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.

    "Great Product"

    February 12, 2011  |   By Grandong_Mules

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 3.7.3

    Pros

    It did improve pc's performance. I've tested and use it on my old machine. Not the best system optimizer tool out there I guess, but absolutely worth a commendation for it's price.

    Cons

    Not found yet.

    "Pure Joy to use!"

    February 7, 2011  |   By MiladyDoyle1

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 3.7.3

    Pros

    This product saved some files on my PC, when it was about to totally break down from a major registry problem. Not only did it fix the problem, this sucker acts as if it were new again. I am typing on it now, one year after the fix.

    Cons

    I have never found anything not to love about this or any other of their products, I upgraded 3 of my pc's to their pro ASC as well as use their great gaming booster on all my pc,s as well as my laptop. Their Defrag is way better then windows.

    Summary

    IF YOU want to have a SAFE and easy, no brain way to enhance your pc, or if you are having problems with your computer actting as if it has a monkey wrench in it's motherboard, I really do fell this is a great safe product to have. I have used their products for right at 5 years and have never had any problems. I have seen some have tryed to tash this product and I really am shocked. Most do not even say why it's so called unsafe. Readers please relize not all that written Good or bad is always true. You must make up your own minds. But please try their free items and see for your selfs this is truely a great product, as all of their items I own. I really feel some are trying to give bad press to a small company for reasons only they know, and to me based on my knowlage of IObit products, the bad press seems out of spite for what ever reasons I do not know, but something is off with these unhelpful so called reveiws, it's not enought to just write, It's unsafe. One must write WHY they feell it's unsafe. As for me, I have nothing but HIGH praise for ALL their products!

    "Great program for daily use"

    February 7, 2011  |   By MattIcuts2

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 3.7.3

    Pros

    This software is light-weight in terms of opera-bility and manuver-ability, process-wise this program runs cleanly and effeciently.
    Couldn't ask for anything more.

    Cons

    I do not like the fact that if I choose to remove the check box on the Start with windows startup checkbox, that it remains in my loading scheme and continues to ignore my prefrences.

    Summary

    Overall the program is excellent, it does it's job and can add the boost of preformance necessary to create an exceptional working enviornment.

    "Very Good Product"

    February 6, 2011  |   By RozezRed63

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 3.7.3

    Pros

    I use this every day. It works quite well and does help keep my computer running well. I use it every time I uninstall programs, to keep the register cleaned up.

    Cons

    There are only two things; I have to run the register cleaner twice. That is make sure it found everything. And sometime it does not load at start-up of my computer. But those are very Minor.

    Summary

    I was using the free verision of the this program, but LIKED it so much I bought the full paid version.

    VERY GOOD PRODUCT!!!

    "Advanced System Care Is Safe and a Must Have"

    February 5, 2011  |   By TerryDeeAZ

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 3.7.3

    Pros

    I tried ASC for about 6 months and liked it so much that the few features unavailable as "Automatic" in the Free Version inspired me to buy it for myself and two business partners computers. ITS GREAT!

    Cons

    To be honest, I have no complaints and think Advanced System Care is a must have for all computers ... especially those of us who PC. It saves you from headaches.

    Summary

    I would and do recommend this product to all my friends. I encourage them to try it for free, but to not be afraid to invest the $19.99 to buy it so they can simply install it and forget it. I liked it so much I got the 360 for my on-line work too. Great Product 5 Stars times 2

    Pros
