About RegistryBooster

The registry is central to the health of your computer as it contains essential hardware and software instructions that need to be accessed continuously. While a new computers registry is clean and structured, with use, particularly through software removal and changes in settings and hardware, bad or useless entries start to accumulate. Furthermore, data can start to fragment with once contiguous registry instructions breaking up into multiple locations. The result is a loss in system efficiency with system slowdowns, errors and conflicts. RegistryBooster improves your PC by optimizing your registry in two distinct ways. After scanning for obsolete and harmful entries, RegistryBooster will clean and fix your registry, removing errors and improving your computers processing efficiency. RegistryBooster can also defragment your registry by re-ordering instructions for contiguity. With a cleaned-up and defragmented registry your computer will speed along, experiencing fewer errors and better performance.

3. Cleaning the registry

To clean your registry, the program must be guided through a scanning and then a fixing process.

3.1

Scanning

To start a registry scan, go to the Overview tab from the navigation panel and click on the Start scan button. RegistryBooster will conduct a deep scan of your registry, checking for errors and useless entries. Once the scan has finished, the program will shift to the Latest scan results page and display the number of errors found per registry section. For a more finely itemized list, click on the registry section name, shown in blue and underlined. You can also choose to see every individual error in full detail by clicking on the Detailed view button at the bottom right of the screen.

3.2

Fixing

To start the fix process, click on the Fix errors button at the bottom right of the screen. The program will, as a safety precaution, back up your registry before proceeding to fix. When the fix process has finished, RegistryBooster will display, as registry clean up results, the number of errors found and the number of errors cleaned.

3.3

Using the Ignore list

Through the Ignore list, you can choose to omit particular registry entries from the scan and fix process In order to add an entry to the Ignore list, first access the detailed view of the scan results by clicking on Detailed view from the Scan results page. Every registry entry identified as an error will be listed individually. Right click on the entry you would like to put into the Ignore list and, from the popup menu, click on Add to Ignore list. Alternatively you can add sections of your registry to the list directly by accessing the Registry scan screen and then choosing Ignore list from the left-hand side menu. Select Add new entry from the bottom of the screen and you will be given the option to specify the path of the registry entry you would like to omit. As this process requires a level of registry knowhow, it is only recommended for advanced users.

3.4

Defragmenting

To defragment your registry, select Registry Scan from the navigation panel and then, from the left hand side menu, select Registry defrag. To start the defragmentation process, click on the Defrag registry button on the bottom right of the screen. Note that the defragmentation process may take a few minutes during which time applications running concurrently may slow down. It is important not to quit RegistryBooster during defragmentation as this could damage your registry.

4. Restoring the registry

For maximum safety, RegistryBooster takes a partial backup of your registry, automatically, every time you fix it. This backup can be resorted to if, for any reason, you ever want to restore a previous version of your registry. Note that RegistryBooster does not take a full backup of your registry. The partial backup only includes the sections of the registry set to be acted upon by the RegistryBooster fix process. To restore your registry, choose the Restore tab from the navigation panel. Any registry backups will be listed together with the date and time that they were set. Click on the registry backup you would like to resort to and click on the Restore button on the bottom right of the screen. Once the registry has been restored, you will need to restart your computer for the changes to take effect.
