Editors' Review

Glary Utilities Pro combines multiple maintenance tools for your Windows desktop so you can measure, enhance, and adjust performance. This combination of tools may seem overwhelming to casual users, but for intermediate or power users, Glary offers a range of options for optimizing your machine in a clean, accessible interface.

Pros

Clean interface, accessible tools: Glary Utilities opens quickly and runs quietly in the background until you close it. The interface is clean and accessible, and there are plenty of options. The display is icon-based, which can make finding a specific menu hard at times, but it's generally easy to get what you need.

Range of efficient tools: Glary Utilities Pro offers a huge number of tools in various categories, including Registry repair, disk space, malware removal, privacy enhancement, and system controls. If you don't want to dig through it all, the one-click maintenance option is a fast solution when your computer gets bogged down.

Cons

Lack of labels and troubleshooting: If you're new to advanced maintenance tools and have questions, you may find it frustrating that Glary lacks labels on menus and the Help menu is buried, leading to a separate website in your browser.

Bottom Line

Overall, Glary Utilities Pro is a good example of how to bring stodgy maintenance and application support tools into the era of clean, accessible design. It's pleasant to look at, quick to operate, and loaded with tools. The price is incredibly reasonable after the 30-day trial, and it will make your computer run more efficiently. What more can you ask for?

"One Utility to rule them all."

October 04, 2014  |  By gaknak

 |  Version: Glary Utilities Pro 5.4

Pros

Fast, Very easy to customize, Reliable, and Complete.

Cons

There really aren't any. There are frequent updates, about once per month, and that can be inconvenient but it indicates that product is under active development.

Summary

Glary Utilities Pro is one of the few pieces of software that I gladly paid for. I have used it for over 3 years and it has never let me down.

"Almost Perfect"

June 25, 2014  |  By BearPuppy

 |  Version: Glary Utilities Pro 4.7.0.96

Pros

The amount of available tools is truly staggering for the price. Best tool is the Software Update tool which will alert you when software you have on your machine gets an update (even Betas if you want) - no need for an external site or service. I also like the degree of control you can elect, from full manual control of every tool and item in the package, to complete 1-click operation, to any mixture you choose.

Cons

As mentioned in the CNET review there is a complete lack of labels, making tool selection a tedious try and learn-to-remember process, especially the advanced tools along the bottom row.

Summary

Despite the label shortcoming, it truly is a one-tool-does-all utility. In fact it is the one utility I have on my system. Is it really that good? Yes it is; I'm an end-user, and I have a lifetime license.

"Ignore 30% discount -- better "special" deal from Clary"

May 03, 2014  |  By richrider

 |  Version: Glary Utilities Pro 4.7.0.96

Pros

With a DEEP discount, the Pro is likely a good deal, BUT . . . .

Cons

At list price -- or the (here often) touted, modest 30% -- it's a questionable value, BUT . . . .

Summary

If you sign up for the free basic, it won't be long before you periodically get an online free offer for the Pro version: $11.99 for a subscription good for up to THREE computers. The list price is $40 for one computer. The touted (spam) discount flooding the user comments (under the CNET review) results in ONE computer pro license for $28.

At $12 ($4 each computer), the Pro version is a sweet deal. Even if the additional Pro benefit is questionable (see many other conflicting reviews on this), I have no problem paying these folks a modest amount for their overall product, which for most is a first rate software suite.

NOTE: Be cautious when RENEWING this deep discount offer. I suspect that the renewal will be at a MUCH higher price. Caveat emptor.

Updated on May 3, 2014

One pleasant aspect of this software is that it doesn't try to trick you into installing bloatware, malware, crapware, etc. Too many "free" programs do.

"Glary Utilities Pro is a Ripoff"

March 06, 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 07, 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.
