Re: One reason why i hate installers!
said by BigBlarg:It's important. The CPU has several registers, and when you shut down the computer, they are left containing whatever crap was last there.
I never cleaned my registers
You should always run a program to zero out all registers after system shutdown, otherwise it's harder for the CPU to write new values into them.
It's the same principle as erasing a blackboard now and then. Or at least, I think it is.
The same is true of RAM. It takes more effort to write on top of words that aren't zero; the computer has to press harder on the RAM chips.
