What is Registry Life?

Registry Life is an unwanted program that creates issues with the machine because it only claims to fix errors

Registry LifeRegistry Life is a potentially unwanted program that creates issues with the system instead of cleaning the registry or any other junk files. Registry Life – the system tool that should optimize the system and repair the registry, but the application is categorized as a PUA due to the stealthy installation methods and commercial content creator involvement. The program comes when users install the program unintentionally when other freeware is downloaded from the internet. Skipping through steps or relying on shady developers and distributors can create more issues than you think, so anything that is similar to these ChemTable tools should be considered potentially unwanted and harmful.

Registry Life PUP should be a registry cleaning and system optimization utility, but this program has no value. The registry cleaner is considered a deceptive tool because it uses intentionally positive results of the system check to convince people that their devices have crucial problems. This is how developers can promote their program or trick people into purchasing the licensed version of the tool. All the claims about cleaning or optimizing features are false, and the application cannot perform any of the supposed functions.

Type Rogue system tool/ Potentially unwanted program
Symptoms The program shows false results of the system issues or registry entries that need repairing. These problems are not real and not related to the particular machine, so even the promoted tool can't fix those issues only clear the created list

Distribution The official site of the program with all the claims listed tricks people into downloading the program on purpose and intentionally. Also, other PUPs and free applications can trigger redirects to this suspicious distribution site or even allow automatic downloads

This program is not a Registry Life virus but the application can be considered to be possibly dangerous since there are many false claims on the official site and promotional advertisements. It is common for such PUPs to promote itself online and push full version or the PRO tool by claiming that there are no other solutions for these issues with files and registry entries.

If you get those alerts about the system issues or affected files out of nowhere, you should immediately consider the program, that created those warnings, dangerous. Nothing that comes on your screen in any way related to Registry Life should be suspicious because any intrusive content, changes that the program makes can trigger other issues with a machine or reroute you to malicious material online.

The questionable program creates changes, and even during the setup of the Registry Life program, pop-ups with possible alterations appear on the screen. You should pay close attention to details and any alterations that happen behind your back when the PUP runs, so you can expect symptoms or changes.

The affected Windows registry and any changes made there with entries and preferences can trigger problems with crucial system functions or programs, so there might be some damage left behind when you remove Registry Life. Anti-malware tools can eliminate the threat, potentially unwanted program, other files, or applications that can be considered dangerous.

However, the damage that Registry Life PUP or any other unwanted tool triggers on the machine still is there. You need to change those settings, remove added entries and directories to get functions back to normal work. This is not the best manual solution, so rely on proper PC repair tools that have some Windows files and can recover the registry, system files for you. We can suggest FortectIntego for this.

Registry Life reports are not reliable ant the program shows faulty information to trick people into believing that the machine has some security issues. The cleaner is not going to fix any problems with malicious files, corrupted functions, or even junk files. The modifying registry is not changing anything crucial in regards to the optimization or program improvements.

Registry Life can even get detected[2] as a suspicious or possibly dangerous program by AV engines. PUP.Optional.RegistryLife is one of the detection results that can appear on the list of found programs. If that happens on your machine, you should immediately move on to cleaning procedures.

Even if you installed the Registry Life tool on propose because you got tricked by those promotional ads or wanted to get a reliable application and received the pop-up/ redirect in time. There are no other solutions for such infections besides the full cleaning scans using AV tools. Then you can go through other parts of the machine like browser settings and look for any suspicious material. Registry Life virusRegistry Life - the program that creates issues with the system when fake errors didn't get repaired.

Downloads of shady tools happen automatically or unwillingly

There are various methods that PUP creators can use for the distribution, but the most common way for these system tools to spread is the shady third-party installers that include unwanted programs and files. Software bundling is the method that experts[3] tend to warn about the most. Those packages that PUP vendors can spread their products easily whit creates the damage.

When downloading sites, peer-to-peer services, and other misleading pages promote and distribute shady programs, and you skip through steps during the process, you cannot ensure the proper installation and safe download of the program. It is a big mistake to choose free download sites or torrent pages as your primary source of software instead of the official provider's page.

Rely on official developers, providers, distribution sites, and always go for Advanced or Custom installation options to ensure the proper installs and control the list of downloaded apps fully. Once the full list of apps is displayed, de-select anything suspicious or questionable.

How to prevent from getting system tools

Do not let government spy on you

The government has many issues in regards to tracking users' data and spying on citizens, so you should take this into consideration and learn more about shady information gathering practices. Avoid any unwanted government tracking or spying by going totally anonymous on the internet. 

You can choose a different location when you go online and access any material you want without particular content restrictions. You can easily enjoy internet connection without any risks of being hacked by using Private Internet Access VPN.

Control the information that can be accessed by government any other unwanted party and surf online without being spied on. Even if you are not involved in illegal activities or trust your selection of services, platforms, be suspicious for your own security and take precautionary measures by using the VPN service.

Backup files for the later use, in case of the malware attack

Computer users can suffer from data losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Ransomware can encrypt and hold files hostage, while unforeseen power cuts might cause a loss of important documents. If you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work. It is also equally important to update backups on a regular basis so that the newest information remains intact – you can set this process to be performed automatically.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware strikes out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the data restoration process.
