AntiCrash Software - Prevent Crashes the Easy Way
If you have any experience with computers, you have probably experienced at least a few crashes. While modern computers are very complex machines capable of performing millions of operations in a single second, they are still not very reliable. In fact, the faster our computers get, the more code they will execute every second; and the more code they execute, the more likely they are to run into a bug or some other problem.
For this reason, I seriously doubt that there will ever be a computer that never crashes.
While most of us have learned to live with a few crashes from time to time, there are ways to avoid
at least 90% of all crashes. A majority of all system crashes are caused by a single application running into a bug or running out of resources. While you cannot easily prevent the first case from happening, you can often recover from these situations with a few simple steps. When software runs into a bug, it often starts repeating the same task indefinitely, blocking your CPU and preventing other applications, including Windows, from executing and responding to your commands.
Recovering from Crashes
The best way to recover from this situation is to terminate the misbehaving application before the problem spreads to other applications. Since you may only have a few seconds before the problem gets more serious, you must be able to terminate suspicious applications very quickly before the problem causes your system to freeze up completely.
SpeedUpMyPC helps you do this by allowing you to set a quick key combination for activating SpeedUpMyPC's crash recovery feature at any time. As soon as the anti-crash feature is started, SpeedUpMyPC will automatically find and terminate any applications that look suspicious, until the system starts responding again.
One other closely-related problem occurs when a single application allocates all available resources until the computer stops responding. This often happens when a bug causes a program to repeat the task over and over and that task includes the allocation of resources. This situation can often be resolved by terminating the application before your system runs out of resources. Again, it is important to start the crash recovery function quickly before the simple problem causes other more serious problems.
SpeedUpMyPC also allows you to automatically assign more resources to Windows whenever your CPU usage exceeds a certain limit. This can be very helpful since it will make the Windows shell work even if some other application is trying to use 100% of the CPU resources.
Freeing Up More Resources
Finally, you can often prevent crashes from happening at all by ensuring that you never run out of memory and other critical resources. SpeedUpMyPC can help you achieve this by freeing up more RAM as soon as a certain memory usage limit is exceeded. This fully automatic RAM recovery feature ensures that there is always enough free RAM to run your favourite applications without running out of resources.
