PC Speed Maximizer Review
We downloaded the tool on to our test computer which was a 1.2mb file. After saving to the hard drive we ran the simple installer program which installed Maximizer. (We have Windows Vista installed but the program can also operate on Windows 8, 7, XP, ME, 200 and 98SE).
The overall installation seemed sluggish and awkward which was strange considering it is only a small file.
Easy to Use?:
Avanquest have obviously put a lot of thought in the overall design of the interface. When you first start this registry cleaner you are greeted with the system overview screen. (see below)
Here you are presented with different options (Quick Scan, Registry, Clean Up, Optimize, Options) which you can choose to speed up and optimize your computer. An instant scan is also available. Although the interface is clear the colors seem a bit drab and the icons not very clear.
Features and Performance:
We found that by running some of the some powerful sub tools we were able to improve system performance by over 6%. Maximizer not only has the standard registry cleaner scan but also a Windows optimize panel where you can tune up internet, system and security settings that can slow down computer performance.
You can also carry out important tasks with one mouse click, such as deleting invalid short cuts, removing junk files, deleting unused privacy files and a powerful start up manager that you can easily remove system resource hungry programs that clutter up the Windows start up sequence which makes your computer run slowly.
We then ran the registry cleaner which scanned deep into the Windows system database and located over 60 files that needed fixing. We knew there were errors (DLL error messages) on our test computer and was able to fix some errors.
Although we had no installation or user problems with Maximizer we wanted to test out their customer support – so we sent out a email. We were impressed to get a reply within just 2 hours with some useful tips, guides and hints on how to get the best use out of this very good registry cleaning software. There is even FREE telephone support for all registered customers.
We simply could not place PC Speed Maximizer higher than third position.
Although the software has telephone support we felt it lacked power and the ability to fix some of the most basic errors which is the whole point of a good registry cleaner..
For all Vista, XP, 7, ME, 2000 and Windows 8 computers, laptops and netbooks – Download and Scan your PC with Maximizer.
