One aim, one tool, a perfect result! Ashampoo WinOptimizer 9 is an easy-to-use suite of tools for maintaining and optimizing your Microsoft Windows® computer. It keeps your Windows installation free of unnecessary garbage and running smoothly while other computers just get slower and slower. Over 100 improvements were incorporated into the new WinOptimizer 8 by contrast to its predecessor WinOptimizer 7. This results in more speed and therefore improved efficiency especially within system maintenance and the adjustment of Windows®.
The cleaning modules registry optimizer, Internet cleaner and drive cleaner, for example, reach a plus of up to 500% in results. In real time the new live tuner pools all available resources in exactly those places where they are urgently needed. Existing processor cores, Windows® priorities and assigned usages of applications are customized, in order to ensure a trouble-free workflow. The resource-saving live tuner runs in the background - just a mouse click away.
It’s so easy to tune Windows®! Just answer a few special questions about your personal requirements concerning your Windows® system and our tuning assistant will automatically choose all suitable options.
