Today Giveaway of the Day

PCBoost allows you to run programs such as games, video production, photo editing software and any software that requires excessive processing power to run much faster than the software was originally designed for. With little to no effort you can instantly force programs & games to run faster on your computer without having to purchase new hardware. Most programs are designed to use a minimal amount of CPU (processor) power which often leads to the CPU being idle and not used to its fullest potential, with PCBoost your computer is able to take advantage of this by allocating more CPU power to the currently active application.

PCBoost constantly monitors which application is running as the foreground and active program; it then tells the CPU to give this application priority over all other applications. This direct instruction to the CPU forces the application to get more attention and quickly finish any tasks that are required as soon as possible. If you switch to another program or game PCBoost instantly notices this change and instructs the CPU to set the old application to a normal priority and the newly active and foreground application to a higher priority. This approach allows the current and active program to always use the most CPU power as possible.

Dear GOTD users,
there seems to be some problem on the developers side and we've already reported the problem.

We hope the problem will be fixed soon or the offer will be repeated.

We are really sorry for the inconvenience!

Helen, here's a suggestion REMOVE the giveaway download until it is fixed or cancel the giveaway and replace it with another real giveaway or leave an apology anouncment and we'll wait until tomorrow for the next giveaway. The algorithim the description lays out is not a of any real use with properly written windows programs anyway... Do not reward PGWARE LLC for their fradulent contribution to your marketing platform! And certainly do not pay them the share of advert revinue they would have been entitiled to for contributing a real giveaway of a licensed commercial product.
I also suggest you instruct your moderator to let this comment go public unedited to let visitors vote if they agree or not!

TK, it appears that the issue with the link to the landing page has been fixed, I registered successfully with no trialware.

Victor, I concour... it does not need your real name any text will do as the serial and name provided in response is the same for everyone. I still feel this contributor should at least formally apologise for trying to cheat us and giveawayoftheday.com with the trialpay scam! I am not installing this program as it's algorithim will not improve anything on normal systems and only if there is a badly behaved program would this type of multi-tasking priority hacking have any benefit but not the way they do it...

Victor, They use IP-number lookup.
After giving a new name, I got back another name and serial; the name I used the previous time.
They are logging IP-numbers and names.
But there is a number/code

There are many good programs on GOTD that are a dream to install and checkout, others are nightmares to install as some nerd thinks it's smart to make it hard to find the reg. info. get a life!

I think judging by the comments already posted, most of us are not even interested in this, so fixing a problem with the developers is not required, so far as I am concerned.

Process Lasso does much better, and allows one to see what is using what, in both the Processor and RAM. I'll stick with it.

Downloaded this fine piece of software, it told me there was an update, now it wants to charge me for a registered copy. So beware, I have no deleted it from my system, as I deleted once but the update was still there.

Seriously?! I have to go trough some suspicious link(s) and buy sth to get a f***g code? No, thanks. Would rather buy Process Lasso, which is much way better.

Process Lasso is the best for regulation of system processes. I bought a lifetime license.

Larry Watkins, yeah, i bought one too, it was a steel back then and it never failed me to this day. The big pro is that you can even see what the program itself is doing, instead of todays offer that does everything in a hidden manner, if it does anything at all. I usually refer to such programs as Snakeoil, just by how they operate (sneaky and misteriously).

Windows is built to work with multi-core CPU usage; it knows how to handle which processing core to send processes to. I'm not convinced PGWARE — the developer of PCBoost — is smarter than Microsoft; I'd much rather leave it to Windows to decide which core to send my foreground process to rather than let PCBoost force Windows CPU scheduler to use the least used core every two minutes.

Reply   |   Comment by Mike  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+64)

Mike,

Can't say whether PCBoost 5 works as advertised, or how well, but while Windows may in many cases use all available CPU cores, that has nothing to do with the software & games you run. This is especially true with many [most?] games, and why Intel CPUs have been more popular with more serious gamers than AMD, even when the AMD CPU may have many more cores available. If/when, as often happens, a game only utilizes one or two cores, the total core count is irrelevant.

The preferred solution is of course for software developers to write their code to utilize however many CPU cores are available, but very often they do not. It'd be better if they wrote 64 bit apps & games instead of 32 bit for that matter. But they don't.

Mike, I just typed out a lovely comment explaining why Microsoft Windows multi-tasking is flawed and while inputting the recapatcha I made a typo so instictivly tapped the backspace key and the browser went back to the sites home page and lost my comment *grrrrr* WIndows uses hybrid cooperative/pre-emptive time sliced multi-tasking and if a windows process is badly written or deliberatly written to try and steal other processes CPU time-slice windows falls back to priority based pre-emptive multitasking and then only higher priority processes can gain CPU time. Since by default all user processes have normal priority an errant anti-social program can eat up all the CPU cores it is programmed to use unless one manually lowers the anti-social processes priority and or CPU core affinity to reduce the share it has influence over using Task manager or automatically via a tool such as Process Lasso. Increasing a properly written co-operative multi-tasking compatible programs priority will not make consume more CPU resources in a normally functioning windows environment but it will protect it from a rogue process that tries to steal CPU resources but the propper way to handle that is reduce the bad processes priority and CPU core access.

krypteller, ooooo that's farrrrr to sensible... yes that is a very valid suggestion and if the moderator here was more consistent in interpreting the commenting terms and conditions and open with their commnet editing it would be worth my while adding that extra stage...
For now there is no public acountability of the anonymous moderator(s).

When this page naviagtion sabotage happens I am reminded to periodically do CTRL-A followed by CTRL-C to save a copy in my Clipdiary database... what I need to do is get into the habbit of doing that periodically as I type or more specifically CTRL+A, CTRL+C followed by right cursor key to deselect the comment and put cursor at the end of the text ready to continue.
