Welcome back to our blog series on Registry Error Insights!
We get a lot of questions about what Registry Reviver looks at when it runs a scan of your PC, and how Registry Reviver classifies when an error is present. Due to these questions, we’re writing a series of blog posts that describe all the areas of you computer that Registry Reviver scans, and why these areas are important to your computer’s health. These articles will generally be more technical in nature, but we encourage you to ask any questions in the comments section if you would like anything explained.
What are App Paths?
A path in Windows is where on your mass storage device (such as a hard drive) your files are stored. Your Windows Registry contains records of paths for all applications installed on your computer.
How Registry Reviver Helps
When a program is uninstalled, often the built-in uninstaller is sloppy: app paths to the original files are often not removed from the Windows registry. Also, if a program changes location (you move it somewhere else in Program Files; a new version has a new folder name), the app paths may not update in the Registry. Registry Reviver removes invalid paths and updates correct paths for programs that have moved.
