Advanced SystemCare

CNET Editors' review

This utility offers a one-stop-shop for cleaning and maintaining your computer for better overall system performance. The interface is very simple, featuring only a few buttons, which makes it easy to get down to cleaning immediately (in fact, it automatically runs on start-up) and doesn't confuse you with multiple steps.

The Maintain Windows section focuses on four areas of maintenance: spyware removal, Registry cleaning, a privacy sweep, and deletion of junk files. The Diagnose System button provides system optimization tools, detects spyware, defragments your disk, and scans for hijacked Windows settings. In our tests the scan and clean for each of these areas took less than 10 minutes to complete. In many of these scans, it is difficult to tell what exactly is being accomplished by some of the tools, but we were able to test against other trusted apps, which confirmed Advanced SystemCare's efficacy in those areas.

Under the utilities section you are given several tools, which are similar to plug-ins, for other areas of optimization and diagnostic tests. Overall, Advanced SystemCare Free is a good way to maintain your system's speed and clear out junk files, but you'll need to remember to run it regularly because scheduling of scans is only available in the paid Pro version.

    "I enjoy this program because it works"

    July 3, 2009  |   By krazywildman

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 3.3.3

    Pros

    It's an all around internet / pc tool that works great with my Windows XP Pro. The program works great in both of these areas. Please understand that Windows SystemCare free one is not as good as Windows SystemCare Pro but it's a great one.

    Cons

    The only problem that I have had is on the lastest update 3.3.4 will not install and I am still trying to work out the problem with this new update.

    Summary

    I have told and will continue to tell everyone to get this program for there Home or Buis. computers. It's easy to download, install and setup on most Pc's that I've done this to.

    "Seemingly a great program"

    June 30, 2009  |   By MoonBuzzard

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 3.3.3

    Pros

    One click and the system is checked and fixed, if necessary

    Cons

    No logs. Nothing to substantiate the number of problems found/fixed.

    Summary

    Running the registry checker came up with 17 errors. Running two other registry checkers, both came up with 0 problems. SystemCare is really very good, or very suspicious. With no logs it's hard to tell. But love the menus!!

    "Very good at fixing errors and much more!"

    June 28, 2009  |   By SJSF

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 3.3.3

    Pros

    Very good at fixing errors,defragmenting the disk and the registry.It includes many utilities to optimize the PC,it gives you information about your computer and lets you tweak many settings.

    Cons

    It starts scanning and fixing immediately after installation which may be bad if you want to change the settings so it doesn't delete internet history and other temporary files that you may want to keep at the moment.

    Summary

    It is a great program!

    Extremely simple to set up, configure and use.

    Good reporting details - but only if I'm interested !

    Cons

    None that affect its usefulness.

    Summary

    A great tool, well presented and very thorough, and unobtrusive.

    "Free version has changed"

    June 28, 2009  |   By marshalllaww

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 3.3.3

    Pros

    it used to be a great free program

    Cons

    used to be a great free program

    Summary

    it used to clean everything, now it has joined the ranks of the free programs that only does half the job unless you buy the 'pro' version. I am getting sick of this perfectly legal and yet very misleading practice that has become so common these days.

    "A reasonable product that purports global features!"

    June 28, 2009  |   By amscousa

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 3.3.3

    Pros

    Global features.

    Cons

    Ordinary users, regardless of experience, "trust" any product's purported features, I can only question whether they do as advertized. I can only hope for a service that mirrors an ideal service paid for our hard earned money.

    Summary

    A number of users are not tech savy to program our own software and rely and trust those that do. I have purchased over the years many such programs only to discover later that they may have failed to deliver what was advertised. I say "may" have failed as a conclusion derived from the opinion of other users whose intentions may be questionable in the kind of world we live in.

    The fact is that as a user I will never know whether this program does or does not do as advertised. I can only hope that those involved have the decency to provide the service promoted and not just be concerned with a dressing that is limited to making the product simply look as if it is performing the task's listed.
    In closing, I simply hope that it does the purported list of maintenance and repairs well enough to keep an otherwise questionable operating system.

    "It does hours of work, with a single mouseclick,"

    June 27, 2009  |   By PaladineIV

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 3.3.3

    Pros

    Advanced System Care is truly advanced and it is the best in system care. Registry Problems, junk files, Spyware, even defrag are automatic, and the people at IObit are rightfully proud of their work, keeping it up to date and bug free.

    Cons

    Like any other Freeware, the program deliberately doesn't do all it could. It is the best freeware, but the pro version is just plain better.

    Summary

    For my home system, Advanced System Care is all I need and more. I have a router with firewall and my OS firewall, so ASC does everything else, keeping me clean, malware free, and smooth running, so that my Internet surfing is great and my games play flawlessly. I can play games that require more memory than I have, because ASC has a smart ram feature that lets me use what ram I have to the fullest. In my thirty-odd years as a computer Tech and die-hard Geek, I haven't encountered a single Program I like more. This is a non-intrusive, completely functional tool to optimize and maintain windows for personal use. IObit has done a fantastic job. Nothing compares to their product as freeware, and most of the programs for sale pale by comparison From now on, if I need a program, I'm checking IObit first, before I even look anywhere else. If they had an antivirus, I might even switch from my current choice to theirs.
