The Importance of Windows Registry

IT Security Column would like to launch another series and this time is more towards the Windows Registry Awareness Campaign. I had completed the URL investigation and prevention series few weeks back and it had been great to get some feedback from my reader. Basically, this time I will bring on the Windows Registry as I am sure many of us take the Windows Registry lightly where it is some piece of component that is not important at all to everyone.

Windows Registry is a BIG Deal

However, that is not completely true because Windows Registry indeed is extremely important. Having an well optimized Windows Registry can boost your computer performance, security, system start up, reduce your PC lag or hang and also it can prevent any unnecessary Blue Screen of Death.

Windows Registry is not something small in your operating system where it will not be able to cover in a single post of less than 500 words. As a result, I will split into 4 important chapters and 1 premium chapter specially for my newsletter subscribers only.

Inside the 4 chapters in this series, I will cover from the fundamental of what the Windows Registry is and further explained on how it can affect your performance and also security. Lastly, in order to convince you into cleaning your Windows Registry, I further add on 15 reasons for you to do so. If you are my newsletter subscribers, I will personally send to you a piece of newsletter on how to pick a Registry Cleaner when you are shopping for one after the end of the series.

    The most common reason for a computer speed to be decreased is an overloaded windows registry. Your computer will “thank you” if you perform windows registry cleaning regularly. I’m using one of the best windows registry cleaner in RegCure, it has been doing a good job so far.
