ConsumerSoft's best-selling My Faster PC Windows utility suite now stops Internet Explorer browser add-ons from overburdening your PC.
NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) April 9th, 2010 -- Consumer Software International, Inc. today announced the latest upgrade to its best-selling My Faster PC diagnostic and repair software. Now, with the release of version 5.3, the best-selling Windows utility suite boasts the Browser Add-on Manager, a tool that helps the program's 3 million users manage search toolbars and other browser accessories that can slow down and even crash Internet Explorer.
Popular browser add-ons include major search engine toolbars as well as applications that let you click on phone numbers to make calls over the Internet. But many browser add-ons get installed without the user's knowledge, and they're known to cause troubling effects. One recent report found that the silent accumulation of toolbars, extensions and so-called helper apps to the browser can add significant load times - resulting in a sluggish performance and notable delays when opening Internet Explorer windows or downloading content from the Web.
"While Internet Explorer browser add-ons are generally useful and enhance the browsing experience, many are notorious for grinding computers to a halt," says Robert Thompson, EVP of Product Development for ConsumerSoft. "With the Browser Add-on Manager, the My Faster PC suite empowers PC owners to eliminate unwanted add-ons and enjoy fast web browsing again."
The My Faster PC 5.3 utility also features a full complement of tools to diagnose and repair hidden errors that slow down PCs. These tools include the Startup Item Manager, an application that finds, identifies and helps you eliminate unnecessary processes that launch at startup and which can cause a "memory bottleneck," leading to slow boot times.
"At ConsumerSoft, we always aim to help computer users get their PCs back to the fast, 'out-of-the-box' state," notes Thompson. And by helping PC owners manage or remove junk startup files and browser add-ons from "clutterware" applications that come pre-installed on most computers, My Faster PC software could make the PC even a bit brisker than it was when first bought.
My Faster PC is currently offering a free trial download for new customers to demonstrate how it can help make computing fast and fun again. The full version costs $29.95. ConsumerSoft recommends that all current full My Faster PC users download the 5.3 upgrade, which ConsumerSoft has made available to them at no cost.
