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.

"I use it for a lot of the cleanup things I need to do"

November 02, 2009  |  By Dixon Blackmer

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.16.0.758

Pros

It provides an easy and sensible method for a number of mundane jobs that are difficult to remember how to do using Windows. I no longer have to thrash around trying to find the options I need. Being on my desktop also helps me remember to do them.

Cons

Can't think of a thing.

"For anyone who wants 2 take control of their PC, GET IT"

October 31, 2009  |  By daddyjames76

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.16.0.758

Pros

Free for personal use, A Near-indispensable app, especially for geeks like me. Pretty much all you could ever need to keep your PC up & running. I use it at least once each day. I also put it on my customers pc's. great program. DOWNLOAD IT!!!!

Cons

none so far I've been using it for a long time

Summary

This excellent free tool promises one-click cleanup and optimization and it delivers. It scans your system for problems with your Registry, shortcuts, startup programs, and spyware, and then gives you the option of which to clean up. It also deletes traces of your Internet surfing and cleans up temporary files.
Its cleanup and repair tools include a Registry cleaner, as well as a disk cleaner, and also a shortcuts fixer that corrects any shortcut errors on your Desktop or Start menu. Among its optimization tools are a startup manager, and a very good context menu manager for editing the right-click context menu that appears when you click a file.

There's also a file shredder, encryption tools, a tool for cleaning up your Internet traces--the list could go on for a long time.

"search add on"

October 30, 2009  |  By othast1

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.16.0.758

Pros

I didn't get to try the cleaner, as I was installing, I saw my search engine was to be changed to ask and also a tool bar was to be installed I stopped everything.

Cons

Why could we not have a choice about the toolbar or the search engine being installed. I feel sure the registry cleaner is a good one but I don't was ask for my search engine. Nor Do I need another tool bar.
