Totally useless. It isn't even an alpha.

My anti virus software identifies a Trojan Horse (PSW.Ldpinch.IJ) embedded in the exe file.

Given your system may never recover from the changes, the interface makes it unclear whether you actually applied the changes or not. Very dangerous for the novice who looks for the extra bit of performance!!!

Clear up the gui (radio buttons and a large apply button maybe), add tooltips to each setting and provide a "save state" option for safe recovery.

Warning!! Believe the disclaimer that the author writes in his README! Do NOT use this program if you do not have a method of restoring your computer from the point where it will not even startup in SAFE mode!! I say that because if you look at all of the stuff that this program does (have to go to the website and go through the forums etc. unfortunately) the above scenario is a possibility, in fact, it is probable. If you DO know what you are doing, then this program is probably not for you as you would be a power user that would want to have more control over their settings than this program gives.

Suggestion: Make every setting explicitly "click-able" and tool-tip understandable with links to why you turn something off in order to gain performance. Have warnings for particularly scary service shutdowns and reg changes. Basically document document document! Your target audience is apparently NOT the power user so don't expect 'regular' computer users to understand what gun they are pulling the trigger on. Good luck!

Well, if you're already a power user like me and you already manually disabled the services and tweaked stuff like the Windows SWAP file you dont need that... Giving it a neutral 3 because it's of no use to me but i understand some people might find this more user friendly than tweaking you system manually.

"This one messed my computer almost completely, and my games didn't have any better fps.
POS, 1 star." FPS won't go up if vsync is enable as it is by default in most games. I tried it on my spare comp and it works fine. Just make a backup with either the program or system restore. If you can't find system restore on your computer,don't use this program.

5 stars, becaus the program does what it says. It turns off less commonly used services and stuff like that. I don't recommend anyone who isn't familiar with managing services and such by hand to use this. The best use is to run this and then reenable the services you really are using.

It's an ok app in practice - It would be nice to be able to edit what it's doing as far as tweaks are concerned - and It does have a backup feature - Thats what the whole "state" mess it's talking about it.

The program has some good ideas, but they are very poorly done. After installing the program and running it, XP Pro for my would not load properly. Luckly, I was able to get into safe mode and fix the problems. Besides, most of the tweaks that the program does can be done manually, with little effort.

In theory this sounds like a very good app. In practice however this is a very bad app. It makes system changes but doesn't keep a backup that you can revert to. Until it implements some sort of backup restore I recommend you don't use it.

I would give a 0 if I could. This is WORTHLESS!! I downloaded it and used it, and it screwed everything up. And since it turned off system restore, I couldn't even go back to the original config. Don't bother downloading this crap!
