The Settings option in the Registry cleaner interface allows you to configure various options related to the operation of the Registry Cleaner.
The Settings panel can be accessed by clicking the 'Settings' tab in the Registry Cleaner interface.
Create Restore Point before Clearing Registry
Selecting this option creates a Windows restore point prior to the registry cleaning operation. A Windows restore point is a snapshot of your system as it currently stands. This is useful because it allows you to roll back your system to its last known working state in the event of system failure or performance problems following software or hardware re-configuration. Comodo System Utilities provides this essential failsafe feature in all cleaning modules (for example, you also have the option to create a restore point before running Disk Cleaner and Privacy Cleaner operations).
If enabled, full backup of your Window's Registry will be created before EACH cleaning of the registry. This is the default and highly recommended setting. You can use this backup file to restore the registry to the current status in case you encounter any system issues or if you want to undo any changes. See Restore section for more details. You can store the backup files compressed, encrypted and password protected, providing an additional level of safety. You have to enter this password every time you restore the registry entries from the backup created by the Registry Cleaner. For more details on location, compression and encryption settings of the backup files, see Settings > Backup Settings section.
Provides an additional level of security to Registry Cleaning operations:
The Windows Registry hives will be backed up prior to any cleaning operation.
Should your system fail to restart after a cleaning operation then the Windows Registry will be automatically rolled back to its previous state and your system automatically rebooted.
On rebooting your system after any cleaning operation, Registry Protection provides you with the option of finalizing the changes or restoring the registry to its previous state.
Store Logs for Registry Clean
If enabled, the Registry Cleaner logs events history about each scan action and result.
Allows the user to view a history of previous scans.
