    "No problem with my installation."

    December 17, 2014  |   By doneryal01

    Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 2015 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 2015 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 2015 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 2015 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.

    "NOT INSTALL IT YET..."

    "Very good all in one"

    April 12, 2013  |   By kvnfl

    Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 2015 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 2015 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 9, 2012  |   By offerPop6399692

    Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 2015 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

    Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 2015 8.1.4

    Pros

    NONE NONE NONE

    Cons

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

    Summary

    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
