We know that the Windows registry stores settings and options for the operating system and contains all information as well as settings for all hardware. Corruption of the system can be just a matter of time if there are serious errors in our Windows registry file. Those who are tech-savvy tend to repair registry errors by manually editing the regedit.exe or regedt32.exe files. However, careless registry editing can cause irreversible damage. To make the repair and fixing of registry much easier, users can try out an instant repair tool, ERROR DOCTOR 2008.

Once you have completed the scanning process, you will be notified of the errors which exist. The application will tell you the risk level of the errors found and the types of error. This application also allows you to remove the bugs and fix the errors. You can click on the “Remove” button.
