    March 18, 2012  |   By bigrigman7

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 5.1

    Pros

    Great interface, several options including automatic restore, precise, professional & easy to operate!

    Cons

    I was under the impression that the dnld would only be 28 mbs but it ended up at 90 mbs which isn't bad considering al of the usable features.

    Summary

    So far I've noticed significant improvement in, especially page dnlds. It gave my pc 75% of it's life back! Great software & I strongly recommend it for registry cleaning, windows updates & a host of other tasks. You'll be happy with this one!! Unbelievable!!

    "It WORKS! EASY to Use. FAST! Doesn't Hog Resources!"

    March 17, 2012  |   By FreewareOnly

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 5.1

    Pros

    Easy to Use. All the Tools Work. Doesn't hog resources. Download it. Get the Upgrade. Install It. Get On With Your Life. Trust Me!

    Ps. It's got some NICE TOOLS... I don't have time to go into it all... Trust Me!

    Cons

    I'm working on it...

    Summary

    Did you ever notice how XP seems to develop a lag with it's operations. For instance Click on Start, Click on Programs... I don't know about you but it would take quite a while before my Programs showed up on the screen. Things always seemed to be churning. Even with a competitor product that I had been using for years... SS12... it was getting worse. SS12 itself seemed to be bogging things down. Some of their apps were having issues. I had to uninstall it and get a refund.

    I installed ASC and inside of 2 days paid for the upgrade. I knew it was going to work for me and it has. My "Programs" pop on to the screen a lot faster, very noticeable. That's my benchmark. If that's working fine then I know everything else is going to be snappy as well... and it is.

    I also use the Unlocker... finally one that works great. I can now move multiple Quicktime files, unlocking them all, and moving them all, instead of one at a time... I use the Uninstaller. I'm not using the Malware fighter. I'm trying out Avast at this time.

    Got to keep it short now... got to go eat... GET ASC! GET THE UPGRADE. MAKE THINGS A LITTLE SMOOTHER AND FASTER FOR YOURSELF. XP needs all the help it can get... who's not with me on that???

    ASC WORKS!

    "Great Product!"

    March 17, 2012  |   By rrshep-2009

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 5.1

    Pros

    This product runs really fast and cleans up all those registry, privacy, and temp files. Luckily it hasn't found any viruses or trojans on my laptops yet because I had good anti-virus software. One of my laptops ran extremely slow and it now runs much faster.

    Cons

    None found so far.

    "Solution: Advanced SystemCare Free 5.1 - Excellent"

    March 16, 2012  |   By barrington thompson

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Free 5.1

    Pros

    It probably is the best free all in one Tune-up Software.

    It warns users that solid state drives should not (never) be de-fragmented (because, it substantially reduce the life) with consistent use.

    The colour scheme blue = free (features).

    The ORANGE(features):
    1) Keeps annoyingly asking to pay to be upgrade to the Pro version
    2) For example reduced from about 1,132 to 820

    But, the BLUE features carried out a proper job and cleared all.

    Based on some reviews the free version maybe better than the Pro version despite the hype.

    Cons

    1: Wasted vast amounts of time to be able to use it properly and side step the spam/phishing trying to get me to pay for the Pro version.

    Like most things there was a simple solution choose the blue features only.

    Summary

    Some of the things I do:

    I now use it with usually; 1) CCleaner, 2) Defraggler, (Norton Utility Disk is probably useless (in my opinion) got free when purchased Norton Internet Security 2011), 3) Start\Run Box\ Pre-fetch\Delete Files\, 4)Start\Run Box\%temp%\Delete Files, 5) Right Click my main C:\ (drive)\Properties and use; 5a)Disk Clean-up and 5b)More Options, 5c)Tools Error-checking

    Before I forget, I would normally always clean until junk is cleared first and only then de-fragment hard disk drives (HDD), because faster, but, now NEVER de-fragment a Solid State Drive (SSD). Best practice is also to de-fragment before downloading a large application on a HDD.

    There are other things I do:
    6a) Reduce files in the start-up program - Start\Run box\MSConfig
    6b) The problem which I then have is how do I find out which things can be safely deleted or disabled. But, one of the website which I use is http://www.processlibrary.com/directory/m/1/
    7) Some other diagnostic tools which I use are;
    7a) YouTube, 7b)Companies purchased products (Purchased computer from, Internet Security company) - 7c)Reduce price of telephone calls where possible; use www.saynoto0870.com, 7d)Get one department, to transfer calls to another department,
    7e) Websites (including Chat and Forums), Searching for information about words or things using a browser for example Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.
    8)The last thing which I want to mention is the help feature within applications are useful: for example if I had a Microsoft's Word problem I also have the two options; Help feature and in Office 2007 Office (red,yellow,green and blue - top left hand corner) button and going into 'Word Option'.
