Getting your PC optimised normally involves installing a host of specialist utilities, learning their individual quirks, and hoping they'll all work together. But there is a simpler way. Ashampoo WinOptimizer provides many of the most common PC cleanup and management functions in single, straightforward interface, making it much easier to keep your system running at peak performance.

The Cleaning Tools section includes a Registry Cleaner that creates backups just in case you delete something important. You can also wipe your Internet trail that builds when you surf the web.

The Tuning Tools section features an Internet Tuner, which tweaks your TCP/IP settings to improve online performance. There's a StartUp Tuner for controlling which programs are launched when Windows boots, an "IP Spam Blocker" and more. You can defragment your hard drive as well as tweaking third-party tools such as your web browser.

And if you really want an easy life, then schedule the "1-Click-Optimisation " feature to run every couple of weeks. It'll clean up your hard drive, Registry and Internet traces automatically, no further input required.

This brand new v8 release ships with a much improved user-interface.
