Ashampoo WinOptimizer is a complete suite of tools to make your Windows® computer work better and even look better. It not only checks every component and every folder of your system to make sure you do not host more files than those you need, but also monitors your disk space, your memory performance, and all your running processes. It gives you total control on the start-up process and the registry of your system.

With full support for all Windows VistaTM versions, this new Ashampoo WinOptimizer has become an integral solution to all your performance problems. Divided into four blocks, it includes extremely useful sets of Cleaning Tools, Tuning Tools, File Tools and Tweaking Tools.

With its Cleaning Tools you will be able to clean up all those files that should not be there taking up precious disk space and slowing down your system’s performance. You can completely clean up all the garbage accumulated in your drives after uninstalling no longer needed software. You can also update your registry, so no trace is left of those programs you have been using in the past. Similarly, you can easily get rid of all those files that web pages leave in your system for future visits. All of these functions generate a report where you can check which files remain and which should be permanently deleted.

Equally useful are the Tuning Tools, which will allow you to configure your system’s start-up, selecting which programs should be launched every time you start up your operating system, and which should not. You can also improve the way your processes are managed by Windows®, and your Internet access performance.

The File Tools are especially interesting, as they include utilities that may not improve your Windows® performance, but will certainly help you to manage your files. Here you can find a file splitter and joiner, a file wiper (that will permanently delete any file), and a file encrypter and decrypter. And for more experienced users, the Tweaking Tools will give you the possibility to access and manage Windows® tools that are usually out of your reach. You can even change the way your operating system looks in your computer, using its attractive Visual Styler.
