Compress Bloated Registry and Speed up Windows (How to)

In Windows, the registry data is consistently being written to and removed during a normal windows operation. Overtime, registry can become bloated and large when there has been a lot of additions and deletions from the registry. It can cause various performance issues to the system. Here is how to solve this issue by compressing the registry.


Microsoft offers a manual way to compress the affected registry to normal state, however, it is recommended for advanced users. Normal users may use the free tool “Registry Compressor” to rebuild the registry to new file.

First and foremost, Registry Compressor does NOT remove or add anything to the registry. This is not a registry cleaner or scanner. What it does is it rebuilds the registry to new files, when this happens all the overhead is gone and the registry is smaller and faster.

 Registry Compressor supports Windows XP through Windows 8 (both 32-bit and 64-bit) and easy to use. Download the portable version from the given link below and extract it to a folder.

Run the exe file, click “Analyze” button and then click “Compress” button. Finally reboot your system. Registry

Compressor can be downloaded from source here.
