  1. I just saw this software advertised on a web page the other day and was wondering if it was any good.

    I have yet to see one that actually provides any meaningful benefit.

    Does the expression 'Snake Oil' ring any bells? There seems to be an awful lot of stuff aroung which does nothing other than nuisance value.

    Snake oil? LOL! Yup, I've been the victim of a lot of snake oil salesmen over the years!! So, do you have an XP tweaking guide recommendation?

    These programs by and large are BS.

    The best way to speed up your PC is to READ the "How to speed up windows/PC" guide in the GUIDES forum.

    .
    i used a similar s/w for my windows 98 long back and i must say it works.
    it acted like a caching program by prefetching data and stuff.
