Why UpdateStar Kahuna?
Windows users are often confronted with a deteriorating performance of their Windows system from day one. This phenomenon of deteriorating performance under Windows systems is for many users a daily problem, and is caused by a number of reasons. With Kahuna, users no longer have to accept poor performance from their PCs! Kahuna tackles this problem head-on, and is aimed at PC users who are looking to regain that lost performance. UpdateStar Kahuna now offers PC users all the tools they need to improve a PC’s performance by optimizing software settings and fixing common problems.
System Maintenance and Security
Kahuna’s maintenance utilities optimize the Windows settings and keep the PC healthy. These utilities take care of certificates, computer management, registry entries, devices, performance, default applications, backup and restore operations. The security tools allow for management of users accounts, security settings, and firewall operations. Kahuna also comes with an integrated Privacy Protector to wipe clean from the PC all traces of internet history or other activities like recently accessed programs and files.
The accompanying Uninstaller allows users to easily identify and uninstall any application which is not required anymore. The Mass File Renamer allows for batch renaming of files with a number of options. The Split and Join Files module divides large files into pieces for optimized mobility on size-limited media, and rejoins the parts later. The security tools allow users to block programs from execution and to securely delete sensitive stored data beyond recovery. Also included are file encryption capabilities to protect private and confidential information.
Optimization and Speed-up
The easy-to-use Single Click Care module performs a specific series of tasks to tune up the PC. It cleans and optimizes a Windows system with just one single click! This module is designed for users to get the most out of their PC with minimum effort. It automatically
optimizes the system, protects the users’ privacy, cleans existing junk files, and optimizes the memory.
The optimization modules included in the Suite can be used to speed up the PC for faster response times. The Startup Manager provides control over automatically started programs at the Windows startup. You can decide which programs you allow to start and which programs are removed from this list. The Memory Optimizer helps to manage the memory of the system and frees up RAM and the Disk Defrag module guarantees optimized hard disk performance, which is crucial for overall system performance. The Registry Defragger keeps the system’s registry optimized to extract the best performance. The Junk File Cleaner and Duplicate File Finder enable users to clean up unnecessary files and maximize available disk space.
Kahuna Power Tools
These helpful tools customize the system. The System Information module provides additional information about running processes, installed hardware and software plus a Hard Disk Monitor.
