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.

"A very good one-click utility tool"

July 20, 2010  |  By Timothy Anjili

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.23.0.923

Pros

I love its one-click maintenance functionality. Throw in a simple light virus/worm remover.

Cons

I wish it could improve to accelerating/boosting one's internet connectivity

Summary

It saved me from accumulating numerous maintenance tools. I ended up with quite a large number of tools before Glary Utilities came up. Its a win for all who care about their machines. Bravo and keep it up

"An excellent utility program!"

July 08, 2010  |  By alphaman3

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.23.0.923

Pros

Neat, comprehensive, and has a very moderate MB size; but does an awful lot. This is possibly the third or fourht incarnation of this very fine program for the optimizaton and performance of my PC.

Cons

I can't think of any problems; it has been improved from the second version, that I know of as far as I can surmise.

Summary

One of the best free limited Utility programs out there from the Internet. If it was available in a retail store I would definitely purchase Glary Utilities Pro version.

"Extremely fine set of tools"

June 26, 2010  |  By GERRY RAINS

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.23.0.923

Pros

It is a fine set of of utilities and they cover a wide range of tools. Encryption, all sorts of scanning, file splitting, etc. You'd have to make a major effort to find these tools separately.. Glary Utilities has done that for you.

None whatsoever

For almost everybody this is a must-have package of tools.

"The best software"

June 23, 2010  |  By sharmasvsnd

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.23.0.923

Pros

Very very useful, easily understandable, all functions are available in this software. After using this software my system is in the best condition, which I did not expected.

Cons

Nothing to comment except to say the best software

Summary

Most of the freeware will give some benefits only & leave a message to buy product to use full functions. Where as in this software it is not like that. I am very much happy for using this software. My system is running very well like a brand new, which I have purchased just now. Hats of to the inventor of this software & Glary Utilities. And so many thanks to Cnet for offering this soft ware. DEFINITELY THIS IS THE BEST FREE WARE FOR HOME USE WHICH HAVE ALL FUNCTIONS IN ONE PLACE & NEED NOT GO FOR SO MANY SOFTWARE FOR THESE FUNCTIONS AND MAKE TRIALS. EVERYONE CAN USE WITHOUT ANY HESITATION & DOUBTS.
