How Do I Fix My PC Because It Keeps Crashing

by @ 8:35 pm. Filed under PC Repair Tools

If you’ve got a PC that keeps crashing, has become slow or it keeps giving you unexplained errors then you’re not alone because this is what happens to all Windows PC’s after they’ve been used for some time.

This problem often results from a lack of system maintenance and maintenance of the Registry in particular. The Windows Registry is a database that holds information about everything in your computer from hardware and drivers to applications. It’s the very heart of a Windows PC and it controls everything about your machine from what application to use to play DVD’s to which image to display as your wallpaper. Just imagine what could go wrong if this Registry database gets corrupted!

Every time you install an application, add hardware or install a driver, information is deposited in the Registry to tell the system how to use the new device. If you uninstall something then often some information gets left behind in the Registry.

After continual use the Registry can grow in size and become riddled with errors where things have happened on your system that the Registry doesn’t know about. This can slow your machine down, throw unexplained error messages and crash your system. If you’re unlucky it can even render your system useless and the only way to recover from it is to reload Windows.

Now the last thing you want to do is mess with the Registry yourself unless you know exactly what you’re doing but there is software available that will do the job nicely for you. Read more about this in the article How do I repair my computer because it keeps crashing on me
