Ashampoo WinOptimizer
Maintain, optimise and clean your PC with this all-in-one performance tool

Ashampoo WinOptimizer 14 is a very comprehensive PC cleanup, maintenance and optimisation suite.

If you're short of hard drive space, for example, the program can remove leftover Windows and application files, surplus browser traces (IE, Edge, Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Safari), unnecessary duplicate files and broken shortcuts. A "Disk Space Explorer" helps you find other space-hogging folders, and the program can even defrag the drive when it's done to ensure you're getting the best possible performance.

An array of other speedup modules helps to control your Windows startup programs, highlight and disable unnecessary services, optimise your internet connection, clean and defragment your Registry, remove unwanted applications, manage running processes, and more.

WinOptimizer includes a whole library of maintenance modules, including tools to benchmark your system speed, monitor drive health, control file associations, edit Explorer context menus, save and restore your desktop icon settings, and split, join, encrypt, decrypt, wipe and undelete files.

It's also fully up-to-date, and includes modern tools like a Windows 10 privacy protector (disable Microsoft's telemetry in seconds).

While this might sound complex, it really isn't. You can have WinOptimizer find and fix any issues on your PC in a couple of clicks, then leave it to maintain your system all on its own. Or you can take full control of any of its modules, whenever you need them. It's your call.

Highlights of version 14:

  Automatic deletion of web browsing traces and temporary files
  Optimal privacy settings for Windows 10
  Reliable system failure warnings
  Fix Windows errors with a single click
  New look for maximum clarity
  System analysis with support for the latest hardware
  Full Microsoft Edge support
  Newly developed Internet cleaner with multi-user support
  Updated search algorithms for all cleaner modules
  Full performance through effective system tuning

Verdict:

A comprehensive set of PC maintenance tools. Whether you like hands-on tweakery or prefer to set it and forget it, there's plenty for you here.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
