Have you ever re-installed Windows on an old PC? If so, you'll find that Windows flies. At first, you think that you might have upgraded your hardware, but soon you realise that the fresh installation consists of a near-blank Registry and optimised hard drive. After time, when you've installed and uninstalled software from your computer, remnants will remain within your Registry. This ends up slowing your computer as it takes longer to scan your Registry for the correct and legitimate information.
Instead of going through the long-winded procedure of backing up your important info, re-installing Windows and then re-installing all your important apps, why don't you use a Registry manager to optimise, cleanse and remove invalid keys?
Registry Mechanic 5 is one of the more popular choices, although Registry First Aid 5.02 will also perform the same procedure, as will Abexo Registry Cleaner 4.1. If you're seeking freeware, Eusing Free Registry Cleaner 1.1 is worth a look but, remember to backup your Registry before you cleanse, by using a tool such as ERUNT. If you want to monitor your Registry 'realtime', check the highly-rated free RegMon 7. Let us know how you get on.
