Advanced SystemCare

CNET 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.

    "Computer-related problems reduced to zero"

    October 23, 2013  |   By ranarciso

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.4.0.292

    Pros

    Since I started using Advanced SystemCare the problems I faced while using my computer were reduced to zero. It detects malware, registry problems, mistaken configurations, slowdowns, disc errors, internet connection problems/slowdowns, it detects and repairs Windows problems, cleans temporary/garbage files, etc. Simply perfect!

    Cons

    So far I saw no cons to the application. It is the best in this category.

    Summary

    I started using Advanced SystemCare as a free user. Of course there were limitations on the capacity of the free version of my application. I bought a license and since then I never wasted time trying to guess what was wrong in the computer or in the configurations.

    "The best system optimizer I ever seen."

    October 23, 2013  |   By jeans7229

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.4.0.292

    Pros

    Intuitive interface, flexible settings. Completely satisfied with the knowledge that my computer is safe after this scan.
    And I found 25% discount for SystemCare PRO here:
    www.programdiscounts.com/advanced_systemcare_pro.htm

    Cons

    I use this program in conjunction with 2 others as well. This one has a few extras built into it that I like is why I use it. It MAY not catch all of the malware in my PC, but between all 3 of them, I think they do.

    Summary

    I have this on all my PC's and the customer support is top notch.

    "Works like a charm."

    October 22, 2013  |   By alaskagram

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 6.4.0.292

    Pros

    This is the 1st speed up app. I have used that works.It plays well with my AVAST cleaning up what it finds and reparing malware.

    Cons

    Can't find any.

    Summary

    This works so well that I am thinking of going with the paid version.If you have more than a few apps. on your system this is a must.I do video editing and the turbo mode has decreased the rendering time by at least 25%. Currently I was using "Kill It All", ASC 6 is dramaticly faster and more stable in the long long.

    It works great
