Windows Registry Errors

Friday, November 30th, 2007


How do Registry Errors Occur?

Any application that does not uninstall properly, or does not have an uninstaller, can leave entries in the Windows Registry. These can build up over time, and lead to decreased system performance and stability. Furthermore, in most cases, uninstalling a program on one user account will not remove the Registry entries in every other user’s account configurations. As such, even if users follow the correct procedures for removing software, the Registry can become bloated over time, with loose ends and traces of old programs hindering productivity. This is a major cause of Windows Registry Errors.

Windows Registry Repair

An expanded explanation of the warning about making changes to the Windows Registry is necessary. Most of the information contained in the Registry is essential to Windows running smoothly and correctly—as such, changing or deleting values can cause your computer to stop running altogether. The HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE section is a specific point of failure – damage to this part of the registry can render a Windows system unbootable. In extreme cases the damage is irreversible, and a full reinstall of the operating system is required. Another important thing to remember is that changes made to the Registry are immediate—it is not a Word document with an Undo feature allows the user to reverse changes before they Save.

Windows Vista Registry

In Microsoft’s most recent operating system release, Windows Vista, an attempt has been made to address many of the pitfalls of the interaction between the Registry, users and software. In Vista, the Registry has been Virutalized in an attempt to reduce system inflation that can reduce performance. Virtualization basically means that applications are prevented from writing to system folders in file system, and also to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE in the Registry. It achieves this through User Account Controls, which redirect attempts to modify machine-wide keys to user-specific locations. However, the Registry is still such a critical and sensitive component that it must be dealt with care and caution.
