Smart Defrag 2
It is very easy to use all you do is Put the settings at which Services you want it to close and walla happy gaming. This will seem like heaven for people with low Ram or a Slow Proccessor. My Experience with it is my FPS(Frames Per Second) was 25-35 now after i activate GameBooster 2.0 its constantly 39-40 and thats with Multible Accounts logged and Botting at once. My ping was around 200+ on the server i played on and when i Activated GameBooster 2.0 my ping went from 200+ to 100- and my Disconnection rate went from every 30-60minutes to once every 12-24 Hours.(personnel experience. Yours may Vary)
