Auslogics BoostSpeed 5 Review

Pros: Its features are highly effective and supplemented with useful instructions and explanations.
Cons: It lacks customer support options offering only an online contact form.
The Verdict: Auslogics BoostSpeed is a good PC system utilities application in spite of insufficient service options.



Auslogics BoostSpeed constitutes excellent PC system utilities software, with a wide array of both basic and advanced features. Unlike many competitors, this utility software widens its appeal among beginners by supplementing its complex functions with simple explanations and step-by-step instructions. While the application delivers effective functionality for boosting PC performance, its lack of customer service options leaves much to be desired.

The PC system utilities software includes a range of basic but beneficial features to manage your PC's system resources. Auslogics' Disk Explorer can identify the programs on your computer that are currently using the most memory. With the information it provides, you can delete nonessential programs when you begin to run out of disk space.

The software also provides startup and uninstall managers. The startup manager helps you identify the applications that launch every time you turn on the computer; not all of them are essential and reducing them can significantly reduce your computer's startup time. The uninstall manager is precisely what you'd think: a wizard that helps you uninstall unnecessary programs that are taking up valuable space on your hard drive.

When it comes to repair and recovery, Auslogics BoostSpeed provides the tools needed to rid your computer of junk data, registry errors and duplicate files. In fact, the software targets 22 different types of nonessential files that can hog memory and bog your system down. There's also a register cleaner that specifically scans registry keys to locate invalid or erroneous entries. Lastly, a file recovery feature allows you to restore deleted files from your hard drive or removable media files that have not been permanently erased.

Auslogics BoostSpeed shines when it comes to optimization features. A disk defrag scans your entire drive for fragmented files and an internet optimizer automatically adjusts your browser settings to ensure the fastest connection and highest level of security possible. The PC system utilities software also features what it calls a Tweak Manager. Just as the name suggests, you can tweak several different computer settings to optimize performance.

Unfortunately, Auslogics BoostSpeed is not supplemented with many support options. You'll find some FAQs online but they aren't very in-depth and don't cover any technical issues. Moreover, the only way to contact the company directly is through on online contact form.

Despite its lack of support options, Auslogics BoostSpeed provides the necessary tools for optimizing and protecting your PC. Beginners and advanced users alike will find the software accessible and easy to use.
