Is XP Medic useful?

Reader Question:
“Hi Wally, Should I use xp medic or not?”
- Scott G., United Kingdom

Before addressing any computer issue, I always recommend scanning and repairing any underlying problems affecting your PC health and performance:

  • Step 1 : Download PC Repair & Optimizer Tool (WinThruster for Win 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP and 2000 – Microsoft Gold Certified).
  • Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows registry issues that could be causing PC problems.
  • Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.

Setting up weekly (or daily) automatic scans will help prevent system problems and keep your PC running fast and trouble-free.

Wally’s Answer: XP medic is a registry cleaning software that claims to fix your registry. It is available as a paid software. Personally, I have not bought it but people who have say that they did not get the product code of xp medic for some reason.

As the name implies, XP medic was made for Windows XP. It is a tool designed to troubleshoot Windows XP. It scans the operating system, looking for bugs, errors, and other problems that cause the computer to slow down or crash.

Registry Cleaners

Your computer may be your one your your primary sources of entertainment, communication, study, or work. For some people it is all of the above. So, it becomes an important task to keep the computer running smoothly. Registry cleaning software is designed to do just that. But since there are many registry cleaners out there it can  be difficult to make a rational choice sometimes. XP Medic promises to offer various services of standard registry cleaners to its users. Although there are many useful registry cleaning tools out there, XP Medic seems to fall short of its promises.


PC users expect the registry cleaning program to run quietly and fix system errors efficiently. XP Medic claims to be designed with the Windows XP operating system in mind, and it is supposed to be quick. It is advertised as being able to speed-up the system, optimize the RAM, the CPU, and maximize online performance wile providing an easy to use interface.

A good registry cleaning solution offers the user to scan the computer for free, show the results of the scan, and fix and problems that it finds. It should let the user try the software. If it is a trial software then it should at least offer to fix some problems so that the user can get an idea of how well the program works.


XP Medic offers a free system scan but does not fix any problems for free. After completing the scan, the user is required to buy the software before it fixes anything.

Many people who have bought XP Medic say that they did not get the product code. XP Medic may be a scam so it is better to stay clear of it.

Reliable and tested registry cleaners such as WinThruster offer a free scan and fix some problems for Free. It is safe, fast, simple, and easy to use.

I always recommend to my readers to regularly use a trusted registry cleaner and optimizer such as WinThruster or CCleaner. Many problems that you encounter can be attributed to a corrupt and bloated registry.
