The registry mainly contains the information that is generally required to configure the operating system for different applications, hardware devices and also mainly for the users. As soon as user uninstalls the programs, it soon results in the registry accumulation. After that, the registry accumulates much data which is generally no longer remain linked with settings, applications, and files. This accumulated data is known as redundant data. Redundant data may generally result in the loss of system performance and also may cause different kind of errors. These consequences can be removed by cleaning the registry on a regular basis.
For the removal of the redundant data manually, a registry organizer has all the tools. However, most users do not know the actual structure of the registry and cannot do it well. If the user removes it manually, it takes a lot of time. Therefore the manual removing process is a time taking process. Hence, an efficient Register Organizer has all the required quality and he/she able to clean the registry automatically. The program is can easily clean the registry by scanning it, detecting and removing of all redundant data present there. This process doesn’t require any user interference. Users always need to run the system express check before this procedure starts.
System Express Check
As soon as the user runs the Register Organizer, the system express check starts automatically. For the manual operation, user can also initiate this by making selection of Run System Express Check, present on the Tools menu. The program starts checking all the physical and logical structure of the registry and the file system. The program shows all the problems present there, as soon as the process finishes and offers many problem solving solutions. These problem solving solutions includes starting a defragmentation, fixing or deleting all the redundant data’s, and also provide invalid references and shortcuts needed for a file. User can start automatic correction of all the problems from the window with results of the check, only if he/she agrees with the verdict.
Generally the program scans only main parts of the registry, during the express check process. This scanning accumulates the redundant data more often than anywhere else. Due to this, the results of the express checking are not as exhaustive as results of the automatic registry checking. For removal of all redundant data’s and complete analysis of the registry, user needs to use the Automatic Registry Cleanup tool in Register Organizer, or clean the entire registry manually.
Manually Process for Cleaning the Registry
For displaying viewing and editing results, the Manual Registry Cleanup tool generally extracts the required information from all important parts of the registry automatically. OS performance depends upon the different parts of the registry which are responsible for different aspects. For example, Software Records all the lists applications which are being registered in the system. User can generally view and edit applications, suggested by the system when they are trying to open a file the in the unknown format, by using ‘Open With…’ menu. The program automatically creates a backup copy, as soon as the user deletes the data by using this tool. User can roll back all the changes by restoring data from a backup, in case of error occurrence.
The Manual Registry Cleanup tool generally consists of the left-side panel where user can make selection of a part of the registry and can list information on the selected part in the right area of the window. User can click on the parts on the Registry Parts panel, to open the part he/she wants to wish. The information of this would be displayed in the right area of the window.
User can see the Search box in the top right area of the window. As soon as the user starts making or entering a word into the box, the program automatically narrows down the list of the items that match the user’s entry. User could find any entry instantly, without having to scroll down the entire list of entries by using the Search Box.
The program automatically detects erroneous entries. This makes easy for the user to remove all redundant data’s. Also, the red exclamation mark present in the entries, helps to distinguish the entries from standard items.
There is a small message panel displaying information on the selected registry part at the bottom of the Manual Registry Cleanup window. With the help of this, user can be able to see the number of all erroneous elements and the total number of entries in the part.
For grouping registry entries by different criteria, the Manual Registry Cleanup tool could be used. For this process, user needs to use the Groups button present on the toolbar. The most important is grouping by correctness that lists all erroneous records on top of the list so that user could see all problems instantly. After that user could remove or edit an erroneous entry immediately.
Entries could also be grouped by age. User can use this option, for keeping tracks of all the new entries in the registry, also helps in including applications, new file extension, and new autorun items.
Automatic Process for Cleaning the Registry
As the name implies automatic, means no user interference. The process of Automatic cleaning of the registry involves many operations that are being performed without any user interference. The tools present here automatically analyses all parts of the registry, helps in generating results, and fixing errors, if the user decides to do so. A Register Organizer allows the user to select parts of the registry and entries to be excluded from the registry scan and configure other settings, for the better control over the process.
Generally for the fresher’s and the beginners, a Registry Organizer offers a step-by-step wizard to make it easy for them to cleaning up the registry. As soon as the automatic registry cleaning process is started, the program analyses all parts of the registry and starts detecting those that have problems. After that user could be able to fix problems automatically, or view a more detailed report, and then decide what to do. A user can cancel all the changes made by the Automatic Registry Cleanup tool.
