    A great product which I have been very happy with thus far. I am excited now already to see what everything will look like in a few weeks.

    Mediocre Tune-Up software that could stand out from the crowd a little more.

    Sometimes I think that this program has really optimized my computer completely. But there are still days where the performance leaves a little to be desired.

Overview

Ashampoo GmbH & Co. KG was founded in 1999 and is headquartered in Oldenburg, Germany. The medium-sized company develops and sells software products and employs over 55 people. The company’s best-selling products include Windows optimization software and a burning program. According to information given by the company, Ashampoo’s applications have been installed over 170 million times do date.

Ashampoo WinOptimizer 16 has a futuristic design and a wide range of functions. The program has all the tried-and-tested functions and brings many new features with it. The Tempo-Tacho shows users the basic system information and the Energy Manager provides access to the installed energy saving plans.

The WinOptimizer 16 can be operated just as intuitively as its predecessors and, despite the large range of functions, still has a clear overview. The software runs on Windows 7 or higher and can be tested free of charge as a demo version. User can contact the Ashampoo support team via a contact form should they have any questions.

Installation

The software can be tested without registration for 10 days. The test phase can be extended by a further 20 days by submitting an email. Subsequently, the WinOptimizer 16 must be purchased. Users of the predecessor version benefit from particularly opportune conditions.

 

The installation of the software does not require much time at all and runs almost completely automatically thanks to the Wizard. Finally, users can choose between the “Glossy Black” and the “Light Blue” design.

The WinOptimizer works on all current Windows systems, takes up very little space and hardly any resources.

Cleaning

Users who don’t want to worry about anything, can just start the convenient One-click optimization. In just a single click, WinOptimizer 16 removes all the garbage from the PC and cleans the Windows registry. The Internet Cleaner ensures that the computer’s entire surfing history is removed, and the Drive Cleaner add an extra storage space to your hard drive. The various cleaning functions can also be called up directly from the software’s main menu.

Under the menu item “Automatic”, the Auto-clean function can be found, which removes existing garbage and prevents future garbage. When users close a program or browser, an automatic broom ensures that no unnecessary data remain on the hard drive. Thus, users don’t have to worry about a thing. Ashampoo WinOptimizer independently analyzes and verifies where the Internet browser and other programs set aside data garbage using various cleaner functions. The intelligent features search for and find any files that may threaten users’ privacy, subsequently removing them from the computer completely.The Tune-Up software is also suitable for multi-user operating systems and finds garbage in every profile. Users who don’t enjoy the fully-automatic feature, can start all cleaning functions manually. Under “System maintenance”, the Registry cleaner, Internet cleaner and Drive cleaner can be found. During a registry clean-up, WinOptimizer 16 automatically applies a backup. Thus, all changes in the Windows registry can be undone quickly and easily. Using the Browser extension manager feature, users can uninstall any unused browser extensions from their computer. It supports Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer.

Tune-Up

In total, the Tune-Up software consists of 36 modules, thereby covering all PC areas. In the “Overview” feature, users can see at a glance which problems exist and how big the optimization potential is. The Tacho is located on the top right hand side of the overview screen. By means of an illustrative graph it shows the utilization of the processor. With one simple click on “Optimize“, the Ashampoo WinOptimizer 16 independently rectifies all existing problems. During the optimization, unnecessary auto-start programs and unneeded active services are removed, which increases the performance of the computer. Additionally, the software analyzes and optimizes the Windows system settings.

If users wish to take matters into their own hands, they can find various Tune-Up functions under “Increase performance”. The Service manager allows users to find unnecessary services and the SSD Wizard optimizes connected hard drives. The handy Energy manager module enables users to access all Windows energy saving plans and to customize them. The Live tuner speeds up the launching of programs and stops unnecessary processes. Gamers can enjoy higher performance with the Game Booster. This function disables all unnecessary background programs and provides the games with all the available resources.

You can find the actual tuning functions for the operating system under the menu item “Customize Windows“. The WinOptimizer 16 provides users with handy Tweaking tips and adjusts, among other things, the taskbar and the explorer effects. This menu also provides users with several tools to optimize one’s privacy under Windows 10. For example, the telemetry can be deactivated for all PC users and the update function “Peer-2-Peer” can be stopped in one click.

Repair

Further down in the menu, the module “File tools” can be found. The File Wiper allows for data to be safely deleted and the File Manipulator enables users to encrypt and decrypt their files. The Disk Doctor checks the hard drive for errors and the Undeleter allows for deleted data to be recovered. The software finds faulty program links using the Link Checker and WinOptimizer looks for duplicate files by means of the Duplicate Finder.

 

The System Restore Manager can be found in the “Admin” module. This can be used to manage all recovery points on the computer. Users can save the current desktop icon layout and restore it when necessary in the Icon Saver. In the module “Backups”, users can undo any changes made.

User-friendliness

The WinOptimizer 16 from Ashampoo is available to users entirely in German. The modern user interface can be utilized in 2 different designs, still remaining clear and accessible. The Tune-Up software supports all Windows systems from 7 and can be installed on the computer in minutes. The program can either be purchased online and downloaded directly, or ordered on DVD. In addition to the single license, WinOptimizer 16 is also available as a family pack license (multiple license). Users of the previous version can upgrade for very a low price.
