Surfing the internet for a free registry cleaner and deciding which one is the best for your system, might be a complicated task. This is because there are too many options online and most websites and reviews are biased, depending which product or products they are affiliated with.

The Windows registry holds very important information and settings for Microsoft 32-bit and 64-bit Windows, plus Windows Mobile. It contains data for all system and application software, hardware and user settings of the computer. Whenever we make any changes, whether by installing new software, deleting applications, changing file associations and so on, all is reflected in the Windows registry. Cleaning and optimization will be a must.

Because of its importance, editing manually or otherwise the registry should not be taken lightly. Unless you are very technical and have good knowledge how the registry works and what it should and should not include, it's not advisable to edit it. There are many registry cleaner software solutions online to choose from, however you should be very careful when deciding which one to download and use. A free registry cleaner will never give you all the tools to optimize a Windows registry completely. They are just crap cleaners and although useful, you cannot defrag your registry, which is one of the most important optimizations. Using a completely free registry cleaner, might be more costly in the long run, because you can even stall your system, loose important data and will need to repair your computer.

Firstly, you should choose a software company that is a Microsoft Partner. All top rated and best registry cleaners will also offer a free download and scan so that you can test the product and see if it's to your liking. It's very important to check whether you can take a backup of your registry before repairing it. This way, if you encounter any problems after fixing the registry can revert back to previous settings. Make sure the company selling the product, offers customer support too and check out the various reviews of the registry cleaner and company online.
