Cleaning Windows registry

The registry is a hidden part of Windows where your applications and the system store their settings. In particular, when you install an application, it adds a new registry entry containing information about an app version, its location, launch details, and so on. However, after applications or settings get changed or deleted, their outdated entries often remain in the registry. And, as the number of invalid entries is growing, your computer may behave incorrectly. 

The Registry Maintenance module of CleanMyPC easily resolves these issues. This module treats your registry carefully and finds only old or broken entries of your apps that could potentially interfere with the system or other applications. The registry cleanup is completely safe and doesn't affect your applications, operating system, and hardware. On the contrary, it may speed up some processes on your PC and resolve cases, for example, of incorrect app functioning or system errors.
