I have had zero troubles with my Windows 7 computer until I tried this program! Now I have had the blue screen of death come up 3 times since installing this program. I removed it after seeing less performance from my computer, but the blue screen of death still appears. This is the only change I have made to this computer in 6 months.

"it then makes several permanent changes to Windows "

Who in their right mind would install something that does this purely on trust ?

Installed and worked as stated on win,8.1, also has a restore setting. Very easy to use.

SystemSwift probably can't hurt anything -- it makes the sort of tweaks to Windows settings that you can find recommended online, e.g. reducing Windows animation FX. There are 2 options, normal & max boost, it requires a Windows restart after applying either, and there's a Restore button to put things back, which also requires a restart. Restoring Windows settings mostly put things back -- it did however make some few registry changes that were unrelated to the optimizations, so a backup, or at least a restore point would be suggested.

Using a VirtualBox win7 Ult 32 bit VM with InstallWatch Pro to record all changes, I installed SystemSwift, activated it, ran a regular optimization, performed a restore, and ran a max boost optimization. The system changes that I recorded were made in or to the registry, were all benign, but, I can't say anything about SystemSwift on another system with different hardware &/or version of Windows.

SystemSwift is a small app that when installed adds files to the program's PGWARE folder, start menu & optional desktop shortcuts, plus a single file: C:\Windows\ System32\ wbem\ Performance\ WmiApRpl_new.h . Two keys are added to the registry, one for the app & one for uninstall. Activation is straightforward -- visit the URL in the GOTD readme.txt file, enter 2 names [1st & last], click the button & it shows you the number -- copy/paste that in the dialog you get when you click the banner at the bottom of the running app's window. Activation is stored for all users -- you may need to be logged into Windows with an admin account.

As far as improving the performance of a Windows device goes, FWIW... There are lots of devices sold nowadays, particularly laptops & 2-in-ones, that have pretty low performance CPUs and hard drives. Apps like Process Lasso & SystemSwift **may** help them a little. Hardware upgrades are very often not practical, if even possible.

There are also plenty of PCs & laptops that have been running Windows 7 for years, and many of those devices don't perform as well as when they were new. In some cases that's because of an accumulation of dust, &/or worn fans that limit their cooling, and as the CPU gets hot, it throttles itself down to prevent burning up. And in most cases there's some performance loss from software that's been added, along with updates to that software & Windows. The people writing programming code are human, and just like your neighbors & coworkers, same as doctors and auto mechanics etc., some are good, maybe even great, while others can be unqualified, inept, lazy, and even malicious. Adding software and updates impacts Windows performance, sometimes quite a lot. Microsoft used to advise reinstalling a fresh copy Windows as maintenance. Short of that, some people have reported good luck using various system cleaning software, while others have reported disasters. An in-place upgrade to Windows 10 **may** help, not so much because it's Windows 10, but because the in-place upgrade process now works pretty well, letting you keep all your software, while hopefully getting rid of a lot of old, accumulated garbage with a fresh copy of Windows.

mike, Agreed. I wonder why none of these Mr. FixIt packages don't build in the ability to apply changes to the user's system in virtual mode so the system can be used and tested before permanent damage is done. An undo function is better than nothing, but an awful lot can happen during an 'undo'. Even restoring backups can fail, as do Windows 'restore points' (which I find only really work about 1/2 the time). Perhaps the ideal solution would be for Microsoft to build a 'virtual mode' right into Windows itself?

PaulB, because programming a virtual mode shim requires real programming knowledge but throwing together a few registry tweaks harvested using google or other search engine and applying them indiscriminatly with no real experience of what works and what makes a system unstable is easy and any high school student can do that in computer studies class... Microsoft have included a Virtual mode into certain classes of windows 10 but is not exactly what you mean. There are third party programs that do do it BUT they all have one thing in common that would not help with these automated registry hackers... most of these registry hacks require a system reboot for them to take effect... and most virtualisation system protection packages tend to discard changes made in the current session as soon as you reboot... making it not possible to test most of the so called performance hacks.

I find it very suspect that there is a 78% thumbs-up rating above which is very out of line with the comments here.

TK, Having a problem to say anything useful here? What a waste.

Reply   |   Comment by kathee  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+13)

kathee, since this vendor does not publish a version history on their website but only includes the history within the installer I felt it helpful to publish the dev history especially considering how it mentions normally unwanted software additions like relevant knowledge so GAOTD visitors can see before they try to install it and find out the unwanted extras in the installer... It is no wonder this software is blocked by smartscreen and has so many entries on virustotal. I have posted other things in other comments whether they have made it past the moderator or not I've not specificaly checked. For most sensible users development history is useful... if people really don't find it useful all I can say is *shrug* not my problem it is very relevent to todays giveaway and anyone who cares what they put on their machines... the rest scroll on by or nag the developer to put up a product dev history page on their site so in future we can just link to it instead of having to put it in a comment.

