The benefits differ for each computer. This is because each computer is setup differently both in hardware and software installations. But due to the many available tweaks that can be applied to most computers, some improvements will be gained whether in data seeking, memory management, CD accessing speed and/or other visual enhancements.

 
Q: I am worried that PC Booster will stuff up my Windows settings.

PC Booster has a safe fall-back feature. It does a backup of your current system configurations before allowing you to change anything. So if you are not happy with the tune up results or tweaks that you have altered yourself, you can always select the restore function and everything will be back to normal.

 

This is due to the fast shut down option under the 'shut down' section in the manual tweaks.
The cause is due to some computer hardware compatibility that is not able to handle the fast shutdown and will treat it as if it is restarting. To remedy, click on the manual tweak icon, go to the shutdown section. Uncheck the item fast shutdown.

NOTE: This is not a bug with PC Booster but is part of a feature for Windows. Windows disable fast shutdown on default installations but we allow it for selection to get reduced shutdown time.

 
Q: I have changed some values for MTU, memory cache size, stack size, etc, but it always shows zero

Some settings don't show up after being entered such as cd speed, MTU, TTL settings, etc. this is design by default but rest assured that when you press optimize the changes are applied to the registry.

 
Q: I think I have downloaded PC Booster, but I can't find it. Where is it?

  3. The search wizard will return the result of the search.
  4. Double click on the search results and you will then be able to locate the folder and begin installation of PC Booster.

Q: The text is being cut off from the screen / The font is too big. What should I do?

The oversized text is because you have set some of the Windows font size to a bigger size, currently PC Booster is not able to enlarge so the text will cover some of the buttons or get chopped off. 

One solution is to reduce the Windows Font size which should make the text fit into the window properly.

The exact way to solve this step would be:

  1. Click on Start.
  2. Select Settings.

  4. Double click on Display.
  5. Click on the Settings tab.
  6. Click on the Advanced button.
  7. A new pop up dialog will be displayed. You should see the option for General.
  8. Under Display you can select Font Size. Select "Small Fonts" (96 DPI). Click "OK". You can now read all the text in PC Booster.
