Do you want to Overclock?

Or do you want to de-clutter to increase efficiency?

Those commercials are too funny! That dude looks so amazed when he figures out the name of the company along with his PC becaoming FINALLY FAST!

I love the chic who checks her e-mail and she gets the blue screen LOL

On topic, I would add RAM, defrag the HD, maybe run disk cleanup etc. I use Tune Up utilities and that works great, but its not free. CCleaner, or Glary's Utilities work really well to speed things up like defraging the registry, optimizing your PC settings and such. Make Windows appearance more performance rated then appearance.

Most people find a fresh module in that spare RAM bank is the easiest way to gain speed. Especially on older PCs

But since you did ask for software i'd suggest a clean up with CCleaner and an Auslogics Defrag

What's your system specs? If you don't know, download CPU-Z and tell us what it tells you. This will help with upgrade advice.

I also love how it's for PC's only, yet half to two thirds of the computers shown are Macs.

Look at the GENERAL HOUSE KEEPING thread for some other good tips!
