Ashampoo WinOptimizer has a very complete application available for both free and paid versions. It contains features such as disk cleaners, disk defragmenters, and more that can help improve PC performance and bring back system stability.

Ashampoo is a German company found in 1999 that is known for their various applications that range in usage, from photo editing, disk burning, and PC tuning. For the last one, Ashampoo WinOptimizer is their representative product. It is a popular choice because of its abundant features, its good pricing, and its easy usage. The application is equipped to fix the computer with only minimal effort from the user which is it is easy to use and built with an intuitive interface. It is compatible with Windows 7, 8, and 10.


How does it work?

The application is built to be an easy fix for a slow computer. It has a lot of features such as having better fixes for all parts of the computer such as the registry, the memory, and more. The application is now in its 19th version and is continued to be improved by its developers to be able to fix newer PC issues.

The application can be used very easily. Upon launching, users simply need to click a couple of buttons for the app to start a full fix of the PC’s issues. They can also choose only specific features if they only want to fix some parts. The application comes with both a free version and a full one. We found both versions helpful for fixing PC issues.

Free version

The first part of the app that we will review is its free version. It can be downloaded directly from their website.

What makes the free version recommendable is because of its various features that are helpful not just for performance improvement but also for system maintenance and security of the computer.

The application has a Windows PC tuner that modifies some settings of Windows to make every startup easier. It can also be used to fix corrupted system files to bring back system stability.

The application comes with an effective disk cleaner. This can be used to clear out the different junk files in your computer that you are not using but are taking up space. This includes browser records, leftover files from uninstalled applications, and more. Upon using it, the app was able to delete more than 5GB of junk from our hard drive which gives us more space for downloading more applications.

The application lets you know the different issues that your hardware is facing by showing a quick summary of its current model, benchmarks, and other information. While it does not fix this directly, this can be a good way for you to know if it should be replaced or fixed for you to be able to run newer apps. Keep in mind, though, that Windows already has a built-in tool that shows you complete information about your hardware parts.

The application can be used to modify and check the current privacy settings of the application to ensure that you will be more safe against malware and third-party apps who may try to gather your private information. They have a unique tool called AntiSpy that ensures that you will be free from privacy-invading files and settings.

Lastly, the free version allows you to recover files that you have accidentally deleted in case your computer’s hard disk has not rewritten it yet. It can also be used to encrypt or totally delete the files.

For a free version, the application is definitely recommended for those looking for an easy way of speeding up computer performance.

Paid Version

Even with all the features included in the free version, users are still advised to purchase the paid version. After all, it contains several important features that can greatly improve computer finders.

This includes the Disk Defragment tool that can lessen the gaps in between the hard disk and ensure that loading times will be faster. This is good in case you are prone to uninstalling apps.

Next, the paid version has smart automatic tools that can automatically boost computer performance especially when you are gaming. It does this by reducing background apps that run on the PC and allotting computer resources for the video game.

The program also connects to your internet browser. First, it can delete any unnecessary cookies and temporary files it has downloaded. It can also update your extensions and improve overall privacy.


Ashampoo WinOptimizer is a recommended program for those looking for a system optimizer with a lot of features. These features are targeted towards various parts of the PC to ensure a complete PC fix.

Ashampoo WinOptimizer comes with both a free and a paid version, both of which are very helpful in improving computer performance. It contains important tools such as hard disk cleaners, startup optimizers, privacy optimizers, and more.
