Clean up Windows® 7 Registry
What are the guidelines for cleaning up registry of your Windows 7 system?
Windows based Operating Systems are very popular mainly because they are simple to use and light on system resources. Windows 7 is the latest Operating System from Microsoft. This OS is packed with many features such as Windows Aero, Windows Defender, Windows Gadgets and so on. Windows 7 is also far more stable and secure than any other version of Windows OS. Like other Operating Systems, even Windows 7 has a registry. Registry on your Windows 7 system is the place where all important information regarding the working of the system is stored and accessed when required. Registry entries are created automatically and they would remain within the system. This implies that over time as the system is used, registry entries tend to increase to great numbers and they would clash with each other. Registry clutters within your Windows 7 system can cause many problems such as system freeze, blue screen errors, restart issues and so on. The unwanted registry clutters in your PC can be cleaned with the help of some software utilities. Some of them include RegCure, CleanMy PC Registry cleaner, registry mechanic, Registry booster etc.

Create data backup
As registry is an important area on your Windows 7 system, problems when modifying registry can cause issues such as startup problems. Therefore it is always suggested that all important data on the system is backed up before cleaning the registry.
