The Windows XP registry is your computer's repository for system settings and configuration data. Over time, the registry can become bloated and even corrupted. Problems with the registry can slow down your computer and cause programs to malfunction. To maintain a clean, healthy system, you should periodically scan your registry for errors and fix them when found. You could do this manually, but Microsoft suggests that you use registry cleaning software instead. These programs can be downloaded from the Internet. Before you make any changes to the registry, back it up first.

The guide below is for technical person. But the software approach can do the operations without tasks of following instructions: open access

Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Registry cleaning software
  1. Back Up the Registry
    • 1 Click the Windows XP "Start Menu", type regedit and press "Enter". The registry window will open.
    • 2 Click "file" (at the top of the window) and select "Export". You can choose any name that is easy to remember.
    • 3 Type a name for the registry file that you want to create and click "Save". A copy of your registry will be saved to that file. If problems occur after you clean your registry, you can restore your Windows XP registry by double-clicking the file that you saved. It will have a file extension of reg. Be sure to remember where you save the file.
  2. Fix the Registry
    • 1 Download a registry cleaning program, such as CCleaner or nCleaner, and install it. These programs are specifically designed to clean and fix your registry. You can find links for this in the Resources section.
    • 2 Run the program's "Scan for errors" function. The software will locate any problems that it finds and display a list along with recommendations for proceeding. This intermediate step enables you to view any errors before you fix them. All registry cleaners may not have a button that says "Scan for errors", but they will have one that performs the task. See your program's documentation for details.
    • 3 Decide on a cleaning option. Some registry cleaners have an "auto-clean" button. Pressing this will automatically repair all errors shown on the error list. PC World suggests that you never select that auto-clean option. Instead, review the list of changes and select the ones recommended by the software.
    • 4 Click the program's repair button to fix the registry. The software will repair the registry and show you a list of corrections when it is finished.

Tips & Warnings
  • Many registry cleaners exist. Some of them perform remarkably well while others are only partially good at finding errors. Check the Internet for reviews and recommendations when choosing one to download. You can find many excellent free cleaners as well.

  • The Windows XP registry is a critical system component on your computer and serious problems can occur if the registry is incorrectly managed. Follow your registry cleaner's instructions carefully and you should not have any problems.

Drive mounting but then stalling when opening files. Disk Utility sometimes says drive is okay, other times won't complete diagnostic. Just reported invalid node structure.


Run Scandisk to repair hardrive defect. Then, click and open your anti-virus software, and run Scan. This will rid the virus from your hard drive. To optimize the PC speed, click open the Tune up Utilities 2008, to remove unwanted or unused files of your PC. If you don't have the Tune up Utilities 2008 software, you can download from the internet free. Please feel free to send us your e-mail for further assistance.

how to increase my internet/downloading speed?


More than likely, the 460.8 figure is in kiloBITS per second, which means your downloads measured in kiloBYTES per second will be at a maximum, 57.6, which is still obviously higher than you are getting. One thing to consider is that you might not be in an area that supports 3G. That will affect your speed. Also, on the windows end, you can try this little (free) utility that will optimize your TCP settings in the registry: http://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php
this utility is not a "speed optimizer" snake-oil program that just compresses images or something cheesy like that. It was actually mentioned on TechTV.
