The Windows registry is a central database of information needed to configure your computer system for general settings and preferences, software applications, and hardware drivers and devices. Keeping your registry in a good state of repair and conducting regular maintenance is imperative because the registry contains important data that is used all the time during system operation. The registry is a centralised hierarchical database used by various versions of Windows (MS Windows 9x, CE, NT, 2000 XP and Vista) to store computer configuration information. This information is necessary for Windows to run your computer system including all your installed applications and hardware devices. Not only does the registry save the path and location of these items, it also retains other details which help the processor to locate applications and hardware devices quickly and efficiently thereby reduce decreasing processing time. Records are kept of each and every item present
Registry Booster allows you to take a backup of the registry before repairing it. Once your registry is scanned and Registry Booster shows you the Scan Results, click on the Create Backup Button: Registry Booster is designed to reorganize the data within your registry so that your computer runs more efficiently. Registry fragmentation is a similar phenomenon as fragmented hard drives.
Your computer will slot new pieces of data in empty areas of your registry. If the file is too big for the slot, your computer will break it up and put a piece in one slot and another elsewhere. This creates gaps, wasted space and increase the probability of corruption of your registry.
By defragging your registry, Registry Booster will create a more linear structure maximising application response times and registry access times, saving memory (smaller registries consume less memory), and enhanced boot-up times. This results in improved system performance and decreases the probability of registry corruption.
