If you are not familiar with registry cleaners, how it works and how to perform a registry clean-up, this article will help you to better understand the basic terms that are commonly used in registry cleaning process. I have compiled some of the most commonly used terms and will explain them briefly.
Windows Registry – is a huge database that stores thousands files with all the instruction on how to launch and run a particular program. All the application installed in your computer needs a specific set of instruction in order to open or run properly, without these commands, your computer will be unable to launch or run any application installed in your system.
Corrupted Files – are files that were written inaccurately during the process of insertion of Windows registry. These files may include virus traces, errors in installation, and traces of malware infection.
Empty Entries – these are the places where a registry file for a specific program used to exist, but was deleted due to un-installation of the program. It does not update its location resulting for it to be lost inside your registry.
Runtime Errors – these are errors that occur during the launch of a particular program, start-up or shutdown. These errors are identified by a set of number together with a descriptive phrase so that technicians or ITs can determine the cause of the runtime error.
Registry Cleaner – is a diagnostic tool designed to determine and remove all the errors inside your registry.
Registry Optimizer – is an optional tool to further enhance the performance of a registry cleaner. There are cleaners that offer registry optimizer as an extra feature. Registry optimizers have the ability to organize and reduce the size of your registry in a process called Registry Defragmentation
Registry Defragmentation – is a process of moving registry files from different locations to a single folder, making your registry easier to be read by your computer.
DLL Libraries – is a library inside the registry of your computer. These files contain blocks of instructions for you computer. Before rewriting these blocks of instructions, the registry files refer to the existing DLL files for instructions. A missing DLL files simply means an instruction is missing and could result to computer errors.
.EXE File – are execution files that has all the genuine instructions for your computer. Each application has its own set of.EXE File inside the registry. If a single.EXE File is missing or is written improperly, errors during the application process might occur.
