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.

"Finally! A free, easy to use, Power Tool"

February 14, 2009  |  By apaggeot

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.8.366

Pros

Glary did exactly what I needed it to do, fast, simple, free. And it comes with lots of extras. I have used Glary over and over again since downloading it.

Cons

None for now. I am sure something will come up eventually though.

Summary

Glary replaced five other programs that I used. I liked them, but why have tons of programs when Glary can do it all.

"It works as described."

February 12, 2009  |  By dhuebler

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.8.366

Pros

It does everything as stated in the product description and does it very fast. It allows you to run each task separately if you need to. This is the second version i've used with no problems.

Cons

Newest version changes your search engine to Ask which I didn't like. But it is deletable so you can switch back to the search engine you like.

Summary

The best registry cleaner I've used yet. Plus it is FREE! Try it, you'll like it.
