PC DOC PRO-Quick Guide to Registry Cleaners

PC DOC PRO- Registry Cleaner Basics-:

It's no exaggeration to say that, without a properly functioning Windows registry, your PC's Windows operating system would be worthless. The Windows registry is the repository of information regarding all the software applications, hardware devices, user preferences, and system configurations on your PC's hard drive. The longer you use your computer, the more data during its registry as you add new hardware and software to what was factory-installed.

With each change you may to the contents of your hard drive, whether you add, remove, or simply modify its contents, there are corresponding changes to your Windows registry. Eventually, obsolete data begins to clog the registry. Because your Windows operating system has to scan the registry for necessary data each time you ask it to perform a task, searching through obsolete data can dramatically slow its response time.

Your OS might even mistake obsolete file fragments for the data it needs, causing your PC to freeze or even crash. If you're having system problems with your PC, the odds are that they are being caused by registry errors.

If you're the kind of PC user who loves to install and uninstall programs, especially free software or games, you can probably benefit from getting a good registry cleaner and running its regularly to scrub all those unnecessary file fragments from your system. You'll have no problem finding a registry cleaner, because there are plenty of software manufacturers who make them. While all of them perform the same basic function, however, you should get one which has specific features.

Find a registry cleaner with a backup capability. Your Windows registry is the heart and soul of your PC. It contains countless files without which your PC simply will not run, and making changes to those files could leave you with no computer at all. So you need a registry cleaner which can make a backup copy of your existing registry before it goes to work repairing it. Having a backup copy will ensure that, in the unlikely event that your registry cleaner removes essential data, you'll be able to restore your registry and your PC function.

If you choose a free registry cleaner, however, it might not have backup capability. In fact case, you'll have to create your own backup. Go to your Start menu, click on Run, and type “Regedit.” Then select File, Export, enter a name for your backup file (be sure to give it a .reg extension) and a destination, which be a removable floppy disk or CD.

Once you have your registry backed up, you can clean it. While earlier versions of Windows included factory-installed registry cleaners, all Windows operating systems since Windows 98 require that you purchase or download a free registry cleaner.PC DOC PRO provides a quick guide to registry cleaners.

Finally, if you suspect that the problems with your registry are the result of its being infected with spyware, adware, a virus or Trojan, you have the option of restoring it to a configuration it had been for the infection occurred. Go to your Start menu, click on All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore. Select a date on the calendar when you recall that your PC was operating correctly. Your PC will automatically restore its registry configuration to that point.

While keeping your PC free of malware is essential, using a registry cleaner to remove any changes for which your own actions were responsible is also essential. Doing so is the only way stay ahead of the accumulated junk which will interfere with your PC's performance!
