Editors' Review

Ashampoo WinOptimizer 2014 lets beginners and experts benefit from its PC tweaks, deep cleaning, and protection. This freeware is suitable for Windows XP to 8.

WinOptimizer's setup process asks if your system boots from an SSD or HDD. We selected SSD, which deactivated the Hibernation and Windows Search/Indexing options, leaving only the option to delete old backups. WinOptimizer's initial scan found issues in all three of its primary features: Clean, 1GB of junk; Optimize, 384 issues to resolve; and Protect, 362 security issues. Instead of log files, WinOptimizer's scan results describe each category and how it affects Windows. Advanced users can still view log files, but less-experienced users will definitely welcome WinOptimizer's no-nonsense descriptions of what it does and why. We clicked "Fix Now," and WinOptimizer quickly processed each category, starting with Protect, then Optimize and finally Clean. We were surprised no reboot was required. To verify WinOptimizer had done no harm, we rebooted anyway and were pleased to see our PC boot fast, safe, and clean. WinOptimizer also boasts backups, password protection, and tools ranging from System Benchmarking to File Wiper to Encryption and Decryption.

WinOptimizer 2014 wins our strong approval by delivering expert system tweaks, maintenance, and protection to users of every skill level. With its extensive collection of extra system tools, it has something for everyone.

"No problem with my installation."

December 17, 2014  |  By doneryal01

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 2014 1.0

Pros

I'd say the program works well and I've not had problems. It is a pretty complete system.

Cons

Attention is required during the quick installation. Always select Custom Installation for downloads of Free or low cost software. You won't get unwanted add-ons that way..

"Comes with unwanted Add-on"

April 30, 2014  |  By firekat47

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 2014 1.0

Pros

none my ccleaner does better.

Cons

Do not down load this app. When you do you get search-conduit as your default start page and search engine. If you already have, the only way to get rid of it is find search protect in programs and uninstall it. Then you have to change your home page back to what you want in Foxfire,Chrome,etc.

Summary

DO NOT DOWN LOAD!

"Best free optimizer"

April 29, 2014  |  By Miss_Applebyy

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 2014 1.0

Pros

It is Free!
Speeded my system up
Simple to use

Cons

None that I have found so far.

Summary

The BEST free optimizer. Better than Glary Utilities and much more better than Advanced System Care and CCleaner.

"Doesn't seem to make much difference."

October 19, 2013  |  By dliberman

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 2013 1.0

Pros

Easy to install.

Cons

Doesn't seem to help my performance.

Summary

Installed this with no trouble. But it essentially became a disk cleanup utility. I used the Service manager and process manager and both essentially said not to do anything. There appears to be no real tie optimization going on so I'm not really sure what I'm getting here.

"Very good all in one"

April 12, 2013  |  By kvnfl

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 2013 1.0

Pros

"Modules" tab has a ton of valuable tools to tune Windows and Hardware. Most notable, and take notice, is "Proactive Defrag" as part of "Defrag 3". It defrags the HDD when the computer is idle so you never have to defrag again. AND IT WORKS!

Cons

You have to register it and Ashampoo sends a spam a day. (Use a disposable email add.) Defrag 3 is not as fast Auslogics. Registry cleaner is not as complete as Glary Utilities.

Summary

Get it for "Proactive Defrag".

"Great all-in-one solution"

February 20, 2013  |  By 1dustpelt

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 2012 8.1.4

Pros

-Free! It is hard to find a product as extensive as this.
-Vast collection of useful tools
-Can tweak many settings
-Cleans quick and efficiently
-Registry cleaner has backup

Cons

This is the old version of Ashampoo Winoptimizer 9, which costs money. They made the old version free. Overall, it is a great product, but the new paid version has a bit more features.

Summary

If you are looking for a quick, free, easy to use program, then this is for you.

"Great help to me"

August 09, 2012  |  By offerPop6399692

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 2012 8.1.4

Pros

Speeded my system up when the system was starting to need updating and I do not have the funds to update at the moment.
Simple to use without having to be a Computer Geek.

Cons

None that I have found so far.

Summary

For me personally it has been of great help and I would not be without WinOptimizer 2012 well at least uhtil the next version comes out which I will no doubt try out top compare and hopefully there will be even more useful tools although at the moment I cannot think of any.
Thank you all at Ashampoo

Pros

NONE NONE NONE

Cons

Took over system without requesting. I Immediately removed it & every reference to Conduit

The old version wasn't intrusive sending you to Conduit with every attempt to remove it. I loved the old version, but have recommended to one & all to stay away from this product
