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.

"Seems to help."

December 05, 2012  |  By sierrarrer

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.51.0.1666

Pros

I'm not much of a techie, but this program seems to clean my computer and speed it up. I had a different utility program on my desk top but got so many pop ups and junk messages from it, I deleted it and put Glary on it too. Now I'm happy.

Cons

Like I said, I am not a techie, so I am not really sure what this program does.

Summary

Al in all, I am happy with this product.

"The only PC utility program I use, highly recommended."

November 30, 2012  |  By ronc2

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.51.0.1666

Pros

I've been using Glary Utilities for many years, and find it to be the easiest, most efficient, user-friendly and safest program I've ever tried. I like the ease of it's "one-click" function, as well as the ease of configuring the individual tools to do exactly what I want to do without worrying about deleting or altering any important files.

Cons

My only objection (and it's a small one)is that we must download and install a new version at every update, rather than the updates being automatic and transparent, as they are with many other software offerings that are updated regularly.
