Editors' Review

+

Advanced SystemCare Free is a Swiss Army Knife of a PC utility. It comes with a suite of optimization tools, including an uninstaller, one-click registry fixes, defragmenters, and more.

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.

Bottom Line:

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.

"Now Rate at ZERO"

November 18, 2013  |  By ddrakiotes

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 7.0.6.361

Pros

The program works great.

Cons

If you do not pay very close attention, while loading the program it has changed from asking you to un-check the box if you do not want to load additional software to a choice of decline or accept& install the Yahoo search. I did not catch this and my browsers home pages where taken over by "Spibot". The only way I found to remove was a system restore to an earlier date.

Summary

The change from "un-check the box" to "decline, accept" makes this a deal breaker for me because of being so ambiguous in nature. That and there is now easy way to fix.

"Forget this one"

November 16, 2013  |  By unclepoo2

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 7.0.6.361

Pros

No Pros that I can think of

Cons

Does not offer to create a system restore point for you on the first run. Leaves the folder and much of it behind after uninstall.

Summary

I loved the old Advanced Windowscare V2 personal that Iobit had, Easy to use, and very intuitive, It had also had features to immunize your system from known infectious websites. The best feature of that program was the startup manager which with one click could let you find recommendations on whether a program should start when windows does. The only bad part of that program was the Registry cleaner, which is somewhat agressive, so I didn't use it.

After installing Advanced System Care, I was unable this last time to uninstall it, and had to do a system restore. I also found folders from previous versions of this program which were uninstalled, but left the folders and much of the trash in it wasting my space.
I recommend you use Ccleaner and Malwarebytes, and stay away from Iobit's Advanced System Care

Complete and intuitive, besides offering several advanced tools such as defragmenter, registry cleanup and recovery systema!

Could there be a message asking if the User would like to use the advanced tools immediately after the scan and repair the standard mode

"The best software out there."

November 14, 2013  |  By supaslick88

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 7.0.6.361

Pros

One click Scan that optimizes, cleans, and speeds up computer with like 12 different things. It has internet boost, turbo boost, and many other features. The program is full of easy to use features in it's toolbox for the better of your computer. Among many new features in v.7, Driver Boost, so you don't have to go buy another program for updating/maintaining driver.

Cons

The only con I can think of is its Malware Fighter it tries to sell you. They might have a free version too. IOBIT is just not any good on anti-malware programs, they get horrible reviews and I've seen the tests on youtube.com where it lets all sorts of stuff go right by. No antivirus program included. Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 6 had bitdefender built in so it saved you a step in not having to get an anti-virus program.

Summary

This All IN ONE package aims to please. It will clean up your system and have it as quick as the day you bought it. Just remember your going to have to buy/get free an anti-virus program and I strongly suggest uninstalling Malware Fighter and getting a good one like MBAM.

"My favorite program, one which I rely on"

November 14, 2013  |  By NSlone

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 7.0.6.361

Pros

I've had this program since 2011, and I have found no fault with it at any time. If I need support, the techs are always right there. Advanced System Pro, any version, at least since I started using it, wins over any others hands down. I recommend it to other people who ask me about problems with their PCs.

Cons

What cons? I haven't found any.

Summary

This is my must have program in my repair and general maintenance toolbox. It keeps my laptop running smoothly.

"New version (7) is junk."

November 14, 2013  |  By Coastal52

 |  Version: Advanced SystemCare 7.0.6.361

Pros

None that I had time to see.

Cons

I'm still trying to get rid of all of the browser extensions, add-ons and tool bars that this piece of junk installed in my system.

Summary

Version 6 was okay... This new version sucks.

Updated on Nov 15, 2013

Update to bump the shills...

DO NOT DL THE FREE VERSION OF THIS PROGRAM!! (version 7)

I'm still pulling junk out of my registry. The agreement to install all of the browser hijackers is buried in the EULA. Even after the uninstall, I'm still pulling junk out of registry and settings.
