Recommended Optimization Software

The following list of software is what we recommend for your computer. Certain software such as anti-virus software and anti-spyware software is essential. We tried to find at least one free alternative for every category of software. One thing to remember is that most of the free software we recommend is only free for personal use and not corporate use.

SpeedUpMyPC - This computer optimization software did a great job as well when it comes to improving overall PC speed. In our tests of SpeedUpMyPC, it improved our startup time by 24 seconds, improved the PC's PassMark Performance score by 10 points, and freed up 100 megs of RAM that were previously being used.

PC Matic by PC Pitstoppc matic - PC Matic did a great overall job when it comes to speeding up a computer. This comprehensive PC speed up software covers the registry, startup, Internet speed, junk files, hard disk fragmentation, spyware scan, and memory utilization.

Auslogics Boostspeed - This is another computer optimization software that did a solid job at speeding up our computer and improving overall PC responsiveness.

Defraggler - This hard drive defrag tool is free and offers many features that the Windows defrag tool doesn't offer. We also found that it defragged a bit quicker than the built-in Windows tool.
