When you install or uninstall programs, the registry files are created or modified. The registry file should be removed automatically when a program is uninstalled, but some software developer won’t add necessary code to delete the registry files. Over time, the Registry can become cluttered with missing, invalid or broken entries as you install, upgrade, and uninstall software. Cleaning the registry also increase computer performance by removing unused entries or programs that use system memory or cause system crashes due to incorrect directories and missing files.
Due to the sheer size and complexity of the registry database, manually cleaning up redundant and invalid entries may be impractical, thus the registry cleaner become an essential tool to automate the process of looking for invalid entries, missing file references or broken links within the registry and resolving or removing them for better computer performance.
