[Review] Auslogics BoostSpeed 8 - System Optimizer Tool [Updated]

If you are wondering why your PC is getting slower regarding performance and you probably don't know why then this tool might really help you a lot.

To be honest, there are a lot of free applications out there, but there are limitations with free apps. With Auslogics BoostSpeed 8, it will give you a convenient (just one-click away to fix, clean, and speed up system) utility that you might be interested in investing for slight bucks.

Well, certainly reminds me about CCleaner, but this is far more improved version. 

Why does System is getting slower?
As you go along using your system, it will start to slow and degrade performance. It is because of the fragmented files, invalid registry keys, junk, temporary or clutter files, old drivers, cache, unused software, and among some things.

Due to its limitation of features, BoostSpeed 8 improves it with its version with a lot of features. The GUI is quite simple yet straightforward.

defragment - Auslogics Boost Speed 8

Every time you have installed or used programs, it will have more fragments. Fragments are sometimes called file system aging which theoretically can affect users with low-end system specs (yes, it will not notice in high-end specs, but advisable to use Defrag once in a while).
In computing, file system fragmentation, sometimes called file system aging, is the inability of a file system to lay out related data sequentially (contiguously), an inherent phenomenon in storage-backed file systems that allow in-place modification of their contents. It is a special case of data fragmentation. File system fragmentation increases disk head movement or seeks, which are known to hinder throughput. ~ Wikipedia

I started using BoostSpeed one week ago Before BoosSpeed I was using advanced system care for two months, and I suffered horrible slowing downs and issues and fake alerts, I even had to install Windows several times without realizing it was all Advanced System care doing.
When I first installed BoosSpeed, I was skeptical at first, but later on, my whole computer experience changed, why? Because before BoostSpeed, Advanced System Care made my PC slow down and I did not know that it was the software fault, so I am really glad I found this software with mere coincidence and I am so glad I decided to give it a try if I had not installed this. I would probably have bought a new PC. SO THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS GOD-LIKE SOFTWARE!!

I am grateful that you cleaned up my duplicate files for free. Almost all of the other websites that say that they are free are free until you start downloading, and then you have to register, and that is when they hit you with the bill. I want to thank you for giving me a free scan and helping me to free up space on my recovery (:D) disk. I will go with you as soon as my current contract runs out(wish I had found you first) because I appreciate the fact that you gave me a gift for free and for that you will have a customer. Unfortunately, it will be in about five months. Until then I know that people appreciate your dedication and hard work. Thank you, Elizabeth Friel Alberici My only computer is a little 1 GB, 1 GHz notebook, who's only 'saving grace' is a graphics accelerator to play games. I was always getting errors, 'blue screens of death', freezing, dropping the browser page. I was ready to use it as a clay pigeon! The free version of BoostSpeed 8 has almost made me forget that I need to get a real computer. So impressed w/ the free version, thatI will buy the full version ASAP. It finds things that my CCleaner misses. My new, favorite PC tool suite. This is the first one I've run across that gives you more than your money's worth!
