Advanced System Optimizer

CNET 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.

    "Does the job plus good help but very costly"

    November 12, 2013  |   By u22805

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 2.01.4

    Pros

    No problems with any of the features OmniTech offers with this program.
    There is a desktop help icon that does get prompt IT help when you have questions or problems.

    Cons

    For the full package: advanced System Optimizer, System Protector and the online IT service if needed, they quote $399. Press them on this and they'll quote $299 and press them further and they will quote $199..why must everything be a race to see if throwing a price to the wall will stick? Their pricing is ridiculous in that there are other Pro optimizers and Pro Malware Systems available for $100 combined.

    Summary

    Nice but not worth the money! If you are a neophyte who has no idea of what to do with a computer then you could be sold this in a second as the most complete package available. If you have some average computer skills, you can do with much cheaper systems that do a fine job in their own right such as iObit, AVG, Avast, ReZook etc.

    "Beware - Virus SCAM!"

    October 7, 2011  |   By Dorje55

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 2.01.4

    Pros

    None -created false popups on my computer

    Cons

    Created unending popups on my comuter. Technical supports attemtped to scam me

    Summary

    When there was a glitch in the software I called the company, before I knew it they had engaged in high pressure techniques to get me to allow them to connect directly to my computer. What followed was an even higher pressure sales pitch to convince me that I had viruses that only they could identify and could only be removed by them or their associates at a cost of over $500 per computer. I eventually hung up on them disconnected my computer and removed their software entirely from the system. I had to have my IT consultant come and check my computers for damage at a cost much greater than the software. I am running a top-of-the-line virus protection program which has never detected a virus and upon running subsequent deep scans continues to show no viruses - nor has my computer ever shown any signs of a virus until the bugginess of their software appeared.
    This is a scam - orr there sites have be hijacked - do not order or download

    "Not a one off price - Requires more cash after a year"

    May 17, 2010  |   By bbach

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 2.01.4

    Pros

    Does a fair job with a simple to use intrerface

    Cons

    WARNING!!! Take care ? it is no longer a one off fee. I have had ASO since 2007 and it suddenly stopped working in 2010. When I sent a note to support they tell me that they now want me to pay another $18 plus $16 per year.

    Summary

    You can never be sure when this product will stop working and demand more dollars from you. Avoid.

    "The worst program I've ever used for system utilizing."

    January 27, 2010  |   By mc_universe10

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 2.01.4

    Pros

    Nothing just nothing....

    Cons

    This program made all of my works gone, deleted. All of my bookmarks. Password settings for opera. My windows user settings. And even my homepage in opera. My desktop icons. My uTorrents program and the downloads.

    Summary

    All of my socail media marketing links!!. It didn't even warned me about any backups. It just did its so called cleaning thing I used many system utilizing programs but that is the worst for me from now on. My System Restore Point was on before the program started but it even deleted all of my restore points in windows. Now I have to do all the restoring work manually and this will take weeks. Moreover I have lots of study for my and-of-terms exam. I just can't believe.

    "Nice interface for accessing deep system settings"

    May 28, 2009  |   By lalima

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 2.01.4

    Pros

    Tweaking DEEP settings made EASY! Intuitive interface for customizing settings. from MTU and "critical worker threads" to display options and memory settings. Great registry optimizer

    Cons

    It is hard to get it ALL off of the computer (uninstall will not rid you of it) But the pieces left behind seem innocuous and benign. It has a lot of fluff and useless stuff (sticky notes, organizers) . . .

    Summary

    I ignore the useless fluff and use the powerful deep setting tweaks to fine tune my system. I do wish it could be completely, COMPLETELY removed/uninstalled.

    Summary

    Cons

    "easy to use for someone like me to have"

    August 11, 2008  |   By animekane

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 2.01.4

    Pros

    if you combine this program with R-Wipe & Clean you can clean your memory, junk files, registry and others you can free up you memor hard drive my laptop was running slow 45% after using this program & R-Wipe & Clean my memroy went up to 84 percent this progamis easy & SAFE to use i was nervous when iused the registry option at first but unklike all the other programs with registry deletion, defrag this program deltes the unwanted without effecting your other pregrams or computer system.

    i recomoned this product to anyone who decides to get rid of junk files and others.

    like myself its idiot proof you wont have to worry if your deleting something improtant or not unlike other programs ive tested and crashed my computer becasue of it unlike other programs Advanced System Optimizer brnigs up the safe files, junk files that can be deleted without screwing up your other programs, or computer

    Cons
