Default Pitstop and Tuning Tips on PC's

Somebody posted about Windows 7 being slow with Webpage updates with IE

And the WU members posted back The best programs to beef up the speed in the Background Viz MS .NET Framework 4.0 (optimized for Windows 7),Chrome Frame and of Course Google Chrome So a 1 off article on Basic Free Boosts Like these please

Also an Basic introduction to Hardware Tuning Updates Such as Picking Faster Memory for Computers,Processors choice for specific motherboards ,Motherboard Layouts, What popular "sockets" are Available Choosing Fitting PSU's ,DVD Drives,Hard drives

Perhaps a quick Intro/tour of the SIW Program for the readers which demystifies much of whats running in that Box. Saves a lot of time surfing and also is an OK Hardware Fault and part identifier with some experience (within the confines of the box) www.gtopala.com/
It Identified a Dead stick of Memory and the slot location and Even Told me about the Running specs of the Working memory (the 3 working sticks)
Proof from this computer... took me less than 10 seconds to locate and copy this info out off the very long main menu> Hardware section

Also quoted the Computer ID Number which I've ***'d for security reasons

Default Re: Pitstop and Tuning Tips on PC's

Just wanted to add my support for this feature idea. I have Soluto, iobit Systemcare and CCleaner on my machine. I'm sure I don't need them all, and I have no idea if they conflict in any way. I'd like to know! More and more companies are offering these, it's getting confusing.

The SIW Program is decent enough, but IMHO 'Speccy' by Piriform (the makers of CCleaner) does a better job. It too is available as a stand-alone version for running off a USB memory stick.
