Windows is great – but there's always room for improvement. That's where Ashampoo WinOptimizer comes in! Because, over time, operating systems tend to slow down, become unstable and clutter up. Important settings are also either missing or hidden deep within the system. And then there's the constant privacy intrusion introduced with Windows 10 and 11, euphemistically dubbed "telemetry". WinOptimizer puts a stop to this, fast, easy and effectively! It whips your PC back into shape and makes it feel like new again. Let WinOptimizer clean, optimize and protect your machine and enjoy a fast, lean and secure Windows PC with intact privacy, permanently!
The cleaners in Ashampoo WinOptimizer 25 are 50% faster and more effective than the previous generation, thanks to a major technological overhaul. Never before has such a drastic improvement been achieved between two WinOptimizer versions! Whether Drive Cleaner or Internet Cleaner, results appear almost instantaneously and junk detection rates are off the charts. Older systems will particularly benefit from the enhanced performance, buttery smooth animations, reduced memory footprint, and new context menus. Naturally, all cleaners have been fine-tuned for current operating systems, setups, and browsers.
With the new and extended in-depth cleaning, the hunt for junk files enters a new phase–and privacy and display issues are also easily fixable now! Get rid of old Windows versions, Windows update backups, and Windows usage statistics. Fix display issues in your games by emptying the DirectX shader cache, and speed up your slow Windows Explorer by clearing the preview cache. You'll also regain loads of hard disk space in the process. Benefit from eight powerful new options and give your Windows PC the ultimate performance makeover!
We've redesigned the cleaner interfaces to give you all the essential information at a glance. Fold-out category views have extra details when you need them, and the ever present right-click context menus provide additional features on demand. There's also a search function that spans across all categories. Furthermore, running processes can now be canceled at any time. WinOptimizer 25 is the first version to make full use of multi-core capabilities in its cleaners, e.g. Registry Cleaner, for an additional speed boost. You'll notice the difference straight away!

Windows 11 was released after the previous WinOptimizer so it was high time the program fully embraced the changes and new possibilities! WinOptimizer 25 features buttons, icons, and dialogs perfectly tailored to the design of Windows 11.

No. 1 customer request: Bring back the CPU speedometer! So we did–and we also upgraded its design to match the new elegant tile-based look.

Contrasts have been improved to reduce eye strain, and the interface now supports Windows Aero Snap for easy window docking and scaling.

Aside from cleaners and optimizers, WinOptimizer also offers modules that other companies would rather sell you as separate applications. This includes Process Manager for a better look at what is running on your PC, and UnInstall Manager for details on installed applications.

These modules have all received speed and visual improvements as well as feature extensions. Icon Saver and Restore Manager now feature a new fresh design while File Wiper offers better handling. In total, Ashampoo WinOptimizer 25 bundles thirty cutting-edge tools that cover the whole spectrum of system cleaning, tuning, and optimization!

Browsers are not only your window to the internet but also threatened by malicious extensions that cause slowdowns or spy on you. You're probably familiar with toolbars but chances are you're far less familiar with the numerous extensions that may live in your browser, offering little to no use but threatening performance and your privacy. Many even manage to stay hidden from browsers' installed extensions lists! Browser Extension Manager puts a stop to this. It lists all installed extensions across your browsers and gives you the choice to delete them, if needed! It only takes a single click to rid your browsers of a malicious extension and make browsing the web a little safer!
A total of three automatic features take the major work off your shoulders! Auto-Clean not only rids your system of junk data but reduces clutter before it takes hold. As soon as you close your browser, or other application, this fully-automatic broom sweeps everything off your drives that doesn't belong, like temporary files. Live Tuner provides a smart launch boost to all applications and allows for custom fine tuning to assign different priorities to individual applications, e.g. "high" for more performance. Game Booster does exactly what its name implies: It closes unnecessary background processes non-essential to gaming while your game is running to give your game a boost and restarts them when you're done playing so you can get back to work.
