    "Avoid this malware s/w"

    January 29, 2015  |   By dragon789wv

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.1.0.652

    Pros

    Installs easily

    Cons

    Lots of crap malware added that you most likely do NOT want, s/w was hard to uninstall or get rid of. I finally had to REFORMAT my hard drive and reinstall everything! ASC installed software that took over many of my usual software, and I could NOT get back to the software that I WANT to use, not their *!&@^%! crap!
    I have used Advanced System Care for years, and it's slowly deteriorated over the years.
    I have removed it from all 3 of my computers. Really disgusted with how a previously good software that I recommended to others and now... a piece of crap!

    Summary

    Do NOT install, unless you enjoy reformat your hard drive and restoring all your original software and then getting it back to where you were - 12 hours ago!
    AVOID this piece of CRAP!!!

    "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.
