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.
