A question often debated in tech circles is whether Registry cleaner is necessary or not? It is important to understand the function of Windows registry before to know if a cleaner is at all required to fix problems.

To answer the question posed in the beginning, registry problems are not severe enough to be solved or fixed. The abundance of registry cleaner programs though citing registry problems as major issues due to which the computer functioning slowly is a complete hoax.

One would question further- why do these programs exist? The existence is majorly due to the unversed nature of the topic. Most people do not know about the Windows registry and what is the actual function. Above all, the problems which really exist with registries have very few genuine cleaners to address the issue.

First and foremost, a registry cleaner is a software program that conducts scans on the registry to sort out those entries which are useless and merely occupy space. The cleaner would simply then flash them on your screen in decreasing order of importance. Followed by this, the cleaner asks for permission to permanently delete such entries. A very straightforward process, ain't it? Well, this is what is fed by mainstream articles propagating registry cleaners usage.

The efficacy of a cleaner depends on how well it performs this task. The registries need cleaning but a registry cleaner can only fix a certain type of problem. There are categories like obsolete software, application paths, unused file extensions, etc. On picking one such category, the cleaner would scan the PC for registry issues related to them and present the redundant files.

The cleaner always gives you an opportunity to decide what should be deleted and doesn't take that decision automatically. The registry cleaner would even ask the user to do a backup and after the scan is completed provide an elaborate summary of the work that has been done. Registry cleaners, however, can be quite multi-dimensional and even carry out several other operations naturally performed by a PC cleaner.

A registry cleaner demands to be run not on a regular basis and is not one of the maintenance tasks associated with PCs. It is unnecessary and cleaning multiple times wouldn't create new registries in need of deletion. It would only mean wasting precious time and also unnecessarily ruffling your computer. It is not like defragmentation which can be done very often but a sensitive area that demands special attention.

Registry cleaner programs essentially get rid of error messages about missing files, that mostly appear as Windows startup. If at all registry cleaning would have been that significant a problem, then Windows itself would have introduced a cleaner. It is because of the thousands of listed problems, only a tiny fraction require attention and they too, do not cause huge inconvenience.

Now when you are aware of the real deal about registry cleaners, be sure to choose only a certified cleaner if necessary and do not fall for false claims. Commercial cleaners with extra features also work the same as free ones without much difference.
