So what's the deal with Wise Care 365? Does it by any chance require, only work on very fast and powerful computers? Is there a minimum Processor that a computer must have in order for Wise Care 365 to work properly?
Last year when I first tried Wise Care 365, it was on my old Dell GX280 Small Form Factor with only a Pentium 4 processor and either 1 or 2 Gig of RAM running Windows XP Home SP3. As I recall, as soon as I would try the Registry Cleaner function, my GX280's CPU fan would quickly start spinning at top speed, sounding like a helicopter. And the scanning would immediately go into a snail's pace crawl to the point that I would quickly have to abort. Yet, the standalone Wise Registry Cleaner (PortableApps.com version) would scan quickly, without a problem and without remotely making my GX280 break a sweat.
Now that I have a Dell Optiplex 780 with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 4 Gig of RAM running Windows XP Pro SP3, the other day I again decided to give Wise Care 365 another shot. This computer being a much more powerful and quieter computer, the CPU fan does not go into top speed helicopter mode when running a scan with the Registry Cleaner function. But, the scan does take a noticeably, undeniably LONG time at 4 minutes and 35 seconds! That while the standalone Wise Registry Cleaner took all of 13 seconds ... and found the SAME 41 items that it took Wise Care 365's Registry Cleaner function 4 minutes and 35 seconds to find.
So what's going on?
(1) Is Wise Care 365 not meant for older, weak Pentium era computers with Windows XP?
(2) Why does the Wise Care 365 Registry Cleaner function take wayyy longer to complete a scan vs. the standalone Wise Registry Cleaner ... while finding the same amount of items? From what I see, I'm tempted to reason that maybe it's that the Wise Care 365 Registry Cleaner function is wayyy more thorough than the standalone Wise Registry Cleaner ... even though ultimately the same amount of items are found by both. Because it's not like the Wise Care 365 Registry Cleaner function is scanning at a crawl on my Dell Optiplex 780. No. I see that it's actually scanning very speedily. It appears to be checking a lot of something. Unless it's an optical illusion, I'm tempted to think that the Wise Care 365 Registry Cleaner function scans a ton more Registry Entries than the standalone Wise Registry Cleaner. I just keep going back to that in the end, ultimately both apps find the same amount of items. Odd.
