Once configured to your requirements, Red Button will quickly optimize Windows

It may be hard to believe that optimizing your Windows OS can be as simple as pressing the Red Button, but that's just what this powerful little utility is able to do.

Install Red Button on your system, complete with a desktop icon, or copy the portable version to a flash drive to have at hand for cleaning up other devices. Remove junk files, internet tracking, Windows components you never use. Free up disk space, optimize the registry and activate Windows settings you never knew you had. The free Red Button utility will optimize Windows and have your system running faster and better in no time at all.

Getting started

Download and install Red Button and its components, then click the desktop icon to open the launch window. Menu bar items include Options, Features and Help tabs. Help takes you to the Red Button website and Options provides a General tab for you to customize your settings, a System Restore tab and the Portable Version tab which enables you to copy the utility to an optical drive.

The Features panel is the center of operations! It provides you with tabs for access to five modules:

  • Disk Cleaner
  • Registry Cleaner
  • Performance Tweaks
  • OS Components
  • Data Eraser

Disk Cleaner

At left, there are tabs for System, Applications, Wildcards and Other. In each case, the unnecessary files that the module is able to clean are listed. These can be checked for analyzing, a panel at right providing you with the path and size of the resulting files. Once scanned you can click either the OK or Cancel box. All the files that gradually accumulate on your system are listed with checkboxes. You are also provided with the option of manually entering any files you want to exclude.

Registry Cleaner

With a layout similar to the Disk Cleaner, Registry Cleaner displays unnecessary keys and values data under an Errors group and a History group. Again, these can be checked for analyzing before being selected, and exclusions can be manually set up. Speed and stability are improved with registry cleaning.

Performance Tweaks

This module provides a list of processes with checkboxes that can be tweaked to system performance. You are enabled to automatically close hung programs and services and disable effects, processes and applications you never use to increase loading speed and operation.

OS Components

Here you are provided with a complete list of the components that Windows installs by default. Removing them will optimize Windows and improve power efficiency, operation and both launching and shutting down of Windows.

Unlike the other modules, changes made here cannot be reversed by Red Button. If you change your mind later you'll need your original Windows CD/DVD installation disk to replace them.

Data Eraser

Contents of files are not actually removed when you delete them from your system. They are simply removed from the system directory and can be retrieved by software created for the purpose. All areas of a disk are not likely to be completely empty after repartitioning or reformatting. This is where the Data Eraser module comes in.

Sensitive data is removed by overwriting it a number of times with a selectable pattern. Free disk space, free RAM space or the entire disk are the three tab selections. Each panel enables you to select the pattern to be used and, in each case, you are thoroughly warned that data is irretrievable after erasure.

Once you have completed configuring each of the modules, you are enabled to constantly maintain your operating system by pressing the Launch button on the launch window of the utility. Yes, installing and configuring Red Button lets you optimize Windows at the touch of a button. Save time, increase security and energy efficiency. The free Red Button tool is compatible with all 32- and 64- bit recent versions of Windows.
