Windows 10 Protector

Looking for a tool that optimizes your Windows system while keeping it secure at the same time? Find the Win10 Protector functionality integrated into BoostSpeed 12, the ultimate PC optimizer for Windows. Windows 10 Protector gives you recommendations to enhance Windows 10 security, stability, and speed. Many apps promise to tweak your Windows 10 system for optimal performance, but most of them are actually ransomware designed to block access to personal data and threaten to use it against you. You need a reliable optimization tool that you can trust. Auslogics BoostSpeed 12 has served millions of users and is acknowledged by Microsoft as quality software.

How Win10 Protector Works

The Win10 Protector feature is available on both Auslogics BoostSpeed 12 Free and BoostSpeed 12 Pro. The Windows OS handles dozens of processes and services that are crucial to its normal functioning. With continued use, you will notice that certain features like Cortana may compromise the security of your data, some apps keep bugging you with ads, and sometimes you just want to customize the Windows interface. Ransomware protection for windows 10 is too important to ignore, this is why we created the Win10 Protector to make it easier for you.

To access the tool in BoostSpeed 12, click the All Tools tab and look for Win10 Protector under Security Tools. Once you locate and select the tool, a new tab opens with the Privacy section selected by default. Under this section, the tool provides tweaks to enhance system security and protect sensitive and personal data. Additionally, you’ll find options to make the Windows user interface more convenient to use and customize it to your liking (under APPEARANCE) and more options to optimize system components to improve your system’s efficiency (under SYSTEM TWEAKS).

Here’s what each section entails:



Under PRIVACY, you will find options to tweak your system to prevent data leaks and block irritating ads from popping up when using your computer. As a result, you improve your system security and protect personal data.


Block Unwanted Ads

Ads can be frustrating when using certain applications or just browsing on the internet. Most websites detect your search patterns and serve you ads depending on your browsing activities. Under the PRIVACY tab, the Ad Control feature blocks unwanted ads in Windows 10 so that you can use your applications or browse the internet in peace. This option is available in BoostSpeed 12 Free.


Disable Cortana

Most Windows users might not know this, but Cortana, the Windows built-in search assistant, collects and stores personal information to improve its functionality. If you`re not comfortable allowing your personal data into Windows servers, disable Cortana simply by clicking the Apply link. This option is available in the BoostSpeed 12 Free version.


Reduce Windows Update Traffic

Updating multiple computers connected on a network can use up a lot of bandwidth. So, if you have several computers connected on a network and want to reduce the update traffic, enable the Blocker option. This function blocks Windows from transferring Windows updates between computers on a network, reducing network traffic. This option is available in the BoostSpeed 12 Free version.


Block Location Tracking in Windows 10

Certain apps need to access your location to function properly. While some of these applications may request permission to track your location, others may do so without your authorization. To prevent apps from tracking your location, enable Geo Tools. This option is available in BoostSpeed 12 Free.



Change how the Windows interface looks to make it convenient and easy to use by applying the options under Appearance.


Enable Secret Dark Theme in Windows

Windows 10 has a hidden dark theme for Metro applications (touch-friendly apps for devices like Surface tablets and Windows phones). If you like the Metro app style, you can enable it in Windows 10. The only catch is that the feature is quite hidden. Win10 Protector makes it easy for you to turn on the secret Metro X Theme. This option is only available in the Auslogics BoostSpeed 12 Pro version.


Change Logon Screen Background in Windows 10

Did you know that you could change the background image of the logon screen in Windows 10? The Authorization Wallpaper feature lets you easily customize the logon screen background to one that suits you best. This option is only available in BoostSpeed 12 Pro.


Disable Windows 10 Lock Screen

The Windows 10 lock screen is designed for touchscreen PCs where you unlock your device by swiping on the screen with your finger. If you don’t have a touchscreen Windows device or simply don’t want the feature, you can disable it by selecting the Apply link under Lock Screen. This option is available in Auslogics BoostSpeed 12 Pro.


Optimize Aero Peek Window

Aero Peek, or the Show Desktop feature, is hidden in Windows 10, and you’ll need to move the cursor to the very bottom right corner of your screen to access it. To get the optimal preview window size for Aero Peek, click on the Apply link under Aero Peek View.



Windows 10 Protector in BoostSpeed 12 provides tweaks to free up disk space, remove unneeded files and ultimately improve your system’s efficiency.


Clean Out Retail Demo Content

Retail Demo Content is part of PC junk. When you download apps, programs or other software, you may also download some files that serve you with ads and demonstrate PC capabilities. These files are collectively known as Retail Demo Content, and they fill up disk space. To effectively delete them from your Windows system and create more disk space, we included the Retail Demo Cleaner feature under System Tweaks. Simply click the Apply link and the tool will do the rest.


Delete Unnecessary Links

The installation of software on your Windows 10 computer creates links in the system. When you uninstall the programs, the links may sometimes be left behind. Since they are obsolete, you must remove them from your computer. Although you might not be aware of their existence, enabling the Action Center Cleaner option helps remove the unneeded links from Action Center settings.


Set Mouse Cursor Speed

One of the telltale signs of a slow and sluggish PC is when the mouse cursor starts to freeze. We designed Mouse Boost to help you optimize the speed of the mouse cursor. With enhanced system performance and optimized mouse speed, you can work faster on your computer.


Delete Old Windows OS Files

If you upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 or Windows 8 and you don’t plan to restore your system to the previous Windows version, feel free to use the Backup Cleaner functionality to delete the files of the old Windows OS. Windows 10 is the newest Windows version so far, and having files belonging to the old Windows versions lying around on your computer only fills up disk space. Use this option to free up disk space that you might require for other things.


And if you want to remove unnecessary applications and system components from your PC to improve the efficiency of Windows 10, we recommend you to use Windows Slimmer which is also a part of Auslogics BoostSpeed.
