Does it take longer than usual now to open or run programs on your computer? If you answered yes to that question, you might want to sit down and read through this article to pinpoint its cause and what you can do to solve the problem.
Decreased computer performance is attributed to one major factor, its registry. Hence, the equation, (slow computer =corrupt registry).
The registry is considered the computer's huge database, for it keeps all information in its system, including hardware, program, desktop, operating system settings and preferences. In effect, it also stores trails of old programs that were improperly uninstalled or transported.
Parts and pieces of these programs downloaded or installed into your computer are being stored into the registry. Once, your computer starts Windows will find imprints of these files and will receive instructions to try and open them. You will not see it for it is being accessed in the background but as the system goes through these endless numbers of data it causes your computer to slow down.
In addition, a freshly installed Windows already has a vast amount of data crammed inside of it, you then proceed with stuffing it with your own set of programs, computer games, and internet downloaded music videos and other files. As a result, your computer tends to run slower than before given this enormous number of information its registry has to maintain.
One quick resolution is a registry clean-up tool to restore your computer to its original performance. But of course, if you're a natural computer genius and have no trouble going into your computer's registry to manually fix the settings then you can do it yourself. Still, given the amount of information you have stored and the additional entries made to your computer everyday will make it almost impossible to do so. It will take a number of months, that's if you do it non-stop.
A number of this software is available online, although choosing the best one for you can be challenging. However, internet surfing, joining blog spots or chat rooms might help you out in making the right choice. This tool is more efficient as it can automatically sift through files for you. In most cases, this will be less time consuming and bears better results.
Aside from getting your registry cleaned, there are some other things you can do to keep your computer healthy: Make sure that you have a good anti-virus program installed to combat viruses; defrag your hard drive as it rearranges the data grouping all similar files together; delete all unnecessary programs and applications; keep windows updated and install more memory to speed up your computer.
For sure, you are now more than ever eager to perform a registry clean-up. Before you do so, remember all the key points discussed or better yet talk to a computer expert to make sure that you get the process correct. Arm yourself with the right tool and get all cleaned up!
