Editors' review

BoostSpeed is an effective all-encompassing utility suite, combining some of Auslogics' popular freeware titles such as Disk Defrag and Registry Defrag with services that they don't offer elsewhere. There's an uninstall manager, a startup manager for boot cycle customizations, RAM and browser optimizers, file shredder, DirectX diagnostic, Windows tweak manager, and several mini apps to manage Windows settings. It also comes with a rescue center that can back up any settings before you change them. No doubt, BoostSpeed gives you your money's worth, at least in terms of services provided. Upgrading also only costs $10, for those who own older versions.

Are they all worth paying for? That depends on what kind of user you are. Most, if not all, of these features are available as freeware from one vendor or another, and generally one in each category is top-notch or nearly so. Some of the lesser tools, like the tweaks manager and the security feature, didn't live up to our expectations. Tweaks focused on basic functions and wouldn't serve as a replacement for TweakUI, while the security feature merely let me know that we had up-to-date security apps installed. Still, the convenience of having all these tools located under one umbrella was hard to argue with, and even the tools that didn't impress did their jobs hitch-free.

Scan speeds for the features new to us included here were comparable with those in Disk Defrag. Users also got the convenience of optionally setting the program to run at startup and live in the system tray, making most of the program's functionality no more than a context-menu click away. The most useful tools are the Disk Defrag, the RAM optimizer, the Registry Optimizer--if you believe that "optimizing" the Registry is more than snake oil--the file shredder, and the performance monitor. The 15-day trial comes unfettered, allowing you to thoroughly judge if this is a program you want.

    "If you like malware, spyware and pop-ups then get this"

    August 19, 2014   |   By _Mystic_

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 6.5.6

    Pros

    None whatsoever.

    Cons

    It doesn't clean up everything after a scan/fix. Doing an immediate scan afterwards reveals hundreds into several thousand errors.

    Many self promoting and annoying pop-up ads for "The Newer Version!". IF YOU BUY A YEAR MEMBERSHIP DO NOT UPGRADE!!! You will lose the version you're using and can't get it back!

    It just fails at thoroughly cleaning and fixing errors.

    Summary

    I bought a year subscription for Boostspeed and have yet to run a scan, fix errors, run a scan immediately after and have zero errors. It has simply never happened. An immediate follow up scan reveals not just a few errors but hundreds and most of the time, for me, 1,500+ and as much as 3,000+. This software is a total fail on every level. Download and/or purchase at your own risk.
