I own Winoptimizer 15 and have (had) it installed on 4 machines. After upgrading my graphics card and uninstalling my Steam library on one machine I wanted to clear up the old game entries and shortcuts so decided to use winoptimizer (which was already installed).
It failed to start and instead posted a message stating that my key had been activated "too many times".
I tried to reactivate it manually by entering the key straight from my Stardock downloads page and again got the same response which also told me to purchase another key! I also tried uninstalling and re-installing the whole thing, but had the same problem.
To say I`m annoyed is an understatement. I have no intention of paying for this program twice, but would like what I have already paid for, to work and NOT disable itself every time I change anything on my PC`s. I fail to see the value of limiting re-authorisation attempts especially when the program is prone to de-authorizing itself for whatever reason.
(I was rather uncertain about this program after downloading it when I saw it had the Ashampoo label attached to it, none of the other many Stardock programs seem to have had any activation issues & I`ve been happy using them, but I`ve heard many horror stories about Ashampoo).
