Auslogics BoostSpeed is a comprehensive suite of tools that will improve performance in just about every area of your PCs operations.
If your system is slow to boot, for instance, then use the Startup Manager to locate and disable unnecessary Windows startup programs, Explorer extensions and even IE add-ons for a comprehensive list. And BoostSpeed can highlight "dangerous" items, programs it believes may be spyware, for an additional security benefit.
Nothing slows down a PC quite as much as a poorly optimised hard drive, but BoostSpeed makes it easy to get your system back into shape. There are tools to remove junk and leftover files, clear your web, Windows and application histories, and explore your drive to see which folders are consuming the most space. Then the excellent Auslogics Disk Defrag will rearrange your files to deliver the best possible performance.
Of course there are also tools to clean up and then defragment the Registry. As well as a module to speed up your internet connection; you can tweak these settings manually, if you know what you're doing, or let BoostSpeed handle the tricky decisions.
And you get plenty of useful bonus functions that aren't strictly performance-related at all, but they're generally worth having so we're not about to complain. These include modules to undelete files, discover and fix hard drive problems, view system information, securely shred data, or wipe entire hard drives to make sure any personal data they contained has gone forever.
But if browsing all these modules sounds too much like hard work, don't worry, Auslogics have thought of that, too. Launch a System Scan and BoostSpeed will automatically and quickly identify Registry problems, leftover hard drive junk, file fragmentation and more. Then you can have the program fix all these issues in just one click.
BoostSpeed also has other key features, in particular to its Live Speedup module. A Disk Priority Manager optimises applications in real time, your hard drive is monitored to prevent file fragmentation, while disk and Registry cleanups can now be run automatically.
Elsewhere, a Desktop Protection tool prevents system library errors and reduces system crashes. Privacy improvements include a tool to help detect visits to sites containing adult content. And a host of smaller tweaks enhance the program's effectiveness, fix bugs, improve configurability, and generally ensure it does an even better job of boosting your PCs performance.
Lastly, a customisable user-interface enables you to select between seven different skins, so you can pick a UI that meets your visual requirements.
Note that this is the paid Pro version of BoostSpeed 13.
Includes a 3-PC, 1-Year license.
Review by Mike Williams.
Most system performance issues are often a result of other software clashing with your brand new software. For instance, security software can clash with a background process, such as a system maintenance tool or defragmentation software. Another cause of system slowdown, is a result of two software applications performing a similar task. As an example, Windows includes a firewall switched on as a default. Your new security suite is likely to include a firewall. You only need one firewall running. In this example, try turning off your system firewall.
Uninstalling Your New Software
Occasionally you may need to either temporarily or permanently remove your new software.
On a Windows computer, go to the Control Panel and choose Programs and Features. Locate the program within the list, then click it to highlight it. Finally, click the Uninstall button at the top of the list and follow the instructions to remove the program from your PC.
On an Apple Mac computer, using Finder, locate the Applications folder. Within the Applications folder, find the name of the application you wish to remove. Simply drag the icon to your Trash icon in your dock. Empty the Trash to remove the files from your computer.
Still Having Problems?
If you cannot solve your system performance issues or are struggling to remove your software, we advise contacting the software manufacturer. If you placed an order, see the section in the order which states Support options. Alternatively, go to the Contact Us page to contact store support directly.
