Windows is one of the wonders of the computer age. Not only has it become one of the most popular operating systems, but it's also one of the most powerful. It can do everything from help you check your emails, all the way through to entertaining you with a video game. However, all this falls through when it starts to run slowly.
Most Windows computers start running slow at some point in their lives. This is a pretty common problem with Windows computers, but is easily curable. It almost always boils down to one thing – the 'registry'. This is the database which powers Windows, but is also the part of your PC that makes it run the slowest.
The registry is basically the central database for your computer. It contains everything from your latest emails to your desktop wallpaper, making it one of the most important parts of your system. Every time you use your PC, Windows is adding and updating the files inside this database, which actually ends up slowing your machine down. With 100's of these files all being added and edited every day, your computer ends up accidently losing some, and making some corrupt.
When this happens, your computer has to spend more and more time trying to find the files it needs, which makes it run slower and slower. And because it can not actually fix the files itself, it ends up on a downward spiral, which only you can save it from.
To fix this common problem, you just need to be able to fix the registry files that have become corrupted or lost. However, there's a problem. Because the registry database has over 100,000 files inside, it's simply impossible for anyone to go through and fix it manually. So we need to rely on a special tool to do it for us …. and that tool comes in the form of a registry cleaner .
Registry cleaners are simple pieces of software, which actually scan through the registry and fix every bad file in there. There are a few of these programs knocking around, but I've found the one that speeds your computer up the most, one called "RegCure".
