Windows registry is a repository which collects massive data about your computer as it practically records everything that is performed on Windows. It is literally a cluttered space as Windows, by itself is not capable of cleaning the system efficiently as it’s always busy in creating new entries. Even though you uninstall a program or application, it leaves some unneeded pointers in the registry and thus slows down your system.
To resolve this issue, many PC registry cleaners are marketed to the users with the claim that they would speed up the computer system making it function better. However, before making your decision to purchase or install a free PC cleaner on your computer system because above all claims they make everything depends on the condition of your registry and the effectiveness of the registry cleaner that you select. Another thing to be considered is that registry cleaners usually delete things from the registry. While most of the times it is safe, there are times when registry cleaners caused serious problems to the computers and their data.
Though most of the modern PC registry cleaners feature built-in methods to reverse changes when things go against expectations, it is not recommended to invest in an advertised PC cleaning system. Being diligent while making your choice is the first step towards protecting your system from unwanted attacks. Also, remember to back up your registry before letting the cleaner to remove or delete entries. Doing this would save you even if the registry cleaner doesn’t have an ‘undo’ option, you can use the backed up registry file to restore it back.
One more important thing to be highlighted is that registry cleaners do not speed up the computers and so, you do not need to run them regularly. Hackers are talented enough to compromise the quality of the wide range of PC cleaning software as happened with CCleaner software in August and September wherein malicious hackers had illegally modified the version 5.33 of CCleaner software which was available for download for about a month.
Your computer data is precious and we, at Net Activity, Inc. recommend you not to install any PC registry cleaners without proper survey of their history. Also, think twice before going for cleaners that invest huge amounts on marketing and advertisements as they are no good.
