Scans 15 Different Problem Categories

WinThruster uses a comprehensive scanning technology that scans for issues in all areas of your PC that could cause performance issues. These include:


Com / ActiveX Entries


COM (Component Object Model) is Microsoft's component software architecture developed primarily for Windows. It is the foundation upon which OLE and ActiveX are based, and provides a means to re-use code without requiring re-compilation. In COM, a component is a platform-specific binary file that compliant applications and other components can utilize. Programs incorporating a component's services never have access to its internal data structure, but instead include pointers to its standardized interface. Thus, it is possible for components to interact with each other regardless of how they work or what language they are written in.

COM+ is an enhanced version of COM that provides better security and improved performance. DCOM (Distributed Component Object Model) is an extension of COM that allows applications and components to communicate with each other over a network. WinThruster will search areas of the registry where com/activeX entries are stored and confirm that the physical path maps back correctly to the entries in the registry, if not, then the defective path will be removed from the registry.


Uninstall Entries


Whenever you install software on your machine it will leave necessary entries on your machine especially in your Registry. Most software comes with an Installer and an Uninstaller, but not all software is uninstalled properly so that it cleans up after itself. It's not necessarily the software's fault as there can be many reasons for the program not being able to clean up after itself. You might have an anti-virus that prevents a complete uninstall or another program that has blocked the uninstall process. There could be specific reasons for leaving traces in the Registry as a service for the user if he plans reinstalling the product and therefore leaves information behind. But there is also sloppy software that just hasn't been written well and leaves Entries behind.

This is where WinThruster helps you out by finding unnecessary leftover Entries and erasing them. WinThruster will search uninstall registry areas to confirm that a valid file path exists to the files listed. If the uninstall path to the file does not exist, the item's placeholder in the registry will be removed.


Font Entries


If WinThruster finds any invalid Entries there it's usually because there has been an application issue in an Office program, another word processing program, graphics and games, Font files are left corrupt but it's easy to cure these inconsistencies and keep them from taking up space in your Registry. WinThruster detects and confirms that fonts registered in windows physically map back correctly to the font file. If a font entry exists in Windows, but the physical file does not exist, the registry will be fixed to remove that items mapping.


Shared DLLs


Many programs install the same DLL's.The fact that it has been installed gets recorded to the SharedDLLs registry key. This allows Windows to keep track of how many times that dll has been installed. Every time a program uses a shared DLL it will be registered to the Shared DLL Registry Key, but this information is most often left when the program is uninstalled. WinThruster will clean up this information and either reset or delete left over or faulty Entries.

WinThruster scans the shared DLL locations of the registry to make certain that the associated DLL physically exists at the specified location. If the DLL does not exit, WinThruster will automatically remove the faulty or missing reference from the registry.


Application Paths


You can call this a Directory of which programs are where. If these paths are not correctly stated programs will fail or "get lost". WinThruster will search and fix these issues and make sure they are written correctly in the Application Paths. Note: by fix we mean delete the missing path. Registry programs remove items that do not map back physically to paths, etc. They do not repair in the sense of making a bad path somehow work. If the path does not exist, the item is removed. This has the effect of preventing potential issues that can slow down and even cause programs to crash.


Help File Information


Within most computer programs, there are links to help files that are there to provide you with help using the program. It is frustrating when you click on the "help" section of a program only to have the program crash! WinThruster fixes this program by repairing invalid help file references so that those program help files work properly.


Windows Startup Items


Some programs will put themselves into the Windows Startup either because they are necessary for the computer to use during startup or because they can annoy you the most this way.

When uninstalled, moved or changed, they don't always get unregistered registered correctly and reassigned; this therefore slows your PC down during startup, displays errors or just annoys you on your computer. WinThruster checks items that are set to always run on startup from various locations in the registry and confirms that these item files physically exist. If they do not, the startup item can be removed from the registry from this scan.

Please notice that you can control these Windows Startup Items in WinThruster under UTILITIES and STARTUP MANAGER. Here you can activate or deactivate each Startup Programs as you please, but be sure that you do not deactivate important Startup Programs such as Anti-Virus or programs windows needs to work correctly.


File / Path References


There will most often be results in this category. Registry Items that are assorted with non-existing files or Folders will show up here. Take your Temporary Files that are often created during startup, they are no longer necessary but have left a signature here. Some programs will create Temporary Entries in this area while they are running and that is why you can suddenly find new Entries here even though you have just cleaned your computer. This has little consequences and you should not worry about it. WinThruster maps items in several registry locations to confirm that files and paths in these locations exist. If they do not, this is considered a registry issue and these items can be removed.


