Advanced Vista Optimizer consolidates into one dashboard numerous system-tweaking and configuration tools, from the basic to the advanced. The features cover the bases, including disk and Registry defragging, program prefetching and the proprietary Superfetching, start-up and shutdown tweaks, optimization adjustments for performance, memory, and hardware, an uninstaller, and a file splitter and joiner.

Designed to resemble Vista's Windows Explorer layout, the interface makes clever use of a breadcrumb trail at the top to make it easier to navigate back to any previously-visited level. Below the breadcrumb bar, the main window has been split into two levels. The top pane contains feature information about the tool you're currently looking at, and a static panel detailing current system settings such as last optimization date, available RAM, and OS version--Windows Vista Enterprise, for example.

AVO offers one other feature, a Single Click Care that blasts through both its initial scan and the subsequent clean-up. The start button for this cumulative scan that rounds up all optimization features except for defragmentation appears in the main window for the program, ensuring a quick start. In our tests, the initial scan took about 90 seconds to discover what it considered more than 2000 problem points, and the corrective clean-up took about four minutes. A system restart is required for changes to take effect.

As is occasionally common in these omnitool programs, some of AVO's components could be more thoroughly fleshed out. The Disk Defragger, for example, lacks a progress bar and is not the fastest defragger we've seen, although it is effective. Nevertheless, users who want a comprehensive round-up of tools and utilities accessible from one familiar interface should find Advanced Vista Optimizer to be worth the investment.
