How to Fix Windows Slow Startup

Many of us have noticed the "Windows Slow Startup" phenomenon. It just seems that the computer gets slower as time goes by, and the time it takes to start the computer becomes longer and longer. The usual advice for this is to upgrade the computer, but this can be fixed without a hardware upgrade.

All Windows computers slow down over time because of the Windows registry. The Windows registry is a system database that can grow into a huge size. It is where Windows and many applications store information, and more often than not, information that is stored there is not removed when they become obsolete or unneeded. This means that the registry bloats up in size and errors appear in it. This drags down the performance of Windows as a whole.

In order to fix the registry, there are 2 ways. The first way is to use a tool that is included with Windows, called "regedit". The usage of this tool requires in-depth technical knowledge, however, and any mistakes may lead to data corruption or Windows crashes.

The second method is preferred over the first. You can use a good registry cleaner software to automate this task. Because the registry can get really large in size, it is very convenient to use a registry cleaner to scan the entire registry automatically in search of errors, invalid entries and problematic areas, and then fix these for you. This results in an optimized system and Windows will start much faster. If you do this periodically, the performance boost can be maintained.

There are many such software available, but it can be risky to randomly choose one and use it. A badly written tool like this may introduce more problems instead, such as by removing perfectly valid and crucial data in the registry. Therefore it is important to use a good one to perform the job.

A good registry cleaner will help keep your Windows system in good shape and performing optimally. If you are unsure which registry cleaner to use, you can take a look at these reviews of registry cleaners.

Importance of Hyperlinks and Bookmarks

When it comes to computing and the internet it often feels like you need a degree to understand the language never mind get involved. However, once you grasp the basics of the words and terms used, things begin to fall into place.

In this respect, it is human nature that, when you create your own website, you get a little more confident, you want to make it just that little bit more attractive, flashy and inviting. Providing that is, you have not already lost interest and more often than not, your temper, abandoning all hope!

Most websites on the internet today contain several pages where you click on a certain place it automatically takes you to a different part of that page, a different page within the same website or a completely different website.

Hyperlinks and bookmarks are the words that you click on to take you elsewhere. As the website creator you have to create these before uploading your webpage onto the internet.

Once you have established the main content for your main webpage and subsequent pages, each one needs to be linked to all others. This is when you use hyperlinks. If you have a very long webpage and have titles for each section, you can use a bookmark to give your visitor an easier option to move directly to different sections by inserting this bookmark at specific titles which, when clicked, takes them instantly to that point.

When creating hyperlinks or bookmarks you need to type or select the appropriate text, tell the web publishing program what you want to make it into by clicking on hyperlink or bookmark. This brings up a menu asking what you want to link to whether it is a page or another word or section.

Hyperlinks can be one word or a few, frequently displayed as blue text and a blue underline which turns purple when you use them but return to the same place. Hyperlinks which are purple show you have already used them.

Bookmarks are certain areas of a page, normally a word or a few words where you click to take you to a different part of the same page, such as to a different subject or topic, saving you from physically moving down the page to find this information.

A combination of both hyperlinks and bookmarks will improve the appearance and performance of your website, promoting an up to date and sophisticated image to your visitors.
