Ashampoo WinOptimizer 6 is an all-in-one Windows maintenance application developed by Ashampoo GmbH & Co. KG. This version was initially released in 2008. The program provides different tools and functions to ensure that the computer is clean. Its main purpose is to remove unnecessary files (e.g. invalid registries, online traces and defragments) in the computer system to make it run faster and maintain an optimized system.

Ashampoo WinOptimizer 6 offers four additional features – AntiSpy Module, Favorites Tab, Context Menu Manager, and Defrag 3 Disk Defragmenter. The AntiSpy Module is used for managing various Windows and application settings that can affect the computer’s privacy. Another new feature is the Favorites Tab. This feature allows users to generate a live list of frequently used tools in the program. It also provides statistics regarding all the tasks done with the modules and tools. The Context Menu Manager feature is an added feature that offers configuration access to the Windows Explorer’s right-click menu. This enables users to disable or enable features/items in the menu. There is also the new defragmenter tool, Defrag 3, which is used for defragmenting the computer system. It can be used either manually or automatically. The defragmenter also offers the Windows Boot Time process, in which it can defragment Windows startup allowing it to run faster.

Other modules and tools available in earlier versions are still included in Ashampoo WinOptimizer 6. However, these tools have been revamped as well.
