Windows 7: About performance booster software

I've used TuneUp 2010 a few years back and got a good impression of it, but then downloaded the trial of 2012 some time ago and got somewhat disappointed. Problem was that it leaves a few services always running, monitoring or doing who nows what, without informing about them, which I don't like at all, it simply fells too invasive for a program that is supposed to run on demand.
Other than that, the tunning options and the ability to modify some hidden Windows settings is still great, and the improvements suggestions are nice too (don't expect miracles, but cleaning garbage out of the registry is always good).

Also I've tried some RamDisk software (DataRam, not the one you're linking, but I guess they're similar). They need even more knowledge to be used properly, and lots of RAM to spare, as they trade free memory for an ultrafast temporary "HD". It's sometimes good to put temp files and other working items.
No idea about the other.

In the end and after many years working with Windows, I came to the conclusion that the only 100% reliable way of speeding up the system (other than adding more hardware) is to fully reformat and cleanly reinstall Windows from scratch. Everything else just gives bits of improvement.

Performance of CAD/CAM Software very slow
Hi, just want to add this and ask for a reason. Software like AutoCAD and 3ds Max, all recent versions, are only about 30% as fast in Windows Vista or 7 RC, than in Windows XP. I'm talking about viewport performance. It's really very sad! Even when disabling ALL visual effekts, the speed in...
