Which registry optimizer can make Windows 7 stable, fast and

by zandalex413 / October 21, 2009 4:00 PM PDT

Windows 7 is coming, thus, we can find the information about Windows 7 is full of the Web these days. And I just heard many questions about: is Windows 7 safe? Is it stable and fast?

However, as most media says, Windows 7 is much better than Windows Vista, windows 7 runs much faster than vista, takes up less resource, brand new task bar, automatically detects drivers, etc. surely Windows 7 is the best alternative for vista.

I been using lots of registry cleaner on window 7. In my opinion the best way to keep it running fast is a combination of Ashampoo 6 and tune-up utilities 2009 with disk keeper 2009. This really help me keep W7 running fast and clean. Hope it help you too.

None. All of them can do the exact OPPOSITE of that however.

Just do yourself a favor and forget you ever heard of the Windows registry. This isn't a personal attack, just the honest, blunt truth. You have absolutely no need to ever concern yourself with the registry. Your system will actually likely perform better if you STOP messing with it.

Also, since the only way you could have gotten a legal copy of the RTM release of Win7 is if you had a MSDN subscription, which would likely put you in a class of users who knows better than to run registry cleaners/fixers/optimizers/defragmenters, your problem could very well stem from the pirated copy of the Win7 software you have. Those cracking programs to get around the activation and WGA checks... What do you suppose is stopping someone from including a little extra something into those programs? It could also be the multitude of file sharing programs you likely have installed, or you could have picked up a bunch of malware somewhere along the way. Plenty of things can contribute to performance entropy on computers, not the least of which is the mental bar being raised. You become accustomed to some level of performance, and that becomes the new "normal".

But to get back to your original question. You use registry fixers/optimizers/cleaners/defragmenters at your own peril, and by using them you really only prove the saying about there being one born every minute.

Registry cleaner already?
by MarkFlax Forum moderator / October 22, 2009 6:47 AM PDT

Windows 7 has only been out a day or two.

I see no reason for any registry cleaner/optimiser yet.

In fact, I agree with Jimmy. Stay away from them.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
