Editors' review

With its comprehensive suite of utilities and attractive interface, Advanced System Optimizer makes it easy to regularly clean and optimize your system for better performance. In one of our tests, the optimizer cut down the registry size by 15 percent. The system-optimizer toolset handles sensitive areas such as registry files, as well as less critical data such as junk files and cookies. Privacy and security features clean Web files left in Internet Explorer, Opera, and Netscape, as well as finding and removing spyware. Encryption and secure erasing protect sensitive data. You can even make Windows more attractive by changing icons and wallpaper. More tools can organize your appointments, create sticky notes, and even manage media files. The XP-style interface clearly explains all the program's functions without flooding you with details. Sometimes more details would be nice, though, such as which invalid keys are completely safe to remove and which you might want to examine before deleting. However, you can back up system files and even create a boot disk to use in the event of a full-system crash. The easy-to-use interface makes Advanced System Optimizer perfect for beginners.

    "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.
