So I have probs one of the worst rigs atm... until I upgrade the possessor, RAM and GFX >=]

So over the years I have picked up some rather snazzy software for making your computer run better and smoother. And as such, can run DoW better too ;]

So heres a rather helpful list for your enjoyment.
All programs are free ;]

Auslogics Defrag:
If not THE best defrag I've ever used. Does my entire HDD under 3 minutes. And that's 90Gb of crap aha. Rather nice GUI which Vista's defrag lacks and progress meter that Vista also lacks. Basically for noobs about there, it puts files closer together to minimise time for the comp to find files hence making things load faster. Much needed for all systems and this is free and just made of awesome.

AML Registry Cleaner:
Rather spiffy tool for keeping the registry clean. Messy registries lead to slower systems and loss of stability if things get bad enough. AML has mucho more features than other programs which make it rather tasty. But is a touch **** on the actual registry fixing skills. Basically it is in the shadow of a much better program. Sure its got a lot of features in one tidy program but I'd rather have my registry cleaner actually clean out the registry as well as it can =]

Moot point. But if you have a HP printer AML will remove some registry values for your printer and an annoying pop up will turn up every time you boot up. Only way round that is to move all HP registry values to the exclude list...

Auslogics Registry Defrag:
Honestly, I found this program today. Within 10 minute I declared it the best thing ever. All it does is defrag your registry which just gives you a rather nice boost to speed. Thing is, its not prone to clogging up as is the HDD or the actual registry hive, so once its done your not gonna get another speed boost next week by doing it again. The software advises to do this once a month. I tryed to defrag again and it just told me I was wasting my time =']

Memory Improve Master:
Best thing ever 08. Compresses RAM which is good if you lack 4Gb of the stuff like everyone else seems to have... Other useful options it has is UDMA66 enabler and other little fixes. Also has a built in task manager that has ALL options on it rather than the small choice you get with Windows own brand. Although it doesn't tell you what your terminating which can get a touch risky. WARNING: If you don't have a UDMA66 HDD and you turn it on. You might damage your HDD as it trys to run at a speed it can't cope with. If your stupid enough to do this, then don't blame me. Its your fault ;]

CCleaner:
Cleans HDD of crap. Its ace. If you need MOAR space tick the "Wipe Free Space" box and it will overwrite all freespace and the clear it. Good if you have deleted dodgy things [*winks* We know what you did...] and also when I did it. I got 6Gb of free space back. How awesome is that? Features a registry cleaner too ;]

Auslogics Registry Cleaner:
Yeah, if you haven't guessed it now... Auslogics make EVERYTHING. Also they're products are imo the best on the market [Bonus, most of them are free too]. I ran a registry scan with this. Where AML found 150 errors. Auslogics found 1400. This readout isn't fake either where most free products are, as with all Auslogic products. You can view what has been fixed in a HMTL document. =]

Speedfan:
Lets you see your CPU and GPU temperatures. That's useful. Although I never understood this program that well, you can set the fan to run faster and at certain temperatures. Again useful. Also has a loverly overclock feature.

DISCLAIMER: If you do something stupid with these programs, then its YOUR FAULT. Don't run a registry cleaner without MAKING A BACK UP FIRST. If things go tits up, then you can just revert your **** back to where it was before you messed it all up. Use recommended settings if you don't know what your doing. But otherwise enjoy your faster rigs for free. ;D

yea auslogics and CCleaner is essentially a must for any pc

setting fan and seeing cpu temperature and such is only really needed if you OC your pc a lot, and power saving. i have such programs by default from my motherboard XD

No idea. But click it and **** about with the settings enough and you can free up RAM with one click.

You see a drop in task manager RAM usage display too.

Also use free memory to function too. Its a single click feature.

Always remember to have Protect CPU Useage active.

20% is the target. It protects you braking core hardware. Do not **** with.

what it says on the tin. it squeezes all the data together to free up ram

kind of think about it as pressing oxygen and hydrogen together in a container to get water. its no longer floating everywhere but all compressed to get unused space :0

And keep it on topic or Satan damn you. if not ill damn you instead :twisted:

IOBit also offer some nifty tools that do the same things listed here. SmartDefrag and GameBooster are both free. Advanced System Care has tons of functions but has to be registered for deep registry cleaning and a couple of other things. ASC also includes SmartRAM which frees up and compresses memory when CPU usage is low. Also, it's pretty difficult to mess your system up with ASC. The few potentially dangerous tools have warning prompts anyway. ^^

Run Malwarebytes proper scan. If it says IOBit is malware than am right. I probs am not though.

Idk, I'm REALLY picky when it comes to software. I use MSN 7.5 purely coz its the only build of MSN I like...

If Malwarebytes says its clean. It's clean. I'll have another look at it soon.

On that note though. DAP IS malware. Don't get that. It fucks with your System32.

