This program trashed my internet setting. After running it a few times, my computer said "no wireless connections available. I had to do a restore from a backup copy to recover.

Once you have your windows in hand check the measurements before going any further just in case
the window is the wrong size. However, there are guidelines that can be followed to the troubleshooting
process. My own experience in replacing the windows of a mid-level condo was excellent.

what most don't realize is that an mechanical HD Needs 15-20% free space to operate at optimal efficiency.(especially in case it's the system drive )
The main reason is once a HD storage exceeds 80% fragmentation increases exponentially (especially for larger files)

The big mistake is when determining the amount of storage you need you need to add 20% to what you think you need (Per HD )

Ex:

250 -> 320 gb
500 gb -> 750 gb

For external HD's this is less an issue because they are most commonly used Data/file backup which are rarely modified

Regarding defragging, I have a suggestion 'from left field'
Astute computer owners will be imaging their hard drive ( hopefully to an external 3.5" drive in a dock ).
In addition to that, purchase a 2nd hard drive, similar to the one inside your computer.
After creating an image to your dock, remove the internal drive, and place in your underwear drawer. Insert the new drive, and restore your image into it.
Shirley that would restore fully defragmented ?
I have not read that anywhere, it just occurred to me

This the perfect example of how valuable the "comments" can be. I've downloaded a bunch of Utilities from this site and 'for the most part' have been lucky. I can tell you if the pros suggest you watch out for the registry...it's probably a good idea. And if you don't know how to create a system restore before you run it...you would have to be a fool not to pay attention. Always read the comments. Pay attention to the heavy hitters. I really want my vista to go fast ... but I don't need it to go that fast. Thanks all ssooooo much. Like the man says ...cull some stuff your not using first. Thanks gotd.

How do I get the ".GCD file" to open/run/install? Everything else went smoothy until i came to this step. The instructions for that step also say the following:

"!!!! .GCD file included is necessary for correct installation and activation. Please make sure to extract all enclosed files to the same folder. After successful activation and installation you may safely delete GOTD installation files from your PC (including .GCD)!!!".

What do I do now?

Re: Disc Degragmentaton - I have yet to see a Windows O.S. that doesn't need defragging. I use XP, Windows 7, and Windows 8.1. Maybe the other members of GOTD know something that I don't, but read what defragmentation really does. As far as speeding up an O. S. I've been using SpeedItUp Free for years with positive results and no complaints. I'm giving BoostSpeed a shot. As far as having and fears of it doing damage to my registry, watching youtube can do that just fine. I do a ton of downloading, and it slows down my PC in doing so. Not much, but it does slow it down.
" We have nothing to fear but fear itself. " Thank you, GOTD! I'll even enjoy this older version. Note" I won't uninstall via reboot :]

Today's Giveaway is not really a Giveaway so to speak it's a one year license. I know I usually try to steer clear of saying these comments on subscription programs but the last time I used it, I did not get to use the program for 5 days until it told me that a license was deactivated. Since I can't reinstall it's not really worth it.

However Auslogics Disk Defrag Free, Auslogics Registry Cleaner Free, and Auslogics Registry Defrag Free are pretty good however as these programs are capable of doing "Deep Cleans and deep defragmentation" where the others have features missing, however these " Free " programs come with bundleware that asks you to change your home page if you don't uncheck the boxes and do a "custom install". Something a "Microsoft Certified Partner" should not be engaging in behaviorwise.

Since CCleaner does a great job of cleaning out junk files and Defraggler does a decent job of defragmenting with very minor nuisances it's best to stick with them.

Just keep in mind, it's a toolbox, where some tools must be handled with care. Don't use any reg cleaners - and not at all in a one click optimizer. I'll recommend to stick to Wise Registry Cleaner....still at your own risk. Otherwise the older versions of TuneUp Utilities really did boost performance and boot time remarkable. The only program, I've tried during the last couple of years, which did any good in that direction is Kingsoft PC Doctor (NOT the AV solution) : http://www.softpedia.com/get/Security/Security-Related/Kingsoft-PC-Doctor.shtml Just for cleaning at daily basis, CCleaner with CCleaner Enhancer will do. Otherwise run PrivaZer once in a while. Anyway, thanks for generous offer to try yet an optimising tool to Auslogics (great defragger), and thanks to the team behind GOTD for giving us the opportunity to try out various kind of software. Great job, you guys do. Greetz from Denmark.

