By: D Fraser

Are you struggling with a sluggish PC? Errors popping up all the time, programs not starting, or worse the blue screen of death? It's possible that you're suffering from registry errors on your PC and you don't even realize it. This article will show you how you can improve the performance of your computer using registry cleaning software. More specifically, we'll talk about why your registry gets messy, what registry software does to improve it, and what type of results you should expect.

Why do I need Registry Cleaning Software?

Your registry files hold a vast amount of information about your computer, its software, and hardware. Everything from file locations, device driver information, and even desktop shortcuts have information in the registry. Over time this area of your computer can become bogged down with old information. Information about programs that have since been un-installed or removed. This extra information can cause windows to hang or freeze when it goes searching for valid info it needs, only to get slowed down and thrown off track due to old files and errors.

The good news is that registry cleaning software was designed specifically to heal troubles like this. You don't need to be a computer guru, and in as little as a half hour you can have a shiny clean registry performing better then ever.

How does Registry Repair Software fix my registry?

The registry cleaning process isn't as technical as you might think. The first step is an initial scan performed by the software looking for items like we described in the previous section. These might be old deleted files, invalid registry keys, or empty lines in your registry. After the complete scan has is done the software then moves onto the repair process.

You have two options to repair the troubles that the software found during it's scan. One, you can have the registry cleaning software make the corrections automatically for you. Many first time users select this as their repair method, how ever it can cause more trouble then good. The second alternative to repair the items found during the scan is to manually review each item before it's repaired. While this can take a bit more time, it will ensure that valid registry entries are not deleted during the cleaning process.

What sort of results can I expect from a clean registry

This of course is one part of the equation that I cannot predict for every user. Some people will experience drastic differences in their PC start up speed, speed to open programs, and lack of freezing or crashing. Of course the extent to which you notice any changes will depend greatly on the degree of problems you were experiencing before you ran the software.

To ensure you get maximum performance out of your PC all the time it's wroth while using any scheduling features that might exist in the software. Scheduling registry cleaning software to automatically check for new errors every few weeks will ensure your computer is in tip top shape.
