The Windows Registry can be thought of as an important database where Windows stores all the important information vital to keep your computer running. As you use your Windows PC, many programs use registry to store their information and even after you have uninstalled those programs, these orphan entries are left behind. These obsolete entries not only make your system slower but also take up space on your hard disk. You can use the free Wise Registry Cleaner to scan and clean such unwanted obsolete entries from your registry.
Wise Registry Cleaner is a free software to clean and repair your Windows registry.
