Well, it's almost two months later, since the last entry here.
Just a little history. Back in the DOS days, we didn't have to worry about registry cleaning, because there wasn't one. lol
Enter Windows and the windows registry. Every program installed into Windows, adds a ton of stuff to the registry. And, very few program removal tools, remove all those now useless registry entries.
As we run our PC's daily, the OS is constantly referring to the registry for information on just how a program should run.
It surely doesn't require a Rocket Scientist, to conclude that in time, a bloated and possibly fragmented registry is going to take its toll on system performance.
Likewise, a badly fragmented Hard Drive.
Just like I've always liked to keep my cars in tip top tune, I likewise like to keep all my computers in tip top condition. Sorry Charlie, keeping the Crap out of your registry or HD is not Snake Oil.
It's called good Maintenance.
Just like very few people can properly tune up their cars, even fewer people can tune up their PC.
It's always been an interest of mine, so I've worked it down to a Science.
Over the decades that I worked as a computer tech, I've performed my own Computer Tune Up on hundreds and possibly thousands of PC's. When I would finish a Tune-Up, the typical response from my customer would be, "Dang, it didn't run that fast when it was new!"
All I could say, is, "I know. It's what I do."
Without fail, the first steps of any PC Tune-Up is to get rid of all the CRAP on the HD, including old, unused and possibly bad registry entries. THAT'S NOT SNAKE OIL!
I'll stop, , , I didn't mean for this to run so long.
