    Can anyone suggest any good Registry cleaners that I should look into downloading etc? I'd prefer free ones but if there aren't any good enough i'll look into purchasing a prog or d/ling it off the net :0

    Because Registers are faster then any other memory and my performance is a bit low

    omg...registers are not the same as registry.

    Registers are hardware, registry is software.

    You should stay away from registry cleaners as they are known to fuck shit up.

    Registers are bits of RAM inside the CPU used to store variables for the CPU to use in equations and logical decisions. The Registry is a database inside Windows that stores program settings and whatnot. Totally different things.

    Registry cleaners can be used successfully and safely, but they require a keen eye and a cautious index finger -- deleting old settings that you know used to belong to a program you don't use anymore is fine, deleting anything you don't recognize is a huge mistake. Never use the automatic setting on any Registry cleaner, because the programmers that made the Registry cleaner can't possibly know what all of the crap in your Registry is being used for -- they have to guess whether to make the cleaner delete each kind of setting, or leave it alone, and they're wrong about 50% of the time.

    Running Disk Cleanup and then defragmenting your hard drive will accomplish a lot for you, I'm guessing, based on your apparent level of knowledge. When you run Disk Cleanup, delete all the files it finds, but don't use the option to "Compress Old Files"; compressing files saves space, but it takes longer to use the files because they have to be uncompressed the next time you open them.

    Consider investing in some extra RAM; www.oempcworld.com can tell you what kind of RAM your computer uses, as long as it's a brand-name PC.
