,
    Inas

  4. Fred

    1.) Glary Utilities
    2.) Registry defrag will improve performance of the computer, speed up boot time a little.
    3.) I´ve never tried it.
    4.) I prefer freeware. But if i really would be in the need of a professional registry cleaner i think i would pay the $19.95.

  5. Ira

    1. Have you ever defragged your registry in the past? If so, with what software?
    I do from time to time, using WinRescue

    2. What is your favorite aspect of Auslogics Registry Defrag?
    Improvement of Windows performance.

    3. Is there anything Auslogics can improve in Registry Defrag (bug fixes, more features, portability, etc.)? If so, please specify.
    I would not pretend to know enough about this software without having used it. I presume that every program ever invented can be improved, however.

    4. If you were in the market to purchase a registry defragger, would you be willing to pay $19.95 for Auslogics Registry Defrag? If not, then please name the price that you prefer.

    I prefer free software; unless and until I have tried Auslogics Registry Defrag and become convinced that it is the cat’s pajamas, I am not willing to pay for it.

    These are my honest answers, even if they are not politically correct. I do want to win a free copy.

  6. Lee

    1. WinUtilities Pro 9.41 – Registry Cleaner and CCleaner’s ‘Registry cleaning’ feature.
    2. The belief I can increase the response time of programs and the general speed of my P.C. V important to me.
    3. Make it fail safe so it cannot mess the registry.
    4. I would pay the asking price if I knew it would increase program response time.

  7. A. S.

    1. WinUtilities Pro 9.38 – Registry Cleaner and CCleaner‘s ‘Registry cleaning’ feature.
    2. The belief I can increase the response time of programs and the general speed of my P.C.
    3. Maybe some details – in gradations of complexity, for novice users up to the advanced bunch – as to what each broken link, revealed after the preliminary scan of the registry, means.
    4. I would pay the asking price if I was convinced I would be given a wealth of understandable info about what the program has revealed, along with some advice, perhaps.

  8. David

    1.No have not defragged the registry on my computer.
    2. Registry defrag will improve performance of my computer, speed up response time.
    3.Having not used this software I cannot comment on what needs to be improved.
    4. yes, would pay $19.95 seems worth the price

  9. bem

    1. I’ve used Eusing and Iobit, both free versions, as well as the free Auslogics.

    2. The speed of the Auslogics is quite impressive.

    3. Not enough experience with it to comment overall. If there’s a way around the reboot…

    4. $19.95 seems like a fair price for a quality program that provides support. On the other hand, free IS my favorite price. ;)

  10. MerleOne

    Hi, count me in please.

    I have used TuneUp utilities 2007 to defrag my registry in the past.

    My favorite aspect of Auslogics Registry
    Defrag : reliability.

    Improvements : none seen yet

    If I had to pay, I wouldn’t go over $10

  11. Emrys

    # Have you ever defragged your registry in the past? If so, with what software? Smart Defrag
    # What is your favorite aspect of Auslogics Registry Defrag? It can defrag my Returnil partition and flash drives
    # Is there anything Auslogics can improve in Registry Defrag (bug fixes, more features, portability, etc.)? If so, please specify. Speed it up; defrag the registry also
    # If you were in the market to purchase a registry defragger, would you be willing to pay $19.95 for Auslogics Registry Defrag? If not, then please name the price that you prefer. I would not pat for a defrag program

  12. jumbi

    I would like to join the contest too.

    1) Yes, I have used Glary Utilities.
    2 & 3) Don’t know, never used it ! A portable version maybe…
    4) The price maybe reasonable for its quality, but should be ~10$, because there are many freebies to do the job.

  13. Matt

    1. Have you ever defragged your registry in the past? If so, with what software?

    Yes, Windows own soft.

    2. What is your favorite aspect of Auslogics Registry Defrag?

    Improves computer performance with good speed.

    3. Is there anything Auslogics can improve in Registry Defrag (bug fixes, more features, portability, etc.)? If so, please specify.

    Option of schedulling scan.

    4. If you were in the market to purchase a registry defragger, would you be willing to pay $19.95 for Auslogics Registry Defrag?

    Possibly.

