WinUtilities Free Edition collects system, disk, and Registry cleaners and optimizers in a single interface that gives you easy access to tools that are scattered throughout Windows. You can set One-Click Maintenance to run on a schedule and can customize it by unchecking options.
Clear UI: WinUtilities groups tools by function, such as Clean Up & Repair, Optimize & Improve, Privacy & Security, and Files & Folders, so you can easily find the tools you want to run.
Many helpful utilities: The BHO Remover identifies browser helper objects and lets you remove them with a click. The Context Menu Manager configures right-click menus in Windows. The EXE Protector prevents unauthorized running of executables. If you make a mistake in changing or cleaning your Registry, WinUtilities' Registry Backup & Restore can salvage it.
Windows standard tools: WinUtilities centralizes access to some built-in Windows diagnostic and configuration tools that can be hard to find, including RegEdit, the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, the Computer Management console, and System Configuration.
SSD defrag: WinUtilities's Disk Defrag tool included our solid-state drive (SSD) and did not show a warning, but SSDs shouldn't be defragmented -- the process doesn't help and can hurt.
WinUtilities Free Edition collects utilities and Windows system tools in one convenient interface, making it a useful first stop when something needs fixing. Its cleaning, repair, and protection tools help keep your system free from trouble, too.

What's new in this version:
Version 13.19 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
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.
The program removed all my registry entries and errors. As well as my old shortcuts that didn't work. The program came with a Uninstall manager and disk cleaner. The program worked flawlessly. Would recommend to anyone to use.
We should perform WinUtilities regularly in order to keep your computer in top-notch shape. Since doing all the related tasks manually can be a real hassle, we can opt for one of the many software solutions that can help you in this regard.
WinUtilities Professional Edition is one of the names on the list and it seems to include exactly the things you'll need when trying to clean up the PC and optimize it for the best performance.
The application has an rather nice looking interface, with every feature neatly organized. Clicking on each of them opens a new window in which you're prompted to select the drives or the elements you wish to be scanned either for fixing issues or for improving certain settings.
WinUtilities Professional Edition is also capable of optimizing the system for greater performance, enhancing privacy and security, controlling windows and folders, working with the Windows registry and scheduling tasks.
