Like an old-time patent medicine, Dr.Salman’s Window Power Tools combines the useful, the harmless, and the potentially dangerous, and sells for an exorbitant price. In this mixed bag of PC utilities, our favorite is HyperNet, which not only optimizes your Internet settings but allows you to customize them by hand. Security Toolkit lets you control access to various parts of Windows (for example, the desktop and the system settings). We were less impressed with the HyperWindows system tweaker, which doesn’t allow the user to specify which Windows settings to change. The MemZilla RAM cleaner may even slow down your computer, since it doesn’t consider the CPU load when optimizing. The interface, for its part, is rather jumbled, and we wish the utilities had been integrated into a single application window. Dr.Salman’s Tools may be all right for curing the PC equivalent of a sore throat, but given its $49.95 price, we think users can easily find handier and cheaper alternatives.
