The registry is the file that connect all the other files of Windows together. If you don't have a backup for it then the only thing you can do is to reinstall Windows. If you need to recover some files before that then boot from a Linux Live-Cd and copy them to another external disk or memory stick.

My VAIO laptop freezes after a few minutes and I have to remove the battery and reboot. Help! Thanks


This seems to be a common problem with laptops over a couple of years old. Dust gets trapped in the copper fins and the fan of the CPU heatsink and reduces the efficiency of the cooling, which results in regular power off's by the laptop as it gets over it's upper temperature setting. The fix is relatively easy, just remove the heatsink unit, blow it clean with compressed air, clean the old CPU heatsink paste off with isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and spray a thin film of heatsink paste on the CPU.

Common Signs Of Windows Registry Errors

  • Slow start-up, shut-down:

    The first sign commonly observed in windows registry error is PC's slow start up and shot down. As the windows registry gets large and disorganised, the PC takes too much time to bootup and the same is the case with shut down procedure. The loading and unloading of the start up programs takes a long time.

  • Frequent Error Messages:

    A corrupt and disorganised windows registry gives rise to frequent error messages. When the windows search the registry for its related entries, you get error messages as they are not referenced properly.

  • Freezes and Crashes:

    If the windows operating system cannot find the corresponding registry entry, then the computer just freezes and crashes. This is a very important sign showing that the windows registry is corrupt and needs an urgent repair.

  • Blue Screen Of Death:

    Blue screen of message is a final warning message displayed with blue screen so as to prevent the damage to the PC. They are more commonly referred as stop errors. When the PC faces critical failure, then it leads to BSOD.

  • Sluggish Performance:

    Due to the corrupt and disorganised windows registry, the PC suffers from sluggish performance. Even a brand new PC when has cluttered windows registry experiences slow system performance.

  • Cannot Add/Remove a Program:

    If you want to add/remove a program, then you enter the control panel and make settings. But with corrupted registry entries, you can't even uninstall the programs normally.



Why Do You Get Windows Registry Errors?

After knowing about the windows registry and signs of the registry errors, you may be worrying about the actual causes for the windows registry errors. Though there are many reasons accounting for the registry errors, but the below highlighted ones are known to cause severe effect.

  • Multitude of Programs:

    Generally what we do is download all sorts of things even if it is not necessary. There are many programs on our hard disk which we do not even touch. This multitude of programs uses a lot of memory and processing capacity. It makes the registry to get overloaded.

  • Spyware, Adware, Viruses or Malware:

    As the windows registry is the core of the PC, many viruses and spyware attack it. They simply create registry and/or modify the keys and infect them. For a normal person, it is very dangerous to handle the registry keys. Only a technically competent person can edit them.

  • Tracking Programs:

    Some internet programs install themselves and have registry keys associated with them. They do have multiple keys within the registry. They get mixed up with the normal registry keys and are difficult to delete due to their multiple names and folders.

  • Incomplete Install & Un-installation of Programs:

    While installing and/or uninstalling the programs, you need to follow the official program but some just add/delete them manually. Even if you delete the program manually, the registry keys are not deleted. So you have to fully uninstall the program along with the associated registry keys. The same is the case with failed and incomplete installations. The registry key already stays there. If you make incomplete installation, the windows registry gets overloaded with corrupt entries and gives your error messages.

  • Continued Usage:

    The more the software and hardware you have on your PC, the more is windows registry. Over the prolonged usage, the registry becomes cluttered and disorganised. Whenever the data changes, the windows registry becomes overloaded and the corresponding registry keys are not updated. So this results in a corrupt windows registry and we do observe the registry errors.



hope this helps

Your machine is old, there's not much you can do. Remove any programs you don't use, stop programs from starting-up with the OS, and increase your RAM: http://www.crucial.com/index.aspx

It is running so slow!! It pauses and screen fades to light color! I cannont do my work!! Help!!


This could be for a couple of reasons, 1) you have a virus causing your laptop to crash or 2) you have a faulty Hard Drive.

Try downloading and running Hit Man Pro (an anti-virus software) that should clean up any viruses you have, download it here:

Run the scan and remove and viruses it finds and reboot the computer...see if this makes any difference, if not, try booting up in the recovery partition and repairing Windows.

Let me know if this helps

My pc is running slow


Hello

There could be several reasons for this:

[Software type]
1. There are too many trash files (temporary files left after some program crashes or uninstallation; temporary internet files and small amount of free memory after all)
2. Your computer Registry should be cleaned and optimized
3. Your hard disks should be defragmented
4. Some components have bad or corrupted drivers
5. Viruses, trojans and other malware may slow down your PC performance
6. Too many programs running at Startup or in your SysTray
7. Inacurate size of Virtual Memory
My advice would be to use this " Faster Computer Now" guide at:
http://tinyurl.com/yzvb3eg

[Hardware type]
1. If your computer wasn't fast from begining, consider upgrading RAM and/or Processor (see your computer mainboard's documentations for available options)
2. Hardware mullfunction

Of course there are more reasons, but I just mentioned mostly common

Notebook won't reboot because windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or corrupt.


Hi...

This is a Operating System problem, did you face and error during you've reformat your computer. Some of the components of your Operating System are corrupted you need to re install the windows CD to fix the problem.
Mostly of the causes in this problem is not shutdown the computer properly,

Note: If you can not shutdown you computer properly it will cause file corrupted.
