The registry is a collection of information in Windows that stores important details about your system's hardware, application program configurations, and settings. When a particular program runs, Windows continually references this database. For example, some entries in the registry file are as follows: HKEY_Current_User, which stores all the current user information for each user of the system, and HKEY_Local_Machine, which contains settings for hardware, the operating system, and installed applications.
Application programs write data into the registry file during installation and continue using it as a reference. Thus, this information is very critical. Any changes to it could lead to your computer becoming inoperable. Therefore, it is essential to handle the registry file with extra care while making any modifications. I would strongly suggest taking a backup before making any changes to it. This way, you can restore the original settings if any issues arise after the modifications.
The registry in a computer system is like a blueprint that contains information about drivers and other important components. DLLs (Dynamic Link Libraries) are also stored in this file and are used by more than one program. Thus, we can say that the registry includes very important data that fits together to run applications.
Fortunately, you can clear all unwanted entries, and you do not have to tolerate these errors. Windows OS provides a feature that allows you to fix the registry and clean it up. However, cleaning the registry should be done with great care as it is a very sensitive file on your computer. You need to be extremely cautious while making any changes to this file.
