Do I need to clean my registry?

To remain stable and function properly, the Windows operating system relies on its registry — a database of settings and information for all your hardware and software. If you’re saddled with broken registry items, you can suffer frequent crashes and error messages, issues with apps, and generally decreased performance overall. It’s important to regularly clean and repair your registry — but make sure to use a safe registry cleaner tool so that you don’t accidentally delete anything that’s actually necessary.

How do I clean my registry?

With Avast Cleanup, it’s easy to clean your registry. Simply run a scan and Avast Cleanup will identify broken registry items, orphaned entries, invalid file type pointers, and old startup entries from third parties. Avast Cleanup safely deletes or repairs all problematic registry entries. Then, enable our built-in Automatic Maintenance feature so we can maintain your registry regularly, without you having to lift a finger.

Is Avast’s registry cleaner safe?

Yes. Avast Cleanup and its built-in registry cleaner tool was designed by security experts.
