I run a Mac generally - and there is none of this rubbish!
I researched and got an advice from the net regarding using Advanced System Care to clean up my 2 computers and the software really did the job for me. The less powerful one with only 1 Gb memory had lost about 75% of the speed after I'd installed and removed the various investment software during a 2 years period. Advanced System Care help me to regain the 2/3 of the speed that it'd lost.Yes, exactly. I had been using CCleaner previously anyway, but became suspicious that perhaps something on the software side was slowing things up anyway.
As you said, I formatted the hard drive, installed windows and loaded up software from scratch again. I was a bit disappointed that (subjectively) it seemed no different from before.
Perhaps software gets more resource hungry as it get revised as has been suggested, or perhaps it's just my memory playing tricks on me.
....I think NetTecture is probably saying that one nowadays should not have to tweak files like we used to in past...remember Autoecec.bat and Confid.sys...that needed tweaking to run flight sim....?Did you mean (run) msconfig.exe ? That certainly is of this Millenium & is very useful !
Yes! Absolutely agree with the sentiment. But if you take a look via msconfig.exe it's quite surprising how much unnecessary software is running - all consuming resources. Much of it is put there when programs are first installed, and constantly checks for updates etc etc.....I think NetTecture is probably saying that one nowadays should not have to tweak files like we used to in past...remember Autoecec.bat and Confid.sys...that needed tweaking to run flight sim....?
Writing efficient software is very difficult and it is much easier (and cheaper) to produce lesser software which depends on sheer computer brute force processing powerand lots of memory. No problem with that of course - the customer loves to pay extra for fancy software as long as it's got a snazzy interface.
It all helps to keep the wheels of business turning!
Wasn't this system of "customer testing" first developed by British Leyland aka Rover with their wonderful cars? Why waste money on R&D when the customer will do it for you for free!...Most bugs were ironed out before release....Not now.......and then came Win 3.00...and suddenly all software got very lethargic, and slowed down in use.....it is released fully bug laden...relying on feedback and guinea pigs to find them so chaps at 1 MS Way can resolve them...!
...Oh I see...she broke it sometime back.......
Without Thatcher where would ARM be?
And if you want to make it a lot faster, install an SSD (ridiculous how miuzch ist even Speeds up booting etc.) and Windows 8 (text drawing about 450% faster than before thanks to doing everything on the graphics Card)What I use is Defender Pro 5-IN-1. It's a anti-virus and also PC repair. This will help boost your speed but, if you want MAX performance and full PC clean, consider getting Defender Pro-PC medic...I Recommend any Defender Pro product. What I have always used.
