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.

"Works Great!"

July 22, 2012  |  By JAH201379

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.47.0.1539

Pros

Easy download

Cons

There are no cons

Summary

Okay, I'm not a computer tech or anything but I do know something about taking care of my computers. I currently have 3 computers 2 laptops and 1 desk top with 2 running windows 7. I have Glary on all of my computers to help fix any anomalies that happen to appear on my systems. Since I have installed Glary Utilities my system has not crashed or encountered any issues whats so ever. I do weekly scans of the systems and updates. I especially love the optimize and Improvement tab. Its helps me stay on top of my registry to make sure that I have the necessary registries. This Software has been a god send.

"A great alternative to ASC"

July 21, 2012  |  By IslandBoy_77

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.47.0.1539

Pros

Simple operation, yet plenty of more in-depth tools if one wants. Is able to over-install itself with major updates. Is a good, reliable "jack of all trades" maintenance program. Not intrusive or Norton-esque in it's operation or installation like IObit's product (which I used to use up until Jan this year, then gave up in disgust on)

Cons

Comes with a toolbar so one MUST do a custom install, being sure to uncheck all the extra bits and pieces. Does occasionally delete something in the registry that it ought not, but seems to only cause a problem when there is actually already a problem there, but one simply isn't aware of it.

Summary

For those who've had enough of the "all your base are ours" approach from IObit's ASC, Glary Utilities is a welcome breath of fresh air. I doubt there will ever be the perfect "one stop shop" maintenance program, but GU is certainly a very good example of this type of utility. I won't be going back to ASC - my "base is mine". :)
