  2. Right-click the local disk volume that you want to defragment, and then click Properties.

I need a license key for Registry Optimizer now.

Suggest you use CCleaner, and not ask for an illegal license key.

CCleaner works as well as paid for registry cleaner programs, and better than some paid for registry cleaners.




I can guide you in downloading, installing, and using CCleaner.
I have been using it for around 5 years. (Longer?)

In my guiding you will see that you will just use the basic settings.
The advanced settings are Really for an advanced user, anyway.
Plus no need for these settings.

Following this there is no way you will delete anything you weren't supposed to, and mess up the Registry.

After that suggest you Disk Defragment.


When you go to a website you pick cookies. Harmless, but they take up room on the Harddrive.
When you delete a program, you leave behind fragmented files of that program.
Takes up room on the Harddrive.
Various things you do within the course of a day, will leave behind fragmented files.

The more room on a harddrive, the faster the computer.

Harddrive is 50 percent full? You start noticing a slow down.
Harddrive is 70 percent or more full? You REALLY notice your computer slowing down now.

Delete programs that you hardly ever, or never use.
(NOT Windows programs!!)
Copy off personal documents that you do not readily need on your computer;

Photos, videos, music, and personal documents you have created, or downloaded.

More room on the harddrive, the faster the computer.

Remember how fast the computer was when you first got it?

Posting a license key for Registry Optimizer is an illegal action.
FixYa and it's experts do not engage in illegal activities.

my computer is very slow and I need not much time left standing

The reasons for a computer being slow could be either that you have a full hard drive low memory or possibly and more likely you have malware on it. first thing to do is run and anti malware program like Malware Bytes
Download the free version and allow it to update and run a scan. once this has been done your PC should run a lot faster.

If not check your hard drive free space if it is below 15% you need to delete some of your old files and programs to free up some more

software work to slow and it shot down

Software Installation : Installing more and more software can make the computer slow down. The reasons for that are that installation of a software will make entries in registry and that is somewhat bad. The software may be running in the startup. The software will install various files on the computer and an overloaded hard disk makes the computer slow.
Free up disk space : Try to keep your hard disk space free. You’ll always notice that a computer with free space on hard disk will always run much faster than the one which is loaded with extra stuff.
* Remove Unwanted Items From Startup : Well, if you’ll remove the unwanted softwares from the startup then your computer will boot up much faster and the memory (RAM) will also remain free and thus that will again result in better computing experience
Run hard disk maintenance utilities : Always run the utilities like Disk Defragmentation or Disk checking utilities regularly, around once in 2 weeks
Run Registry Cleaner : Right, this one is related to first tip. In case you’ve already installed and uninstalled various softwares before reading this tutorial then you can go ahead and run various registry cleaning softwares
