Found a bunch of possible problems in its scan and provides what seems to be a simple way to fix things.
For me at least, the recommended fixes did not solve my issues.
I kept having boot-up problems, getting stuck on the welcome screen. I may be wrong but, based on my research I was having this problem because of registry errors. So, I tried WinOptimizer to clean up my registry. It ran a scan for some 30 minutes and found a bunch of errors. I clicked for it to fix them and rebooted OK - once. I then had the boot-up problems again afterward. So, it didn't appear to help my problem, nor did the software seem to speed things up either.
Update process defective, purchased, updated, lost license. To date unable to get problem corrected with support.
The program does an awful lot of work within the registry with no explanation of what is being changed and why. Mass deletion of registry entries makes me a little itchy. Ashmpo seems to have a "just trust us" attitude concerning the product. I have not experienced any problems so far, but i would really like to know more about what is going on under the hood.
This easy-to-use suite of tools for maintaining and optimizing my computer. It keeps my Windows installation free of unnecessary garbage and running smoothly while other computers just get slower and slower. :-)
Automatically cleans out privacy traces,registry data, and analyzes auto-start entries and services for redundant or unnecessary entries.
None that I can see.
This is comparable to Advanced SystemCare 4 by IObit. AShampoo puts out good products at good prices. Excellent, really, and this utility is no exception. The graphical interface (GUI) is very intuitive and easy to read. And the user can click on 'details' to see more information on what this utility is cleaning from your system. Optimizes your running services and auto-start entries. And has many more features under the hood - such as a defrag utility and others.
