Thats because it has nothing to do with security, it is a registry checker. Registry mechanic and other programs do the same thing, probably better.
considering it probably popped up via a java applet I wouldnt have trusted it in the first place,

In broad general terms, you should never download any "products" that come from popups. Ive seen millions of these things ranging from Windows Tuning tools to crapware catchers and its all too dangerous. Have a look at our links Sticky for some ver good and very safe products. Also, its worth trying Microsofts new tool, which although is still in BETA works very well.
