Your computer was running fine, and now all of a sudden it is terrible slow. Sometimes the program just locks up, and will not work. Other times, the entire computer freezes. You know, the point where you must hold the power button down for 5 seconds to shut the machine off. Or, if you are running earlier versions of Windows, the infamous Blue Screen of Death appears. All of these are signs something is wrong with the internals of the computer, and this is causing you to have a slow computer.
Think back, and see if you can remember installing something or uninstalling something since the computer starting acting funny. Most likely, you did. It might have even been something as subtle as an update for your computer, or a greeting card, or even a screen saver. As a side note, screen savers are one of the worst pieces of software carrying spyware with it. If you do download something like this, use your spyware remover and remove the junk that came with it. Back to topic.
We all install and uninstall software. The problem with doing this is it can mess up your registry files. The registry files are a set of operational files which tell the computer how to run and operate the computers software programs and hardware. When you install something new, it might write over an existing registry file. This will then cause the previous software not to work right, hence the freezing of the computer.
On the flip side, if you uninstall software, it may take the registry file with it. Well, what if another program is also using the registry file. Now the computer runs really slow, and possible will just hang there until you put it out of its misery by ctrl-alt-delete. All of these issues can easily be fixed with a registry repair software.
A registry repair software will run a scan of the registry files on your computer. It looks for anything which may be out of place, or wrong, or even missing. If it finds this type of problem, it will then fix it. It can do all of this in less than 10 minutes. I personally found over 400 errors the first time I ran this type of a program. Now, I run this software every week to keep my computer maintained.
If you have a slow running computer, a registry repair software may be just what you need. This will not be a one time fix either, as you can run the software as often as you like, and always keep your computer running fast and free from errors.