BTW did you have anything useful to say about todays giveaway? :-)

TK, in case anyone else has noticed that the version we are getting is an older version than the one offered on their website here is the extra dev history for what's new in the current version compared to this giveaway version whose history file was included in the previous comment.

kathee, Actually he pointed to a long list of useful. Did you not see the update frequency, which you won't get. Did you not see that the version here is not the version that works "better" on 1809 and 1903?

krypteller, That is a good thing but at same time, no updates, and as TK, and yourself showed, that could be an issue seeing how many times in a year they updated before. After reading through all the updates, realizing how many per year, that GOTD does not allow updates most times, I declined.
Hopefully others realized the newest version accepts the key.

krypteller, Thanks but I purposly only included the history supplied with the specific setup.exe supplied with this giveaway bundle, I later tested their websites download and included the top few version changes in that comment which had not made it past moderation until after your comment. I note that the installer available from their website has even more hits on virustotal than the giveaway setup.exe and that the oderator has been actively censoring anyone mentioning the virustotal multiple reports due to their bundled badware relevent knowledge as noted in the history documents. Seems they have been having plenty of problems getting current windows 10 to allow their program to install cleanly likely due to it not being digitally signed and it trying to download additional installer for the PUP.

Mothman, err your jibe does not make any sense to me so sorry I'm not insulted I do not understand your attempt at a personal attack :-) I guess this is one of those times that ignorance or naivety is bliss!

it is far more likely you just got used to the speed of your new computer so were no longer impressed... then at some point you started installing software that had additonal services that ran all the time checking for updates or other activites the developers deemed essential and every process that is running will take up cpu time even if it immediatly hands back the cpu time slice because it's idling... then you regularly install security hotfixes and monthlty rollups designed to resolve some security flaw NOT maintain or improve performance... then you'll likely install some very invasive anti-malware and intrusion preventions package instead of ms built in products... then service packs with all versions of windows prior to windows 10 and from windows 10 regular feature updates which often add resource hungry features and you still have not increased system RAM or upgraded the CPU to the best your motherboard can cope with and so on ... now how is this software going to turn back time to the point when your PC was new and your expectations were that of the prevously owned older generation machine that you upgraded from.... or rolling back the operating system to maybe its original release to manufacture build with no 3rd party software sucking memory and CPU and storage IO resources.... it's not going to happen! And no I am not willing to put this snake oil on my already well optimised machines just to see what it really does as it has zero chance of improving performance without disabling critical functions on my systems.

If the developer is not telling you exactly what is doing to speed up the computer, probably is not going to help you decide to install it or not.

If you are tempted into running this software, make sure you do a full backup first, you need to have a back door if anything goes wrong. If SystemSwift sounds too good to be true, than this is it. No thanks, I'll pass the temptation.

Does anyone have a useful comment, like, i tried it and it worked well, or I tried it and it didn’t do anything.

Tom, Given the perceived risks involved in using software like this from an unfamiliar developer, the rest of us are hoping someone will try it and let us know how it goes first. Will you do that for us?

Quote { then makes several permanent changes to Windows so your computer feels like it is brand new once again.} UnQuote
This is probably NOT false advertising.
What is it like when your computer is brand new?
There is nothing inside it, yet.
No software has been installed and nothing can be done with the PC.
No programs can be run and there may not even be an OS installed.
This if your PC some how fails to boot after running this software, the software developer is not at fault. They were honest about it.

What's really needed is a video converter that makes your computer feel like new.

joe, video converter and "feel new" is irrelevant, but if you really need video converter go check Handbrake, VidCoder or FFMPEG all is free.

The only way to speed up a computer is to add some ram and increase its core speed ie i5 to i7 etc. By installing this software, will it increase my ram or otherwise.

Keep Startup simple and always clean HW will keep your PC speed, i used CCleaner and satisfied with the performance so i`ll pass today giveaway

Ant_G, Even if you could keep your PC running at the same speed as when it was new you will soon become acustomed to that speed and it will no longer feel fast, assuming it ever did. Same happens when we buy a newer higher performance car... big thrills at first until ones brain becomes used to the acceleration and handling and it no longer thrills and can even feel slower than it once was even if it still matches factory acceleration and handling.

Why do developers of this type of software make their descriptions sound so scary? I would never let software I am trying out do this "scans your computer for common problems and fixes them". I would hope they mean "tell you suggested fixes and fix them if you request it" Also the words "Fully reversible" wouldn't go amiss.

D Murphy, I also don't like, read mistrust:
"it makes several permanent changes to Windows"

Furthermore, extravagant claims like:
"instantly...your computer feels like it is brand new once again"
are invariably misleading.

Last but not least, it doesn't mention any risks associated with such drastic interventions, because of which I prefer to rely on what the tools on board Windows can achieve, which may be moderate, but safe.
