"Cleans up the PC and has an auto-cleanup feature: nice."

July 03, 2011  |  By leroilightning

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 8 8.05

Pros

- cleans up various areas of the PC
- various settings you can tweak
- Auto tuner - cleans in the background
- one-time price (not yearly like some products)

Cons

- you need to buy any major upgrade when it comes out (or keep the current, latest version)
- not updated as frequently as say iobit's Advanced System Care

Summary

I like it. It does its job, has a nice interface and you can set it to clean or not clean what you like (of the available options).

"Another great product by Ashampoo! Great Utility!"

June 29, 2011  |  By MatrixLeader

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 8 8.05

Pros

It has a disc cleaner, registry cleaner, internet optimizer and services optimizer to speed up your computer easily!

Cons

When it makes suggestions to disable something like the Windows Media Player stuff, it does not offer a once click button to do that for you, you will have to manually and do the recommended settings yourself.

Summary

Great all in one tool that saves you a big hassle from doing all the above said tasks manually. Easy to use for computer n00bies and pros :)

June 28, 2011  |  By Kirk Bubul

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 8 8.05

Pros

It cleaned out my 18-month-old Windows 7 Home Premium Registry enough to decrease my shutdown time from 105 seconds to 20 seconds.

Cons

None that I've encountered yet.

Why does Cnet keep harassing me about a product that I've already reviewed?

Updated on Jun 30, 2011

This is the THIRD completed request for a review of this product. I reviewed it positively the first time. I have no idea why Cnet can't get its act together and keep harassing me about redundant reviews.

"Nice product"

June 04, 2011  |  By ktower

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 8 8.05

Pros

After using it I actually noticed a difference in my machine. I cannot say that for a lot of other products out there.

Cons

None yet accept my own fault with letting it install a tool bar, but that was only a 1 minute fix.

Summary

Good product. Too bad some out there felt misled. Your low ratings seem to be about your own hasty decision when you see the word "free" and not the actual product.

"Works well, sped things up ok."

May 28, 2011  |  By thughes--2008

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 8 8.05

Pros

Sped things up, computer started working at an acceptable pace.
Vista has always been a rubbish system that controls the way it is used so other than changing to another system this helps.

Cons

Haven't found any.

Summary

I your computer is working like rubbish this will only improve it. It is a lot better than having to rebuild the whole thing and start afresh.
