Editors' Review

+
This application was designed to accelerate your connection, but its claims were unsubstantiated during testing. Through BeFaster's skinnable interface, you can select what type of connection you have--for example, a LAN or a T1 connection, DSL broadband, or a dial-up modem. Then you click Optimize Settings, after which the program will prompt you to reboot your PC for the settings to take effect. The program claims to improve online gaming connections, optimize TTL, and TCP large Windows connections. Additionally, BeFaster offers advanced features for customizing MTU and browser settings, QOS and NWLINK parameters, and COM ports, though you'll probably need a trip to the help section to fully understand these options. Unfortunately, we didn't notice any significant improvement in our connection during initial and subsequent system reboots. To add to your woes, BeFaster is bundled with adware, as you won't be able to install the program without accepting its additional toolbar. Suspiciously, the toolbar didn't appear on our IE browser. Though its target audience of advanced users may be willing to deal with these issues, it doesn't minimize the fact that this 15-day trial program does not always deliver.

"Viruses & Malware Beware!"

July 09, 2013  |  By sattvalotus

 |  Version: BeFaster 4.3

Pros

This is a malicious piece of software.

Cons

Do not download this program. It installs malware, and a bunch of sneaky extra stuff. When you try to use the program, it simply doesn't work!
