									?It's a well known reality that over 94% of PC's that are over a month old are infected
with malicious spyware and adware. Even if you have an antispyware tool your
Windows Registry might be broken - developers of those tools are focused on
removing spyware and adware only, not every trace of software itself. Such software
is rarely accompanied by an uninstall utility and even when it is it almost always
leaves broken Windows Registry errors behind it.

The registry is essentially the catalog or reference source for the computer. Only those
with a meticulous knowledge of computers should attempt to change the registry. If
you make a mistake while altering the registry and it isn't backed up, you may lose
information critical to the proper performance of your computer.

After you run an antispyware application that deletes active spyware files, you are still
left with references to those files in your computer registry. These traces will clog
your registry over time, leaving your computer susceptible to failure.
