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.

February 16, 2009  |  By krusty32

 |  Version: Advanced WindowsCare Personal 2.9

Pros

Very easy to use for n00bs like me.

Cons

Found none yet

Summary

I really wanted to disable some startup items but didnt want o play with msconfig.
I used the startup thing and just ticked the ppropriate boxes speeding up startup time.Also as a n00b did not want to play with the registry,this did it for me.
Using Vista the windows defrag is crap (cant see the progress)with thi program I can actually se what is happening.
