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.

    "Looks good, undesirable results."

    March 20, 2010  |   By motmandre

    Version: Glary Utilities 2.20.0.831

    Pros

    Appears to have most of the features you would want in this kind of utility.

    Cons

    Found over 200 needed Registry entries that it claimed were not needed, that were crucial. Deleted apparently not temp files that left programs inoperable. Wants to delete shortcuts from start menu that are not broken links to real programs.

    Summary

    USE AT YOUR OWN RISK! Better yet don't use this program. Check every file, shortcut and registry entry before deleting. Make sure you have created system restore point.

    Pros

    About the easiest program I've ever downloaded.
    Great tools to use and up front categories.

    Not a thing.

    Summary

    Didn't expect to get so much for free. Very impressed.

    "Fast & Easy Program but make sure you READ directions!"

    March 17, 2010  |   By dinkdavenport330

    Version: Glary Utilities 2.20.0.831

    Pros

    Fast, thorough, easy to use. Thank God it also includes a recover files function too! I found this program before MS released their program so I plan to stick with Glary Utilties until MS gives me a better reason.

    Cons

    You must READ carefully what files that you want "cleaned" from your computer or you could end up with lost pictures. If you use anything more than the 1 touch maintenance and the defrag (which is all you need) make sure you know what you are doing!

    Summary

    I absolutely love Glary Utility software. I was a tad upset that the verbiage changed when cleaning other drives (flash drives) without my realizing it but this glitch seems to have been worked out in the newest updates. If you aren't a "computer geek" stick to the 1 touch maintenance and on the next tab use the Defrag to stay safe. If you are a novice you will absolutely LOVE this software but make sure to read all options thoroughly. It's absolutely the best I've found and even has a recover files option if you are one of those people who doesn't thoroughly check out what the program is going to delete or repair. Thank you so much!
