You have to be careful with all these 'Registry Optimizers' you see advertised, most of them make more problems than they resolve.

I recommend first downloading and installing nCleaner, and doing a Clean System, then a Clean Registry with that.

Also download Spybot, install, run, download updates, scan for problems, fix selected problems, press the immunize tab, click Immunize, reboot.

After that run Disk Defragmenter.

Your system should be running a lot faster. I would recommend that you keep 15% of your hard drive's memory free at all times, in order that the system has enough resources to work with.

Hope (and know) this helps :)

5 Ways to Speed Up PC

Speed Up PC – How to Boost your PC Speed 29a35a0.jpg
5 Ways to Speed Up PC
Are you fed up with your slow PC? Well you can Speed Up your PC by 3 times. In this post you’ll find some of the most significant ways to speed up your PC. For your convenience, I ’ll split this post into 2 parts.
1. Automatic Ways to Speed Up PC (Using PC Speed Up Softwares)
2. Manual Ways to Speed Up PC
Automatic Ways to Speed Up PC You can use a PC Optimizer Tool to automatically boost the Speed of your PC without the need to worry about the manual ways of doing it. These tools will automatically find and fix upto 99% of your PC errors by optimizing the Windows registry, cleaning up junk files, removing unwanted items from the start up etc. This can speed up your PC and Internet speed by upto 3 times. Here are some of the best PC Optimizer Programs that I recommend.
1. Perfect Optimizer
2. Registry Easy
Using a PC Optimizer is the easiest way to speed up your PC. This is because, most of the performance tweaks such as Registry Cleanup cannot be done manually.
Manual Ways to Speed Up Your PC 1. Free Up Disk Space to increase the speed of your PC
  • Remove temporary Internet files.
  • Empty the Recycle Bin.
  • Remove Windows temporary files.
  • Uninstall Programs that you no longer use.
2. Periodically Perform Hard Disk Defragment. This can Speed Up your PC significantly.
3. Clean Up your Registry (Highly Recommended)
Cleaning Up your Windows Registry is very much necessary to speed up your PC. Unfortunately you cannot do this manually. You have to use a Registry Cleaner to do this. Here is the best registry cleaner on the web.
Registry Easy
A complete review of registry cleaners can be found at Registry Cleaner Comparison
4. Clean Up the browser cache to Speed Up your Internet.
5. Install a good Antispyware software
Spywares can really hurt the performance of your PC. So, install a good anti-spyware to protect your PC from spywares and improve the speed of your PC. I recommend the following Antispywares to protect your PC.
1. Spyware Cease
2. Nodware Anti-Spyware
Which is the Best Way to Speed Up my PC? (Auto or Manual) The best way to speed Up your PC is by using a PC Optimizer such as Perfect Optimizer or Registry Easy. This is because, manual ways can only perform 30-40% of the tweaks to improve the speed of your PC, but the most important aspect of the Speed Up process such as Registry clean Up and other advanced performance tweaks can only be done using a PC Optimizer software. So if you are serious about improving the speed of your PC, then you need to use a PC Optimizer.

Xp very slow closing down just lately

This could be due to a registery that is cluttered. A Free program to clear unneeded junk in the registry is Eusing Registry Cleaner....Google it. Another Free program to speed things up is SPEEDITUP . It frees up RAM which will speed up everything in windows including shutdown. If you have a lot of programs running in your tool bar you might shut them down manually before exiting windows.

Hi,I am trying to Uninstall some unwanted programs and I get a field saying Setup.exe has stopped working ! but only on a few stuborn programs I have uninstalled others OK.I'm running Vista Home Premium...

The register cleaner is the reason the programs wont un install. You need to roll back the registery to correct the problems. If you didn't create a backup prior to running the clean there is not a simple way to correct the problem.
