Registry cleaner programs are software programs that are built for the purpose of keeping a Windows registry working
in top condition. Prior to such programs being available, technicians would have to manually clean out registries trying to rid them of corruption and duplicate entries in addition to adding missing entries the registry needs to perform properly.
As we have discussed in other posts, cleaning out a Windows registry is time consuming and dificult. Also, if a mistake is made during the process, the computer could suffer a major performance setback. So, it is advised everyone, except the most experienced technicians, refrain from trying to repair a registry manually.
When a Windows registry does not perform properly, the computer the Windows operating system is installed on will start to behave irregularly and possibly even stop working altogether. The early telltale signs of a registry that is corrupt are computer slow downs, freezes and error messages. Sometimes the computer slowdowns are so pronounced it makes using the computer very difficult.
Registry cleaner programs or simply, registry cleaners can usually be downloaded for free and will scan your Windows registry to see if it has any problems. If it does not and the computer is not working properly, the computer owner can then be assured the problem with the PC lies elsewhere. In this case, perhaps the computer has a virus or spyware.
If the registry cleaners scan shows there is corruption present in the registry the computer user can be assured this is the problem that is causing the computer to slow down or crash. To get rid of the corruption, the cleaning function of the registry cleaner must be purchased. The price is very modest. These days, the cost of purchasing a registry cleaner for one years’ use is usually less than the price of one half a tank of gas.
For this small price, many computer problems will be alleviated. This is true, because if a Windows registry has corruption, not cleaning it will tend to build more corruption. When registry corruption builds more and more, problems are manifested as poor computer performance. If too much time goes by without cleaning this corruption, the computer performance may deteriorate to the point it will not boot up at all. Therefore, regular registry cleanings are highly recommended as a part of everone’s routine computer maintenance.
