Thread: Tell me About Game Booster?

    Default Tell me About Game Booster?

    I've been hearing about Game Booster?
    http://www.iobit.com/gamebooster.html

    I'm looking for something that will automatically
    turn off all processes running in the background.
    And I want to be able to turn them back on.

    I've always been afraid to shut down the background
    processes, because I don't know what is needed and
    what's not.

    As usual, I need something idiot proof.

    Does Game Booster work?

    Can whatever it does be easily undone without messing
    up my computer/FSX?

    Is there something better?

    Thank You!

    I can make a very small improvement on slower computers. Higher end computers usually see no improvement whatsoever. Its free and its easy to use so just try it and see what it does for you. You may find this review helpful:

    Really funny actually, I was just doing a test with game booster. My PC runs FSX very well and I saw an improvement by about 3 frames. It's free, fast and easy to use so you can't go wrong even If you only get about 3 frames. Give it a try.

    I have been using it for several months now - simple to use and I have had no issues with it.

    Give it a shot - don't think you will be dissapointed.

    Thanks guys, I appreciate it!

    It only shut down 7 processes on my computer,
    so I probably won't see much improvement.

    Default Game Booster works great for me....

    I have passed this freebie on to several friends, some not even gamers, and they have thanked me for other features they have found useful, such as the registry defrag.

    It had no effect on REX, UTX or GEX.

    It works fine, but I didn't see any improvement.
    It only shut down 7 background resources.

    But, my computer is just the basic store bought
    retail Windows XP and FSX stuff, nothing else.