  14. nektar

    I am so happy from their defragler (and I have tried too many) that I want this too!
    Pls, count me in.
    (I am donor)

    1) Yes (tune up, etc)
    2) Reliability of Auslogics
    3) Don’t know yet!
    4) I suppose around 5$, not because its not worthing more probably but because of competition, especially sets of util which include a registry defrag tool.

  15. Ed Snyder

    Gentlemen:
    Thank you for this opportunity.
    1. Have you ever defragged your registry in the past? If so, with what software?

    No I haven’t, I do use the free version of your registry cleaner and value it highly.

    2. What is your favorite aspect of Auslogics Registry Defrag?

    That is the main reason I am here. I don’t defrag my registry; in fact, this is the first I have heard of the concept. If this is up to your free standards in other software, it should be effective, quick and very easy to use.

    3. Is there anything Auslogics can improve in Registry Defrag (bug fixes, more features, portability, etc.)? If so, please specify.

    Not having used the software, anything I say would only be a guess. I would be more than happy to, as I have done countless times before, register comments with a software developer, in this case, you.

    4. If you were in the market to purchase a registry defragger, would you be willing to pay $19.95 for Auslogics Registry Defrag? If not, then please name the price that you prefer.

    I can’t see myself considering any other developer’s registry defragging software at any price. That said, Auslogic is not “Any other developer”. I use free versions of your Registry Cleaner and Disk Defrag. They are both splendid pieces of software. They are perhaps too good, as I can find no reason to look for anything better even with Auslogics. One thing is certain; if I feel a need for any software you handle yours will be my first stop. Money is far less important to me than trust and value. You have a long track record of not trashing my machine. That is a very good thing and $20 for you software is quite reasonable.

    Thanks again for this opportunity and for the freeware you distribute. Please keep up the good work.

    Ed

  16. Ande

    1. Yes. Registry Mechanic, Glary Utilities

    2. Reduces the Registry size and the memory that the registry takes up.

    3. Speed, and figuring some way to reset without a reboot.

    4. No. It should be around $9.95; reason –the product doesn’t do enough to merit the price. Now if it did disk de-frags as well as registry de-frags, or some other purpose, I could see it.

    Regards!

  17. gpc111

    Hello all. hope you are doing well. Here are my answers….
    1) I have defragged my registry using the free version of Auslogics Registry Defrag.
    2)Before and after info
    3)I don’t like that I need to reboot my computer. I know it’s needed but I hate any process that requires a reboot.
    4)$19.95 seems like a fair price. Plus Auslogics does make some quality products. Maybe they could offer a combo with their disk defrag to make the offer more attractive.

  18. CharlieSkywalker

    Hi Ashraf,

    I would like to participate in the drawing for Auslogics Registry Defrag.
    Here are my answers:

    1. Yes, I have. With Registry Mechanic.
    2. Improves applications response time.
    3. Portability.
    4. No. It should be around $12.

  19. cyber-geek

    Apparently I fail to qualify simply because I have never defragged my registry, have never even heard of Auslogics outside of this site, and cannot compare it to any experiences I have had with any other product. I also am not able to afford any donation to your site, though I certainly will be doing so in the future once my financial status improves. How to contribute to this site in any other way is not readily apparent by any of the materials I have read here, but I am an English scholar and would be happy to contribute my skills should you find a place where I might fit in. Thanx for this offer, as it does seem a valuable tool for those who actually know what it does. Have a great day.

  20. kerry

    1. I use the windows defrag as most I have tried make no difference

    2. Optimizes registry and actually cleans out the junk, tried cc cleaner and it crashed my pc.

    3. Remove all dead links without missing anything, correct inaccurate links, and definitely be portable

    4. If it works and improvement is noticed yes 20.00 is a good price with free lifetime upgrades.

  21. computersexplore

    1. No, just cleaned it quite a number of times.
    2. “Makes Windows running more stable” is my choice, with “Improves application response time” in second.
    3. Portability would be most desirable, so I can help others’ computers without having to install on them.
    4. If I really, really needed it I would pay for it, but it should not be more than half the price of the BoostSpeed, which should not exceed $19.95 US, IMHO.

  22. Refpeuk

    Have you ever defragged your registry in the past? If so, with what software?

    I used Tuneup Utilities 2008. Also a small free software that I can’t remember the name of.

    What is your favorite aspect of Auslogics Registry Defrag?

