All of the tools in PowerSuite claim to be "Exceptionally Simple to Use" which I fully agree with. It's clear that a great deal of time and effort went into the sleek interfaces. More than the good looks, the tools are very intuitive and have everything you would expect.
I tested PowerSuite on my office laptop which just happens to be booting slower lately. It's really in need of a re-image from the IT tech grunts. So, what better situation to put PowerSuite through its paces?
47 sec to login
6' 11" to usable state in Windows (yeah, that bad, VPN, crazy login script, etc.)
45 sec to login
5' 35" to usable state in Windows. Considering the state of my laptop, this 36 second improvement was pretty impressive.
It didn't really improve upon my boot times but it did reduce the time it took to load applications like Visual Studio .NET, Office 2007, Firefox, and other apps by couple of seconds. Their times to close down appeared to speed up as well. This may not sound like much but it has since been very noticeable using the laptop daily.
My laptop was crystal clear of any malware to begin with so not much difference here. I can say that I like the options SpyEraser offers and it seemed to do a very thorough scan.
