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.

"Better than the others"

September 01, 2013  |  By Derick Tudor

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 3.9.0.137

Pros

Very easy to use, just click on a button, and the work is done. I would recommend this utility. You don't have to be a professional to use this one.

Cons

No cons here.

"Works a Little TOO "Good""

August 30, 2013  |  By Tom_SF

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 3.9.0.137

Pros

Nice graphics. Gets rid of EVERYTHING.

Cons

"Everything" including some things like desktop icons, the desktop background and taskbar icons... you know, LITTLE things like that. I really didn't feel like spending hours experimenting what checkmark affect what part of the computer. After I ran it, I felt like I just ran a system recovery instead of a registry clean-up.

Running Revo Uninstaller will get rid of the program and its leftovers.

Summary



Updated on Aug 30, 2013

Also, System Restore will get your computer back to normal before you run a safe program like Registry Mechanic.

"Full of spam"

August 25, 2013  |  By TW_Mako

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 3.9.0.137

Pros

For what it does, it works well

Cons

Adds potentially unwanted software to your computer.

Summary

Had to uninstall it and run malware scans to remove all of the extra things that comes with "updates." A few hours of scanning after removing Glary will hopefully remove the problems.

"Program is too invasive regarding system."

August 23, 2013  |  By cTonner

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 3.9.0.137

Pros

Cleans computer well still, new version looks cool (customizable skins).

Cons

Runs unnecessary processes at startup that slow down pc and cannot be disabled. Prompts to download and install new version at startup. The program runs at startup in some way or another and cannot be disabled.

Summary

It would be very nice if glary utilities might become like the way it was before version 3 in terms of resource usage - not running any processes at start up at all.

"Good product but..."

August 22, 2013  |  By osterbergpl

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 3.9.0.137

Pros

Works well on most issues.

Cons

Duplicate file remover does not work. It scans for the files and identifies them, but does not remove. Apparently this is a known issues - I wasn't the first to complain - but I don't hold out hope that they're jumping to fix a feature on this free version. Too bad, for an otherwise good product.

Summary

It's worth it to download for everything else it does -- it just shouldn't be listed under "duplicate files remover." Because it doesn't.

"Definite Must-Have!"

August 22, 2013  |  By Imogen7Ryan

 |  Version: Glary Utilities 3.9.0.137

Pros

I always have around 3 cleaners/optimizers and this one is always one of those. It catches issues others may miss - like the others do hence it being good to use more than one. It's easy to sue, the one-click maintenance especially. Has a great Toolbox of other utilities.

Cons

I wonder how much better the Pro version is and if it is worth buying when the free version does such a good job.

Summary

Cleaners/Optimizers are essential to have and Glary Utilities runs in the top 3 for me.
