Editors' review

Ace Utilities presents a suite of familiar PC-managing tools with a very small system-resource footprint.

Smaller than 2.25MB, the tools are all integrated into a clean, familiar, easy-to-use interface with options at the top and down the left gutter. Click on one option and it opens a new window; finish using it and it closes down to the main tool menu.

The Registry Cleaner lets you decide which invalid keys to delete and whether to exclude removable media and CDs from examination. To free up disk space, Disk Analysis displays which files and folders take up the most room. The Cleaning tools find empty folders and files, temporary and unnecessary files, broken shortcuts, and duplicate files, and then remove them--permanently if need be. Not only can the program handle browser tracks, but plug-ins add support for popular apps such as Acrobat, Kazaa, and ICQ.

These robust and customizable features--combined with the access Ace Utilities provides to a few hidden Windows settings, and the option of using it in the Beginner or Expert mode--make the download suitable for every level of user.

    "Destructively invasive"

    August 26, 2014   |   By maatia3030

    Version: Ace Utilities 5.5


    works very well


    1. Adds recycle bins to every volume
    2. Deleted my restore points
    3. Locked up some of my files (tagged with a lock symbol), these file won't even respond to administrator access.
    4. Slippery company. Questionable license.
    5. Emailed seller and developer to find out if I was purchasing this software outright or renting it for a year. Received an email that said absolutely nothing. I'm thinking the license may be good for 6 months or less.


    Even thought the programs worked very well, the things it has done to my computer without notice or permission make this a very dangerous software to load on your computer.

    Will not under any circumstances, buy this software.

    "Reliable Utility"

    March 29, 2014   |   By lash2011

    Version: Ace Utilities 5.5


    I've been using this on multiple computers for about 10 years. Windows 2000, XP 32 & 64 bit, Windows 7 & Windows 8.1 with no problems & excellent results. It does keep the computer clean & running well. A very good investment.


    Nothing bad has surfaced yet!
