Running and Using Winboost for Windows 7
With the software installed successfully, you should find that it can be launched from Start > All Programs > Magellas > WinBoost > WinBoost.
The first thing you will notice is that the utility offers an initial 10 day trial that can be extended to 20 days. While testing the application to confirm that it works in Windows 7, choose the default option and click OK.
Upon launch, you will see that are many configuration options, sorted by 9 of the 10 icons across the top of the window. The tenth icon gives access to the Help pages for the application.
Applying a change requires little more than ticking a box and clicking on the play button.
So does Magellas Winboost work with Windows 7? Well, it depends on the feature and function you are trying to alter. Some settings will not work, however much you try, simply due to them existing in completely new locations in the Windows 7 system registry. The software is designed for Windows XP, and beyond taking advantage of Windows 7 compatibility settings, Winboost isn’t physically compatible as an effective system boost utility.
While the idea of running a tool like Winboost is attractive, it is likely that you will receive little benefit in Windows 7.
