Editors' Review

+

Ace Utilities is an all-in-one application for maintaining computer health. It allows you to perform all the necessary tasks to ensure your machine is operating in tiptop shape.

Pros

Clarity: Ace Utilities lays everything out clearly and cleanly, so you shouldn't have a problem working with the program.

All-in-one solution: You can free up disk space by deleting junk files, manage startup programs, clear your history, and more -- all from one program. This convenience helps streamline the process of maintaining your machine.

Quick operations: All of the actions that we executed from Ace Utilities were performed quickly and effectively.

Cons

Exit option in interface: On the left-hand side of the screen, there is an "Exit" button underneath all of the other menu items. With the addition of the red "X" in the top right-hand corner, this provides a redundant feature that is too easy to click on accidentally when trying to navigate the menu.

Bottom Line

Ace Utilities is an effective utility program. If you don't already have a similar program, Ace Utilities is a very serviceable option.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Ace Utilities 5.6.1.

"Company did not honor their word"

November 02, 2014  |  By southernrican2

 |  Version: Ace Utilities 5.6.1

Pros

Pretty much works well

Cons

When I purchased this software a few years back, Part of the deal was all future updates were to be FREE for life. Now they want to charge for the upgrade.

Summary

If they wanted to start charging they should have started with their new subscribers, and grand father in those whom they promised free upgrade. They did not even bother to explain the change UNTIL, I emailed them. No longer use the software, no longer trust them.

"Excellent product."

October 11, 2014

 |  Version: Ace Utilities 5.6

Pros

Does exactly what it's supposed to do.

Cons

None noted.

Summary

Those who have called this program dangerous should do more research before making such an opinion. It does not have a virus, you don't rent it, and support questions are answered promptly.

"Utilities that really perform!"

October 04, 2014  |  By Cavin Mist

 |  Version: Ace Utilities 5.6

Pros

Small installer (less than10MB); does not dump any bloated applications.
Snappy performance.

Cons

Not 'flashy' enough like other programs, but I guess it makes up for it more than enough 'under the hood'.

Summary

Would definitely recommend this software for Windows users looking for a good system maintenance tool.

"Destructively invasive"

August 26, 2014  |  By maatia3030

 |  Version: Ace Utilities 5.5

Pros

works very well

Cons

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.

Summary

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

Pros

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.

Cons

Nothing bad has surfaced yet!

"Fantastic program"

January 04, 2014  |  By kenlynne

 |  Version: Ace Utilities 5.4

Pros

Easy Install, easy to use, cleans all of the crud off my system, keeps you informed if there are updates available.

Cons

I find no cons to this program at all.

Summary

About 6 years ago I purchased a 32 bit copy for my desktop, which runs XP Pro. I later bought a 64 bit version for my Win 7 laptop. I have never had a single problem with it. It does EXACTLY what the author says it will do. I run it on both my machines at least once a week and have been 100% satisfied with the results.

"Pay or it won't perform"

July 09, 2013  |  By Elanhui

 |  Version: Ace Utilities 5.3

Pros

My computer still boots. Only one program that I know about damaged. I certainly would not call it a virus.

Cons

Found thousands of problems but would not fix most until I paid for it. No trial period. Damaged one of my favorite programs so that I had to reinstall it. Can't see that it has helped much.
The install did not progress as it should have and I had to dig up the license key from the website with no customer service help to get it to finish doing the work it initially promised. The email with the license key was slow to arrive. It required multiple reboots. One thing in its defense - the program it damaged was also damaged by UniBlue's registry cleaner so maybe the problem lies in that particular program although the company that designed it is highly competent and well known

Summary

I would ask for my money back if it was not so much trouble. It has only been on my computer for less than a week so maybe it will proove its worth eventually.

"Excellent period!"

December 17, 2012  |  By Rioismycat

 |  Version: Ace Utilities 5.3

Pros

This is one of the best utilities that does actually work!

Cons

Only the inexperienced users that don't know what the hell they're talking about!, no problems with anything about this software and the thirty day trial period has no limits whatsoever!, something about this program being a virus is nothing butt a pure lie!, i did multiple scans and this software is 100% safe from viruses!

Summary

I WISH PEOPLE WOULD wake-up and smell the coffee!, or take a course about computers, then maybe they would know what they were actually talking about!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
