    "Revo Uninstaller is a great tool to have, if you want your computer to be in tip top shape. The free version would probably fulfill most peoples everyday needs, but I decided to purchase the Pro version, because of the features offered. I love that you can easily backup your files so quickly and that it monitors in real time any changes made to your system. I think this is a great investment if you care about the health and reliability of your computer."

    "This program/system allows you to have a beautifully run computer without having to be a computer professional. I applied this to my work computer and loved it so much, I installed it on my home computer as well. Just as good as having an IT guy at home!"

    "I had a problem with too many programs installing themselves to boot at startup on my Windows PC, and I installed Starter. It helped me figure out which ones were most important for me to run everytime, because some of the programs I don't even use everyday, definitely not enough to warrant being run all the time. Now my startup is running much smoother."

    "There are a lot of different reasons why your computer might be running slow. I was having this problem and decided to try out ZSoft Unninstaller to get help with figuring out what was wrong. After removing a lot of unwanted files and processes my computer runs great now."

    "Techddictive's guide for disabling startup programs is moderately helpful for making startup processes faster, but it would have helped if he used a better recording software. The video itself had a low enough frame rate that it was a bit uncomfortable to watch. Even so, it provided a nice step-by-step guide for reducing the number of programs that automatically open on startup."

    "Thank you for the solution! My computer has been running really slow for the past few weeks and I didn't know why. I did this and it's actually like two times faster."

    "I used the tips provided by WiredImpact.com, on how to make my computer run faster. It was taking forever for my computer to load and I was getting random crashes and freezes. The tips that were provided to me through the website greatly reduced both of my problems. I think they provide a great service if you are having issues with your computer crashing or random slow downs."

    "My computer was getting really slow and I was running out of space but this Youtube video was great in helping me learn how to clean up temporary files that my computer makes. It's crazy how many files you can build up over time."

    "I tried the methods listed in the article and the only thing that helped was to stop a couple programs from launching on startup. This article is really just for freeing up disc space and NOT making your pc run faster. I wouldn't suggest wasting your time if a faster pc is what you're after."

    "My computer was lagging and freezing way more than when I originally got it. I started searching online and I found this article to be very helpful. I am a laymen when it comes to computers and this was 4 easy things that definitely helped my computer run more smoothly. I wouldn't have thought to do these things and looking further it seems that these are the easiest and simplest solutions and really fixed the reason my computer was getting slower."

    "CCleaner is a program I use at least once a week. It's a "must have" staple part of my PC maintenance arsenal. One of those pieces of software that has emerged as indispensable. It is somewhat irritating to have to save certain information every time I use it (before it executes) but it's a small price to pay to have a smooth running PC. What else can I say? I wouldn't know what to do without it!"

    "Lately, my computer has been running slower than usual. So I was interested in finding a solution to try to make my computer run faster. I tried this open source software called Bleachbit, which was supposed to clean my system and free up disk space. Unfortunately, I am not seeing any improvements in performance speed for my PC."

    "Ugh! If you're like me, you've occasionally had cause to wonder why that computer that ran so great when you first got it seems like a completely different computer than the one you're using now. "Windows rot" is real - all computers slow down over time, and there are solutions. But unfortunately, this is NOT one of them. This software was literally worse than useless - it actually made my startup time LONGER than it was before, because it ran at startup. Sure, it deleted a few things and cleaned a few things, but nothing that the excellent Piriform CCleaner didn't do better and faster. Pass!"
