    If you are the type who constantly loads and unloads software and games chances are your PC system registry has got a lot of rubbish lying about in it. Manual editing of the registry can be done with Windows RegEdit which is fine for simple edits of a known problem but one false step and your hard drive could become unbootable requiring a complete reformat and install of Windows [and any data on the system drive lost]. The thought of that naturally puts off most people from playing around with the PC's system registry. However if your PC is having a lot of problems loading [very very slow to boot up and a lot of disk chuntering] chances are something unfortunate has happened to the registry and Windows is rummaging about looking for lost links etc... Or do you get frequent unrelated system crashes and a lot of odd cryptic Windows error messages, or is the PC now simply moving at a snails pace?

    A slow system speed might be just because your hard drive needs defragmenting or an error check, so do that first [Goto: Start, Control Panel (category view), Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk management]. Also try deleting 'temporary files' under internet explorer's Tools, Internet Options. Alternatively your system hard drive may simply be full up, as you ideally need at least 25% free space on it, 15% minimum [if so, uninstall games, delete rubbish, and/or get a secondary hard drive]. However if all that doesn't cure the problem it's quite likely that this bit of software, Registry Mechanic 2009, will help. Load the software, register it online [wait for the updates], and run the registry check. It will come up with a load of registry errors, say fix them, wait for the OK, and then restart the PC. Hopefully the computer should now start-up much faster and be more stable.

    The Windows Registry can only too easily become clogged up with unwanted, invalid and orphaned entries which, over time, can severely impact your system's boot time and performance. My own preferred and recommended approach to avoiding these problems is to use a number of freeware programs : CCleaner, a safe, conservative disk and registry cleaner; Revo Uninstaller, which uninstalls unwanted software far more thoroughly and reliably than the Add/Remove Programs tool in Windows XP; and WinPatrol, which amongst other useful functions will monitor the registry for changes, and notify you when these take place. All three of these programs are popular, easy-to-use and regularly updated.

    For those who want to take an even more vigorous approach to registry cleaning, there are numerous programs on the market. Of these, Registry Mechanic is one of the longest established and most respected, having won many press awards and favourable reviews. It is far more aggressive and thorough than CCleaner, but it does offer the option of automatically setting a system restore point inside Windows XP, before you begin. It will optionally monitor your registry for changes, and notify you about them, and it will flag any errors it finds with an estimated level of severity, to assist you in deciding what action to take.

    I've been offered a free copy of Registry Mechanic so I've installed it and used it, and I do appreciate its merits, but on the grounds of time consumption and sheer riskiness, it's unlikely to replace my longstanding maintenance regime. It's only too easy to make very serious mistakes with an aggressive registry cleaner, which can far outweigh any small benefits from more rigorous cleansing.

    Claiming to be the cure for all registry ills and allegedly recommended by experts worldwide, Registry Mechanic is a tool that is supposed to improve the performance and stability of your PC by repairing and optimising your Windows Registry.

    This tool is designed for novice PC users, those who don't understand the Windows Registry and want a magic big button to right all wrongs. Unfortunately, as the experts amongst us know, the registry is a complex beast and over-simplification of a tool of this nature leads the uninitiated down a potentially dangerous path.

    The registry scanner - the heart of the product - takes liberties in assuming what is safe to "repair". I didn't personally risk hitting that "Repair" button at all. A thorough investigation of the rather scant report of repairs that it wanted to perform showed me many examples of changes that it would make that would actually hinder rather than help my PC. The logic which the scanner uses to determine, for example, which files exist and do not exist (and are therefore valid or "invalid" references) is flawed. Had I let it repair these "faults", a number of my applications would actually stop behaving the way they are intended to. Unfortunately the user interface is so poorly designed that deselecting 200 out of 300 suggested repairs (which I know are actually already correct) would be too time consuming. I also couldn't be sure which of the remaining repairs were actually legitimate anyway. Basically, I lost trust very quickly in its estimations of what required attention.

    Given this bad start with the product, I couldn't trust "Compact Your Registry". It would only have shrunk the registry by 2% anyway - certainly not worth the risk.
