How to Stop Unnecessary Windows Process That Use CPU and Memory With JetBoost

Ashish Mundhra

When my computer was new, every game I installed on my computer gave me the best FPS (Frames per Second) and graphics performance. As days passed and new games hit the market, the FPS along with the graphics details reduced. Soon, there was a day when I manually had to close some of the background Windows processes like Explorer and Aero Display to play the games the way they are meant to be played.

It was not only computer games which showed reduced performance, but many applications also behaved the same way.

Of course closing some of the unnecessary background processes helped, but doing it manually was always time consuming, though not while terminating them but when the procedure had to be repeated again and again. So let me introduce an application called JetBoost that can  accomplish this task automatically , hence saving me considerable amount of time.

Download and install JetBoost on your system. Once you launch the program you will see the main screen with a list of performance modes, list of running processes and services. There are three performance modes available.

Work

This mode is best suited when you are working on software like video rippers, video editors, 3D Max, etc., which require high CPU and memory consumption. The mode stops most of the unnecessary background processes so that the focused program can get more processing power.

Game

Run this mode when you are about to play a game on your computer. No, I am not talking about games like Angry Birds or Mafia Wars but like Assassin Creed and Crysis.

Custom

As the name suggests, you can customize this mode according to your needs and select the individual process you want to terminate.

After you select your desired mode, click on the button Start to Boost and wait for the program to terminate the selected application and processes.

Once JetBoost confirms that all selected processes have terminated you can start working or playing with your maximum CPU power. After you are done, start the JetBoost application running in background and click on Restore button.

The program will now rollback all the changes made on your system and leave it as if it was never touched.

My Verdict

Though this program is probably not required for high end computers, which come with multiple processors, dedicated graphics cards and 4 to 8 GB of RAM, if you are working on older machines, which barely meet your Windows operating requirements, you can definitely give JetBoost a try.
