Ashampoo WinOptimizer 10 Editor's Review

When you buy a new PC for home or office usage, the sheer speed is what catches attention and makes you happy. Apps load lightening fast, the boot up and shutdown is quick and nearly everything you throw at it, gets done without lag. However, things change as you keep using the computer for some time. You will find the startup time has lengthened and apps do not load that fast after a time. You notice the lag even more when you make the PC multitask. While windows utilities like Disc defragmenter and Disk cleanup can help resolve this issue to an extent, they may not be enough. You may benefit greatly by using a suitable third party tune up utility. Ashampoo WinOptimizer can be an ideal contender for such needs.

Ashampoo WinOptimizer has modest system requirements and needs barely 90 MB space on your PC’s hard disk. The multilingual app runs on PCs equipped with Windows XP and later OSs. While the company website does not mention specific RAM needs, it will run on PCs that have aforesaid operating systems installed. The installer size is equivalent to other similar programs and so is the licensing cost. The installation process is not tedious and it does not take up much time either. However, it prompts you to enable an automated cleaning schedule to keep the PC running optimally at all times.

Upon launching the app, you get an interface, segregated into 5 sections. These are Overview, Modules, Backups, Favorites and Statistics. The app layout is quite user friendly. For users who prefer simplicity of operation, Ashampoo has provided a useful single-click clean-up option. However, users who love tinkering with app settings will not be disappointed either. It also offers a task scheduler and backup manager.

As far as cleanup and system tweaking performance is concerned, Ashampoo WinOptimizer may not be the best performing tool, but it will suit the need of most users nevertheless. In synthetic benchmarks like Geekbench, it trails behind rivals like Iolo System Mechanic. However, the app reduces boot time and apps load faster after you run the cleanup wizards. Apart from cleaning up temporary files from your hard disk, it also clears clutters gathered during web browsing. There is a tool for fine tuning Windows registry as well. The nice thing is that you can decide web data cleanup method for individual browsers.

While the app does free up disk space but when you delete temporary files and redundant data, they are not sent to recycle bin by default. This can be altered though. You can also make changes to settings to exclude certain folders and areas in hard disk that will not be used by the software. If changing a setting leads to adverse effects on system or causes slowdown, that can be resolved by reverting to application default settings at all times. Windows 8 users can modify boot sequence using this app. Customization options are there for Windows Explorer and accessories like mouse and keyboard.

Apart from tweaking the PC to enhance performance and speed, Ashampoo WinOptimizer also comes with options to monitor condition of hardware components like hard disk. There is a bundled utility named Disk Doctor and another named HDD Inspector. The former checks disks for potential errors while the latter monitors S.M.A.R.T. attributes. The application also includes a font management utility. Other useful features include File Wiper that shred files permanently and Undeleter which attempts to recover files deleted by mistake. However, there are tools like Uninstaller that does not perform any better than Windows bundled utility.

There is one potential drawback in this app that may deter some users, especially those with more than one PC at home or with a small home network. The price is not much but you get a single user license. Rivals like Comodo System Utilities and Iolo System Mechanic Professional allow software installation on multiple computers.

Positive Points:
 - Wide operating system and language support.
 - Visible system speed and performance boost.
 - Useful tweaking tools and one click cleanup options.
 - Intuitive interface, low learning curve.

Negative Points:
 - Lacks unlimited PC installation unlike rival apps.
 - Tools like uninstaller are not better than Windows utility.

Conclusion:
Ashampoo WinOptimizer, in its latest version, offers useful tools and impressive performance overall. The system requirement is decent and user interface is really intuitive. It has enough tools in its arsenal for good PC performance tune up for all types of users. Users with a single PC will find it appealing. However, its lack of multiple PC licensing does give the competitors some edge.

Rating: 4/5
