Many existing users of XP Repair Pro are already enjoying the registry repair features it provides. This makes it more difficult to see value in upgrading to the latest 2010 edition. In this article I’ll take a look at what new features have been added in the latest version and point out some additional value-added tools.
The product name is probably quite a poor choice. Using XP in its title implies that it is only for Windows XP. This is not true as it supports many Windows OS. The product is primarily a registry repair tool. If however you need to fix DLL faults or missing device drivers then try resorting to Reimage.
All registry cleaners should be easy to use and capable of fixing a wide range of faults. XP Repair Pro can scan and analyze your system in one or two clicks. Moreover, it is checking for over 60,000 different bugs that the manufacturers have identified. This effectiveness has been one of the major draws for its huge existing customer base.
More technical users are also catered for with a number of nice advanced scans. These can be used to tune your operating system and improve performance. The documentation goes into extensive detail about how to use these scans and the online user forums are a great discussion point for seeing how others have benefited from them.
What can really attract upgrades in XP Repair Pro are the new tools that have been added. Many of these are more like PC repair tools as they include a template file cleaner, a registry defragmentation tool, a start up application manager and proxy access for anonymous Internet connectivity.
You should not however lose sight of what registry cleaners are really for. XP Repair Pro can fix a large amount of registry faults and also provides its own recovery center to backup and restore versions of your registry (useful for those instances where repairs cannot be made).
