A good registry cleaner can rid your registry of redundant and unused files, but first let’s talk about what your registry is as well as how these programs actually work. Just like you store your personal documents into a file, your Windows stores all the information for your computer into your registry.
Everything concerning your system’s configuration are contained within your registry. It is crucial to how your computer operates. It holds your software programs and hardware settings. Your computer could not operate without your registry, and there are times when the registry becomes cluttered and needs to be cleaned. That’s when a good registry cleaner can be a great tool to have.
Dealing with many computers in the past I found that people who use registry cleaners usually do not find themselves having to handle as many issues as people who don’t use them. The first registry was created and introduced by Microsoft and added to Windows 95. Before we had a registry the computers would store all their files in a common challenging drive. This was not effective at all.
Microsoft saw the need to combine all that information into one space and one program which is the registry. It stores everything from program settings and data to operating information. Anytime you utilized any type of program you will have added values show up in your registry.
Cleaning Up The Registry – What makes the registry need cleaning? After some time of using your computer, and adding and deleting programs, things begin to clutter your registry. When you delete a program all the files are not necessarily gone from your registry. Now they are cluttering it up.
Your computer is a ‘reader’. The smoothest and fastest read of the alphabet is if the letters are in order like a,b,c,d,e,f,…..and so on, but when these letters are out of place and there are random letters just hanging out like a,f,f,e,i,m,i,w,….. it takes longer for the ‘reader’ to sort it out and read it.
A registry cleaner will scan the registry and take out the redundant files and put everything back into a good working order. Then your computer will not have to work so hard to read your files and will in turn speed up.
Most cleaners come with good backup programs so if anything goes wrong your files can be restored to the state they were in before you began the cleaning. You can find plenty of free registry cleaners online, but you want to make sure you have the best one for your computer. Go into forums and ask questions and visit review sites to see about good support and effective cleaners.
