Default Are there programs that make PC faster?

There are many programs that claim to increase ram, internet speed, and boost system performance.

Is this true?

If so, which are the good programs?

It would be great to boost PC performance without having to buy more ram or something.

I don't think there's really any program's that would work,if you think about it the more program's you put on your comp the slower it would get, wouldn't it?

I tried multiple RAM boosters and didn't notice any difference. It just makes ur comp load all files from scratch everytime u need them.

Get Evidence Eliminator

http://www.internet-washers.com/

It disables all forms of windows tracking, that alone increases your system performance, as half of XP resources is used to track your activities
