"It worked great for me"

August 02, 2009  |  By slimjim1942

 |  Version: Vista Services Optimizer 1.1.42.2

Pros

I had some buffering problems with videos and page loading speed even though my download speed tests were 28 to 30 megs. Auto tuneup fixed it, in 15 seconds

Cons

There is nothing not to like.

"Works as expected"

July 19, 2009  |  By foley316

 |  Version: Vista Services Optimizer 1.1.42.2

Pros

*Manual Mode
*Easily explains what services are attached to what programs

Cons

*Automatic mode is to general

Summary

Basically all this program does is allow you to turn off windows services by telling it what you will and will not use. This is something you can do with services.msc or msconfig on your own but the interface makes it simple to know exactly what each service is for. It also speeds up the process by not making you turn off each service one by one for a particular use because it will instead ask you a simple question (i.e. Do you share files over a network?). I rate this 4/5 because it does very easily let you adjust services and optimize Vista but does not do anything that you couldn't do yourself.

"Made my unbearably slow laptop very bearable."

July 10, 2009  |  By ALO1971

 |  Version: Vista Services Optimizer 1.1.42.2

Pros

Easy to use. Create a profile based on the questions you're asked and then use it. Can always revert to original settings if necessary.

Cons

Nothing to complain about. I wish there was a 1-click setting from the tray to switch profiles.

Summary

The bottom line: my laptop was unbearably slow before VSO. I noticed a big improvement afterward.

"Unsung App Deserves Attention in Doing a Great Job"

April 18, 2009  |  By msavoy

 |  Version: Vista Services Optimizer 1.1.42.2

Pros

Competently ameliorates Vista's overwrought programming that's been a giant step backwards in the evolution of the OS. Combined with an extended online how-to guide on the best Vista tweaks,you'll end up wondering why users hate Vista.

Cons

If you have Vista Services Optimizer running at start-up you won't be able to reconfigure the program only after deleting it from the Start Up Manager and rebooting.

Summary

The program describes itself innocently enough as a much needed tool to help overcome the bloated, overwrought monstrosity it is

As an avowed Microsoft hater, Vista has proven something I thought was impossible that indeed I could manage to despise Microsoft more than I had. Vista Services Optimizer seems to be the perfect tool,
weapon specially created by Microsoft haters for Micrsoft haters like myself, having installed it in a fiery rage against Microsft after a series of incidents over several weeks where a slew of Vista-inspired hindrances, obstacles to enable the simplest tasks that my computer had refused to comply with had me livid beyond belief.

After having thought the worst of Vista's steep -learning curve was finally behind me, the worst most annoying aspect of Vista was the last straw. I saved several images found at Google on my desktop I had planned on uploading as my avatar at this new site but the images never uploading properly wondering why,until I noticed that Vista had blocked the images that were on my desktop from uploading to the site with a message that emphatically convinced me i want no part of Microsoft ever again. Images you downloaded may have originated from another computer that acquired the images illegally. or something to that effect. And that my friends was the last straw for me.
