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.

"Do not Trust Software company"

January 22, 2016  |  By southernrican2

2016-01-22 16:29:37  |  By southernrican2

 |  Version: Ace Utilities 6.1

Pros

Not bad software.

Cons

When I purchased software, the contract was Free updates for life. One day I try to get update and BAM, one has to pay for updates, no heads up, no special price for old customers or consideration, nothing.

Summary

The company did not honor their word, after a few years, they now want to charge every year. No special price or any thing for loyal customers. They were only updating software one or twice a year.

"Company did not honor their word"

November 02, 2014  |  By southernrican2

2014-11-02 11:40:42  |  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.

 |  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

2014-10-04 07:21:43  |  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

2014-08-26 03:17:08  |  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.

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.

"Fantastic program"

January 04, 2014  |  By kenlynne

2014-01-04 12:35:00  |  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.
