PRODUCT FEATURES

The SOFTWARE needs to make changes to the USER’s computer to work as required to optimize and protect the USER’s computer. These changes are summarised here.

This product helps the user to optimize PC performance by following several optimization procedures which are listed below. Startup optimization - program monitors Windows startup sequence, including the time it takes to load various programs, resource allocation of loaded programs and its usefulness. The Program uploads the statistics to the central server, where the analytics engine compares the current user's PC with PCs of other users and suggests optimizations suitable for the user's configuration.

Background application optimization - program monitors applications that are using Windows services when the application is not running. These Windows services consume PC resources even if their primary program is not running. This optimization automatically switches off these services when they are not needed.

Unnecessary services - program asks the user several questions regarding his PC usage. Based on the answers program disables certain services which are not needed for the user but slowing down the performance of his PC.

Disk defragmentation - program scans the hard drive and performs disk defragmentation when needed System & Network settings - program checks for many different settings, mainly in the Windows Registry, which are affecting Windows performance or stability. It performs several registry optimization tricks to boost internet speed and browser responsiveness on older PCs. It also monitors Power Plan on laptops which may affect PC performance if configured improperly.

Junk files - program scans the hard drive for unneeded files and suggest to the user files which can be removed safely.

Anti-virus – program monitors existing files, running processes and downloaded content for malware. Where necessary, files are deleted, quarantined or blocked and processes stopped to prevent malware being installed or being run on the USER’s computer.
