No.1 Clustered registry:
(Solution : Clean and optimize your registry time to time.)
You might not be knowing that your Windows registry keeps growing while you use your computer. It continuously records all the information and changes of software, hardware and system settings.

After starting the program, click on “Click Here to Scan Registry” and the program will automatically scan for all the invalid and obsolete registry items. When the scan is completed, you can choose the ones to repair or just click “Repair” to clean them all.
Registry Defrag can optimize your registry by removing the registry holes and rebuilding the registry structure.
