Registry Cleaning

By Mary Landry

If you’re not certain what registry cleaning is, why it’s vital and how to do it, this article is definitely for you. Here we will discuss the basics of registry cleaning. This is by no means a comprehensive article, and you should definitely research the topic but this article will provide you with the necessary background to understanding Windows registry cleaning.

Your PC requires instructions to open each program you have on it. All direction files are maintained in a database called the Windows registry (or just registry for short). Since the registry is very important, files are not removed or erased from it, even when a program is uninstalled from the computer. As time goes by, the registry easily gets cluttered and it takes longer for the Windows system to locate files on it. This is when you may notice your computer slowing down or freezing. To make matters worse, if you’ve ever had a virus attack on your computer, chances are that traces of these files are still present in the registry. This might be the cause of numerous runtime errors.

It follows then, that a clean, organized registry means a much better working PC. But you shouldn’t clean the registry manually (unless you are an IT expert). Cleaning the registry can be a complicated and tricky task to perform. Any mistake can be detrimental to your computer.

A much better solution is to clean the registry with a class of programs known registry cleaners. Cleaners are designed to scan and remove errors within the registry with minimum user intervention. There are many options to choose from when it comes to getting a registry cleaner.

First, you must find out whether you would much rather get a registry cleaner or make use of freeware. Be aware that freeware is generally outdated and full of bugs, so it is only recommended to be used as a diagnostic scan and not for the actual cleaning.

If you choose to purchase a cleaner, consider the following: Your program of choice should be easy to use, adequate for your windows version and should contain an auto-backup capability prior to each cleaning. This will let you restore your PC to a working condition in case a mistake happens.

Each time you scan and clean your registry accurately it will keep your computer working at it’s top function. To get your computer looked at by the Most sophisticated Registry Cleaner Software available for FREE Click Here
