Registry Cleaning - How It Can Make Your Computer Run Faster

By Mark Walters

You, like every other computer owner, want your computer to run as fast as it possibly can. I will tell you how to do that in a second. First though, lets take a look at the main reason why Windows based PCs become slower, and start crashing and freezing, over time.

One of the main causes for slow computer performance and decreased PC speed is what is called the registry, which is similar to a database and is an integral part of every Windows PC. Your computer programs are frequently accessing your computer's registry, though this is done in the background, without you being made aware of it.

Each time a program is installed or run, the registry is either added to or modified. Whilst the registry is designed for this happen to it, errors, in terms of faulty entries and the overwriting of necessary entries, begin to accumulate.

As errors in the registry accumulate, your computer takes longer to search through it in order to find the information that it needs. When it comes across a faulty entry, or is looking for one that has been overwritten, this causes it to freeze up or crash.

Fortunately, there is a solution to this problem, and it does not involve you having to buy a new computer, or even any new hardware at all. All that you need to do is find the errors in your registry, and then fix them.

However, since the registry consists of many thousands of entries it is literally impossible to fix this problem by hand. Therefore, what you need is some special software, which is called a registry cleaner.

A registry cleaner is an essential tool which will do an excellent job of scanning your registry for the errors that it contains. When it detects them it will fix and repair them. The registry cleaner will also check your system files and can alert you if it detects a problem.

Using a registry cleaner to make your PC faster is normally straight forward and does not need any special knowledge of your PC or the registry internals. It will scan and fix those problems automatically, simply by clicking a button on the screen.

Once the registry scan has been started, you can just leave it to run, and when you come back to it you will find a report awaiting you that shows what errors were found and what action was taken to repair them. You will also be given some tips and advice on how to prevent those errors from occurring again.

So, there you have it, if you want a faster, more efficient, computer, just use a good registry cleaner on a regular basis. - 30430
