The registry in windows operating system is a central hierarchical database used to store important information related with system configuration for one or more users, applications and hardware devices.
During its operation windows operating system continually referring to the registry files. For example to find the right profiles for each user, the applications installed on the computer and the types of documents that each can create, property sheet settings for folders and application icons, what hardware exists on the system, and the ports that are being used. Registry data is stored in binary files.
Sometimes after long period of operation and after several times software installation and un-installation, windows become sluggish and less responsive. Many people complaining their problem that their windows is no longer works the way it used to. This problem is due in part to invalid entries that exist in your system registry. Unwanted virus or because of software you are no longer using or software that was not properly removed added more invalid entries to the registry.
