Advanced SystemCare

CNET 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.

    "This is my favorite system cleaner, and more.!!!"

    November 12, 2013  |   By jberrier1

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 7.0.5.360

    Pros

    For a casual user such as myself, being somewhat "computer" lazy, I find ASC to be of great benefit. Keeps my computer humming like new, with just the click of the mouse. I have had no adverse effects when ASC removes "found" problems, for which I am thankful. Highly recommend ASC.

    Cons

    Given the multitude of things ASC does, it could be a little intimidating for casual users. Just be careful when using the tools part.

    "Used to be good"

    November 12, 2013  |   By batsdude

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 7.0.5.360

    Pros

    Used to have a lot of features in the "free" version.

    Cons

    The error results seem to be scripted and not real. The defrag stinks. Way too many pop up advertisements, offers, etc. It has "features which start themselves at boot which just won't turn off or reset to NOT run no matter what you do.

    Summary

    You can get EVERY "feature" of this and better done in a LOT of free programs. It just does not seem to do all that much anymore that make it worth the hassles it causes.

    "Excellent collection of computer care tools"

    November 11, 2013  |   By Sudhir_Kulkarni

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 7.0.5.360

    Pros

    The program offers a good collection of tools in one place.
    Auto cleaning facility is useful and you do not have to remember to run the care program
    The customer care cell is responsive and prompt.

    Cons

    Like most companies tries to push their on home page, which I do not approve.

    Summary

    Good investment

    "I absolutley love Advanced SystemCare"

    November 11, 2013  |   By SJwalkinfree

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 7.0.5.360

    Pros

    It lets you know when it is time to run a scan

    Cons

    The only thing I dont like is the auto clean, it starts whith the start up of your system and seems to mess up my computer so I dont use it.However it could be my old, slow PC and nothing to do with SystemCare.

    Summary

    This is a wonderful product I recomend it, if you havent tried it, you should you will switch from whetever you are currently using !

    "Doesn't fully intialize, hangs."

    November 11, 2013  |   By robotnik_p

    Version: Advanced SystemCare 7.0.5.360

    Pros

    None. It doesn't work I've used different versions of Iobit's ASC before, with mixed results. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad. This one didn't work for me. When I try to initialize, I get a ghostly outline that will not go away until my task manager kills it. The previous version worked OK. I'm using Windows Vista.

    Cons

    It just won't work for me, so I uninstalled it and the other Iobit products from my computer. I'll look for something else.

    Summary

    Iobit and my PC have had a checkered history. Every new version brings its own quirks. This one won't even initialize properly, so I killed it.

    Updated on Nov 11, 2013

    I want to make clear that my review is not about ASC 6, which worked fine. My negative review was about Version 7.
