Editors' Review

All it takes it a single visit to a compromised Web site to snare a nasty piece of malware or to pick up cookies that track your every browsing move. And there's nothing worse than a computer that is bogged down so much that it impedes your ability to work or play games. Advanced Systemcare aims to remedy whatever ails your computer by not only cleaning up junk files, malware, and invalid registry entries, but by giving your computer a boost to optimize your PC experience.

Advanced Systemcare's interface is broken down into four maintenance categories so as to not overwhelm you: Quick Care, Deep Care, Toolbox, and Turbo Boost. We started with Quick Care and with the Quick Malware Removal feature. We clicked Scan and the program quickly went to work and came back with no issues. (In all fairness, we regularly run full PC scans using our own security software, so we didn't expect the program to find anything here.) Next up to bat was the Registry Fix, which came back with a whopping 597 problems. We found this a little fishy since we had just tested a very reputable registry cleaner that had found and fixed all of our registry issues. Still, we went through the process of checking and unchecking which files we wanted the program to fix. Once we clicked the Repair Now option, the program went to work and the problem registry entries were remedied in a matter of seconds. The Deep Care feature takes it all a step further by offering deeper scans, as well as a Registry Defrag option, which we successfully used to tidy up our registry. We were a little miffed that the program didn't ask us if we wanted to back up our registry before making any changes. However, we'll give it a slight pass because the program does include a Rescue feature that lets you undo any registry changes, and offers the ability to create a restore point, which we recommend you do before you touch your registry. Our final stop on the tour was the Turbo Boost feature. From there, we selected Work Mode, which let us manually disable unnecessary services and background applications. We were skeptical of it actually doing anything to speed up our computer, but we have to admit that we did notice a slight difference in our computer's speed, and for the better. The program does include an online help guide, though we don't think you'll need it for handling basic cleaning tasks.

Pay close attention while installing Advanced Systemcare because it'll install an IObit toolbar if you don't decline. The program also leaves a folder behind after uninstallation. Still, we recommend it as a worthwhile program for keeping your system running on all cylinders.

"Beware The Fine Print"

October 19, 2012  |  By robojoe2013

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.0

Pros

Great program- increased speed and eliminated bogging down. Easy to use with lots of options.

Cons

I have been using Advanced System Care for a year , tried the free version and upgraded to the paid version shortly thereafter, buying 3 copies for my home and laptop. Imagine my surprise when on the one year anniversary I was billed again for the entire amount. All I got was a nice thank you email for my purchase of their product, with no explanation (or warning) that they were again charging me for something that I purchased a year ago (Happy Anniversary!)

Summary

It is a nice program, but not nice enough to merit repurchasing it every year. It was disappointing to not be properly warned up front- I am assuming there was something in the user agreement that said please fleece my credit card on an annual basis..... but there was no notice given or approval requested--they just charged me. I use Norton 360 which is very upfront about what you are paying for, and let you know that your product is about to expire, and would I like to renew - Norton uses the term "subscription" in reference to their product, while Advanced System Care uses words like "purchase" , which certainly misled me

"Absolute Nightmare Software!!!!"

October 17, 2012  |  By mikaura

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.0

Pros

Absolutely none...except for a decent looking interface.

Cons

Creates bogus issues to snag you into buying the full paid version.

This program will also cause performance issues and cause damage to your PC or laptop to the point of reformatting your hard drive.

Unfortunately, I had a first hand experience of having to do this on my 3 month old desktop. Was finally able to free my system of issues and remnants of this software after doing a complete "clean install" of my operating system.

Summary

I would highly recommend avoiding this program at all cost!
