Removal instructions for Registry Life

Recommended Posts

What is Registry Life?

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Registry Life is a registry cleaner. Many of these so-called "registry cleaners" use intentional false positives to convince users that their systems have problems. Then they try to sell you their software, claiming it will remove these problems.
More information can be found on our Malwarebytes Labs blog.

How do I know if I am infected with Registry Life?

This is how the main screen of the registry cleaning application looks:

You will find these icons in your taskbar and on your desktop:

And see these warnings during install:

and this type of screens during operations:

How did Registry Life get on my computer?

These so-called registry cleaners use different methods of getting installed. This particular one was downloaded from their website.

How do I remove Registry Life?

Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this potentially unwanted application.

  • Please download Malwarebytes for Windows to your desktop.
  • Double-click MBSetup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • When your Malwarebytes for Windows installation completes, the program opens to the Welcome to Malwarebytes screen.
  • Click on the Get started button.
  • Click Scan to start a Threat Scan.
  • When the scan is finished click Quarantine to remove the found threats.
  • Reboot the system if prompted to complete the removal process.

Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of Registry Life?

  • No, Malwarebytes removes Registry Life completely.

How would the full version of Malwarebytes help protect me?

We hope our application and this guide have helped you eradicate this registry cleaner.

As you can see below the full version of Malwarebytes would have protected you against the Registry Life installer. It would have warned you before the application could install itself, giving you a chance to stop it before it became too late.
