Thanks for the links. I have used these two programs previously, and AWC since it originated under another name. Installed the program the other day, and I began to realise why I had uninstalled it previously. I find that it slowed the computer down a little, and it was not as thorough as the previous versions. I do not know if you have found that!.
With regards to the other link Winaso, I forget now on how that faired in previous tests. Perhaps a re-install and trial in the making!.
I'm with the FE on this one, never found any of the so called "optimisers" to be any good.
Very many times I have posted my "Slow PC" answers, for people with poor performance problems, which if followed then tweaks the PC to improve speed. Many people have said that it has cured their problems.
Using common sense and removing the dross that builds up, means my machine is running as fast as it did (even faster because I have increased RAM) when I bought it 5 years ago.
spuds....I have ccleaner as a staple cleaner but PCA has reviewed iolo System Mechanic an issue or two back. I tried the trial version on the PCA dvd and found it an excellent product especially as it does what it says on the tin.I run it once a week and let it tidy up the computer for me.Thanks to PCAs excellent reveiw,I bought the product and have to say I'm very happy with it as well. Although I've only had my computer for 18 months,it runs as good as the day I bought it.
I just wish TalkTalk could sort out why my internet speed went from 19000kbps to between 5000/6000kbps overnight on the 10th to 11th June.Its taking them forever to find the exchange fault. I wish there was a tweaking programme for this though.
