WinTasks Professional 5.0

Bottom Line

This software is far too complex to be of much use to the average user. If you are fairly "techie" though, you could find some of the features help free-up your PC's resources.

WinTasks Professional 5.0, as its name suggests, is not for the novice. It's designed to help you prevent software programs running in the background slowing down your PC's performance, or even harbouring Trojans and spyware.

You are initially presented with a window displaying all the processes running on your PC - how important they are, how much CPU power and memory they take up, their priority, and when they launched. You can click on any process for more detail, but really esoteric programs don't have descriptions, which means you can't tell what they do and if it is important.

However, there are some useful features to help you put a stop to pointless processes. You can click on the Autostart button to find out what starts on bootup and stop anything that you don't really need. You can also block processes by criteria - for example any that use over 70 per cent of the memory - and halt access to certain Web sites.

This software is far too complex to be of much use to the average user. If you are fairly "techie" though, you could find some of the features help free-up your PC's resources.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
