The Microsoft Windows operating system has been around for quite a long time, but it was not always the fully featured and well polished platform that it is today. In fact, the first versions of Windows may have not even been recognizable to the younger and more jaded computer users among us! The precursor to what we now know as Windows was called MS-DOS, which stands for Microsoft Disk Operating System. This was the primary desktop computer operating system on the market during much of the 1980s, and it did not have a GUI, or graphical user interface. Instead, it relied on a CLI, or command line interface. This required all commands to be issued not through point and click operations, but by entering text. That doesn't mean that there were no points at which a user would use a graphical interface, but only within the context of programs running on top of the platform.d
Regtask was able to clean up my computer and speed up the performance! I highly recommend it
My computer was always popping up with registry errors and I couldnt get rid of them. Regtask did the job for me and took less then 5 minutes to speed up my computer.
I have to admit I'm no computer geek. When something goes wrong, I usually have to call someone to fix it and it costs me a lot of money. When my computer started to experience random freezes, I just used Regtask and now it works normally again.
My computer is 5 years old and runs extremely slow now. I was a bit sceptical about using Regtask, but just decided to give it a shot in the end and it worked out fantastically for me.

Games and other applications were and would become available, offering a dynamic and much more intuitive means to interact with a computer's hardware. Eventually, this kind of interaction would become the standard for Windows computer users, and this was fully realized with the release of Windows 3. While still running essentially on a core of MS-DOS, it looked much like the versions of Windows we use today.For example, traditionally browsing though files were done with textual commands, and the output or file listing was produced as text within the same terminal window from which the command was issued. With Windows 3, a more visually oriented and easy to use program was available for browsing the contents of one's computer. Similarly, changing computer setting were made much easier for the layman with the "Control Panel" program, which grouped options together logically allowing for point and click navigation rather than editing text files containing the same settings.

More Info Regarding File Extension Wri
Along with this new version of Windows came completely revamped and redesigned programs to take advantage of this new presentation style and interaction potential. Indeed, the change from MS-DOS to Windows 3 necessitated the design of completely new programs as well, as there was no place or capability for them in an operating system operating an exclusively command line interface. Many such programs came bundled with it, including a relatively crude art program called Paintbrush, a calendar program, address and phone number organizing utility, word processor, and more. In fact, there were two word processors included, and one is still in use today on the most current versions of Windows many years later, called Notepad. Notepad was extremely simple back then, and remains so intentionally to retain its light weight and speed. The other word processing program that was offered in a bundle along with all the rest was called plainly, "Write." This was a much more fully featured program, and included a substantial amount of customization and text formatting options. Unlike with the Notepad program which was only capable of saving files in the raw .txt format, Write's formatting capabilities made it necessary to store additional information about this additional data so that the formatting would not be lost once the file was saved.
Windows Write files preserve this information in a .wri file. There is no other program, currently maintained, obsolete, or otherwise which produces this type of file extension. That doesn't mean, however, that there are no currently maintained programs which don't support the decoding and conversion of such files. In fact, there are too many to list here so we're going to stick with the most popular. The best one to start with is the one that every Windows user has on their computer, and that is WordPad. WordPad is the spiritual successor to Windows Write in that it basically accomplishes the same thing; it is a lightweight but still moderately featured word processor that allows for fairly extensive text formatting. While this program can open .wri files, it saves in .rtf format. RTF stands for "rich text format," and allows for the preservation of that formatting, accomplishing the same goal as Write but with a more open file format as there are a great number of free programs which can read it.
To convert a .wri file to a .rtf file, simply open it with WordPad and observe the document to ensure that all formatting changes translate properly, and they should. From here, re-save the file, but as a .rtf from the drop down menu beneath where you enter the name of the file you're saving. Beware, as if you save the same file as a .txt you will lose all the formatting that you've applied. If, when you attempt to open such a file in the correct program, you receive an error about the file being unreadable, attempt to reacquire the same file from a different souce to minimize the possibility of corruption.
