    Does it mean I have to uninstall my current Cortex and re-download this new version?

    Updates are always welcome, but I preferred the old logo.
    What are your opinions?

    I uninstalled the old version before I added the new 9 version, no issues with it at all. Looks good, noticed that the Gamecaster was replaced with a System Booster, no biggie as I never used the Gamecaster anyhow, but I'm always cautious about these System Boosters ( nasty results from these in the past ). So off to the old trusty Laptop ( the guinea-pig LOL ) just to see how far and deep it will go.

    Glad to say nothing essential was removed to cause issues, so I try it on my main rig and it does a nice job in removing the unnecessary junk and not messing with stuff to screw things up, good job Razer.

    Installed it then realized there was no game caster. I tried to see if it was just under different tabs or something completely different, realized it was not in at all so I uninstalled it and reinstalled a older version I had. :3 Of course the main thing I use cortex for gets removed.

    I was hoping they would add some control over the System Booster, the infamy of Razer software precedes them and I don't trust Cortex to not mess things up. Specifically, I want to turn off defragging, I have 4 SSDs and a single HDD. It would also be nice to know what files are being touched in the System Clean function.

    The new logo isn't centered and it bugs the crap out of me! lol

    It's on it's own download now scroll down to the bottom of the page to get the download.

    It's all there under the scan button ; there are check boxes for system clean/ speed up/ and defrag games. Under that down at the bottom of the page you can click "View Scan Results" and from here you can expand to see what it's going to do. Hope that helps.

    ps. I can't help you about the position of the logo LOL

    The download is for the old cortex, GameCaster isn't its own program yet. I had the same reply until I hit the button and it said it was the Cortex 8.xx.exe

    Hmm, I don't have check boxes, just dots.

    Does the scan not immediately take action? I haven't even hit that yet.

    Ok, sorry I didn't click on the Gamecaster download I just saw it there.
    And as for the scan yes you have to click on it then it turns to an Optimize button and under that is where you find the checks and "view scan results" and from there it is broken down more by expanding it will go all the way till it shows the files involved. Recommend is safe the other stuff not checked is going deeper and may or may not cause some unwanted results but there is a warning that comes up if you click on them, I had no ill effects by optimizing with Recommended settings. So far so good on my end hopefully you don't get bad results, good luck.

    Note: From what I can tell it just clears what is really not needing to be running and some temp files, things like that.

    Ha Ha Ha !!! I just have seen the irony in our names you're Chicken and I'm NotThisAgain and we both are cautious with this stuff LOL, it sounds like we have been on the same street at one point or another, ya know the one "Misery Lane". That's funny, and also why I loaded it on my old laptop to try it out, no biggie if I have to do a clean Windows install on it. Why I call it the "Guiney-pig" it's no matter if I kill it lol.

    Yes. They really need to fix the bugs and improve the hypershift.

    The booster feature is absolutely useless especially if you have 16GB RAM.
