The Microsoft Windows registry is a collection of all the configuration settings for your PC and most of the applications such as Microsoft Word and Excel.
The registry holds all the important details about each user configuration, what your Windows desktop looks like, how programs save their data and a thousand other settings.
The main purpose of the registry is to avoid having hundreds or even thousands of configuration files for all manner of programs and hardware. All the major settings are held in one place, this makes it easier for software developers to configure their settings in one place and easier for computer professionals to configure computers.
However, if all the settings are in the registry then problems in the registry (file corruption, invalid settings, lost files) can affect the whole PC. You can see your PC slow down, programs crashing or freezing and even the famous blue screen of death is a possibility.
We recommend you use a registry cleaning program to identify and fix registry errors.
There are 2 main ways to solve registry errors such as the blu-ray error shown below.
The first approach is to manually edit the registry to repair the error. This requires in depth knowledge of the Windows registry to do safely and typically only computer professionals would attempt this. In fact many PC professionals leave the registry well alone and would use our second approach.
The other way to solve registry errors is to use Windows registry repair software from a certified Microsoft developer. This approach has you install a free to download program (a registry tool) which automatically scans, detects and repairs registry errors on your PC.
This safe approach actually helps prevent some registry errors in the first place by identifying issues such as missing file links before they become a regular problem.
Both approaches do work but for the general PC user, installing a registry cleaning tool is really the only prudent option.
