Editors' Review

+
This application rapidly scans and locates errors and junk files that may be hindering your PC's performance but this trial doesn't fix what it finds. PC Pitstop Optimizer is quite user-friendly, thanks to its step-by-step guide that scans your hard drive for temporary files, cache, and junk files left in the Recycle Bin. It promises to adjust Windows and Internet settings to speed up and improve your computer's performance by clearing your Registry of invalid entries. While we were impressed with its speedy output, the software's ability to clean up and optimize PC performance requires registration. With its trial limitations, you might want to drive past this trial if you want to actually optimize your machine.

    "Pitstop has helped increase the speed of my computer."

    February 09, 2011   |   By chisiro

    Version: PC Pitstop Optimize 3.0

    Pros

    Easy to install and easy to run each time I want to use it. It provides a useful summary or ways to increase my computer speed and gives me the ability to accept or reject any recommendation.

    Cons

    I still would like to see a faster speed on my computer after running the program but I do get improvement after doing it.

    Summary

    I would recommend this product if you are looking for a way to increase your computer speed with a computer that you have had for some time and you are not ready to buy a new one.

    What's new in version 3.0
    Version 3.0 includes: User Log In: No more remembering license keys. Once you have established a user log in and password, you can quickly and easily install Optimize on any PC. Now it is a lot easier to manage the performance of so many PC's. Scheduler: We have also implemented a truly revolutionary scheduler which enables you to run Optimize without you being present at the PC. But that's not the revolutionary part. It's revolutionary because you don't have to be present at the computer to schedule an event. Once the software is installed, as long as you have your user log in and password, you can schedule remotely from any other computer in the world!
