Detailed description of system analysis results

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I posted yesterday but cyberspace seems to have eaten the post, at least I can't see it anywhere.

 

I was wondering if it would be possible to make a list with a description of what entries in system analysis will actually do if applied to your system. I like the idea of optimisation but I also like to know exactly what I am doing before I make a change so I can determine whether it fits my needs or not. I can hazard a guess as to what some of the entries mean but others I have no clue.

 

As one example result from system analysis,

*Optimization*

Optimize Visual Effects

*Registry Key*

DragFullWindows

*Current Value*

1

*Recommended Value*

0

*Registry Entry*

HKEY_CURRENT_USER_\Control Panel\Desktop\

 

and then a description of what making the recommended change will do.

 

Would a list like this be possible?

 

 

Thanks

Hi, the value that you are looking at - "Drag Full Windows" - IS the actual optimization being made. This simply means that when you drag a window, that is, anyone that is not auto fitted to the screen, instead of only seeing a thin grey border of the window that your mouse is dragging while the orginal window stays put, you see the whole window move at once.

But... if he allows AWC to optimize... the DragFullWindow thing will optimize to the 0 value meaning it won't show full windows while moving.

I think that is the kind of definition he is asking for... which in my opinion is needed as well.

I did actually manage to find a similiar explanation as the one you have given Clayton. I was using that entry as an example. A combination of a good description such as that and then (like mfaccone refers to) an explanation of what will happen if you change the default value of the registry key to the value Advanced Windows Care considers optimised is the kind of list I think would be useful.

 

Ideally, a description within the program itself would be best. I think this may avoid people clicking and then wondering why strange changes have occurred to their system. A list on the forum could potentially be really useful for now though. Perhaps before making the changes cautious people might do a search on here to find out what they mean first.

Do you all mean that you would like a key for registry values 0,1,2, and 3 that tells you what each of these set registry values means? Or do you mean that in addition to this, you would like to have a full description of every optimization that AWC performs on your computer? The second would be rather tedious as there already is a brief description of what is being optimized in the registry and other settings. My reasoning behind this is basically the same principle as with many Anti-Virus programs like Norton, who, if they detect a problem on your computer, will give you the virus name and then allow you to research it online but only remove it from the program.

 

However, if you people would like to have a more convenient way to find out exactly what each of these optimizations is and what it does/affects, I would be glad to create a new post (perhaps a sticky so it is easy to find in the Forums) where you can each ask what each optimization is and what AWC is modifying the registry value to be.

 

The only reason I would be truly against having such lengthy descriptions within the program itself is because it would considerably enlarge the program and make it much harder to scroll through the other listed optimizations in that window (unless a new window was made). And I think that would be a lot of stress on the programmers as well. If you can understand my point, it is basically that having such a list for those who make optimizations and then don't understand what happened and then need help fixing the issue if there is one is basically a technical support issue. And there is technical support offered 24/7 both here on the forum and with the IObit Support Team's email.

 

I don't mean to shoot your idea down because it is actually needed. I just don't think that it is priority as of the moment. A stand-in option such as a sticky post of optimizations would probably be a good option for the time being and it may actually prove to be more convenient than you expected- especially because if you still have questions about the description, you can ask them directly in response to the post :)

 

I hope you think this is a good idea and my response helps :)

As far as Windows XP Services the best guide for what services do what , and which are essential , which optimize , etc. is Black Vipers Windows XP Service Pack 2 Service Configurations .http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm

This is very handy reference for the Services Optimisation Recommendations , so you know what your disabling/enabling... running as Manual .

 

As far as Registry settings , basically using your example :

As one example result from system analysis,

*Optimization*

Optimize Visual Effects

*Registry Key*

DragFullWindows

*Current Value*

1

*Recommended Value*

0

=====================================

*Current Value*

1 ( this means "DragFullWindows" is Enabled .

 

*Recommended Value*

0 ( means AWC advices optimal setting is to disable "DragFullWindows" i.e. save some memory by turning of a visual effect .

Sounds like a great idea !

As far as service optimisation, I don't have any results for services within AWC as I disabled unneeded services some time ago before installing AWC. However this is only my personal situation. I feel that a sticky post of optimizations like Clayton suggests would be really helpful.

 

Clayton,

A key for registry values 0,1,2, and 3 that tells you what each of these set registry values means would be good. In addition to this, I do think a full description of every optimization that AWC performs on your computer would be helpful.

 

I currently have 74 items detected in system analysis and I imagine other people have many more. This is a lot of items for someone to ask questions about and someone else to reply to so if we could have a list that people could refer to it could potentially save a lot of time.

 

I can see how this would take a while to compile into a sticky but I would be happy to help with compiling the list. Obviously the results of each computer would be individual so I can only list what I see on my own machine, unless someone has some comprehensive list I can look at. I am searching for the descriptions of my entries anyway (like I said, I can't expect someone to explain 74 entries to me) so if my search can be useful to anyone else I am happy to post it.
