To test this software, I will time various start up and shutdown times on a well used computer. This computer is a high-end desktop system that is used on a daily basis by several members of my family. It is constantly having software installed/removed and having hardware swapped out, so it is quite 'dirty'. Let's put Uniblue to the test!
- AMD Phenom II X4 965
- ASUS M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 Motherboard
- Mushkin 996744 2 x 2GB DDR3 1600MHz Memory
- NVidia GTX 260 (216)
- Mushkin Power Supply
- Seagate 750GB 32MB Cache 7200.11 Hard Drive
- Lite-On SATA DVD-RW Burner
- Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit
Once you run the scan and the items are fixed, you are sent to the Scan Results section of the Speed Scan tab. This time since the scan was complete, the status shows "Perfect" and the system utility has done its job. On the Overview page, you will notice now that the Speed Loss indicator shows "Optimized" and the guage to the left has moved to the sunny side.
While some of the times were not greatly effected, the Windows Start Up time was shortened by 24 seconds, which is a lifetime in computer terms.
