What is Windows Registry Repair and is it Needed?

Mar 28, 2008
Are you receiving Windows registry errors, encountering slow computer problems, need computer crash help, or are having trouble with constant freezes?

If virus scan, spyware, malware, and adware software did not fix the problems Windows registry repair could be one of your only remaining options.

What is the Windows registry system?

Microsoft Windows has one central location (registry) where files are kept including those containing the settings and options for the operating system, software, hardware, and other functions that allow our computer systems to run smoothly if properly maintained. If registry repair and scans are not conducted, over time corrupt files can create a nightmare of symptoms for users.

Registry errors are created from software installs and de-installs, creating new users (due to preference keys), when chat programs are used, and when software is used to open new files. This can create a large registry size which requires compression. Each of these causes requires the need for registry repair through a complete registry scan on an ongoing basis.

Without conducting consistent registry scans and repairs, you will likely encounter a series of errors and performance issues over time.

Symptoms of registry problems can include: Speed of PC is extremely slow, consistent freezes, unexpected crashes, and slow performance, start up (boot) process is not smooth and shut downs are abnormal, rebooting the computer is becoming a common practice, specific error messages are pinpointing a Windows registry problem, inability to properly add and remove software on computer, Blue Screen of Death - BSOD, longer computer response times, slower browsing on internet, software takes longer to start/launch, and anti-virus and anti-spyware removal software cannot detect or fix the problem.

Is it a Good Idea to Do a Registry Repair?

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms you may want to immediately consider a registry repair to save yourself time and remove frustration from your life. This was a difficult lesson for me. I was having constant crashes and could not keep my PC on long enough to save my work, causing me to come extremely stressed out and looking for immediate solutions. I first ran my McAfee online version of virus and spyware scans to fix the problems. To my surprise, none of the scans worked.

After a bit of research, I found the symptoms to be tied to the need for a registry cleaning and repair. After a swift registry fix through a downloaded registry fixer software, my computer was almost as good as new.

This was a difficult lesson in terms of time and effort spent as well as the financial setback that came with purchasing multiple programs.

Manual registry repair is not advised because in the process of trying to fix a corrupt registry, you could cause deeper problems. Plus, there are many good tools available to do a cheap, efficient, and complete registry repair without taking the risk of hurting your operating system on your PC.

You will quickly notice that I am in favor of taking the fastest and easiest way possible to fix registry errors. This is done through a simple process of determining if you even have legitimate registry errors in the first place. This can be done through running a free registry repair software scan. After determining whether or not you have errors, then you can pay for the repair feature in the software used to do the free scan. When you purchase the registry repair software, any good program will offer a one year license so you can maintain it throughout the year.

Once you run the free scan and then purchase the repair feature of the software (if errors are found), your computer performance can be back up to speed with 10-15 minutes or less. Make sure to restart your computer to allow the changes to take place.
