Three Steps to Quick and Easy XP Registry Repair

Mar 29, 2008
XP registry repair may be necessary if you are experiencing slow computer problems, your computer opens programs slow, if you are having trouble adding and removing software, or if you are attempting to stop computer crashes. The best thing to do is just repair the issue and move on.

Step One: List all Errors and Problems Currently Detected

You may be already aware that your registry is having problems due to error messages displayed, or possibly because of the symptoms you are noticing.

Start by writing down each symptom that you are experiencing with your PC. This will provide a baseline measurement of performance pre and post repair. The list will include symptoms detected on the computer and then errors actually displayed on your monitor like failed start ups and shut downs or DLL errors.

Some of the symptoms showing a possible need for XP registry repair include:

Computer starts slow or sometimes fails to start at all, anti virus and spyware programs did not fix the problems, PC freezes, crashes, or has turtle-like performance, or Specific error messages pinpoint that registry problems exist.

Step Two: Try a Free Software Scan to Make Sure that Problems are Registry Related

There several effective XP compatible products that offer free scans. This will allow you to ensure legitimate errors before investing in the full version of the software. Before doing the free registry scan, you can attempt a system defrag if you are only experiencing slow PC performance. This can be done by going to your Start Menu, then All Programs, then System Tools, and finally Disk Defragmenter. If the defrag does not fix the issue, move onto to the free scan mentioned. See the links at the bottom of the article for some of the best software programs for this task.

If you try the free scan, any errors will be detailed for you. A huge part of the solution is in identifying the problems.

Step Three: Download the Full Version Software if XP Registry Repair is Needed

You can simply purchase the same software that you utilized for the free scan (which is just the repair feature in the same software). A good software program will repair the registry and will optimize your computer at the same time.

Registry software will save you lots of money that would be spent with computer techs or from having to purchase a new computer. The nice part is that your PC will be operating like new again within 10 minutes or so.

Be sure to restart your computer after scanning and repairing the registry in order for the changes to take place. You should see a huge difference in your computer's performance instantly.
