PC Optimizer Pro Review

Hey everyone! Back for another review. :)

I recently came across this program called PC Optimizer Pro. Well actually, I had come across this software in the past. But I decided tonight to go ahead and review it. So consider this my PC Optimizer Pro Review :)

System optimization programs are VERY popular these days. There are so many different software programs claiming to speed up your computer. Figuring out which ones actually work and which aren't can be tricky to the average computer user. The average computer user doesn't want to spend hours and hours researching various programs. They just want to know the basics. Does the software work or not? That's the main question I'm setting out to answer with this review.

I went ahead and downloaded and installed PC Optimizer Pro. The download is quick and easy as was the installation. Even if you are on dial-up it shouldn't be a big problem. With that, let's get to the actual review.

Upon spending some time with PC Optimizer Pro, I am pretty impressed with this software program. As some of you know, I have reviewed many different system optimization programs. Unfortunately, many of them turned out to be junk. But I don't consider PC Optimizer Pro one of them.

PC Optimizer Pro comes with a registry cleaner which I really like. It can be very important to keep your registry clean. If not, your registry can fill up with errors and unneeded entries that slow down your computer. Cleaning your registry is one of the most important steps in optimizing your PC, and I am glad that PC Optimizer Pro includes a Registry Cleaner.

PC Optimizer Pro also came with a file shredder and tracks eraser. The tracks eraser is used for cleaning your internet history which ends up giving you more privacy and freeing up junk from your hard drive. You know... sometimes when people are out of hard drive space, the first thing they do is start deleting their programs. I tell them though, first delete your internet history! You would be surprised how much space you can save from cleaning your internet tracks. This is definitely another crucial step in optimizing your PC.

The file shredder overwrites files you delete multiple times. This makes it so that it is much harder to recover the files after they have been deleted. For instance, if you have any sensitive documents with your banking information, you definitely would want to use the file shredder so that some nosy person can't recover your file and steal your information later on.

Also, another thing I really liked about PC Optimizer Pro is that it comes with a program uninstaller. This helps you to uninstall unneeded programs on your computer. You may be wondering why you need something like this since Windows comes with Add/Remove programs. Unfortunately though, Windows Add/Remove Programs can be very buggy and not always completely remove the software. Using this uninstall program feature with PC Optimizer Pro is definitely a better alternative then the Windows Add/Remove program.

In all, that about wraps up my review. I really liked PC Optimizer Pro and I think it does a great job at cleaning and optimizing your PC. If you are looking for a system optimization program, definitely give PC Optimizer Pro a look.

Good luck!

Wise Drivers Review

Hey everyone!

It's been awhile since I've posted anything. Things have been busy the last few weeks with moving out of state. But the move is complete and I am starting to settle in.

Anyway... tonight I was browsing the net and looking for some new software to try. I came across Wise Drivers and decided to try it. I had heard some good things about this piece of software from some friends, so I figured I would go ahead and try it out for myself and post a Wise Drivers review.

For those of you who are wondering what Wise Drivers is, Wise Drivers is a program that scans your computer and figures out the latest drivers that you might need to update. Wise Drivers then downloads the updated drivers and installs them. It sounds like a very useful idea. But does it work well? Time to find out...

I went ahead and downloaded and installed Wise Drivers. It was a quick download and installation. The download was just a little over 2 megabytes. So even those of you who may still be on Dial-Up shouldn't have a problem downloading Wise Drivers. Anyway let's get to the actual software.

Upon loading Wise Drivers, I noticed the interface is very simple which is to be expected from this type of software. On the left are the buttons "Scan", "Download", "Settings", and "About". These are all pretty self-explanatory, so I don't really need to go into them.

There isn't a lot to really talk about with Wise Drivers. It's not an advanced 3D game or package of system utilities. It's main purpose is to update your drivers. Simple as that. So let's get right to the scan...

Once the scan started, I noticed Wise Drivers was scanning for many different types of drivers. System board, system speakers, motherboard resources, etc. I was happy to see that Wise Drivers was doing a fairly in-depth scan and not just a quick simple scan.

Upon the scan finishing, I was taken to a list of drivers I needed to update and was able to pick which drivers to update. How does Wise Drivers update them? Well, it turns out Wise Drivers has an online database of more than 100,000 drivers and is constantly updated. Because of this, Wise Drivers is able to easily find the drivers you need to update them on your PC.

In all... I really like Wise Drivers. I don't have much else to say about this software. It's very simple but effective. It's purpose is to update your drivers, and it does an excellent job at that. Good stuff!

But yeah, I'm going to go ahead and recommend this to all of my readers. If you need to update your drivers, definitely give Wise Drivers a look.

Good luck!
