    "Did not work for me."

    November 3, 2014  |   By Mikey8929

    Version: Glary Utilities 5.11.0.23

    Pros

    I can find nothing good.

    Cons

    Says there are registry errors when there are not. Says programs need updating when they do not. I will not trust any program that installs other programs without permission. And this is what happened.

    "Okayish. Remo More & CCleaner are much better."

    August 19, 2014  |   By Frubello82

    Version: Glary Utilities 5.6.0.13

    Pros

    Lots of tweaks available. Some of them are only available for the paid users though. User interface is clean and response time is pretty slick.

    Cons

    Feels incomplete even though there are dozens of functions!

    Summary

    Used to be better. They really need to step up their game. There are new players like Advanced System Care, CCleaner, Remo More etc, Tune-Up utilities and many others.

    "Glary is blocked by Chrome"

    July 9, 2014  |   By tdisme

    Version: Glary Utilities 5.3.0.8

    Pros

    IDK .... (6:30 am)

    Cons

    Chrome just blocked a download as malicious. The same download couldnt be saved to the intended site due to permissions.

    Permissions problems, for me, seem to be pervasive, returning constantly no matter what I do (Computer Kudzu?)

    Summary

    I am sick to death with fixing stuff on the computer and will probably dump the program for that reason. It should get by Chrome without a malicious rating.
    As for the permissions problem.....aaarrrggghhhh!!!!!

    "May work, but problems with subscription cutting short."

    June 15, 2014  |   By gentleben

    Version: Glary Utilities 5.1.0.4

    Pros

    I've been using Glary Utilities for a long time. It appears to do the jobs it purports.

    Cons

    I have purchased the Pro one year subscription twice, once on one computer, and once much later on another computer. In both cases, the Pro status disappeared long before the year was up and the program started bugging me to pay for it again. As of the writing of this review, I have forwarded me purchase receipt to Glarysoft to investigate. My purchase was 9 months ago and the subscription seemed to have lost itself approximately the time of upgrade to version 5.

    Summary

    The subscription issue is a deal breaker.

    "Good program, but not dependable."

    June 13, 2014  |   By Jim Brunner

    Version: Glary Utilities 5.1.0.4

    Pros

    I like everything about this program. Does it everything great with one exception. I installed Glary because my former "download informer" was Download Now, and I was having the issue of their downloads, showing up randomly several days after I updated the programs called out. In other words, rather than helping simplify my job, it made it more difficult.

    Cons

    Your program is really not dependable to the point of utter frustration. I have a program called "Should I remove it?", which I have been using for a long time. It is invaluable. Glary Utilities keeps showing this program as needing an update no matter how many times I update it. I am about to get rid of Glary for the same thing.

    Summary

    There MUST be a reputable, efficient and accurate program updater out there.... but it doesn't look like Glary is the one. But, then either is Download Now.!!! I KNOW this won't get printed....but just in case you REALLY want to do a good job, more than you want to hide the mickeymouse job you are now doing......there still may be a chance.

    "Paid versions have nothing on Glary!"

    May 22, 2014  |   By contentwithgod

    Version: Glary Utilities 5.0.0.1

    Pros

    NO spam, no hassles & delivers beyond what it says! I've used Glary DAILY for 4+ years & don't know what I ever did without it.

    Cons

    I can't believe this is the only complaint I can muster, but perhaps they do version updates a little too frequent.

    Summary

    Indeed, it's not a substitution for an Antivirus Program (& not intended to be).. but Antivirus Programs are also no substitution for what Glary accomplishes. I had Kaspersky Antivirus, then Norton.. which I have now & Norton does a good job of blocking malicious attacks. But even with the Antivirus programs, I start noticing slower pc performance almost daily & a quick 1-Click Glary Scan will find hundreds or more, damaged files, fragmented, registry files dragging speed down.. & remove them.. and WHAM, it's back to normal performance! Even with the best antivirus programs out there, you need GLARY!

    Easy to use, works rather quickly. I have a new PC with Windows8.1. I was afraid that there would be issues, but I haven't found any yet. So far, so good!
