Editors' review

This program aims to help you enhance your PC's performance by optimizing system and interface settings and cleaning away unnecessary stuff. The wizard lets you view and fix problems with your PC. You can experiment freely because the program backs up your PC configuration. It also deletes unnecessary or dangerous files such as the Internet cache, cookies, temporary items, and unused DLLs. You can optimize your Internet connection using presets for your type of connection or adjusting settings yourself. A tangled interface is WinSpeedUp's weakest point. Although it finds invalid entries in the Registry, it's difficult to view such items and impossible to sort them. The most interesting options let you set transparency for each window and hide items from the Start menu. The trial version has most of the functions disabled. Users who want to speed up their restarts will find this download worth the trouble.

    "Not bad at all. (Referring to version 2.7.)"

    November 09, 2006   |   By TopGunSFx

    Version: WinSpeedUp 2.6

    Pros

    Does a great job speeding up PC, has tons of tweaks that make life a lot easier and cleans a lot of the unnecessary stuff of your drive. Overall definitly worth it, make sure you keep your back-ups handy though.

    Cons

    It's still got a few bugs to be worked out, nothing serious, mainly just a few UI problems. I would also like to see Winspeedup not show options and/or tweaks that do not apply to your particular system. (One of the above mentioned bugs, options appear disabled in Winspeedup but do NOT appear disabled in the Windows GUI, whether or not it is or is not disabled you will have to find by experimentation. Not to horribly difficult.
