Necessary Steps to Choosing the Best Registry Fix

By: Daryl Moore

Is there a best registry fix? This is the most common question that arises when people are trying to determine which product to use to fix their slow and crashing computer problems (or a number of other registry symptoms).

If you are asking the same question, this article is for you.

It is frustrating and stressful to deal with computer problems. The good news is that you don't have to suffer for much longer. Deciding on a product to fix your registry doesn't need to be stressful.

You may be asking yourself a series of questions in advance of purchasing a registry cleaner: Am I choosing a good product? Is this product actually going to fix my computer? What features should I get for my money? Will I understand how to fix it once the software finds errors? How can I trust results from the software? Is the software making up errors to get my money?

The first goal is to make a determination is the registry is even your problem to start with. The following symptoms are common to registry problems: Slow and crashing computer, anti-virus and spyware software didn't fix the problems, the computer starts slow, rebooting is common, errors spell out a registry problem, you can't easily add or remove programs on your PC, you have a Blue Screen of Death (blue screen with writing), the response times on your computer are terrible, internet surfing is slow, it takes a while (if at all) to launch programs.

If you have multiple symptoms from the above list, it is a good idea to install and consistently run registry software.

Step One: Run a Free Scan

The best registry fix products will offer a free scan. Be sure to use the scan to determine that you indeed have errors before paying for the repair feature in the same software. A list of errors, by category, should be listed for you once the scan is done.

Step Two: If Errors are Detected, Purchase the Repair Utility

After the free scan is complete, if errors exist you will want to elect the option to pay for the repair feature. The scan takes longer than the repair, but obviously the repair is what you are after. The repair takes seconds.

Step Three: Restart and Test Your PC

After the repair is complete, it is always a good idea to shut down your computer and restart to ensure the changes are saved and applied. You can then run the same software to ensure that all errors were removed. If not, you can always run the scan and repair again as the best registry fix products have an unlimited use one year license.

What Qualities Should The Best Registry Fix Products Contain?

Solid Service and Tech Support

Most of the best software programs have great help files and you may never require a support staff member due to the simplicity of the product. Still, it is always good to send a test email to the company to see how quickly they respond back to you. See how timely the response is and how professional the response is. You will then know the nature of the company and how well they will treat you when you have questions.

Both Repair and Optimization Features

Though repair and cleaning are usually the only issues on purchaser's minds, the best software programs offer optimization features to supplement repair characteristics. Good software programs will have tools that will complete system defrag (to free hard drive space), remove Internet Explorer plug-ins that slow your internet, and that remove viruses and spyware from your computer. Look for additional tools beyond a normal registry repair.
