Shockingly Simple Solution To A Faster PC Without Errors

Do you remember when you first bought your computer how fast it was? It was blazing fast! It booted up lightning quick and you could multi task to your heart's content: watch numerous YouTube videos, listen to music, browse the web, sync your mobile devices and work in Microsoft Office - all while not experiencing any system slowdown or lag. Fast forward to today. How is that same computer running? Is it as blazing fast as it was the day you bought it? Does it boot up just as fast? Do you lag when watching videos, downloading or opening files? If so, you are not alone. in my opinion the worst thing you can do is consider buying another PC. It just is not necessary. That is very costly and not an effective long term solution for a perfectly good and working PC. What is the solution, you ask? A Registry Cleaner!

Computers and PCs are a lot like cars in terms of maintenance. You drive your car everyday and every 3,000 miles (or 5,000 if you use full synthetic!) you need to change your oil. Every 100,000 miles you need to perform a full bumper-to-bumper inspection of your car and change spark plugs, belts, etc. It is the same with a PC. When you use your PC everyday, your registry becomes cluttered, files become locked, cache files start building up, access violations occur and many other strange effects rear their ugly head. This is due partly to the intensive amount of data when browsing the web and manipulating files but also from poorly developed software that does not install or uninstall the correctly.

Rather than oil changing our computer which would be ridiculous, you need to run a Registry Scan and Repair tool regularly that will routinely dig deep into your computer and analyze your registry, any and all errors that exist on your hard drive and in Windows and fix them. Sounds simple enough, right? That's because it is! It's very much a hands off process - simply scan your computer and let the software diagnose your issues. A registry scanner will scan your PC for file system errors, installed programs error, obfuscated data. It will repair access violations and startup errors. It will optimize your web browsing settings and much more. These taks would take hours to perform manually and would cost you WELL over $375 if you took it to GeekSquad or a similar service. Who has that kind of money to spend just to be able to use a perfectly good and running computer?

Each of the Registry repair programs outlined in the comparison chart I have provided below are a breeze to install and are 100% safe to use on your PC. If you are concerned that you might damage your PC, I can promise you that will not happen with any of the products compared below. I have tested hundreds of registry cleaners over the years and while many can be potentially dangerous to install and use, the products I have selected below are Microsoft Certified (a highly prestigious certification) and I tested each and every program extensively across Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 under the most sluggish and damaged Windows operating systems and they all performed exceptionally well and did NOT damage any of the computers. In fact, the software returned all of the damaged computers to fully working condition! I sold a few of them on eBay for a good profit, actually.

The most important thing to remember is to be proactive in keeping your computer efficient and up to date to ensure it is performing to it maximum potential. All of the products below offer options that will regularly scan your PC for errors. I highly recommend you enable this feature. You wouldn't browse the web without a virus scanner would you? Absolutely not! In my opinion, same rules apply for scanning your pc for registry errors and other common ailments that inevitably build up behind-the-scenes on your computer.

I have taken the time to outline my experience with the best and safest registry cleaners available today. Each and every one of the programs in the list offers a completely free scan that will diagnose and repair your problems in minutes. Not only that but each program is certified by Microsoft, ensuring that the software is safe to run and direct from the developer. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to post a comment in the thread. I will do my best to answer any questions you guys may have.

Good luck and happy computing on a faster computer!

PS - If you want to skip the comparison chart below, my personal recommendation would be Speedy PC Pro. Out of all the tests I performed, it routinely stood out from the rest of the pack in terms of registry repair, performance increases and fixing of errors and access violations. You can begin your immediate scan by clicking here. Simply click "Run" when the file downloads to begin scanning and repairing your PC.

Great report, David. I have been super frustrated with how slow my PC has been lately so I took your suggestion and tried Speedy PC Pro 2012 and boy is my PC running fast. I'm not very computer literate but I got through it without a hitch.

I've been running Speedy PC Pro regularly for years. Keeps me computer running silky smooth :)

Speedy PC Pro is good but I actually am a huge fan of RegTool 2012. I read about it in PC Magazine, it was a recommended program. It has done wonders for my work laptop. It was so sluggish before but now it runs "BLAZING fast" (to quote david =p). cheers

yah, definetely should be scanning your pc regularly. my sister didn't and she HAD to buy a new computer for $850 because her hard drive was so damaged from not properly scanning the computer on a regular basis. my recipe for succes? nod32 anti virus, spy sweeper and RegistryBooster.

Speedy PC rocks. Unbeatable technology and fastest scanner in my opinion. Couldn't live without it.

Ive had good luck with PC Health Advisor personally. It includes a kickass driver scanner. I'm not guru, I don't know how to install drivers so it is nice to have that feature. Anytime I get a new device, PC Health Advisor automatically syncs the drivers. LOL i sound like a techie!!

I agree, PC Health Advisor is a great piece of technology. Has saved me from breaking many keyboards :)

I was actually looking at new PCs online today. I'm at my witts end with my computer. It's so slow and I am constantly getting weird errors. Ugh! I am going to give this a try and report back. Which should I run? I guess i'll try Speedy PC and PC Health Advisor and see which works better.

Posted by: Mary | Wed, January 17, 2018
WOW!!!!!! I ran Speedy PC Pro and I am shocked. MY PC IS BACK TO NORMAL!! I can't beleive this. It was really really easy to install and scan. Took just a couple minutes and when it was done I rebooted. When I started back up I didn't get any errors and I was able to start programs quickly. I haven't been able to do this in years. I'm so excited I can't wait to do the same on my husbands PC so he can stop complaining!

@mary - Thanks for letting us know how it worked for you! I am always weary of software. I took a leap of faith after reading your wonderful review and I am happy to say that I experienced the same results. I still can't over how the errors are gone and my computer is quicker. God bless!

My computer has been running slow. I downloaded all of the programs on this page. All the programs worked great. I ended up going with Speedy PC Pro. I contact their tech support and got an answer in minutes. Can't beat that!

Just stumbled onto this article from the cnn website. Very help article. I, too am a victim of a slow computer. Or should I say WAS a victim!
