Registry repair and Cleaning
If you own a Windows PC, you'll be used to performing some basic maintenance tasks to keep it running smoothly and prevent problems with applications or files. Most of us regularly update our virus definitions, empty the Recycle Bin and so on.
When it comes to PC maintenance, a Registry Cleaner should also be part of your toolkit. Its purpose is to keep your Windows Registry tidy, efficient and help applications to run without a hitch.
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.
Malicious applications (malware) can also cause Registry problems. Even when the software has been removed, the remnants of that application may remain - causing error messages and slowdowns. Cleaning the Registry can help to remove all this left over data.
Many applications save data in the Registry, this may include personal information, such as your email address or passwords. After removing the application, some of this data may remain - creating a security risk! Cleaning the Registry will remove this left over personal data and help prevent data theft should someone get access to your computer.
Technically, you can edit the Windows Registry 'by hand'. 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 Cleaners exist - To do the job for you!
Once your Registry has been cleaned up, you will likely notice a performance boost and any error messages you saw whilst using your computer previously will be gone.
Registry Cleaner will remove entries for non-existent applications, and it'll also fix invalid or corrupted entries i.e. it will repair your registry. You'll probably find your computer starts much more quickly too!
