In order to appreciate the importance of registry cleaning, the computer user must develop an understanding of a computer's configuration. That configuration is shaped by the database on the computer, and that database reflects the extent of information on the computer.
When the computer user installs a software program, the information in the registry is created, changed or deleted. When the computer user uninstalls a program, information in the registry is created, changed or deleted. When the computer user calls-up an installed program, information in the registry is created, changed or deleted.
In the absence of registry cleaning, the amount of information in the computer's configuration grows larger and larger, each time that the computer is used. There are bound to be times when a computer is used for tasks of only slight importance. The information from those tasks adds "clutter" to the computer registry.
A large and fragmented registry can slow the operation of a computer. It can cause the computer to have all sorts of strange software problems. Registry cleaning prevents the appearance of such problems.
During registry cleaning, a software program is used to scan the windows registry. During that scanning procedure, the registry cleaner (the software) locates the incorrect or outdated information. The cleaner gets rid of error-prone or obsolete information. It thus provides the computer user with a much faster computer.
Some computer users quit to employ registry cleaning tools, because they fear the loss total loss of information that may later appear of value. A good registry cleaner has a restore / backup function. That functions gives the computer user the ability to restore a computer's registry to its original configuration.
The computer's registry reflects the skills and preferences of the computer user. Should a software program be installed incorrectly, and then replaced, the information entered during the improper installation remains in the registry.
Removal of a registry from a computer does not lead to removal of the registry entries. Those entries, which became part of the registry during an earlier application, remain a part of the total database. Even registry entries associated with a deleted computer file remain in the configuration of a computer system that has not been cleaned.
Over time, the registry in a computer fills with all manner of "orphan" files. In addition, it acquires a good deal of superfluous and false information. All of that unnecessary information slows the operation of the computer.
A slow computer is often an error filled computer. Moreover, the computer's lack of speed can wear on the computer user, leading to the creation of even more incorrect
information. That forces the computer to store an even larger amount of incorrect facts and figures.
Since a computer user typically relations on the speed with which a computer normally carries-out operations, the average computer user does not want a slow computer. A computer user can not go out and buy a newer and faster computer. The computer user must purchase a registry cleaner.
The registry cleaning process gives the computer user the fast computer that he or she needs.
