This file is absolutely dangerous ! This file will corrupt your system making any viral programs inoperable. Auslogics is the developer of this program, and this program will even make a system restore impossible !

Auslogics Boost Speed ist ein Programm von Auslogics, welches dazu dient, den Rechner zu beschleunigen. Normalerweise wird in der Taskleiste auch ein Symbol von Auslogics angezeigt, insofern es installiert ist. Unter Software-- Programme lässt sich Boostspeed, wie jedes andere Programm auch, deinstallieren und damit aus dem Autostart löschen. Was ich aber nicht empfehlen kann, da das ein wirklich fabelhaftes Programm ist (wenn man die Vollversion gekauft hat).
