Many programs store information about themselves in the Windows Vista registry; these programs add new file extension associations and install components of their own. Far too often, the unistallation methods used by these programs fail to remove their information from the registry adding unnecessary bloat. After several series of installation/uninstallation, the Windows Vista registry becomes bigger and bigger; computer power declines and the program access times increase.
