    Default Do programs like "FSX Booster Live" and "FSX Fiber Accelerator" actually work?

    I have been getting medium-to-slow FPS in FSX, therefore rendering it not-so-smooth. I have been considering getting one of the programs listed in the title, but I wanted to know, do those apps actually work to increase FPS in FSX?

    No.

    They can cause serious pc crashes too. If you want to switch off background tasks do it manually. And be very careful about what you are doing.

    Actually, you should stop trying to push your pc like this. The hardware is what it is. It's not likely to help one thing. Much more likely that that when you keep messing with your install you mess things up.

    Just go flying.
    And post more exact specifications then 'Celeron of some sort'. So we can advise.

    Are you speaking from personal experience here? I'm not sure about FSX Booster Live, but FSX Fiber Accelerator certainly helped a little on my old system. Not as much as a hardware upgrade, but certainly about a 10-15% increase in performance in problem areas. If you have an old, slow system then it may help. That said, as far as I know it's now been discontinued so you may struggle to find it.

    They have it on simshack.net. Link: https://www.simshack.net/products/fs...ce-booster-810 You can view my specs in my signature. New, good computer, but not the best processor and graphics card.

    I started with FSX. Never done FS2004, or P3D, or X11, FSX is my first and only (as of now) flight sim. Thanks for asking though!

    I was never into the flight sims before, I was just an enthusiast, but then I tried FSX:SE in 2016, and I was instantly hooked. I love flight simming now! Before I was just into planespotting, YouTube vids, and going on lots of flights. I was never a pilot, and not planning on being one.
