Editors' Review

Advanced SystemCare Free is a Swiss Army Knife of a PC utility. It comes with a suite of optimization tools, including an uninstaller, one-click registry fixes, defragmenters, and more.

Pros:

Lots of tools: IOBit's everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach to Advanced SystemCare means you're bound to find something useful for your machine in its massive library of tools, tweakers, and cleaners.

One-click fix: Despite its daunting list of options, users shouldn't have trouble finding some kind of fix-all option. When in doubt, most users will probably opt for just that.

Cons:

Lackluster redesign: Claims of a Metro-friendly redesign amount to nothing more than color changes, font tweaks to a thinner sans-serif type, and icon packs. Many tools are shortcuts to separate applications that are visually inconsistent and offer questionable value over default tools.

Tedious uninstallation: Advanced SystemCare's setup is like a collection of shortcuts to other downloads. SystemCare's toolbox behaves more like a glorified stub installer for IOBit's other products than a true all-in-one program. Even after uninstalling SystemCare, you're forced to uninstall each individual app separately.

Bottom Line:

At first glance, Advanced SystemCare has everything you would think you'd ever need to keep a PC in tip-top shape: uninstallers, driver updaters, and so on. However, not all are better alternatives than their stock counterparts. For example, the Windows 8 Process Explorer is a much more usable solution.

Advanced SystemCare's user experience is a mixed bag. We didn't have any trouble opting for a one-click-fix solution for many of our computer "issues," but we took that option because of information overload.

If you have absolutely no security or tweaking tools, then it might be worth taking a look at Advanced SystemCare. The uninstallation process is tedious and inefficient, because the product treats each feature as a separate app. For defrag tools, malware protection, and even process explorers, we recommend downloading separate alternatives that offer a more focused but higher-quality approach to their respective tasks.

"A Must Have Program"

October 30, 2014  |  By networkguy5

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 7.4.0.474

Pros

Clean, easy to use interface. Includes many other very useful tools, that I use often. Works so well, really keeps my computer running at its best. It can also do a scan in the background, when your system is idle, so in case you forget, you're covered.

Cons

Absolutely none!

Summary

Have been using ASC for many years now - started with the Free version, but soon upgraded to the PRO. Contrary to a previous comment, ASC nor Iobit installs any adware/spyware. The registry scan/clean is my favorite - it has corrected many little annoyances over the years. Due to my excellent experience with ASC, I now also use 5 other Iobit products - and very satisfied with all. Only needed to contact tech support once, and received a very quick and helpful response. And what was totally unexpected, when I went to renew my PRO versions, Iobit offered a great discount!! I have used many, many different utilities over the years, and I honestly have to say that ASC is by far the best!!
