Over time you would have noticed PC problems starting to appear on your PC. This is a normal occurance with a PC and the more you use it, the slower the speed and performance will become leading to more problems. It is a vicious circle and the general point of reference to these common computer problems is the Windows registry.

Computer problems such as startup issues, performance problems, freezing screen, blue screen or those annoying error messages can all be caused by the registry so lets explain what the Windows registry does.

It is a huge database at the heart of your computer’s system that stores all of the hardware and software configuration settings, the user settings and the system’s security and policy settings. Everytime an application is launched by the user, the Windows registry is conferred to in order to initiate the task. Without the registry your PC would not function. Over time the registry grows due to the amount of operations that are asked of it and because of this errors begin to occur within it. Unwanted and invalid entries get left within the system registry causing dead readings, and these are the issues that cause your common computer problems to occur.

For example, deleting a program instead of uninstalling it leaves many traces of the program within the Windows registry. This is a prime case of leaving invalid entries within the registry.

To fix Windows registry errors you can choose to download a top registry cleaner from the net. This is by far the easiest and safest manner in which to fix your registry. Windows registry cleaners scan your computer system registry for the unwanted and obsolete entries. With a few clicks of your mouse you can resolve the issues within the registry very simply, which in turn gives way to a more optimized and higher performing PC.

A decent windows registry repair tool will backup your existing registry before it starts to repair it. In case anything should malfunction during the cleaning process then the backup copy can be re-instated without causing any major problems with your system. This of course is an absolute necessity and without a backup file you may never be able to recover your data.

The registry repair tool will also defragment your registry. This puts the entries within your database in the most readable and obtainable order. Consider putting dozens of files into a filing cabinet without some sort of structure and then days later trying to find where you put them. It would take a long time. Categorizing your files gives you an easy filing system, much the same as defragmanting your registry.

There are many Windows registry repair tools to fix your registry problems and unless you are a very competent computer engineer then I do not advise you to try and manually repair the registry yourself. A reputable registry cleaner is the safest and most reliable way to restore your computer’s performance.
