  1. Alan Wade

    And so it should be free for those who want to mess up their system….

  2. MerlinTheGreat

    I think you are a bit misinformed.
    Version 11 is not free, but normaly costs aproximately 40$.

    Version 1 now is free…

    @disqus_VSmNo8mwTx:disqus Anyone who wants to screw up his system doesn’t necessarily need this software to do so. 🙂

  3. Thanks – I will have to reconfirm but I received an email from Angela of Ashampoo saying that Ashampoo 11 is free.

    “As of today, we offer you our great top sales program Ashampoo WinOptimizer 11 for FREE (full version after email registration).”

  4. MerlinTheGreat

    OK, I believe you.
    I just went over to Ashampoo and it says 40 $…
    I guess you have more luck than I 🙂

    Oh btw, thanks for the link.

  5. So, is V11 actually free, or is there some kind of time limit on the license? Is V12 due out soon? As far as I am aware V11 is now over 1 year old.

  6. From what I can see on the Website, Version 1.x is free, Version 11.x is $39.99.

  7. Ankit Gupta

    Ashampoo Version 11 is free, paid version has additional functionality.

  8. Lou Tally

    I was impressed by this software, but it was a flag that the link at the end actually takes one to the download page for version 10, and following the related link to version 11 does NOT show it is free. I don’t deny that the company intended to offer it for free, but if they can’t get this web page interface issue resolved it raises a question about the quality of their software. Pass for now.

  9. I received this confirmation from the company: “We provide our shareware program Ashampoo WinOptimizer 11 for FREE since April 2015. It`s a full version after email registration.”

  10. I have made changes in the post. Version 11 is now free too!

  11. Thank you for this.

  12. MerlinTheGreat

    Thank you for clearing out.
