Registery repair using CCleaner
What Is a Registry repairer?
Think of the Registry as a database. On every Windows PC, the Registry stores preferences and settings for applications and the Windows operating system itself.
Windows does a good job of keeping the registry up-to-date, but doesn't tidy up after itself very well. Over time, as you install and uninstall applications, the registry can become littered with old entries. These can cause error messages and slow the computer down. If you want to ensure that your PC functions correctly, and remains fast, you'll need to clean it up.
Can I edit the Registry myself?
Technically, you can edit the Windows Registry. But there are two key reasons not to:
- It's really easy to change the wrong setting
- If you make a mistake, the consequences might be quite severe. (For example, your PC might refuse to start)
That's why Registry repairers exist - To do the job for you!
