Editors' Review

+

Glary Utilities is a comprehensive system cleaner and performance booster for your PC that includes an excellent suite of tools. You can take advantage of 1-Click Maintenance, or pick and choose the operations you'd like the app to perform, all through its streamlined and intuitive interface.

Pros

Customizable maintenance: Even the 1-Click Maintenance option lets you choose what you'd like to include in your scan. Choose from options that include Registry Cleaner, Shortcuts Fixer, Spyware Remover, and Startup Manager, and then complete all of the selected items with a single click on all future uses. You can also adjust these selections at any time.

Windows boot time: Another nice feature of this app is the Windows Boot Time monitor that displays right in the middle of the main interface window. Here, you'll see the total time Windows currently takes to boot on your computer, along with stats telling you where that time ranks among all Windows users. If you're looking to improve your boot time, you can access and manage a list of the programs that load on Windows startup, and you can select programs for delayed start to help improve performance.

Cons

Not so speedy: Some operations and scans this program completed during testing took a little longer than they did in other similar programs we've tested. But none of the completion times were excessively long in the slightest.

Bottom Line

Glary Utilities offers a lot of functionality through an accessible interface, even in the free version. If you'd like to unlock some of the more powerful features, like Deep Clean and Fix and Automatic Maintenance, you'll have to upgrade to the Pro version for $39.95. This purchase price covers a one-year subscription for up to three PCs.

"Great program, light and free!"

January 14, 2015  |  By kevin.s.r22

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 5.16.0.29

Pros

This program is amazing, it has made my PC run like new so many times when garbage programs were in the O.S or traces from old programs. I just freed up around 10 GBs of HDD space becuase it was taken from old programs and useless dead folders and registry keys. The program lets you control your OS, almost all of it. My PC gets very slow sometimes and I just open this, check some things and leaves my PC running like new again. I also like the fact that it lets you see how fast your OS boots, which for me is important.

I am not a fan of scheduled maintenance, I prefer to control it myself. I really dont feel that I need the pro version of this program. The free version beats programs like TuneUp IMO.

Cons

Sometimes the interface can be a bit complicated.

Summary

Overall, great program for Windows maintenance, its not intrusive and everything in it works, not like some programs, that you click an option and it opens you a web browser page telling you that X option is only for pro users.

"Did not work for me."

November 03, 2014  |  By Mikey8929

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 5.11.0.23

Pros

I can find nothing good.

Cons

Says there are registry errors when there are not. Says programs need updating when they do not. I will not trust any program that installs other programs without permission. And this is what happened.

"Okayish. Remo More & CCleaner are much better."

August 19, 2014  |  By Frubello82

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 5.6.0.13

Pros

Lots of tweaks available. Some of them are only available for the paid users though. User interface is clean and response time is pretty slick.

Cons

Feels incomplete even though there are dozens of functions!

Summary

Used to be better. They really need to step up their game. There are new players like Advanced System Care, CCleaner, Remo More etc, Tune-Up utilities and many others.

"Glary is blocked by Chrome"

July 09, 2014  |  By tdisme

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 5.3.0.8

Pros

IDK .... (6:30 am)

Cons

Chrome just blocked a download as malicious. The same download couldnt be saved to the intended site due to permissions.

Permissions problems, for me, seem to be pervasive, returning constantly no matter what I do (Computer Kudzu?)

Summary

I am sick to death with fixing stuff on the computer and will probably dump the program for that reason. It should get by Chrome without a malicious rating.
As for the permissions problem.....aaarrrggghhhh!!!!!

"May work, but problems with subscription cutting short."

June 15, 2014  |  By gentleben

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 5.1.0.4

Pros

I've been using Glary Utilities for a long time. It appears to do the jobs it purports.

Cons

I have purchased the Pro one year subscription twice, once on one computer, and once much later on another computer. In both cases, the Pro status disappeared long before the year was up and the program started bugging me to pay for it again. As of the writing of this review, I have forwarded me purchase receipt to Glarysoft to investigate. My purchase was 9 months ago and the subscription seemed to have lost itself approximately the time of upgrade to version 5.

Summary

The subscription issue is a deal breaker.
