Editors' Review

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.

"Perfect solution for any Vista user"

March 06, 2009  |  By buco55

 |  Version: Advanced Vista Optimizer 2009 3.5

Pros

Quick, full featured, really does what it should do.

Cons

Comes bundeled with advanced system protectior - a spyware removal program that is in trial even if you purchase the full version of advanced vista optimizer.

Summary

I bought this program through trialpay a couple of weeks back. I have been using it constatnly for the last 3/4 weeks and I can see a lot of positive improvements to my Vista system. The program cleans all unnecessary files, cookies, history etc. from the system without a glitch. It then optimizes the registry and the hard drive.
At the same time, for any Vista user, it gives you the opportunity to tweak Vista in the way that you want it ... cursor speed, mouse position, appearance just to name a few.
Generally - highly recommended for anyone.

"Looks great but has the drawbacks of tweaking programs"

February 08, 2009  |  By subsidence

 |  Version: Advanced Vista Optimizer 2009 3.5

Pros

Easy installation and user interface. Has a lot of tweaking possibilities.

Cons

The one click system to clean up your computer makes sure you loose a lot of useful information like cookies and favorites, unless items are checked one by one, which is a cumbersome task.

Summary

Good looking program but with the usual drawback of tweaking programs. It does remove useful information without warning and gives little expalnation of what it is doing.. also there is no evident improvement in perfomance, at least as far as I noticed on my 3Ghz, 3Gb RAM machine.

"a good tool for vista"

February 01, 2009  |  By axebox3983

 |  Version: Advanced Vista Optimizer 2009 3.5

Pros

the trial is better. i had vista optimizer 2008 and it was a bad trial. this is a fully functional trial. works very well. the disk tool is very good. the single click is sensible. thats what i use this for. havent explored the other tools.

Cons

havent explored the other tools. used single click, which is good. it doesnt have power tools as described.

Summary

it is a good set. depends on what is your need. if you want to do regular maintenance, i think this is the best tool. no hassle, single click. for advanced tools, i have not explored it and i dont need advanced options anyways. i believe my pc needs basic optimizer and this works perfect. no issue so far. i use 32 bit, so dont know about 64 bit issue!
i recommend systweak vista optimizer 2009.

"They Make Good Programs, but....."

January 31, 2009  |  By hnavp66

 |  Version: Advanced Vista Optimizer 2009 3.5

Pros

Works while it's installed

Cons

Killed my XP OS when you uninstalled, so Vista users be aware of this possibility.

Summary

Generally Systweak makes programs that work, but, when I uninstalled the XP version a few years ago my system crashed completely. Computer was no longer usable. And it wasn't just me, I later found other users that had the same experience. If you decide not to keep it, make sure you have everything backed up, along with recovery disks.
