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.

"Absolutely Awful!"

May 01, 2013  |  By boganj

 |  Version: WinUtilities Free Edition 10.61


None that I could find. It's just a downloaded advertisement.


The free version does nothing. Everything is disabled. This is not a free version, you're just downloading an advertisement. Any company that does this type of thing, I could never trust their software.


Do not bother downloading.

"Not free at all"

April 17, 2013  |  By karimbardee

 |  Version: WinUtilities Free Edition 10.61


I can't find one.


False advertising.


I just needed an app to fix and clean my registry, download it and installed it, after trying to fix my registry it said that my registry have several hundreds faults, when I asked the application to fix these faults, it just said I must upgrade to the pro version ( the non free version). There was no way to get use of this "FREE" application, it is a shame that the editors did not mention that in their praising.
