Editors' Review

+
Keeping your car running like a champ requires a bit of maintenance now and again. When that time arises, you want to take your beloved to a mechanic you trust. The same holds for your computer. You'll want to use a trusted maintenance/optimization suite, one that has done you right in the past and kept your OS healthy. Enter Ashampoo WinOptimizer Platinum Suite. With a gorgeous interface and the simple One-Click Optimization feature, WinOptimizer expands on its already good reputation with an eye-catching product.

WinOptimizer offers Drive Cleaner, Registry Cleaner, Internet Cleaner, Internet Tuner, File Associator, DLL Cleaner, File Wiper, and Start-Up Tuner. Each of the eight tools features a metallic interface, a nice overview, a warning where applicable, and a large Start button. WinOptimizer safeguards dangerous tools such as Registry Cleaner and DLL Cleaner by flagging only items that can be deleted safely. One-Click Optimization is the safest bet for a quick checkup, running all the tools in one swoop. Novice users will appreciate the ease of use while pro users will find plenty of ways to get their hands dirty.

"That good I'm on 2007 already!"

October 31, 2006  |  By custom built

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer Platinum 3.3

Pros

The product is so easy to use a monkey could operate it. It has the option of a 'One click optimisation' which runs in safe mode and does all the work for you, what more could you want as a novice user...just great.

For more advanced users it allows you to configure your settings how you like them and always shows you what files you are getting rid of, so you can opt not to remove files if you so choose. All in all a great little program for the money and worth every penny.(As with all Ashampoo products, the price is just right, and gives you fantastic value.)

Cons

Con's... on this particular product...NONE that I can find, and I have been using it for over 3 years.

Give it a try, it's free, and make up your own mind's.

"It was good."

January 14, 2007  |  By cooldude7982

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer Platinum 3.3

Pros

Well I only downloaded it for the trial version. I ran the registry cleaner first thing and I had a LOT of stuff that needed to be cleaned. I'm not talking about 50, 200, 0r 500. I'm talking about over 1,000! I made sure I made a restore point first. But nothing seems to not be working. The one click feature is awesome. After using that I saw a great increase of speed in my computer.

Cons

Well I downloaded for the trial version. But they wouldnt accept my e-mail to get the trial key to extend my trial period.

"Great program"

January 14, 2007  |  By attmayMB61489

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer Platinum 3.3

Pros

Pretty much what everyone else says. It is an awesome program that has it all. I have had the same luck with other programs, but this one was better for the price.

"Excellent software"

December 12, 2006  |  By johnny5alv

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer Platinum 3.3

Pros

There are so many software titles out there that do this sort of thing.. I've tried a few but I always come back to Ashampoo. This is the one I rely on.

Cons

Doesn't do EVERYTHING.. But hey, what software does.

"Just one more"

November 24, 2006  |  By chtrummer

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer Platinum 3.3

Pros

All-in-One for lazy people

Cons

If you need to clean your registry, you need a a proper software, e.g. Registry Mechanic.

The other features of this multi- optimizing and diagnostic tool are offered by a number of other providers, in some cases working more efficiently and in some even free of charge.

After having compared it to a number of other Diagnostic and Optimizing tools, I must cleary make a point here: This product does not deserve the name "PLATINUM"!

"Bad news for any computer"

November 23, 2006  |  By Morny5

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer Platinum 3.3

Pros

Easy to use

Cons

I had problems with my PC freezing and it also messed up my anti-virus software, which in turn disabled itself and went offline. After I formatted my hard drive I realised it was Ashampoo when I re-installed it. I soon removed it completely from my computer. I will be writing to the company concerned.

"Good for certain things."

November 19, 2006  |  By UM Canes

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer Platinum 3.3

Pros

Clean interface. Easy to use with two levels to choose from. Can be purchased for $10.000 if you wait for "Ashampoo" to email you the offer. At that price it becomes a must have. I like it much better than their firewall and anti virus. Decent tuning tool.

Cons

I guess I'm just not a big fan of this vendor. Over agressive sales tactics and poor customer support after purchase. Try to buy software @ 75% off thru most venders and "NO" will be the answer. Of coures for fans of "Ashampoo" that would be a huge plus.

"Easy to use and keep computer operating efficiently- takes a couple of minutes"

November 16, 2006  |  By dwrci

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer Platinum 3.3

Pros

1 click optimisation means simple cleansing of windows system. Use of easy mode does not require any detailed knowledge and the expert mode is reasonably easy to use.

Cons

Think that the defrag tool is duplication of facility already on windows so a bit of a wasted facility

"A very good application is now even better"

November 15, 2006  |  By Moggly Flinchly

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer Platinum 3.3

Pros

As with almost all Ashampoo products, the user friendly nature of the software is a highlight. The extra features included in this newest version make an upgrade well worthwhile.Even little things like the new skins that are released from time to time add variety and help make the programme fun to use but at the same time it usefully cleans up those corners of Windows that often get overlooked and ultimately clog things up. If you don't regularly delve into Windows in order to apply some housekeeping, then this programme is for you.

Cons

Unless you know exactly what you are doing, then it is probably best to leave the setting in 'easy' mode.
