I've downloaded this twice with Chrome. I extracted the files and ran setup, then a message popped up saying the program is registered and took me to give away of the day page, but program is not installed, Would you send me a new link?

Echoing a few earlier comments:
I'm getting "Failed to launch program". This comes up immediately after the "connecting to giveawayoftheday" splash screen.
I'm running Win 10, 64 bit, and I've tried Run As Administrator, and that gives the same result.
Would love to be able to try this program, but...
Thanks!

I installed the program with the included license. When I restarted the program it gave me the following message "Your subscription has been expired". I re-entered the username and license and the program indicated it was successfully registered. I restarted the program again and it gave me the same message "Your subscription has been expired". I have done this several times and I keep getting the message. I installed this program on a couple of laptops and all of them give me the same message. What do I need to do to get the program registered correctly?

Francis, there is probably a limit on the number of computers that you can install this giveaway on. If that limit is exceeded, measured by the IP address usually, your serial number is blacklisted and activation is reversed. Occasionally an offer on GOTD will spell this out in their right up. This was done a few days ago for one of the offers. My advice, too late in your case, is to not be greedy.

kc4cop, I noticed a spelling error in my post. I only have one hand so I use a voice recognition program to dictate my text. The program used "right" rather than "write". I missed the error. My apology to the grammar police.

Brilliant program. Works fine alongside CCleaner!

A 'must' download!

Straightforward and smooth download without problems. As with any offer from GOTD - open the 'Read Me' page first.

Thank you GOTD and AND also YL Software of course!

I installed the program with the License Code and it says it is registered. When I restart the program, it says "Your subscription has been expired". I re-entered the License Code again and everything looks good again. When I restart the program again I get the message "Your subscription has been expired". How do I get the software registered correctly.

Joseph,
This has happened to me a few times before. It's always because my antivirus is giving a false alarm. Temporarily suspend the antivirus, and it should work.

You can currently get a lifetime five-PC license for $20 at the company website. This might appeal to somebody out there. I bought one.

Try turning your anti virus off while you install the program. That usually works. :)

Duane Smith,
This often happens if your antivirus or key logger shut the setup file down before it has had a chance to install the program.
Suggest you try it with them disabled, or use the free anti-virus Panda cloud which doesn't seem to have a problem the setup file.

Duane Smith, I get this problem often with Giveawayoftheday programs. My problem was solved by disabling my virus protection when installing.

I unzipped it and clicked on setup. I get error message saying "Failed to launch program" Any solutions?

Reply   |   Comment by Norm  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Norm,
Simple....
-Temporarily disable your antivirus software.
-Delete previous download of this offer from your computer and download it again
-Extract all files into the same empty folder on your desktop
-Run setup.exe, install and then register it.
- Delete folder where setup.exe and setup.gcd resides
-Reactivate your antivirus.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why? Most past viruses came in the form of an executable file named setup.exe or setup.(something)
This triggers a false positive response from your antivirus software and corrupts the download of offers here on GOTD.
This is why you need to do the steps outlined above.

I've been using Win Utilities for a very long time. I find it to be clean and efficient and I have never regretted any of the items that it wanted to remove from the register or the disk. In short, I like it, I trust it, I use it.

These types of software most often give more problems than solved. Even Microsoft has started to warn about these cleanup and tweak tools.

If You don't know the way around in the registry i recommend, and many more IT-professionals, that You stay away from these tools.

Upgrade Your mechanical harddrive to a SSD instead, You will get far better performance. I will never go back to mechanical drives as systemdrives ever again !

This is definitely a worthwhile giveawayoftheday. It has so many tools/utilities that you can't help but find several of them useful. We had it in the past on one of our PCs and used it regularly. That PC finally died after about 15 years. WinUtilities kept it running pretty smooth which is why we kept using the ol' PC for so long. Just be careful with the Registry cleaner (as always!) and make a backup copy of the Registry before cleaning so you can restore it if necessary later.

CCleaner is a similarly good product but WinUtilities Pro simply has a few extra tools which may prove useful.

Well, Winutilities has had about 160 version upgrades over the course of about ten years. So it should be solid software. It seems to be on par with WiseCare Pro and Ashampoo Winoptimizer Pro as far as application purpose goes. In practice, Winutilities finds approximately the same amount of disk junk and registry errors as WiseCare. And its capabilities seem extensive. Kudos to its designers!

I will keep it. Thank you YL Computing and GOTD.

When I first ran 1 click maintenance it acted without warning of scanned findings and giving choice of whether or not to progress.
Also, a better default setting would have been the report option enabled.

Installed and registered with absolutely no issues whatsoever. Test run with the shortcuts fixer and it found a few entries that I no longer used. Deleted with no issues.

Found multiple unused registry items that my CCleaner had missed.

Cleaned the internet history without issues.

This one appears to be a keeper.

