Editors' review

Pros:

Lots of Tools: IOBit's everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach to Advanced SystemCare means you're bound to find something useful for your machine in its massive library of tools, tweakers, and cleaners.

One-Click Fix: Despite its daunting list of options, users shouldn't have trouble finding some kind of fix-all option. When in doubt, most users will probably opt for just that.

Cons:

Lackluster Redesign: Claims of a Metro-friendly redesign amount to nothing more than color changes, font tweaks to a thinner sans-serif type, and icon packs. Many tools are shortcuts to separate applications that are visually inconsistent and offer questionable value over default tools.

Tedious Uninstallation: Advanced SystemCare's setup is like a collection of shortcuts to other downloads. SystemCare's toolbox behaves more like a glorified stub installer for IOBit's other products than a true all-in-one program. Even after uninstalling SystemCare, you're forced to uninstall each individual app separately.

Final Verdict:

At first glance, Advanced SystemCare has everything you would think you'd ever need to keep a PC in tip-top shape: uninstallers, driver updaters, and so on. However, not all are better alternatives than their stock counterparts. For example, the Windows 8 Process Explorer is a much more usable solution.

Advanced SystemCare's user experience is a mixed bag. We didn't have any trouble opting for a one-click-fix solution for many of our computer "issues," but we took that option because of information overload.

If you have absolutely no security or tweaking tools, then it might be worth taking a look at Advanced SystemCare. The uninstallation process is tedious and inefficient, because the product treats each feature as a separate app. For defrag tools, malware protection, and even process explorers, we recommend downloading separate alternatives that offer a more focused but higher-quality approach to their respective tasks.

    "Lots of tools - One Click fix."

    July 20, 2014   |   By Rogueten10

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 7.3.0.457

    Pros

    Easy Interface, lots of tools, short learning curve

    Cons

    None at this time.

    Summary

    I have been using another program for over five years. This is the best $20 software I have ever made! It is a very comprehensive software program that keeps my (your) PC running smoothly. The interface is user friendly and it doesn't require a long learning curve to understand or to use. I would recommend Advanced System Care to everyone.

    Pros

    I have been using ASC Pro for over a year (started with the free vesion and liked it so much I bought the Pro) Being in IT a lot of the problems that people come to me about their PC's ASC Pro will take care of.

The interface is user friendly and does't require a degree to understand or to use. Very user friendly!

    Cons

    None at all!

    Summary

    I highly recommend this product to anyone that has a PC. Try the free version for a while and I am certain you will see the benefit of going Pro!
