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.

    "Good Product"

    November 27, 2011   |   By halfbreed52

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Pro 5.0.0.158

    Pros

    Fixes all kinds of annoying little Anomolies.
    Also has very useful tool called Security holes fixer.

    Cons

    DO NOT UPGRADE you computer! For some reason whenever you do this you have to pay for the product AGAIN!!

    Summary

    As long as you keep the same computer...I give it 4 thumbs up :)

    "WARNING!!!"

    November 26, 2011   |   By drgrinchman

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Pro 5.0.0.158

    Pros

    None, don't risk it.

    Cons

    Windows Live Mail, copy/paste both stopped working as soon as I ran the first scan! Took me all day and a couple system restores to figure it out.

    Summary

    As soon as I ran a scan of the registry, it found problems (800+) and it disabled Windows Live Mail as well as the ability to PASTE in any way or any program.Bugs need to be addressed before releasing this product to the public. Not disappointed...MAD! I have been a paying and faithful user for years of other versions, even though this is not the first problem I've had with this product.

    Updated on Nov 27, 2011

    Sorry, I have calmed down since this last post. I use Vista Home Premium, I forgot to mention, and I narrowed it down to the Registry scan. Everything else seemed to work fine. Other than this issue, I have loved this product, even the free version, but this seemed inexcusable. I uninstalled version 5 and went back to using version 4 for now. Glad to answer any questions...Good luck.

    "Absolutely One of The BEST of it's kind"

    November 25, 2011   |   By gringoviejo49

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Pro 5.0.0.158

    Pros

    It just plain works very well. Has many useful tools in one easy to use Suite. It is Intuitive and the GUI is very well designed.
    Version 5 Pro is much more memory efficient and faster.

    Cons

    This is really not a Negative, but a simple WARNING:
    Make sure you go to the settings tab and select what you want and do not want, BEFORE you run the program. It will save you potential headaches.

    Be especially careful with the "Deep Clean" option under the "Deep Care" section. This can really mess with your computer, if you are not absolutely sure what you are removing.

    Summary

    I have been using "Advanced SystemCare Pro" since version 3. It keeps getting better and better.
    It may replace quite a few of your standalone Utilities.

    I think the "Pro" version 5, is well worth the price.

    I highly recommend it and have.

    "Trashes your system"

    November 25, 2011   |   By John2111

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Pro 5.0.0.158

    Pros

    Looks Pretty

    Cons

    Doubled the time I have to wait when computer is booting up.
    Slowed my FIOS internet speed DOWN 7Mbps after I used the "Internet Booster".
    Internet Explorer and Firefox both "hang" for about 10 seconds when opening a new tab or starting up.
    Windows 7 is unstable after use.
    Interferes with connection to network storage devices even when you opt not to disable those services.

    Summary

    My network storage device stopped functioning twice now, even though I never opted to disable services that it requires. I contacted customer services and I'm hoping for a refund and then I'll do a full system restore.

    "Slows Your Internet and Bad Customer Service"

    November 24, 2011   |   By MrSteve2011

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Pro 5.0.0.158

    Pros

    It was cheap

    Cons

    It is cheap for a reason. I like the free version much better the PRO. I thought to myself "The free version keeps my computer up to speed" so I bought the Pro version thinking it would do more. I ran a deep care and afterwords Opera, Internet Explore, and Chrome stop working. I had to uninstall then re-install and they work but it acts like I have dial up it hasn't been the same since. When I tried to call customer service of course it was out of the country and as usual they couldn't speak clear English. I ask for them to tell me how to fix it and they didn't know what was going on. I tried to ask for a refund and I was told I have to email them for I would be able to get a refund. I have sent 2 emails and have had no response. DON'T BUY IT STICK WITH THE FREE VERSION.

    Summary

    Keep The Free Version it's not worth them money

    "Works Great"

    November 24, 2011   |   By chrisyzfr6

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Pro 5.0.0.158

    Pros

    It's Cleaner and faster

    Cons

    Haven't found any yet

    Summary

    I upgraded from version 4 with no problem. It works very well for me. Note of caution though with deep clean for your registry. Take a system restore or back up your computer. I haven't had any problems with it, but that doesn't mean something couldn't go wrong. Great product, I would recommend it to anyone. It also comes with lots of great tools too!
