Having a new computer is great! Everything is working fine, all the features you want are there, and it's smooth and fast. You can surf the net quickly and very efficiently. It's like driving a new car, it's just a joy. That's because it has not had time to suffer the problems that can occur with use over time. Just like a car engine, it needs some fine tuning sometimes.
You can rest assured that if you do not do anything in the way of maintenance for your computer, it will come back to haunt you. As your computer gets some time and use under its belt, it will always begin to slow down. You may experience freezes or even crashes, unless you take some kind of action to clean up the things that are slowing it down, and clogging it up.
Once you troubleshoot these problems, many times you find that your registry is where the problem lies. All Windows computers have a Windows registry. This is a huge database of files that are used in the operation of your computer. Anytime you download something onto your computer, the registry receives files relating to the operation of this program. And when you choose to 'uninstall' these programs, many times all the files do not get taken out of the registry.
The result is that you now have a build-up of useless files clogging up the registry, and slowing down the performance of your machine. Other problems that add to this problem, are spyware, malware, and adware. There are some software programs that will leave a file in your registry so that after your trial period, you can not use their program any more without purchasing it. And all these useless files will accumulate, and build up after time. This means that your registry gets overloaded and it has to read through so many unnecessary files to run what you have, it takes it much longer to perform its functions.
The best way for you to counteract this problem, is to download a good registry cleaner from the internet. These cleaners are good at removing these unnecessary files that are clogging up your PC. You can get an idea about just how trashed your registry is from the free service that most of these programs offer. They will scan your registry, then tell you the amount of errors they find.
There are a lot of these programs available for downloading, and you want to make sure you use a good one. This may mean a little research before you buy, but it's worth the time. There are some with very good reputations, that can get your computer back into working condition with little effort on your part.
