***DCT EXCLUSIVE***

winoptimizer_10Our generous friends at Ashampoo have once again come to the party, donating 10 full licenses for Ashampoo WinOptimizer 10 to giveaway to our subscribers. This is the very latest version of the excellent WinOptimizer software, released just a couple of days ago and which would normally sell for $39.99us.
For your chance to win one of the 10 full licenses on offer, simply submit a reply to this article with a comment. We’d prefer if you commented on the Ashampoo WinOptimizer software… competition ends 17th March.

*If your comment does not appear immediately it’s because first comments must be moderated, it will appear shortly!

For those who don’t already know; Ashampoo WinOptimizer comprises a collection of cleaning, maintenance, and optimization tools all accessible in the one terrific suite.

The first pleasant surprise was during installation when I noticed that Ashampoo has dropped the previous optional toolbar. Installation is now pretty straightforward, all you need worry about is whether or not you want the desktop shortcuts:

Ashampoo has earned a deserved reputation for providing the simplest yet most intuitive interfaces with its products and WinOptimizer is no exception. I very much like the way in which WinOptimizer 10 caters for both novice and more experienced users:


WinOptimizer main interface

As you can see from the screenshot; three nice big buttons clearly delineate the various sections associated with the one-click solution. Less experienced users can simply click on the Start Search button to get things going. When the scan has completed you will see a summary of issues identified under each section:

WinOptiizer scan results

For a more in depth analysis, click on the big buttons and a new window will open which provides access to more detailed reports:

WinOptimizer security issues

The above screenshot is what came up after clicking on the “Protect” button. Each set of issues is easily accessed by utilizing the opposing arrows at top right of the window. Clicking on the link in “Click here to view and extensive list of all found objects” is pretty much self explanatory.

When ready, just click on the “Fix now” button and WinOptimizer goes to work. It’s all pretty quick, from go to whoa was just a matter of a few minutes on my well worn Windows 7 system.. Of course, that also depends on how regularly the machine has been cleaned previously.


That’s just WinOptimizer’s core functionality, there is a lot more to investigate under the hood, including a wealth of settings and useful tools:

Modules can also be sorted into Categories or Functionality.

This great software includes all you will ever need to help maintain that all important clean and responsive system.

  1. Thank you for the giveaway. I have been using their optimizer software since version one. It is one the first programs that I will install on a new computer or when I re-install the os.

  2. Thank you for the great Ashampoo WinOptimizer 10 Giveaway. WinOptimizer is a good Sofware for every PC & Netbook.

  3. Thank you very very much for this Giveaway.Please count me in.I am a very big fan of Ashampoo products and specially of Ashampoo Winoptimizer.I have tried version 9 and i fell in love with it.It is simply awesome.the interface of winoptimizer 9 is very easy and clear.It is very easy to use and effective software for maintaining system health and performance.Now the addition of duplicate file finder, obsolete shortcuts checker, fonts manager and System Restore manager module has given it more strength.Also the new interface of Winoptimizer 10 is excellent.I want this Soft very badly.Hope i win.

  4. G’Day,

    I have used an older version of WinOptimizer and find it works well, it has a fairly safe algorithm and as a result it is quite safe to use for the average user. I have several other Ashampoo applications and i am happy with their products, as for the comments (that i am sure will appear) about spamming i have not ever received any over – large amounts of spam, mostly very good deals on their software.

  5. Wow, I would love to win the latest version of Ashampoo’s WinOptimizer. At the moment v9 is doing its job fairly well on my computer, before it was v8. Generally I appreciate Ashampoo products very much, because they are good and price worth. I am using regularly and flawless Burning Studio 12 and UnInstaller 4 and 5.

  6. Some month ago I won Ashampoo’s Burning Studio 12 in a giveaway contest, and I have to say, that this software is one of the best burning suites I ever used. To clean up my computer I’m running WinOptimizer 9, but probably I will be lucky again and win the actual version, yeahhhh.

  7. I like the automatic tuning as well as the depth of analysis winoptimizer provides. However, I would love to see recommendations regarding the safety aspect of each registry entry being deleted in a detailed view if possible.
    Thanks for the giveaway offer.
    Please count me in.

  8. Hi.
    Program Ashampoo WinOptimizer last time I enjoyed a very long time, probably another 6 version. Since then, the program did not use, but watch out for its development. At present, judging by the reviews and the program has become much better and more functional.
    Count me in please.
    Have a nice day and best regards!

  9. I have used version 9 for quite some time and find it to be invaluable. I would love to try the version 10 as it seems to address many of the procedures and programs that version 9 is missing. Dave’s computer is making it a must have piece of software and I hope one that I can enjoy soon.
    Thank you for this opportunity and the possibility of owning the new version. .

  10. I use several of the Ashampoo products and like them. I am running Winoptimizer v9 now so v10 would be a nice upgrade.

  11. Nice going, Jim. I’ve seen information about WinOptimizer in e-mails from Ashampoo, but figured it was just another temp file cleaner-registry optimizer. Your writeup and screenshots make it look much more useful. Count me in.

  12. Although I haven’t used Win optimizer, I have not heard or read any disparaging remarks about the software. I would definitely like to take this program for ride.

  13. Thanks Jim and Ashampoo for the contest.I’ve used this program before,the last being v.7 I believe,and it worked quite well.
    Ashampoo has sent generous upgrade offers,usually for $5.99 or so,but I never took advantage of them.Perhaps I can get lucky with this offering.

  14. Thanks for the give away. I have used Ashampoo products including Win Optimizer 9 and would be quite pleased to receive a new version.
