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.

    "Great Program"

    September 10, 2014   |   By twinoak

    Version: WinUtilities Free Edition 11.16

    Pros

    Very easy to use. Cleaned registry and defragged my PC with no problems. Also comes with a free Driver Support program to help update drivers..

    Cons

    The only problem is that is your PC is as messed up as mine was, it will take a while for it to defrag the system.

    Summary

    I would recommend it to anyone
