Glarysoft Glary Utilities (Quick Review and Details)
Years ago, I heard a few people discussing Glarys Utilities but I always thought it was a small time product. I was wrong. This is an decent PC optimization suite that deserves serious consideration if you want to manually tinker with your computer. Although, if you want extreme speed increases, there are better optimizers out there. With a very organized layout, the program is easy to understand and produces decent results.

Steady performance is the mantra for WinOptimizer. This Windows' optimizer will stabilize your PC and prevent errors and problems from proliferating in the future. With it you'll perform deep tuneups to make your system speedy and more efficient. While it doesn't have the same power as others in our list, it still does the job of optimizing your Windows' install, safely and adequately.

Uniblue PowerSuite (Full Review and Details)
Delivers an almost automatic PC optimization in an extremely safe and fairly effective manner. While it lacks some of the more advanced features of our other top selections, it will be a great choice for anyone who doesn't want (or have the time) to adjust numerous settings. Under the colorful design is a software solution that should appeal to most PC users, new or experienced.

Auslogics BoostSpeed (Full Review and Details)
Optimization and ease-of-use go hand in hand with the BoostSpeed optimizer. Will also clean out junk files from your data drives and helps to alleviate many (but not all) problems within Windows. Has an excellent interface that is beautifully designed, but unfortunately, the overall performance of the software is a bit lacking compared to others we tested.
BoostSpeed review | Uninstall
Systweak Advanced System Optimizer (Full Review and Details)
The Advanced System Optimizer aims at being a single-click optimizer. Includes an easy to set scheduling option to prep your machine for continual optimization. For more advanced users or the more daring, there's a few tools and utilities. As always though, proceed with caution, as the manual settings can be a bit tricky. Did not perform well enough in the speed optimization category for us.

Pointstone System Cleaner (Full Review and Details)
More of a junk file cleaner than an optimizer. Unfortunately, many better and more advanced optimizers do this and a lot, lot more than what System Cleaner offers. Computer novices may find the program easy to navigate, but the reality will always be there, other advanced optimizers give extreme speed optimization at a similar price point. Also includes a basic registry cleaner that can safely reduce the size of your registry.
