If your system has started to behave in a strange way, work too slow and crash too frequently, it's probably due to Registry errors. Registry First Aid can lend you a hand here.

This application performs a through analysis of Windows Registry in search of problems such as invalid paths, broken file associations, DLL references that are no longer shared, and unused software entries, among others. You can do this manually or scheduled automated analysis.

Registry First Aid also includes some extra tools with which you can manage the Registry and make backup copies. The program makes a backup copy before applying any change, in case something goes wrong.

Registry First Aid does what it says on the tin, and performs fast, efficient Registry analysis. On the downside, the interface design could be improved.

With Registry First Aid you can analyze, clean and fix Windows Registry, so that your computer is faster and more stable.