Program Shortcuts


Ever had the Issue "Windows is searching for the program"? If program is uninstalled or moved, the Shortcut activation cannot find the right program to start. WinThruster removes references to shortcut items that do not map back to the location shortcut contained in the registry. If the location does not exist, it will delete it in the registry or delete/correct the Entries in the Registry.


Empty Registry Keys


Empty Registry Keys are created all the time on the computer when you move, uninstall or delete items. This is usually a Category where there are often found Issues/Entries that are incorrect or Empty. While not necessarily an issue, generally empty keys offer no advantage to remaining in the registry. This option removes detected empty registry keys that contain no value information. Some keys are sometimes place in programs as place-holders whether they are used or not. In some cases, some keys are considered "Self-healing", which means that even though the key is deleted and thought to offer no value, some programs automatically will recreate these keys. If you run into keys that are self-healing, you always have the option to add them to the Ignore list found under SETTINGS in WinThruster.


File Associations


As the word says, the Key are associated with a file. Its key has issues or faulty Entries; it will slow down your computer or make it impossible to open documents by double-clicking them. File associations allow you to double-click on a file of a know extension such as a PDF file, word document, graphic file, etc. and have the program that is associated with that file type automatically load the file. If the path that points back to the application that loads a specific file type extension is missing, then the file association will not work, and may cause your system to hang or become slow or unresponsive. WinThruster detects issues in file association areas of the registry and will remove the bad associations from the registry.


Shared Folders


Similar to shared DLL problems, many programs share the same directory references. WinThruster scours your Windows registry to make sure that none your folder references are invalid entries. See the "Shared DLLs" link for more information about this relationship.


Invalid Class Keys


A Class Key also called CLSID and works as a Program ID for each program installed. Each program Class Key has at least a Default Value and one "Subkey" - CLSID / CLASS ID The Class ID is always Unique. If these are mixed up or have errors, this can cause serious issues and slow down on your computer. WinThruster will make sure every ID is correctly associated with the right file.


Sound & App Events


Every computer has sound files. These are sound files that are directly associated with windows sounds and OS functionality. Such as beeps and clicks for errors, message boxes, etc.

These files often get moved, changed and corrected, but WinThruster will make sure your computer has registered them correctly and cleanup any issues.


CLSID / TypeLib / Interface Entries


These types of Registry entries control how Windows combines different components to perform complex tasks. Problems here can cause errors, task failures, or even system crashes.

Instantly Reverse Your Repairs

Sometimes changes to your PC can result in causing more issues. Because of this, WinThruster makes a backup copy of your registry before any changes are made, allowing for easy restore of your PC. Just one click of the "Reverse Repair" button brings your PC back to it's previous state.

Automatic Repair Scheduling

WinThruster allows you to create customer scanning schedules that work around the days and times that you choose. You can choose daily, weekly, monthly, at startup, or any other time you want. You can even specify specific days and times (eg. Sundays at 2.00 AM).

Easy Startup Program Manager

One of the biggest causes of slow PC issues is related to the number of programs that your computer automatically loads during startup. If you see several icons in your system tray (it's the Windows bar at the bottom of your screen that contains the time of day), it's likely that you have too many programs loading at startup. WinThruster fixes this issue by providing you with a utility to easily manage your startup. You can disable or enable any of the programs that load at startup in a few simple clicks.

Designed to Meet Your Unique Needs

WinThruster is designed to fit the needs of any user. As a part of this complete flexibility, you can choose to customize the following options:

  • Choose preferred language
  • Run on system startup
  • Close WinThruster after repair
  • Minimize WinThruster while scanning for issues
  • Auto Repair Issues
  • Create backup before repairing issues
  • Check for updates automatically
  • Ask me before downloading updates
  • Auto scan for issues when software is launched

Custom Categories Ignore List

If you are an advanced PC user, you can choose which categories of performance scanning that you want to include or ignore. This is a valuable feature to save time scanning certain categories that you may not want to scan everytime.

Complete Scanning Logs

Another advanced feature of WinThruster is the "Log Details" screen within the "Settings" menu. In this menu, you can view the exact dates and times of each performance scan. You can open any of these log files to see the exact details of what WinThruster completed during each respective scan. From this screen you can also choose which scan you would like to "reverse repair", if necessary.
