Speed Up A Slow Computer With A Registry Cleaner

The gradual slowdown in performance speed is a common problem that Windows based computers tend to have. The main culprit in this “aging" is the clutter that tends to build up over time as Windows is used dynamically (programs added and removed, settings changed, etc. )

It's puzzling since Windows is supposed to be used “dynamically, " and yet this is what seems to cause the most problems.

One big area that the buildup of temporary and obsolete files and folders is the Windows registry. This can cause Windows to bog down as it tries to make sense of these entries.

What Is The Registry?

The Windows registry is a filing system where Windows stores all the preference and settings files for software and hardware drivers. Every time you install a new program, new registry entries are created.

Technically when you uninstall a program or driver all the registry entries should be removed, but this isn't always the case. Usually there are quite a few files and folders left behind in an orphaned state. This is the main cause of registry clutter. Another cause is the buildup of temporary files that aren't removed.

How To Clean Up The Registry

Fortunately it's very easy to clean up the registry on your PC. All you need to do is get your hands on a good, high-quality registry-repair software program. These programs will scan your computer and in seconds report all the obsolete, broken, and excess files. You can then delete them all with the click of a button.

Cleaning up the registry will get rid of all the junk that clogs up your machine and causes Windows to get bogged down while trying to make sense of all those invalid entries.
