Computers when first purchased work fast as they had been booted up recently. Eventually, the PCs slow down and the cure to this is the PC tuneup utilities that are available in the market, both as free trial or downloadable full versions with somewhat limited benefits as compared to purchasing full versions.
A slow computer can be a result of numerous factors. Downloading multiple useless applications, having too many games or other heavy applications installed, not uninstalling programs properly are some of the reasons. There may also be a hard drive which is fragmented, and there may be junk files present in abundance. The Windows registry may also be unorganized.
A PC tuneup is basically an application that fixed all the wear and tear that occurs over time. It repairs the hard drive fragmentation and also fixes the windows registry. All the useless applications and files, some of which may be present in multiple copies are also deleted during PC Tuneup. There are some utilities that offer additional unique features as well.
Lolo System Mechanic 10 is a PC tuneup software that hosts numerous features like Program Accelerator that reorganizes all the files of the PC on its hard drive, which makes the PC work faster as no time is wasted locating and opening files. The files are organized to open up faster hence. This also has a desktop widget as well as a Whole Home Licensing. All these work together in making the PC work faster.
Slim Cleaner is another PC tuneup utility that comes free of all cost and sets up a faster PC by recommending the optimum settings at which the PC performs best. PC Tune-Up is software that carries out a scan to detect and get rid of any fragments of uninstalled programs, which when built up result in a slow PC. It also features the option of allowing the addition of registry optimizations that may help speed up hard disc access, by organizing files on this hard disc. Hence, when a file is needed, the PC quickly retrieves it from the hard disc without having to look through the entire hard disk, as a consequence of which the PC is slowed.
The program runs using four steps through a ‘Quick Start’. These steps include registry backup, followed by problem scanning, then there is the repair step and defrag at the end. Lastly, there is optimization to achieve best results from the PC. The reason for backup is to create a system restore point and then scans the registry sections for things like pointers to files which do not exist anymore. The problems discovered are then repaired, and a full version is needed if all problems are to be fixed. Limited trial version will not achieve this. Defrag then compacts registry. Optimization alters registry to achieve different ways of speed-up. This part of the PC Tuneup can be disabled as per choice as the program doesn’t specify what is being optimized. It also comes with a form that allows the client to ask any queries relating to optimization.
