Game Booster May Help Your Pc Play Crysis

by Lambert Varias

I’ve seen a lot of programs that scam/trick people or just plain suck, and usually they’re the ones with crappy or generic names. So when I saw IObit’s Game Booster I was really skeptical, but a quick trip to its website assuaged my fears. Also, IObit has been lauded by tech sites like PC World and ZDnet, and I did find out about Game Booster via Download Squad; I don’t think any of those sites would risk ruining their reputation by recommending crapware.

So what is Game Booster? It’s just a shortcut tool: it provides users with a quick and easily accessible way to turn off certain system processes and programs running in the background. The objective is of course to free up as much resources as possible for your game.  Obviously if you’re anywhere above a computer noob, Game Booster isn’t offering anything new or something that you can’t already do on your own. But for beginners and lazy people, Game Booster is a neat app, especially since it eliminates the need to fire up services.msc and check/un-check stuff every time you want to play a game or do something resource-intensive. It also helps prevent clueless users from borking their computers; like most things in life, messing with the system processes is risky business if you don’t know what you’re doing.

Game Booster is currently in Beta. You can download this tiny (661 KB) program at IObit’s website. It’s compatible with Windows XP, Vista and even 7.
