Everyday junk files are created by different applications on our PC’s, some of which never get deleted and keep gathering and filling up space on our system. This eventually results in performance degradation of the PC, and it starts to lag more than often. Keeping your system clean and in the best condition, one needs to take care of it on regular basis.

Ashampoo WinOptimizer 14 is a reliable software application that comes with a plethora of tools and features all aimed at boosting your system performance, and keeping it in a healthy state. The application does lag here and there, but the features it offers definitely worth-tying.
I am usually reluctant to use such programs as years ago a different company’s program completely messed up my machine. However, my laptop has gotten very sluggish and I trust Ashampoo so I thought I’d give this a try.
Using the Windows 10 System Restore, I first did a back-up. Then I clicked on the button in this program and held my breath! I looked through the items tagged as problematic and all seemed okay to lose so I just let it clean them all.
I have to say, the effect is quite noticeable. Startup seemed quicker, as does opening up programs and even the internet with Firefox.
I would recommend trying this program if you are having similar problems to mine. And be sure to do a back-up beforehand, just in case.
Giving 4 stars not 5 because when I first deselected some items in the problem list and ran cleaner, it was unclear what happened and wanted me to run it again. Secondly, it stated that one of the problem items deleted would require a restart but never instructed me to do that afterwards.
Thank you Ashampoo and, as always, the SOS team.
WinOptimizer has always being my best PC optimization tool over time. It offers a perfect user interface, powerful repair tools and impressive automation. With every iteration, Ashampoo manages to throw in additional features that will definitely keep any PC enthusiast hooked.
WinOptimizer 11 features a new user interface with well-organized tool box that will not only remind you of your favorite tools but also group everything else in an easy to remember way. Couple this with the automated scan and fixes and a Hard Doctor and you get another amazing optimization tool that will help turbocharge your PC to perfection.
That’s how good it should be on paper. But just how good is it on a PC. Here is what I found out
A neat user interface that works
WinOptimizer 11 features a clean modern UI that is not only pleasant to use but also less intimidating. Everything looks professional and reliable. The organization and professionalism not only allowed me to find and use whatever I wanted but also made me feel good and confident about whatever I was doing.
Powerful and clever optimization tools
This application will go over the optimization business with utter finesse and reliability. You can choose to run an automated scan and fix or monitor whatever goes on. The optimization wizard will help you delete junk files and streamline the startup manager to keep your machine working optimally. There is also a process manager that will suggest what unnecessary processes you should quit to boost performance. It helps you boost you PC by actually telling you what to do and why to do it.
Diagnostics and benchmarking
When I first installed the system, it ran a quick scan of the hardware, software and drivers before giving me suggestions on what to do to improve my PC health. If you are the competitive type, you could post your results on Facebook and compete against your friends, maybe.
Additional cool tools that actually work
Ashampoo threw in a ton of other tools that will come in handy when managing your PC. There is the Uninstall Manager that ensures that you run a clean uninstall for any unwanted programs, an Undo Delete module that recovers recently uninstalled software, a Hard Drive Doctor to scan and maintain the health of your hard drive and an Internet Cleaner to take care of the junk you gather online.
You won’t get a registry cleaner
I always want a registry cleaner on my PC optimization tool. There is so much you can do performance-wise by tweaking the Windows OS registry. Ashampoo thinks toying with your registry is too dangerous and didn’t include a registry editor or cleaner. They might be right, they might be wrong.
WinOptimizer is perhaps the best Windows PC optimization tool on the market right now. This shareware version is definitely a great deal to both the professional and the beginner.

Windows 10 not listed as supported for this version! Why not?
I am sorry, but I think you made a couple of false statements here, Denis.
Firstly, this application includes registry cleaner, but to find it you have to familiarize yourself with the modules and locate the module that performs this function.
Secondly, Ashampoo’s view on registry cleaning, which is presented in their help file, totally contradicts your statement that the Developer is against using registry cleaners.
Your “review” then is not totally accurate.
To be fair though, I find most of your reviews to be spot on, and I think you deserve a lot of credit for your work.
Just my 2 cents.
There is a registry cleaner module in WinOptimizer but as you indicated there is no editor.
I noticed that you are reviewing Ashampoo WinOptimizer 11, instead of Ashampoo WinOptimizer 12
To Dennis Nelson:
I believe your review is too old. You state:
“Ashampoo thinks toying with your registry is too dangerous and didn’t include a registry editor or cleaner. They might be right, they might be wrong.”
I think your statement is wrong. They do not include a Registry Editor but they do include a Registry Optimizer, and its function shows “Clean the Registry.” The option is available under the “Maintain System” section accessed through the 3rd icon on the left menu (broom symbol).
They also include a Registry Optimizer in the Tools section of their Uninstaller product.
In case I am misunderstanding you, are you referring to a different feature?
