Hi

 

Just switched to cable extreme.. 7mbps...& my machine works pretty well as is...but wondering if it's safe to choose " max " instead of safe .. when Optimizing?

 

thanks

 

ps...first post

 

:help:

Yes, any changes that Optimize makes that don't improve your system's performance (or otherwise) can be undone by opening the program and selecting "restore system settings" from the first page.

Hi Intel Guy

 

Thanks for the reply. I'm aware I can click " reset " ... however...by choosing 'Max'

Am I limiting security ?

Can you be more specific as to what types of changes Pitstop Optimize is likely to make ?

( Just try'n to calculate if the 'Max performance' is worth the risk & / or has a bigger down side than up.

 

thanks again for your help

 

cheers

I can't find the answer to your question. :huh:

Since you can run the scan and it will show you the suggested changes with an opportunity to cancel, you could run it each way and compare the changes it wants to make. I'm assuming that the difference is going to be in the size of the RWIN or Receive Window, but I am not at all sure. I am not aware of Optimize creating any security issues. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

(I would run it myself and see but it is not installed on the computer I'm using. :blushing: )

 

Hopefully Dave or Keith will be along.

Thanks again Intel Guy

 

I use my computer as a big part of my work to earn a living ...& there's nothing worse than " try'n to fix it if it ain't broke " ... & yet ... I love high performance in everything...so hold'n my nose & here goes...

 

I'll let ya know

 

cheers

Hey Intel Guy

 

Thanks again for your help, YEP, that's exactly what I saw also...did it anyway...then ran another test...this time 3 yellow flags..( that sucks) ... so followed the suggestions & have it down to one yellow...although I set my Temp. Internet files down to 25Mb ... it's still caching at about 160+ ... not sure what to do about that ...or if it's even worth worring about.

 

thanks again

 

cheers

Be sure to look through the instructions and options before running the programs.

 

 

Some stuff to try here, also. (Just imagine the 339 says 160. :rolleyes: )
