I'm sure if my program was not safe the site owner and staff will not let me give you the link as i said the virus scanners are detecting my program with false positive results my program safe haven't you seen the youtube video i made i'm using the program on my own computer. But i understand you want to be sure so wait for staff to answer your question.

No. It gets blocked by my virus scan. Phillpower, is Freebooter's program safe?

 

There is nothing to suggest that it is not but I have asked for a senior member of staff to advise.

I can provide the content of the program that is not a problem and when program compiled and tested they will come a cross same virus scan results.

In my opinion they are useless and a total waste of time, more likely to do damage than be of any use.

See my next resoponse for a more reasonable response.

hi Ztruker,

 

If you are talking about my program please test the program within virtual machine before making such a claim that my program won't help boost speed of Windows and Network connections.

Will do but I have never found any program that makes that claim that actually does so.

 

I'll report back in a bit.

 

1st link:

 

Definite misunderstanding. I was under the impression that you had written two programs that you claimed made these improvements. Looking through the information at the links you posted I see it is just recommendations for using know good software, like CCleaner or known good practices for for reducing unneeded programs.

 

Some of what you recommend in the first link, having possibly having a small effect on performance, makes the coumpter less useable, at least for me, as well as less attractive to see (desktop background for instance).

 

Over all, a very good list of suggestions.

 

2nd link: SysPerf program

 

 Windows defender continually says it's a virus and deletes it, as you said it would. Running it now.

It also makes about 100 registry changes some of which I recognize, most I don't.

 

You run Disk Cleanup which removes Windows.old thus preventing someone from reverting back to the previous OS. Only a concern until the 30 day mark is hit, as after that it's cleaned up anyway.

 

You run DISM which is okay but you then delete all existing Event viewer entries. Mostly okay but sometimes this can cause loss of useful information.

 

Sorry but I don't recommend this one.

Yes you are correct this program does delete Windows.old i know lots of Windows user want to delete this folder as Windows will not delete this folder content after 30 days have pass.

I delete the event viewer logs to make sure user can found errors he or she looking for smaller the logs easier for users to find logs they looking for.

The registry changes are safe i have test them all one at time to make sure they work and wont cause any issues i also use a program to backup registry user of my program can restore those registry changes.

I have no idea why virus scanners think my program is a virus its not a virus i created this program to help those who have slow computers just trying to be helpful, i have use this program on my current computer and everything works without any errors and internet is much faster in my view.

Yup. Still here. Hadn't seen any updates lately. Seemed to work ok today when I woke from sleep. Wanted to see if the changes lasted before posting anything. I did a few other things on my own (disabled some services I knew I didn't need and removing some programs I didn't know were still there), and I'm hoping it keeps working ok. I'll post again in a couple days after I've woken it from sleep a few more times. Thanks for reminding to look at it (this post) again!

Ok. It's been a few days and I think it's working better. I'm just going to say it is and can start a new thread if it goes kablooey again.

 

Thanks for the help!

Jason

 

P.S. Do I just clicked the mark solved button or can you end this thread for me?
