"multifunctional free system optimization"
Toolwiz Care FREE is a free system optimization utility that aims to help improve the speed of computers using Windows 7 or earlier operating system.
There are numerous tools that the user can access to start making some improvements. These include a System Speedup tool to make some tweaks to improve speed, a System Checkup to verify that nothing is out of place with the system as it is configured presently, and a Registry Cleaner to look for old invalid entries and other unnecessary items that are still sitting in the Windows Registry.
The interface is nicely designed with a smart layout which is clear. The mini dashboard to the right is a nice touch. The inclusion of a screen capturing tool with its floating bar including information about the current upload kilobytes per second is an odd touch that seems out of place with an optimization tool.
