Smith Micro Software Expands Consumer Product Portfolio By Launching CheckIt Registry Cleaner

Apr 22, 2008
CheckIt Registry Cleaner Designed to Clean, Protect and Seamlessly Repair Registry for Optimal PC Performance

ALISO VIEJO, CA - Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI) Consumer Group today announced the launch of CheckIt® Registry Cleaner, the latest offering to its popular CheckIt software line. CheckIt Registry Cleaner dramatically enhances PC performance by locating, cleaning, repairing and optimizing the PC registry. CheckIt Registry Cleaner also eliminates time-consuming error messages, program crashes and slow startup speeds, and saves users the cost of expensive hardware upgrades.

Computers accessing the Internet are bogged down by potentially dangerous and corrupt files that can damage the Windows registry and keep it from performing at top speed. Files and clutter left behind by deleted drivers and programs corrupt Windows registry settings and have the potential to quickly degrade the speed of even the newest and fastest PCs. CheckIt Registry Cleaner is designed to scan, optimize, clean and repair the Windows registry quickly and easily.

"The system registry contains a wealth of information about a computer's setup and configuration, but over time becomes saturated with redundant files and broken links that cause errors and system crashes," said Pauline Shumake, Senior Product Manager for Smith Micro Software, Inc. "The system registry is one of the most vital components of the PC and users shouldn't trust its performance to anyone other than a proven expert in system diagnostics and optimization. CheckIt Registry Cleaner gives users an easy way to clean their PC's system registry safely and with complete confidence."

CheckIt Registry Cleaner quickly identifies missing and invalid references, corrupt hardware drivers and orphaned startup programs within the registry, then repairs them to optimize PC performance without having to upgrade hardware.

CheckIt Registry Cleaner scans, locates, cleans and optimizes the following registry entries:

  • Application path, file extension, and Invalid file association entries that can point to missing programs, incorrect locations or file types
  • ActiveX OLE COM entries that no longer point to the correct controls.
  • System driver, user and system software setting entries for missing drivers or changed settings
  • Font and Help section entries that point to fonts or help files that are no longer used or have been moved
  • Shared DLL entries that point to DLL's that have been removed or changed locations
  • Sound and application event entries that are no longer being used
  • Startup entries for programs that do not start up automatically when you reboot your computer
  • Uninstall entries for products that have already been uninstalled and are no longer necessary

As part of this introductory offer, Smith Micro is offering a free scanner product that allows users to identify computer registry issues and provides an easy pathway for upgrading to CheckIt Registry Cleaner to correct the issues.
