i viewed this program in another Post. The poster was " Phawgg" and I looked at reviews and looked at the product description as well and it does seem indeed to be a program worth looking into.

I was wondering if one has to enable all features as I already have a Registry Cleaner, Perfect Disk 7 Defrag Program and PopUp stopper programs that I am very satisfied with and so I would not wish to use those features and I wondered if there is a way to disable them???

I look forward to comments.

As if I were to purchase it I would likely buy the disk.

Thankyou,

It is fully customizable, georgia.
I do not use several of the "sub-programs" myself.

In fact I was considering using the "ghost image the drive" program soon.
It was recently updated to v2.5, but I haven't used it yet.

I have used the defrag REGISTRY feature...at last count it was "straightening out"
397,000 entries. lol

I've used Iola since 2003.
Very happy so far. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the reply incredible "Phawgg", what are the recommended utilities that you use in the program??

I know you have so much experience with computers and programs.

It's divided into six major categories (boldface).
In each are several programs.
I'm using less than half.

CLEAN

Get rid of system junk.
Clean up your tracks
Uninstall software.

FIX
Fix registry problems
Fix broken shortcuts

MAINTENANCE
PC maintenance Wizard

OPTIMIZE
Increase Internet speed
Tweak Windows settings
Manage startups
Defrag Memory

PROTECT
none of the available

1/2/3 OPTIONS
the ghost disk soon to be tried.

Again, there are twice as many or more.
I just know my way around some things,
and haven't bothered yet with others.

The toolbar I'm staying away from.
You always pay for convenience in my opinion. :thumbsup:

Edit: and somewhere in there is a defrag registry I used.
