Diagnosing the Brain: Your Computer’s Registry
Many of us use our computers every day, unaware of the daily assaults they endure from adding and deleting files and programs or simply surfing the internet.
Every action a computer does requires accessing its registry, and over time, these actions begin to affect the computer’s ability to read its internal registry, which is kind of like an inventory of all the information on your computer that tells it how to run files and programs.
Your computer constantly modifies that registry to account for any changes you make whether it’s saving a one-page word document or doing some major programming.
If enough changes are made, you may find that your computer’s basic functions have been affected. It may run a little slower, display strange error messages, fail to end programs successfully, or even be unable to run at all.
Many people have computer problems that are rooted in the registry, but few know what to do to remedy the problem.
