Fix Corrupt Registry Files in Three Quick and Simple Steps

By: Desiree Marshelle

If your goal is to fix corrupt registry files and errors and you are not so sure about what process to use, this article will share the necessary steps.?

Registry problems can add up over time and create system instabilities leading to poor performance. It is vital to clean and repair the registry often to avoid such problems. Some of the symptoms include: slow running computer, computer freezes, crashing computer, system delays, problems adding or removing software programs, slow start up, and even the dreaded blue screen of death (blue screen with white text).?

If you have attempted to improve computer performance through the use of typical virus software and it did not fix the problem, the chances are good that you need to fix corrupt registry files. The following steps will assist you in this goal.?

Step One: Get It All on Paper?

The cure starts with awareness. Use the referenced symptoms above to start your list. Take time to jot down all of the problems that have surfaced with your computer. The list will bring attention to problem areas so that you can measure which problems were corrected by this process. Some of the others may require a spyware and adware remover.?

The goal is to get down as much detail as you can for each problem. Focus on what programs are open while it happens, when it happens (during start up or while on the net), with certain users, and what are the actual symptoms.?

You can use this list later for pre and post repair comparison.?

Step Two: Scan for Errors?

This step requires the user to choose software for a free registry scan. Though this may seem like a difficult task, there are several quality registry repair products that offer free scans and that have vital features that are needed in case errors are found.?

When choosing from the best registry cleaner products, there are a couple key qualities to search for in such products. Obviously, the first is a free deep scan feature. This is commonplace to the top registry software programs.?

Another feature that is a must have is an automatic file backup system. If you have to do the backup yourself, time waste is involved. You want to have the peace of mind knowing that the software will do this for you so you can have a way to revert back to a prior state if you do not like the changes.?

A few other features that are good to have include: ease of use of user window, customized file repair options, descriptions of all features and problems detected (including file names), and some optimization features included for defrag and Internet Explorer.?

Once you choose a top registry repair utility, choose the deepest scan option available (after downloading the free scan software). After a couple of minutes you will see a scan results page so that you can fix corrupt registry files that are detailed.?

Step Three: Fix the Computer?

You have already completed the most difficult parts of the process (believe it or not). The final step is to simply invest in the full version of the software that has the repair function. This can be done with the same software used for the free scan. Simply follow the prompts offered and choose the number of computers you would like to license. The license will be for a year of unlimited use (in quality products). It is good to have a registry maintenance plan anyway, so a one year license works well.?

The repair itself is rather uneventful. It takes about 30 seconds maximum and is the fastest part of the entire process. After you fix corrupt registry files, restart your computer so you can see the results and compare against your initial list of problems.
