    UnInstaller Platinum 2

    Normal Price - 104.97 GB Pounds

    Deal Price - 10.99 GB Pounds :blink: :blink:

    this forum is biased!
    winoptimizer is cool....... if it works on your machine, personally ive used it twice... first time it ran ok, but a few months later i installed it again and it wouldnt work, so maybe try it yourself, if it works... its great software, as for the other 2, i dont think you really need them.

    ive tried other versions of their PowerUp product, and its mostly a system tweaker. theres better alternatives for such purpose.

    I believe Ashampoo is moving on to their Winoptimizer 4 soon so it may be better to wait and make an offer on that. Otherwise you'll probably have to pay again to upgrade. I have tried their free versions before. WinOP 2 has worked pretty well while I have had trouble with WinOp 3 crashing despite several uninstall/re-installs.

    Hi

    Aw shucks - sucker for what sounds like a deal so bought them anyway :eek:

    .... and.

    Quite impressed so far, especially with WinOptimizer. No crashes as yet and there's some quite nice features and I'm down to 33 starting process from 41 which is nice.

    For a tenner for all three I think that's pretty good value.

    Thanks to all who replied for their input.

    Purchased Ashampoo Office 2006 this week for $16.99. Discount offered by email. :thumb:

    I think that Office 2006 is really great for it's price. It accepts my documents without flaws. Light on resources too.

    My son uses Ashampoo's Magical Defrag on his PC. It's a 'proactive' defrqgger that works very nicely and doesn't consume much in the way of resources. However, like other defraggers it is not for anyone using an 'instant restorer' (like Rollback Rx)!

    I use few of their products... so far so good. I am expecting their Security product to improve...

    The Burning Studio consider one of their best... I like the Magical Snap and the Photo Commander. To be frank, my wife is complaining or nagging at me... cos I bought and upgrade their product when I needed... but what can I can do when they can offer you so much... Offer them your price, they might just accept it; like I did on the AV... Or Stake your claim for the best price; and USD$15.79 is what I paid for my Photo Commander.:-*

    Happy User of Ashampoo for years...:D
