I use Auslogics Defrag and have  done for many years. With the last two updates, I have been clobbered by an IED called BoostSpeed. This program installs if you are not careful in reading the Wizard. I have twice hit the trip-wire.

 

To get rid of this pest, I use Revo-Uninstaller which scoops up over 50 left-over items in my registry. Why Auslogics trick innocent users into installing this registry saturating rubbish, I  will never understand.

 

Honestly, can  anybody support having BoostSpeed ? I see it as a potential trouble provoking nuisance, likely to interfere with the smooth operation of my computer.

No BC regulars in here support anything such that.  While I use only two of the many Auslogics products, BoostSpeed definitely is not one of those two.

Thanks Roland,

 

I have learnt over the years from many sources including the many valued comments of BC members to avoid PC clean-up programs like the plague. Oh yes, they clean it up OK, including files which are absolutely necessary for the performance of users own individually selected programs. Then we get a PC with half the parts missing and as much use as a bucket with a hole in it.

When I uninstalled Boostspeed with Revo-Uninstaller, it scooped up about 20+  Registry items left over from the normal installer and I found another dozen or so on file search. All gone now. Never do I wish to see that infernal program again.

EUREKA ! I`ve found it.

 

For all those enthusiasts who love Auslogics but hate their wretched Boostspeed, here is the way to get just the Defrag.

 

Go to - http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/disk-defrag/download/ and hit the "No thank you"  box. Then hit the Download box which comes up. Save to Desktop.

 

Go to Desktop - hit the download icon and RUN. Follow the Wizard, it uninstalls any previous version, THEN, watch for the Auslogics tripwire. IGNORE the RECOMMENDED install and select the CUSTOMISE. A panel  drops down  with selector boxes on it and ONE of them is the dreaded Boostspeed. UNCHECK IT ! Then go ahead with the installation.

 

All you now get is the Auslogics Defrag with not a trace of their infernal Boostspeed.
