Windows registry repair software programs are widely available today. Most registry repair programs or registry cleaners can be downloaded over the Internet. In fact, many of these can be downloaded for free. While it is true the free version only scans the registry without actually fixing bad registry entries or replacing missing entries, it is still valuable to use this free scan. This is because scanning the registry will tell you if you have many incidents of inaccurate or missing files in the registry. Then, after finding out this information you will know if your computer’s operating system is in need of a registry repair.
Why would you want to find out if your computer’s registry had bad and missing files? Bad and/or missing registry files are also known as registry corruption. More than any other computer problem, registry corruption will cause a computer to lose some or all of its speed. Actualy, registry corruption will sometimes cause a PC to become frustratingly slow!
In other words, if you have a computer that is operating at an inordinately slow speed, chances are the PC’s registry has corruption built up inside of it. In a case like this it would be very beneficial to get a free registry scan so you could see if indeed your computer has slowed down due to registry corruption. If the scan were to turn up no, or very few incidents of corruption, you would know your computer’s slow down was not being caused by corrupted files in the registry.
If however, the free scan turned up a lot of registry corruption, perhaps several hundred incidents, you would be quite sure cleaning the registry would be the medicine your PC needed to get it back up and running at full speed again.
At this point; after the registry scan turned up a substantial amount of corruption, the best move would be to pay for the licence to repair your corrupted registry. Don’t worry about the logistics of doing this because after running the Windows registry repair program’s free scan, the scanner would realize it had found incidents of corruption and it would pop-up a message letting you know how to go about purchasing the licence to clean the registry of all types of corruption.
Usually, purchasing the licence gives you an unlimited amount of times you can run the registry repair function for a year. The price for this one-year registry cleaning licence is typically $39.00, though this varies from brand to brand.
Also, it is important to note registry corruption does not only cause computers to slow down, but many times it causes computer error pop-up messages, freezes and complete crashes! These things can happen along with the computer slowing down or as isolated incidents. The bottom line is, it is a good move to keep your Windows registry clean
