Auslogics BoostSpeed 5.1 Honest Review Plus Giveaway
Windows users these days can find plenty of system optimization applications which promises to make their slow computer system fast. But let us be frank, most of these utilities are a disappointment. The come bundled with a lot of useless stuff which instead of speeding up, slows down your PC further. Some of them even kills your Windows system by mindlessly removing critical registry entries or system files.
There are some exceptions available to the above set, which do what they promises to do. Auslogics BoostSpeed is one such system optimization software which is one of the best among those which we have reviewed earlier. We took the latest version of BoostSpeed, Auslogics BoostSpeed 5.1, for a test ride. Below you will read about how it performs in our test and whether it is really worth the money. By the way, did we mention about a surprise at the end of this review?
Auslogics BoostSpeed is a program which really can revitalize your system. The program uses trusted and tested useful system optimization techniques and technologies to take care of your PCs performance. And, you don’t need to have a PhD in Windows or be an expert to use this program. It comes with many integrated utilities which lets you easily tweak almost every area of your computer system.
BoostSpeed installer is small and is just 8 MB (8.09 MB) in size. The installation process is smooth and is typically Windows application install process, where you just click on Next, Next and Install. With minimal user interaction during installation, you do can customize where to install the application, select the options for creating shortcuts of the application, etc.
Even though the “control center” of the program looks sparse compared to TuneUp System Utilities 2011 or WinZip System Utilities, but we like this approach. The user interface is basically divided into four sections: System Scan, System Advisor, Resource Usage and Advanced Tools. You can click on the tabs to get access to the different sections or you can do so from the View menu.
System Scan tab opens up by default when you first launch the application. This tab includes only a “Scan Now” button which finds Registry Errors, Junk files, Disk Error and Disk Fragmentation. After you launch the application for the first time, it recommends scanning your system for registry errors, junk files, disk errors and disk fragmentation. The scan itself is fast and after it finishes, you can see the end-result of the scan. In our test, the application found 3387 issues. We did a review of what it found in details by checking the “Show Details” option. After that we clicked on the “Repair Now” option. After the process completed, we noticed that we have recovered 790 MB of disk space.
After cleaning up, we viewed the log generated by the program. The log is nicely laid out and opens up in your default browser.
In the right-side of System Scan, you will find “Quick Tasks” to erase browser history, Windows history, temporary files and optimize memory.
When you select the System Advisor tab, it automatically starts scanning your system for performance improvements and potential security issues. After the scan gets over, it provides you a number of fixes for the issues, it found in your system. We got the following fixes, which you can see in the screenshot below.
The Resource Usage tab basically displays current CPU, RAM, Disk and Network usage of your system. If you click on the “View Details” link, it opens up its own Task Manager which provides detailed information about everything and offers you more control than Windows Task Manager.
One thing we like about BoostSpeed Task Manager is its unique “Rating” feature. This feature categorizes each process into Trustworthy processes and Unknown processes. Thus making it easy to find suspicious processes.
Through the Advanced Tools tab, you can get access to more utilities for: Disk Maintenance, Free Up Space, Software Control, System tweaks, Disaster Recovery, Registry Maintenance, System Status, Privacy and Speed Up Internet.
These utilities are for the advanced users who want more control over their system and how it works.
Auslogics BoostSpeed performed well in all our tests. It recovered around 800 MB of disk space compared to 100 MB of Windows inbuilt Disk Cleaner. It also optimized our system with effective and easy to apply optimization. Our system performs faster now. You can see for yourself by downloading the trial version.
Best in the class and fast disk cleanup, easy to use startup manager, fast disk defragment, effective Internet connection optimizer, good task manager alternative and noticeable system optimization.
Sparse details in rescue center, no in-built application update, you have to visit their website to download.
