Editors' Review

+

This utility offers a one-stop-shop for cleaning and maintaining your computer for better overall system performance. The interface is very simple, featuring only a few buttons, which makes it easy to get down to cleaning immediately (in fact, it automatically runs on start-up) and doesn't confuse you with multiple steps.

The Maintain Windows section focuses on four areas of maintenance: spyware removal, Registry cleaning, a privacy sweep, and deletion of junk files. The Diagnose System button provides system optimization tools, detects spyware, defragments your disk, and scans for hijacked Windows settings. In our tests the scan and clean for each of these areas took less than 10 minutes to complete. In many of these scans, it is difficult to tell what exactly is being accomplished by some of the tools, but we were able to test against other trusted apps, which confirmed Advanced SystemCare's efficacy in those areas.

Under the utilities section you are given several tools, which are similar to plug-ins, for other areas of optimization and diagnostic tests. Overall, Advanced SystemCare Free is a good way to maintain your system's speed and clear out junk files, but you'll need to remember to run it regularly because scheduling of scans is only available in the paid Pro version.

"a good free program"

February 12, 2010  |  By Derek59

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 3.4.2

Pros

a good program for people who are not to sure what to clean out of the computer it doesn't clean everything but what do you expect from a free version. I have now upgraded and the full version is naturally 100% better and my computer runs like new

Cons

no comment

Summary

I don't have to worry anymore about looking for where the bottleneck in my system is and why it is ruuning slow, I wouldn;t be able to find these problems unless I was a computer expert which I am not

"i love this software"

February 11, 2010  |  By lexsite

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 3.4.2

Pros

It does most basic maintenance functions quickly and easily. Cleans temp files, defrags (must faster than windows defrag program), cleans registry safely, and other optimizations that speed up your computer.

Cons

when a newer version comes out, instead of updating automatically from the interface, you have to go online and download the new version and reinstall it.

Summary

Great software! I suggest it for everyone who has Windows installed on their computer.

"Pro version is better!"

February 11, 2010  |  By presto45

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 3.4.2

Pros

Paid for the pro version and it steps up to the mark for optimisation and security, very happy.

Cons

Zilch, none, nothing!

Summary

The scheduled scan is a plus and privacy sweeper works fine at every startup. The smart ram also seems to take it up a notch as well. What i paid for was well worth it!

"multi-purpose, fast, & reliable however no instructions"

February 10, 2010  |  By naftaadb

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 3.4.2

Pros

liberates extra space on disk, degrags, optimizes cpu and offers unique functions that should be standard.

Cons

No information: how many times a week, what to do with "possible infected files", why are there so many files to degrag every day etc.

Summary

Curious, but I thought it would raise my performance score.
