Editors' review

Just as our houses require regular cleaning to get rid of the messes of daily living, so, too, do computers require cleaning to get rid of the messes of downloading, installing, uninstalling, and Internet surfing. System Boost Elite is a full-featured program that can tidy up your Registry, junk files, and more. Unfortunately, the free version can only fix three problems at a time, which could be a drawback if you haven't been staying on top of your housekeeping.

The program's interface is attractive and easy to navigate, with check boxes that let users select Registry Clean, Privacy Sweep, Junk Files Removal, and System Optimization. You can select exactly which kinds of issues you want the program to scan for within each of these four categories. We decided to do the full scan, and once we clicked the Scan button the program quickly found hundreds of problems. It then gave us the option to cure them, and when we agreed it corrected three of the broken Registry items. You can run the program again and again, correcting three problems at a time, but this obviously isn't an efficient way to clean up your computer if you have a lot of things that need to be fixed. The program's online Help page provides some basic information about what the Windows Registry is and how the program works, but as with any program that changes your computer's Registry, you'll want to proceed with caution. Overall, we found System Boost Elite to be a useful program, but the limitations on the free version could be a problem for some.

System Boost Elite installs and uninstalls without issues.

    "Serious problems w/operation; actual repair unknown"

    February 23, 2013   |   By edisenberg-2009

    Version: System Boost Elite 2.8.5.8

    Pros

    Interface is easy to use & software apparently works well

    Cons

    (1) BEFORE DOING ANYTHING change Settings to NOT do Privacy Sweep. If you fix the privacy "errors" you will lose lots of important info including all your browser cookies.

    (2) DON'T TRUST RESTORE! I accidentally "fixed" my "privacy errors" and when I tried to go back to a backup and then re-scan for errors the privacy errors remained fixed.

    (3) You must upgrade to paid version in order to fix more than 3 problems, which is always going to be the case.

    Summary

    Assuming it actually works as well as others claim this can be very useful software. However, the problems I've listed are so serious I can't give it more than an "Okay" score of 3.

    Updated on Feb 23, 2013

    Tools | Disk Checker isn't their utility, but just opens a DOS window and runs CHKDSK. The "F" parameter that allows you to fix errors isn't supported this way, so it is both something you already own and useless. Some of the others are also built into Windows.

    "Excellent as editor states!"

    January 06, 2013   |   By Rioismycat

    Version: System Boost Elite 2.8.4.8

    Pros

    Works well!, no problems with this software!, but be careful when cleaning shortcuts if you want to save your icons!

    Cons

    What people might not realize is that cleaners don't get rid of all files, including invalid entries,temp. files etc., certain files deny access and can't be deleted unless you know how to do it manually!, a file shredder works well with certain files and there are other programs also!

    Summary

    Serves it's purpose!

    "Copy of SystemCare"

    July 09, 2012   |   By Ratterify

    Version: System Boost Elite 2.8.0.8

    Pros

    There aren't any.

    Cons

    Doesn't make a difference to your computer.

    Summary

    Pretty much a copy of Advanced SystemCare.. does the same as the other product and doesn't work that well. you'll still end in a result of a slow computer.

    One much bettter piece of software out there as ads put it. Besides, there are some changes that suit my computing needs at any given time.

    Oops, sorry guys this is not totally freeware. However it still works for me.

    Summary

    As in dealing with slow-responding computers, you could not be disappointed.

    "Is this a program? Fishy files and reviews."

    December 26, 2011   |   By Maklarreatz

    Version: System Boost Elite 2.7.6.8

    Pros

    Um... well...

    Cons

    Look at the reviews. See a trend? All a little similar? This software is some sort of scam.

    Summary

    Well, here's the whole story- I needed a piece of software comparable to IObit's Advanced System Care to test on an NT 4.0 workstation that is too slow to recover data from. I can't even install ASC on it to fix the problems, so I came here seeking a solution. I downloaded it to my Windows 7 computer, and it immediately hijacked my Firefox homepage. Because software should never be this friendly, I deleted it. I did not install it. I do not recommend this program. Perhaps I'm wrong- perhaps it is the best program ever, but I'm not taking any chances, especially on systems that are old and vulnerable. Beware though, the reviews for this thing are suspect, to say the least...
