Very doubtful! IMO a fast CPU and and good quality ram is the only way to be competitive!

This one has a "Game Booster" in it's Utilities and is Free. Costs you nothing to try? I have used it on XP Home with no Problems.

Honest I would be very leery of anything to do with Iobit, they have lost much of the programing from their offering after it was found out they stole it. They say there products have lost as much as 60% of their usability!

there are all kinds of "boosters" out there, both freebies and ones you have to pay for. in my mind, they are a scam. most do nothing, and even the ones that do only give you a marginal speed boost, by ending non-essential processes in the background, and even there its a very minute performance gain, one you can gain for free by simply not running background stuff when your gaming (shut off your Instant messengers, web feeds) in fact if you go into the control panel and turn off the pretty interface and adjust it for "performance" and not "pretty" will make your computer run faster then any of the booster programs out there.

I completely agree with you there, Mate, but there are other things to also consider as well.

It is that time of Year where we all should try to give a little to those less fortunate than us. I try to do my little bit by repairing and getting Computers right for those that either can't afford to maintain their Machines, or for "Special Kids" that really need the interface with the World, via the Net and Games.

I try as hard as I can, but I can not always drop by on a weekly basis to tune up their Machines to keep them at optimin performance, mostly they are not what we would call "Extreme Machines", so I test little programs like the one I indicated to try to give them some sort of a Back Up. The Game Booster is just a Utility of the program and actually does what you suggested to do, but does not need anymore input except to click a button on, then off when finished. It also runs in the Background and quitely checks everything out, then gives the Option, with a click to correct what it finds. I am not aware of any allegations of Theft involved with it but can show that it was released just recently, from the Link I gave, BTW.

Current Version: v1.30 New!
What's new: Used a whole new database; Improved Improved scan engine and database; Removed IObit Toolbar; Fixed general bugs
File Size: 7.8 MB
Operating System: Designed for Windows 7, Vista, XP, and 2000 (32bit and 64bit)
Release Date: Nov 15, 2009
Designed to: Keep your PC 100% safe and secure from various Trojan and malware.
Languages: English and other languages

I have tested it and ! am very happy to install it on all Machines that I feel that the Owner would receive benefit from. Naturally, it would not be on "Extreme Machines", I rarely need to work on one of them, Mate.
