Editors' Review

+

In our duties reviewing software for Download.com we install and uninstall a lot of programs. As we're sure you can imagine, this creates a bit of a mess on our PC. Many programs leave files behind when they're uninstalled, and since we're constantly downloading and deleting things, we end up with a lot of invalid shortcuts, broken registry entries, etc. For this very reason, we were excited about trying WinUtilities Free Edition, a suite of tools designed to free up disk space and improve system performance. We were quite pleased with the program's results.

Some of what WinUtilities does--disk defragmenting and cleanup, for example--can be accomplished using the System Tools that come with Windows. But we liked the way the program combined these and other functions into one clean, intuitive interface, making all of the most useful Windows maintenance utilities easy to access. The program contains a full complement of features to help you manage your computer's performance and security, including a file shredder, duplicate file finder, task scheduler, and much more. The program's One-Click Maintenance feature allows users to run a variety of customizable buttons with the click of a single button. The program's built-in Help file is well written and thorough. Overall, we were quite impressed with WinUtilities, and we think it's a great tool for keeping your system in good shape and free of performance-hindering junk.

WinUtilities Free Edition is free. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We highly recommend this program to all users.

"A free way to keep your computer in tune."

November 05, 2010  |  By weaverrr

 |  Version: WinUtilities Free Edition 9.9

Pros

I like the variety of tools that are available at one place to keep the computer performing at top level. I like the fact that it is free.

Cons

You must buy the version that allows you to schedule the running of the program. However, a little discipline like running it at the same time each week makes scheduling quite unnecessary

Summary

It includes all of the Windows tools plus many more that will keep your computer functioning properly. It is very easy to use. There is a ONE-BUTTON execution for the major tools.

"absolutely amazing!"

November 01, 2010  |  By jbenton56

 |  Version: WinUtilities Free Edition 9.9

Pros

One stop (free) shopping for a set of extremely effective, and very easy to use, utilities that outshines a whole range of highly regarded programs that you would pay $30 - $50 for.

Cons

Nothing to complain about.

Summary

Recommend you try the free version of WinUtilities BEFORE you spend your hard earned money on anything else. I've paid for and used Registry Booster, Registry Mechanic, and others, and WinUtilities outperformed them.
