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.

"Not perfect but eliminates a lot of work"

October 16, 2010

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.28.0.1011

Pros

Very easy to use...the "1-Click Maintenance" function takes care of most issues

Cons

Running it once doesn't clean up everything, I usually have to run it twice and even then it often fails to repair some things in the "Shortcuts Fixer"

Summary

Runs quickly and eliminates a lot of work I would normally have to do by hand

"Keeps its promises without messing your system."

October 14, 2010  |  By MonKYan

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.28.0.1011

Pros

Nice interface.
Fast and easy to use.
Allows you to review whatever it is about to do before actually doing it.
Allows the fallback (in case undesired effects happen).
Does not mess your registry (as some other paid tools do).

Cons

Not sure it's a con, but the Adware and spyware removal are hidden in the registry cleaner (yet they can be selected or unselected). I would have liked having them in plain view for selection in the Privacy & Security tab.

Summary

Excellent tool for it's cost (free !!) !!

"Excellent, wonderfully fast utility"

October 13, 2010  |  By jmcd44

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.28.0.1011

Pros

Have used System Mechanic for many years. Glary Utilities is less bloated, uses far less resources and is pure pleasure to use. It is extremely fast at finding issues and repair is lighting fast. I could have saved a lot of money over System Mechanic

Cons

None yet and from what I've been able to determine , I don't expect any

"One of the best maintenance programs I've found."

October 12, 2010  |  By OlChiefMac

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.28.0.1011

Pros

I love the program, I love the one-click maintenance but I also appreciate the individual modules that allow you to work on problems individually with the option of deciding how you want to deal with issues. It also easily provides system information

Cons

For a free program I haven't found any cons.....
