ARO scans 3 main areas: Registry, Junk and Security.
The registry scan analyzes 13 areas of the Windows registry for errors and indentifies possible registry tweaks that can help improve PC performance. The junk scan checks 10 areas of the PC for clutter, freeing up disk space by identifying and removing extraneous files that can clutter and slow down a system. It also scans and removes junk accumulated from web browsers including: temporary internet files, cookies, download history and form data/passwords. The baseline security scan confirms a user has up-to-date security software including antivirus, antispyware, and firewall and now also checks the Windows operating system update process to confirm it is properly configured.
ARO 2012 also has the ability to tweak the Windows operating system for improved PC performance. ARO includes a specific set of registry tweaks that can help improve startup times, application performance and general PC performance. While overall results may vary, users who are constantly managing large amounts of media such as pictures, music or movies could see the biggest improvements.
Registry tweaks include:
Improve NTFS performance
The time stamps for "last accessed" files and folders are updated by Windows on a regular basis and this can consume vital processor cycles. Checking this tweak can help improve performance on NTFS system, as this disables the time stamp activity. Users who have large quantities of media such as pictures and music on their PC will find this tweak extremely useful as those files tend to be used and updated more often.
Improve core operating system kernel performance
Drivers that are seldom used and additional system code are normally stored in the physical RAM on a user’s PC. By default Windows is limiting the performance of applications by reducing the amount of physical memory available for use. By optimizing kernel performance your PC will now store this unused information on the disk when it is not being used.
Increase CPU Priority
It is the Windows default to evenly split CPU priority among applications. To improve application performance you can use this tweak to give priority to the application you are actively using.
Increase maximum CPU threads
When the system load is high the amount of CPU threads is limited by Windows. Utilizing this tweak increases the maximum thread count and helps improve PC performance during peak usage.
Speed up windows startup
Normally Windows startup files are spread out across your hard-disk which increases the amount of time it takes the PC to read them in order for Windows to startup. By moving all of the startup files into a contiguous cluster on your hard-disk you’ll decrease the time it takes Windows to startup.
