Registry cleaners improve PC performance

Registry cleaners are flooding the internet these days as software makers realize the surging demand.

Why has demand surged for registry cleaners?

Because people are realizing that optimizing their registry can lean to dramatic improvements in internet speed and opening files. People realize that the economy is bad and don't want to buy a new computer right now. Making their old one run faster is a great option.

What is the registry, and how does it affect computer speed?

The registry is like the heart of Windows. It is relied on for programs to function properly, and even for Windows to boot. If your registry is amuck, you can bet that you'll be experiencing plenty of errors. But errors aren't the only thing. Once the registry gets too bloated, you can be sure to expect a big slowdown in PC performance.

Why would I need to clean my registry?

Because when you install a program, it deposits keys in your registry (information required for the program to run). The problem is, these keys are not removed automatically when you uninstall the program so over time, they accumulate.

If you have never cleaned your registry, then it will contain keys for every program you've ever installed since purchasing your PC.

How do I clean my registry?

Luckily, cleaning your registry isn't a difficult task thanks to automated software that does it all for you.

WARNING: Do not attempt to alter your registry yourself unless you are experienced with doing so. Deleting even one key can cause your operating system serious problems if it is the wrong one.

Which registry cleaning software is best?

That is largely a matter of opinion. There are certainly many out there, all claiming to clean your PC and free it from errors. In my personal experience, WinZip registry optimizer has been a good one. It's quick and easy to use.

In only a few minutes you can clean your system registry and begin noticing improvements immediately. Some of the biggest improvements you may notice include:

1. Faster internet speeds
2. Faster start up and boot down.
3. Programs run more smoothly.
4. Videos and audio are not choppy when being played.
5. Files such as folders and internet browser open much faster.

I guess it all comes down to personal taste, but I have had excellent results by cleaning my registry every month. What's the harm in trying? It may be just the thing your old PC needs to run like new again.

Give Max Utilities a try. It's the best one I've used of the hundreds on the market.
