There are a lot of registry cleaners on the market right now, but only a few which can flawlessly clean out all the problems in XP. This is a big task which many cleaners simply can't handle. We've used all the most popular ones and have found one particular cleaner which works very well in XP.
XP might be a few years old, but it's still one of the most popular operating systems in the world. Unfortunately, many of its millions of devoted users (including me) have to put up with the problems cause by the 'registry'. The registry is a big database that sits in the background of Windows, storing all sorts of settings and options for your computer. It acts as a big "memory" for your PC, allowing it to store everything from your latest emails to your desktop wallpaper, even when your computer is turned off and on again.
Introduced in Windows '98, the registry is one of the most important and crucial parts of XP, which is hardly ever seen. However it's one of the biggest causes of problems for your computer. Because the registry is such an important part of your computer, 100's of registry files are being used each time you use your PC. This is okay, but unfortunately, XP is prone to get confused, saving many of these files in the wrong way, making them corrupt and damaged. When this happens, these files become incredibly difficult to read, making XP take longer and longer to process them, slowing it down and causing many errors.
To fix this problem, registry cleaners were invented. These software tools scan all the registry files on your system and fix any of the damaged ones they find, speeding up your PC and making it more reliable. However, there are only a few registry tools which actually work well on XP. The problem is that most registry cleaners are simply not powerful enough to deal with all the problems the XP registry has, meaning that they just try and remove as many files as possible, which can cause VERY serious problems on your computer.
Having used all the most popular cleaners on our XP machines, we've found that one stands out as being very effective. It's called "RegAce" and was the most effective cleaner we used for XP. It was only released in early 2009, but has quickly become one of the most popular registry cleaners on the Internet, thanks to its effectiveness. It has several unique features which make this cleaner one of the best, including an advanced scanning engine (which finds and fixes even the most rare of problems) and a complete backup facility (which protects your PC from any damage that might happen).
