MAGIX PC Check and Tuning 2011
Keep your PC running in tip-top condition without getting your hands dirty.

It’s almost imperceptible, but your PC starts to creak at the seams within weeks of use, whether you’ve just bought it brand spanking new or have reinstalled Windows from scratch. As new programs are added, files created, edited and maybe deleted, your computer starts to show virtual wear and tear. You can, of course, adopt a vigorous health regimen for your computer, running all kinds of utilities and performing checks on a regular basis, but that takes time away from actually using your computer for the reasons you bought it in the first place.

MAGIX PC Check & Tuning aims – quite successfully – to take over the maintenance and optimisation of your PC. It’s basically split into two components: the check side, which performs regular health tests at hourly intervals, and the tuning side, where you can quickly optimise your PC to regain lost performance.

There’s an automatic checking tool that runs in the background, and will alert you every hour when necessary – tests include checking your security is working and up to date, your hard drive’s SMART status and processor temperature. You can also configure the check to alert you if your drive fragments and if superfluous files start to build up on your computer.

There’s also a one-click button that can be used to scan and clean your system, but you can combine all of these features with the rest of PC Check & Tuning’s feature set by opening the main program interface. Here you can scan your entire system for potential problems and performance bottlenecks, and the program covers just about all the bases – even expert users will be impressed with the areas it covers. The beauty, of course, is that you don’t need to be an expert user to use it – the results are displayed clearly and you can either opt to fix them all or simply resolve individual problems with a single click.

It doesn’t end there – there’s a simple backup tool, data shredder and comprehensive information tool; basically everything you need to keep your PC in tip-top shape.

The 2011 release promises optimised performance, plus a host of useful new features. These include the ability to optimise your startup routine with a single click, plus keep software updated and tweak your PC’s power settings to save energy.

Verdict:

Your essential PC tool kit which help to minimise bottlenecks and maximise performance.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
