When Not to Use a Registry Cleaner
Registry Cleaners – When Not to Use
I often get asked whether or not to use a Registry cleaner for PC optimization. Well, obviously the answer is yes, because Registry cleaning is an important aspect for anyone that wants great performance.
But there are times when a Registry cleaner will do jack.
Sometimes a user will email me, telling how they downloaded this Registry cleaner and now their computer is even slower. Well, 9 times out of 10, the problem is Spyware or a virus. Unfortunately a Registry cleaner will not remove Spyware, Viruses or Malware. A Registry cleaner can remove some of the Registry entries created by these programs, but if the Malware is not fully removed, it will keep recreating itself in the Registry.
So you can run the cleaner and you won’t see any performance gains. Some Spyware and Malware can take hold of your system and slow it to a halt. Quite often it is hard to know that the problem is Malware and the only proven method is to run a Malware/Spyware removal tool. This should be a regular part of any users maintenance schedule.
Malware and Viruses are so common these days that we all need protection. You can scan your PC via the link below, with XoftSpy. This product is not all that well known, but it performs better than many of the major, more expensive software.
