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.

"Kicks.......'Derrier'.....to be polite."

January 30, 2015  |  By dlm51

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 8.0.1.660

Pros

It does have real upgrades and additions to the system, including Start 8.
This helped me square up my wife's new PC with Win 8.1.
A real help in restructuring your thinking and learning when going from Win 7 to 8.1
It helps navigate through the unfamiliar minefield.

Cons

None so far

Summary

I've been a long-time Iobit ASC satisfied customer. The service has ALWAYS been prompt and precise in solving any questions/problems. So with the generous offer to upgrade to 8 Ultimate, I could not resist it. Ran a 5 hour deep scan which routed out three Trojans. This did not happen with another product.
Bottom line....IObit is stuck with me. Keep up the great work.

"ASC Ultimate is the Best of it's kind"

January 20, 2015  |  By Clubmaker1

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 8.0.1.660

Pros

I am just a home computer user who spends several hours a week looking things up, reading and writing emails and just the regular things everyone does. I went looking for a new and better anti-virus program and I found all that and more. ASC comes with an improved "Uninstaller", a "Driver Booster", a "Smart Defrag" program, a "Malware Fighter" and much, much more. I recommend everyone who reads this, please go to their site and download it. There is a 30 day FREE trial available and I think the majority of people who try it, will keep it. I could go on and say so much more, but, I think the program speaks for itself. Go to www.iobit.com and try it. You'll be glad you did! In addition, if there is something you need help with, just give them a shout. They have the best customer service you could ask for.

Cons

I have tried to think of something negative to say about this product, but, I can't think of one. You try it and judge for yourself.

Summary

I have spent a lot of money on so-called "utility" software as well as anti virus programs at prices well above what this will cost and all I can say is, "what was I thinking?" This program will keep your computer running smooth as silk for it's lifetime. (which will be longer with the help of ASC Ultimate)

"5 star "All in one" antivirus & pc optimising utility!"

January 18, 2015  |  By paul.harley.184

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 8.0.1.660

Pros

Ultimate version has three options of virus scanning (quick, full & custom). The scans run at a good speed (quick being quicker of course). Regular anti-virus database updates. It however is the optimising part of the software which I appreciate. It has 12 options that run from the "care" tab including spyware removal, system & disc optimisation etc to name a few. There is also a "toolbox" tab where further options for specific pc managing utilities can be found, such as malware fighter & are stand alone programs (malware fighter & driver booster require their own registration activation!). The others open as a new program from the toolbox icons & are included with the Ultimate program. These include amongst others: disc doctor, registry cleaner & smart RAM utilities. Next tab is "turbo boost" function where once set up can run at windows boot stopping unnecessary programs & optimise RAM etc. Tab 5 shows software update info. Yearly subscriptions good prices. Great customer support.

Cons

Not many cons that I can see, but I would suggest using a separate dedicated anti-spyware/malware program along side this software as I have had recent issues with adware which the Ultimate software couldnt remove, having said that, unless your pc gets bombarded with particularly stubborn adware etc then the ASC Ultimate does a good job at finding and removing most annoyances. Being picky now really but personally I would like for the extra programs such as the driver booster, smart defrag and Malware fighter to be included with the Ultimate package and perhaps those programs could be kept as extra options for the Pro package. In my opinion, its not really "ultimate" unless it has ALL the bells and whistles. I for one would be prepared to pay just a little more for my yearly subscription to have these extras included in a genuinely Ultimate package.

Summary

Fantastic piece of software that works well, filled with genuinely useful features, great price, great customer support (fast responses), continuous software and database updates, very easy to use, tick the check boxes + click scan! Have recommended this program to many people and will do so again!
5* from me!

"practical but a bit heavy"

January 14, 2015  |  By sanchopansa

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 8.0.1.660

Pros

The one click system optimization saved headscratching what to to and what not.
The disc and system defragmentation caused palpable acceleration of my machine, but I don't have comparison.
Protected my browser home page several times.
Good price.

Cons

Seem's to be a bit heavy, lots of processes started, high cpu load for quite a while updating at startup.
