So, you’ve decided to fine-tune your PC by using a performance optimizer.
But there are hundreds of products available on market and to find a solution that fits your need can be daunting.
In this week’s article, I will explain what performance optimizers are and how they work while suggesting what you should look for when choosing such a utility.
Performance optimizers are software utilities that allow you to ensure your PC is automatically optimized and its performance maximized.
These tools should also allow you to keep your PC running at peak performance.
When too many of your resources are being occupied unnecessarily or beyond certain levels that you have established.
The software should warn you to take immediate action.
Performance optimizers should automatically fine-tune all your resources: hardware (CPU and memory) and your system settings.
This will help you enjoy a faster, cleaner and more stable environment that will greatly minimize slowdowns and crashes.
Performance optimizers dig into your hardware and free up valuable resources, remove system hogs that slow your computer down or cause it to crash.
By looking at how your CPU is processing information for all tasks or processes at hand. These utilities determine best configuration, so that you can make most of your computer.
These tools also look at whether tasks at hand are accounted for by legitimate programs.
For example, some performance optimizers are able to recognize that CPU is handling a process that is spyware and should enable you to automatically scan your system and remove such threats.
When optimizing memory, performance optimizers look at how your computer is using RAM and how Windows is creating and operating page file (or virtual) memory.
By optimizing RAM memory, these tools help your computer avoid creating virtual memory.
Moreover, they can also minimize size of your virtual memory file.
Many performance optimizers, like SpeedUpMyPC, also have warning messages so that if your memory usage reaches a critical level, you could take remedial action.
In some cases, these nifty utilities allow you to assign more CPU resources to any particular application that you are running, e.g. a game or a DVD.
