Okay so, Game Booster is a program that pretty much clears up some ram, ends processes (including some windows processes), and closes applications that you choose. I liked it, until mysteriously it changed from Game Booster to Razer Cortex.

Razer Cortex: It's pretty much an over-glorified brand-name version of the latter, but now I have not much of an option other than to put up with it.

 

Razer Cortex added this feature that 'detects' games by searching for executables of certain games. This feature is pointless to me as I only use the application one time a day when I use my computer. Even if I de-sync Steam to it, it will still attempt to detect games anyway wasting a lot of time on my usual startup.

 

So with that story aside, I'm looking for an alternative to this program. Something that serves the same function but with less fluff.

Even better a way to disable things from starting in the first place.

 

Thanks in advance.

This seems like some alright advice, however I don't trust CCleaner since it's known to mess up steam games.

I'll try it out tomorrow morning.

You can disable startups with MSconfig, also whats in startup.

 

For alternative Temp file cleaners.

 

Privazer

TFC.exe

System Ninja    Note: System Ninja Installer is bundled with pups. Careful when/if  you install, it is a solid program though.

Privacy Root Wipe.

Gonna try System Ninja now, and i'll dig into it's install files for pups, but Unchecky didn't catch anything when installing. I had tried the MSconfig but a number of other programs still launch on startup so it only gets me so far, so i'll give whats in startup for right now.

 

And to answer your question, it has in fact help a great deal. Thank you so much for your patience.
