    Pc/Internet Optimizing software recomendations or should I even use it

    Hello I ran into an article from How to Choose the Best PC Optimizer | Speed Up PC and Internet about optimizing your pc and internet using paid for software and I am curious if any one actually knows of a good software to purchase for this or if it is a pointless purchase all together? The article I read was written by the company selling the software so I cant really believe all the hype they included in the article but they did make it sound great. Where I live the quickest internet available is ATT 3mbps DSL which is not great at all. They are putting in the new ATT uverse fiber optic internet in my city but I happen to live about two miles outside the city and that might as well be another state as far as ATT is concerned, I cant even get a round about date of when the fiber optics will make it to me. Any way enough with that, if any one has any advice on the subject I would love to hear your thoughts on it. Thank you very much. Oh yes I am using a Hp G60-447CL notebook with windows 10 and wired connection via Netgear power line adapter.

    You're better off downloading and using the excellent and free SpeedGuide TCPOptimizer program instead. Most of these optimizer programs combine scripted use of built-in Windows utilities with various tweaks and clean-ups (most of which you can do yourself). Not usually worth the money, and sometimes cause more problems than they solve.

    What Ed said, "not usually worth the money" is being kind, W10 does a pretty good job of optimizing on it's own, your hardware has a lot to do with how fast your computer is. 3M download isn't bad for most things, you're not going to watch a movie in HD but for most browsing it's at least adequate.

    IMO I wouldn't spend any money on anything like that, certainly wouldn't use any "free" optimizers.
