Auslogics has generously offered our readers a chance to win one of five licenses for their BoostSpeed 10 software. Each of these licenses is currently valued at $59.95 (US), but you might win a free copy just by entering this contest.

“BoostSpeed runs a complete checkup of your entire system locating junk files, speed-reducing issues and causes of any system or application glitches or crashes. Through a lot of research and testing, we have worked out precise techniques that allow locating issues, which can be safely removed with no risk of damaging your operating system.” ~ Auslogics

This giveaway contest begins today and will end at midnight on September 27, 2018.

This program is compatible with Windows 10, 8.x, 7, and XP. There is also a trial version available at the above link. It is limited in that you can only use each tweaking module one time, but that should be plenty to convince you how versatile and useful this program can be.

Usage

The first time you run BoostSpeed 10, you will be presented with this screen:


boost-speed-opening-screen

To proceed, simply click the Scan All button. Here are my results:

boost-speed-first-scan-results

This software is divided into four main sections with each containing many different tweaking options:

  1. The Main panel on the left is further divided into Basic and Advanced functions
  2. After finishing a scan, there are four areas where you can fine-tune the changes you want BoostSpeed to make
  3. There are 18 modules in this specialized tweaking group. Each module has many options to choose from
  4. By clicking the Select Scan Options link, you choose specific areas that you want BoostSpeed to focus on, such as System, Privacy, and general Scan Settings

I spent every bit of an hour changing things here and there and didn’t begin to test out all the possible settings. If you like tweaking your computer, this is how you can spend a lot of time and enjoy a little slice of heaven. The Auslogics Tweak Manager alone has ~54 settings for you to play with.

In this short review of the program, there is no way that I can address all the included functions. All I can say is that there are many hundreds of them, all of which offer tips explaining what they do.

Backups

A very much needed ability provided in powerful programs such as this has been addressed by Auslogics, and that is to be able to make backups, you know, just in case…


Scheduling And Real-Time

If you choose, you can have BoostSpeed run when Windows starts. You can set a schedule for BoostSpeed to run at specified intervals. You can choose from several Real-Time processes running in the background all the time:

  • Memory Optimization
  • Processor Optimization
  • SSD Optimization
  • Disk Priority Manager
  • Desktop Protection

Each of the above offers suggestions based on your current computer system configuration.

Conclusions 👍

My advice when using these multi-faceted tweaking programs is to take baby steps. It can be easy to go too far, muck something up, then not be able to remember all the changes you  made. Bummer.

Auslogics got all the bases covered with this one. It is easy to use, the interface is intuitive, and there are good descriptions and advice in tool tips for every change and tweak that you can make. This is particularly refreshing because many times you don’t know what you’re reading actually means, especially if it is of a hi-tech nature. For example, how many of you know what “Windows OEM attributes” are, or “Time quantums”?

I can heartily recommend this program to anyone who wants to “clean up”, speed up, and tweak their computer. Just, “be careful out there…”

  1. Very nice program. I used the older one: Boost Speed 9. It was very helpful for my computer. Auslogics gives also another free software program for the maintenance : Windows slimmer. Very nice!

  2. Tried lots of speedup progs that don’t work and used advice to also speedup, but none do as much as this program does. Would like to finally have something that is up to the task 105%
    Thanks for the opportunity to win one. {:-)

  3. This is a nice Optimization Suite: it’s similar to Advanced Systemcare Professional by IObit. It is a bit pricey so I waited for a discount before I got my first 3-PC license for BoostSpeed. But I sure wouldn’t mind having another license; optimization software like this comes in handy.
