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.

"Don't really see what it does"

August 20, 2013  |  By batsdude

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.3.0.269

Pros

Well, there ARE a lot of alleged tools.

Cons

The alleged tools don't really seem to do anything after giving me what are definitely false/scripted scan results. Half of the "tools" that were free in earlier versions- which were better versions- are now only available with a VERY overpriced "pro" version. There's no warning for the inexperienced abot it's anti-malware conflicting with other anti-malware, which can lead to HUGE issues. It sets itself up to boot at start up and you CANNOT undo that! Leaves a lot of reg traces upon uninstall.

Summary

I'd call it malware because of the probs it can cause, but all in all it's really just a ram hogging, do nothing, overpriced junk program, that gives false scan results to look important. Avoid it.

"Simply The Best..."

August 19, 2013  |  By hurricane4911

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.3.0.269

Pros

Excellent Suite of Tools
Stacks up very well vs. competitors
Solid

Cons

Lose the Smiley-Frowny Face

Summary

I've used ASC for years and has been a solid addition to my suite of software tools across many different platforms. Then "Scan" feature feature allows you to customize what maintenance activities to perform. The "Toolbox" is rich with many stand-alone maintenance tools. ASC is the Swiss Army Knife of diagnostic software.

I use the Pro version with a 3 seat license. It's worth every penny.

"Recommended!"

August 18, 2013  |  By BlitzWithGuns

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.3.0.269

Pros

Helps with a lot of things with your computer. Malware removal, defragmentation, rigistry cleaner, and internet booster. Also, a professional UI that would satisfy experienced computer users.

Cons

Malware cleaner can detect well, but doesn't seem to be able to repair them properly.

Summary

My computer's performance really increased with the use of this program. Startup time to load the password screen was so much faster (it increased from 20 seconds to 3 seconds. If you have a old computer you want to throw away, don't do it. Just use Advanced System Care 6.

"User-friendly!"

August 15, 2013  |  By HayworthAndNorth

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.3.0.269

Pros

Simple to install & use. Satisfying to watch the scans & see all the clean-up ASC is doing. Very friendly customer service. Perfect for non-techy users, who want a product that doesn't require a degree in CompSci.

Cons

Needs to be renewed every year :-(

Summary

This is a very cool product, but it requires annual paid renewals. It should really offer a one-time purchase option.

"Trust the product, thumbs up to their technical support"

August 14, 2013  |  By macnz

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.3.0.269

Pros

Easy install, clean dashboard that is easy to navigate and understand. Good notifications whose settings are not buried away so easy to adjust. Updates are short and fast.
Have paid version. Handy set of utilities in tool set that all checkout. Handy optimisation to your laptop too if you need it.
No annoying pop-up offers if you only use the free version

Cons

Not sure there is much running time difference to smart scan vs full scan
Not sure if iObit's Malware fighter adds anything to advance care general suite of scans but it runs well and is vigilent

Summary

Full Scan checklist is comprehensive and "tidy" (est. 7-8 mins) in terms of run time(ASUS 202).
The malware scan appears comprehensive although once or twice my MalwareBytes has found a couple left behind.
Worth giving it a go

"SUPER Products & OUTSTANDING Support"

August 13, 2013  |  By bigccwashington

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.3.0.269

Pros

I would like to tell you about a company who really cares about the products they produce and the customers that use them. IObit is that company, I have been a customer of theirs since 2009, and have used both the free and paid versions of many of their applications.

Specifically I'd like to talk about a problem I had and the resolution that the "IObit Support Team" provided both in a professional and timely manner.

I contacted the support personnel via e-mail, indicating my problem, that same day they responded by providing a software tool and requested that I produce an IObit Debug file. On the same day I generated the information they requested and forwarded it to them.

A couple of days later they contacted me and indicated the problem had been resolved, they provided a fix.

Cons

No cons have been found with this company its current products, or Support Team.

Summary

I felt the Support Team treated me as a very special and important customer I am not a large corporate user, but an individual that has 2 computers in my home. Based on my experience that I've gained since 2009, I highly recommend this company and all of the products that I have used both the free and paid versions.

"I Love it !!!!"

August 13, 2013  |  By Crusin_King

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.3.0.269

Pros

I like how the paid version does everything important on its own. I haven't had to go "fix" my moms computer since I installed it. The UI is very easy to deal with and very quick. I like the fact of the monitor gives me graphs that I can glance at each of my 4 computers to make sure they are running smooth.

Cons

No auto update on the free version.
Needs a update button on the performance monitor

Summary

I install the free version on all my customer computers that I fix.

"Excellent "ALL-IN-ONE" Maintenace"

August 13, 2013  |  By klem57

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.3.0.269

Pros

Great product. If you are only going to use one program to keep your PC running smoothly then this is it. From junk files to registry to malware protection this does it all and does most of it very well. Turbo boost works well for gaming. Internet optimizer, malware protection, smart defrag and all other additional functions are top-notch. Although the registry cleaner is better than most I still prefer EFRU for that. I also use CCleaner as no single program ever finds everything. Between the three of them my PC is always running at tip-top performance.
I liked the free version enough to get the Pro version, which is even better (and comes with a license for 3 computers).

Cons

I'm never happy that a program wants to add more than what I'm asking for and this one is no different from most (however, I do expect that from any "free" program).
Be sure you uncheck the box(es) when you are installing the program or you'll end up with a Yahoo toolbar. It also tends to ask you if you want to download other IObit programs on a regular basis. Other than that I have no complaints.

Summary

Super all-in-one maintenance program. If you aren't a hardcore user and just want one simple program to keep your computer running well then this is it.

"Terrible product"

August 12, 2013  |  By DaveinNV

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.3.0.269

Pros

None whatsoever.

Cons

Capricious, unpredictable and messed up my computer.

Summary

I first installed its free version on my XP machine and did several cleanups without any visible problems although the imporvements were imperceptible. Then I installed the paid version and when I performed a deep cleaning all hell broke loose. Many of my quick launch icons became inoperable, a single click started launching multiple instances of the same program and so on. I had to delete all icons and re-install them. On top of that the program has a nasty habit of interrupting work without warning and starting doing things on its own. There were also frequent popups to buy a more advanced version. Finally I uninstalled the damn thing and good riddance. CNET should have done a better job of reviewing in my opinion.
