    His problem is already on his system
    Using the portable versions don't download what you claim
    He can delete the programs after he's done

    Not as comprehensive. But for regular usage it should be enough.

    Nope, never putting another registry cleaner on any of my systems again. They're honestly no longer needed especially with the risk involved.

    I meant the Windows tools in the article. But you are right. Registry cleaning is basically nonsense and even dangerous, although there could be entries that are no longer needed and can be removed. The removal does not provide any advantage though, while the tools may also delete important ones. Therefor, I never use this feature.

    The answer was......Yes. (You could have installed Windows 10 on your old computer.)

    Would that have fixed all your problems? Maybe, maybe not. If you had bad RAM for example, no it wouldn't.
    If you had Malware or viruses on your system....yeah....temporarily.

    My advice in your case would be what you did....get a newer system. Stuff does wear out. Even Motherboards (Caps etc)

    But if you do not know how to protect your system and leave it vulnerable, then you'll probably end up back at the same bus stop soon.
