Ashampoo PowerUp 3
All-in-one system optimiser Ashampoo PowerUp includes a slew of helpful utilities to make your PC perform faster.
- Good for power users
- Not great for tech novices
Power users will certainly welcome Ashampoo PowerUp, even if it doesn't offer as much advice for those with a less technical background.
Price$ 81.99 (AUD)
All-in-one system optimiser Ashampoo PowerUp includes a slew of helpful utilities to make your PC perform faster, including a Registry Cleaner, bootup optimiser, overall system tuneup tools, and features that customise how you access your network.
In addition to tuneup tools, Ashampoo PowerUp also has options for customising the way that Windows works. These include customising startup and shutdown, Windows logon, the Windows desktop; whether to use animation effects in Windows Vista; and even options for customising Vista's dreaded User Account Control (UAC).
All that is to the good, but Ashampoo PowerUp 3 is pointed more at power users than at less-experienced people looking to tune up their systems.
Ashampoo PowerUp doesn't include detailed advice and wizards - it shows you the options, describes what they do, and let you take it from there. A piece of software such as the identically priced TuneUp Utilities does a better job of not just analysing your system and showing you what it finds, but also of making recommendations, such as which programs to disable from automatic startup.

The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
