Review: SpeedUpMyPC Software

PCWorld: Review – SpeedUpMyPC Software

The software works but doesn’t provide enough information about what it’s doing, the reviewer says. Price: $40 (free lmited functionality trial).

“SpeedUpMyPC ($40, free feature-limited demo) is a pretty self-explanatory app. It performs various tweaks, modifies your PC, adds in little applets, and empties the trash and temporary files–all in an attempt to make your PC run better, stronger, faster. Just like the recently reviewed System Mechanic, though, SpeedUpMyPC doesn’t give enough information about exactly what it’s doing.

Scanning is fast; it took only a minute on my test PC. SpeedUpMyPC reports its results in three categories: Speed Tools, System Tweaks, and Junk Files. Under Speed Tools, SpeedUpMyPC mentions a CPU Manager. The Manage tab goes into a little detail about what it does: It’s an applet that keeps an eye on your CPU usage so that processes with memory leaks can’t use up all that CPU.”
