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.

"Free Version Works Great On Windows XP"

April 08, 2012  |  By moviegeek65

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.43.0.1419

Pros

Cleans and defrags registry, Fast

Cons

Free version doesn't do much on Windows 7.

Summary

I have used the free version for many years on my XP PC's and it worked great, I recently bought a Windows 7 PC and installed Glary Utility but it made things worse. Maybe the paid version works better on Windows 7 but I can only recommend Glary Utility on XP PC's.

Cons

None found at this time

Summary

I recommend Glary Utilities for any user the advanced to the new. It is easy to use and understand as well as a small yet powerful program that helps keep your system under control.

"Gone to the dark side"

March 28, 2012  |  By Dajoca100

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.43.0.1419

Pros

Still a great product. However...

Cons

Has joined the list of software that insists on adding it's own crap to your PC. In Glary's case it changes the home page and search pages of your browser to it's own.

Summary

Unacceptable changes to my computer mean that I will look elsewhere from now on.

CNet seem to be hosting more and more programs that sneakily change settings on your PC.

Updated on Mar 28, 2012

I went through a re-install to see if I had missed the browser and search options and I had.
The install has added a new opt out Not to change your browser. It is annoying that it is on by default, but whilst it isn't glaringly obvious, it isn't quite as devious as I first thought.
Just be aware of it and uncheck it.
