A free app that may help speed up your PC
Boost - Speed up your PC is a small and simple program that you install onto your local hard drive on your PC. It removes temporary files and switches off some of your apps to increase the speed of your PC. The program consists of buttons that you press to activate the program. There is very little customizing or setting up required.
Removes files and disables some programs
The app/program is able to access tools that your web browsers and your PC allow users to access. Instead of you going into the tools on your PC yourself, this app does it for you and removes files such as temporary Internet files and so forth. Freeing up this space may help some PCs run faster if the PC’s hard drive is almost full. The app will disable some of your current programs in order to free up the CPU power. However, within minutes, many of the background services and programs are running again, which means that some people will only experience a temporary speed increase when using this app.
Best used by people who have a very unorganized PC
If you have used your PC like a dumping ground for files, and if you have not run maintenance on your PC for a long time, then Boost - Speed up your PC may allow you to continue in that manner. Even quarterly maintenance of your PC will help you avoid many of the issues that Boost - Speed up your PC masks over. Its ability to remove temporary and semi-temporary files may be useful to some people.
