A <b>computer </b>can be compared to a piano. piano keys must be refined from time to time for a good sound. Personal computers, however, must be well maintained to keep it running like new. To improve the <b>performance</b> of a<b> PC</b>, you should start by cleaning the Windows registry. These are the steps on how to improve the performance of <b>your PC</b>.<br />
First, scan the<b> Windows registry</b> using a registry cleaner. Just be careful not to use software that is loaded with viruses and other hacking devices. Use only software that is already proven and have a good reputation. You can easily find them by looking at other online tests.<br />
Another tip for choosing a <b>registry cleaner</b> is to choose one that has the ability to reverse its actions. Some cleaners are sensitive to specific files and delete the key features of your computer. When this occurs, you must have a back up or you may have to redo the<b> registry cleaning</b> to recover deleted data.<br />
When <b>cleaning</b> the <b>Windows registry</b> is complete, <b>scan</b> and <b>error correction</b> is the next step in this process. To help your <b>computer </b>run like new, just clean up the <b>registry</b>, but also to remove the virus as well. virus removal can be done to find the right anti-virus program. It 's easier to remove the virus if the software is already installed on your computer, but otherwise you can still find online programs to use, that can help.<br />
Check the disk space left on your hard drive ... most times it doesn't have enough free space for windows to run efficiently. try removing programs you don't use and put any pics or videos you have on there to a usb drive .
Sounds like malware. How do you know of the registry errors? Is it Scareware that reporting all the errors? Try freeware MALWAREBYTES download at : http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ In the install UNCHECK the TRIAL PRO version, you want the freeware version. Run a FULL scan, it may take hours, depending on the HDD size, delete ALL results, reboot. Also, Run a FULL scan with your up-to-date Anti Virus, delete ALL results. Post results. Try Opening SERVICES and starting Windows Defender after the scans.
There are many things that you can do to help.
The first thing is defragmenting the hard drive.
The second is (if Vista or Windows 7) set your windows defender to scan at a different time than your virus software (this does not apply to Windows XP).
The third is cleaning out the cookies folder. Cookies will continue to build up in a computer to a point where it will diminish the performance of the computer.
The next thing is to do a disk clean up.
Then the last thing to do is go to http://www.bitdefender.com/scanner/online/free.html
and do a free scan. This will make sure your virus software has not missed a potential virus threat.
If it finds a virus that your virus software has missed, you might consider uninstalling it and using something like Avast or AVG or both together (both free versions).
These are just a few simple things to go through.
clean the pc up to speed it up a little, download ccleaner and install it, run the cleaner and delete all the files it finds, then clean the registry and fix the issues found, if it asks you to save the changes to the registry click yes and fix do this a couple of times so no issues are found. If the pc is still slow after this clean then the issue is either memory or the operating system is degrading.
well most likely you have a virus that is causing this. there are three programs you will need to download and run full scans with. this will take some time so make sure you are settled in for this. viruses are such a drag. if you can i would suggest you copy and paste these instructions and print them from another computer so you have them. ok here we go.

The Yahoo Software comes with Spyware & Adware; never seen AT&T Yahoo Antivirus detect any virus in my experience. Unfortunately you have to install the software to setup your DSL for the first time; after that it's worthless. I would scan your computer with Microsoft Windows Defender or Ad-Aware by Lavasoft; both are free tools and find many of the common infections. Moreover, it wouldn't hurt to pay for a McAfee or a Nortin Subscription for virus protection; I use McAfee because it doesn't lag my system. There is a free virus protection program called AVG Free which I'm told works good for the price.
