"Better of using a sledgehammer to optimize."

July 11, 2015  |  By sinshenron

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 12 12.00.10

Pros

zero, none, zilch, nothing, unless you like getting royally screwed over.

Cons

I cannot say enough bad things...give this to people you really dislike as a Christmas present to wreck their programs and computer.

Summary

This program disabled several programs and hardware. My printer had to have the software reinstalled, my ps2 emulator was disabled, windows no longer associated torrent files with my bit torrent program, certain files where no longer associated with their proper programs..aka iso files with power iso, flac files with the vlc player and so on..this program did more harm than anything I have ever experienced with with any malware,virus,etc. I suggest they supply it to isis for free...it would ruin their computers and set them back a lot...a whole lot.

"WISH it could be rated LESS than 1 star. :("

April 29, 2015  |  By ganerd

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 11 11.0.60

Pros

Easy to download and install. Big CLAIMS, like candy tempting a child :(

Cons

Fraudulent Claims = Fraudulent Company
ADVERTISED as FREE yet behaved as trial version.
CLAIMS; WinOptimizer more UNOptimizer
Name should be changed to WinCrasher

Summary

A person or company is ONLY as good as their word. SO, if they will lie about ONE thing they will lie about ANYTHING! That eaves me wondering just WHAT damage, spy-ware or virus have they left in my system?

"The best defragmenter and the best drive cleaner"

April 24, 2015  |  By Parpaluck

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 11 11.0.60

Pros

The best defragmenter and the best drive cleaner

Cons

It is free now, while I paid for since version 7!

Summary

Ashampoo has the best defragmenter, clearly better than Windows Defrag. Ashampoo also defragments free disk space.

The software package also has the most thorough disk cleaner. It cleans safely many more files than Drive Clean in Windows.

I like also the Registry Defragment in Ashampoo.

The package has many more functions, but nothing to write home about.

Otherwise I stay clear of those "computer utilities" out there. Most of them make you waste a lot of time for nothing. And that's the best case-scenario. Think of the "driver updaters" that tell you again and again that your drivers are outdated. You check in Windows Device Manager and discover that the drivers were not updated! Windows probably rolled them back. The OS tells you that a particular driver is up to date and in the best version!

Pros

Many tools and options
Can undo SOME changes if they cause issues

Cons

Ran the delete tool on an external drive only and it wiped my C drive!!!
Ran registry optimizer and it corrupted links to many file extensions.
Made a number of unwanted system setting changes.

Just purchased ver.11 and everything I tried caused issues and had to be undo.
I had to restore my OS hard drive from a Norton Ghost backup after trying the delete tool on an external drive.

"ashampoo winoptimizer 10"

October 03, 2013  |  By davidcopafeel

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 10 10.2.5

Pros

the program is great

Cons

the support is the worst. emails back and forth to transfer my program to my new computer and this went on for 6 days good thing it wasn't my antivirus. meanwhile I had 5 other programs switch over the same day if the new licence didn't work i'd talk to a tech on this thing they call a phone .but ashampoo don't have a phone with tech support that could remotely go on your computer to fix things up for you. instead I was offered my money back. i don't want the money I want the program. when you find a good thing you don't want to give it up.

Summary

so over all ashampoo has lost my future business. if the support is that bad with no phone number. it's a shame.

"Noticeable improvement in the GUI"

May 31, 2013  |  By Randy Bell

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 10 10.2.5

Pros

the Graphical Interface (GUI) is more attractive and intuitive than before. Some convenient features, such as the System Restore Point Manager, have been added.

Cons

it takes a little more work to see the details of what is being cleaned - in the registry, temp-files, etc. But that is minor.

Summary

This can be used as a standalone optimization and cleaning tool - or in conjunction with other like tools. The System Restore Point Manager, that addition I have found quite useful. It will even delete the most recent Restore Point - which normally is greyed out and undeletable in CCleaner and similar utilities. The modules from past versions of Win-Optimizer are continued in this new version. The optimization speed seems noticeably improved. The Live-Tuner feature is more intuitive in this interface; and very easy to turn on and off. Defragmentation can be manual or proactive. The proactive feature works very well and eliminates the need for other defragmentation tools if the user so wishes. Highly recommend this new version of the popular utility suite published by Ashampoo.
