AlacrityPC is a utility designed to help you get the most performance out of your computer when running resource intensive applications, like modern games. It does this by shutting down unnecessary services and programs before starting your application. When you finish your application, those services and programs can be automatically restarted.
AlacrityPC also provides some additional optimizations, like memory defragmenting, removing your desktop background, shutting down the desktop shell and Vista Sidebar, and forcing background tasks to execute.
AlacrityPC is the sequel to FSAutoStart. It is written in C# .NET 2.0.
- gaming profiles
- memory defragmentation
- services administration
I like this program. I have three comments about it though. 1-Bringing back the default settings is difficult, even after uninstallation. If I remember correctly, the APPDATA folder in Window's user profile keeps information after an uninstall, so getting the default settings back requires more attention than most other programs I use. 2-Keeping it functional seems a bit fragile (programs list for optimizing keeps old entries, and I have run into problems there.) 3-The initial setup takes a bit of time, but isn't difficult. Final words: This program is very good at what it does, but it has some useability issues.
