Although Windows operating system has undergone significant improvements over the years, your PC is still bound to collect digital garbage as you keep using it. It is, therefore, important to have a good tool for performing regular housecleaning. Based on Windows optimization experience spanning 11 years, Ashampoo WinOptimizer FREE will ensure that you have a cleaner, faster and more reliable system. Describing the software as a tool is an understatement; it is actually a tool-box that provides many utilities for configuring and tuning PCs.

Using Ashampoo WinOptimizer FREE

The program's interface supported more than 20 languages, and we selected our desired language during installation. Like other Ashampoo products, we received a free activation key by providing our e-mail address. The key was displayed when it was already selected; we just needed to copy it to the Clipboard by pressing Ctrl+C, and the installation window had a button that allowed us to directly paste the key from the Clipboard.

The software featured four tabs respectively named Overview, Modules, Backups and Favorites. By default, the program opened the Overview tab when we launched it, but we could choose to jump directly to the Modules page by marking the check box on the lower left corner of the user interface.

The Overview page gave us the option to start either a quick or full scan. Once the software had performed the chosen scan, we could start the optimization process based on the recommendations it found.

Ashampoo WinOptimizer FREE grouped the errors into various categories like Startup Tuner, Tweaking, Internet Cleaner, Registry Optimizer and Drive Cleaner. It displayed the number of errors found on the right side of each category, and expanding a category displayed more information about the errors. Each recommendation had a check box for selecting to either optimize or leave it. All the recommendations were selected by default.

The Modules tab gave us access to various tools for performing different tasks, including cleaning up the system, optimizing performance, enhancing privacy and security, tuning system settings, performing diagnosis and providing information. The software even integrated file tools for examining and restoring deleted files as well as splitting and joining files.

The program automatically backed up our system, and we could undo the changes we made from the Backups tab. The Favorites tab gave us quick access to the modules we used frequently.

When we were on any of the three pages apart from the Overview page, the user interface displayed a 'One-Click Optimizer' button. We needed to choose the operating mode the first time we used the feature. The default mode was to search and delete without confirmation, but we changed it to search and delete after confirmation.

Conclusion

Ashampoo WinOptimizer FREE is a comprehensive program for restoring the performance of Windows system to its original state. It provides many tools for optimizing your computer. The program is generally user-friendly, but some of the tools require advanced skills. For example, you should never make changes to the registry unless you are sure of what you are doing.
