    "Spiderware! Stay away!"

    November 17, 2014  |   By okmdiliza

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.588

    Pros

    None! Installing this is like dumping hot syrup all over your motherboard.

    Cons

    This, and everything else made by the Iobit people, is spiderware (crap that invests every nook and cranny of your system, spread webs, act malicious and is difficult to get rid of once you realize what it's doing. When you uninstall it, you don't realize that you are only uninstalling one piece of it. It breaks itself up into several piece when installed so you have to figure out what all of those pieces are to rid yourself of it.

    Summary

    STAY AWAY FROM THIS CRAP OR ANYTHING MADE BY THEM.

    "New black skin is very difficult to read"

    November 16, 2014  |   By dhubhgaill

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.588

    Pros

    The software itself is great, been using it for yearsl

    Cons

    The new 8.0 version has a predominantly black skin (see the examples in screenshots available below) and the white skin previously available is gone. It is nearly impossible to read the dark gray font against the black background. They have an option for a lighter screen, but any tool you choose to run is the dark gray/black scheme. It is difficult to see, especially for those over 30. As a result, I uninstalled the new 8.0 version and reinstalled the old 7.4 Pro version. I can easily see and read the screens using the white background option.

    Summary

    Usually Iobit is great about getting back to customers, but I have contacted them about this issue and no response yet. It really is difficult to see the dark gray against the black. Usually I recommend Advanced System Care to everyone, but not this new version. Screenshots listed below show the problem. Software that is illegible is no better than bad software.

    "Great Product for EVERYONE"

    November 16, 2014  |   By GHW-4

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.588

    Pros

    Have it installed on three lap tops. One XP, one Vista & one Win 7 Home. Boot time is faster on all. We are using the pro version. Some early glitches have been taken care of in the final version. I did a complete install after the test period.

    Cons

    Wish I had found out about it sooner

    Summary

    I would recommend this to every one.

    "Major Issues!!!"

    November 15, 2014  |   By obnoc

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.588

    Pros

    Seemed to find thousands of problems with my computer

    Cons

    After "fixing" my computer's problems, my screens suddenly froze, programs wouldn't open, internet lost, and start-up time was NOT improved. I had to reboot my computer numerous times before I could even open the uninstall programs in my control panel to get this program off my computer. Once it was uninstalled, my computer returned to normal activity.

    Summary

    Don't know why the Advanced SystemCare Free program caused so many problems with my computer but I recommend installing it only at your own risk.

    "Don't waste your time installing this program..!"

    November 15, 2014  |   By yankee07mvp

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.588

    Pros

    It was "free", which is about it's only redeeming asset.

    Cons

    Too numerous to name - see the summary.

    Summary

    Like other reviewers, I found when this software installed, it has a ridiculous amount of ads and that ALONE makes it a totally annoying program to have installed. However, it's also bothersome in more ways than just that. I found it invasive in it's install, seems to want to take control over all parts of one's computer, after which, one's computer slows down doing almost anything. This program is mostly just a burden on one's whole computer operation. Don't waste your time installing this program, for when you want to get it off, (and you will), it's almost impossible to entirely, and cleanly, remove it. It may not be a virus or malware, (although I wouldn't swear that it's not), it's certainly, in my opinion, bloatware..!!!

    "Lot's of paid commenting"

    November 14, 2014  |   By monkeyfurball

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0.3.588

    Pros

    Very little

    Cons

    Too many to count, but mostly the continuous advertising and the difficulty deleting it off your computer once you decide to get rid of it.

    Summary

    Lot's of paid commenting going on here. It's ridiculous all you fakes giving this program 5 stars. This software is extremely bothersome and intrusive with ads popping up all over the place. Stay away.
