Many computer users believe in using registry cleaners / speed up my pc / pc tools and other sorts of computer ” optimisation ” tools that will somehow miraculously improve their computer by removing redundant registry entries or for the average user offer a promise that it will “speed up your computer”.
It just voodoo , a bit like when you get your car cleaned you feel that it drives quicker.
Here is the warning.
- If you play with your registry , back it up before running the registry cleaner because if things go wrong you maybe able to restore your registry.
- There is a chance that you can remove a registry key that will make your computer work and or boot , the worst possible scenario is that you will have to format your hard drive and reload your operating system.
Do they speed up your computer , well in my opinion NO.
