Hi all! :)
I would like to see some new features of WRC:
1) Regarding the installed version of WRC (scilicet the uninstaller version): DON'T REMOVE c:\users\user-name\appdata\roaming\wise registry cleaner\backup folder and the files in it.
2) POSSIBILITY to select/tick/tap/check all found problems in a section and ignore them in one click.
Better: select part of the entries to ignore and ignore them in one click.
3) POSSIBILITY to ignore all sections in the custom area (at the present we need to select at least one section)
4) Command line parameter to defragment the Windows registry ONLY.

Hi JP,

Thank you for your suggestions:

1, In fact, when user uninstall WRC, we will ask user whether to remove config files. I guess most user don't read it and click "Yes" to continue uninstalling.

2, Sorry, i cannot understand you. can you describe more?

3, If you ignore all sections, why do you run WRC. I think this feature is not necessary.

4, It is a good idea,  i will let our tech dept. know it.


We want to put smile on your face.   :)

(I'm not J.P. ;))

When there are a lot of entries that an user wants to ignore, he is obliged to ignore them one by one.
The user could ignore a full section, but better than this would be to choose the items to ignore (like ctrl + click in Windows), then ignore them in one click.

Probably it is not necessary on WRC, BUT, IF I understood correctly, WRC is integrated into wise care 365.
An user could prefer to not use the registry cleaner function, when using Wise care 365 - indeed the same behavior appears in IT!

EDIT: I've just checked wise care 365 (2.92) and it seems that PC checkup is not fully optimizable (sigh...)

It seems that user can custom full checkup items. Right? We will consider it.

change backup file pattern and add computer name


Whenever a registry backup is performed then the following file name pattern is used:
 
yyyy-dd-mm hhmmss.reg
 
In order to keep the files sortable I would appreciate if you would put the month more to the left:
 
yyy-mm-dd hhmmss.reg
 
Furthermore I start Wise Registry Cleaner from USB flash drive and use it on multiple computers.
 
So I need another backup file name part to distinguish backups for the different computers.
 
Could you prepend the backup file name pattern by  the current local computer name like
 
COMPPETE yyyy-mm-dd hhmmss.reg
 
Thank you
Peter

Hi Peter,

 

Change backup file name, it is nice! We will consider it.

 

But the date format, I think it depends on your system date format. If your system date format is yyyy-dd-mm hhmmss, so Wise Registry Cleaner is same.

I have two images, one is yyyy-m-d, another is m-d-yyyy

Attached File  2.jpg   71.11K   4 downloads   Attached File  1.jpg   76.93K   7 downloads

 

If you want it display yyyy-dd-mm, you need to change system date format.

Control Panel-->Clock, Language, and Region-->Set the time and date-->Change date and time-->Change calendar settings, change Short date and Long date.

Hi Adminstrator,

I think your suggestion is NOT correct (at least unter 64bit Win7).

Have a look at the following snapshots of my date settings and you will find a third, different format.

I have an english Win7 but german regional settings. But the date format here is neither yyyy-dd-mm nor yyyy-mm-dd.

So Wise software must get the info from somewhere else.

Maybe you could offer some independent formats locally in Wise Cleaner

 

Thanks

Peter

I can confirm the same behavior (Italian date/time settings are quite similar to the German ones):

Hi pstein,

Indeed German(Germany) format has no yyyy-dd-mm nor yyyy-mm-dd. 

So, if you like yyyy-mm-dd, you'd better to change Formats as English.

Attached File  1.jpg   211.64K   2 downloads

 

Two reasons we cannot change it in WiseCleaner software

1) A Germany user, his system format is dd/mm/yy, and he like this, if wisecleaner change to yy/mm/dd, he would not like it. Different user of the world have different preference.

    So system settings is the best choice.

2) When you use wisecleaner to backup registry, or when its auto-clean task is starting, it popup a window to let you set up date formats, then start to backup or start clean. This kind of customer experience is so terrible.

    Do you like it?

Hi Admin,

 

the key fact is that yyyy-mm-dd is the natural sort order. Meanwhile I have 20 Registry backups and I need a sort.

Regional settings are for human readability which is not important here.

