To Speed Up Performance of Your PC, Install Registry Repair For Windows

It’s a common thing nowadays to have a computer, either at home, or at work, or simultaneously, at both the places. A computer is a complex machine which handles a number of complex tasks, so once you own a computer, special attention is required towards the proper maintenance and upkeep of this complex machine which helps you in multiple ways in your day to day life. This maintenance does not involve rocket science, but can be done if you keep in mind a few simple things. The main thing involved here is the cleaning up your computer of the different kinds of files that keep piling on. This activity is also known as registry repair for Windows.

Once we start talking about clean up of windows registry, the next logical question that comes to mind is, what is the Windows Registry. It is actually a database storage facility in your computer where all the information is safely stored. Whenever you are performing any kind of task on your computer, be it starting a program, shutting down a program, surfing the internet, downloading or uploading of any file, addition or removal of USB or any other external device, it is the Windows Registry that you are interacting with behind the scenes. All the information like software, hardware, and all settings and information that your computer has, is stored in the registry.

It is quite natural, therefore, that files and folders pile up and clog the system while performing so many tasks. The cleaning up of the Windows registry, is hence a tedious task which is quite impossible to do manually. In order to optimize your registry, you need to have a tool that will be able to do registry repair for Windows. All the problems that lie in your registry should be detected by the software, as more often than not most of the problems reside very deep in the registry. This will take care of the hang-ups that are caused as a direct result of these problems.

Generally the process of registry cleaning does not involve any threat. But, errors can happen from the Windows Registry Repair. Therefore, it is important that the Registry Repair for Windows should also have another important feature, that is to create and maintain backup files for your registry. You can restore your registry back into its last working state, if the registry cleaner you use has a backup utility.

How To Keep Your Computer Clean With CCleaner

How can I keep my computer clean and tidy?

When we are asked by friends and family how can they keep their computer clean, the one tool we always recommend is CCleaner. CCleaner differs from antivirus tools as it designed to keep your computer tidy – think Jacques from Finding Nemo!

CCleaner will search through your computer and clear out all of the files that have been created when you surf the internet or install software. The majority of these files are benign and pose no threat to you, but they do take up space on your computer so let CCleaner remove them for you. CCleaner will not delete documents and photos from your desktop of the common document folders.

CCleaner will work on Windows; IOS (Apple) and Android mobiles.

Tell me more about CCleaner and what it can do for me!

When you open CCleaner, you will immediately see an ‘Analyse’ button which when pressed, CCleaner will calculate how much space can be recovered from deleting temporary system files. Once you are happy, press the ‘Run Cleaner’ button and all will be removed from your system. NOTE – if you have an internet browser such as Internet Explorer or Chrome open while you run the CCleaner tool, you will be asked to close the browser to allow the files to be removed.

Under the ‘Tools’ button (the spanner icon), you will find some very useful tools that you may, depending on your technical knowledge or confidence,

Uninstall – Click on Uninstall and CCleaner will show you all the different programs that have been installed on your machine and when this was installed. Some of the very common names you may wish to look for and remove include:

Delta Search
MyWebSearch Toolbar

If you do stumble across a program name that you would like to remove, click on the program name and select the ‘Uninstall’ button on the top right of the CCleaner screen.

Startup – This is a great feature, but you will need to understand what it is you are doing before pressing any buttons in here. Startup, as the name suggests, will list all the software that will start when your computer starts; web browser(s) and Scheduled Tasks. It is very likely that when you click on the Windows tab you will see a substantial list of names of software that starts each time your Windows computer starts. You can disable software by selecting it and pressing the ‘Disable’ button. We will not be advising which you should or shouldn’t disable as each computer is very different.

When you click on the ‘Scheduled Tasks’ within Startup, this is where you will get a good feel as to whether or not your computer is running malicious software. The individuals or organisations that produce malicious software often use your computer to schedule the infection to run at certain times, and CCleaner will help you see this. Again we cannot advise you which to disable as each computer will have different tasks running depending on the software you have running. One to look out for though will be listed as just “At1” although the numerical digit may differ from one; if you have this please backup all your precious documents and photos then run antivirus.

We strongly suggest that you do not use the ‘Registry fix’ tool with the CCleaner software unless you are very competent system user and you have a full backup of your data.

Like most software tools, CCleaner also offers a ‘Pro’ version of the software that comes with a charge. The Pro version will offer you support via the Piriform (the people behind CCleaner) and the software will automatically update itself. The free version will notify you when an update is released, but you will need to visit their website and download the latest version.