    Well, for one it’s made by a well known company. I also like it’s simple and easy to understand interface-it looks pretty similar to basically every hard drive defrag I’ve used

    Is there anything Auslogics can improve in Registry Defrag (bug fixes, more features, portability, etc.)? If so, please specify.

    Yes, I believe that this program should be a defragger for both the registry and the hard drive.

    If you were in the market to purchase a registry defragger, would you be willing to pay $19.95 for Auslogics Registry Defrag? If not, then please name the price that you prefer.

    I’d be willing to pay it if they included a good hard drive defrag with it. Otherwise I’d probably pay only $10.

    So yeah, hopefully I can win this to see why they think such a simple program is worth $20 while other people give it away for free.

  23. giovanni (King of Freebies...LOL!)

    1. Have you ever defragged your registry in the past? If so, with what software?

    Yes, I have!! I did it using TUNE UP UTILITIES, REGISTRY MECHANIC 7 and a little freeware tool called “Quicksys RegDefrag”

    2. What is your favorite aspect of Auslogics Registry Defrag?

    Improves the overall computer performance effectively by compacting the registry

    3. Is there anything Auslogics can improve in Registry Defrag (bug fixes, more features, portability, etc.)? If so, please specify.

    The (free of course) version I used a few weeks ago (see link below….LOL!!) automatically added itself in startup without warning you in any way; this is not good because in the end it consumes a great deal of computer resources for nothing. Another improvement could be to release a portable version.

    http://www.321download.com/LastFreeware/page38.html#Auslogics%20Registry%20Defrag

    4. If you were in the market to purchase a registry defragger, would you be willing to pay $19.95 for Auslogics Registry Defrag?

    Taking into account the free alternatives mentioned above, the price seems to me a little bit high for my tastes and…for my (poor) wallet…LOL!

  24. Jeanjean

    1) Yes, I first used NTREGOPT in combination with PageDefrag.
    2 & 3) Don’t know, never use it ! A portable version maybe…
    4) The price is reasonable but, for a particular, there are enough freebies to do the job.
    Thanks for the offer !

  25. Ramesh Kumar

    Going by the high “trust quotient” I place in you I am sure this app must be very good.

    I admire your innovative new “questions-based-approach”. It reflects a new genre of freebies – aka “limited freebies with knowledge-based-winnership” Wow! That’s a new genre! :)

    It rocks as much & as well as your reviews. The former because of “innovation” & the latter because of “pure undiluted sense”.

    That said, I must confess I do not know the answers to these wonderful questions. However I am reading these posts to learn those answers.
    Ramesh :)

  26. Panayotis

    1) No, I have Not.
    2) The Detailed Analysis of Registry Fragmentation: The -Before- and -After- Effect explanation.
    3) Portable version perhaps.
    4) Auslogics Registry Defrag is a fine Tool at the Right Price! I would be definitively willing to purchase it.

  27. DJ

    It’s pretty fast :)

    A good portable version would be nice..

    * If you were in the market to purchase a registry defragger, would you be willing to pay $19.95 for Auslogics Registry Defrag? If not, then please name the price that you prefer.

    If was gonna pay some money to buy i would buy it. It’s not that expensive. But still many companies offer free licenses of their software so why pay??

  28. Karl

    1) NTREGOPT along with ERUNT before and Page Defrag (sysinternals) after.

    2) I haven’t used it yet but I’m hoping easy of use.

    3) If it doesn’t have a built in backup (just in case) then that and a similar function to Page Defrag (on reboot) so it’s one stop covers everything.

    4) At the moment $0. If it could do the same as ERUNT, NTREGOPT and Page Defrag in one go. $4.95 because I don’t believe it can actually do better so it’s just a convenience fee.

    If I win I hope the product will open my eyes as to why it’s worth $19.95. Usually commercial s/w offers something over freeware but NTREGOPT and Page Defrag are a very hard pair to top in this department.

  30. Jabtano

    I would give this a shot for sure.I really don’t place a price on programs. People still have to take the time to write the code and put it all together.$20.00 dollars isn’t really a large sum of money when one thinks about it really.