Like other reviewers I caution against using all-in-one anything - heck, I don't even install Microsoft's "recommended" updates (only important and security updates get installed). But if you must install 'something' try something that boosts your cache usage such as PC Boost (what I use) or O&O's Clever Cache, both of which have been offered here. By boosting the rate at which data is swapped in and out of your cache, you can actually boost your computer's "speed".

If you get an update message, don't update the program because you'll lose this version and get one with limited functionality. I made the mistake the last time I had it from GOTD and when I contacted the company, all they offered was to let me buy the license at half price.

wise care 365 was just issued last week which is an excellent program. it sped up my pc. also what happened to Ashcroft and Giovanni I think they been kick off the site. I uninstalled this program after the first use via reboot it was ok, but slow and not as good as wise care 365 which was very fast and also it last longer than a year. remember this program is only for 1 year and it's not the latest version. I tend to stay away from 1 year programs and the price of $49.99 is way too high for such a saturated program. Puran Utilities and Tool wiz are a couple of programs that can do the same thing as this program plus more.

@ Derek, post #9: Don't be "surprised" at discovering that CCleaner doesn't mop up as much as the cleaner in this Auslogics suite: Piriform, the developer of CCleaner, has a reputation for being conservative in all its software, and because of that originally attracted many thousands of users to it in the days when scareware was much more common than it is now (scareware: so-called cleaners and optimizers that find hundreds of things "wrong" with a computer so as to scare folks into buying / using 'em because they must be good to have found so much.)

Auslogics isn't and never has been into scareware so all that's happening here is that it feels a slightly less conservative approach is feasible without compromising safety. If that's a judgment call folks are happy to live with, fair enough.

Although I hold this Australian developer in high regard, I won't be downloading this suite because I don't subscribe to the one-click-does-everything philosophy. A single-click can -- and will -- simultaneously bring together umpteen different tools that, combined, may inadvertently inflict more harm than good on a computer, whereas if only one tool had been in use rather than the entire box, impact would have been minimised and diagnostics made a darn sight easier.

Backup and restore is, of course, a much publicised facility of all such suites, but it's your OS that decides how it wants to operate, not a software developer, and if in some utterly unexpected fashion crucial system files get damaged by a suite then no, there won't be any way back other than a Windows reformat. It's sad but I guess inevitable, therefore, that the people most likely to resort to one-click-everything are the very people who haven't a clue how to recover from a one-click disaster. They believe in the reliability of System Restore in the same way that little children believe in Santa Claus.

As Karl's timely illustration demonstrates in his addendum to post 4 (as he says, ignore the language, just look at the figures) today's Windows OS is pretty darn clever at diagnosing its own problems and attending to its own needs. Why folks actually pay for commercial software which then merely duplicates Windows' own tools baffles me...

Thanks, then, Auslogics, and thanks, GOTD, but I'll pass on this one: though I can see the convenience of one-click instant fix software, I doubt I'm alone in seeing beyond that to the horrendous inconvenience, and sometimes horrendous cost, of fixing-the-fix when things go wrong.

system Yet, get this, 64 bit capabilities.
Confused , is p.c 32 or 64. [no pun , perhaps is like people's age 50 is the new 30 ? or no?
the up load plus the down load speeds are increased 2.64=2.85

I have used this programme for ages and find it very good. there is a reg defrag but very slow. I also find I use it with Wise Care 365 and Jet clean and it all seems to run well. But I have noticed that all these programmes that help keep the computers running the best they can is only as good as the hardware of the computer and there is always the fact that we tend to clog up out start up with all these programmes that need to use start up to keep you going. At the moment I am using 6.650 and it does well for my Win 7 pro 64 on a Dell Optiplex 780. i would advise using it and it will help (my opinion).

Hey everyone,

I decided to try this Auslogics cleanup software because I tried their Defragger in the past and found it to be a competent program with an easy to use UI. It was missing a few advanced features paid programs contain but it was still a quality program.

I take computer cleanup fairly seriously and use CCleaner with the "advanced" add-ons to clean my system. I use Casper to back up my system so I wasn't too worried about any problems that couldn't be fixed. I DO like the restore option Auslogic uses and it's set to back up any changes it makes by default. That is good to have.

I was a little surprised to find Boostspeed did in fact pick up some items that CCleaner didn't. The majority of the registry items it cleaned up were remnants of programs I once installed but uninstalled. Cleanup worked fine and a backup was made.

To test out how well the backup and restore worked, I scanned for registry issues and deleted 300 file extensions that BoostSpeed consider invalid or empty/unused. Some of these extensions listed concerned me as they included popular extensions like .doc or .mp4. Still I deleted them, then tried to open some .doc files and things still worked properly. Once I restored the deleted files and rescanned, I had exactly 300 file extensions listed.

