When your computer and its performance begin to slow down, it can be quite frustrating. On top of the slower performance, your PC might also exhibit symptoms like frequent error messages, slow booting up times and it may crash completely a lot of the time. All of these things can make using your computer a very frustrating experience, especially when you consider how wonderfully it ran back when it was brand new. What happened?
Every PC has what is known as a registry; or, more specifically, a Windows registry. This registry contains very important files which are needed by your PC's operating system in order to keep it running at optimal levels. As time passes, and you download and install many various programs, these registry files can become compromised or broken. Sometimes you inadvertently download malicious content like spyware and adware, which can really have a bad effect on your computer's registry.
How do you clean your computer's registry? While it is possible to go into these files yourself and examine them, it is not recommended. The files in your computer's registry are far too important and deleting or moving even one of them in the incorrect way can really mess up your PC. It can be difficult for the average user to figure out which files or which, anyway. And it can be nearly impossible to know how to repair or clean them.
The best advice is for you to find a registry cleaning program on the Internet. I personally recommend Registry Easy, which as its name suggests is very simple to use. It will clean your registry, fix those PC errors and make your computer much faster.
If you do a little bit of research, you will quickly see that there are many of these programs available. Try checking out various reviews around the Internet on how well each of the various programs can clean your computer's registry. Maybe try out free trials of a few of these programs in order to make a more informed decision.
Once you have pinpointed the precise program you like, download and install it. With most of these programs, this is a very fast and simple process. It should not take very long to set one of the registry cleaning programs up, and you will be able to clean your PC's registry right away.
Running a registry cleaning program is quite simple, too. Generally, it does everything automatically, from finding the errors and cleaning or repairing them. You can set many of them up to run automatically. This is a good idea because you will want to have your computer's registry cleaned on a regular basis.
