We review SpeedUpMyPC 2011 Version 126.96.36.199 in its functions.
Proactive thumbnail generator
We have set in Windows to not generate cache thumbnails (thumb.db) in image folders. This file has hidden attribute and gets often unwanted distributed in downloads with images from the internet. When you open a folder which contains a few hundret or even thousend images and set folder view in explorer to show thumbnails, it can take some time until you see all of them. When SpeedUpMyPC run and this feature is enabled, thumbnail view is instant available. In our test without Proactive thumbnail generator to show thumbnails it took more than 24 seconds in a folder with some thousands of png's. With Proactive thumbnail generator they are instant visible.
Software launch booster and start menu software accelerator
Acceleration of the file navigation is working very well. Windows explorer performs smoother than without SpeedUpMyPC. You can see this best when you navigate into folders with a huge quantities of a few hundred files for example.
However the functions to start programs faster shows little effect on our test system.
The Tweaks settings are very effective. After deactivating unneeded system services the PC is noticeably faster as well as the other registry tweaks increase web browsing speed and system performance. If you have Webfolders as a drive connected, you may need WebClient service, but you can manual exclude it under the Tweaks settings as well as all other tweaks individually.
Junk Files cleaner
Does what is says and remove temp files from the harddisk to gain more free space back.
SpeedUpMyPC's sump.exe use between 45 and 61 mb system ram on peak. spmonitor.exe about 12 mb while running in background with and without Speed Tools enabled. That's CPU manager, Software launch booster, Proactive thumbnail generator and Start menu accelerator. Consider SpeedUpMyPC adds no system services to your system, so the memory consume is fair enough.
The User interface is clear constructed. All options are clearly laid out. SpeedUpMyPC can be switched into 19 Languages and is written in Python. It require only 18,8 MB space this is excellent and not bloated.
SpeedUpMyPC from Uniblue is a very effective program, it optimize and speed up your system in no time and comes in an easy-to-use and very neat user interface.
