What is Registry in Computer OS?Registry is the heart of all modern operating systems(OS), especially Microsoft Windows.
Windows Registry is a central database in Windows. The database contains most of the "pointers" and "settings" for Windows, programs, hardware and users. Pointers tell Windows or programs where to find the resources required to perform specific actions.
It’s the fundamental component where all the critical files needed to run the computer and the various software are listed. It contains critical information such as the values of settings for different programs, users, documents types, system hardware and other things. A slight error in registry can throw your computer in a spin and you on the edge of frustration.
Keeping a check on changes made in registry is beyond any human for its frequency and unconventional nomenclature. Files name within the registry files usually contain strange permutations of numbers and abbreviations which might not make sense to a human brain.
With registry repair, you can catch the errors early and ensure that nothing much goes wrong with how your computer performs.
Unfortunately, there is no inbuilt tool from Microsoft to help you maintain registry. You need third party tools to scan and repair registry. And, you need to take additional care when using third party tools to allow scanning your registry. It is safe to take back of of your registry file before allowing any third party tools to scan your registry.
You can take back from registry editor which can be opened just by typing "regedit" in Run box of your Windows start Menu.
All the program won't require Registry. For example, Mozilla Firebox will avoid use of Registry by storing all the required files/data in a specific folder in the file system.
What A Typical Registry will Contain?
- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (HKLM): Contains configuration information related to software programs and hardware devices installed on your system.
- HKEY_USERS (HKU): Stores configuration information related to all user profiles on the system. This key has a specific template, which is used by your system to create new user profiles.
- HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT (HKCR): Stores information related to protocols, file types and extensions, and classes on your pc. This key is a duplication of the HKLM key. It displays information in the HKCR subtree.
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER (HKCU): Stores information related to desktop settings, variables, environment user folders, variables, and other settings for the current user. It is also a replica of the HKU key. This key extracts information from the HKU\Security ID key of the user logged in on the system.
- HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG (HKCC): This key stores important information related to hardware configuration for the current user. This key takes information from the HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\CurrentControlSet\Hardware Profiles key.
