"Not useful"

November 08, 2010  |  By chngan

 |  Version: DSL Speed 6.5

Pros

Actually nothing special.

Cons

It needs you to reboot after you press the Optimize button. After your PC reboots, some of the programs activated at start-up do not appear at the taskbar. They just are not activated and need to manually open it at the Start menu bar.

Summary

Cumbersome to use this app as you need to reboot everytime you want to optimize your PC. Then the some settings at start-up are out. And you won't notice any great improvements in terms of speed when you doing networking or surfing the internet.

"help! problems!"

October 12, 2010  |  By CHARLESANDERSON2

 |  Version: DSL Speed 6.5

Pros

i downloaded this onto a xp home computer, and after it loaded, the program told me to restart my computer.

Cons

i did so, and now everytime i start up my computer, windows will run for about 30 seconds, some startup programs begin to run, and then it reboots. i assume this program runs at startup, and is shutting it down. but i dont have time to delete it.

"Save your money!!!!!!!!"

September 17, 2010  |  By Shezman

 |  Version: DSL Speed 6.5

Pros

what pro's? Actually slowed down my internet to a crawl, because it reverted the setting to those used for dial up, when I am using high speed dsl.

Cons

Doesn't speed up your internet, it slows it to a crawl, as their trial version reverts your internet to dial up settings in order to get you to purchase the real version...

Summary

There are better programs out there that are way better than this.

I recommended IObits Free Advanced system care, just click on the utilities button, and on the internet connection optimizer, and on the recommended button, and it does everything else for you, the only thing you have to know is your download speed, and you can get that for free at speedtest.net.

If your computer savvy and know what your doing I recommend using speedguide.nets' ip/tcp optimizer, it is also free, but for beginners I suggest you use the advanced system care, why pay for something you can get absolutely free here on download.com?
