Anyone know of a Gaming optimizer type program?

I just saw a program out there on the web that optimizes your computer quickly such as closing background processes and programs to optimize your computer when you want to game. They said it was Windows 7 compatible, but i can't find it since I was on a friends laptop when I came across it and wasn't smart enough to try and remember where it was. Even any other programs you guys can think of!

I'm running Intel Quad Core. I don't think that would have to do with it anyways, this program just makes sure your systems resources are to a minimum, so nothing interferes with your game running.

Eh, this is not needed imho. Just open the task manager and end the processes that aren't system critical and off you go.

OMG! I think that might be the program I saw! I would use the task manager, but I would rather have a program I can set to i can do it quickly and easily, and this looks like it is it! Have you used this Anthony? Is it any good?

Thank you!!
