Description
This tool will optimize your computer by killing background processes that take up valuable resources. Download and leave this tool on your desktop to Optimize your computer for DJ performance. Run it before opening the software and press 1 to optimize your system. When you're done DJing, run the tool again and select 2 to restore your system to regular performance.

How To Use
Take the downloaded file and put it in an easily accessible location such as your desktop. Double click the file to open and select "Run"



You will then see the following screen



Press 1 to Optimize. This will turn off all unnecessary background tasks which will free up resources during your DJ performance. When you are done, you can reopen the tool and press 2 to restore to the previous configuration. You can also quit the tool by pressing 3 or just click the X in the corner to close the tool.

The batch file generaly makes the computer useless except running VDJ, connectivity, which could be usefull is turned of, Virus protection turned off etc.
When i am performing i do use the internet, even VDJ wants to connect to the internet.
Maybe an executable with configurable options could be usefull, many users will not alter the file as i did.
on the other hand usefull tool to kill common processes on your PC.

Is this an error in the script?

In the Restore: section first thing you do is


if exist "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Program Files\WinTools Software\RAM Saver Professional\ramsaverpro.exe" start "DJ Script" "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Program Files\WinTools Software\RAM Saver Professional\ramsaverpro.exe"
if exist "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Program Files (x86)\WinTools Software\RAM Saver Professional\ramsaverpro.exe" start "DJ Script" "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Program Files (x86)\WinTools Software\RAM Saver Professional\ramsaverpro.exe"



and at the end of the section you are killing the process again?


Taskkill /im ramsaverpro.exe



And maybe you should add "TuneUP Utilities" too.

Still not fixed....


And you are killing 11 "Other Win processes" but only start 10 again.

"NAUpdate" is missing here.

"osppsvc " is started, but never stopped.

I have seen .
This stops Firewall?
I think thats not good.

It isn't that big a deal, the Hardware firewall (the wifi router) stops external gremlins, the software firewall is about stopping internal programs. If your rig machine is clean (no warez) then it isn't an issue, Also this addon closes off remote access (andthe like), so your point is worth concern but I believe there is little risk.

Still no answer to the Win 8 or 8.1 question.

Posted Fri 27 Feb 15 @ 5:15 pm
The answer to that is right in the 1st post of the thread ;)

Works on Windows 7 and Vista operating systems.

Posted Fri 27 Feb 15 @ 5:22 pm
Yeah, I saw that, but that was in Aug of 14. So, are you working on a version for 8.1?

I'm looking forward to a version that works on Windows 8.1

Lets see what I can do.

And btw: If there are more than 1 firefox tabs open, firefox is not killed. It's asking if you really want to close X tabs.

Posted Tue 03 Mar 15 @ 3:19 pm
That is absolutely normal behavior for any browser with multiple tabs open.

I know, but thought there is a flag to kill it without prompting. (Don't know if there is one though)

Posted Thu 05 Mar 15 @ 3:56 pm
Thanks for this optimizer. In my case, all the "Stopping Stuff that makes your PC look nice..." gives problem in video. So I edit the file and removes these functions.

rem Stopping Stuff that makes your PC look nice...
net stop themes /yes
net stop sensrsvc /yes
net stop AeLookupSvc /yes
net stop UxSms /yes

Thanks a lot
