The Registry is a key component in Windows and is processed every time you start your system The more programs that you install, the larger your registry gets Even if you uninstall a program, often times your registry stays bloated with the entries for those programs This is why most everyone that has had a Windows based computer for more than 6 months notices that it is slower than when they first got it.
