360Amigo System Speedup Free

CNET Editors' review

At first, 360Amigo System Speedup Free seemed to be of the more-tease-than-tool school of free system cleaners, and certainly its developers would like you to buy their premium package. But the free tool proved to be a good performer that will help many users keep their PCs running smooth and safe.

As with so many freeware versions of premium system utilities, 360Amigo's interface is stylish and heavy on the graphics and captions that explain what each feature does. The program consists of a system cleaner and a system optimizer, with a number of extra utilities, though some of the advanced tools are only available with the paid software. As with similar software, 360Amigo's System Cleaner scans for junk files and invalid or orphaned registry entries, runs a privacy sweep, defragments your disk drives, and restores your system to a previous state (if necessary). We performed a scan, and 360Amigo displayed its results along with some alarming graphics suggesting our well-maintained system's status was "bad," which free system cleaners are prone to do. We could de-select items for cleaning by unchecking their boxes, and the folder views let us see which files in each category the program was targeting for removal; in fact, 360Amigo's utilities offered more information about the files to be cleaned than many premium tools we've seen. After making our selections, we ran the first cleaner. Here's where many free tools clean a few errors and offer to clean the rest for a price, but 360Amigo powered through all three tools. Next we tried the System Optimizer, which includes an unusually detailed Startup Manager, a NetState tool that identifies all open connections and lets users terminate connections instantly, and a process manager, services manager, and uninstaller. The Tools menu offered an impressive array of extras like a Duplicate File Finder, a full Backup & Restore application, a drivers manager, a file recovery tool, and many others.

After we'd run 360Amigo's scan but before we let it fix the errors it found, we ran similar tools, including a premium package, for comparison. While the results were similar, 360Amigo's scan turned up some files the others didn't. The acid test came after we rebooted: 360Amigo's changes did no harm, and while our system didn't run noticeably better, we had the satisfaction of knowing the junk was gone from our system.

    "Another Great Utility Safe"

    December 26, 2011  |   By Rwhatsmyname

    Version: 360Amigo System Speedup Free 1.2.1.7500

    Pros

    Safe on your Registry
    Does What all of the Free Competitors do and does it well.
    Cleans Quickly and can run a "One Click cleanup" right from your task-bar at anytime (Nice)
    Also has a Registry De-frag tool

    Cons

    Just Use Care as with all Cleaning Utilities

    Uses a lot of cpu during a cleanup but fairly quick.

    Summary

    I mainly use for the one click clean up feature. I love testing out Utility cleaning software and this is one I use every day. I have not fully tested all the features that this tool has mainly the cleaning features. Not sure about the disk defrag feature either since I leave that job to Auslogics

    "Excellent free program."

    October 23, 2011  |   By KML7

    Version: 360Amigo System Speedup Free 1.2.1.7500

    Pros

    Seems to be thorough. Reduced start up time for my old XP to 17 seconds.

    Cons

    Smart Defrag seemed to be slow but otherwise I scanned PC with IObit Malware Fighter, Avast! antivrus and Malware Bytes after running Amigo and found nothing

    "Superior Cleaner Than Any Other!"

    October 21, 2011  |   By heiliine

    Version: 360Amigo System Speedup Free 1.2.1.7500

    Pros

    I particularly like the "one click" feature which only removes the safe to delete items. Other registry cleaners (free) have caused me problems.
    Safer than advance system care

    Cons

    nothing that i can think of

    Summary

    easy to use, fairly fast, does a good job. Works well with Disk defrag program

    "Good Utility Program But Could Use An Updating"

    October 15, 2011  |   By TonyBeGoode

    Version: 360Amigo System Speedup Free 1.2.1.7500

    Pros

    Easy to use; provides a lot of information, and the cleaners seem to work well (although I disagreed with a couple of it's default settings). The features and tools are extensive, some being quite useful. (and perhaps unique for a free program)

    Cons

    I've had 360 Amigos in and out of my system a couple of times now, and, for all the information it displays, it consistently shows my operating system as "unknown" (except spelled: unknow). Perhaps this program could use some updating, as my OS is Windows 7 x64 Service Pack 1, which is not that uncommon. It doesn't exactly fill me with confidence.

    Summary

    As you might expect, I'm reluctant to let a program that can't even identify my OS anywhere near my registry, but the file cleaners work well enough. What has grabbed me about 360 Amigos is it's extras. I have other programs for file and registry cleaning, but the outstanding (and sometimes unique) feature and tool set are what I keep it for, and in that regard, it's a killer program and well worth having.
