Most computers begin to suffer stability problems with continued use, although to a
different degree that may depend on different factors. Reduced stability that manifests
itself in various PC errors may be caused by a wide array of issues, most of them related
to the Windows registry and the damage it may have sustained.
The most effective way to fix crashes and errors on a PC is with the help of special software that safely performs
registry cleanup and repair, and tunes up system settings –
Advanced PC users may be able to fix Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, Win 7 or 8 problems by manually editing the
registry or removing individual keys found to be corrupt or invalid, as well as applying other manual PC bug
fixes. Users may seek professional help from an IT technician, who can help avoid a full PC crash, fix PC power
supply and other hardware, as well as clean the computer from issues that may be causing stability problems or
general malfunctions. However, since any manipulations with the registry always carry a risk of rendering the
operating system unbootable, whenever a user is in any doubt of their technical skills or knowledge, they should
only use special software that provides safe PC fixes and is meant to fix system errors and other computer problems
without requiring any special skills.
The most common symptoms of PC errors are application or system freezes (when an application or the whole system
stops responding to mouse clicks or any other user actions for a brief period of time, but later returns to normal
operation), application or system crashes (when an application or the whole system stops responding to user actions
and nothing can bring it back to normal operation; application has to be terminated or a PC reboot is required),
random computer reboots that are not initiated by the user, various error messages or BSOD ("blue screen of death"
or the "STOP Error"), as well as connectivity issues that cannot be fixed by adjusting network settings. Problems
with software uninstalls or reinstalls can also be a sign that PC needs to be repaired.
Computer errors are typically caused by invalid or corrupt registry entries that get left over by various
applications or appear due to software or system malfunctions, badly written application code or program
incompatibilities. Whenever a PC is turned off in the middle of a Windows update being installed, an application
task gets aborted midway or system files get moved on the hard drive, PC errors may appear as a result.
Other common reasons for computer errors are virus or other malware activity, as well as incorrect software
uninstalls, attempts by inexperienced users to manually edit registry entries and a number of other factors.
