gamebooster is nice...and works as advertised.....

but....it doesn't disable to vast majority of unnessecary services and apps...

my recommendation is to run a google search on any app or services that game booster doesn't disable, and if you dont needed it to disable it manually...remembering what you disabled so you can renable it if it turns out you need it, this includes said tablet pc service and a large number of other things....like BITS (which screws up large file downloads for impulse and ea download manager)

when i first installed vista ultimate 32bit i had like 80 processes running...and promptly disabled 20 of them before getting to the nitty gritty and picking and choosing, some services do the same thing, other services aren't needed if you use certain 3rd party software

BITS is a good example, if you use a download manager BITS isn't needed at all and can make things worse

windows defender and firewall are other good examples

wundows update and windows security center both are useful, but unneeded - the list goes on and on

also all the remote access services...gah i hate those - they are rampant security leaks

Is there a description of what services the GameBooster shuts off?

Well I could not get Dragon Age Origins bought from EA, originally in DVD form or through their download manager, to install on my PC. The process would quit part way through reporting a "data error". When I bought the game through STEAM, it installed fine but now the game crashes often. I can't understand if a majority of people arn't even aware of all those services running in the background how they are able to play the same game perfectly fine with little or next to none crashing issues.

I say again if MS wants to get serious about the PC playing games, they need to really design an OS that turns off all those unnecessary services when you go to run a game, like GAME BOOSTER does. Instead gamers are being treated like we are brain-surgeons having to delve into the intricate workings of said OS to find those offending services and turn them off or disable them. In fact I read when they were first designing Vista that this would be the case when you go to run games, wow what I fool I was to believe them. Vista will be the most gamer friendly OS MS has made, what a load of bunk. Now with the so called improved Windows7, MS keeps on lying to us. This is not what I signed on for when I became a PC gamer. No wonder I keep heading back to my two consoles, you just put the disk in and the game works......wow what a concept.

HERE'S YOUR FIX FOR OVERCLOCKED ATI 38XX AND OTHERS

1. Download Riva Tuner (do google search..its free)
2. Click on Customize, Low Level System Settings
3. Lower Core clock 50 points example: 800 down to 750
4. Lower Memory Clock 50-70 points. example: 1170 down to 1095

Has worked flawlessly for me. Though i'm not sure if its totally safe. Can't imagine it doing any harm to underclock.

You may have to experiment with the settings. Should be around 10 to 15 percent underclock.

Edit: And yes, it works for both Nvidia and ATI

yea...u're right. Game Booster dis-ables a lot of apps..but leaves several running. but it is still a step in the right direction. if using Vista..please turn off Windows Defender...it really slows the system down. booting takes..like forever. u most certainly don't need ur firewall running while playing a game. best solution for most gamers..keep 2 separate systems..a mini laptop for work and net access and a gaming PC for games..and keep ur gaming pc thread bare..just the bare essentials. trust me..u'll be very happy.
