Registry errors are among the persistent problems that you would face with your personal computer or laptop. Irrespective of the system configuration or the specifications of your personal computer or laptop, it is prone to registry errors. One common wonder among most people is, where do these registry errors come from?
In reality, registry errors are caused by anything and everything that is left over in your system and what is not essential for the functioning of the operating system or all the applications and programs that the system is supposed to run. Before you delve into the details of wherefrom you have been getting the registry errors, you have to understand what the registry is and what cause the errors.
The Registry in Windows is devised to keep a record of all tasks that the system performs. It keeps a detailed account of every program being run on the system, every code or script being executed and it facilitates the operation of all such applications and programs that the computer or the operating system is meant to support. When Windows is newly installed, the Registry is completely empty. There are no records whatsoever. As you start using your computer or laptop, the Registry starts getting filled up with all types of files and records. Along with the necessary exe files and other scripts, there are numerous corrupt files that get accumulated. It is these corrupt files and scripts, which are anyway useless, that cause registry errors.
Now, the answer to where did I get these Windows registry errors from is also very simple. You get them from everywhere. You would typically browse the internet, install new programs, software and applications, run various types of tasks, download content, share content, watch movies, play music, install games and also explore all the various facets of functions that the specific personal computer or laptop has.
Every activity you go about on your system will have a log entry. There will be several entries into the registry. Each and every application leaves back certain files, scripts or codes which get piled up in the registry. While system generated entries are useful as they facilitate the operation of the computer or laptop, the entries made by websites, programs, software, applications, games, files and all types of content that you explore, are useless and eventually get corrupt.
It is these files and entries that cause registry errors. In other words, you cannot avoid getting registry errors because almost everything you do, online or offline, apart from basic functioning of the system, will have an impact on the registry.
