Having a system optimizer helps a lot in lessening your stress over your computer’s slow performance. Instead of having to hire a technician to solve its issues, a single application can help you fix the software, security, and the hardware. These apps are designed to be quickly used, to be easy even for computer amateurs, and to be very effective in adding speed to your PC. One of the best choices for this is Ashampoo’s WinOptimizer. The program is continuously improved by its developers for bug fixes, for new features, and to make the application capable of detecting more computer issues.

What is Ashampoo WinOptimizer?

The application was created by Ashampoo which is a company based in Germany and founded in 1999. The WinOptimizer is always improved by the company as newer Microsoft and security issues arise to provide the best optimization for users. It is packed with a lot of features for this such as registry optimizers, security system updating, and more. These are all in one simple interface. It is suitable for Windows 7, 8, and 10 which ensures that many computers will be able to use the application. It has a paid version and a free version.


What can Ashampoo WinOptimizer do for your system?


The interface of WinOptimizer is very simple.  The application lists out the different general features at the left side of its main interface. This includes features such as maintaining the system, improving performance, and more. The lack of technical terms such as “optimizers” and “registry” makes the application friendlier for beginners. It uses a blend of blue and black for its design. Compared to other system optimizing apps, it has one of the more modern interfaces which makes it stand out. Its choice of fonts, logos, and more makes it pleasant to the eyes.

Using the application

First, the app scans the computer to see the different issues that it has. It will then match this to the feature that can fix it. This whole scanning process only takes a couple of minutes to finish but can take longer in case your computer has a lot of issues in it. This is an important step that can help you see the reason why your computer may be slower than usual. After this scan, the application can start fixing the issues while running in the background. While this happens, users can use other apps because of the low memory usage of the app.

Automatic optimization

With them, users can have automatic tools to make the whole process more convenient. There is no need to manually scan and fix your issues every time. This can be used with the Task Scheduler.

Other automatic tools

Their first tool for this is Auto Clean which allows you to clear out all session traces and history records for your browsers whenever they are closed. Temporary files that are not downloaded and used by the user anymore are also deleted to ensure that it will no longer take up space in your hard drive.

Next, they have a live tuner that can quickly terminate the application that you have just closed. Through this, the new apps that you open will have accelerated performance. This is because the memory of the computer will only be used by the ones that you will focus on.

Lastly, they also have a game booster which can terminate unnecessary background applications. These will ensure that resource-demanding applications will get enough memory to function with reliable frame rates.

This tool also has a history record that shows the different processes that it has modified. It also displays the number of files it has cleaned and deleted.

Different functions

The application uses a variety of features to ensure a faster computer for you.

First, the application can be used to clear out space within your hard drive. This is an important tool in case you are prone to downloading files that you forget later on. This is also important if you install and uninstall a lot of applications as these can still have leftover files in your hard drive even if removed. Collectively, these can take up to gigabytes of space in your hard drive which can limit the number of files that you can install in the future.

Users can also defragment the hard drive. Through this, any gaps within it will be compressed to make computer loading times much faster. This is a common tool used to ensure that the files inside it will be stored in a more efficient way.

The application also ensures that Windows’ system files are not corrupted and are fully functional. This ensures that you will not have any application crashes, system instability issues, and many bugs and crashes that are usually a result of errors in the operating system.

The application can also be used to get a full summary of the condition of your hardware. Here, you can look at its current model, its temperature, and more. While the app itself cannot be used to fix this, this can be a way for you to know why you are getting low speeds especially as newer apps tend to have more resource demands.

Users can use the app to increase their privacy with the computer. You can ensure that folder sharing, updating settings, Cortana, cloud syncing, and other tools set by Windows are disabled properly in case you do not want to use them.

In our review of Ashampoo Winoptimizer we found it did a pretty good job overall.


After using the application, we experienced faster browsing speeds, applications, and computer performance. With all of these useful features, this was expected from the app.

Ashampoo WinOptimizer greatly improves computer performance with its plethora of features which are continuously updated by its developers to fix newer issues. These are in a single interface that is easy to navigate through and comes with multiple tools that can make the whole process automatic.
