Editors' Review

There's more than one way to speed up a slow PC. For instance, you can upgrade your hardware by adding more RAM or a faster hard disk. You can remove a lot of your programs or reinstall Windows entirely. Or you can try a program like SpeedItup Free, a free tool for tweaking, cleaning, and boosting PCs, especially older and slower units. It works automatically in the background to recover memory resources, clean system caches, and erase browsing traces. Its Super Defrag tool is supposed to optimize hard disks, improving performance by up to 150 percent, according to its developer.

SpeedItup Free essentially bundles three tools with automatic scheduling and other options, and its colorful, compact interface has three tabs for the three tools. The first tool, SpeedItup, offers four processes, each with a check box: Windows Optimization, Ram Booster, Internet Cleanup, and HardDisk SpeedUp. The other two tabs access the Internet Cleanup and HardDisk SpeedUp tools individually. A large speedometer dial dominates the interface. The program's only options cover automatic startup and operation, plus the ability to delete tracking cookies and select Firefox, IE, Opera, and Chrome for cleaning. The Help button called up a page summarizing what the program does in sketchy detail; for instance, it "first optimizes your windows settings" to boost performance. We can think of lots of ways to do that, and we'd like to know what's being changed, but SpeedItup doesn't share that information. But its RAM booster and tweaks caused no fuss. The disk defrag tool notes that the first pass can take 5 minutes to 3 hours but that subsequent passes are quicker. Ours took less than an hour.

SpeedItup offers to download another of the company's system cleaners, which is fairly typical since the company's in business to sell software. We have no problem with ad-supported freeware, nags, or ad pop-ups (SpeedItup's pop-up is mild by comparison) as long as the program does what it claims without a trial period or requiring you to buy anything. SpeedItup does what it claims. One point, speed demons: Never run Super Defrag, or any disk defragmenting tool (even the Windows defragger) on a solid-state drive (SSD). SSDs don't need defragging, and it just wears them out faster.

"My PC is now faster than when it was brand new."

April 21, 2013  |  By Susie2666

 |  Version: SpeedItup Free 7.80

Pros

I downloaded this software last week and now my computer is extremely fast. My youtube video streams immediately after hitting play, where as before I use too to have to wait 5 to 10 minutes to watch one video. I love this software!

Cons

I truly could not find any cons.

Summary

Do yourself a favor and download ASAP! This software offers you to upgrade to other services, however it's totally optional.

 |  Version: SpeedItup Free 7.80

Pros

Thought I would try the 4.95 Pro Upgrade without READING ALL MENBERSHIP AGREEMENT, BIG MISTAKE THIS ALSO SIGNS YOU ON LIFETIME MENBERSHIP FOR $199.95

Cons

I was not able get the Pro verison to work on my computer , Kept getting error , could be my computer

Summary

SINCE NOT READING CAREFULL MENBERSHIP AGREEMENT,THAT WHEN SIGNING UP FOR $ 4.95 TRIAL PRO UPGRADE ,YOU ARE ALSO SIGNING CONTRCT FOR LIFETIME FOR $199.95AND HAVE 7 DAYS TO CONTACT THEM AND CANCEL CONTRACT. WAS NOT AWARE OF THIS ,TIL RECEIVED CREDIT CARE STATEMENT AT END OF MONTH. TRIED CHARGEBACK, BUT ACCORDING TO CRED CARD CO. THIS IS A LEGAL PROCESS. NO CHARGEBACK. ON 3-15-2013 SENT 2 EMAILS REQUESTING REFUND. REASON : THIS WAS A MISTAKE AND I AM A SENIOR CITIZEN. AS OF TODAY 3-22-2013 MIRCROSMART HAS NOT SENT A ANSWER. WEBB SITES 24-48 HOURS EMAILS WILL BE ANSWERED.

"DO NOT INSTALL"

January 31, 2013  |  By myafws

 |  Version: SpeedItup Free 7.80

Pros

NONE (why do I need to have 10 Characters if there are NO Pros?)

Cons

Gives no information on what it is doing so I stopped it. Adds lots of things even if you say not to. Took me an hour to get everything removed.

Summary

CNET did a bad review on this one.

"Works Great - BE Careful"

December 19, 2012

 |  Version: SpeedItup Free 7.80

Pros

Speeds up moving around windows and accessing programs greatly. It re-configures your hard-drive for much faster access. The company also has their own removal program should you wish to do so. Use theirs.
FYI about my system (this program works best on older systems....)
Vista Ultimate, Dual Core 2.66gig Pentium Processor, 4 gigs ram. Radion 4800 video card with 1 gig video ram.

Cons

There is also an offer to "upgrade" the program for $4.97. READ THE PRINT...if you download this you also agree to a one week trial of "gold" online computer services which has a one-time fee of $199.00!!
However, if you only download the Speeditup Free program (use CNET.com) you don't get any ads or anything...at least I haven't. I love it.

In their defense, the company also offers a separate Silver membership service of online repair for ANY problem for $11.00 a month. This includes telephone contact and the ability for them to remote connect to your computer and figure out what is wrong. The warranties and stuff on these services seem good. Could not find anything adverse about them on the Internet. They have been in business since 1993.

Summary

Great program...read the fine print if you BUY anything! This is a FREE program.

October 02, 2012  |  By ksanli

 |  Version: SpeedItup Free 7.80

Pros

I have no idea what it does. It seems doing something.

Cons

Don't waste your time

Summary

they charge 4.99 for lifetime membership. Then load all the other things $39.99, 49.99 and so on. Total BS.I will call for a refund.

Updated on Oct 4, 2012

Here is their response to my refund email.
Sorry, we were unable to deliver your message to the following address.

<support@secure-processingcenter.com>:

Updated on Oct 12, 2012

It seems they are honest. They paid back what they charged initially. So maybe the way to do the business on the net.
