Editors' Review

Baidu PC Faster scans your PC deeply to find and delete junk files, unnecessary programs, and large files that sap and compromise performance. It can scan and optimize all areas with a single click or individually. With an attractive app-like interface, it's easy to use, too. This free tool's extras include the FasterNow desktop widget, Game Faster accelerator, App Store download manager, and Wi-Fi Hotspot.

Pros

Deep clean: PC Faster's Deep Clean option looks for Privacy vulnerabilities ranging from video files to Office apps and cleans traces that other programs miss.

Large files cleaner: PC Faster found numerous large files that we could safely delete, including installers, extracted archives, data logs, and temporary files -- including its own temporary files!

Medalist: While our results didn't exactly support Baidu's claim that our PC was running 106 percent faster after cleaning, our machine earned a Bronze Medal for being faster than most other users' PCs.

Cons

Virus Scan: While the included Virus Scan (Cloud, Full, Custom, Internet, and Game Scans) tool is hardly a detriment, it's not an alternative to a full antivirus solution, and we worry some users might see it as such.

Use with care: PC Faster can delete files, remove programs, change settings, and do other things that can compromise your PC, so be careful what you tell it to do.

Bottom Line

Baidu's PC Faster cleaned and boosted our system significantly without causing any problems, even when pushed to extremes. It's one of the more complete and better performing system cleaners we've tried.

"do not use, trys to take over ownership"

March 23, 2015  |  By cut harp

 |  Version: Baidu PC Faster 5.0.9.107990

Pros

it does speed up your system like cnet says it does

Cons

after I uninstalled it, I ran sfcscannow and had some problems that weren't resolved, read the cbs log file and found out that iolo which is baidu had tried to take over ownership of my pc, I don't know what I will have to do to fix this but the program is uninstalled from my pc I just have to fix the registry somehow cause sfcscannow couldn't fix the error of iolo trying to take over ownership.

Summary

I would not use this program for this major fact, I have used a lot of progams on cnet through the years but this is the only one that has ever tried to take over my pc, so I would stay away from it.

"maybe not worth it"

March 04, 2014  |  By ChoiceVoice

 |  Version: Baidu PC Faster 4.0.1.56500

Pros

-integrated virus scanner for demand scanning
-it did identify (and tell you what it identified) things to speed up system.
-backs up changes
-easy to use. pretty interface.

Cons

-questionable company (chinese competitors accuse it of fraud).
-extreme privacy concerns.
-did a system speedup on my notebook (win7 starter), did a virus scan after (eset online) and notebook crashed. it has never crashed before in 3 years. attempted a second time and crashed again. some change made something unstable.
-program is very invasive. it installs multiple startup items, and a new service. processes are always running and it is always accessing the internet (even if it isn't loaded). i turned off startup and service, but program reinserts itself. pain in the butt. all the running processes slows the computer and new startups slow boot. this undoes any benefit the programs changes might have had in the first place.
-installs other program, an app distribution program.

Summary

overflow for cons:

-web site indicates protection module and/or antivirus can interfere with your system antivirus. it recommends you remove yours.
-do not trust some features. has a system check for updates and identified several i supposedly need. however, windows update says my system is up to date. belarc advisor says my system is good.

"Great Multiple Uses"

November 30, 2013  |  By Imogen7Ryan

 |  Version: Baidu PC Faster 3.7.4.46462

Pros

It does indeed come with a 'Program Updater' which I found incredibly useful as it updates programs to the very latest versions notifying you.

The pop-up on load lets you know how your boot time is and allows you to speed up your machine easily and efficiently.

Cons

The updates can take some time.

Speeding up didn't do that much, but that could be because of how crammed my laptop is space wise.

Summary

I'm happy that I have it installed. It could be better I agree. But it's a free program to add to your collection of computing maintenance. As my boot time is slow, that tells me I need to free some space up :)

You have nothing to lose by installing it :)

"It came with a program update"

October 10, 2013  |  By mikechudej

 |  Version: Baidu PC Faster 3.6.0.3

Pros

do i really have to say any pro about this thing.

Cons

This program was bundled with the update of GOM player. I know that I should have read the terms first, but it was an update, which is the only thing I want not any extra.

When the company do that, it should be prominent and eye catching so I could detect it in a flash. Now, I have to uninstall it.