I was also interested in how Boostspeed claims to increase the speed of my broadband connection (other than removing junk files) so I scanned this area. For my network connection, it wants to adjust the size of my ARP cache and my ACK frequency, among other things. It also wants to adjust my data buffer size. It does not state specifically from the from and to values. In MSIE it wants to adjust the maximum connections per server and in Firefox it wants to disable IPV6. A slightly controversial change it wants to make is to keep the system from reducing the memory allocated to Firefox when it is minimized. Since I do browse frequently and have lots of RAM it's probably a good decision but does Boostspeed make this suggestion when people have limited amounts of RAM in their system? I will probably test these changes but not have enough time to report the difference.

Boostspeed reminds me of a modern day version of Norton's Utilities. Some features are more useful than others, but for the types who simply want to "set it and forget it" there is a one button cleaning utility that takes care of everything. Another option is to schedule it to scan automatically (not recommended in case you happen to be doing something important or shutting down the computer while it's working).

Frankly, I find Boostspeed to be a well designed, and useful supplement to popular cleaners that you may already use. The default settings are set in a way that minimizes risk of loss of data and expert options are available. If you don't use any system cleaners at all, this may be a good choice. I don't work for or have Auslogics in any manner, but I would like to visit Australia one day. :)

A number of years ago this company had a similar and very useful program but the interface did not look like it was designed for a kindergarten.
In the past I have always looked forward to software designed by this company, today's offering is a severe disappointment, when making changes to my system I want easy to get at clear information, unlike today's offering.

For the first time ever I will not be recommending keeping one of this company's products.

I think 'BOOSTING' is a relative concept . It can be achieved either way. I never think of boosting my system at just 'One Click' rather always try to maintain the stability in another way. Instead of using the whole suite or a program having stamp of 'booster' I always go for the specific program which I think can make an impact. I have used Auslogics Disk Defrag Free as per a recommendetion but I have found Puran Defrag as more useful and reliable than the former. Puran Defrag has VSS Compatibility which doesn't affect the restore point during defrag operation and It also offers BOOT time Defragmentation options , So I don't have to use a program like PageDefrag seperately.


Both Puran Utilities and Toolwiz Care can be just an alternative suite with ample number of utility tools but you have to try and find out the specific and specialized programs for Registry Fixing or Defragmentation , Disk Cleaning , Privacy Cleaning, Startup Control , Uninstalling an apps etc which can help you to get the best performance out of your computer.

Thanks

The pagefile/virtual memory is one of the biggest causes of disc fragmentation if the system has to use it the reason being it is normally set to being dynamic in its size.
If it is modified to be a set size and defragmented using PageDefrag or similar as mentioned above there will be a large reduction in disk fragmentation.

@XP-Man

You have correctly pointed 'one of the biggest causes of disc fragmentation' . PageDefrag can defrag the 'pagefile' while in use but the other defragmentation tool can only do it by 'BOOT TIME Defrag Technology' . This option is readily available in Puran Defrag and Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro but not available in Auslogics Disk Defrag Free Version.

I have for years eschewed the dynamic pagefile as a major source of fragmentation on the C drive. I disable it, restart, defrag, and create a static file, setting the min/max values at windows recommended size. Even better is to create the pagefile on a different internal HD from the OS, I create a small Z partition on a secondary drive for it; now the same head doesn't have to read the OS and the pagefile.

XP-Man's suggestion about page file size is correct, but may slip past (not be noticed by) many readers.
Set the Min and Max size to the same identical size

Rather than defragging the page file, would this be more effective ? -
Turn off page file, and reboot Windows.
Then turn on Page file

Dadams & Karl (comments #3 & 4) gave wise and useful assessments.

Here's my summary:
Defragmentation is no longer necessary or useful on modern systems.
Automated registry cleaning can only bring about marginal improvements, easily outweighed by the associated risks.
Similarly, stopping (unnecessary) system operations will not bring about noticeable improvement but can leave your system lame.
Memory improvers don't work.
Cleaning junk won't speed up your computer or create lasting extra space, as junk will soon accumulate again.
Only deleting system update uninstallers and uninstalling unnecessary programs will create space.
Finally, speed can only be gained by stopping apps that unnecessarily start with the system and by replacing big, slow programs with slim, fast alternatives.

Conclusion: If you must use such a program, today's offer is a good choice by a reputable company. But you don't really need it, just perform the last two items in my above list.

