Hello and Good Evening Everyone,
Over the course of time, I have been removing invalid or unneeded entries within the registry of my laptop running Windows 10 using CCleaner. With that point in mind, it seems logical that there might be some degree of fragmentation within the registry. I know that fragmentation of the hard drive occurs over time as applications are uninstalled, files deleted, and so forth. As such, I am under the impression a similar outcome can happen when unnecessary entries are deleted within the registry, thus, deterring performance of the operating system.
In conclusion, I am wondering if there is a way of either manually defragging the registry within Windows 10 or perhaps running a 3rd party program which can be downloaded and installed freely.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
