Performance booster helps you to improve the performance of your computer by running the following processes:
- Disk Cleanup: Disk Cleanup finds and removes invalid and unwanted junk files from the hard disk drive. These files consume hard disk space and also slow down the system considerably.
Disk Cleanup deletes these files freeing up space and helps in improving system performance.
The Disk Cleanup feature also deletes temporary files, Internet cache files, improper shortcut files, garbage name files, and empty folders.
- Registry Cleanup: This feature removes invalid and obsolete registry entries from the system that appear due to improper un-install or non-existent fonts.
Sometimes during uninstallation, the registry entries are not deleted. This results in slower performance of the system.
This feature removes such invalid registry entries to boost the performance of system.
- Traces Cleanup: This feature removes traces from the Internet history and MRU (Most Recently Used) list of various applications.
It safely deletes history, cleans the cookies, cache, auto-complete forms and passwords.
Traces such as auto complete entries and saved passwords need to be deleted to ensure that user privacy is not breached. It also erases the traces from popular application programs such as Microsoft Office applications, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Media Player, WinZip, WinRAR and traces such as Browser Cookies, and Saved Passwords.
- Defragmenter: Files are often stored in different locations that slow down system performance.
This feature defragments vital files, such as page files and registry hives for improving the performance of the system. Defragmenter reduces the number of fragments and clubs all the fragments into one contiguous chunk to improve system performance.
