Regular cleaning helps keep your PC running like new, but it's not enough: you need speed. UniBlue's SpeedUpMyPC 2013 with Registry Booster not only purges junk files and defragments your PC's registry, on demand or on schedule, but its Active Speed Tools can tweak nearly any PC's performance. For example, its CPU Manager keeps runaway processes from using up available system resources, while the Start Menu Software Accelerator launches your apps quicker. Of course, you can also deselect any tool you don't want to run or any item you don't want to clean, as well as add items to SpeedUpMyPC's ignore list, and even roll back any changes you don't like. You can schedule regular cleaning and optimizing, too. SpeedUpMyPC 2013 is free to try but only fixes 15 errors. Recent updates include Windows 8 compatibility.

SpeedUpMyPC's installer addresses a longstanding issue we've had with system cleaners: namely, scanning as soon as the program opens and before we've had a chance to see what it does and review its options. We simply unchecked the box labeled Automatically Start Scanning on Launch. SpeedUpMyPC's user interface bears a general resemblance to other tools of its type; it's a bit loud and busy, at least on the Overview tab, but simple enough to understand, with links to a Quick Start Guide and Help feature in the LiveUpdate section. In addition to the Overview, SpeedUpMyPC has three more tabs: System Scan, Perform+, and Manage. We clicked Manage and opened the program's Settings, which include the Scheduler, Proxy settings, and some general options. We could also access the Undo changes tool, the Registry ignore list, and the Registry repair logs.

Our scan completed quickly and turned up several items our lightweight regular scanner had missed and that we could choose to fix, ignore for now, or add to the ignore list. SpeedUpMyPC fixed all errors after taking a registry backup. It also identified some minor speed impediments and recommended some tweaks, some of which we implemented, such as disabling performance counters. Others we didn't need. The Perform+ tab accesses more tweaks, including a Proactive Thumbnail Generator. SpeedUpMyPC 2013 is recommended for PCs new and old.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of SpeedUpMyPC 2013 5.3.4.5. The trial version can fix up to 15 errors only.

"Awful Experience - Do Not Install This Software"

August 13, 2013  |  By vabutter

 |  Version: SpeedUpMyPC 2013 5.3.4.5

Pros

No benefits - the software runs and says it updates ther registry but I saw no changes to performance and really wonder WHAT it is doing to the registry

Cons

1) Software not stay registered.. I had to re-register the key every time I booted up.
2) Tech support was totally NOT helpful - they told me to remove my anti-virus software, my anti-spam software and my password software - which I will not do.
3) After installing an "update" to Uniblue, a Malware Bytes scan determined that the Uniblue software was loaded with adware and malware. I uninstalled Uniblue completely and lost my purchase $
4) Beware - Uniblue automatically charges your credite card anually whether you renew or not - it is in the fine print.

Summary

I do not recommend this software nor this company - I will not do business with them again.

"Doesn't work - failed to achieve any speed improvements"

June 26, 2013  |  By Suntechsyd

 |  Version: SpeedUpMyPC 2013 5.3.4.5

Pros

Minor processing footprint.

Cons

The software failed to provide any noticeable improvements to boot-time, processing speed and program through-put.

The claims of the software could not be demonstrably substantiated.

The package just took up RAM and processing power like an additional and annoying browser add-on.

Summary

Definitely not worth the purchase price.

One would be better off investing in additional RAM to improve PC/Laptop performance.

I took the route of buying RAM for which I paid $45 (AUD) instead of wasting $30 (AUD) on this software.

*Lesson learned and I will not be recommending and Uniblue products.

"Another program that CLAIMED to be free, but wasn't."

June 18, 2013  |  By onedesertrat

 |  Version: SpeedUpMyPC 2013 5.3.4.5

Pros

None that I could see.

Cons

This is just another program that CLAIMS to be "free" but isn't.

Summary

I was reading CNET's review of Google Chrome. Next to it (NOT marked as an "Ad") was a warning to run this "free" program before downloading the Google program. I saved this "SpeedUp..." program, ran it and THEN found out it was NOT FREE. I'm sick of these programs that CLAIM TO BE FREE.
