Editors' review

Computers, like most other machines, require regular maintenance to keep them running smoothly. PC Brother System Maintenance Free is a comprehensive suite of utilities that can help your system stay in top condition. Even if you're not particularly technically savvy, this program has plenty of tools you can use to improve your computer's performance.

The program's interface is attractive and easy to navigate. Four tabs--Optimize, Security, Tools, and PC Info--contain the program's main features. The Optimize tab includes tasks for performance, appearance, network, and security; you can select which of these you want to include and then click the Optimize button to have the tasks performed automatically. We liked it that the program gives you the option of backing up your system settings in case something goes awry during the optimization process. The Security tab lists antivirus software, firewalls, system updates, and shared resources, with suggested actions shown if there's room for improvement. The Tools tab lists autorun items, currently running processes and connections, and system services. Finally, the PC Info tab lists system, performance, hardware, and storage information. PC Brother System Maintenance Free is an excellent way to get a quick snapshot of what's happening on your computer and take corrective action if needed. We do wish that the program came with a Help file; although it's easy enough for anyone to use, many people would likely appreciate more information about some of the program's features. Overall, though, we liked how easy and effective PC Brother System Maintenance Free was, and we recommend it.

PC Brother System Maintenance Free installs and uninstalls without issues.

    "HAD TO ABORT"

    December 18, 2011   |   By TheGent2U

    Version: PC Brother System Maintenance Free 1.0.1.25

    Pros

    NONE - my security software (ESET) blocked it.

    Cons

    My security software (ESET) blocked it.

    Summary

    It is apparently not compatible with ESET. Oh, well...

    "Sneaky browser hijack and resource leech."

    October 15, 2011   |   By tryerofoddware

    Version: PC Brother System Maintenance Free 1.0.1.25

    Pros

    So-so graphics.

    Cons

    It stealthily installs a useless search engine, HIJACKS your browser(s) and makes MSN your homepage. This browser hijack causes problems with other existing programs on your machine, resulting in many extra clock cycles to complete a task already in cache. When I removed the SneakWare, the problem went away. The software itself is largely useless. PC Brother stinks like my old socks.

    Summary

    Download for the sake of understanding trashy, sneaky, useless junk. PC Brother is a bad idea gone wrong. A BIG Thumbs Down.

    Pros

    I did not have to know how it works just that it does with just a click of the mouse. Best of all I could see the improvements it made on my system

    Cons

    That all of the PC Brothers programs are not combined

    Summary

    I like how simple and efficient it is to use
