We all know the frustration of having a computer which is sluggish and slow. Through time, computers do slow down. However, that doesn’t make it any easier when you are unable to do various things, like browse the web, watch a movie, play games, or correspond with friends via e-mail and social networking. There are some things you CAN do, to solve the PC slowdown issue. Having a computer that can run faster is essential in our Web 2.0 world.
Any Windows based computers, and Macs as well, will suffer from slowing down sooner or later. One of the root causes is that of your PC registry. The registry is a large database which plays a central role in program access and data storage for your PC. It’s the storehouse of all the information on your PC such as: word processing documents, data for games played, screen savers, and internet searches.
When the registry slows a computer down, the rate of slowing will increase with every new installation or application. As more and more data gets added to the registry, your computer has a heavier and heavier load of luggage to access. Also, with the addition or deletion of applications, games, and software; information can be corrupt or damaged. In other words, the amount and type of information in the registry means that your PC will require more and more time to work its way through it – meaning it continues to s. . . l. . . .ow down considerably. There are ways, though, to make your computer run faster.
A simple solution is to clear out, replace, or repair any and all corrupt or damaged files in the registry. There is software available which is an actual ‘registry cleaner.’ What this does is clear any old and damaged entries in your system and delete the data files which are the causes of it running more slowly.
