Auslogics BoostSpeed 7 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 7 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 7 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 7 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 7 adds some major new 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.

What's new in 7.4.0.0?

- Registry Cleaner: added new search feature that allows scanning the whole registry for a specific key or entry with further removal of that key at a click of a button. This feature will be very useful to those who are trying to clean the registry from remnants of previously uninstalled software, whose leftover entries could not be removed automatically;
- Registry Cleaner: improved registry scanner through better algorithms for searching main scan categories for unwanted entries;
- improved program interface;
- fixed all known bugs;
- improved internal libraries.


Verdict

Auslogics BoostSpeed is a comprehensive suite of optimisation tools which is easy for PC novices to use, but also gives Windows experts the manual control they need.
