"Flawed software - even dangerous"

Absolutely NONE!


I check a hard disk with the defragmenting utility in Windows 10 (64-bit). It reports the disk is 1% fragmented. I check the same disk in Ashampoo. It reports the disk is 12% fragmented.

I defragment the disk with Ashampoo Defrag3. It reports "Defragmenting finished" but it shows 11% fragmented. I refresh the drives and redo the defragmenting. At the end of the process, Ashampoo reports that the drive is 20% fragmented. That's insane!

2) Doing the cleanup operation on the start screen, I realize some important files are deleted. After the cleanup, Windows Defender asks to check my computer every time after I use Ashampoo to clean up! Ashampoo also changes the date in the folder of my Internet Favorites. It is one of the folders I always backup. That folder is always unnecessarily backed up after I do a cleanup in Ashampoo! Not good!


I use the paid version of Ashampoo Win Optimizer14. I sent several reports to the company. Once, they sent me a refund. Last time, two months ago, they acknowledged the flaws in the software were severe. The promised a fix - it has never come!

I will reiterate the comments of two other posters here, 'ganerd' and 'sinshenron':

"Fraudulent Claims = Fraudulent Company"

"Better of using a sledgehammer to optimize."

The devil is in the details. should test software thoroughly? a lot more thoroughly.

Windows, especially version 10 after 1511, has all necessary maintenance tools. They are built-in the operating system. It might take some tweaking for novices to find all the tools, all the time.

The alternative: third-party utilities. At best, such utilities are futile. At worst, ALL third-party utilities can be dangerous.

My verdict (and of most PC users'):
A PC user needs nothing more than Windows to take care of a Windows computer.
