Glary Utilities

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.

    "Will NOT live with out it !"

    June 8, 2009  |   By SBQDawn

    Version: Glary Utilities 2.11.0.638

    Pros

    Easy and Safe to use unlike some 3rd party utilities you do not need to be a Geek or a Tech Support to use it with confidence. Nothing get's deleted without a backup made or a log so you can undo it if need be safe for newbie users too !

    Cons

    haven't come across anything I don't like about it yet

    Summary

    If you are an old hat or completely new at anything to do with computers THIS is the utility you NEED. Learn what to do to keep your system functioning faster, cleaner, with better use of your available memory. This program has saved me money time and again. keeps my system Cleaned up Secure and running like new. I run a quick scan every night before shutting down and deeper specific scans if I notice a change or start having a memory use slow down type issues. I run a lot of graphics manipulation programs on my Vista and when things start to get slow I run a quick scan or check my memory usage and Glary's get's me back in full swing in minutes. I Love this utility and will NOT own a PC or Laptop with out having Glary-utlities on hand. Worked great on XP and Vista is now my operating system no problems running it on either I have the utmost faith that whatever Microsoft throws at me next in Operating Systems Glary's will be compatible with it and help keep it safe, clean and running ! Yeah for Up time !!!

    "Outstanding for a free set of utilities"

    April 13, 2009  |   By charles_cope

    Version: Glary Utilities 2.11.0.638

    Pros

    Does everything the paid for ones do.

    Cons

    As with all registry cleaners, take care when deleting "unused" entries. You occasionally find that they are needed by some programs after all, and it is certain to be a program you only use occasionally (eg Roxio creator 10) .

    Summary

    Good user interface and very easy to use for both new and advanced users. Highly recommended.
