The Microsoft windows registry is an extremely important yet complex component that the operating system cannot do without. It quietly operates behind the scenes yet plays a fundamental towards the day to day running and operation of the computer. It is important because it is through it that Windows store its configuration information concerning all the activities running within the computer. The registry also contains user profiles as well as information about the system hardware, installed programs and property settings. This is essential because the operating system continually references this information during its operation for the smooth running of the computer to be achieved. Despite this important role of the registry, it also handles so much information that if not well and thoroughly optimized or audited on a regular basis, it can tremendously slow down a machine. It is due to such occurrences that you will need to conduct a Microsoft registry repair.
Such a repair will be functional towards the removal of redundant programs that simply clutter the registry database yet play no important role. You can also reconfigure keys that have been corrupted either by malware or system crashes. This then calls for registry repair which is quite easy if you take your time to master the root keys that run the computers programs and activities within the registry. While the process is easy to learn and master, it is also a delicate process whereby a wrong move could spell doom to your operating system. Therefore a lot of precaution must be taken when altering the keys.
If you therefore choose to conduct a Microsoft registry repair and modification manually, the first activity will be to back up all the registry keys and values. Using the REGEDIT tool through the run program, you will be able to access the registry and copy the entire system into a folder that you save with the .reg extension. You can also back up a portion of the registry using the export mechanism by opening a folder where you can get to back up the files. After backing up the data, the next process is to modify the registry entries. Basically you will still use the run method and REGEDIT tool to access the registry keys whereupon opening the database, you right click on the various entries and select the modify option. Just Incase you have to change any path, ensure it is valid before you confirm. Lastly when closing, click OK and exit the registry console.
Finally, people making changes for Microsoft registry repair should also not worry about undoing the changes they have made. This process is also initiated by entering the REGEDIT function on the RUN utility. Thereafter the registry console opens up whereby the first process is to back up the components by exporting a portion of the registry to a safe folder. After backing up, you can select the keys that you want to remove. Still by right clicking you select the delete button and thereafter you exit the registry editor.
