Free Registry Cleaners. Are They Worth The Risk For Fixing Your System Registry?

November 06, 2011 By: lilybird Category: Software

The Windows system registry is a part of your PC that is not to be taken lightly. It is the most important component for your system and is the nerve centre for all the information and data that your operating system needs. The registry is a massive informational database that continually logs everything that is undertaken on your system. This can be anything from writing a new notepad file and saving it, to logging on to an online music store and downloading a music file.

Of course these are actions carried out by the user but the operating system also carries out operations all the time unbeknown by the user. Hardware settings for the drivers and ports used are needed to let your PC know where and how to communicate with your hardware devices such as your printer, keyboard or modem. Software settings are also stored in the registry and are used by the operating system to acquire and gain access to the application when asked to by the user. Thousands of registry entries hold information about system configuration and user settings and as time goes by the system registry grows.

The more information logged, the larger the registry becomes and this is how computer registry errors occur. The registry starts to become fragmented with missing and corrupt entries from where data is introduced and removed. In order to rectify these issues then a registry cleaner is needed and this takes us back to the titled question – free registry cleaners or not?

Free registry cleaners simply and will only clean your registry but they will not defragment it. Fragmentation is the continual modification of the same registry entry and after time will make this entry larger and larger. It will come to a point where it reaches a size limit implemented by Windows. Subsequently any more modifications will cease to occur therefore creating registry problems.

‘Free’ also means exempt and this is where the product does not contain all that is required. You will need technical support and regular software updates. There is not anything of any great worth or value that is free, so considering that we are discussing your computer here then I believe that cutting corners is not a cost effective way in which to rectify your registry issues. Your system registry can so easily be made inoperable by deleting the wrong entries. Computer engineers do not come cheap and investing in a top registry cleaner is a small price to pay.

A reputable registry cleaner will clean, defragment and optimize your PC by revitalising it back to peak performance. They are tens of dozens of registry cleaners available online so research well and find one that best suits your needs.
