Uniblue has recently integrated its popular Registry Booster software into SpeedUpMyPC to provide users with an even more powerful system tweaking utility to boost PC performance. With so many settings, resources, registry entries and processes to check in Windows, it can be almost impossible to identify why your computer is running slow. Unless you plan on reinstalling your Operating System each year, you will need to be proactive in your computer maintenance or suffer loss in speed. This type of maintenance usually requires advanced computer knowledge and a lot of time to perform manually.
This is why we like SpeedUpMyPC. It’s a program tailored to seek out and apply fixes that can improve your computer’s overall performance.
How To Use SpeedUpMyPC
First, download SpeedUpMyPC to begin your scan. Once the software is installed, a scan will ensue. Follow the onscreen prompts if issues are detected with your computer.
You can monitor the progress of the scan, the numbers of issues in each category, and the severity of the speed loss resulting in those issues.
There are several options under the Speed Tools section to help make the computer more efficient.
CPU Manager – The CPU Manager ensures that runaway processes do not monopolize your the CPU’s resources.
Proactive Thumbnail Generator – The Proactive Thumbnail Generator saves thumbnail data to disk for faster access.
Start Menu Software Accelerator – Improves launch speed for programs accessed through the Start menu.
Software launch Booster – The Software Launch Booster speeds up software start-ups by boosting resources allocated to them.
The SpeedUpMyPC scan will also reveal system tweaks that can be performed. These include:
- System Resource Management
- Boot-up and Shutdown Tweaks
- Windows User Interface Tweaks
You can view each of these individually to deselect those you do not want fixed, if any.
SPeedUpMyPC can also deactivate unused processes and services that can help free up resources. Click the drop-down arrow next to Unused Processes to view the items and deselect any you do not want to disable. These can include:
- Background Processes
- Unused Windows Services
- Startup Processes
Invalid Registry Entries To Clean
Another performance tweak handles invalid registry entries by cleaning the ones that accumulate in the registry and bog down your Operating System.
We recommend allowing SpeedUpMyPC to fix all of the invalid entries.
Optimizing Your Computer
Once the scan is completed, you will see how many performance issues need to be addressed. Click the Fix Issues button to proceed.
SpeedUpMyPC is quick to make a backup of your system configuration in case any changes need to be restored. It then proceeds to fix the issues with your computer. Depending on the state of your computer prior to the scan, you could see a dramatic increase in your computer’s performance. If you feel you need to restore the registry, click the Manage tab at the top and then select the Registry section.
Check the date you want to revert back to and then click the Restore Registry button to undo the changes that were made.
Scan your computer with SpeedUpMyPC to see if your computer is experiencing performance issues.
