Editors' Review

+

This easy-to-use and informative application cleans, configures, and optimizes your PC. Advanced WindowsCare Pro's interface dispenses with the bells and whistles to display commands and data without embellishment.

The install Wizard zips through the set up, querying the user on the PC's primary use and Internet connection type. Answer those two simple questions, choose from a short list of options, and you're ready to virus check and scan for spyware, registry errors, and start-up problems, or clean your PC of history and surfing traces. The app's strength is the detailed information the scan provides, which lists each item with a description of its value based on trustworthiness. Unknown items can be identified online or ignored. The Tools menu checks five primary areas of your PC for rogue processes, services, and incorrectly installed options.

Since registry entries are involved, we wish the fixes recommended were more detailed. The program includes a quick restore point option for system safety, but repairs can't be made in the trial edition, drastically circumscribing the app's effectiveness unless you buy it sight unseen. The app's uncomplicated and straightforward usage is appreciated, but the since the main selling point has been cut off at the knees, we're hesitant to give this a more glowing recommendation.

"Set it and Forget it!"

June 23, 2009  |  By ers2258

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Pro 3.3.1

Pros

It simply works! No fussing around or constant tinkering with the program.

Cons

None as of yet.

Summary

I was a BETA Tester for this software when it was first introduced. I don't often even bother with anything that is BETA but I am glad I did with this software.
I have had it on my XP system ever since and, so far, Idont know how I did without it.
It works automatically! That's all. I don't have to babysit this software.
I set and forgot about it. This really keeps my XP system in top shape.
I tell everyone about it and recommend it to all.

"With ASC Pro I saw the difference immediately."

June 21, 2009  |  By folren

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Pro 3.3.1

Pros

I have used many Registry Cleaners, such as: RegCure, RegTool, Ashampoo, ASO, AVO, Tuning 2009, jv16 Power Tools, etc. but none of them does the job good, some of them even ruin your Registry!!.

Cons

Only one! Why if you buy this program is it only for one PC and not for more? I have namely one PC (Desktop) and a Laptop.

Summary

Advanced SystemCare Pro is an excellent program, it does the job perfectly, it looks modern and has a lot of utilities.CHAPEAU!! At last a good Registry Cleaner Program.

"Help Contents was poor"

June 10, 2009  |  By iamconan

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Pro 3.3.1

Pros

For the time I used it, the software worked fine, with a few exceptions.

Cons

When you click the help tab, you are directed to the home web page and it is up to you to find the info, which is nearly impossible. Some icons do not work (backup-under admin tab), and it is impossible to find the instructions under help.

Summary

1) $19 for 1 computer, not 3, one!
2) No standard help file, as with other software's. Click the help button and you are directed to the home web page, then it is up to you to try to figure out how to find your answer.
3) Most of the functions work, but a couple I clicked did not do anything. Since I could not find an answer to what was suppose to occur, I would say the button did not work properly.

To be fair, I did not contact tech support to see the turn around time in a question being submitted. I was upset over not being able to review the help file on the software itself.

"c|net's description and review is WAY out of date here."

May 16, 2009  |  By MTN-Mountain

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Pro 3.3.1

Pros

The trial version does way more than the above c|net description says, and it isn't limited in the way c|net say it is. I'll write a better review when I get time. I just bought it yesterday, and have only tried the trial version for few days.

Cons

The current $19.95 is for only a year license for 1 PC. I don't think you would have to remove it. LOL You should see c|net's info and the reviews for the free version at http://download.cnet.com/Advanced-SystemCare-Free/3000-2086_4-10407614.html

Summary

I probably should just tell you to not waste your time with c|net's review, above on this page, and go directly to the free version's review on the page I indicated in the "Cons:" area, above.

On this page, c|net is still even calling this software "Advanced WindowsCare Pro," when the name has been changed to "Advanced SystemCare Pro," or ASC Pro.

Above, c|net said, "and you're ready to virus check." I would NOT call this a virus checking or anti-virus software of any kind. It will help a lot with spyware and, somewhat, help with malware. It will help you make your system faster and run smarter. It also has several tools, like IObit's SmartDefrag, which are included. There's also a RAM optimizer to give you a good deal more free available RAM.

c|net said, "but repairs can't be made in the trial edition." That is totally not true. The free version can repair many things. It found over 7,000 items it could (optionally), fix on my system, 419 in the registry alone. Things like references to missing files or older software I had removed. I manually and painstakingly checked every one of those 419 items ASC Free found, and the software was right on EVERY ONE. (That 419 number is amazing since I already use registered copies of Uniblue's Registry Booster 2 and Advanced System Optimizer's Registry Cleaner and Fixer software. They are supposed to keep my registry clean of this kind of crap that ASC Free found. Jeese!) However, the (currently $19.95) paid for version, or ASC Pro, would find even more repairs, according to their web page info at http://www.iobit.com/upgradepro.html and work more deeply to optimize the PC.

If you REALLY want to get into evaluating this software and the company, IObit, join in their forums at http://forums.iobit.com/. That's what I did and I was happy to see a company that truly tries to help their customers and pays attention to their suggestions, concerns, problems, and/or complaints. I also see a lot of happy customers there, and some knowledgeable people besides employees helping out. Additionally, I see questions getting answered quickly and concerns addressed quickly. Even in the early years of computing, this kind of attention wasn't easy to find. So, besides being a great piece of software, it appears to be a great company with a great company ethic, too.

Now, one word of caution. Do NOT click that big "Care" button in the center of their interface until AFTER you've read their instructions and gotten more familiar with this software. Clicking it will immediately clean and repair EVERYTHING. You should first do the scans and review the suggested repairs.
