Editors' review

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.

Final Verdict:

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.

    "You wil not be disappointed"

    July 24, 2014   |   By Bill_Rabara

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 7.3.0.457

    Pros

    1.One click fix to many many problems you didn't know you had
    2. Insanely abundant amount of tools
    3. Value - only 20 bucks for a tool that will certainly speed up your computer.

    Cons

    Nothing notable

    Summary

    Do not let the editor's review dissuade you, Advanced System Care (especially the pro version) is killer. It's amazing how many awesome tools there are to do everything from uninstall programs (awesome feature, it makes sure it removes all remenants of an install) to defrag the registry to fight malware real-time to smartly defrag your hard drive ..like in 5 minutes. Advances System Care is aces.

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 7.3.0.457

    Pros

    Easy Interface, lots of tools, short learning curve

    Summary

    I have been using another program for over five years. This is the best $20 software I have ever made! It is a very comprehensive software program that keeps my (your) PC running smoothly. The interface is user friendly and it doesn't require a long learning curve to understand or to use. I would recommend Advanced System Care to everyone.

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 7.3.0.457

    Pros

    I have been using ASC Pro for over a year (started with the free vesion and liked it so much I bought the Pro) Being in IT a lot of the problems that people come to me about their PC's ASC Pro will take care of. (Slow, freeses, lock ups, etc.etc.) ASC will cure tese and many other problems. The best $20 investment I have made in a while! It is a very comprehinsive tool to keep your PC running smothly. The interface is user friendly and does't require a degree to understand or to use. Very user friendly!

    Cons

    None at all!

    Summary

    I highly recommend this product to anyone that has a PC. Try the free version for a while and I am certain you will see the benefit of going Pro!

    "It Has Hosed My System Twice and a Second Computer"

    July 03, 2014   |   By jycnan

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 7.3.0.456

    Pros

    It does clean your computer effectively.

    Cons

    SPIGOT, which comes bundled with it, which I believe they are calling Maleware, which I agree with. I believe there's something else bundled in there besides IObit Maleware, which I loved. With the Surf Protection Extension on, Chrome crashed constantly, we're talking a dozen times a day, until I figured out what was causing it. Then how to get rid of it. I'd turn it off and delete it and it would reappear the next boot. I finally figured out how to permanently stop it.

    Spigot changed my browser settings. I search exclusively from Google and seriously get annoyed when that changes. I really hate ads, therefore you can guess how I feel about programs that install programs just so they can show me more ads.

    I loved IObytes, until I found Malewarebytes, which is a much stronger program.

    Summary

    I actually do like the basic program without all the additional crude. I also downloaded this from IObits. IObits was supposed to be wonderful. However, can I get another maleware fighter? Malewarebytes fit the bill and works better. I have run both of those side by side, and IObits lost. Malewarebytes finds everything first. It also has a surfing protection feature and just blocks the loading of certain pages.

    Are there other defraggers out there? Absolutely.

    Now, if you can get a copy of this without the SPIGOT programs and SweetSpot (?) added, I would definitely consider it. It is easy. I just don't 'live' without my Chrome
