"Speed up" PC registry software


nate

Recommended Posts

Again, a flawed test posted as truth on the internet. The guy said a fresh install but reinstalling Windows does not wipe the computer, it just installs the software over the top of the mess you already have.

 

Now if he had said he wiped the entire boot drive by reformatting and then installed Windows from a factory copy and not a rescue disk made by the reseller, then I could believe he didn't have a bunch of bugs in his system to start with.

 

Registries get clogged up with more crap from all of the clean programs people decide they need like iTunes or worse McAfee or Norton. You don't need some wormy trogan to slow your computer down, just look at your boot record to see just how many programs you trust decide they have to preload at startup, including how many are looking for updates without being asked to. That is what kills most computer speed.

That's why I use CCleaner.  It's free, cleans my registry.  Cleans all the porn sites I visited.  Wipes the free space on my HD.  And I can easily set what programs I want to startup.  And if I get defraggler from the same company, again free, I can defrag my drive.

The first slide says he did a fresh install of windows.  The only time registry data would be kept is if it was an upgrade from an older OS.

Trogans don't hide in registries, they populate in them. Wiping Windows does not mean you have removed where the trogan is nestled into the system and once a reboot (which Windows does several time on install) takes place the malicious software repopulates.

 

Looks like you a good candidate for owning a Mac.

It also depends on how he reinstalled windows.  If he also updated it, say from win 7 to service pack 1, that will be where a lot of registry errors will occur, I believe.  Because windows will keep adding to the registry with new programs, executables etc, but never delete them.  Even with a fresh install of windows, I believe there are a lot of registry errors, just because of the crap that windows puts on that 90% of the users won't use.

That is not a fresh install of windows.  I am an expert.  I have been building, repairing and programming on computers professionally for 15 years.

 

A fresh install implies that it is a brand new partition and a brand new windows installation.  Not an upgrade like you pictured.

Nate, you may be an expert but you are assuming this guy posting pics of his screen is as well. There is no evidence that he actually did a complete data wipe before install, nor evidence that he didn't protect his files or restore from a backup disk files that could have been corrupt. You only have a few screen shots of what he let you see.

 

But if you want to prove to us that he is right then please take the time to recreate the test properly then post the results.

Finaly got home to download your test results and it looks like you came up with the same error messages.

 

Also, as Mrwicked alluded to, Finallyfast.com was sued in Washington selling scareware (their discription) software that always found severe problems no matter what the condition of the computer being scanned.

 

So, when do you sue them?
