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 quick way to maintain your system."

May 29, 2011  |  By bobeld

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.33.0.1158

Pros

All in one system maintenance.
Relatively quick.

Cons

Watch the privacy settings in "tracks eraser" - you may find that auto log-ins to familiar sites have been erased. (Hope you've stored your usernames)

Summary

Pretty good for maintenance. I use this along with another system maintenance product. I no longer use the tracks eraser feature as I do not want to keep logging in to some sites for which I had auto log-in.

"Bloatware, Beware"

May 22, 2011  |  By robertbb99

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.33.0.1158

Pros

none, I stopped installation after reading the EULA.

Cons

installs programs and a toolbar. Many other programs contain unwanted toolbars and programs but you have a choice uf unchecking a box and not installing them. Glary does not give you a choice. I only reason I discovered this was by reading the EULA.

Summary

If you dont mind a toolbar and a couple of programs then install it. I am sure the program and toolbar is harmless but I want to have control of what is on my browser.

"I have never experienced ONE problem with this utility!"

May 11, 2011

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.33.0.1158

Pros

Works everytime, has plenty of preferences, does EXACTLY what it says it's going to do better and more efficiently that Windows own built in "diagnostics". Doesn't assume you're an idiot to use it like GatesWare.

Cons

None... not a one.

Summary

Use this-- get it-- I recommend it to everyone who has slow, clutzy machines. It cleans them right up!
