One of the important Reg Organizer features is the Age System, which helps you
keep track of new programs and records appearing in the system Registry.
It tracks down new records (e.g. new programs, new items in the Uninstall
tab, new startup items, new registered file extensions, and so on).
When Reg Organizer works in the Manual Registry Cleanup mode,
you can see in all tabs (Uninstall, Software, Startup Applications, etc.)
the Age column that says whether the corresponding item is New or Old. You can
specify the criteria that Reg Organizer will use to judge whether the record is
new or old in the Manual Registry Cleanup category of the Settings
window. The Age System settings are described below:
Mark as old
- Automatically - all the newly added records are marked as new. Reg
Organizer automatically marks them as old when one of the criteria listed
below is met. For example, it can mark the records as old after some days
or after you view them for the first time.
- Manually - all the newly added records are marked as new. Reg Organizer
does not mark the records as old automatically, allowing you to do
this later by yourself. You can mark a record as old (or, on the contrary,
as new) by selecting the Age -> Mark Selected Item(s) as New/Old
item in the context menu. Please note that you need to tick off the records
prior to changing their status.

- Mark any viewed record as old - a record is marked as old after you
view it at least once. Assume that you have installed a new program on your
computer and then run Reg Organizer. The program will be displayed as new
in the Software tab. The next time you run Reg Organizer and open the
Software tab, the program will be displayed as old (and it will remain
marked as old, until you change its status manually or uninstall and then
- Mark the record as old after N day(s) since it was first time viewed in
Reg Organizer - if you choose to automatically mark records this way,
Reg Organizer will mark them as old only after the user-defined number of
days (2 by default). This working mode is more convenient. You can change
the number of days, depending on how often you install new programs on your
Sometimes you may need to change the records status manually. Please choose
the appropriate option as described above.
