Spring cleaning for your registry

Monday, February 07, 2000
Almost every change you make to your system generates an entry in the registry; the heart of the Windows operating system. Over time these entries become invalid. For example, an entry which records that 'My Home Movie.avi' is stored in the folder 'c:\Brilliant Stuff' becomes useless if you subsequently move the file to another folder. Badly written uninstallers, however, are the worst culprits when it comes to throwing a spanner in the works; they are notorious for leaving behind useless entries once a program has been removed from your operating system. In no time at all these meaningless entries can clog up the registry and slow down your computer. To sweep out these rogue entries and keep your system running smoothly you need to use a registry cleaner. There are lots of these available and many of them are free, yet the most efficient one I've come across to date is Reg Supreme. 9 out of 10 registries prefer it... or so I'm told :D
