Editors' review

Advanced SystemCare Ultimate combines a top antivirus program with a complete system utility suite. The antivirus program is the well-known Bitdefender, providing standard protection against viruses, malware, and adware. The utility suite contains more than 25 handy system tools.

Pros

Complete solution: Advanced SystemCare Ultimate sports an unusually wide range of functions: we have to admit that during the five days of testing we did not feel any need for extra protection or PC tuning support.

Exhaustive array of utility tools: The rich toolbox fine-tunes every part of your machine, with all tools in plain view because the minimal mode of the previous version has been dropped. We particularly liked the "Care" function that in just eight minutes managed to scan two pieces of malware, corrected 4,000 Registry errors, resolved 38 Internet problems, got rid of 200 shortcut errors, and wiped out a staggering 9GB of junk files.

Cons

Typical antivirus protection: Although our full antivirus scan managed to nab three pieces of malware, we feel that the provided protection and scan times are only average.

Some tools are unnecessary: Not all tools are equally functional. For example, the "Startup Manager" tool provides a much more practical service than the confusing Windows equivalent, while the "Auto Shutdown" tool does a very incomplete job compared to the excellent and free "SmartPower Configuration" utility.

Bottom Line

A mature and unusually complete piece of software, Advanced SystemCare Ultimate can make your machine feel safer and faster. Look no further than this app if you want effective antivirus protection combined with an arsenal of system optimization utilities. At $29.99, we feel this app is affordable considering the many features it offers.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 7.1.0.625.

    "Absolutely the best PC maintenance program out there!"

    June 21, 2014   |   By bluesingincat

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 7.1.0.625

    Pros

    Completely controllable, you can let Advanced System Care run in auto mode for different features, or you can manually use the tools and features the way you want, when you want.

    Great interface, easy for beginners or advanced users.

    Backup feature to ensure you can undo functions that might cause a problem with your PC.

    Great anti-virus/malware detection utilizing the bit defender engine built right in to the program.

    Powerful uninstall tool that also helps remove left over registry key entries and empty files.

    Turbo boost to free up resources, making gaming faster and more powerful.

    Built in Defrag function, automatically detects SSD drives.

    Cons

    None that I have found.

    Summary

    I have used IObit's Advanced System Care for 7 years, and have never had any problems with registry errors, slow PC, or unwanted advertisement. I've tried numerous PC maintenance programs over the years, freeware and paid, but Advanced System Care Ultimate outshines them all. It is useful for so many functions required to keep your PC running smooth and error free, and takes way less time that having to do these things manually.
    For the price, you can't go wrong.

    "Excellent product Excellent Support"

    June 19, 2014   |   By hvoltage

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 7.1.0.625

    Pros

    Using the Ultimate version and the Driver Booster for the last 3 years and always come back for more. The most important thing is that this prog is doing exactly what promises to do. I can always feel the improvement in the performance of my laptops after a scan and repair.
    Love the updates, a good sign that everything is still developing and improving.
    The price is OK, the customer support is awesome.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of.

    Summary

    A must for for anybody that want his computer working smooth and protected.

    "Great product, excellent customer services experiences"

    May 27, 2014   |   By vgm121

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 7.1.0.625

    Pros

    ASC ultimate - Set the requirements /settings you want and let it work in the background as a comprehensive utility and system care with the added advantage of having a version of Bitdefender as their in-house antivirus protection

    Cons

    The CPU and RAM are heavily used immediately after log-in as it does its first sweep and update of the day - short delay of full power for half a minute - but still very usable system

    Summary

    I have ASC-ultimate on 6 computers and 1 tablet ( tablet using free version)- To care for and protect 6 home computers with a comprehensive system-care utility and a well proven security product for the discounted rates available directly from them online - provides an excellent product for a great price.
    Yes I am sure you can pick small holes in parts of it, and some of the other similar products have services/utilities that ASC doesn't (and vice versa) but overall it is as good as all the other products I've tried and far better than most.
    I originally used the freebie version on a laptop and then upgraded to the paid version with 3 licences after 3 months.

    I recently upgraded from Pro to Ultimate and from 3 licences to 6 - 2 months after renewing - and had an excellent response and interaction from their customer services dept. including them directing me to extra deals as an existing customer.

    So all-in-all my experiences have been excellent - with 5 stars

    "Don't leave home without it!"

    May 26, 2014   |   By cfreisen

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 7.1.0.625

    Pros

    Excellent program,

    Cons

    and we will ALWAYS need antivirus software!

    Summary

    So yeah, don't leave home without it Because ASC now protects cell phones and tablets too!

    I've been using Advanced System Care for years now, as in even before there was an "Advanced System Care ULTIMATE". It's the best tune-up program around, as well as the best defense possible against malware, adware, and all of the other hazards that can lay you (and your electronics) low. I've read some of the other reviews of this product, some of which claim this program is slow...? I strongly suspect the problem is NOT ASC Pro, but that they have problems with their computer or a very slow ISP or too many devices running for their modem's bandwidth. I use this program on my work station, my laptop, and my Windows 8 tablet and get stunning performance out of all three AND strong anti-virus/anti-malware protection all in one lovely package! What could be better than that? ONLY one thing: If all the twits who write and distribute viruses and malware were suddenly zapped into cyber-space themselves! We don't need them! <sigh> But until that happens (don't hold your breath!) we will have a constant need for anti-virus protection because the bad guys are always one step ahead of the good guys. It's the nature of the animal. The human animal! Which means life is not at all like a box of chocolates. It's more like a Lone Ranger movie. Chase down the bad guys! "Hi yo, Silver, away!"

    "Sooooooo Slowwwwwwwwwwww"

    April 25, 2014   |   By SandraDorothy

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 7.1.0.625

    Pros

    Non than I can think of at the moment.

    Cons

    It took over 4 hours to complete a scan.

    Summary

    I have the Advanced System Care 7 Pro on 3 computers and it is brilliant, I was offered a trial of Ultimate and found it to be far to slow so have reverted back.

    "Free is OK but the Ultimate lives up to its name."

    April 21, 2014   |   By dusty4funy

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 7.1.0.625

    Pros

    I have been a fan of ASC free for years, it as saved more corrupted systems for me than I care to remember. It is by far the best free utility I have used. But just like the free Anti-Virus I had been using they have limited functions and capabilities, which were adequate when I had time and the patience to put in the extra effort to maintain my systems. Now I prefer to spend a little and get a lot back in functionality and time savings. Especially now that ASC includes anti virus capabilities in its Ultimate version. It makes the PC manageable again and all from one app. If you find an issue with your PC, look in the toolbox and chances are the solution will be there.

    Also the service is top notch, I found that out right after mistakenly ordering the wrong version. Within 12 hours the issue had been very favourably resolved.

    Cons

    Maybe a year from now, but none for now.

    Summary

    Don't think too hard about it its a no brainer, take back control of your PC, yes it is possible.
    Great intuitive functionality.

    "My unused key"

    April 12, 2014   |   By johhhh

    Version: Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 7.1.0.625

    Pros

    Regular ASC is GR8.
    Doesn't interfere with my Malwarebytes (paid version).

    Cons

    Wouldn't let me turn off or uninstall AntiVirus.

    Summary

    AVG free instantly cleans zipped file before it finishes downloading.
    Comodo is my preferred AV & FW
    Paid Malwarebytes is the best

    Updated on Apr 12, 2014

    Buying 3 the original ASC and uninstalling 2 Ultimate ASC. Here's my unused key:
    07FD2-54F7B-EF285-028D6
    NOTE that I used it twice, so it's good for one more system
