Raxco Software's PerfectDisk Receives Vista Certification From Microsoft

Disk Defragmenter Is Industry's Only One to Receive Microsoft's Seal of Approval

GAITHERSBURG, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 31, 2007 -- Raxco Software, the leader in disk defragmentation software, announced today that PerfectDisk® Version 8 has achieved Windows Vista™ certification from Microsoft®. Microsoft's Vista certification program is designed to ensure that third-party software applications operating on Windows Vista meet specific technical requirements.

Microsoft designed its Windows Vista Quality Program to improve the end user experience with third-party software applications in four areas: security (e.g. prevention of malware), compatibility with Vista, installs and uninstalls, and reliability (e.g. hangs and crashes).

"With the growing threat of malware and other security issues, the importance of certification has never been more important," said Greg Hayes, manager of technical operations at Raxco Software. "PerfectDisk has always been at the forefront with certification, and PerfectDisk's Vista certification adds to a long list of certifications that are unmatched by any other disk defragmenter."
