Ashampoo Winoptimizer?

  version8 18:05 19 Sep 2008

Anyone used it as a well known pc publication is offering it free as a full edition!
Only have to download it & get a registration key by email and it's 100% free!

Yes, I've come across these free programs that are offered from time to time & use some of them regularly.

However, I've not tried this particular one. I find the best way to 'optimise' one's PC is to do it manually - this way one can usually do a better job & learn a thing or ten ;-), G

Yes, and it's just as good as any other tune-up program. Does what it says without any problems on my Vista pc.

Also, try Ashampoo's disk defragger, it sits in the system tray and only starts defragging when it detects the machine is idle.

I've never met a problem with any of Ashampoo's offerings.

Hope you get on o.k. with them.

Be aware though that Ashampoo's idea of Marketing is to spam you with offers everyday, sometimes several times a day. Use a throwaway email account for any registration.

smokingbeagle, in my experience it's never been so bad - & especially if one does what I've mentioned below.

If you go into your Ashampoo account, you can deselect these offer emails. Make an account if you don't have one already, & do this. I've got about 5 free products registered with them & get about 1 email a month. G

Great stuff Ashampoo. Never had any problems whatsoever.

Downloaded it the other day, and at present running tests and comparing it with similar programs like Advance Window Care 2 and Tune-Up Utility.

Seems a good program,not had any problems so far, but I must say that most Ashampoo programs rate very good with me. Testing and running a number of their downloads on various machines.

Ashampoo has some great burning programs. Overall a good company.
These 'optimising' programs, though, are they really needed? Played around with some and the actual optimising is, in my opinion, negligible.
