Liz Cornwell here again and I’m the Auslogics community manager. In this email I’ll answer the most frequently asked questions.
Question 1: Why doesn’t my computer run as fast as it did when it was new?
Answer: When you use your computer, you create files, install software, browse the Web and do a lot of other stuff. Windows works in such a way that pretty much everything you do creates temporary files and writes into the Windows registry. As time goes by, some registry entries become corrupted, temporary files don’t get deleted, and the list of programs launching on Windows boot grows. All this clutter makes your computer slow.
Question 2: Why does the registry keep getting corrupted?
Answer: The registry is a very complicated database that contains hundreds of entries. Every time you uninstall or update software, update your drivers, or even simply update Windows, registry entries are updated as well. Sometimes things go wrong and the registry gets updated incorrectly. As a result, some registry entries become corrupted or empty. A good registry cleaner can fix this.
Question 3: How to get rid of unwanted bloatware?
Answer: Getting rid of bloatware is easy – you just need the right tools. To remove junk files and other debris, simply run disk cleanup, registry cleanup, remove unneeded startup entries, uninstall software you don’t use (like expired trial software), and finally use a duplicate file finder to get rid of duplicate files.
Question 4: How do I make my PC boot faster?
Answer: There are many ways to make your PC boot faster, but the easiest one is to remove unnecessary startup entries. You can use a startup manager to view the list of programs running on system startup and disable things like IM programs, toolbars, launchers, and players.
Question 5: How to remove remnants of old programs that were uninstalled in the past?
Answer: Leftovers from uninstalled programs are easy to remove. Just run a registry cleaner to get rid of empty keys and missing references and then go to your Program Files folder and remove empty folders (hover your mouse pointer over the folders and delete the ones that have 0 byte size).
Once again, thank you for your questions.
