WinOptimizer 11 would normally sell for $39.99us but DCT subscribers now have the chance to win a license absolutely free simply by submitting a reply to this article with a comment… we’d prefer if you commented on the Ashampoo WinOptimizer software.

  • Competition closes 27th April
  • If your comment does not appear immediately it’s because first comments must be moderated, it will appear shortly!

Ashampoo WinOptimizer 11 – The Software

winoptimizer banner

We all like fast and secure computers, but only constant regular system maintenance and time-consuming optimizations will keep them that way. Our WinOptimizer will do the work for you, easy, fast and efficiently. It will give you maximum performance and security and save you precious time so you can get real work done instead.

I know I’m repeating myself here, but Ashampoo does have a knack for producing the most user friendly and intuitive interfaces for its software, and WinOptimizer 11 is no exception:

The screenshot above shows the “Modern” interface, there are also two versions of a “Classic” skin available to choose from. Note the “Game Booster” and “Live-Tuner” options at bottom right which can be utilized to optimize the PC for game play or specific running programs.

Ashampoo WinOptimizer includes an incredible array of features and tools:

Plus, of course, the famous WinOptimizer “One-Click” operation. Unlike many one-click solutions which tend to leave users in the dark, Ashampoo WinOptimizer provides all the customization options and settings necessary to ensure that the user remains in control – simply set it up to match your own preferences and you’re good to go:

Clean what you want when you want, regularly and automatically utilizing WinOptimizer’s built-in scheduler.

One of WinOptimizer’s features I particularly appreciate is the built-in “Backup Manager” where all changes are recorded and stored for possible restoration. While Ashampoo WinOptimizer’s reputation is second to none, we are all aware that strange things can happen with our infernal machines, and Ashampoo’s inclusion of this essential component is definitely the thoughtful and responsible route.

Ashampoo WinOptimizer is simply the most comprehensive all-in-one maintenance suite there is. Throw in the fact that it is also highly customizable and user friendly, and you have one heck of a software.
