Max Registry Cleaner is considered as a fake registry cleaner. This classification is confirmed by the scan results of several anti-malware programs. The application uses a lot of false positives to make users believe that their computers have serious issues that need to be immediately fixed. However, the program mentions that to get them fixed, its licensed version needs to be purchased.

It is not a problem for users to pay for the decent software and to be satisfied with the useful features it offers. Unfortunately, this is not the case with Max Registry Cleaner. The software uses a lot of deceptive methods for infiltrating itself into computers, plus it tricks users into paying for its registered version by presenting fictitious or partially fictitious scan reports. Finally, Max Registry Cleaner is not able to fix the majority of problems that are real and definitely need to be dealt with.
Max Registry Cleaner main features
Considering the design, Max Registry Cleaner might look as a decent utility. It mentions that upgrading to the full version of the program will lead to the following improvements:
- Faster PC performance;
- No more crashes;
- Increased startup speed.
The majority of problems with Windows Registry can be fixed with the help of built-in system optimization tools, which are the part of the Windows operating system. Max Registry Cleaner claims that it can perform the aforesaid optimization in a much better way. So, it acts in a very pushy manner whey it tries to force you into activating its licensed version. As soon as the software is installed, it will immediately suggest that you buy its full version. If you disagree with the proposal and decide to first try it, you will get another warning that the functionality of the program will be diminished and that you will not be able to fully enjoy its features. Thus, the program will keep repeatedly instructing you to visit its registration webpage where you may finally purchase it.
Unfortunately, the ability of Max Registry Cleaner to enhance the system performance was considerably overestimated by its authors. The program often imitates fixing your Windows Registry, even when its full version is activated. It does not fix the majority of essential bugs that indeed slow down the system. So, frankly speaking, there is no much difference between the trial and the full version of the program.
Max Registry Cleaner distribution
The Internet is full of programs similar to Max Registry Cleaner. To penetrate into the computer, they use several deceptive techniques. It is quite unlikely that you will make your personal decision to download, install and buy it. So, its developers refer to the practice of bundling the program with other free applications. You may find some valuable free software on the web and decide to install it. The problem, however, is that the installer may additionally contain other extra utilities that are absolutely not needed. When you fail to be attentive during the Setup process you may end up installing Max Registry Cleaner and other unwanted software.
Installation of Max Registry Cleaner without your real intention is not the worst thing that could happen. The program is not a virus, however, it is not a genuine software worth paying for. Very often drive-by bundle installations contain the software that works in a more aggressive way and could essentially damage your system. For example, some P2P (peer-to-peer) download resources contain malicious components integrated with the cracked programs they host. Of course, downloading and installing this software may result in a more devastating outcome for your PC.
How to uninstall Max Registry Cleaner

Now, when you uninstall that free program, Max Registry Cleaner will still remain active, as well as other extras that the bundle contained.

Simply access the Control Panel, find Max Registry Cleaner and uninstall it in a usual way.
Apart from manual system fix referred to above, we believe that scanning your PC with the decent anti-virus tool is of great importance today.
