computer repair

I would like to obtain (or see produced), a suite of programs to "kickstart" computers that have lost their speed over time. The suite should include a virus scan, shareware and popup scan, hardware test for hard drives, memory etc., removal of junk files and so forth.

Also, a registry tool to clean up, defrag etc would be very useful.

well...

if you want to start one for yourself, install either speed it up free 4.0 or fix it utilities.

i have both, speed it up free is pretty good, it has ram booster, harddrive defrag/optimization, registry defrag/optimization and you can cleen up temporary files that windows doesent let you hit.

fix it utilities is more full fetured but you have to buy it. althogh it doesent have rambooster, it has everything else that SIUF4.0 has as well as full pc diagnostics and virus/adware scanning.

both of these are kinda portable if you copy the files to a seperate disk, they worked on a network computer just by acsessing the .exe

fix it utilities is not open source and can only be used privately, as far as i can see, SIUF4.0 is not open source but there dont seem to be restrictions but still, only private!

please link to the site,

please link to the site, rather than creating a direct link to the exe. Linking directly to the exe is considered bad practice because the user then has to download the file and then go to the home site to research the product, rather than being able to research before downloading. Also, directly linking to an exe could be considered an attempt at infecting one's PC with malware, or spamming. Also, many sites explicitly state that a link to their site is fine, but not to directly link to their files.

I'm sure your intents are not malicious, but please, in the future, link to the website for the application, rather than the application itself.

bolth of them allow you to clean the registry of broken links, unnessacary info and duplicates, that kinda stuff. Fix it works best for that thogh.
