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.

"A great Program"

November 21, 2014  |  By fossilcar

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.588

Pros

Does what it says it will do and does it well.

Cons

None that I can find.

Summary

Been using ASC since "Vista". Started with the free edition, it worked better that the 2 paid ones I was using so I switched to the PRO edition and haven't looked back. Buy the PRO Edition, use it, keep your computer happy. You won't be disappointed.

"Slowed Internet pages from opening"

November 21, 2014  |  By SleepNumber

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.588

Pros

It appeared to find many things wrong but all of these free programs seem to do that.

Cons

Slowed my In ternet surfing to a crawl. The minute I uninstalled the program everything went back to normal.

Summary

I may install the free version, clean it, and then deleate it as again it was a week of dial up speeds on some sites. The same sites after I uninstalled this program came up in 1 or 2 seconds as apposed to the 15 or 20 second wait I was experiencing.

"Piece of crap should be considered malware/virus"

November 20, 2014  |  By echacon59

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.588

Pros

None. You might as well scramble your registry and remove services willy-nilly.

Cons

I actually bought this piece of crap (for not much money). Running a scan of my system completely trashed it. Everything became unusable. It took control of every part of my computer and was very hard to get rid of the entire thing. I think they call that a virus, no?

Summary

Don't waste your money on this malicious software, unless you want to spend a whole day formatting your drive and installing windows and all your applications.

"Beware! Can cause big problems"

November 18, 2014  |  By BJulianBaker

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.588

Pros

Hard to find any. It doesn't do what it claims and lies about problems discovered.

Cons

Claims to find and remove files which often don't exist. Recently claimed to find 1473 registry errors, "fixed" them and left the PC with major problems. Hadn't created a system restore point. Luckily I had and had a clone backup but wasted a lot of time.

Summary

Touch only with long barge pole.

"Spiderware! Stay away!"

November 17, 2014  |  By okmdiliza

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.588

Pros

None! Installing this is like dumping hot syrup all over your motherboard.

Cons

This, and everything else made by the Iobit people, is spiderware (crap that invests every nook and cranny of your system, spread webs, act malicious and is difficult to get rid of once you realize what it's doing. When you uninstall it, you don't realize that you are only uninstalling one piece of it. It breaks itself up into several piece when installed so you have to figure out what all of those pieces are to rid yourself of it.

Summary

STAY AWAY FROM THIS CRAP OR ANYTHING MADE BY THEM.

"New black skin is very difficult to read"

November 16, 2014  |  By dhubhgaill

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.588

Pros

The software itself is great, been using it for yearsl

Cons

The new 8.0 version has a predominantly black skin (see the examples in screenshots available below) and the white skin previously available is gone. It is nearly impossible to read the dark gray font against the black background. They have an option for a lighter screen, but any tool you choose to run is the dark gray/black scheme. It is difficult to see, especially for those over 30. As a result, I uninstalled the new 8.0 version and reinstalled the old 7.4 Pro version. I can easily see and read the screens using the white background option.

Summary

Usually Iobit is great about getting back to customers, but I have contacted them about this issue and no response yet. It really is difficult to see the dark gray against the black. Usually I recommend Advanced System Care to everyone, but not this new version. Screenshots listed below show the problem. Software that is illegible is no better than bad software.
