I got a 4 year old gaming laptop that I use for WoW. It's slowly starting to show its age. I plan to get a new one later this year before WoWs next expansion. Before I do though I'd like to get as much out of this one as I can.

Has anyone used any really good optimizer that they then noticed an improvement with their pc?

Maybe it's my way thinking, but I've always looked at programs that say 'we found 76 errors, pay us now to fix them' as a scam. Am I wrong to think this way?

Those come-ons are a scam. I routinely run a few free programs to keep my rig clean and optimized. I don't notice an uptick in performance, because I use them frequently.

I use Malwarebytes free, CCleaner free, and SUPERAntispyware free to check for malware, spyware, and "take out the trash". If you've never run this type of maintenance on your system, I think you may see some performance gains. These are tried and true programs I have used for years, and I have never had any issues with them.

I couldn't agree more.
