Windows Running Slow?
The good news is that there is a cure for Windows running slow!
Have you ever wondered why no matter how much faster today's microprocessors get, no matter how much more memory your computer has, no matter how large your computer's hard drive gets, no matter how up-to-date your Windows operating system is with all of the latest patches, your system periodically starts slowing down, and the frequency of it starting to freeze up increases?
I once had an older computer on which I was running Windows XP. Sometimes that machine started to slow down unbearably to the point where even after a fresh reboot, it would still be extremely sluggish. It could several minutes for the machine to boot up and let me actually do anything. So I went out and bought a new computer with the fastest microprocessor at the time, the maximum amount of RAM, and a more-than-adequate hard drive.
Lo and behold, this brand new computer began to slow down just like the old one within a few weeks, much to my lament. Then later on I discovered a little secret: My Windows registry was corrupt.
Yes, there is this one often-overlooked feature of the Windows operating system known as the Windows registry, which is basically the master database of every piece of hardware that compresses your machine, every piece of software that is installed on your machine, various aspects of your operating system and your applications' configuration and behavior. Windows relies on this database for everything and is constantly reading from and writing to this database. Over time, this database can grow to be very large, on the order of hundreds of megabytes, if left unchecked. It can become bloated and unoptimized. Referential integrity errors can start creeping into the database. As you install and uninstall programs, download and run programs from the Internet, and as you use your applications, it is inevitable that some level of database corruption can occur.
Occasionally, if left unchecked, this unoptimized state can result in Windows running slow and even applications crashing. Unfortunately, Windows does not ship with a registry repair utility. Fortunately, there are many third-party Windows registry cleaners on the market that can give your PC a new lease on life.
By optimizing your registry, your PC will experience a significant performance boost, and you can finally be more productive!
