My PC has slowed after defrag


Recommended Posts



I recently installed Wise Registry Cleaner 8 to rid my registry of faulty entries.


I have to be honest I was very impressed, however my PC was running fairly fast but I thought I'd run the registry defrag whilst I was at it.


Now it has completed, it has slowed my machine dramatically, that my bootup speed and program start speeds are at least x10 worse. My PC booted in 45 seconds with no lag starting programs but after the defrag it takes nearly 5 minutes and programs (like firefox) which were usually instant are now take a minute or so.


Is there a way to reverse this or solve this issue??


Many thanks, Matt.
