Game Booster is a software that helps you optimize your PC so that you get better performance while playing resource intensive games. The program accomplishes this by shutting down a variety of Windows background services that are normally not needed during game play, cleaning RAM, defragmenting game directories and intensifying processor performance.
In addition to stopping Windows services, the program can also close other, user-defined, applications to further reduce system load. Once you are finished playing your game, simply click a button to restart all the services and regain full functionality for regular PC usage.
Game Booster simplifies and speeds downloading and updating of video and sound drivers, as well as game software like Ventrilio and Steam. The software also allows you to fine-tune mouse, keyboard, and specialized game controllers with ease.
