Simple Performance Boost 1.0.5

Tweak the performance of Windows with a minimum of fuss



There are countless ways in which Windows can be tweaked to help improve performance, and there are countless tools available to help you to do so. One of the best ways to improve the performance of Windows is by applying tweaks via the registry, but this is fraught with potential problems. Simple Performance Boost from tweaking experts enables you to make these registry edits without putting your system in any danger.

The first time you run the program a backup of the registry is automatically created so that you will have the option of restoring it should anything go wrong. You are then presented with a series of tabs which break down a number of tweaks into various categories. The first tab, General Tweaks, includes a number of everyday tweaks that affect the day to day running of Windows.

Applying tweaks is a simple matter of ticking the box next to a setting and moving to the next one. On the Networking & Services Tweaks tab, you will find that the tool makes it incredibly easy to disable unnecessary services as well as tweaking various network settings. The final tab, Visual Tweaks, is concerned with the aesthetics of Windows but this can also have a bearing on performance.

Individually, few of the dozens of tweaks included here will make a great difference to the running of your computer. That said, when put in place altogether, you should experience a noticeable improvement in performance. For anyone who is not keen on getting their hands dirty in the registry, this is a great tool that gives real results.
