Windows Registry should be credited for its operations (and they are also the culprits for improper operation). Henceforth, the Registry plays a significant role on your Windows.

For the uninitiated, these are a set of automated database, which helps Windows behave the way it does for you. But every time you uninstall any program, it leaves its leftovers in the 'Registry' section and affects its operations.

You can take control of your system with Registry Editor.

Further, registry editor can also help you speed up Windows XP and all others versions. Just type ‘regedit’ at your start/ search menu and edit your Windows.