 

So I suggest to introduce in Wise an option (radio button):

 

Use as date format:

- yyyy-dd-mm

- regional settings (maybe as default value)

 

That should beimplementable without much effort.

Even more no user is prompted with something.

 

Could you add it (in addition to the previously suggested computer name prefix)?

 

Thx

Peter

My idea for the next version is to make that while doing "action", the cleaner won't show empty (clean) positions to make the view and results more cleaner

I have ALOT of entries that are Missing links, instead of ignoring them, we should be able to delete them.  Is this even something that can be done? Because just ignoring them does not clean the registry but deleting them will.

I'll repeat old suggestions (a bump after two years... :)) and include a new one:

  • Command line parameter to defragment the Windows registry ONLY.
  • Custom area: replace the scan button with the save button, to save the choices.
    I'd also prefer its previous location (bottom-left corner).
    When I/we click the top-right X, the choices won't be saved.
  • POSSIBILITY to select/tick/tap/check all found problems in a section and ignore them in one click.
    Better: select part of the entries to ignore and ignore them in one click; i.e., introduce arrows, CTRL+click and SHIFT+click functionality.
    Your competitors have got this functionality in their programs.
    When there are a lot of entries that an user wants to ignore, he is obliged to ignore them one by one (right-click on a item, left click on ignore, right-click on a item, left click on ignore, right-click on a item, left click on ignore, right-click on a item, left click on ignore, right-click on a item, left click on ignore, right-click on a item, left click on ignore, right-click on a item, left click on ignore, and so forth: imagine this procedure for a thousand of items...).
    The user could ignore a full section, but better than this would be to choose the items to ignore (like ctrl + click in Windows), then ignore them in one click.

Hey xiolee,

Thanks.

 

1. Command line parameter to defragment the Windows registry ONLY.

The developer team told me, Command line to defrag Windows registry is not impossible, because the defragment need a GUI interface to tell user time left and block user I/O operation.

 

2. Custom area: replace the scan button with the save button, to save the choices.
    I'd also prefer its previous location (bottom-left corner).
    When I/we click the top-right X, the choices won't be saved

Scan, user only need 1 step to scan using custom settings. But, Save, user need more steps, at least 2 steps, save settings then click Scan button. If you don't want to Scan immediately, just click top-right X to save and exit.

Thanks for your feedback, if many user don't like it, we will change it.

 

3. POSSIBILITY to select/tick/tap/check all found problems in a section and ignore them in one click

Thanks, but, how many entries do you want to ignore in normal use? I think the number may less than ten, only a few user may be over ten entries. If a user want to ignore a full section, he can add the registry key into exclusion list. I think it would be better than ignoring entries one by one.

So, we can add this function, but I think it is less useful, only a few user will use it in a special situation. If many user want it, we will add it.

Did you want to write "is not possible"? Otherwise, I didn't understand.
 

If you don't want to Scan immediately, just click top-right X to save and exit.

 
The problem about the top-right X is that it won't save the settings (I tried it, with portable version... I didn't try with the installed version).
If the X could save the settings, then there will be no problems.
By the way, it isn't quite clear if using the scan function inside the custom area will use the normal/safe scan or the deep scan.
 

how many entries do you want to ignore in normal use? I think the number may less than ten, only a few user may be over ten entries. If a user want to ignore a full section, he can add the registry key into exclusion list. I think it would be better than ignoring entries one by one.
So, we can add this function, but I think it is less useful, only a few user will use it in a special situation. If many user want it, we will add it.


I excluded actually 382 items (in WRC), one by one. :ph34r:
The problem arises when using the program for the first time (and following times): when I'm trying a new registry cleaner, the first thing I check is if I can exclude entries I don't want to delete/kill/erase/remove.
And to exclude hundreds of entries one by one could be very annoying.
After the first session, when I excluded the most, I excluded very few items from time to time.
Hence, IMO, it could be useful for new (intermediate/advanced) users, or old users that are reinstalling the software, or that are installing the software on another machine.

Hey xiaolee,

Sorry, I typed wrong words. Yes, I means we can't do it - defrag registry using command line.

 

The top right X button, there is minor bug, if you click Recommended then click X, it won't save settings, but if you select / deselect items, then click X, it will save settings.

We will fix it asap.

 

Okay, I will send it to the developer team.
