Error checking in Windows begins by checking all registry files and folders that exist on your PC. If any of these files or folders have errors on them, they will be highlighted as red errors on the screen. When this happens, you should go into the Windows registry editor and manually correct the errors that are present. The registry editor is a vital component in your PC because it allows you to edit and add new entries, remove errors and even create new ones.
When you perform error checking in Windows, it will first show you which errors are causing your PC to slow down. It then shows you which files and folders are the causes of this problem. For example, if your PC has a number of damaged files on it, this will show up as a blue problem in the registry editor. When you are looking at the details of this blue problem, you will be able to see the path of the damaged file from where it was removed to where it ended up.
When fixing this type of error, you can either fix these damaged files manually, or you can use the ‘regedit’ tool to do the job. The ‘regedit’ tool is located inside your Windows registry editor. You can either use the Windows program to open this application, or you can just double-click on the ‘regedit’ icon on your desktop.
When you fix these files, you are correcting the errors in the registry. These files are actually stored in the registry, so you are able to view the information for each file. When you look at any read errors on the screen, you will see where the file is from, and how many times the file has been deleted since it was first introduced. This can be helpful in making your life easier if you find yourself deleting a file that is causing a problem with your PC.
The registry is a very important component of your PC and it needs to be repaired and kept error free. By doing error checking on a regular basis, you can help your PC run faster and smoother. The more often you check your PC, the less damage it will incur from the changes and deletions that it will make each time you use your computer. The last thing you want to do is to have a corrupt and damaged registry that will cause major problems for your system.
If you delete a file that is important to your PC, you will need to find out where it is. The best way to do this is to right click on the file, select properties and then click on the details tab. It is best to view the file and then select the option to show me the full path to this file.
In order to get the path, type the full name of the file and then click on the ‘Go’ button, then wait for it to load up. It is best to use this method on each and every file you have to fix any errors on your PC.
