Editors' Review


In our duties reviewing software for 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.

"Not free and doesn't work."

None - this has no redeeming qualities whatsoever.


- Installs unnecessary hardware which does nothing to improve performance.
- Once you run the diagnostic scan, you not only have to upgrade to the Pro version, but you have to PAY TO DO SO!
- Even after uninstalling, malware, adware, and popups still linger.


Don't be fooled by CNET's 5-star rating. This will not improve your performance, especially if you have an older Windows OS.

Even as I type this review, clicking in each individual box triggers a flurry of pop-ups.

I'd give this no stars if I could, but since you require some rating...0.5/5.
