Leave it alone!!!
Those 'free' downloads are designed for only one thing..... They 'prove' that you need to pay for their product by showing you fake problems. They count on you trying it when you have some doubts about your system so it appears to be finding 'the' trouble. Then you pay them and either they do nothing (better) or they really do a 'clean up' and make things much worse than they are now. The third possibility, is that they have, or would when you activate it, install actual malware on your system.
This is what I recommend:
Scan your system with Malwarebytes to make sure that it is clean. Then run a manual Windows Update and accept all security and urgent updates. Then if your system is still running well, stay away from anything offering to help, fix, or speed up your system for you. If you have a particular problem, come here first and state all of the details. If you do need a program, we will recommend one, but more often, it will not be that.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Registry cleaners are a waste of time, and those you pay for, a waste of money. Most of them are snake oil. Nearly all the things that so called "tune up" applications do can can be done using the tools provided by the Operating System All you, the user needs to do, is to learn how to use them.

The best a registry cleaner can do with any degree of reliability is to remove redundant entries. Redundant entries do not cause problems. The worst that can happen is that it can slow down you computer a tiny little bit.

Those registry cleaners that claim to fix errors that are preventing a programme from running will, sooner or later to try and fix something that isnt broken and then you are in a mess.

It is very rare for a registry problem to prevent an application from running and for those that do, reinstalling the application with sort it out with a high degrees of certainty that you are not making a bad situation worse which a lot of registry cleaners do..

"is there a free windows tune up and fix broken files program out there"

Short answer is no. There's not one you pay for either because they can never be geared to the specific software mix you have on board. Avoid them all unless working under instruction. They can cause more damage than they fix.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

You could consider trying CCleaner if the machine is running sluggish, just I'd avoid the registry cleaner built into that program as well, all registry cleaners have a possibility of making a mistake and corrupting your OS.

You've been helped by a 15 year old.

I agree entirely with #6 but do believe that if you MUST use a registry cleaner then the one in CCleaner is one of the least ambitious ones and therefore safer.

The main issue with registry cleaners is just "standing back and letting them remove all they find". Used selectively, with an understanding about what you are removing is a somewhat different matter. Invalid entries are usually ignored by Windows and hardly ever affect performance (despite claims made).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
