You get a new computer and compared to your old one it's so fast. Programs load quick and it's really noticeable. Then, as time goes by the machine seems to lose some of its zip. Things load slower and you find yourself seeing more hour glasses. What's the problem? To put it simply a wide variety of JUNK!
From the time you fire it up the first time your computer becomes a repository for your data and lots of junk. You get junk each time you surf the Internet because your browser maintains a cache to speed things up. You get junk when you install programs and you often get more junk when you uninstall them. Your computer gathers garbage files from old backups, zero byte files, temporary files, and lots more. Many of you might be amazed how how many useless files your computer accumulates. All this junk slows your computer down. It fills up the Windows Registry, wastes disk space, and gradually makes your computer act like a car with too many miles.
SpeedUpMyPC, by Uniblue Systems, is a powerful utility for getting the most out of your computer. And what's particularly nice about this program is that it's fairly intuitive. You don't need to be a computer wizard to figure it out. It's easy-to-use and that makes it perfect for users with all levels of experience.
SpeedUpMyPC performs a number of functions that get your computer functioning like it used to. It gives you an overview so you know exactly the last time certain functions were performed. As you can see in the screen shot it lists the last time memory was optimized, the last time junk files were cleaned, and so on.
The optimization tab give you access to tools to optimize:
Memory optimization monitors computer memory usage and help you free up memory for programs that need it. This is helpful because some programs leave RAM trapped when they close down and SpeedUpMyPC gives that memory back to you .
CPU optimization lets you clearly see how hard your computers CPU (central processing unit) is working. You can look at a one minute graph or a one hour graph to see difference. A cool feature is the Application Booster. With this you can tell the CPU to give more resources to certain programs and to give less to others. Disk View lets you clearly see the load on your hard drive and it also gives you one minute and one hour graphs for comparison.
Under Internet Optimization you can optimize your bandwidth usage based on your type of connection. It will also make adjustment to your Web browser so you always get top performance.
Lastly, the Startup Optimizer lets you see all of the programs that load when Windows loads. Some of these programs you may want to load, but others you may not even know about. You can go in and disable specific entries from starting or remove them completely. It puts you in control. It also frees up RAM and that gives you more memory to work with.
