Windows 10 uninstalling programs

  1. Okay, so I think we can all agree that previous versions of Windows would wear and tear over time and get slower than when you first installed it. A lot of people have said that this is because of the way that the OS uninstalls programs and how it leaves behind certain registry keys. Does anyone know if they have fixed this problem?

    I heard a developer discussing this subject about a year or so before the Windows 10 was released, but I haven't found any articles of anyone claiming it has been fixed. Can we hope for a faster and more junk-free future?

    Suggest using Revo uninstaller instead of the OS uninstaller.This deletes program and all remaining remnants.

    The Windows Registry files (there are 5) contribute greatly to this issue. These files get multiple fragments and that just kills performance for everything.

    Get a copy of Defraggler,
    • run as Admin
    • settings->Boot Time Defrag -> Once
    • reboot the system.
    Also consider Defrag Freespace thereafter
