Ashampoo WinOptimizer 2014 review

Ashampoo WinOptimizer 2014 lets beginners and experts benefit from its PC tweaks, deep cleaning, and protection. This freeware is suitable for Windows XP to 8.

WinOptimizer's setup process asks if your system boots from an SSD or HDD. We selected SSD, which deactivated the Hibernation and Windows Search/Indexing options, leaving only the option to delete old backups. WinOptimizer's initial scan found issues in all three of its primary features: Clean, 1GB of junk; Optimize, 384 issues to resolve; and Protect, 362 security issues. Instead of log files, WinOptimizer's scan results describe each category and how it … Read more

Review: IOBit Uninstaller 3

Pros

Useful organization: Uninstaller categorizes your installed apps into several tiers: Recently installed, Large programs, Infrequently used, and Windows Updates. These are often the main criteria that most users would follow to justify removing apps.

Batch uninstallation: You can queue up uninstallations for multiple applications, something glaringly absent from the traditional Windows control panel. Though it's not an automated procedure, nor is it a simultaneous uninstaller, the Batch Uninstaller works as listed and is one of the most useful features of IOBit Uninstaller 3.

Cons

Not in real time: If IOBit Uninstaller is currently running and you install a … Read more
