Dear Charles,

This week's new reviews: Find out if Nokia's N97 lives up to its flagship status; discover if Asus's U80V has more to offer than a glowing trackpad; and we reveal why laptop ownwers will love the Samsung SyncMaster LD190 monitor

PC Pro podcast: On this week's show - the team debates whether it's time to do a deal with "machines", Nokia and Intel's cosy new relationship and the US city that wanted employees to hand over their Facebook logins and passwords with their job application forms. Plus reviews editor Jonathan Bray pops in with his candidate for Hot Hardware of the Week. Download it now

Best of the blogs: We uncover the ingenious upgrade to the humble three-point plug; find out how the new Firefox 3.5 compares to its rivals in terms of raw speed; and Darien Graham-Smith wonders if Nokia could achieve what George Bush failed to in Iran

The Problem - Have you noticed that the longer you have your computer, the slower it runs and the more it crashes? Often this phenomenon is caused by problems in the registry that accrue over time. Left unchecked, your system will become increasingly unstable, run more slowly and crash more frequently.

The Solution - RegistryBooster is the easy answer to registry problems. It conducts deep scans of your registry to check for errors and conflicts, then repairs and optimizes the registry to peak performance and stability.