Doesn't that cost money though? I had a serious spyware and virus problem, so I know which systems work best. A good way to spot a scanner which is actually spyware is if you've never downloaded it before and it keeps putting up pop-ups.

Try AVG, its free and effective.

Meh w/e I rarely use it myself (I use Symatec, Norton's work AV system, because my dad works with computers extensively so he put it on this comp, its amazing), but its free if you don't feel like paying for it.

I use AVG, but it requires some serious tweaking, I get a lot of false positives. That seems to be the biggest problem with AVG now. It used to be much better. I'm in the market for a new AV solution but I can't find anything that offers all the same features AVG does (without paying through the nose). =\

@Snax: Try Avira. More features and better bug detection than AVG. Also has a bigger database of known viruses than AVG have too.

Only downside is that you have ONE pop up advert when it downloads its updates. That's it. =|

I can tolerate it, but only because it does a great job of keeping my comp virus free.
If it didn't, it would end up the same way as AVG...

Living in my recycle bin.

You're supposed to empty that y'know, lol :P

I looked at Avira, and while I've heard good things I'd have to go premium for e-mail scanning. AVG offers this in their free version.

I've never had a virus from email on Hotmail. No need for AVG.

email AV? Dude you don't even need that, the majority of virus links are usually go to spam and there usually the "Make your dick 3 inches longer!' ones, even then its bluntly obvious with suspicious names for links like "bamo-kila9.com"

I send and receive tons of attachments, sometimes from people I haven't worked with before. I'm not familiar with all their security setups so I prefer to be safe than sorry ;)

avast! Antivirus is a nifty program with all the same **** as Avira and AVG, and then some more on top of it. It uses barely any of your comp's resources, which is nice too. Oh, and it's easy as **** to use.

If your in the market for a free antivirus that doesn't skip on performance, I'd suggest that you take a gander at avast! Snax. I've used it before and some of my friends still use it.

Better than Norton, anyways.

Cheers for the suggestion Raynor, though I'm sorted now I'll keep it in mind for the future in case my luck runs out. ^^

It's great when you're just casually talking about AV with a friend and suddenly "Oh I have a spare seat for NOD32" comes up. Been using it for 2 days and barely even noticed it, it's been running scans and updating itself without slowing everything else down like AVG. Awesomes :mrgreen:

Tryed avast!

Didn't like it as it used more RAM than Avira.
And was slower scanning as well as other ****.

Its good. But not for me. =]

Hm? I've found avast! to be rather light on taxing resources, though I'll agree with you on the slow scanning part.

Meh the slower the better IMO as its scanning files more thoroughly most likely.

Avira has the choice to go that slow on a full scan. But that was a quick scan from avast!, I'd hate to see a full scan... =/

I've almost always used full scan anyway, complete with scanning archive files, whatever that does...

I'll just let it scan when I'm busy with something else.

I'd imagine archive files refers to Zips and RARs etc.

Update for those that actually took my advice and got Auslogic defrag should upgrade to v3.0.

Its faster, more useful options including a optimize function that works really well and a new UI. Its pretty sick.

Its free, and its really good, miles better than Vista's **** defrag [probs better than Win7 too] so why not get it?

I use IObit defragger.

I use COMODO for all my firewall, anti spy/malware and virus-related needs. Not that I have it switched on a lot, but equally I don't appear to ever get any viruses.

For those with immense memory pools.

Information:
RAMDisk is a program that takes a portion of your system memory and uses it as a disk drive. What is the benefit? In a word: SPEED! An additional feature of a RAMDisk is that it will never wear out. You can access it at maximum bandwidth 24/7/365 without fear of mechanical failure, or fragmentation (a RAMDisk can become fragmented just like any other disk, but it does not take a performance hit like a physical disk does when it becomes fragmented). A RAMDisk operating at maximum bandwidth does not produce excessive heat, noise or vibrations.

Now, what I'm thinking about is of what use can it be for FoK...
Omfg, Art takes > 3 GB :( How does DoW load all the art assets? I.e. which ones? If you copy them to a ramdisk, you'll get close to nil loading times.
Still, if you play some old games (Diablo, Starcraft, everything below approx. 1/2 of your RAM), you can copy the whole game folder to a ramdisk then mount the ramdisk (via Computer Management) to a former game's folder (rename the original folder as a backup and create a new empty folder with the former name). And enjoy the speed. Btw, it's natively supported under Linux.

I downloaded all of those accept speed fan and memeroy master and was wondering how many of those are redundent? Or do they all do different things. I know at least 3 of them do things involving your registrey so is one better then the other or something im confused?

ATM I'm using CCleaner, TuneUp Utilities 2010 and jvPowerTools. They do fine.
Nearly every such suite has common functions like deleting files and cleaning registry, so yes, they are redundant.

I've tested many and stopped on those, they are the best for me. Note that these are paid applications with lots of options for power users. CCleaner is free, though, simple and gets things done, so use it. You may also want to try Defraggler, that's free defragmentation tool.
