Should you clean your PC registry regularly? Is there any downside to it?
No downside, cleaning registry or drfaging it, it will little boost your PC's performance.
i recommend Tune UP Utilities for this kinda proccess
You clean it regularly only if you uninstall certain programs and have no further use of those entries in the registry related to those uninstalled programs. The downside, which I can think of, is probably wrongly deleting certain entries in the registry which may cause you problems, as some existing installed programs may still use those entries. You need to be careful of what you clean.
Yes, you should do it unless you feel your computer is working slower than normal. I recommend Ccleaner because it's free to use and has hassle free feature. Just some clicks will let you fix your PC's registry within seconds.
I have been using Intel PCs and Windows Operating systems since DOS 6 and Windows 3.1 and I have never had to use a registry cleaner (which came into play with Windows 95).
As long as you're using professional level software (not something questionably coded) there are going to be only a handful of rare instances where you might need to "clean" the registry of remaining applications.
For the most part, if these registry entries are still there they will most likely not interfere with the regular function of the operating system.
If you do have one of those occurrences then you may need to do this but it is not something I would recommend that you do regularly as there is often little need.
So if there is an issue - then do it, otherwise there is no need.
Things that I do regularly recommend are defraging your hard drive, updating your anti-virus software and installing Windows security updates as they are released (second Tuesday of each month).
Yes It must, I have a reg cleaner software in my pc. It cleans the all registry errors from my computer. There is no better registry cleaner than Reg Cleaner.
