- No automatic restore function, confusing
It's free and useful, but Registry cleaners aren't exactly expensive, and RegSeeker is definitely not for beginners.
RegSeeker is free, and alongside a Registry cleaner it has a handful of other Registry-focused utilities. The tools include a keyword finder; a utility to examine installed application Registry entries, assorted histories (for instance, Internet Explorer and Start-menu items), and Startup entries; and a tool to tweak about 24 XP settings.
This Registry cleaner is confusing because its interface sports a strangely labelled 'OK!' button that doesn't really give you a sense of what the program will do next. On the same screen, RegSeeker presents a dangerous option: Auto Clean, which we encourage you to avoid. The screen provides little help or guidance, though RegSeeker warns that to back up the Registry, you must make sure to check the 'Backup before deletion' option, another oddly labelled feature.
RegSeeker has no automatic restore function, either; you'll need to find the saved .reg file yourself and click on it to restore your Registry.
On our production PC, RegSeeker picked up 1108 problems. Unfortunately, the program offered no assistance in determining which of the errors needed deleting; it also didn't provide categories, such as invalid path or shared DLL, to help us decide whether items were safe to delete. RegSeeker isn't for novices. It supports Windows 2000, XP, and Vista.

GGG Evaluation Team
First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
