Editors' Review

Cacheman is designed to optimize your computer and help you free up and manage your system resources. But despite its claim to the contrary, it isn't a tool for the novice user.

Pros

Easy-to-use features: The cluttered interface may be daunting to less experienced users, but the large icons at the top of the small interface offer easy access to the Auto-Optimize, Free RAM now!, and Cleanup features. Below that, tabs for Memory Management, Performance Tweaks, and other options allow users to change settings with just a few clicks.

Decent Help file: If you're not sure about the settings or options Cacheman offers, the Help file not only explains the features, but also explains some of the settings. For example, the Cache tab includes DNS Net Failure cache, which the Help file defines in the section for Cache. Still, understanding what something is doesn't mean you're ready to start making system tweaks on your own, so users should still proceed with caution.

Cons

Overload for novices: Although the publishers claim it is appropriate for novice users, the multi-tabbed interface will probably overwhelm most inexperienced users.

Limited trial version: You're only offered one basic profile for the auto-optimization process. The others are only available when you purchase the product. And while we weren't able to determine if it was due solely to the trial version limitations, our PC didn't run noticeably faster or better after using the software.

Bottom Line

For experienced users who want an easy way to access and change settings to improve your PC's performance, Cacheman may be the answer. For everyone else, even with the Help file definitions, Cacheman is probably a tool you should avoid altogether.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Cacheman 7.90.

"Good program!"

April 26, 2015  |  By Hammer842

 |  Version: Cacheman 7.90

Pros

I've been using Cacheman since 2002 (yes, you read that right) and run it on all my computers. They actually DO boot and run faster. Contrary to something I read, Cacheman can be used by a computer novice: just run the Auto-Optimize tool. I love the System Tray icons to monitor system stats (I display "Free Ram" and "Total CPU Usage", in addition to CPU temperature from another product). I recently had a problem where my computer locked up. Cacheman showed 100% CPU usage and free RAM rapidly decreasing. I couldn't open Task Manager to find and kill the offending process because, as I said, the computer had locked up. But Cacheman WAS responsive and allowed me to identify the culprit.

Cons

No problems that I can find.

"May speed up PC A BIT"

February 09, 2015  |  By zoorick

 |  Version: Cacheman 7.90

Pros

Well, it certainly can speed up your PC, but the difference will be slight. Just don't expect much.

Cons

A rather confusing software with steep learning curve.

Summary

Not bad, but not fantastic either. You can actually get a similar result by cleaning your cache with Ccleaner or something like that,
