However the necessity and usefulness of registry cleaners is a controversial topic, with experts not agreeing on their benefit.

Survey Proves, Reimage Reduces Time And Effort Spent On Malware

Eighty percent of respondents reported that it takes at least half a day to a day to clean, re-image, and restore PCs affected by malware“, this claim by GreenBorder Technologies has been released today and is, indeed, in keeping with Reimage research.  Their main claim is that if only a business is prepared for such disasters much time would be saved.
