Editors' Review

by   / April 17, 2014

Ashampoo's all-new WinOptimizer 11 packs more tools for cleaning, optimizing, and protecting your Windows PC than its freeware competitors, including WinOptimizer Free. And it has a sophisticated yet easy-to-manage layout with support options that the free system utilities can't match. In addition to regularly scheduled system maintenance and tweaks, WinOptimizer 11 has a One-Click Optimizer, extras like anti-spy protection, and a host of modules. Recent upgrades include Live Tuner 2.0, Game Booster, and User Rights Management.

Pros

Does it all: WinOptimizer 11 has an impressive array of tools and features -- more than other software of its type. It can analyze, maintain, boost, protect, repair, and manage Windows features, system options, and programs.

SSD-friendly: WinOptimizer 11's setup wizard asks if Windows is installed on an SSD instead of a conventional hard drive, since some disk utilities don't apply to SSDs. It's an important distinction that determines WinOptimizer 11's operations.

Modules: WinOptimizer 11's many modules cover everything from the Registry to backups to spyware. They can analyze and benchmark your system, schedule tasks, split and join files, and much more.

Cons

Freeware competition: While it's hardly overpriced, WinOptimizer 11 faces stiff competition from some capable freeware, including a free version of itself.

Bottom Line

WinOptimizer 11 more than matches its purchase price with value and performance. Yes, free tools (or a collection of them) can do much of what it does, but not better and not as conveniently. We've had good experiences with Ashampoo's system tools, both free and premium, and wouldn't hesitate to trust WinOptimizer 11 as the cornerstone of system support, maintenance, and optimization.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Ashampoo WinOptimizer 11. The trial version is limited to 40 days.
