"v6 is broken"
Up through ASC 5, the program was a good go-to to conveniently repair a lot of the more troublesome minor issues Windows PCs develop over time.
ASC 6 seems to break Windows 7 on HP machines. If you have an HP desktop computer, do not use any of ASC 6's options except Privacy Sweep and Defrag; all other options have been observed to irreparably break Windows 7 installations within 1-5 uses of the software.
For those who don't fully understand what "irreparably break Windows 7" means, on HP machines with OEM Windows 7 installations, it wipes out several .dll files vital to the functionality of HP's OEM Windows software, erases all windows recovery points, and nearly all registry data for Microsoft Office and all bundled HP software.
If you know what you're doing in DOS, have all of Windows 7's .dlls backed up, and can figure out and replace what's missing, you can get your installation working again with a great deal of difficulty, if not, here's hoping you have your factory reinstallation discs, because the recovery console can't even restore your system to factory settings without the .dll files.
If you don't have an HP computer, be wary of ASC 6, as it clearly has some major bugs. If you have an HP and like the convenience and reliability Advanced SystemCare has demonstrated over the years as a convenient PC tune-up tool, find yourself a copy of ASC 5 and forget 6 ever existed until IObit fixes it.
