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.

"FREE is fine but the paid version is not worth it!"

June 22, 2013  |  By rdbush69

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.2.0.254

Pros

It's FREE and does a fair job of cleaning up our computer

Cons

The paid version is a subscription where they bill your card or Paypal account every year for 22.99
Not worth it. The free version wants to add other programs such as smart defrag and an uninstaller program, I don't need all of that.

Summary

OK for the price - FREE

Updated on Jun 22, 2013

It tries to add a tool bar change your search provider and download other programs that you do not want.

"Fantastik!"

June 19, 2013  |  By mona-mi

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.2.0.254

Pros

Easy to use and navigate thru - it actually did the initial, basic diagnostic tests and fixes on the first run. And FAST!!

Cons

You have to pick the diagnostic options it should run yourself - I hate to think, much less choose from "a la carte menus." BUT it was an easy tool to run, so...all is good

Summary

This program was perfect for my nephew's Dell Latitude notebook (w/out duel Celeron mind you), which was running extreeeeemely slow (hey, he's 12 & loves his video games, what can I say?) Good thing it runs on WinXP! All.n.All it did the job of cleaning out all the hidden leftover program files uninstall doesnt take with it and it found 4-adware and 1-malware trojan. The program is so small, simple to run and setup to continue monitoring his system that I know he will be able to manage it by himself from here on out ( 8= Thank you Advanced SystemCare and CNET!!!

"Junk;redundant;broken or missing elements. Avoid."

June 18, 2013  |  By societ-noteconomy

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.2.0.254

Pros

Hmm. ... Can't think of any.

Cons

As outlined in summary: redundant (and therefore annoying in the face of other programs that actually do something). Hard to identify and then try to fix broken program elements; this would have taken forever if I hadn't just scrapped the whole thing. Plus, they want money to actually do the job properly, (or so they promise).

"Great Product to clean and help fix your computer!"

June 17, 2013  |  By delongva

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.2.0.254

Pros

-Thorough cleaning
-Fixes mosts bugs
-Speeds up your PC
-Fast & effective Customer Support
-Easy to use (user-friendly)
-Big bang for your buck

Cons

-Have to go to websites to update

Summary

I have been using ASC personally for a few years. One company I work with started using the free version a year or so ago and has now switched to the Pro version. I have recommended this program, to lots of people, as a good program to help fix issues & bugs on your computer, even to speed it up. While it might not help or get everything it is very effective. It's free to try and use, if you don't like it, uninstall it.

"Free program is hard to keep free"

June 14, 2013  |  By Hardcoal80

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.2.0.254

Pros

It is literally the best free program to-date that I have found to keep a windows computer free of malware. It has found and removed many threats that Norton and McAfee don't find!

Cons

It adds what I consider malware to your system if you aren't careful during the install process. Stuff like search toolbars for internet browsers, "free trial" programs and their newest invention to get users to upgrade to ASC Ultimate.

The program needs to be updated periodically and directs you back to download.com or cnet to get the update (which can be confusing in itself to sort through the ads). The "update" process is again riddled with "optional" boxes to check off.

Summary

IObit freeware programs in general have become annoying and mostly broken unless you upgrade to the pay version. During install (and some updates) you have to block all kinds of toolbars, and "free trials". Anyone not familiar with such tactics would get hosed or think they were cancelling the install. I guess there is no more free lunch.
