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.

    "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    Do not trust it to download and install missing drivers or to replace outdated ones. I let ASO 'scan for missing and outdated drivers' and it mucked up all of my display drivers.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.

    "Simple to use and reliable!"

    April 21, 2014   |   By frankmart252

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.5.1000.15646

    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

    Nothing yet.

    "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.

    "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.

    "The Good the Bad and the Ugly"

    February 09, 2014   |   By wataview

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.5.1000.15646

    Pros

    Bought the Pro version a while back. Seems to do a good job of cleaning up and making things run better.

    Cons

    Will not find and get rid of the adware, homepage hijackers,and search engine hijackers that this website gives you whenyou download anything.I-Orbit's Malware Fighter doesn't find that stuff either.

    Summary

    Most websites you can download software from try to load you up with this "malware". They get paid by the promaters of this junkware. However, if you are very careful to uncheck all the little boxes. You may be able to download some useful software and avoid most of the crap. Won't be to suprized if this never gets posted.

    "Should return to the dark bunghole it crawled out of."

    January 13, 2014   |   By ScurvyCharlie

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.5.1000.15646

    Pros

    Pros? With this, there are none.

    Cons

    I found it through a free tech support. I had gotten on the tech support for Omnitech to get help with recripting a double-click button on my new 7 button gaming mouse, and all he wanted to do was install this crap software as if that would fix my problem, when the issue had NOTHING to do with my system at all, just the actual act of recripting a button that just double clicks.
