    "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!!!

    "I Must Be Missing Something!"

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.1.648.6846

    Pros

    This good all-in-one optimizing tool has already replaced my Spyware Doctor, Captain Optimizer, and Registry Commander. It would replace my Diskeeper Defragmenter; but, I have been with them too many years to give them up.

    Cons

    I see no 'cons' to this product at all.

    Summary

    I think the product works well and in some cases, better than advertised. I feel for the folks having problems with the program; but, my system (which wasn't looking for help to begin with) seems to like Advanced System Optimizer 3.1.

    "DON'T DO IT!!!"

    June 5, 2012  |   By bxyzk

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.1.648.6846

    Pros

    Appears to have everything you need to fix or improve your PC but....

    Cons

    My PC started freezing up 3-4 times a day after using AOS. Nothing CCleaner and Windows built-in Disk Defragmenter can't do. I had to restore from a prior restore point to get my machine back to the way it was. Paid $49 for a 3-machine license and Herman Street wouldn't give me a refund!!

    Summary

    Learn from my mistake... do not let it optimize your system. You have been warned!! If you insist on doing so, I have a 3-PC license that I can sell you for half the price ;-)

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.1.648.6846

    Pros

    All the utilities in the software are very useful and effective.

    Cons

    Not any for the moment.

    Summary

    If you go to purchase all the utilities in here seperately then the cost will be approximately 10-15 times more...Huge collection of useful tools for a very nominal price....Amazing!!

    "I use it frequently, once a week."

    August 16, 2011  |   By TRI4

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.1.648.6846

    Pros

    Simple to use. Makes my PC run faster, I usually can tell the speed difference, it becomes sluggish when I don't use it to clean out.

    Cons

    The process is a little slow but the result is worth the wait.

    Summary

    It does what I wanted from it

    "Slow but good problem finder."

    July 20, 2011  |   By Arisen_ninja

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.1.648.6846

    Pros

    Detects things that other system care, error, virus, and other detectors doesn't detect.

    Cons

    Takes way too long to scan and fix certain things.

    Summary

    I would only use ASO if you have lots of patients.
