Avira is practically a household name in the virus protection industry, with at least 50 million devices using one of the company's programs. System Speedup is a lesser-known software offering from Avira, but it runs along the same lines as their other products in that it aims to make the system run safer and better. System Speedup includes features that keep a user abreast of the current running conditions as well as any changes to the Windows machine. It comes equipped with Startup Guard, which notifies the user when any programs increase the device's start-up time. It also comes standard with features that remove traces of online activity to protect privacy, and it keeps a timer to let the user know when it's time to check the device's status again. Users can also benefit from Avira System Speedup's registry cleaner, which scans the deepest configurations of Windows for possible optimizations. The premium version of the software, which comes equipped with less limitations, costs a yearly fee of $32.
"Users of the free version will be constantly bombarded with messages and pop-ups urging the user to pay for the premium version". And I expect more stuffs... With the free version, one day I had 185 sec to start (before it was about 15s) and the same for the next starts -> I uninstalled Avira and now I don't have the calculation given by Avira but it must be less than 12sec. No more issues !
