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.

"I like this program--although I was hesitant at first."

May 06, 2013  |  By crd3

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.1.9.220

Pros

It does almost everything that I would want a program like this to do. I've had other programs like this, from some of the major providers, and I don't think that anything has beaten this outright.

Cons

It does lack it's own "firewall"--depending on the one that was installed in Window XP.

Summary

I went online for a freeware download of a firewall. There are a number of them out there, and I will be experimenting with a number of them in the days to come. I believe that I now have a license for the "Ultimate" put out by this company, and I'm satisfied for the time being. It seems that they have improved their product.

"has rescued more than one pc"

April 23, 2013  |  By the_fork

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.1.9.220

Pros

had an old xp laptop with issues. this solved it. use on a newer xp model it works there too. also use on a win7 model works fine. i always go for portable version though, so i advise you do too

Cons

portable version is best. to get it i will explain. if installed you have to stop the running processes for this as it is invasive.you also have to uncheck boxes at instal to stop things being changed

Summary

to get portable version download. install, but make it a custom install and make sure to uncheck boxes where extras are shown. once installed open and go to toolbox, advanced and see there? yes it says advanced system care portable fourth one up on the right. now you click that and once downloaded you can uninstal the forst version. put the portable one in a safe place. when using the portable version you open up and select asc.exe,bye

"It's Software Snake-oil sales scam"

April 22, 2013  |  By tomaz--2008

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.1.9.220

Pros

They have an attractive skin with nice colors.

Cons

I paid for an annual subscription from IObit: Advanced Systemcare PRO 6 on 2/20/2013. 3 weeks later, a big orange box opens up on the middle of my screen ~ every 10 min. to warn my that my subscription's about to expire. So I dig up all the info: receipts, order forms, etc. I email IObit & soon, all is normal. Now it's ~ mid-April. Here we go again. But this time my License key no longer works. The hours I've spent on this I should send them a bill! Another great IObit gaff: Do a complete system scan, then wait a day & repeat. Everything that was a problem the day before is back exactly as it was before. The whole system is a scam, so is IObit. Keep your money away from these thieves!

Summary

The program looks professional & appears to have all the bases covered. But the majority of it all is just a dog & pony show designed to flatten out your wallet & give you a false sense of security while access to your computer is left wide Bad all around: Do not do business with IObit!

"One program everyone should own"

April 22, 2013  |  By Derangedxzombie

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.1.9.220

Pros

- Removes malware and security loopholes from internet, also installing any needed windows updates.
- Fixes all registry problems.
- Deletes all junk files (though Bitbleach may be better)
- Disk scan and defragment.
- Shortcut fix and privacy sweep.
- Boosts your PC performance and internet performance.
- Easy to use and nicely laid out interface.
- Can display your RAM and CPU usage in a little rectangle in the corner of your desktop which can be opened up to do other things, as well as telling your PC's current health.

Cons

- None, the paid version is needed for internet boost I think. And for the IOBit malware removal tool (probably more comprehensive than the built in one)

Summary

A brilliant little program that'll keep your PC healthy. And better than getting many separate ones that do lesser a job.

"Fixed My "Slow Internet" Problem!"

April 15, 2013  |  By UtahInternetWizard

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.1.9.220

Pros

Easy to use
Runs through checks rather quickly
Auto Repair Option

Cons

Made my laptop unresponsive at least twice
Not sure if the program actually fixed the problems it said it did (due to a lack of being able to preview the actual problems? Maybe I missed something)

Summary

My internet speed has been giving me issues for over a year now, where it will cycle back and forth from slow to fast to slow, repeatedly without end. I thought it had to do with my wifi range but after moving to different locations in my home, nothing changed. I tried downloading different free software from this site to attack the issue at different angles, all with no success. So I gave up for a long time. Then today I got fed up with it again and looked around cnet.com for a potential answer. After running this program and reseting my laptop, the issue was resolved after the first go! I still don't know what was causing the problem or how this program fixed it, but my internet browser is running smoothly again without any changes in speed (I played a game on www.kongregate.com for an hour straight to test it.) I'm going to keep an eye on it for the next week to make sure it will stay this way for the long run.

For now, I am IMMENSLY IMPRESSED with the results! I can not thank the makers of Advanced System Care enough, other than buying this product once I see within a week that the problem doesn't crop back up!
