Glary Utilities Pro

CNET Editors' review

Glarysoft's Glary Utilities is one of the most consistently popular and most frequently recommended system utilities, and why not? It bundles some of the most useful Windows-related tools in one free download. It scans and cleans your PC, cleaning temporary files, removing junk files, fixing broken shortcuts, and resolving a wide range of issues, both major and minor, that most Windows users will have no trouble recognizing. You can configure its One-Click Maintenance option to run just those processes you want with a single click, making regular maintenance just too easy for excuses. You can run any of its many tools individually, too.

Glary Utilities has a basic but colorful (and skinnable) dialog-sized interface with tabs for Status, 1-Click Maintenance, and Modules. Under Modules, Glary groups a wide variety of tools under a series of headings, some of which access the same tools from different categories: Clean & Repair, Optimize & Improve, Privacy & Security; Files & Folders; and System Tools. We clicked Scan on the 1-Click Maintenance tab, which initiated a system-wide scan for junk files, spyware, and lots of other stuff that we needed to fix or throw out: sort of like cleaning the basement, actually. Glary Utilities displayed its summary findings, and we could click to view details or just press Repair Problems to fix the lot, which we did. The tool swiftly purged our system of the obsolete, unneeded, and junk data that can clog your machine over time, compromising performance and even security.

The 1-Click Maintenance is reason enough to keep Glary Utilities and run it regularly, but more excellent reasons can be found in its Modules, which let you run Glary's utilities individually as well as access many more tools, including a file shredder, startup manager, memory optimizer, registry defragmenter, and file recover and undelete tool. It also lets you run a variety of Windows utilities from Glary's interface, including the Process Manager and System Information. Running tools like the Duplicate File Finder now and again and the 1-Click Maintenance regularly will help keep your PC running fast, smooth, and safe. We recommend Glary Utilities to all Windows users.

    "Glary Utilities Pro is a Ripoff"

    March 6, 2014  |   By ButterySmooth

    Version: Glary Utilities Pro 4.1.0.61

    Pros

    Glary Utilities Basic is great. Pro is not.

    Cons

    Non-existent technical support. My technical support person knew as much about computers as a dinosaur.

    Summary

    Stick to Glary Utilities Basic. No sense in wasting money on Glary Utilities Pro.

    "It does an ok job, but doesn't live up to expectations"

    November 17, 2013  |   By Prof321

    Version: Glary Utilities Pro 3.9.0.137

    Pros

    Glary Utilities Pro does many basic tasks well, such as registry repair, disk cleanup etc.

    Cons

    But its duplicate file finder and remover does not work properly. Oh it finds all the duplicates and the check intelligent feature will mark the superfluous ones, but it will not delete checked files.

    "Excellent program"

    November 7, 2013  |  

    Version: Glary Utilities Pro 3.9.0.137

    Pros

    A one tool easy to use cleaner. You can set up the main Interface to do most major cleaning jobs. From registry cleaning to spyware removing. The advanced tools are broken up into sections with easy to use instructions. I think it's a much better all-around utility than its competitors. Ausus Logic system boost, advanced system cleaner. These two system utilities can be dangerous If you are not an advanced system user. It's too easy to remove necessary programs. With this program anyone can use it and not worry about removing unnecessary programs. I have been using the free program but it is worth purchasing the Pro version.

    Cons

    The only con is you have to be careful with the duplicate file cleaner you may remove something that you actually need. So unless you are an advanced computer person I would not use this particular tool.

    Summary

    this program either free or the Pro version is well worth having on your machine. I have this particular program and CC cleaner and my has never run better.
