How Windows Registry Hacks Work
Windows registry hacks are used to maintain the efficiency in the Windows operating system and to help enhance the security of the system. Registry hacks are located in the Windows registry which contains all of the files, settings, and configurations that control the Windows operating system.
The Windows registry provides a complete management system for the applications that run on the Windows operating system. Since the programs are dispersed throughout the operating system the registry is capable of storing all the files in one location which makes it easier to work with the files that are associated with all of the applications running on the operating system.
How Registry Hacks Work
There are many different types of Windows registry hacks that perform different functions when it comes to making the operating system run more efficiently and securely.
- Security Hacks: A security hack is a command type located in the registry that controls the access to certain applications by other people that are using your computer. Although there are other ways to restrict access to areas of your computer, a security hack provides an additional security enhancement by providing the capability to disable the hidden administrator account. This is an account that exists in your operating system in addition to the usual administrator account. Anyone that understands the operating system can gain access to areas you have restricted through this hidden account.
- CPU Time Saver: During usual computer operations there are several different programs using the central processing unit simultaneously. When the programs are operating at the same time, Windows will distribute a period of CPU time before moving on to the next application. This design is incorporated into the operating system to allow your PC to run faster, however, sometimes there is a longer time span between switching applications. The CPU registry hack sets a longer duration for the central processing unit before it moves to the next application.
- Encryption Hack: A few versions of the Windows operating systems allow you to encrypt files although it is a process that involves a lot of steps. Deploying an encryption registry hack cuts back on the complexity of file encryption by providing a more efficient method for encrypting your files.
- Hard Drive Access Hack: Some of the versions of the Windows operating systems take longer to access the hard drive if it contains a massive amount of data and files. You can speed up the time it takes to access the hard drive by deploying a hard drive access hack.
There are many other hacks that you can use for different functions in the Windows operating system which you can download from the Microsoft website.
