Innovative System Optimizer
Make your PC reach new speed records. Speed it up like it never ran before by optimizing all key components of Windows.

Once I read System Optimiser in any abvertising, I know the orogram must be Garbage -

Typical snake oil programs like this take your money and do nothing of use to help your computer.
You are better off installing Secunia PSI or similar programs that actually monitor legit installs.

I myself have been using DriverMax for the last 4 months and like it a lot. I have tried others and none do as good of a job.
May I ask why you want to change?

İ used Driver Max for several years and until yesterday

was certainly pretty satisfied with it.

The odd driver download that was faulty didn't worry me at all.

But what i experienced yesterday really shocked me.

You may have heard of the AVG Secure Search

(Security toolbar)
that is rather difficult to remove,if you wish to uninstall it.

(The web is full of people complaining about it.Apparently AVG is

NOT notifiyıng people of it's inclusion of it either.)

Well Driver Max saw it fit to include it as well in it's 'New Version'download,

WİTHOUT any notification whatsoever.

NO no choice of any toolbars,that you could decline was offered.

when i clicked 'next'' during the install

and i may only be one of a few who were chosen, .....

so i don't know if others have had the same experience as i did.

Have you downloaded the 'new Driver Max version as yet?

Hope you don't experience the same.

Driver Max is NOT a system optimizer,

and is a free program.

And i do have Secunia,have had it for years.

Thank you.

P.S Just noticed your 'Special Title'

very fitting i must say haha..

Yeah I got caught with that AVG install also and i have been searching for a way to uninstall it. Regardless I still think DriverMax is the best driver update program out there right now. As soon as i can uninstall AVG I will post the instructions for you.

OK what I just did was go into Add\Remove programs and found the AVG Toolbar entry. Once I clicked to remove it I no longer have that annoying AVG search coming up on new tabs. I changed the default search engine back to Google and now everything seems to be working correctly.

You decided to keep Driver Max,well

people who do what they did,are in my opinion NOT trustworthy

and may well do something worse

to you tomorrow or in their next download.

Not good enough for me.

Hope you don't live to regret it.
