Bottom Line

This software is far too complex to be of much use to the average user. If you are fairly "techie" though, you could find some of the features help free-up your PC's resources.

Would you buy this?

WinTasks Professional 5.0, as its name suggests, is not for the novice. It's designed to help you prevent software programs running in the background slowing down your PC's performance, or even harbouring Trojans and spyware.

You are initially presented with a window displaying all the processes running on your PC - how important they are, how much CPU power and memory they take up, their priority, and when they launched. You can click on any process for more detail, but really esoteric programs don't have descriptions, which means you can't tell what they do and if it is important.

However, there are some useful features to help you put a stop to pointless processes. You can click on the Autostart button to find out what starts on bootup and stop anything that you don't really need. You can also block processes by criteria - for example any that use over 70 per cent of the memory - and halt access to certain Web sites.

This software is far too complex to be of much use to the average user. If you are fairly "techie" though, you could find some of the features help free-up your PC's resources.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
