    Thanks for that roger_m but for me , Avira flagged the download from freesharewares.com as malware
    " TR/Dropper.Gen [trojan] " ..... ( likewise at VT )

    .... but no problems downloading from the O&O site for the same deal .

    That was a mistake on my part. The download link at the top of the page links to an adware installer, and the correct link is further download the page. I've download offers from freesharewares before, and I had actually forgotten about the adware download, as I know not to click on it. Anyway, I've now removed the link to freesharewares.

    @Brummelchen It is Windows 10 compatible.

    Is this true?

    "Improved optimization of SSDs: File systems on SSDs fragment heavily. As well as regular TRIM optimizing, O&O Defrag 19 now improves the file structure of an SSD by optimizing the heaviest fragmented files when needed to increase performance and extend the disk lifespan."

    @Rasheed187 I installed v19, and ran the SSD Optimizer. After which, according to AS SSD Benchmark, the performance had dropped slightly. Maybe the benchmarking is not that reliable. But, as you can see in the screenshot below, the optimizer did very little. It reduced fragmentation from 52.16% to 51.76%.

    I don't know about you guys but way too many websites are becoming disgusting more n more by taking on those AD/ADWARE providers who nearly cover the page in an effort to CONCEAL A VALID CLEAN D/L LINK and try to command FOCUS . This crap makes me sick to my gut and is getting as bad IMO as when Kazaa downloaders and Coolwebsearch were the chief contributors of this sort of junk.

    To clarify, I thought that fragmentation wasn't a problem with SSD's.

    It's not much of a problem. The SD Optimizer tries to increase write speeds, and work differently from defragging hard drive. From my testing, you're not going to see much of an improvement.
