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.

"Comprehensive care of the PC"

January 29, 2015  |  By robnel2

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.1.0.652

Pros

Appears to correct and look after a host of issues on two of my PCs - the software corrects a host of issues. Been using it for several years for my now defunct XP PCs. Whilst it is difficult to be definitive - there are influences on a PC- I do think that ASC has a good influence on the computer function. Good reporting on the issues fixed.(It is difficult to carry out a with and without investigation.) I like the reporting panel and issues it I went from the unpaid to the paid version. Very prompt and good email support. this is a good indicator as it implies that the IObit produces good s/w it believes in. Just obtained a third PRO licence for my new Win 7 PC.

Cons

Not really any CONS to report. IObit does try to promote some additional s/w, both paid and unpaid, which I haven't subscribed to as I am always a bit suspicious of too much marketed-s/w.

Summary

A very comprehensive PC care system that appears to help my PC running smoothly.

"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 %&#ยค happend there?" Instead of being upset over the software I feel lucky that it didn't break my win 7 totally.
