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.

"Great, but use with other PC Utility software."

April 15, 2010  |  By Monanri

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.17.0.776

Pros

Glary Utilities make a good addition to other PC utility software. It caught unnecesary files that CCleaner, and McAffee didn't catch. It has other cool features also that make this worth while.

Cons

It is good as an extra utility program, get CCleaner at least also. Use with some Micro Soft utility features or whatever u prefer.

Summary

I like this product, because I found it still useful. I use it with CCleaner, and Some of my Microsoft utilities. It is not a good stand alone program, but it did compliment my other PC utilities sofware. It has features that are not common in other PC utility software. Very useful, download it.

Nothing to complain about.

Summary

Best of its kind.

"Easy to utilitilize"

December 13, 2009  |  By heatcity65

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.17.0.776

Pros

Worked well did everything I needed it to do.

Cons

After running a deep scan with ThreatFire it was detected to have a Trojan Virus in the software. have no idea Cnet allowed that to get beyond there system. So now I have to get rid of the program. I have to delect it and quarateen the virus.

Summary

The virus is going to take full control of your system. I was wondering why it was running sluggish after all of the security I have up. Well the deep scan showed me why! The trojan virus is taking control, and now I have to remove the whole software. People please beware, it will take control and have you running alot slower then what you are use too.

"Easy to use especially for novices"

December 11, 2009  |  By bobridd

Pros

Easy one button clean up and fixes small problems--even some that are rare. Had a client with an Excel spreadsheet problem and after running this utility--everything worked fine!

Cons

Fixes problems but doesn't necessarily give much detail. great for novices but real geeks may want more in depth.

Summary

I use it on all of my clients computers that I can.