I also agree with XP-Man . To keep the HDD in a healthier state it is an universal recommendetion to defrag HDD at least once in 3-4 weeks .

@tomcat I am reading this first time "Defragmentation is no longer necessary or useful on modern systems."
but I am not sure whether you're pointing towards the modern systems with SSD or not.

I'd point out that mechanical hard disk seek times are still so slow you can hear the heads moving. You can only get a bit over 200 seeks a second out of a drive (it depends what percentage are "move to next track" which happens more quickly), hence a defrag is a good thing, especially on boot when lots of stuff is loading. This isn't an issue for solid-state drives.

Reply   |   Comment by JohnL  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+23)

The reason for not defragging a SSD drive is nothing to do with speed, it's to do with the fact that, with the current state of the technology, you get a pathetically low number of rewrites per sector before that sector becomes unusable, compared to a standard hard drive. Even a SSD drive performs better if defragged, but at the cost of seriously shortening the life of your drive.
People often forget that the other (and possibly more important)reason for defragging is that, in the event of a hard drive disaster, it's far easier to recover lost data if everything is nice and unfragmented.......

Re defragmentation:
http://techlogon.com/2011/10/16/is-disk-defragmenting-still-needed/

“If you have a modern computer, defragmentation should not be a major issue. Yes, there could be benefits to be gained from the occasional defrag but whether they are truly noticeable or just a psychological placebo is difficult to assess. What is certain is that there are far more effective ways to speed up a slow computer” (This article was written in 2011 and things got better since then.)

I’d add that what little defragmentation might be beneficial is done to excess automatically in Windows 7 and upwards. In my view, far more than what is needed. Bear also in mind that the process of defragmenting works the disc hard and reduces its life. It is also possible in a non-perfect disc/file system that system damage may result.

Bottom line: Defragmentation is no longer an issue in modern systems and may do more harm than good. If you must do it, do it very rarely, nothing like the once a month recommended in the past, which was also excessive for most users. And turn off the automatic process.

As does the system attempting to gather all the fragmented parts of a file, possibly repeated many times, on the other hand defragmentation is required only once on the file.

@ XP-Man above:
What you're saying only applies for a badly fragmented disc, which was a thing of the past.
What I'm saying applies for slightly fragmented discs and where defragmentation is carried out to excess or unnecessarily, which is the case nowadays.

I thought that was clear and didn't need my above clarification.

Actually It Is GOTD who PAY for Offered $oftwares, This mean that them who decide which version to offer; This is mentioned in their About page.
I Am wondering, When this is the case Why GOTD is only offering tweaking and General usage Apps?!
Can they Pay For Useful professional software?
For example: Web creation or Graphic and Multimedia authoring.

Installed and registered without problems on a WIn 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system.

The installer installs a version 6.5.6, the link to the corresponding homepage goes to version 7.0.

We had a version BoostSpeed 6.5.6 July 23, 2014. This seems to be the same. Here are the old reviews:
http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/boostspeed-6/

My old review is still valid. In a short test I made two screen shots today - just to add new information to my last test.

A quick check of my newly installed windows (one month ago) shows a terrible performance, all marked red. Needs immediate "repair". At least it has not a "health index" of 0,0. LOL

Immediatley after this test with severe issues, I am glad to push the button repair all - I always push a "fix all" button. Therefor the "fix all" button exists. Or not???

After fixing, I am happy. I have save 3 seconds. What a pity that they do not tell me, where they have save a second or the other...

Wow! 78 barbecues more. I repeat from my last test:

"and it tells me in the same window : more barbecue with my friends per year and more hour of intense gaming per year !!! it should be funny, but it isn’t. DEAR AUSLOGICS; PLEASE CANCEL SUCH NONSENSE, IT SPOILS YOUR SOFTWARE!"

From their info:
http://www.auslogics.com/en/downloads/boost-speed/6/PC-Optimization-Effect-Research.pdf

You may believe it, if you want. Or not.

Uninstalled via reboot - I don't feel treated as a serious customer with such funny software.

Have a look:

This is the built in cleaner from Microsoft Windows via the properties tab:
It is in German language, but you need to see the figures only.

Compare this with the "disk space" from the software of today...

