Why did you install "registry booster software" in the 1st place? And why didn't you reboot after uninstalling?

Registries cannot be "boosted" - don't believe all you see on the internet.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

rachana, I agree with Derek, most 'accelerators' have just the opposite effect. They're little more than an entree to install malicious software. First thing I'd do is scan for nasties.
Slowness is one of the more common complaints heard and it can have a number of causes. I'll enumerate a few of the more common and we'll hope that hits you.

Cable access? The number of folks trying to access the net at once can slow things down. Get up in the middle of the night and see if it's faster. If so, learn to love it (the slowness), it's them not you. Sorta along those same lines is ATT's 'high speed' internet. Several users have told me it's worse than dial up? Dunno.

Speed depends on memory and a lot of machines are right on the borderline when it comes to meeting required minimums so any added 'memory hog' has an adverse effect. Add memory?
Sorta along those same lines is your startup menu. Lots of software writers think there's no possible way we could exist without their masterpiece so they put it in the startup menu. That usually only causes slow booting, but ... Take a look at what you have running in the background and be sure there aren't extras. Things you MUST have in order for Windows to be happy are listed @:

An overzealous firewall reading each item over and over can significantly slow things. Kinda along those same lines are temporary files. Search for *.tmp,*.chk,~*.*, .chk (c/p so there’re no errors) You should only have 1 file containing your currently active files. Delete any others found (tip: select all and delete. It’ll tell you which is active and can’t be deleted.).

A common ailment is a file called 'index.dat'. It gets read every time and can take quite a while if it’s too bloated. It's like a log file and keeps a record of every site you visit on the web. Empty, it's 32K, but it can grow HUGE. It's a protected file and can't be deleted by normal methods. CCleaner (free @: can get rid of it when it’s ticked (not to worry, it gets rebuilt EMPTY on the next boot.). May not be your deal at all, but won’t cause any harm to try. I run it often.
There're others, but those are some of the more common. Suggested further reading: http://speedupslowcomputer-shelly.b...
