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.

    "Why didn't I find it earlier?"

    April 28, 2014   |   By SmartBananas

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 6.5.5

    Pros

    Boost Speed is exactly what I was looking for!

    Cons

    It is perfect!

    Summary

    I went through a dozen installs/uninstalls of other system utilities... several system restores... one problem after another adding to the agony my two computers were already going through...and then I found Boost Speed! I am just happy I am able to type these words from my Windows 7 HP Pavillion laptop that had been practically near dead before I used Boost Speed on it.

    "Great program!"

    April 28, 2014   |   By Jessej80

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 6.5.5

    Pros

    I've used it on several different systems from Windows XP to now Windows 8.1 and it worked great on all.
    You can back up with this program before you do anything with it, which I used to do religiously prior to every cleanup... not anymore :)
    Has a lot of additional features, some of which I didn't think I'd ever use, but ended up using at one point or another.

    Cons

    Not really a con, but I wish they'd include an antivirus in Boostspeed. That would make it all I need for PC care.

    Summary

    I have been using this program since 2012, when I upgraded from Auslogic's free Defrag. This is by far the best optimizer out there.
    No wonder CNET rates it Spectacular - it truly is!

    "Registry Damaged; System Restore Was Needed"

    April 20, 2014   |   By techiesitemaker

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 6.5.5

    Pros

    - Nice Looking
    - Cleaning Was Okay
    - A lot of features
    - Most of them work well
    - Internet Is Faster

    Cons

    - Registry completely messed up by Auslogics BootSpeed
    - Had to do System Restore to go to the internet
    - A big pain

    Summary

    I will probably never use the "Registry Cleaner" again, while other features are very nice, it's hard to trust software that messes up the computer.
