    "Quirky Doom."

    July 27, 2013  |   By digitalgod2000

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Pro 5.0

    Pros

    Generally speaking, this software has been very helpful over the past couple of years; and I've previously recommended it to family and friends alike.

    Cons

    Registry Fragments. Twice now, this year, upon restarting for Registry Fragments - the software has corrupted the user profile.

    You can do a Google/Bing/etc for "Advanced System Care Corrupt User Profile" to see that people are having issues with the software based on changes made to it this year.

    I wish I had searched after the first one, but I figured it was something else that had caused the problem. As I sit here trying to decide whether to copy the files and lose settings once more or just to reinstall the OS to start from scratch, I figured I would offer the review here.

    Others will have their various complaints - however, the sheer hassle involved in a corrupted profile leaves me wishing I had never heard of the company and never installed the software. It's a shame, because it has always served me well in the past.

    Summary

    Looking at 4 hours to copy the files from the old profile to the new - with no guarantee of what will work or not work after it is done. I'm tempted once more just to reinstall the OS from scratch and avoid installing this particular software of quirky doom...

    Updated on Jul 27, 2013

    Please note, this was in regard to 6.3 - I'm not sure why the review ended up here for version 5.

    "Great, hard to say how great, so many moronic reviews."

    July 14, 2013  |   By Royalblunts

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Pro 5.0

    Pros

    I see 0 bugs.
    It won't take control of your pc.
    Your not forced to download Spigot there is clearly a check-box at installation.
    You can turn of automatic startup in the settings.
    Upgrading to pro will not cause a black screen of death. Black screen of death is ******* moronic it's called a BLUE screen of death (BOSD)and will give you an error code and this program has never caused this to happen.

    This program DOES seem to be a one stop pc maintenance solution that takes care of everything.

    Cons

    I can't really tell if it's working or if it's just saying its working to make me feel good about buying it.

    Summary

    Alot of these morons need to do some troubleshooting with their pc before they start writing negative reviews about a program. If the program is doing what it says its doing then its a 100% must have program.

    "much better than I had hoped for."

    September 22, 2012  |   By L D Roberts

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Pro 5.0

    Pros

    The ease of use and the depth of cleaning and adjusting it does was hard to believe. My computer is now back to normal and is under my control. So far no complaints at all Thanks

    Cons

    none found yet and it had it`s work cut out for it to get my computer back under my command

    Summary

    "Fun, easy to use. Product meets and exceeds expectation"

    July 23, 2012  |   By PraetorAuron

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Pro 5.0

    Pros

    -increases system speed and performance
    -non-intrusive
    -clean, easy to read UI
    -cost is worth what this program provides

    Cons

    -startup load speed a bit slower than before
    -Security features are definately not new-user friendly

    Summary

    I rate this 9/10. The program is well worth the cost I paid. I'm getting my system optimized for gaming, and I can definitely notice a speed increase, as well as a fps increase. Registry runs fater, and overall system performance is increased to due disk defragmentation processes.

    "Great software!!"

    Pros

    Easy to use. It helps the computer runs smooth and I do feel more protected, from malwares, spywares and others viruses.

    Cons

    I am running the free trial, I do wish I can afford to buy the full version soon.

    "Best maintenance software EVER"

    July 1, 2012  |  

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Pro 5.0

    Pros

    Damn rich features for damn low costs.

    Cons

    Rather complicated settings? For good though. Might require a bit of patience, otherwise you might explode and hate this thing.

    Summary

    I was skeptical when I was about to buy this thing, but as soon as I paid USD 13 for 3 PC for a year (which was the cost), I found this software to be the most excellent software I've ever seen. I've been running an Acer Travelmate 3273 since almost 6 years and no optimisation software has worked so far and given the occasionally negative reviews of paid software I was first doubtful of this one as well but decided to give a shot anyway and it was WAY MORE THAN WORTH IT.

    The software could tell the state of your machine: bad, fair, or good. And it was bad when I opened it the first time, so I ran the "Deep Scan" feature, which isn't available in the free version, and I found more than 1,000 system errors!! That despite me having defragged the computer regularly. So I cleaned the things, coupled with other actions to optimise my machine, once and for all (I admit, it took about an hour to understand how this baby works), and I will never look back to the murky past of using all those software on the net.

    If you do buy games and films/movies, then you should buy this too.

    "Everything good except for annoying bugs!!"

    May 23, 2012  |   By brvnbld

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Pro 5.0

    Pros

    +Many Features
    +Fast De-fragmentation
    +Customizable UI
    +Turbo Boost REALLY WORKS.

    Cons

    -Active Boost worsens your system speed
    -Got many bugs, that are to be fixed
    -System Maintenance is not promising
    -Built in Security Feature is really annoying

    Summary

    Install this if u really think u are out of options in getting a System Maintenance softwares. There are many a good features in this software, but i would recommend u try other softwares before u do. This doesn't crash your system(unless,if u have speedy system). But it really slows down your PC a lot by the name of active boost. Extract a WinRar Archive,and Run a Norton Scan it takes atleast 15 minutes to extract the archive.

    One Liner- If u want looks with less substance go for this, else stay away.

    May 17, 2012  |   By faith37us

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Pro 5.0

    Pros

    The free one worked well

    Cons

    As soon as I purchased it, my computer froze and things wouldn't load. I have a black screen and can't re-install my computer. Have to take it to be fixed. ): freezing constantly, blocking EVERYTHING, including what was directly from Microsoft! Then my programs started to not open at all and I also got the black screen of death.

    Summary

    DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY

    "Does what it claims"

    May 3, 2012  |   By royalspin

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Pro 5.0

    Pros

    Like my one line summary said-Does what it claims.

    Cons

    I wish it had bandwidth TCP optimizer for Win 7 .Even though it says its not needed because Win 7 already does this for you,that isn't technically true.There are tweaks that can be done to enhance TCP connections.

    Summary

    I read several of the personal reviews on this product and I'm not sure why so many people had drastic issues with this program especially after upgrading from the free version.I did the same and have had no issues.Ive also been using Iobit products for many years without a hitch .Like any program you shouldn't just leave the program set in default mode.Some tweaking to personalize it is a necessary task.Things like turning on or off auto updating or watching carefully what you deleting or for that matter making sure your not permanently deleting something vital like install logs which can affect whether you can uninstall a program later on or not.I would highly advise this program as well as a few others this company makes.Some would say it just does the same thing that Windows already offers.Yes this is true but it has everything bundled like many programs out there that offer the same.I like the deep clean one click solution after Ive already tailored the settings for my needs.You can also do the whole go on autopilot mode which is also nice.For those of us out there who enjoy spending less time fiddling with Windows in order to enjoy our computers hassle free this is an excellent program.Just because I gave this product a glowing review doesn't mean I work for this company .However if Iobit wouldn't mind kicking me down a buck or two for endorsing them I would OK with that too.Bottom line is they have provided many people I know a easy free solution for issues with Windows in a very effective package .The pro version is a wise choice for those who really want to get deep in there and clean house.As for those who have all these issues I would say please read the product guidelines and check out the forums before using it and or stop installing pirated software that the program may have found which could be why they're systems are having so many issues.Be careful what you install and or what you delete.The program only does what its told.
