JetBoost 1.1

Reviewed by Gary Oldwood on - Version tested: 1.1

"One-Click solution for PC tune-up"

Overview

JetBoost is a free and reliable solution from BlueSprig designed to optimize performance of your computer and make sure that it always is as fast as it can be. It can terminate all unnecessary processes and services to save memory and CPU, as well as determine which ones to keep depending on what you want to use the computer for (gaming or work). In addition, you can manually pick which applications to close instead of letting the program do a fully automatic job.

Installation

You will barely have to lift a finger to setup this program, as the installation process is fairly quick and straightforward with no special configurations in the middle. The installation package is clean and doesn’t include malware or any kind of additional software.

JetBoost can run perfectly under any Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7 or 8 OS, either 32 or 64-bit versions.

Interface

The interface is simple, with not many features to choose from. It has two tabs, Boost and Settings, from which you can either start speeding up your computer or tweak the program’s settings to better suit your needs. In the boost tab, you have 3 scanning modes available: Work, Game or Custom. Between Work and Game modes, different processes will be shut down for better performance of the corresponding usage. The Custom option allows you to choose manually which services you want to keep and which ones to end. Regardless of which mode you pick, there is a box with details about all running or stopped processes and services, which you can hide and unhide easily by clicking on the appropriate bar. The speedup process will occur as soon as you click on the blue button that says “Start to Boost”.

Pros

You don’t have to do anything, really. With just one click JetBoost will ensure that your system is running at maximum speed, no longer loaded with unneeded processes that make it drop in performance. A more accurate boosting model will be created for you if you are a gamer, which includes termination of processes that would keep running normally but are unnecessary during gameplay.

Other tuning options include RAM cleaning, disabling automatic updates so that they do not interrupt while working or playing, enabling game power resolution which tweaks your power settings to high performance, clipboard clearing and others.

It is noteworthy that many translations are available for this software: English, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese (Simple and Traditional), Estonian, Dutch, German, Japanese, Turkish, French, Italian, Hungarian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

Cons

Currently it only has very few features, although more could be added to make it a more complete system boosting application.

Alternatives

TuneUp Utilities is a well-known contestant in the area of PC cleanup and performance improvement. With it not only you can hasten your computer using many tools, but you can change the whole appearance of Windows by adjusting tons of hidden settings.

Ultimate Windows Tweaker is a freeware for tweaking and optimizing Windows Vista and 7. It can make your system faster and more stable without much effort. You can use it as a portable application too.

Conclusion

JetBoost, unlike other PC optimizing utilities, has very few options and features that can only achieve basic speedup of your computer, mainly by terminating unnecessary processes running in the background. Whilst that’s a useful feature, it could use some extra tools to make it a more efficient program. In its current state though, it's still a good and easy to run system booster, so do give this freeware a try and see how much boost you get for your particular system!

Requirements: 300 MHz processor or faster processor; 256 MB of RAM; 30 MB of free hard disk space.

What's new in this version: + Brand new user interface + Added portable version + Added more supported language: ChineseTrad, Estonian, Dutch, German, Japanese, Turkish + Added support for Windows 8 + Improved boost functionality for more stable performance + Improved user experience + Fixed bugs in the previous version
