In Reply to: Tech - Registry needs cleaning? posted by RegT on August 31, 2017 at 11:31:59:
: My computer has been running slow. Somebody said it could me my registry needs cleaning. Is that true? I don't even know what my registry is, let alone how to clean it. Help!
Right, be careful of any registry cleaners you download. The popular CCleaner tool has been compromised by hackers, resulting in millions of users accidentally also downloading a malicious, data-harvesting program. If you download any freeware programs, make sure you have good anti-virus, anti-malware software installed on your computer which MAY catch such programs before they can do much damage.
