How many times per day is it safe to Clean my Registry? Reward $1
Created by 99701, 134 days ago, 1001 views

How often is it safe to Clean my Registry using Windows 10 intel Home HP Desktop 20-c010 with 2 GB of Ram and 900 GB Hard Drive? I use a Safe Scan Occasionally, but usually use a Custom Scan about 10 times per Day. Is that too much, and will it harm my Computer to do so? These Pictures are my Custom Scan Settings that I also have a Desktop Icon to Click and Run. I hope someone knows. Thanks.

You should not run any registry defrag more than once per month. There really should be no need to defrag your registry as often as you have been doing so.

Even in instances where one is regularly downloading and installing applications, and then quickly or soon after removing these applications, it's not necessary to clean the registry anywhere near as often as you have. While it shouldn't cause problems, depending on what you're using to clean it, overdoing it could create a problem that causes your system not to start up.

If you're scanning for viruses and malware that often, that is not necessary either. Running scans too often is just a waste of time, processor capacity, and it consumes RAM. These limit your PCs ability to perform at it's best because it's having to dedicate resources to this activity when it could be better used by something you're doing. Besides, running scans for malware and viruses is tedious, and while it is helpful to check regularly, for example, once per week, no virus and malware protection is full proof. There's always going to be a way around whatever your system is running.

You might consider upping your PCs RAM, since that seems really, really low. My 5 PCs all have at least 6 to 7 GB of RAM.
