"ASO...It Works...Great Product...However, Be Careful!!!"
Runing Windows XP-Pro, on Dell 8600 Inspiron Notebook, w/Office Pro 2003, IE Browser, 1 Gig of RAM, ZoneAlarm Security Suite, Webroot SpySweeper & Window Washer, Wireless LAN and Bluetooth.
ASO works as it says it will. However, YOU CAN NOT JUST RUN ITS VARIOUS PROGRAMS WITHOUT READING THE HELP/SUGGESTIONS AND CHECKING WHAT IT WANTS TO CLEAN OR DELETE.
For example I ran "System Disk Cleaner" and it also selected a file on my desktop with MP3's and GIF files. It allows you to "deselect" what you don't want to delete. You must check the file path or you may delete information important to you. So take the time to examine what it has selected. This same logic applies to cleaning your registry, etc. YOU DON'T WANT TO DELETE PATHS ESSENTIAL TO BOOTING YOUR SYSTEM.
ASO will also warn you that "if you are not a professional when changing certain settings..DON'T DO IT".
You also need to know a little about your system before using this program. For example...I use a wireless LAN for internet connection. I used the ASO optimization tool for the internet and it decided that I needed to select a proxy before connecting. I had to go into internet options and reset that feature to allow automatic detection. Had I not known what to do I may have assumed that ASO had crashed my internet connection.
There are a lot of features/programs I don't use such as Spyware and E-mail options (they would be redundant). I have other programs to handle those programs (i.e. Webroot SpySweeper & Window Washer and ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite.
Makes certain assumptions about what it's thinks are god optimization settings.
