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.

"It used to be good!"

May 05, 2012  |  By allfoursnready

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.44.0.1450

Pros

Did everything it claimed to do and very well.

Cons

It started to bundle AVG security toolbar and secure search with its install. Regardless in some cased even saying no to AVG add on, it would still install, as in my case.
Once it is installed, it takes over all search and the only way for me to get rid of it was to back up bookmarks, uninstall and reinstall Firefox.

Summary

No is the summary for this program. It's too bad that they messed up a good thing.

Pros

free and does what it says

Cons

Steals all of the browser's homepages and redirected them to their search site with out any warning so I won't use it but when it has been uninstalled, It will not undo the damage. Pretty disgusting!

Summary

Use it if you want to use their search URL.

"Great Utility Software"

May 02, 2012  |  By seacaptaindonald

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.44.0.1450

Pros

I started using this software about 3 years ago and have installed it on every computer that I own. It works well to fix many registry problems and does a good job of cleaning/freeing up memory. It has made most of my computers run faster and with fewer problems over all. I have and do recommend it to everyone I know having computer problems.

Cons

I have no negative experience with this software.

Summary

Great product. Also recommend all of the other software from this company.

"Heads-up! It will hijack your search engine!"

April 30, 2012  |  By mauiman01

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.44.0.1450

Pros

I thought it was an excellent must have software until the last update hijacked my search engine

Cons

It has a sophisticated hijack program, which will rehijack when you reset your previous search engine. This behavior is unacceptable!
