Editors' review

360Amigo System Speedup Free is, as the name suggests, the free version of a larger utility. And while the company hopes you'll like the Free version enough to buy the full-feature version, the free offering is still a good utility in its own right.

Installation is simple and fast, but it still offers to create a system restore point for you, which is a nice touch. Once launched the 360Amigo System Speedup Free is straightforward. Several options are grayed out (prompting you to upgrade to the paid version) but the basic utilities such as junk file cleanup and an optimizer are all fully functional. The junk file cleaner searches your drive for temporary and cache files, allowing you to delete them and free up disk space. The system optimizer examines your system and offers advice for system tweaking on a variety of fronts. It also suggests automated routines that you can implement to help keep your system optimized with less intervention. The interface is easy enough to understand and use, and the tools do what they claim.

There are a lot of similar utilities on the market. We compared 360Amigo System Speedup Free to TuneUp Utilities and they both performed the file cleanup and system optimization well, with a few insignificant differences in their operation. After optimizing and rebooting, performance didn't change much, but there were subtle changes. We also compared 360Amigo System Speedup Free to other free utilities for file cleanup and optimization, and unlike many of the others, 360Amigo System Speedup Free does the entire process without demanding you upgrade. For that reason, as a free utility, 360Amigo System Speedup Free is an excellent addition to most systems. We ended up putting 360Amigo System Speedup Free on our utility disks and several systems we don't have full-featured utilities installed on, and it performed admirably.

    "Not worth it."

    January 22, 2014   |   By l33tard

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Some of the things it does are ok, I suppose. It didn't crash my computer or wipe my hard drive.

    Cons

    Deleted ALL of my cookies in my browser even though I unchecked the boxes. Lost all of my flash saves and everything else. All of it's other features are also done better by other programs.

    Summary

    Use something else.

    "I used it and now my brand new laptop won't start"

    September 02, 2013   |   By canadakikou

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    I had this program installed on an older laptop. It got rid of cookies and emptied the memory quickly, which Tuneup Utilities didn't.

    Cons

    It's done a number on the registry apparently. I don't even get a cursor, let alone Windows so it's rendered my brand new laptop useless.

    Summary

    Don't use this program because it can make a mess of your computer. While it worked well on my old one, now I"m going to have to take my new laptop for service to get it working again. It uses Windows 8, the old one uses Windows 7. That may make the difference.
