An optimization utility that slows down your PC? No thanks


I've been having problems with my computer lately--random slowdowns and other weird things--and while I've got several programs to maintain it, I've had a hard time keeping track of what does what, what works the best, and how to keep on top of computer maintenance. The Fix-it Utilities suite makes that a lot easier, at least--it includes pretty much everything you'd need to keep your computer running well, and it packs many of them together into one-click optimization options to make things easier. The interface is pretty easy to use, and most of the programs do pretty well at running in the background. It seems to include just about every optimization utility you'd need, including slightly less common ones like a startup manager, and it's fairly easy to use. My biggest problem with it, though, I discovered after restarting (and, therefore, after writing most of this): it adds several processes to protect your computer in real-time, which is great in theory, except that for a program promising to speed up your computer...all these processes really hog my resources, way more than any of my other anti-spyware/antivirus software (and I've got 2 GB of RAM, which isn't stunning, but it's decent for a Windows XP). It actually ends up slowing my computer to a crawl, instead of speeding it up or optimizing it. After I discovered that, I forced all the processes to close and haven't run the program since, and in fact I'm about to uninstall it...something that isn't made as easy as it should be. So much for that, then.

My computer is running great now!


Fix-It Utilities 10 Professional helps keep up to three of your PC's running like new. It's very user friendly and even a first time PC user could figure it all out. Want to be able to keep your PC running efficiently without getting too involved in the searching and cleaning? This program can be set to do everything for you. When you start up your PC a small window pops up in the bottom right hand corner showing you what state your computer is in and if anything needs attention. This software also includes an anti-virus and anti-spyware program integrated into it. One of my favorite features of Fix It Utilities is its ability to recover lost data. Did you accidentally delete your favorite photo from your child's birthday? This program can help you recover anything that you've lost. I recommend this program for anyone who's looking for a simple, affordable way to keep their PC running like new.
