Has anyone had any expericnce Auslogics BoostSpeed 9 software, and do you trust it? This program was suggested to me to keep my PC clean, running Windows 10 Insider Program-Build #14942. No one in our group has used it, but are curious.

All of that stuff is actually malware or worse. Never use them. If you got the notification on your PC, I'd suggest a fresh installation, as your PC has probably been compromised by other malware already.

Programs like that are IMHO crap.  The best suggestion is to use a SSD as your boot device

You can do most of what it offers yourself and for free.

Defrag -- get Defraggler from Piriform  https://www.piriform.com/
Cleanup unwanted files -- get CCleaner from Piriform
Recover deleted files -- get Recuva from Piriform
Piriform has free versions of these files and paid versions.  If you use and like the product buy it.

Now as for the rest of what BoostSpeed offers, just get more memory for your computer.  Windows likes memory like a V8 likes petrol.

Sorry for the delay Gents, I had began Phase III of a clinical Trial for AML at M.D. Anderson Cancer Clinic, and was too ill from effects to even think about this question. Thanks very much for your assistance!
