18 December 2012, Nick Peers

Australian software developer Auslogics Pty Ltd has updated its flagship PC optimization product with the release of Auslogics BoostSpeed 5.5. Version 5.5, which offers a full range of PC cleaning and performance tools, boasts significant improvements to a number of key components, plus includes several Windows 8-specific enhancements.

Headline new features include support for data shredding during file cleaning, better performance finding duplicate files, more accurate Windows 8 Registry cleaning and numerous bug fixes to improve stability.

Auslogics BoostSpeed 5.5 adds a number of notable new features to its roster. The Disk Cleaner component can now securely erase data to prevent future recovery, while the track cleaning portion of Track Eraser has been improved and updated to support the latest builds of several apps, including Skype, MediaMonkey, Nero Burning ROM and RealPlayer.

Better compatibility with Windows 8 is just one of the many improvements in BoostSpeed 5.5.

The Duplicate File Finder component boasts what Auslogics describes as “significant search algorithm improvements” and is smarter when working with DVD video formats. Other enhancements include smoother operation for the Uninstall Manager and fixed reporting bugs in the System Information module. These changes have also found their way into Auslogics Duplicate File Finder, the freeware standalone version of this component.

There are also improvements aimed specifically at Windows 8 users, including optimized tweaking options in the program’s Tweak Manager and better algorithms for cleaning Windows 8 keys in the Registry Cleaner.

Other recent updates, including Auslogics Registry Defrag Free, Auslogics Disk Defrag Free and Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro, are primarily stability updates, with bug fixes and improved language translations the order of the day.

Auslogics BoostSpeed 5.5 is available now as a free trial download for PCs running Windows XP or later.
