I have a philosophy of NEVER installing software unless I know that I really need it and will use it when installed. Even then, I give it a good 24 hours before I do anything.

The fact that you are hesitating indicates to me that you don't really need these things and the fact that you're asking others to help you justify loading them suggests that you would find them less than useful.

Programs such as those you are asking about have a reputation of not doing as they claim and if they do have a real effect, it is only minor.

Personally, I would steer well clear.

Just my view;-))

It just looks quite good from this: click here

But I await other responses to see what others think.

But thanks for your thoughts.

I don't know why folk bother writing any more of these so-called optimizers everyone claiming to contain the silver bullet that'll put your PC into warp speed - there must already exist a different one for every day of the year.

As for Bigfix, that is a waste of space.

Looks like they are all a waste of space.

Ok, thanks Leo49.

I will wait for any other comments but I think I have made my mind up.

My opinion: If it ain't broke don't fix it.

If your PC is running OK, why install other software?

I agree with Leo49, system optimizers are usually rubbish and I have heard reports of them actually creating problems.

Yep, waste of space.
