Editors' Review

+

It requires very little skill to use this system cleanup tool, but that's not necessarily a good thing when you're dealing with the Registry. Ashampoo Magical Optimizer is so easy to use because it removes most of the control from the user.

The colorful interface gives you the option of automatic or manual optimization. What you won't find is a way to back up your files beforehand. This safety net is a standard feature for most Registry cleaners, and one we want in place before any files get deleted. You can select the kinds of files you want to include in the scanning process, but from there the program scans and deletes on its own. You can't retrieve files the program accidentally picks up, and with no backup, you may be in for an unpleasant surprise the next time you try to run the program needing that file. We didn't experience any problems as we put the program through its paces, and it was fast to scan and delete files, but we were nervous about leaving everything up to the program to decide.

Ashampoo Magical Optimizer comes with a 10-day trial period that can be extended to 40 days if you're willing to give them your e-mail address. While we're all for simplicity, we prefer a Registry tool that gives users more say in the process, and we're reluctant to recommend a program without basic safeguards in place.

"You avoid to waste time to understand the terrible o.s."

April 20, 2011  |  By ermete22

 |  Version: Ashampoo Magical Optimizer 1.22

Pros

It works well. OK: maybe you take some risk as the control on what it cancells is rather loose. But if you need the computer to do other activities that mantaining its system, this software is perfect.

Cons

Every time it starts you hope your computer will not stop woking, but it's much better than wasting your time to study the demential complications of Microsoft O.S. (my is W7 (64)

Summary

FOR PEOPLE USING PC TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT THAN UNDERSTANDING HOW AND WHY IT WORKS

"Not my cup of tea !"

April 07, 2011  |  By jim_zaker

 |  Version: Ashampoo Magical Optimizer 1.22

Pros

I did not give it a chance to see the pros.

Cons

I was not aware that it did its work automatically!
I stopped the program as soon as I noticed it
was running wild !

Summary

Perhaps I should have read the editors review more thoroughly,
or the fact that it runs automatically as soon as its started.
I did not like this program.
