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.

"Used to love this program. Don't anymore."

January 29, 2013  |  By berniekeating

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.0.7.160

Pros

Lots of features that work really really well.

Cons

Malware feature is a untrustworthy. Installed an ASC update. Accidentally fell for the Iobit toolbar gag. The toolbar installed Spigot malware that was a nightmare to remove. ASC malware scan didn't detect any malware. Called tech support. They confirmed I did have malware and they would remove it for about $100. Very disappointing.

"Damages and slows down yr system"

January 26, 2013  |  By mixie6

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.0.7.160

Pros

none that can't be found elsewhere

Cons

registry cleaner is damaging
internet optimizer optimizes nothing

Summary

I used asc 6 pro and regret it. The internet optimizer SLOWED my connection, and i ask anyone how a deep registry cleaner that finds 100+ problems in a fairly new windows 7 operating system nearly every time it's run can be good? Maybe u can use it with extreme caution, yes, but do u really want to use a program where that is the only way to use it? The answer is simple...don't use it and avoid like the plague.

"Trashed my Win 7 system. Had to do a system restore."

October 31, 2012  |  By suwanavi

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.0.7.160

Pros

Usually an exceptional, highly effective program.

Cons

Trashed my windows 7 system. Had to do a system restore.

Summary

I've used ASC for years and have never had a problem. But this upgrade wiped out several programs, including ASC 5. I did a system restore, but a missing file rendered ASC 5 unusable, even to allow me to uninstall it. I was shocked and disappointed. Will try it again later. Overall it is a good program.

Updated on Oct 31, 2012

Note: I installed and used it on Win XP without incident.

"Seems to work great!"

October 31, 2012  |  By craigarowe

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.0.7.160

Pros

Fast, Easy, Free.

Cons

None I'm aware of yet.

Summary

I installed The ASC6 cleaner to see how it compares to CCleaner. Over a period of a few days, ran both cleaners back-to-back, alternating the starting order. Each time, both cleaners "found" items that the first left behind. I think I like ASC6 better though; it seems to be more thorough.

"This version gave me the 'blacK Screen Of Death'!"

October 31, 2012  |  By Whatcnido

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.0.7.160

Pros

Wonderful product until the update.

Cons

Crashed both my Vista and 7. The 7 was pretty simple to recover from but I thought I lost the vista. Still showing a load error. Cannot remove the program using windows uninstaller.

Summary

Wait to update till they fix it.

"Don't use on Win7 Starter"

October 30, 2012  |  By ka3jjz

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.0.7.160

Pros

Well laid out, and the tools are easy to use. Seems to be pretty thorough (maybe not quite as good as CCleaner, but still plenty useful)

Cons

I had installed this on both a XP SP3 desktop and Win7 Starter netbook. The XP desktop installation seems pretty stable, but Win7 Starter would not boot up with it installed. I believe it has to do with the ads that show up from time to time. I used CCleaner to drop it off my netbook, and no more boot errors

Summary

Great package for older machines, but Win7 users should beware.

"improved my windows7pro"

October 30, 2012  |  By 123saturn

Pros

faster boot, turbo boost option (gets rid of window extra programs in background), scheduled clean and sweep, performance monitor and frees up ram memory at a click of a button!

Cons

takes up computer memory to run, has notices to buy full program as it doesn't fix everything.

Summary

great free program! couldn't be happier... except to consider a full version for possible improved computer functions!

"It's worked pretty well so far."

October 28, 2012  |  By Moparmama70

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.0.7.160

Pros

So far I've had no problems, but I just got the update. I will probably buy the program, but I need to replace my computer first. I like that it's really easy to use, which is important to me. It didn't slow down my system, which I also like a lot.

Cons

Actually, none so far.

Summary

It's a good all in one program that does what it's supposed to without any hang ups. I'm not very geeky, and I've had no problems.
