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.

"Registry cleaner forced me to re-format BOTH of my pc's"

July 04, 2011  |  By El-Flippo

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.34.0.1190

Pros

1)File Splitter
2)Duplicate File Checker
3)Empty Folders Checker
4)Memory Optimizer (?)
5)Process Manager - gives REAL info on active running Processes

Cons

With previous versions I could close my eyes, tick everything, then cleanup/delete "unnecessary" files without reservations. NOT NOW!! I actually had to reformat TWO pc's after Glary wiped out critical registry files. Now I'm SCARED of this baby!!

Summary

I now rely upon CCleaner...and I DON'T check the Advanced Options. Glary is fine ONLY IF YOU LEAVE THEIR REGISTRY CLEANUP COMPLETELY ALONE. I don't do many reviews, but I felt obliged here...

"Registry Cleaner crashed my system"

June 27, 2011  |  By ericmstrom

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.34.0.1190

Pros

Thourough clean

Cons

Cleans too much

Summary

Glary Registry Repair found many errors with my system. I opted to "repair all" which was a huge mistake. All the icons on my desktop dissapeared. The start menu was gone as well. Somehow Glary had also messed up my XP System Restore so there was no ability to undo the changes Glary had made. In the end, my entire system had to be re-built from scratch.

"A good general purpose utility product"

June 22, 2011  |  By christmas_67

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.34.0.1190

Pros

Decent registry cleaner, disk cleaner. junk file cleaner. There are free products that do a more through job but how many utilities do you want on your computer taking up space?

Cons

The spyware checker should not be counted on as it is weak! Fix this and I would give it four stars.

Summary

Great choice if you have limited space and want a good set of utility software.

"Quick check"

June 21, 2011  |  By shypoke

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.34.0.1190

Pros

Very fast check for multiple problems.

Cons

Don't know how many viruses, trojans, etc it actually finds and corrects. Other programs that are thorough are much slower, so it makes me wonder.

Summary

Easy and fast to use.
