Registry Cleaners: Snake Oil or PC Panacea?

Registry Cleaners: Snake Oil or PC Panacea?

Learn why your PC may actually run dramatically slower if you only clean the registry.

Many people report advertisements for so-called “registry cleaners” popping up all over the web these days. These cleaner-programs are cleverly positioned as the one-click cure to any number of creative computer ailments, from general annoyances to outright machine failure.

Savvy iolo customers routinely inquire about registry cleaners. The answer is simple: Yes, cleaning the registry is an important part of overall PC maintenance, but it is far from a complete solution, and by no means the cure-all it has been made out to be lately (acai berry anyone?).
More importantly, iolo Labs testing has shown that only cleaning your registry can actually make your PC slower than before, because the cleanup process fails to account for the bloat and fragmentation left over after removing orphaned data. Without a total solution, your registry just becomes a larger block of swiss cheese with more holes each time you clean it.

After just one cleanup, the Windows registry can be left full of
holes
, fragmentation, and wasted space, resulting in dramatic
performance degradation if not addressed.

Total Registry Revitalizer™: A complete registry maintenance method

If cleaning the registry is only one of a series of steps required for total registry health, what else is required?
Here’s how the complete process should look:
Locate Registry Problems
The registry is scanned for a variety of problems. Any errors,
corruption, or orphaned data is identified and diagnosed.
Remove Registry Problems
All registry problems are removed and cleaned, leaving an
error-free registry but with new bloat and fragmentation
caused by holes left over from cleaning.
Remove Fragmentation and Bloat
The registry is compacted and defragmented, eliminating all
bloat and data entropy so that maximum PC performance
can be achieved.
Back-up Newly Revitalized Registry
The newly revitalized registry is then immediately backed up
to ensure it can be used in the event of disaster or needed
rollback in the future.

Was I born a masochist or did society make me this way? I demand unconditional love and complete freedom. That is why I am terrible.
