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.

"what was that?"

January 28, 2015  |  By Psycotic_Discord

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.1.0.652

Pros

-Easy to install
-Lots and lots of features.

Cons

-Crashes system
-Lots of badly explained options

Summary

Installed quick and easy.
Started the boot speed scan since I believe much can be done there.
Noticed a general slowdown of the system when 90% done.
Sudden "failed to load XXX.exe" error messages appeared.
System grinds to a halt.
More errors and I notice that explorer.exe stops responding and crashes.
Then my video driver crashes.
Forced to do a hard reboot.
Windows restarts slooooowly. I get a " find out why critical processes are locked to administrators" infobox.
System is unusable and unstable.
Unistalled Advanced system care, rebooted and still had many errors.
Did a system recovery and got rid of the worst ones.
Had to make a repair of my antivirus software which could not load key components.

Sitting here afterwards with a cup of coffee just thinking "what the %&#¤ happend there?" Instead of being upset over the software I feel lucky that it didn't break my win 7 totally.

"Best computer tool ever!!! Safe, efficient, effective!"

January 26, 2015  |  By policar4

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.621

Pros

I have used this for years on several computers - it is safe, fast, easy, and adds years to the life of any computer. Excellent assortment of tools, both proactive and reactive. Free version is wonderful, paid version worth every penny!

Cons

None at all!

"great stuff"

January 25, 2015  |  By cinquestelle

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.621

Pros

- good outfit
- simple and easy
- pretty deep clean and fix

Cons

cpu/ram-"in use" window sometimes doesn't open. And if you expand it, you are nomore able to come back to label and PC (win 7) becomes very slow. Yesterday I had to reboot it a couple of times. Fix it!

Summary

For Windows, a must!! Absolutely the best one.

"Outstanding!"

January 22, 2015  |  By Communicexpert

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.621

Pros

Keeps computer, especially the registry, clean and responsive. VERY intuitive - easy to understand and use.

Cons

None - any difficulties I had with prior versions have been rectified in this newest offering.

Summary

Apart from the operating system, I run my computers strictly on open source, free programs with the lone exception of Advanced System Care. While it is very affordable, it provides invaluable protection and cleaning for any system no matter how old. It even enabled me recently to keep my old XP OS running trouble free after Microsoft abandoned support for it. The simple auto scan mode pretty much runs itself, but there is also an entire toolbox of extra functions nearly all of which are simple to comprehend and use. This is BY FAR the very best of the programs I've found intended to keep a computer clean and trouble-free. I would unhesitatingly recommend it to my own mother if she only knew how to run a computer!

"You just have to click on "Scan" and it does the Rest!"

January 20, 2015  |  By Techwiz48

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.621

Pros

It cleaned up my computer in just minutes. Maybe the first time you might want to watch what it does. I did. You can do whatever you want. You have full control. Now I just click on Scan and let it work in the background. Awesome program.

Cons

None so far!

Summary

I use two other of IObit's products "Driver Booster 2" and IObit Uninstaller" and loved them both so I bought "Advanced System Care 8". So far I have no disappointments. Also I had a question and contacted customer care. They really do care!

"Very nice and touching software for Windows maintenance"

January 18, 2015  |  By robert-07

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.621

Pros

Advanced SystemCare brings together a large number of tools for which you usually need for multiple programs.
The program can be used almost automatically, once it is set up properly then everything automatically.
The basic settings are usually already good for most systems.
Press the scan button, let it auto-repairing and your system will be fine.

Cons

I actually have no negative issues yet encountered on Advanced SystemCare

Summary

Have Advanced SystemCare for several years with good success on already more than six computers running in our home environment, have since I use ASC much less time spent, and wasted, on maintenance of our computers, the Pro version is indeaal for the operating system of a PC and to keep windows in order and out of problems, such as fail or system crash.
Crashing Windows system now happened rarely, I use it on multiple versions of Windows.
I have in the past tried many tools to support Windows smoothly and to avoid errors, the most convenient and most complete in my view is Advanced SystemCare.
I recommend Advanced SystemCare to all my acquaintances and friends, for keeping their Windows computer "up to date" and to be able to continue working without problems.

"attenzione al sistema usatelo con il cervello"

January 18, 2015  |  By piranha69

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.621

Pros

utile ,poi ha anche l'antivirus ,cosa che mancava nelle altre versioni
hanno aggiunto il cattura immagine ,sempre utile per il supporto
uninstall programmi, ottimo
driver booster,ottimo
game booster ,ottimo
smart defrag,ottimo

Cons

antivirus e anti malware sono da migliorare.consiglio di installare un antivirus senza protezione reale ,per sicurezza ,e un malware senza protezione reale .è sconsigliato, come fanno in molti di usare 2 antivirus ,e 2 antimalware .
consiglierei un generatore di password con opzioni varie ,tipo tastiera virtuale per digitare la password .consiglierei una programmazione delle scansioni più ampia ,cioè una settimana ,ogni 15 giorni ,una volta al mese .

Summary

usatelo ,ma usatelo con il cervello .non badate alle faccine se triste o felice .io uso ASC da anni ,avevo l'abitudine di usarlo quotidianamente .questo mi è costato il sistema w 7 .oppure, se lo usate spesso ,fate sempre un backup dati .però un ottimmizzatore lo si deve usare ogni 15 giorni ,meglio UNA VOLTA AL MESE per scansioni profonde .per il resto Drive booster ,smart defrag,si possono programmare.

"Solid Product"

January 16, 2015  |  By EddieGTI

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.621

Pros

Good performance
Myriad of features
Great value
Keeps PC running happy
1 license for 3 PCs

Cons

Full Virus Scans can take several hours

Summary

The interface is slick. This makes using a utility software fun. The 'Care' feature is - what I think - the go-to-tool for me. The tool arsenal contains things like Privacy Sweep, Spyware Removal, Disk / System Optimizations, and other key components. I purchased the 'Ultimate' package because it adds the Virus Protection. Previously, I would use 3 or 4 different utility softwares to keep my PC running smoothly. It was cumbersome, annoying, complicated, and just plain too much. I wanted an all-in-one maintenance program that can provide all the protection. Enter Advanced SystemCare Ultimate. Look no further.
