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.

"Very good at doing what it says it will."

September 06, 2012  |  By Gemmo

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.48.0.1568

Pros

Easy to use and useful for many tasks. Load it, let it run through its paces, clean up the system then use it as necessary.

Cons

When searching for duplicate files, column widths never stay as I set them but spring back to a default width. A minor problem really.

Summary

Excellent free app that should be useful to many.

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.48.0.1568

Pros

Easy to use.

Don't believe that the register cleaner gets all the problems.
Could do more to optimize the computer such as register defrag.
