UPDATE: This deal has now ended, but there's still time to take advantage of the final offer in our series - free Audials One.

Here's a special Christmas gift from us to you - or rather to your PC. We've teamed up with our colleagues at PC-Welt to offer Tech Advisor readers a licence for Ashampoo WinOptimizer 2020, worth $29.99 (£22.43), but yours completely free to download and keep.

However, there is a catch: this offer is valid today only and must end on Tuesday 22 December at 23:59.

More software goodies are coming your way tomorrow - keep your eyes peeled for offers!

Why install Ashampoo WinOptimizer 2020?

Windows can slow down over time. This is often caused by the clutter of junk files and messy Registry entries left behind by files and programs even after they have been deleted. WinOptimizer is an optimisation utility for your PC, cleaning the system and accelerating performance.

Alongside clearing the clutter, wiping and encrypting data (also useful for privacy purposes), it can help you control which programs launch at Windows startup to get up and running faster.

There are 23 modules within Ashampoo WinOptimizer, all designed to help you boost and customise Windows, and all easily accessible from within a single interface.

The latest edition includes an internet tuner for optimising your network settings, along with two performance benchmarks.

  • Eliminate web browsing traces
  • Configure privacy settings
  • Defragment Windows Registry
  • Manage running processes
  • Optimize startup times
  • Securely delete files
  • Optimize internet connections
  • Display detailed system information
  • Track down memory hogs
  • Analyze system performance
