"Beware of registry cleaners"

October 26, 2014  |  By groucho7

 |  Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.6.1000.15950

Pros

It may clean up some unnecessary files or folders.

Cons

This program includes a "Registry optimizer and cleaner." ALL "Registry optimizers and cleaners" are so much snake oil. They will damage your computer system and make it unbootable. See http://www.howtogeek.com/171633/why-using-a-registry-cleaner-wont-speed-up-your-pc-or-fix-crashes/

Summary

Stay away from Advanced System Optimizer and from any other program that includes a "Registry optimizer" or "Registry cleaner."

"Simple to use and reliable !"

September 30, 2014  |  By alroystewart

 |  Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.6.1000.15950

Pros

Advanced System Optimizer is a superb program. I have been using it for the last 5 years and I am happy that I had given it a try. I find it much better than all other optimization tools I had used before.
Its Smart PC Care feature is really very helpful, does almost everything in single click.

Cons

No cons so far.

"Do a Search for Spigot Before Installing"

September 25, 2014  |  By jycnan

 |  Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.6.1000.15950

Pros

Seriously, I love the program, even have the pro version. It does everything, however

Cons

I installed it. MalewareBytes and Avast kept screaming at me about Spigot. Chrome started crashing and my country music station is in Chrome and crashing 10+ times a day is not an option!

So I Google Spigot, it's malware. Always looking to the last thing I installed when things are not functioning normally, it was ASC. I Googled that and Spigot together, boy was that an eye opener!

Why in the 'heck' would a malware protector bundle it's software with malware? I'm having a REAL HARD time with this one.

I emailed ASC about their use of Spigot since I also had IOBytes with it. They openly admitted it. I asked them if I removed ASC and IOBit, could get rid of it. They said no! They said, I shouldn't have installed the 'toolbar'. I said I didn't, I don't install toolbars. I like my computer set up just the way it is.

Summary

I took me 30-60 days to finally eradicate Spigot from my system. ASC will never be installed on another machine. I thank my brother for suggesting Malwarebytes. Once installed, IObits became useless.

"Great utility for a well put together PC."

August 29, 2014  |  By vern62050

 |  Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.6.1000.15950

Pros

I've purchased and used at least 20 different maintenance programs in the last 35 years that I have been using PC's to make my living on. Some are okay, some are ridiculously poor, even harmful, and some are very useful. I have to rate ASO as excellent compared to all of the other maintenance programs that I have used. I have studied all of the reviews that I have found on ASO and I think that anyone that gives this utility a poor rating should look into buying a new and different brand of computer.

Cons

The first time I used the driver utility was a poor experience. Lately though it seems to be considerably more accurate. Although I wouldn't recommend it for the novice user. And the advanced user needs to use caution. Also if it had an optimizer for SSD drives, if thats possible, it would be a more complete package.

Summary

A very good reasonably priced utility for keeping PC's uncluttered and running smoothly.

"excellent program BUT"

April 25, 2014  |  By 7headed1

 |  Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.5.1000.15646

Pros

ASO is one of the best programs I have ever owned. Its thorough purification and cleansing of digital peasantry is ever pleasing to me.

Cons

Do not trust it to download and install missing drivers or to replace outdated ones. I let ASO 'scan for missing and outdated drivers' and it mucked up all of my display drivers. My pc was sickly for a while before I manually downloaded the correct Intel display drivers for my hardware. I admit i'm not much of a techy so unless you know what the program is doing at this point in the 'optimization' I would recommend skipping this stage.

"Comprehensive Cleaning Utility, but too Buggy."

March 26, 2014  |  By Franco_84

 |  Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.5.1000.15646

Pros

1. A very comprehensive cleaning and optimizing programme.
2. User friendly interface.

Cons

1. Far too buggy, many of the individual programmes crash, completely unacceptable for such a critically highly rated programme.
2. Customer support is average.
3. Frequent updates to the programme are non-existent.

Summary

This has the potential to be a fantastic cleaning utility programme. It has many features in one complete package, but the programme is unstable, causing crashes and closing down programmes. Updates to the programme are non existent, and customer support for the problems I had seemed apathetic. I will not be renewing my annual licence.

"STOP!!!! DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT!!!!"

March 25, 2014  |  By dwillpirate

 |  Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.1.648.6846

Pros

Initially it seemed to be a great system to search my entire computer, find errors and fix them, but....

Cons

I installed the program after what I now know were fake "HP Help" guys from India recommended it. First off, it would install older versions of drivers that would end up causing more problems. My computer ran fine prior to the program and continued to slow down more and more over time. Eventually it got to the point where my computer would freeze after 5 minutes of use. I bought a new hard drive and loaded ASO first, and immediately my computer began to run extremely slow, using 100% of CPU space. I called the tech support number and got another guy from India who again tried to sell me the same "maintenance plan" as before that cost $350. It is an absolute scam to try to get people to pay for more unneeded service.

Summary

DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT. If you have any version of it on your computer, get it off, it will cause you nothing but problems. It is a Trojan Horse that actually introduces more problems to your computer, which Systweak will "fix" for hundreds more dollars. STAY AWAY!!!

"Simple, excellent and effective features!"

February 19, 2014  |  By georgeheid

 |  Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.5.1000.15646

Pros

Advanced System Optimizer is a great fit for me as just a couple of clicks all that I need to automate system tuning and optimization processes.. from freeing up disk space to securing my PC, there isn't anything it can't do. This is the only optimization tool that I use for the last 6 years and has not given me a day's trouble. And it is packed with utilities that do almost anything needed for my PC.

Cons

Install it and it is there when you need it.
