Boot-up speed-up

with one comment

Over the past weeks I’ve had more and more trouble booting up the computer—it got slower and slower, and more erratic as well, not all programs working as they should.

I use Roboform Pro to handle form-filling, passwords, and the like, and when I went to get my new update (updates are all free), they were plugging a program called Registry Booster 2. I thought, “Free scan—why not?” and downloaded and installed the freebie. It did the scan, found 535 Registry problems (missing links and the like: each problem specified), and offered to fix 15 of them. So I ponied up the $30 to buy the program, ran it, and fixed all 535 problems.

Amazing! Rapid boot-up once more, and the weird problems have totally vanished. It was worth $30—plus I can run the program now as I want.

UPDATE: I’ve now found that whenever I uninstall a program, the uninstall procedure leaves errors in the registry. So once you have Registry Booster, it’s good to run it periodically. The “defragment registry” operation (in the same program) also seems to help.
