Ashampoo WinOptimizer is my first choice and its our best registry repair and cleaner software, WinOptimizer combines clean, repair and optimization tools with advanced features to speed up and improve the stability of your Windows.

Overview

The user interface is quite friendly. In the Overview section, you can take a look at details of the system, maintenance (auto-start entries, services, unnecessary objects – fixing them is done is a single click), hibernation files, old update backups, but you can also use tuning assistant (it searches for optimization options for your system, based on your preferences) and activate Live-Tuner (so you can monitor CPU and RAM usage).

Pros

With a single click, WinOptimizer’s feature called One Click Optimizer can search your computer for unneeded items, security issues and optimizations that can be made, and then proceed to fix them.

Live Tuner is a basic feature of WinOptimizer since it can boost any running application’s speed. It works in the background and does everything automatically (although you can change its settings from the options menu).

The program can analyze your system and give you detailed information about it, as well as make benchmark tests (and compare results online), view disk space usage, detect issues with your hard disks and let you manage installed fonts.

The file tools included in the toolset give you the power to completely wipe, encrypt, decrypt, split, join and undelete files. In addition, it can also find and remove any existing duplicate files from your computer.

Customizing Windows is possible too, with the help of the several tools included in WinOptimizer such as File Associator, Context Menu Manager, Icon Saver and User-Rights Manager.

Game Booster is a really useful feature for gamers, since it ends all unnecessary Windows processes to free memory and reduce CPU load.

The developers of WinOptimizer have improved the algorithms used in the program and now it is not only faster, but lighter too.

Cons

If you want to use WinOptimizer to its full scale, then you’ll have to spend some time and get familiar with it first.

Conclusions

Ashampoo WinOptimizer is hands down an excellent program and I can feel safe recommending it. As with all utilities of this nature, use it wisely. It can be a blessing if you’re careful, and a bust if you’re not.
