The nine root causes of PC slow-down include some already understood, such as registry errors and registry bloat, but some that iolo claims have not been properly understood before.
"From Iolo Labs press release: Following nearly a year of research, iolo Labs, iolo technologies independent research arm, has discovered two new key factors that result in the symptomatic loss of computer performance over time.
While it is commonly known that hardware limitations such as inadequate memory levels, low storage capacity, processor bottlenecks, or even malicious software infections can hinder computer speed, the universal - and more entropic - phenomenon of gradual and ongoing degradation of PC performance with continued use remains unexplained by these hardware-based factors and has confounded computer users for decades. Since 1998, iolo Labs has analyzed millions of PCs in an effort to quantify the seemingly inevitable performance entropy that occurs during everyday computing use, and to create software and tools that can effectively reverse and prevent it. With the addition of two newly identified factors - program misalignment caused by file system entropy, and resource deadlock caused by incremental software redundancy - iolo Labs now counts a total of nine root causes of PC slowdown."
