Over the last two or three years I've tried many programs that claim to speed up your computer and in the main the difference has been noticeably indifferent.

Ever the optimist I downloaded and installed Hare and Whooooosh!!!!, blimey!! who put stronger elastic in my machine? This program does the business. Programs open instantly and overall the machine is much faster. According to Hares' own benchmark tester my machine is 116% faster and it claims it can get up to 300% on some machines. I believe them. Not being a gamer I can't verify their claim in that department but if it is anything like the improvements I got it'll be a case of "Oh Happy Gamer".

This is how Dachschund Software describe this program and I totally agree -"Accelerate any computer, including Pentium 4 and AMD Athlon! Accelerate 2D & 3D full-screen games"...."Unlike other acceleration software, Hare doesn't use well-known acceleration techniques. That is why even leading-edge computers can be accelerated."......"With the Windows Optimization feature, optimize Windows, clean the registry and speed up application launching in seconds, with a very easy-to-use wizard."...."Stop getting dramatic slowdowns in last-generation 3D games. With Hare and its Game Orb technology, get up to 10fps improvement."...."Hare is easy-to-use. Don't get lost in obscure interface and functions proposed by other acceleration systems. Why bother when Hare is here?"

I won't go into the technical ins and outs here, you can read all that on their site What I will say is that this software does what it says it will do and is well worth the asking price.
