Editors' Review

+

Using the Swiss knife approach, this suite of tools makes a valiant effort to keep your PC healthy, but its not without a few headaches.

PC Health Optimizer's button menu and submenu interface is nothing new, and actually wastes time and space. The 21 functions easily could fit on a single menu interface. The same approach makes reading the manual tedious. A single paragraph of needed information takes three clicks to reach in a sub-submenu. The general impression of this suite is delayed speed. Once you finally get to a function, they operate quickly. Some too quickly, as our testers complained that some information screens opened for less than a second, then returned to the main interface. All of the standard functions of this genre are included, but some functions straddle the line between useful and irritating. Removing junk files and unneeded Registry entries take users just a couple of clicks to accomplish. However, expected controls such as select or deselect all buttons and window resize controls to see full path and entry information are missing. The suite's privacy, administration, file utility, and backup functions follow the same path of program speed combined with interface irritants.

It takes little user experience to operate PC Health Optimizer. However, some functions require at least an intermediate understanding of the Windows Registry. The 15-day demo requires that users click through a purchase reminder before using any function. That, combined with the other annoyances of this program, may send busy users searching for a less-segmented approach to PC maintenance.

    "Kept getting bad know file message with SystemSuite"

    September 04, 2009   |   By Manhater33p

    Version: PC Health Optimizer Free Edition 1.0.1

    Pros

    Has a nice layout from screenshots and looks safe but not sure if it safe.

    Cons

    System suite kept bringing it up as a bad known file so not sure if I want to download this or not or even run it. I would use caution. I'm not taking any chances though so good luck to those who do use it.

    "program sucks"

    August 11, 2009   |   By plocke37

    Version: PC Health Optimizer Free Edition 1.0.1

    Pros

    none at all

    Cons

    when i downloaded this program there was not a single mention about any price to pay to actually use this. so i figured it was another con and i removed it from my computer, now i have to fix my start programs list that it doubled up on me.

    Summary

    don't know what else it screwed up but i highly recommend staying away because the article dose not tell you everything.
