Privacy Scan

Protect your online privacy.

RegHunter helps you to maintain your digital privacy by providing you the ability to scan and selectively remove your web browsing history and other unnecessary traces left behind from day-to-day web surfing. RegHunter can also scan for and remove temporary files and other remnants from web browsing sessions.

Duplicate File Scan

Free up wasted disk space by removing unnecessary duplicate content.

Nowadays, with the proliferation of huge media files and other Texas-sized content, your hard drive space may seem to diminish by the day. In the shuffle of day-to-day downloading and file organization, it can be easy to inadvertently leave extra unneeded copies of large files scattered across your computer's file system. To address this problem, RegHunter incorporates a powerful duplicate file scanner that uses advanced algorithms to scan your system for unnecessary duplicate content. RegHunter's Duplicate File Scan analyzes files based on their actual content to identify exact duplicates - it does not rely on filenames, metadata, or other potentially inaccurate identifying features. RegHunter's Duplicate File Scan will conveniently and logically group identical content, allowing you to selectively prune unnecessary files to free up valuable disk space.

The Optimization section allows you to easily remove unneeded Windows Service Pack Backups, Windows Event Logs, and perform registry defragmentation functions. Although freely available as a feature of Windows, this section of RegHunter also provides convenient shortcuts to Microsoft Windows' built-in Disk Defragmentation and Disk Cleanup functionality.

Registry Monitor

For advanced users who wish to maintain a higher level of control over their system, RegHunter offers a Registry Monitor function, that can monitor your Windows registry in real-time to detect any changes to autostart registry locations.