  31. Mayank

    1) Yes, With 2 – i) Tweak Now Power Pack 2009
    ii) Tune Up Utilities 2010

    2) Improves Overall Computer Performance

    3) A Schedule Scan

    4) Well Too High Just For A Registry Defragger
    My Price – $10.99

  33. paf

    Hi Ashraf, thanks for the opportunity. Please count me in. Here are my answers:
    1.No.
    2.I’ve never used it, but from what I can see I would say: safety and improvement of boot time.
    3.I can not tell, as I’ve never used it.
    4.I think it’s a little to much. I would say something around 6-9 euros.

    Cheers.

  34. Ozzie

    In relation to the negative poster, what can I say but there’s one born every minute, isn’t there?

    Thanks for the offer Ashraf! I’ll pass as I got a hold of the Auslogics BoostSpeed giveaway a little while back, in which the registry defrag is included. But it’s a great product and is highly recommended (IM-Humble-O). Good luck everyone!

  35. Bela

    1.
    Yes, in the past Auslogics Registry Defrag, now TuneUp Registry Defrag.

    2.
    Speed.Precision.Performance.

    3.
    Probably yes, but as a ordinary user I can say that Auslogics is perfect.

    4.
    I think the price is fair, but for me $19.95 it’s too much, I’m a freeware maniac :)

  36. Adrian

    1. Have you ever defragged your registry in the past? If so, with what software?

    Yes. With a full System Utilities suite. I forgot which. Seems to be Ashampoo WinOptimizer.

    2. What is your favorite aspect of Auslogics Registry Defrag?

    It would reduce boot time (although not too much)

    3. Is there anything Auslogics can improve in Registry Defrag (bug fixes, more features, portability, etc.)? If so, please specify.

    No. There are enough great features in this program.

    4. If you were in the market to purchase a registry defragger, would you be willing to pay $19.95 for Auslogics Registry Defrag? If not, then please name the price that you prefer.

    19.95 is a fair price, considering that it performs in a specific category, meaning that it would certainly perform better than system utilities suites. However, a price range around $15 would be better.

    Am I still considered an ex-author? If yes then I think I can get a special license.

  37. vhick

    1. Yes. I’m always used registry defragmenter than registry cleaner. I used NTREGOPT for this task.

    2. Improve the application response time and eliminate structural defects of the registry.

    3. Portability. Most especially the clean or “stealth” of its portability. No registry or folder that left behind. All in application folder. Perfect for usb use.

    4. Maybe its reasonable. But if its possible to make it lower than $10 or $5-$7 available in most 3rd world country, that will be great!

  38. Mike Brazil

    Please include me in the drawing for Auslogics Registry Defrag:

    1. No.

    2. Defragging the registry should reduce boot time to some degree.

    3. I can’t really tell until I start using it.

    4. I think $19.95 is rather high for this type of utility. I’d be willing to pay $9.95.

  39. Grr

    1. Have you ever defragged your registry in the past? If so, with what software?

    No.

    2. What is your favorite aspect of Auslogics Registry Defrag?

    Reduces the Registry size and the amount of RAM the registry takes up. I don;t know but some or the other process would be eating my RAM. Just after boot, RAM usage will be 600Mb.

    3. Is there anything Auslogics can improve in Registry Defrag (bug fixes, more features, portability, etc.)? If so, please specify.

    A portable version would be great. Caz it will help bypass use it where access to registry is disabled, example-office.

    4. If you were in the market to purchase a registry defragger, would you be willing to pay $19.95 for Auslogics Registry Defrag? If not, then please name the price that you prefer.

    No. It believe it should be around $10.95 – $12.95; reason –there would be additional tax of $2-4..crossing the total price as $20 & more..

    Thanks,
    Grr

  40. Friend

    AOA Ashraf,

    I hope you are fine. I also want to participate in giveaway. I have heard positive reviews about Auslogics Registry Defrag. Hope I will have one license out of 10.

    1. I do registry defragmentation. I use TweakNow PowerPack 2009.
    2. Registry structural improvements + reduced size
    3. Portability + more features
    4. I would prefer to buy it in $0.0000001

  41. Rita

    I love Auslogics Registry defrag. I use the free trial version, and when that runs out, I will be sad. I would love to have a license so I can use it for a long time. I love how quick it is and does not tie up your system with a several-hours-long defrag.

  42. trk

    Have you ever defragged your registry in the past? If so, with what software?
    * yes, Spinright 6.0 & legacy MS utility
