How To Clean The Windows Registry

The Windows Registry is a database/storage area for the operating system that is used to centralize settings and data for Windows itself, but also for countless apps that choose to use it (the alternative is a local settings file).

It was created for Windows 3.1 and doesn’t always reflect how apps are being used today. As a result, it is quite common to see computers with a bloated Windows Registry. This would result in slower computers because the more information there is, the longer it takes to find information.

There are solutions to clean-up and defragment the Windows Registry to avoid wasting performance and disk space, and to make your computer faster. In this article, we will show you how to do it in a matter of clicks.

Warning: Before changing anything in the registry or even using an application for cleaning the registry, it is recommended you backup the registry. Deleting any sensitive entry can lead to damaging your Windows.
