What do you do when your computer becomes slow? Run defragmenter, clean up junk files? Is this enough? The answer is no. To make sure that your system is fast, you should use a system optimizer software.
PC optimizer tools should be quick and automatic. They should analyze the entire computer and fix performance issues with a single click of a button. If your PC has become slow and you’re searching for a free tune up tool then check our reviews on CCleaner, GlarySoft utilities, Slimware SlimCleaner and System Mechanic Pro.
If you’re looking for an alternative to the applications mentioned above, go through the below brief review on Auslogics BoostSpeed, a robust program to fix a slow computer.
The BoostSpeed program from Auslogics is a one of the simplest system tuneup software for Windows. With this program, you can make your PC faster with just a few clicks of the mouse.
BoostSpeed is available for download as a free and premium application. For this review, I’ve downloaded the free version of BoostSpeed from auslogics.com. The setup file’s size is 15.6 megabytes. For installation, your system should have a minimum 70 megabytes free space on the HDD.
Once you download the setup file, run it and wait for BoostSpeed’s installation to complete. When Auslogics BoostSpeed has been installed, open it.
The program will begin scanning your PC immediately after you run it. Once the scanning is complete, the program will rate your system’s performance as Poor, Good or Excellent and it will display a repair all button to fix all issues.
As you can see in the below screenshot, my laptop’s performance has been rated as poor because I have never used any third party program to speed up my laptop.
