What Are Registry Errors & How Do You Fix Them?
The Windows registry acts much like a brain. It is responsible for storing certain information required for all your programs to turn on and function. Registry errors can be problematic, but they are usually no more than a nuisance. With the right knowledge and tools, these problems can be repaired quickly and easily.

Registry Errors and their Causes
Errors often are caused by unnecessary or errant files on your computer system. For example, installing an application leaves a registry entry that allows the program to work. This can cause problems to the registry on startup. Similarly, if you remove a program incorrectly, it essentially leaves a trace of itself behind. Certain malicious programs, such as viruses and spyware, are sometimes designed to cause registry errors that are difficult to repair.

Computers are complicated machines, and just because your computer is not running well does not mean the problem is in the registry. Knowing the symptoms is crucial to understanding registry errors. Check your computer's overall performance. If the computer seems to be running significantly slower than usual, sits suspended with little activity or frequently freezes up, there is a good chance your registry is to blame. Also, you may notice that it takes a long time to start, or in the most extreme case, will not start at all. Listen for a beeping noise when you shut down your system, because this often indicates a hacker or virus affecting the machine.

Registry Cleaning Tools
Unless you are a professional, it is not recommended that you try to fix your registry manually. Luckily, there are many user friendly programs designed to resolve registry issues. They work much like an anti-virus program, scanning your registry for errors and fixing them. Software Industry Report recommends RegZooka, Registry Easy and RegCure as its top choice.

Logically, the best way to fix a problem is to prevent it from happening. Ken Smith has a few tips for reducing the chance of registry errors. First, make sure you correctly uninstall unused programs. This means you should either use the uninstall tool provided with the application or the Add/Remove Programs tool in the Control Panel section of Windows. Second, run regular virus checks and keep an eye out for harmful programs. Third, do not illegally download copyrighted programs or games from dangerous websites. These applications often contain viruses that could damage your registry.

Hi, My laptop taking so much time to switch on and it became very slow. Please tell me the soluiton for it.

Sometimes slow booting of computers and Laptops are caused by viruses and spywares. Also, a High temperatured Processor makes a computer slow.
Here are some solutions you might want to try.
  1. If you have a installed antivirus in your computer, i suggest you update your Antivirus and then Start scanning your computer for possible viruses and spywares.
  2. If viruses and Spywares are not the problem, maybe your Processor is feeling to much heat. I suggest you use Laptop Coolers like this one. heifentrixx_11.jpg
  3. This will help you cool down you Processor and Laptop.
Hope my solution will help. Thanks for using Fixya!

So I have a new HP OFFICEJET 6500 model 709n printer that returns an error at 94% or 96% every single time during install. Ive tried everything It usually gets stuck at step 4 of 4 at configuring your...

Make sure that
(1) Your Computer is free of Viruses otherwise get a good anti virus update it and check and clean your computer.
(2) Take a good Registry cleaning software like RegCure, Registry booster etc and use it to clean the registry of your computer with bad links and other corrupt information of your Operating System.
These registry software are very basic and easy to use and I recommend it to be a must of all client PCs.
If you have problems in buying one try this freeware Registry cleaner.

(3)If this does not help then change your printer setup file it must be corrupt. You should attain a setup file for your printer from a different source or try your setup file which is giving an error, take it and try to install it on another computer if there is a similar error than the problem is definitely with the setup file.
On the contrary time if there is no error and setup installs smoothly on the other computer then your computer especially the Operating system(Like Windows XP, Vista and 7) require special attention your PC should be free of Viruses your Registry should be extremely neat and clean and you should be using good Registry software. There will many errors in your registry needed to be fixed by registry software but if your registry does not have the problem which the registry software will tell you.
In the most extreme cases upgrading or reinstalling your Operating System will dramatically show good results provided the setup file is not corrupt.

Good Luck!

My computer was recently infected with the rouge virus called AV security suite. It apparently has been going around to alot of computers. I can get rid of it by running Malwarebytes in the safe mode but...


Malwarebytes will cure the error for a while but as you said the problem tends to return.
This is because the registry has been corrupted by the virus.

Run malwarebytes in safe mode and let it clean the system. Then if you can use system restore to take the computer back to a time before the virus installed itself on the computer. If you have no restore points on the computer then you will need a registry cleaner like CCleaner to clean the registry and clean the temporary and temporary internet files.

You can download CCleaner from the link i have provided below. If that does not work you will need to reinstall the operating system or use any recovery CD's that you may have got with the system.

Not familair with the yaabaa virus/spyware but usually this error is because your av got rid of the infection but didn't clean up the registry entry. So windows tries to load it and can't find the file so shows the error. So AVg killed it but it didn;t clean up afterwards.
