Facts About Windows Registry

The Windows registry will fill up with registry errors over time. Each time you install or uninstall software, the registry is affected. Often the software will not uninstall properly and registry keys referencing files that no longer exist will build up in your Windows registry.

In order to combat registry errors, you must periodically run registry cleaner software. Registry cleaners have been developed to clean all Windows systems including;
