Advanced SystemCare Free

CNET 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.

    "SYSTEM CRASH - A USER PROBLEM NOT A PRODUCT PROBLEM!!!"

    February 5, 2011  |   By TerryDeeAZ

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 3.7.2

    Pros

    I tried Advance System Care for FREE and liked it so much I decided I wanted to Automate some of the manual features and decided it was well worth buying. I personally use it on my 3 home computers plus my work computers and gave copies to 2 friends.

    Cons

    The only CON I can come up with is in the ignorant users who want to bash ASC obviously without knowing how to use the product, which is pretty simple. I am not affiliated with ASC and am truly a user and think this is the one everyone should have.

    Summary

    Keeps my computer functioning fast. The reports generated are very useful on "HIJACK THIS" and other sites. I recommend this to everyone I know and make it a requirement for everyone connecting to my office network. In addition to having purchased Advance System Care, I have purchased ASC 360 for my Internet Surfing. HAPPY CUSTOMER HERE. I would tell you that if you want it to even be smoother, don't be afraid to BUY it because then you can make it all happen automatically and forget that you have a fortress working behind the scenes for you. THIS SHOULD BE A REQUIRED INSTALL BY ALL COMPUTER MANUFACTURERS...ESPECIALLY THOSE OF US WHO USE A PC.

    "Absolutely amazing"

    February 4, 2011  |   By crazyVIDSguy

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 3.7.2

    Pros

    This improves my system quite a bit, it cleaned my registry, defragged my hard drive, removed spyware, optimized it peak performance. I also love the Turbo Boost feature.

    Cons

    Doesn't completely defrag my hard drive, but that is not the fauly of the software.

    Summary

    One of the best softwares I use, it stopped my computer from crashing and sped it way up.

    "Great free software from IObit"

    December 14, 2010  |   By Rayquaza_384

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 3.7.2

    Pros

    >One-click maintenance is really convenient.
    >The default settings are great for me, meaning that I don't need to edit them to satisfy my computer needs.
    >Their SmartRam utility is doing wonders for me.

    Cons

    >t's better if ASC is more of a "standalone" product because it relies on other IObit products. (But I do like SmartDefrag)
    >You need to buy the PRO version for the "auto care" function. You just install then let the program do it for you.

    Summary

    Overall, I would recommend this to my friend if they want their PCs to be faster.
