Gaming is fun but it can quickly turn into a nightmare if your cool math games run slow or jumpy. This is a big problem which affects even the best computers, but is actually pretty easy to fix… it’s all to do with a part of your computer which not many people know about.The problem with most games is that they are trying to do too much on your computer, forcing your PC to have to only do a few things at a time, making it slower and slower. Think of it as a queue of things which need to be processed – and a game needs a lot of pieces of information processed at any one time. If you’re playing a driving game, your PC is constantly updating the map, the cars, the times and the statistics, which means that in order for it all to run smoothly, you need a PC which can deal with all that easily.
The reason why most games run slow is not because your computer isn’t powerful enough. It’s all to do with a part of your system called the ‘registry’. This is the central database for Windows which stores all the settings and options for your PC, and is also the home to many of the settings for your games. Everything from your favorite character to your keyboard settings are stored in this database, making it one of the most important and well-used parts of your system.Unfortunately, it makes your computer run slow because the files inside it become corrupt and damaged, making Windows take longer to read them. This means that if you’re mid-game, your PC has literally got to take time out just to process the files you need, making your game run slower whilst it does that . This is a big problem which hardly anyone knows about (because the registry is constantly hidden in the background of Windows), but is actually one of the easiest things to fix.
You can easily speed up your games by making the corrupt / damaged registry files all run smoothly again. You could do this manually (just search for REGEDIT.EXE on your PC), but the registry database is so huge that it literally would be impossible for anyone to search through it manually. Luckily, there have been several software tools called registry cleaners designed to fix this problem. These tools have been created to scan through the entire registry database and then fix any of the problems that are inside it. This allows your computer to read all the files it needs, making your games run smoothly and quickly again.
