Glary Utilities

CNET 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.

    "Must Have App"

    April 19, 2013  |   By viaimages

    Version: Glary Utilities 2.54.0.1759

    Pros

    I use the 1-click registry cleaner, the start-up manager, and the add-ons remover the most as my daily ritual to clean my PC.

    Cons

    The 1-click registry cleaner also has a tick box option to clean spyware. In all the years I've been using this program, I've never found any spyware to clean, so I do not know if this option is effective. I use a slew of other tools to get my computers clean from malware.

    Summary

    This is one of my "must have"/go to applications when I clean my/others PCs.

    "Works great. Price is right. Free."

    April 2, 2013  |   By autowood

    Version: Glary Utilities 2.54.0.1759

    Pros

    For a freeware program, this has enough capabilities to keep MS based PC's working smoothly and quickly.

    Cons

    When you download it, be careful not to get the paid version even if it is for free. It is a trial version that expires then requires payment to keep working. The free version meets the needs of most users.

    Summary

    I install Glary Utilities for every one who has had registry problems and even those who haven't. The only problem I've had is getting people to use this program. I like to use it weekly followed by Auslogics defrag. With free AVG, my computers run smoothly, quickly and are protected.

    "Works great but watch the registry"

    April 1, 2013  |   By direwolve

    Version: Glary Utilities 2.54.0.1759

    Pros

    Very easy to use and typical of system utilities programs.

    Cons

    After cleaning/defragmenting the registry, I was unable to create new folders in any area. Had to edit the registry to make it work again. (If this happens to you, just google "can't create new folder" and you'll get links to all the solutions you need, as it's evidently a common problem.)

    "One of the Best Utilities"

    March 31, 2013  |   By turple

    Version: Glary Utilities 2.54.0.1759

    Pros

    Simple, fast, easy to use -- and free.

    Cons

    When installing and installing upgrades, it asks to install toolbars, etc. I always decline and it's never been a problem.

    Summary

    I've been using this for years, starting with XP. I'm far from a computer expert, but I find this very simple and forgiving, by which I mean you can do things (such as erasing tracks and cookies and cleaning registry entries) in small bites, so you minimize the chance of wrecking something important. (Which I never have.)
