Editors' Review

+

This isn't the most feature-packed Windows-optimization utility, nor the most effective, but we found it one of the easiest to control. Advanced WindowsCare's simple interface offers two main options: Repair and Repair And Optimize. The former fixes Registry entries and cleans out your operating system. The latter does the same thing and tweaks Windows for maximum performance.

If you run into trouble, the Restoration option can return your system to its original configuration. The Advanced menu provides fine control over repairs and optimizations. On the downside, we noticed only one improvement on our test PC: a reduced amount of used RAM. Also, the program's brief descriptions of system problems may not satisfy seasoned users. And although the latest version of the app includes a help file, we wouldn't call it extensive.

Nevertheless, if your system is running sluggishly and you're considering reinstalling Windows, it wouldn't hurt to try this freeware package first.

"If anything my 2 laptops run slower."

September 16, 2008  |  By soundad

 |  Version: Advanced WindowsCare Personal 2.8.1

Pros

Offers a variety of functions in a single product.

Cons

I've installed the paid version on 2 XP laptops. Both run slower than before. In fact at times, the system appears hung when I startup a new program. Mozilla Firefox has problems. It stops responding and doesn't get cleared from memory when closed.

Summary

The product has a lot of promise and certainly makes it look (with all the different functions) as if it covers everything that would be slowing a system down. Unfortunately, at least in my 2 cases, at best I get a nifty little monitor that is displayed in the tray that tells me when memory is low. At worst, it slows the initialization of programs to a crawl, especially Mozilla Firefox. Bottomline, don't expect much and you'll be satisfied.
