Ashampoo WinOptimizer is intended to increase the performance of your Windows operating system. The application has a nicely designed interface that facilitates navigating through its multiple modules. While it is true that many inexperienced users will feel confused with the names of these modules, they will also get a brief explanation about their procedures and effects on system performance. Moreover, there is also a one-click optimizer that will automatically carry out the most important system checkups. If you do not feel comfortable letting the program do everything for you, you can use the confirmation mode, which lets you decide on the changes to make.
As said above, the application includes many modules covering practically every aspect that affects your computer’s performance. These modules belong to different groups: Maintain System, Improve Performance, Customize Windows, Analyze System, File Tools and General. The Registry Optimizer module, for instance, can scan your Registry to find errors. Unfortunately, unlike similar programs, this one does not offer the user to create a backup copy of the Registry just in case something goes wrong. The Defrag module is a disk defragmentation tool to speed up the access to the data contained on your disks. There is also Internet Cleaner to protect your privacy by erasing navigation history and stored cookies. Moreover, the Driver Cleaner can find redundant files on your drives thus saving precious storage space. Unfortunately, while I was testing this feature, I tried to stop its operation but it did not respond. Another attractive module is System Benchmark, which can determine the speed of your system. The list of modules will be too long to mention here; just for you to have an idea, the application also includes File Associator, Disk Space Explorer, File Wiper, Undeleter and Duplicate Finder.
In general, Ashampoo WinOptimizer is an excellent and versatile application that enables you to optimize and keep your system in perfect shape.
