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 true for your computer. You'll want to use a trusted maintenance/optimization suite, one that has done you right in the past and has kept your operating system healthy.

Ashampoo WinOptimizer sports a clean, professional interface. You can go for the One-Click Optimization feature, which runs program at pre-determined settings, or run each of the 22 included tools individually. These are categorized under six groups: Clean up, Optimize, Privacy and security, Tune system settings, Diagnosis, and File tools. Within each category, specific features are listed on the right which makes for an easy two-pane navigation.

In addition to system tweaks, WinOptimizer comes with two skins and can create backups so that any changes can be undone. All of the tools, from the drive cleaner to defragger to the file splitter, ran without a hitch, smoothly and without disrupting other programs, and were effective. Novice users will appreciate the ease of use while pro users will find plenty of ways to get their hands dirty.

"Stable, useful and informative utility."

September 29, 2008  |  By stewart_thompson

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 5.05

Pros

Used for years. Always stable and brings up surprising results. There is more to this software than is immediately obvious. The disk space explorer for example is very handy and it cleans up the debris after a windows update very effectively.

Cons

No negative comments. IIt sits quietly on my machine until required and works well when called upon.

Summary

I like reasonably priced software that loads and runs reliably. This does.

"Software O.K."

September 28, 2008

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 5.05

Pros

Easy to use

Cons

Not Vista 64bit compatible - Gadget needs to get around the Account Control without having to turn it off, and install its self into the Program directory and not the Program(86) directory by default (the gadget then works).

"Easy to use but not for me."

September 28, 2008

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 5.05

Pros

Easy to use

Cons

After the first and only use I had trouble with my computer.

Summary

After running the software the next time I booted up, my computer got so far and then shut down.This happened many times and it took me a long time to sort it out.I had no trouble like this before running the software and will not risk using it again.The main problem seemed to be connected with the McCafee Firewall, which I eventually had to remove to get my PC running again.

"Blistering"

September 20, 2008  |  By Donuttah

 |  Version: Ashampoo WinOptimizer 5.05

Pros

Fast and easy system maintenance. Cool interface

Cons

Needs an overall progress bar. Totally hogs the system when running, but livable with considering the genuine enhancements it provides
