Avira System SpeedUp can optimize your computer’s performance in many ways. For instance, it can fix registry problems, defragment hard disks, and erase junk files. But that’s not all, this application includes a lot of other tools that address specific system issues, which makes it one of the most versatile available. Fortunately, it has a nice and straightforward interface with lots of visual support so it is easy to use even for inexperienced users. However, since messing with such delicate system areas as the registry always involves some risks, it’s advisable that you know what you’re doing before actually making any changes.

The application is mainly intended to improve your system status in three main areas: disk, performance, and privacy. It’s nice that you can run a complete scan with just a click. However, it’s disappointing to see that the free version doesn’t really let you fix all the errors found. Another area which affects speed is startup application and in this regard, this program can analyze the time your system takes to boot and provide a list of startup applications with recommendations to change their status if it’s needed. This way, a given application may be set to start during or after boot, disabled, or removed permanently. Unfortunately again, Hyperboost level is only available from the pro version. In terms of saving energy or boosting your computer, the free version allows switching between various Windows modes. However, such modes as the energy saver and power boost are unavailable unless you pay for the complete version.

If you buy this product, you can also use a comprehensive set of tools. Lots of multiple features are included here. As to managing data, you can find duplicate or empty files, decrypt, or encrypt information, and copy locked or hidden files and folders to a new location. Besides, you can also use it to defragment disks, analyze their contents by file type, delete data beyond recovery as well as find and fix disk problems. Likewise, this application can help you defragment the registry, manage context menu entries, provide information about installed drivers, and manage services and processes. Other tools are intended to fix connectivity issues and administrate network use by other installed applications. There is also the possibility of creating backup copies of specific files and folders. Moreover, it’s good that it allows backing up and restoring the registry and the master boot records. Finally, the application comes with two other essential tools, a program uninstaller and a file rescuer.

To sum up, there would be much more to say about Avira System SpeedUp, just if I could really test some of its tools. In fact, I couldn’t tell you the real impact of this application on my computer’s stability and speed. For the moment, I would have faith that such a trustworthy software developer as Avira won’t let us down this time.

Guest Will I be able to retrieve my files back if I failed to create a restore point? I just downloaded Avira System Speedup and it cleaned my files. However, I forgot to create a restore point and it erased many important personal and work related files.
