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.

"Does most everything - and safely!"

February 01, 2013  |  By harster

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.52.0.1698

Pros

It cleans all sorts of data and files, quickly if used often, and keeps my PC running faster. It seems to be the safest cleaner/tuner I've tried and it has many tools. Windows has most or all of these tools, but Glary knows where to find them and presents them all in one easy to navigate place. It's the first program I would recommend for anyone to use to keep a PC running efficiently.

Cons

It may not do as good a job of DEEP cleaning as some other tools, but like I said, it seems to never cause a problem.

Summary

I've been keeping my PCs tuned up with Glary for almost seven years. I've tried some other software, but always go back to Glary and at this point I doubt I'll try any other utilities. The others require more knowledge to use (you DON"T want to do the wrong thing) or they just seem to cause problems sometimes even without requiring a decision on the user's part.

"Great if you familiar with your PC"

January 30, 2013  |  By rwbplastic

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.52.0.1698

Pros

1 fast
2 accurate
3 easy
4 best of the utilities on the market

Cons

to easy for a novice to get in trouble

Summary

I like it, every version just gets better and better - where others fail Glary Utilities works. Rated it a 4 only because it is too easy to use - people should think before delete.

"An absolutely thorough registry cleaner."

January 28, 2013  |  By Lisztman

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.52.0.1698

Pros

Very quick, catches just about everything. Price (free for basic program) is unbeatable.

Cons

None, for this user.

Summary

If I had a choice: I'd have the program (registry clean, the most necessary of the utilities) sort the "problems" by "no-brainer" such as empty data, pointer to non-existent program, etc.; and by "genuine" problem and/or question mark, for which the user might wish to do some investigation.

Having said that, this program is unbeatable.

Like others have probably said already, it does what it's supposed to do. You can't ask for more than that, and you can't beat the price with a stick!

"Glary should be on all PCs"

January 18, 2013  |  By cstack418

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 2.52.0.1698

Pros

fixes and clears up the crapola . I esp like how I can pick and choose to what degree what needs attention . This is the oldest application on my computer ,I tried others but Glary is steady and reliable

Cons

The "Ask" tool bar tries to piggy back its way in . If not for this I could advise all my illiterate friends how to install Glary via email

Summary

I'd recommend this to all newbies , I just wish it get rid of that damn tool bar
