How do I install WinMaximizer?

Download and install WinMaximizer: http://www.winmaximizer.com/world/lang_en/download.

How do I uninstall WinMaximizer?

To uninstall the program, please do the following:

1. Go to Start -> Settings  -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs
2. Locate WinMaximizer in the list, select it and click on the "Remove" button.

Why should I use WinMaximizer?

Registry errors can prevent your system from running smooth or starting up correctly. When ever you open ANY program, install a new program or uninstall a program, signatures from that program are stored in the Registry and this builds up. When Windows starts it has to go through the registry and the more information there is, the SLOWER your computer gets. WinMaximizer is a tool that you can use safely and easily to delete unused signatures (keys), detect and repair the Registry errors and potentially prevent serious problems and performance issues on your Computer. Without regular Registry tuning, it is possible that your computer will not function normally, in fact it may even crash or not to be able to start up at some point.

WinMaximizer will not scan or repair

It can be becourse you have another program running on your computer that is "holding" on to a file on your computer or has created a temporary file that WinMaximizer can not scan or repair.

Try to deactivate your antivirus software and close all programs running on your computer and then scan again with WinMaximizer, you should also stop the programs you have in your system tray (lower right corner on your screen).

It can also be that you have some Malware on your computer that is not possible for WinMaximizer to remove. We suggest that you try to scan and clean your computer with Malwarebytes software.

Is there a free version of WinMaximizer?

You can try a free scan with WinMaximizer and have 25 errors fixed totally for free. After that you can choose to purchase WinMaximizer, have all errors in your registry fixed and have it scanned and cleaned on regular basis or to uninstall the program.

What is Windows Registry?

Windows Registry is a database which stores settings and options for the operating system for Microsoft Windows. It contains critical and important information and settings for hardware, software, users, and preferences of the PC. The average Registry will have hundreds or thousands of pieces of information read from and written to it every day.

Where do I find Windows Registry?

The Registry is stored in several files. The exact names and locations of these files depend on the version of Window you are using. They are all stored on your local computer though.

Can I skip scanning of  specific registries and items?

You can manage what you would like WinMaximizer to scan from your WinMaximizer menu. Click on "Scan for Errors" and choose which ones you want to skip.

In the "Startup Manager" menu you can uncheck applications that you do not want to have scanned in your start up.

During a scan of your computer you will be able to see what keys and files WinMaximizer has found and will delete, you can choose to ignore specific Registry items. Click on the “+” sign left of each Category and a list of found Registry issues is shown. You can see the ignore list under "Settings -> Ignore list" in your WinMaximizer menu, from here you can also "Un-Ignore" at any time.

How do I restore my registry?

To restore your registry please do the following:

1. Go to WinMaximizer client
2. Click on the "Restore" button
3. Select a restore point and click on the "Restore" button

Can I schedule a scan?

Yes you can. Open your WinMaximizer from Start -> All Programs -> WinMaximizer -> WinMaximizer. Click on "Settings" and "Manage Schedule", click on the "Manage" button. Choose the start time and how often you want your scan to run.

WinMaximizer will start up at the time you choose and run a scan on your computer.

Why do I have the same errors on my computer after several scans?

WinMaximizer finds and fixes the errors . Some programs unfortunately might recreate the same invalid entries that were removed in the first scan and WinMaximizer will therefore find them again in your system.

There is no need to be worried though as just a small number of errors may reappear after being removed by WinMaximizer. To get a rid of the errors you will need to find the program that is recreating them.

Why are only 25 errors fixed from all that were found?

This happens when you run the trial scan. WinMaximizer finds hundreds of errors but is fixing only 25 of them.
