    Version: Smart Defrag 3 3.1.0.319

    Pros

    I think the software is easy to use and understand. I put it on a mans computer who was 84 year old and he even found it easy to use.

    Cons

    I also think it is fast for what is does.

    Summary

    The reason I say that is yes there are faster defragers out there but do they do the job they should.

    "Versions 3.x include generally unwanted programs"

    April 10, 2014  |   By dwcumbes

    Version: Smart Defrag 3 3.1.0.319

    Pros

    The degfrgmentation and optimization features seem as good as the old versions.

    Cons

    Version 3.x includes potentially unwanted programs. Adware, spyware, browser hijack, toolbars, search programs, coupon programs. Iobit's response to these reviews on CNET has been "be careful when you install the program to avoid the other programs and you can always uninstall the toolbar and change your default search provider." First, that is a tacit admission that SmartDefrag does include or at least offer to install potentially unwanted programs that many users will not realize will also be installed. Second, I found the removal process to take much longer than indicated and to require spyware removal tools.

    Summary

    Not recommended. My advice is to give up on iobit smartdefrag. I have used many previous versions with satisfaction, but it took me hours to figure out why I could not get online with either of my browsers. Finally, Malwarebytes detected Spigot and Couponhelper -- both of which I finally discovered were installed with SmartDefrag. This also chnaged my search setting and installed a toolbar. I didn't see the choice to opt out, but on a newer version, I do see a possible way to opt out. Still, I am installing. Trust destroyed.

    "(RH/RS) Prosjecan program s jednom velikom greskom"

    March 29, 2014  |   By vlado8008

    Version: Smart Defrag 3 3.1.0.319

    Pros

    Program je jednostavan za koristenje, ima opciju i da sam vrsi defragmantaciju diska dok je racunalo manje zauzeto. Nudi i opciju "boot defrag", o njoj vise kasnije. U principu jedan prosjecan program s nicim posebnim, ima i boljih u ovoj kategoriji.

    Cons

    Pa ovako najveca mana mu je upravo "boot defrag" opcija. Gdje on prije ucitavanja Windowsa vrsi popravak. TU OPCIJU OBAVEZNO ISKLJUCITE! Meni je upravo tom opcijom pobrkao drajvere i jos neke stvari i pri paljenju mi se javljao "bluescreen". Sva sreca imao sam backup.
    Druge mane su mu nedostatak opcija kao kod slicnih programa i to sto posao ne obavi kako treba do kraja.

    Summary

    Program nije los, i ako vam se neda trazit bolju alternativu ovaj program je sasvim OK za vas, samo opcija "boot defrag" obavezno iskljucena!
