Game Booster is an awesome free utility that switches off unnecessary Windows background processes and programs to provide maximum performance for game playing. As we all know Windows
sucks…has a habit of loading up all sorts of unimportant stuff in the background, so the ability to shut them all down is really excellent, even for standard computing needs. Up till now it’s been impossible to do this easily and fast, but this program changes all that.
You can also set up a custom set of your programs you want to close down (for instance Skype, IM etc) which means that with a single button press your machine goes into super lean, high performance, max memory mode. I’m using it to optimize my laptop for screen sharing sessions, when RAM is important, and I’m sure I’ll use it for other purposes too, like movie watching. In fact I may just keep this Vista rubbish in lean mode permanently in order to improve stability. Definitely a download and keeper.
Designed to help optimize your PC for smoother, more responsive game play in the latest PC games with the touch of a button, Game Booster helps achieve the performance edge previously only available to highly technical enthusiasts. It works by temporarily shutting down background processes, cleaning RAM, and intensifying processor performance. That means you can keep all the features of Microsoft Windows Vista and XP ready for when you need them, but turn them off when you are ready to get down to serious business – gaming.
