Speed up PC.-no virus/spyware,disk,

If you are determined to risk registry cleaning, you might try Wise Registry Cleaner, Glary's registry cleaner, or the registry cleaner in CCleaner or the commercial Advanced System Mechanic. You may use Revo Uninstaller to completely remove the programs you installed immediately before trouble emerged or resort to accessing the registry backup you created before cleaning. Many of the cleaners allow creation of such backups from within the software..

Sooner or later, registry cleaning seems to result in a "gotcha." You will be glad you had system restore points when that day happens. I try to leave registry junk alone, use portable apps to avoid installs affecting the registry, and make a restore point prior to every software installation.

How do you determine what is safe to clean? Well, Wise Registry Cleaner rather gives you a screen which suggests what is purportedly completely safe to remove by the screen colors indicating safe ones. If you have any doubts, don't remove the registry entry.

Not that the advice will keep you completely safe! Backup your critical data files to an external hard drive before engaging in too much registry tampering. As you chase performance, cleaning suites sound like a good option, right up to the point you crash, then you are chasing recovery options.

Use of Sandboxes and Virtual Drives avoid some garbage collection but that far more than you have requested to know about.

Adding ram sped up XP machines more than registry tweaks ever did.

4. Use a registry cleaner:When you use a registry cleaner,it helps you get rid of unnecessary files.if you don’t want to spend money a registry cleaner there are a lot of free registry cleaner’s available in the internet they are free to download. But the issue with those registry cleaner’s is that they don’t do a complete cleanup they do a little work and tell you to by the premium to do the rest. So it’s better to buy a one for money. get a good one
There many more problems and solutions to improve system performance. Just keep posted. . There is also very many freeware programs and programs you can buy that help you on your quest to a faster computer.

How to use Ccleaner to keep your Computer in good condition

Hi Everyone

I want to explain to you how you use Ccleaner to keep your Computer in good condition.

What is CCleaner ?? Ccleaner is a program that remove the junk files (unnecessary files) from your computer and clean up the registry in a very safe mode.


You can choose what junk files you want to remove, it is categorized so it is easy to find out ex. if you need the cookies of your Internet Browser you can simply uncheck this feature.
Junk files are coming when you are using the computer, so many programs write temporary files to the computer and after they do not need them any more, but they need it only just at the moment they are being used. Time after time when you use the computer, programs writing new temporary files and the computer starting getting full of this temporary files, that means the computer are getting slower and slower and some times the programs comes up with strange errors not even the support Team can help you with. It is safe to remove the junk files when you are use a recommended program as Ccleaner (I will say it is the best on cleaner).
If you never have removed the junk files on your computer and you use Ccleaner, you will note the difference right after, the computer will run better/faster/more stable.

In Ccleaner there 2 things that are wery inportant to do and are completely safe to do:
1: Junk files cleaner
2: Registry cleaner

About Registry cleaner :


Registry cleaner are categorized too, you can see on the picture above how it search in different sections on the registry (Missing Shared DLLs, Unused File Extensions, ActiveX and Class Issues.... etc. You can choose to only take one category at the time or you can select as many you like.Once you have selected the category's(errors/junk) you want to search for, you press on the button down on the screen Called Scan for Issues. After you have done that, Ccleaner start searching in your registry for the checked issues. When it have done that, you can choose to repair the problems, just selecting the Fix the selected Issues. You have the possibility to choose what files you want to delete first. After this you can make a backup of the files before you delete them, in case of any errors you can always restore the files.


This is the first registry cleaner I did start with, I still use it once a week and others registry cleaner (more deep search) I do use once a month.
I can fully recommend Ccleaner as registry cleaner, and I did never had problem with it. It is a light registry cleaner and you can safely use it.

Registry's errors are coming when you are upgrading/updating/uninstall and more in the category of software. Many programs are not so good to clean after them self when they uninstall their product, therefore there are a lot of missing registry items and this are making the computer unstable and slow and more. Using reliable registry cleaners can make your computer running as new again :O)

You can find CCleaner here:

If you want a portable version you can use on your USB storage you can download one of these versions :


One last note : I have been reading in the internet that CCleaner junk cleaner has cleaned Microsoft Office 2003 to good, so they was needed to reinstall the Microsoft Office 2003 again, But my experience is my friend did use it on a destroyed Microsoft Office 2003 and it is running again now without problems, so I let it up to you, if you want to use the feature to clean Office 2003(junk files), you can simply check/uncheck the possibilty. This is only on the junk files and not on the registry files there maybe is a problem, hmm

Have a nice computing.

Windows will not open any files, also have a registry cleaner message stuck

do a restart. what registry cleaner are you using. if you bought it, it was a waste of money. they do little to no good and often cause more problems then they solve.

if you need a registry cleaner (99% of people don't), use ccleaner, use only the scan and the issues functions (top two).

I can't defrag and DLL initialization failed message.

Run a free Registry scan will fixed DLL problem.
So, download a free registry cleaner and install the software. The free registry cleaner software automatically scans the registry, cleans it up, backs up the data for you to restore if you encounter any problem after you have cleaned the registry. The registry cleaner can also configure a startup organizer and remove embedded keys that are used by malware like Trojan, virus, dialers and so on. Registry cleaner software also eliminates the free spaces within the registry and traces of programs that are never completely uninstalled. In short registry cleaners are truly effective tool for safe and faster computing. So get it now!
