Fix Corrupt Registry the Easy Way

Apr 16, 2008
Computer speed has always been a major concern with PC owners, and even more so with new technology constantly demanding more out of people's computers. If you don't regularly clean and fix your registry, your computer will start to become bogged down and become very slow. Eventually, it may slow down to a halt!

This isn't an ideal situation because people use computers for everything, and if your computer starts to get really slow when working on an important project, it can be frustrating. One reason cleaning the registry is so important is because a corrupt registry increases the stress on the hard drive because it must look through several possible operations just to find the right one it needs to executing.

Free registry cleaners

There are several programs you can buy and download that can fix your registry. Many people look for free registry-fixing programs in a quest to save money. However, free registry scanners aren't really free. They will repair some problems and then they will ask if you want to continue to repair your registry.

If you say yes, the program will ask for your credit card number. In short, free ones end up being more expensive than regular repair programs that are more upfront about not being free. All registry cleaners will scan for free and then need to be bought before they will actually do a repair to your registry. However, this is normal operating procedure.

Supercharge your computer with an optimizer

When searching for a good registry-fixing program, it's important to know what features to look for. One of the most important features you should look for is one that will also optimize your registry. This is important because an optimizer will give your computer even more speed than a regular registry repair program will.

Also, you should make sure the cleaner/optimizer is a reputable one. The best way to find out this information is by recommendation. Advertisements are one thing, but if someone has actually used it and is able tell you how it worked, it would be a big plus!
Another little sidebar is this fact.

There are a lot of registry programs that were good at one time but now, they are yesterday's news. So, when you are getting recommendations, make sure someone isn't telling you about one they used a few years ago, as this one may no longer be a top tier cleaner. Of course, if you are getting a cleaner/optimizer, you know you'll be getting the latest thing.

We all love our computers, and hate them when they don't act the way we want them to. One of the best ways to keep your computer in tip-top shape is to regularly scan the registry for errors and then let the program repair any it may find.

Remember, a computer should be scanned for viruses and spyware, as well. However, once removed these things leave false entries in the registry. So, to finish the job, use a good registry repair program and if it includes an optimizer, your computer will be back up to speed and then some!