Reply   |   Comment by Harry  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Harry, how does it know those alledged unused reg entries were really unused? there are no enforced rules about how the registry can be used by programs! Any program can create and read a registry entry/variable and keep that use private and out of sight to all other programs, apart from registry realtime tracking tools which this isn't, so just because winutilities does not know what program has used a particular key does not mean that the key or its values are unused!

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+8)

TK, for one company to use another company's registry entries would amount to privacy invasion of a users computer. Unless you are suggesting the supporting of pirate registrations - probably getting rid of those registry entries would be a good thing.

Your suggestion to Harry might better have been making sure those empty registry keys were indeed associated with previously deleted applications. Revo UnInstaller does a great job of pairing registry entries that should be deleted with leftover directory and file entries to deleted applications. With work a knowledgeable computer user can do something similar when an application is installed and then make sure the registry is cleaned when the associated application is uninstalled. If you install a lot of applications this becomes rather time-consuming if you do it yourself.

kc4cop, what are you ranting on about? Are you demanding lessons in obscure but still legit registry usages? Not going to happen without a contract!

Ever wonder how some shareware trials know you've already had your 30 day trial and won't let you trial it again? Yet there are no conventional registry or file system signs that apear associated with the program... to find out that developers registry location you'd have to resort to hacking techniques and breach the developers no reverse engineering copyright clause. If reg cleanup utils developer do the reverse engineering to find that obscure registry entry then they are enabling pirated re-use of trial programs against the express terms of the product.

Developers can't win, criminals if they find and remove the obscure DRM keys for end users and snake oil if they can't and malicious software if they signal perfectly legit registry entries as unused or bad when they are neither and for the owning program they do the job they were intended to just fine!

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

TK, The program itself likely doesn't really "know" what's not used. It's up to the user to make the decision whether or not to delete the entries. And it clearly states that when using this part of the program. Just as with editing ANY entry in the registry it's always a good idea to backup the registry just in case it causes a program to not operate correctly.

Don't go under the assumption that I would just delete entries willy-nilly.

I have 11.3 with lifetime license and when I opened it today it offered to upgrade the license to 13. Since today's offering provides upgrades for 1 year, I wonder if it is better to upgrade to 13 from 11.3 than reinstall from GOTD.

Reply   |   Comment by Harry  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-10)

Harry, Why would you even consider upgrading a lifetime license from any site other than the developers? But do what you will.

Reply   |   Comment by Duante  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+14)

Harry, the key question is your 11.3 a free upgrades for lifetime license or simply lifetime usage license with NO upgrades, the wording of this implies it has 1 years free upgrades but no restrictions on future usage save that you will not be able to upgrade beyond the year. I suspect that because you were STILL on 11.3 that your lifetime license was a usage only license and no entitlement to free upgrades or else there would not be such a big version jump from 11.3 to 13.0, you would have already kept yourself continually upgraded.

I use and have three favorites utilities. WinUtilities being one. The other came up on GOTD a few days ago. WiseCare 365. Have used both of them for years. Never a problem with either one. Cleans the useless crap off of your computer and leaves the important ones alone. Speeding up your system, is well,,, debatable. If you already do regular maintenance on your system, then no, you won't gain speed. If you haven't maintain anything since 2009, you'll see speed! Anyway it's well worth downloading. Thanks to WinUtilities and GOTD for the great offer. BTW. CCleaner is number three on my list.

I have used this program and others like this in the past however i have since replaced all my drives with SSD hard drives which gives me a much better performance all around , SSD drives dont need many of these tools any more and most of these programs is not catering for the new drives ,i should add the most if not all SSD drives comes with their own set of tools but for normal drives this is a good program which i have used ,thanks very much but i dont think i need it anymore will wait for a new or better updated version .

Reply   |   Comment by keese  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-12)

SSDs do not yet have near the data capacity, nor the stability of disk drives. They have a completely unpredictable failure rate as opposed to RAID disks, and are severely overpriced. I am glad that yours is special, but reality is that the large majority of us use RAID drives and this utility is excellent for them. Thanks GOTD Its a keeper!

Always install using an UnInstaller, but this install took me by surprise as it did restart unexpectedly, hence my UnInstaller failed.
After registering it also did restart of my computer again.

Gave it a try using one click maintenance just to see what it did, once it had started the only way to get it to stop was to shut it down by taskmaster.
I know one of these one click maintenance programs disappeared my browser passwords when I was testing it and I'm pretty sure it was this program.
Under the Modules tab there are a number of useful features my favourite Is the Context Menu Manager but there are many more users will find useful.
They come under the headings of, Cleanup and Repair, Files and Folders, Optimised and Improve, Registry Tools, Privacy and Security and System Tools.
A really useful selection all in one convenient window.

A useful program, but, $79 is more than I would be willing to pay but it's free today and worth a download.
