Repair Windows Registry Problems in Three Simple Steps

Jul 22, 2008
There are few issues in life that cause more stress than technical problems (like computers). If you are forced to fix Windows registry problems, this article can assist you.

Registry repair is often the best solution when having slow, crashing or freezing computer problems, have challenges with the PC rebooting often, or if experiencing problems installing or uninstalling software programs. Often we first purchase and scan our system with anti virus software just to continue the performance problems in our computers.

Registry cleaning and repair is necessary on Windows based computers because the registry has must have files and user preferences. The Windows registry will become bloated and will slow your computer performance if not cleaned on a regular basis.

The following items usually pinpoint the need to repair Windows registry problems: Computer runs slowly, reboots are needed often, computer opens programs slow, the computer is slow to start up, it is difficult adding or removing programs, slow computer response times are evident, shut downs are not normal, or the Blue Screen of Death displays (blue screen with white letters).

Follow the steps below to repair Windows registry problems:

Step One: Develop a List of Symptoms

It is always good to have awareness of exactly what your computer is doing to know what the true repair needs are. This step is all about defining what is wrong with your computer now so that you will have a measure of how many problems are fixed after the final step of this article.

You can start with the list above, but also think of anything else you have noticed over time. Think of certain programs or processes that trigger issues. Are there only certain times that the problems occur? Do not spend a ton of time on this step, but make sure that your list is pretty solid.

Step Two: Utilize the Free Scanning Function of a Solid Registry Repair Software

Most of the best products that repair Windows Registry Problems have a free scanning option so that you can see if errors are detected. Choosing a product of this type is not difficult. There are a couple of key features that an effective product should have.

Some of the key features that registry software should contain include: simplicity of the product itself, automatic backup of files before the repair is conducted, custom file selection, a one year license (not one time use), optimization features in addition to just repair functions, and solid local or remote help files.

After locating software that matches the above checklist, do the deepest free scan offered to see what errors are found on your PC. You will have a choice of whether you want to move forward with repair (by purchasing the full version). If errors are found, you can move on to the next step. If no errors are found, it may still be a good idea to purchase the software so you can use it for ongoing scans throughout the year. I am a huge advocate of maintaining my computer each year with registry repair software, general virus scan software, and a solid antivirus software that address spyware, malware, and adware (including Trojans).

Step Three: Repair Windows Registry Problems

The same software that you used for the free scan can immediately do the repair once you invest in the repair function. Most of the good products also offer a multi-computer license at a discounted rate in case you have several computers in your home.

The repair portion of this process only takes seconds. Still, after purchasing the software, you will want to scan and repair as often as you can (at least once a week).

The time to repair Windows registry problems is maybe about 10 minutes total. Finish the process by restarting your computer.
