Though you may not need all this full-performance enhancer has to offer, you'll find it capable of almost anything. PC Optimizer lays out each of its performance pieces in guided categories, such as System Tools, File Tools, and Security Tools. Its system-tools area details used and free space and blocks unwanted start-up programs from running. You can also scan and dump unwanted junk files, temp files, and duplicates from any drive or folder, although scanning is a bit slow. Secured deletion also works well but slowly, and you can choose from one of five deletion methods or define your own number of wipes. The program gives a complete list of deleted items and can wipe the disk space clean as well. PC Optimizer has standard Registry tools, such as for backing up, cleaning, restoring, and system defragmenting. As if that's not enough, you'll also be able to clean up some Windows and online tracks from surfing with Internet Explorer, Opera, and Netscape. Though users of all levels may find themselves drawn to one or two areas, we recommend you let PC Optimizer scan your system using all its muscle. You'll like what it can do.
