    "Good product"

    May 22, 2011  |   By robindj1993

    Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 10 8.05

    Pros

    Everything is good in this suite

    Cons

    None of i can think of

    Summary

    All these one star idiots, give it a bad rating because of the Cnet offer and not for the program itself. Dont listen to it! It's a great program!

    "Pretty good con"

    May 20, 2011  |   By nonno3

    Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 10 8.05

    Pros

    Easy download and install

    Cons

    Fell for C Net's "promo" e-mail for WinOptimizer7 @ "special $$". After installing app was directed to Ashampoo website telling me I could extend my "free trial" (??) for another 30 days.
    I thought promo was for full product (I did pay!) !!

    Summary

    Beware of C Net "specials.

    "Simply perfect It actually does what it is supposed to!"

    May 4, 2011  |   By dafreejohn

    Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 10 8.04

    Pros

    My laptop running on Vista normally took about four to five minutes to completely boot up, so I could surf, no matter what free program I tried. Now, with Ashampoo, it boots up in no more than a minute! I d/led the free trial and later purchased it.

    Cons

    None. I'm not a computer genius, I just wanted to turn on my computer and be able to be online or on Office, as quickly as possible, and this did it!

    Summary

    I've tried many registry repair, disk defragmenters, spy ware eliminators over the years and they end up slowing down my computer instead of speeding it up. This is the only program that actually got the job done. I'm really happy. The one click function is pretty convenient. I run the program every day before turning off my computer.
    Bottom-line: My boot-up time (the time it takes for my computer to load up to be ready to go online,etc.) went from 4-5 minutes to a 1 minute max!
    I love it!

    "It's improved the performance of my 6 year old pc"

    May 3, 2011  |   By dtremblay1949

    Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 10 8.04

    Pros

    Helps make my pc more efficient

    Cons

    it's the billing process - extra charges over and above cost of software. Usually you try before you buy but it seems that I'm having to pay for it over and again, even with a bundle.

    Summary

    I like what it does for my pc in particular. I just wish there was a better way to make you know what you're paying for before you decide to proceed. I am not too crazy about paying for something I don't need.

    "It added stuff to my windows"

    April 29, 2011  |   By tiredwaiting

    Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 10 8.04

    Pros

    Cheap and a little confusing to register

    Cons

    Added a popup window so everytime I looked at something on Ebay or any other internet site it would give a comparison price somewhere else.

    Summary

    I removed it and upgraded my internet security program.

    "Great Program!"

    April 29, 2011  |   By daniel.kuntz

    Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 10 8.04

    Pros

    There are tools in this program that I would never have thought existed. It keeps my computer running in great shape.

    Cons

    It is only a bit hard to navigate, but as with any program, once you get used to it, things run smoothly and predictably.

    Summary

    This is a program well worth the price. It is loaded with tools that will keep your computer from becoming obsolete as computers often do!

    "Inconsistent interface, inconsistent performance."

    April 27, 2011  |   By geonk

    Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 10 8.04

    Pros

    Has an impressive number of features and a well laid out interface (see Cons below). Allow for the adjustment of more configuration items than other computer optimization programs I've used.

    Cons

    An inconsistent interface (see below) makes it annoying to use. Some features are comprehensive, far more so than other software, while others feature are superficial, far less so than other software!

    Summary

    First off, I have a 1920x1200 screen. The inability to increase the font size, which is far too small to begin with, makes this very hard to use. In addition, the font chosen for the interface is terrible. I don't know if it's the font itself, or just poor ClearType settings, but it looks horrible.
    Furthermore, UI itself is inconsistent. Some screens allow you to expand them, so that scroll boxes are easier to read, while others don't. There is NO reason for that inconsistency! While WinOptimizer allows you to configure a large number of system settings, more often than not it doesn't EXPLAIN those settings or, more importantly, what impact the different choices will have, either positive or negative. It's great that there are so many configuration choices, but not explaining them all in detail is inexcusable!
    Finally, while the various features scan for ways to better optimize your system, some features find a lot more optimization settings than other software, while others find far less.

    In then end, I have to say that this software shows great promise, but it is far too inconsistent for me to trust it with my system, while the user interface is far too inconsistent to make it easy to use!

    I would expect that, by Version EIGHT, these inconsistencies would be a thing of the past!!

    Updated on Apr 27, 2011

    I wanted to add another issue with WinOptimizer. If you purchase this software, or any Ashampoo software, for that matter, they will hound you forevermore with email, trying to getting you to buy any other of their dozens of software titles! My suggestions is to unsubscribe to their advertisement emails immediately!

    Summary

    excellent product and havn't had any problems or system anomalies. it finds and removes the thousands of temp internet files and pieces left on your computer. creates a register backup in case any problems do occur. collection of tools is very handy. used the tune up programs without a hitch. delete tool is especially handy removing files that do not show up in add/remove programs or that deny you access for removal. This program does not interfere with any program on my computer as most utilities tend to. bottom line powerfull,unobtrusive, and thorough
