    Summary

    This program rules and helped clean up tons of wasted space on my computer. For a more detailed description of what it can do and some pics of the user interface check out this post:

    "Glary Utilities is one of my favorite tools for years"

    November 4, 2011  |   By 1garyg1

    Version: Glary Utilities 2.39.0.1310

    Pros

    You can use any OR all of the modules, it's your choice. It not only strightens out the crap from your registry but can do much more. It has a add/removal tool from unwanted programs that is lightening speed compared to the Windows version.
    By the way, this download doed NOT force you to add the ASK toolbar. You just choose NO to the option and it still downloads the program.

    Cons

    This is not a CON of Glary Utilities, it's one of CNET's. Watch out for all the other ad's on the download screen for the program. You may just click on the wrong link since the wrong ones look more outstanding than the one you want. Look for the GREEN download button located to the left for the Glary Utilities download. Other than this CNET and Glary are wonderful.

    Summary

    One more item, if you use Glarysoft Registry utility you will not need it anymore because Glary Utilities incorporates that individual module into this complete program.

    And yes, you can choose to run just that one or any combination of modules that are included, ALL FOR FREE !!!

    "Pretty good utility program"

    November 3, 2011  |   By steen_cloud

    Version: Glary Utilities 2.39.0.1310

    Pros

    Free
    Lots of useful utilities
    Has options to give you control of the modules (instead of just following the "recommended" settings w/o any option to change them like certain other programs)

    Cons

    None. There is, however, that toolbar installation (like a handful of other programs), but it's OPTIONAL, so it's not really a Con.

    "Love Glary, I have it on my 4 computers & recommend it."

    November 3, 2011  |   By PokJimbo

    Version: Glary Utilities 2.39.0.1310

    Pros

    [it forces you to add an "ask.com" toolbar]
    Not true! The first screen is the EULA for Glary. The second screen asks if you want to agree to the EULA for the Ask Toolbar. I avoid all toolbars, they take away from your work area. So, YES to the 1st, NO to the 2nd. Just clear the checkmark.

    Cons

    The one-click is great and safe. The other options are powerful to the extent a newbie could get in trouble. Not really a "Con".

    "A good free utility but beware of annoying pushware"

    November 2, 2011  |   By spreidy856

    Version: Glary Utilities 2.39.0.1310

    Pros

    This is a good utility program that I have used as an adjunct for file & registry maintenance( esp. for reg defrag).

    Cons

    Aside from the annoying reminder to purchase the paid version, which is neccessary for businesses-not home use. My main beef with this program is that it forces you to add an "ask.com" toolbar in order to complete the installation-no option given!! In order to complete the installation you must of course check the EUA that also includes the Ask.com toolbar. I have not use for that and must go back in another program to uninstall it BAD form Glary Utilities! Please change that and allow us the option to install the toolbar or not. Nothing against those who might find the toolbar useful, but don't hoist it on the rest of us!

    Summary

    Overall, this is a good, useful program-especially the free version. It does what it says and does it quickly & efficiently. I just wish Glary Utilities didn't force added- and in my opinion-and unnecessary software(i.e. a toolbar).
