MAGIX PC Check & Tuning takes care of your system

Optimizing your computer performance can be a difficult and risky job. It’s either you know how to do it, or you don’t.  In case you are included in the second category, the only solution is to install an utility that is able to perform maintenance. There are lots of this type of applications, making it hard for a casual user to choose a suitable one. PC Check & Tuning can be your friend if you decide to install it and is able to bring your computer to an optimal state.

PC Check & Tuning 2011 comes with a “Fix all problems” that perform automatically several activities in a single step. You only have to use “Settings” option to set which activities should be performed automatically. You can choose from checking your drivers and software programs to see it these are up to date or not, or perform a variety of optimization tasks, such as removing startup items or unnecessary registry entries. Thanks to the direct connection of the software update function to a comprehensive software catalog, new programs and drivers versions can be downloaded immediately increasing the security of your system.

Applications that run in the background often waste a lot of power. The PC Check & Tuning power saving scheme provides access to hidden Windows power saving functions. You can reduce your computer’s power consumption by up to 15 percent. Benefit from longer battery life on your notebook computer and use power more efficiently. Depending on your needs and workflow, you can choose between different power profiles, which allow you to regulate your power consumption more efficiently. An easy-to-understand color chart visualizes your energy demand and immediately displays any changes that have been made.

For an increased performance when you need it, the app comes with high-speed module that actually deactivates all the rarely used services and functions. In this way when you run a program which needs additional resources, just activate this module in order to obtain that extra power that you need. Your system can be brought to its initial state by deactivating the high speed module. All the programs in the background will be reactivated instantly.

MAGIX PC Check Live is another interesting module from PC Check & Tuning that monitors the state of your computer in the background and cleans up your hard drive automatically if necessary. It even notifies the user in case of major problems or if any program updates are available. With this module running all the time in the background, the program gives the user a secure feeling without the need of actually doing something manually. Again this module can be set through the “Settings” menu by adding or removing what to be checked in the course of continuous tests.

MAGIX PC Check & Tuning is definitely not your normal PC check utility, but more of a bonus product that not only can find the problems to your system but it can also fix them and even improve the normal state of your computer.

Autoruns from Microsoft has been updated to version 11

Autoruns is a Sysinternals utility that shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup or login, and shows you the entries in the order Windows processes them. Developed by Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell, this utility brings a deeper control in terms of auto-start applications and registry files. It represents everything that MSConfig cannot do.

Autoruns is a portable utility, so all you have to do is to copy it in a secure location on your hard drive and simply run it. The app starts instantly showing you 18 tabs including logon entries, Explorer add-ons, Internet Explorer add-ons including Browser Helper Objects (BHOs), Appinit DLLs, image hijacks, boot execute images, Winlogon notification DLLs, Windows Services and Winsock Layered Service Providers. It’s a classic chaotic interface for casual users, but I have to admit that this is the best way to view from a single look everything that breaths on your computer.

Overall, using this utility is simple if you know exactly what are the components running in your system. For example if you want to disable an auto-start entry uncheck its check box. This option is very useful in case you want to find out what that entry is doing in your system without taking the risk to delete it. To delete an auto-start configuration entry just use the Delete menu item or toolbar button. If you want to locate any registry file of an auto-start item just use the Jump menu item or toolbar button.

This utility works also in conjunction with other Sysinternals utilities. In case you want to view the properties of an executable configured to run automatically, select it and use the Properties menu item or toolbar button. If Process Explorer is running and there is an active process executing the selected executable then the Process Explorer menu item in the Entry menu will open the process properties dialog box for the process executing the selected image.

In addition Autoruns’ Hide Signed Microsoft Entries option helps you to zoom in on third-party auto-starting images that have been added to your system and it has support for looking at the auto-starting images configured for other accounts configured on a system. Also included in the download archive is a command-line equivalent to Autorun that can output in CSV format, Autorunsc.

Windows 8 leaks roundup

Even though nothing is official yet, and there are thousands of rumors about how Windows 8 will be, I decided to roundup any rumor and pack them in a nice and tidy post.

First rumor that everybody is “huffing” and “puffing” is the Windows 8 built-in market place.

The screenshot does remind me of something, but I can’t put my finger on what exactly. The principle is quite easy and most of us are used with it from Apple. Lots of apps, one place, secure download, easy install etc..

 

Windows 8 Smartscreen – this is a security feature that checks any files you open. I know what you would say, your antivirus does that, Microsoft Essentials does that, but this one is built-in. This feature is currently used by Internet Explorer and MSN

 

 

 

 

Windows UI Auto Color – basically the Aero will determine your wallpaper dominant color and change automatically its interface.

You will also be able to customize the interface elements individually, like taskbar, start menu and so on.

 

 

 

There is also a rumor that now you will be able to open your ISO files and mount them directly from the operating system.

This feature is long-time desired for many windows users all around the world. I don’t want to be a critical, but I really wonder where they got this idea from. (Mac OS X .dmg)

You will also find a built-in PDF reader app currently named Windows 8 AppX PDF Reader.

I am sure many windows users sooner or later had to reinstall the operating system due to different errors or problems. Windows 8 might come with a “reset” button; not a hardware but a software one. This feature should reset the OS and restore it to its factory settings. There is quite a buzz about this feature, according to the rumors it will take only minutes, but nobody knows how exactly and what will happen to your installed applications.

If this feature will keep your current apps installed, your files or will erase everything and leave you with a fresh start, we don’t know yet, but surely looks like Microsoft got some hints from Appstore why wouldn’t they create also something like Time Machine.

There are also rumors like Log-in using facial recognition and the PC camera, Faster Start-up, Better and more useful Help and Ribbon based Windows Explorer.

Do you know how to set Windows 7 to launch a program automatically on start-up ?

Assuming the application is already installed and there was a shortcut created: click ‘Start’, then, ‘All programs’, and look for the application shortcut of the program that you want to launch on Windows on start-up.

Right-click on the shortcut and click ‘Copy’.

Look into the ‘Startup’ folder, right click on any empty space and click ‘Paste’.

That’s all, the application will start every time your computer boots-up.
