Editors' Review

+

Advanced SystemCare Free is a popular system cleaner and optimizer. For version 8, IObit has added Uninstaller 4 and the boot-boosting and browser-protecting Startup Manager. The Toolbox, Turbo Boost, Performance Monitor widget, and other SystemCare stalwarts have been upgraded, and new Classic and Readable skin options enhance the app-like layout.

Pros

System security: Advanced SystemCare 8 Free includes interesting security features like Homepage Protection, System Reinforce, and Surfing Protection, in addition to malware, spyware, and junk file cleaners.

One-click scans: Fast scans, deep cleaning, single-click performance, and Internet and security boosting make this software a joy to use, especially once you've configured each one-click tool's options to suit your needs.

Toolbar/Plug-In cleaner: Advanced SystemCare 8 integrates IObit Uninstaller's Toolbar/Plug-In cleaner, which not only removes browser barnacles but also helps protect against them.

PC Health and Performance Monitor: Emoticons communicate your PC's performance and security status when you mouse over the PC Health icon. Expand the desktop Performance Monitor for details.

Cons

Pro features: Some tools and features in Advanced SystemCare 8's menus aren't available in the free version.

Multiple uninstall: We're pleased that this software includes IObit Uninstaller and other extras, but these should also uninstall as they were installed -- all at once instead of piecemeal.

Bottom Line

Advanced SystemCare 8 Free bundles various security- and performance-boosting tools. The Pro upgrade adds some coveted features, but the Free tool will meet your essential needs.

March 29, 2015  |  By Mochaman42

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.1.0.652

Pros

I judge a company not only by it's product quality but also by the quality of it's support. ACS has demonstrated prompt, quality support of their products during my recent crisis. Thanks for being a cut above the rest.

Cons

There are no issues.

Summary

A Quality product coupled with quality support is a definite winner!

"Happy user!"

March 25, 2015  |  By TigerDon74

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.1.0.652

Pros

I actually use the pro version. What I say is equally applicable to the free version. IObit has developed a user friendly interface of Scan, Protect and Action Center which makes sense and maybe familiar to the user as it is common to other IObit products. The Tool Box provides many different functions that I have not seen in similar products. I find it competent and easy to use.

Cons

None that I could find.

"I would and do recommend ASC to everyone"

March 21, 2015  |  By 651sweeper

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.1.0.652

Pros

ASC is easy to use and has kept my 3 pc's running well for a number of years now.
I have read the negative comments left but I have never had any negative occurance while using ASC. I used the free version for a while then upgraded to pro and it was the best thing I done as I got even more features and tools wrapped in a user friendly bundle, one click and ASC takes over and keepsthe pc healthy and happy. All my famioly and freinds use ASC and they have never told me of any negatives happenning to their pc's

Cons

Have not encountered any cons so far and have been using this product for years.

Summary

ASC in my view is one of the top rated maintenance tools on the market I personally swear by it and I can quite easily recommend this to everyone who has a pc as I truly beleive in this product as it has never ever let me down

"DO NOT INSTALL"

March 18, 2015  |  By OmegaShock.com

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.1.0.652

Pros

It might work for you. It might.

Cons

Installs spyware and uses devious software practices. And, it slows down your system.

Summary

I hate sneaky and devious behavior at the best of times, but this application really 'takes the cake'. I don't care how good a program this is, or how much it will do for you - if it doesn't let you say 'good bye'.

When you install this program, it will insert parts of itself into your system that you not be able to get rid of without time-consuming effort. And, you run the risk of damaging your system in the process.

Do not install.

You've been warned.

"Ignore the lower ratings, you cannot fault this product"

March 09, 2015  |  By nchap5254

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.1.0.652

Pros

Very easy to use, and, covers everything you are likely to need to ensure the smooth running of your system in today's working environment. The Free version is comprehensive enough for anyone's use and the pro version, which is extremely cheap for what it is provides extra tweeking for the geekier community. The customer service is excellent and I have never has a problem with this product in the 3 years that I have been using it. Infact, it is the first thing I download if I buy a new machine.

Cons

I really can't think of any !

Summary

Excellent for the money if you choose to buy Pro, beyond good if you choose the free product as you couldn't ask for more.

"One click is all it takes..."

February 26, 2015  |  By hubert5158

Pros

Advanced SystemCare automates a lot of chores into a simple and easy to use interface.

Cons

Slightly slows the initial boot, but not enough to matter.

Summary

I really missed it when I swapped computers in the den. Advanced SystemCare let me swap it to new computer and I am pleased.

"I regret buying this"

February 22, 2015

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.1.0.652

Pros

It gives you lots of features to use, antivirus, system tweak, etc

Cons

It's one big advertisement. Even though I paid for the Total care package, half of the features and additional downloads, that also require payment. It's the app you never stop paying for. I regret paying for this app, full of "Activate now" buttons and ads everywhere, even though I paid for Total care....

Summary

Cool features, but deceitful business plan. If I had the chance to refund my purchase, I would.
