When complete, your computer should start running much quicker, but we have one last step remaining.


7. Now, click the Registry button in the menu on the left side of CCleaner. Click the Scan for issues button to scan your computer for registry problems. (Registry issues cause computer delays and crashes.) When the scan has completed, click the Fix selected issues.. Button to correct these issues. It will ask you to confirm whether or not you want to back up the registry, choose No then confirm you want the issues fixed.
