Editors' review

At first glance, this is an easy-to-use, well-designed suite of utilities to optimize your system. A deeper look shows that the mixed bag of tools is simple and geared toward the novice. PC Optimizer Pro's multitab interface logically places all functions for easy access.

PC Optimizer Pro includes the functions common to the genre: Registry cleaner, privacy eraser, and start-up manager. Select all toggles are present, but column sorting is absent. Bereft of bells and whistles, the novice-friendly functions take just a few clicks to operate. Advanced users aren't given the option to scan specific folders. The utility adds an uninspired simple file shredder and a too-basic program uninstaller. PC Optimizer Pro doesn't support browsers other than the big two, IE and Firefox.

The privacy eraser and parts of the Registry cleaner are disabled in the demo, but it still includes enough functionality for a fair test. Advanced users will want more flexibility, but novice users looking for an all-in-one package should give this app a try.

    "Be careful of reviews by techs of the company"

    May 15, 2014   |   By offerPop5829949

    Version: PC Optimizer Pro 7.0.4.6

    Pros

    Not much can be found worthy of this software online, at least nothing that isn't said by the techs of the company that makes it.

    Cons

    When you read a review click on the stats of the person. If they just joined, especially at an odd time, and have only posted one review, question if they actually aren't a shell of that company trying to hype their reviews. I think for the newest version of this software this has happened. "Awesome features?" "It completely optimized my PC" in the Cons? Really? People really need to be careful of false reviews.

    Summary

    I now have to pull this software off of a PC at work. It has completely gummed up a computer. Thankfully Windows 7 locks out some of the things that this supposed software can do to a machine, not that I am saying "Totally awesome" on Windows 7.
