Free System Tools

By VAS Software Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

This suite of system tools are too simple compared against stand-alone freeware in their respective genres. Oddly, the VAS Free System Tools can be called only from a toolbar pop-up menu. Though most functions are simple, none of the tools offer a Help menu for novice users.

VAS Startup Manager separates the program list between current user and all users. A simple click opens a small dialog to create, delete, or modify a key. The default Windows Add/Remove Tool performs much better than the VAS Uninstall Manager which offers only a simple list of installed applications and an uninstall button. The VAS Registry Editor is slow, unwieldy, and inferior to RegEdit. The VAS Disk Cleaner scans for and deletes temporary files, recent file lists, temporary Internet files, and cookies. However, it can scan and delete only one type at a time. The VAS Memory Optimizer offers only three optimization levels with no available adjustments. The application will automatically optimize if available RAM falls below a user selected value.

These tools work simply, but they don't beat the standard Windows tools in most cases and users with any experience will already have much more comprehensive and flexible freeware applications at hand.
