Designed to keep your PC free from unnecessary and junk files, clean up and defrag your Wndows registry, and manage the apps that tend to add themselves to your startup routines, Ultimate PC Optimizer comes in an attractive and colorful interface that is both easy to use and well-structured. The program scans your drives and your registry looking for redundant files and broken entries that do nothing but clog up your computer.
The scan process itself is fast and produces a comprehensive report that lists all the issues found in the most sensitive areas – namely, system-related issues, Com and ActiveX issues, user-related issues, and junk files. Each of these issues can be inspected more closely if so desired, and if you know how to interpret these data you can decide which issues need to be addressed and which don’t. Each of these scan areas can be easily customized using the settings provided. Here you can uncheck those items within each area you don’t want the program to scan and report to you about. Thus, if you wish to keep your history and start menu items, your Internet temporary files, or the system help files, all you need to do is uncheck the corresponding boxes in the Settings dialog.
To optimize your registry, Ultimate PC Optimizer offers you a utility that will defragment and/or back up your Windows registry to keep it free of obsolete and useless entries left behind by apps that left your computer long ago. Keeping a clean and compact registry is crucial to maintain your PC running smoothly.
Finally, this tool comes also with a startup manager that will list all the apps that are launched automatically at startup, allowing you to disable those that seem to be slowing down your computer’s startup time for no reason.
Without being a pricey tool, I expected to find a longer list of extra tools along with the startup manager, as you usually find in many other similarly-priced optimization tools. An uninstaller, some tool to protect you from potential threats, or a large files finder might add value to a somehow limited tool. At the same time, the strict limitations included in the trial version prevent potential users from assessing the real potential of this optimization tool. If you wish to find out if Ultimate PC Optimizer does defragment and optimize your registry and if it really improves your system’s speed and performance, you’ll need to buy the corresponding license.
