    "Actually works!"

    February 28, 2012  |   By sham66

    Pros

    Actually increases game performance and reduced online latency issues.
    Easy to use interface.
    Tons of options.
    Works with Windows 7!
    Can switch from game mode to normal mode on the fly.
    Built in Defragger for games and other demanding applications.

    Cons

    Doesn't allow commands to be added to game shortcuts. If you want a shortcut to have specfic commands (like -window -vidmode etc). You have to make the shortcut yourself on your desktop; add the commands; and then drag the shortcut over to the game booster menu.

    Summary

    I was having problems within various games under windows 7; such as slowdown, online lag. Even after trying many system tweaks and shutting down many background applications. So I decided to give this program a chance. After trying programs like this in the past I didn't expect much. Well...I was wrong, this one actually does work. Windows 7 and Vista have so many background services and applications running. Many of them can cause serious lag issues; especially in online games. You can try disabling them yourself, but there's so many of them. Not to mention shutting them down can cause serious system errors.

    With Game Booster on the other hand this all done automatically in the background. Simply add your game or application shortcut to menu and click boost. All of the unnecessary background task are suspended temporary while playing your game. After the game is closed down; game booster initiates all of the background task and returns windows to it's standard operations.
