Registry Cleaners

You may be reading this tip because you watch too much television!

You probably have seen those infomercials, especially on late night TV, that claim that your PC's registry is terribly clogged and causing your PC to run sluggish and slow and their registry cleaning product can dramatically speed up your PC and make things wonderful again (for an easy payment of $39.99 plus a bloated shipping and handling charge).

Please don't believe them!  99+% of you won't see those dramatic super speed-up changes (your PC is NOT going to go twice as fast if you install their program!).  It will be a complete waste of $ for most of you.  If you do have extra money to get rid of, I suggest a donation to your favorite charity, or contact me because my daughter's college fund is in desperate need of donations.

If your PC is really slow, crashing and/or having issues, a good computer shop like Discount Computer Service can get you the REAL solution to your computer problems, which may involve things like adding memory, virus/spyware cleaning, hardware troubleshooting, etc. that will solve the real cause of your issue.

That said, even though the registries of most Windows XP and newer PCs really don't get very 'dirty', there are some FREE registry cleaners that you can get which may slightly help your computer's speed - especially if your computer is fairly old.  When you install, then uninstall or upgrade many programs on your PC, many of these programs may leave behind many registry entries that are unnecessarily filling your registry.  The registry cleaners can find and clean these entries.

Registry cleaning can sometimes be a risky processs!  At worst, if could render your PC non-bootable!  Please use caution and backup your registry before you make any changes (the following 2 FREE registry cleaning programs give you a backup option when you run them)!

Here are my top 2 FREE registry cleaning products:

Eusing Free Registry Cleaner
"a free registry repair software that allows you to safely clean and repair registry problems with a few simple mouse clicks"

CCleaner
(note: you can download it directly from here, the other download link from their website can be a bit tricky)
A fast and free system optimization, privacy and cleaning tool which additionally contains a fully featured registry cleaner.
