Editors' Review

+

This powerful application offers extensive utilities to improve your system's performance and protect your privacy. Glary Utilities' well-organized interface allows users to easily choose from several tools. It cleans unwanted junk files and removes invalid and broken shortcuts, freeing up valuable disk space.

Its Registry cleaner allows you to scan, remove, and back up faulty Registry entries. You also can wipe out online and Windows traces, although Internet Explorer is the only browser in which this function is supported. To improve the speed of your computer, Glary Utilities offers tools to manage start-up programs and memory optimization. Privacy-conscious users will certainly appreciate its inclusion of a government-standard file shredder to securely delete data.

Overall, users who are looking for an effective and easy-to-use application to keep their system in tip-top shape should try this one out.

"Old School Graduates To Higher Learning"

June 21, 2008  |  By ritchie58

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.5.3

Pros

I have been using Glarysoft's software for some time now. What was once multiple applications is now incorporated into a single program, saving you disk space. Some new features are included as well in this app. Simply put this program gives you the tools needed to help keep your computer lean and mean. Plus it's FREE!

Cons

I have found one bug in an otherwise excellent bunch of code. Once you run a cleaning with the Tracks Eraser located in the Modules tab it will no longer work in the 1 - Click Maintenance scan. It will not delete detected items. You have to run the Tracks Eraser manually through the Modules tab.

"Fast, efficient, small footprint,low resource usage & FREE"

July 15, 2008  |  By chamarith

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.5.3

Pros

It is a pleasure to write the first review of this software. I am very impressed with it for the reasons stated above. One of the features that I like the most is the Process Manager. I use two other programs for process monitoring, but this one is fast and very intuitive. If the Windows Task Manager is the only program that you have used for this purpose you will be impressed.

I downloaded two free trials of other programs, but they cost $30 and didn't do anything better than this program.

There is no disk defragmenter in this program, but you can get that from another free program. Try Auslogics Disk Defragmenter.

That sums it up for me. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

Cons

It doesn't have a disk defragmenter.

"AVOID AT ALL COSTS!"

July 08, 2008  |  By ohioprof

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.5.3

Pros

The first time I used this software, my pc seemed to be much more efficient. The second time I used it (just a week later), it deleted a vital start-up command. Now, I cannot log in. I will have to take the pc to a repairman to add what GLARY deleted.

So much for the 5 star rating!

Cons

I will never trust a Download.com recommendation again.