Another all in one solution for your PC woes. I don't think there are any magic wands you can wave over your computer that will heal it and make it "run like new". That is a pipe dream. The only way to a faster compute is by hardware upgrades. software wise, you can limit your starup programs and programs that run in the back ground. That will help but not anything miraculous. Let's examine the claims of this program:

1) "Pinpoint the issues behind reduced performance". That's a bit vague and I'm not convinced it can deliver on that claim.
2) "Defrag your HDD, clean out junk and repair registry". There are plenty of programs both free and paid to perform these functions. In the old days degrag of the hard drive was critical. In today's computers of faster hard drives, faster buses, smarter OS's, I don't think that is an issue anymore. As for the registry... All I can say is proceed at your own risk.
3) "Speed up you PC and clean up your web browsers" Again a bit vague and most browsers will allow you to do the clean up yourself either manually or with extension and add on's.
4) "Help protect your privacy and recover deleted files" Again, this can be done with many other programs.
5) "Give you 15+ easy-to-use PC maintenance tools" Needs some more details. What tools?

Most experts will advise against a one button fix. Despite the five star ratings I would use this with caution. Here are some screen shots..

I will stick with the programs I know and trust but I greatly appreciate the offer. Thank you GOTD team and Auslogics Software Pty Ltd.

Sadly I see many older people being convinced that changing their hardware is the only option when their system slows down, most of the time it is their operating system that is the culprit.

Much better to get someone to reinstall their operating system before wasting their money.
Even a one click system, much as I dislike them, is better than buying some powerful machine just to write a few e-mails and browse the web.

To XP-Man: I am perhaps one of the "older people" you are worried about. (Incidentally, I am also an XP man.) I worry more about younger people, even among the educated, being fooled. My years have taught me that if it seems to good to be true, it probably isn't true; that newer isn't necessarily better, and that the only computer you can depend on is the one under your hat. I have many GOTD programs and a lot of really old programs of just a few KB, yes kilobytes, that do useful service. As far as today's giveaway, I rejected it at first glance. But I do love reading the comments: the best forum since alt.freeware.

Paul, yes some great old programs, remember when I was programming it was often necessary to extract large amounts of data from an old system into our own.
This had to be done via report text files in the old system and was a horror to attempt in Windows.

Paul, the last line from my comment above seems to have disappeared, it is “but using Prn2File, a 2 K program, still available today, it was done in seconds.”

This is an old version. 7.6 is sold now. I doubt that 6.5 can even be bought with $49.95. I have version 6.5 installed on Win7 SP1 and it works well.

pro: Auslogics BoostSpeed is the only program I have ever used that actually does boost the speed of your computer...easy and intuitive interfaces, automatic memory and disk management, easy and quick registry and internet optimizations...well worth the usual cost of the program.

con: why are they only giving away version 6.5? the current version (which I have) is 7.x...if you're gonna give away the program for a day, why not give away the newest version?

if you don't have it, download this and use it, and I promise, it will improve your computer's performance...just don't update the program unless you have the money to spend on the new version.

Before downloading this application I wanna know that is this tool even deal with system registry related issues???

Reply   |   Comment by Micaal Poe  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-21)

I mean it really fixes registry error's or not. Because it's quite tricky to deal with system registry, if any thing went wrong registry crashes...

Reply   |   Comment by Micaal Poe  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Micael Poe...yes it does ... and if you have system restore active on windows, it backs up the registry. thirdly, if something goes wrong during the repair or defragment operations, it backs out and makes no changes, causing no damage to your windows installation

Hi I'd like to share how my system remains clean and responsive just by following 2 rules.

want a clean & responsive computer? Then start like this:

#1. shutdown (non-important) startup programs and (background services) you don't use by using services.msc

example: if you don't use windows media sharing center then why would anyone leave it's dependent services running in the background lurking around? You wouldn't right? so go disable it now!

this is only one example but there are many other useless services just like this running in the background of your computers. A one click "I'll do it for you program" will not fix the major causes of a slow system. infact they will hardly scratch the surface of the issue and at best give only a temporary clean and minor adjustment in speed after which you will soon fallback to the crawling snail you once were. But they may also help you eliminate some privacy issues
and minor bottlenecks, but never the root of the problem.

they are much like pharmaceutical drug companies. they'll develop a drug to treat the symptoms of the underlining medical condition, instead of getting to the root of the matter through a whole body healing approach.

#2 coming soon...

I have used Auslogic apps for years .. a company that offers quality software. Years ago their full program was techy enough to be intimidating. There must have been criticism as they then went "Kindergarten" as other here has well stated. There are many quality packages that are offered free or for half the price. $49.95 is far to much. Advanced System Care offers a lot more for well less then 1/2 the price. I do find that running other's apps from time to time will find things the other has missed. So in short, good application (prior newer offering. $50 bucks? Outrageous!
