  1. Review - Ashampoo WinOptimizer

    15.00.00 (May 15, 2017)

    Not bad, many of the utilities are simply duplicated in Windows, the cleanup tool is surpassed big time by CCleaner - O&O ShutUp does a far better job of Windows 10 telemetry leaks & is again free. I don't even think it overwrites browser history which again CCleaner does. OK if you pay £7 or under $10 but pay no more - A few interesting modules in it but not many. Needs more thought to be put into it.

    Of all the cleanup utilities IMO Wise 365 is probably the best.

  2. Review - Malwarebytes

    3.1.2.1733 (May 11, 2017)

    Yet another update, still fixing bugs that should have been sorted before the final was released, as I remember last August? The original team who worked on version 3 ought to consider different employment, not nice to say but probably true. Malwarebytes reputation has been flushed by themselves down the toilet.

    Read the ongoing issues on their forum. Being kind with three stars, fact that Mbam is no longer a permanent protection on any of my units says it all.

    A possible reason for the ongoing problems is that the software engineers at Mbam are incapable of doing the job they are employed to do, trying their best maybe but best but fail - Happens with plumbers, joiners, mechanics too.

    With this update I still get web protection not being on when starting the program, not really a problem anymore as Zemana does what Mbam used to do (doh) Not going to review his program again as I now rarely use it.

    @DKDude - Agree totally.

  3. Review - WinRAR (64-bit)

    5.50 Beta 2 (May 6, 2017)

    Simply the best ! (better than all the rest) Nuff said.

  4. Review - Malwarebytes (Beta)

    3.1.0.1716 (May 2, 2017)

    Sadly I have to agree with the comments below, Mbam was the best for some time, its took several updates to even get a working program. Tests have shown Mbam to be far behind other anti-malware products such as Zemana.

    Seems to some degree they have lost the plot, sad to say but true.I have lifetime licenses for Mbam so still run it from time to time but rely on Zemana & Hitmanpro Alert..

  5. Review - CCleaner for Windows

    5.29.6033 (Apr 21, 2017)

    Best cleanup program there is - Never caused me a single problem - 2 Billion stars ~
