Wise Care 365 Free

CNET Editors' review

Free system care and cleaning utilities aren't uncommon these days, so there are plenty of choices. WiseCleaner's Wise Care 365 Free offers a PC Checkup, System Tune-up, Privacy Protector, and Wise Utilities. You can schedule cleaning and optimizing sessions and back up and restore your settings. Wise Care 365 Free's job is to prevent unpleasant surprises by keeping your system clean and tight. Recent updates include improvements to the Startup Manager and full Windows 8 compatibility.

Wise Care 365's four-step tutorial starts with picking a background theme and language and then walks new users through a quick overview of the PC Checkup feature, the program's Privacy Protection capabilities, and the General Settings. The user interface opened with a balloon offering a new seasonal theme.

System cleaners and optimizers almost always start with a scan, and Wise Care 365's PC Checkup did, too. The scan identified junk files we could delete and also warned of privacy risks that we'd have to upgrade to the pro version to fix. The System Cleaner feature includes a Registry Cleaner, System Cleaner, and other tools. The registry scan finished quickly, and identified and cleaned up a variety of loose ends. The Common Cleaner scours Windows for files you can delete, while the Advanced Cleaner lets you target areas to clean. Scans were quick but thorough, with good results. The System Slimmer identifies things you can safely delete to regain more disk space, such as the sample multimedia files in Windows. Under Settings, we could schedule cleaning times, add files to the Exclusion List, specify automatic backups (recommended!) and even create a portable version of Wise Care 365 to carry on a thumbdrive. The online Help file seems to cover just about everything, including plenty of screenshots illustrating the various features.

New PCs often ship full of useless stuff, so running Wise Care 365 can reduce startup time and improve even a new PC's performance. Older PCs will benefit from a proper cleaning and tune-up. All PCs need regular cleaning and maintenance, and Wise Care 365 can provide it.

    "for fills most utility needs but user be aware"

    February 18, 2013  |   By davep1042

    Version: Wise Care 365 Free 2.21.173

    Pros

    along came 365 which has more things to play with although don't
    alter the start up manager or you may end up with a svchost.exe message this being one of many microsofts windows add on's,added when sp3 came out. the problem is manufactured when you try to speed up your windows start up time, in start up manager deleting some of the programs can bring up a message (svchost.exe can not being installed) this appears as windows start up completes. if you try to find it with widows task manager you will see loads of svchost.exe but you can not find out which one you turned off, so back to start up manager in wise 365 and try to find which one or two programs windows needs at start up. i switch all but recommended by wise 365 then switch off one at a time long winded i know but 354 do'es not know what windows needs on your computer but if you can get your windows start up time down to 40-60 seconds by switching 0ne program at a time with out getting svchost.exe be satisfied

    Cons

    watch out for the start up manager it can give you svchost.exe messages not easily fixed wise 365 does not know what windows of your computer needs at start up but there will be many svchost.exe in task manager (ctrl,alt,delete)these appear when you have deleted a or more programs to speed up your windows start up time be satisfied with 40-60 seconds before you start tampering with startup manager only switch of one program at a time then restart computer if svchost comes up you'll know the program that that is the program windows needs at start up

    Summary

    have fun but be aware of startup manager. if you need pro be sure of the reasons you need it the offer is your, me pro gets to complicated for an olden

    "Use with caution !"

    February 15, 2013  |   By smilzeee

    Version: Wise Care 365 Free 2.21.173

    Pros

    Doesn't allow you to leave any option unchecked...if you try to leave one box unchecked (which I tried to do)you will not be able to continue loading !

    Cons

    I tried to uninstall it after I did not agree with the way it ran, I found it had not fully uninstalled'leaving behind the system booster.To remove the booster from my system was a pain in the real arse !

    Summary

    I was given a choice of three options when trying to install (one of the options of which I was unsure of) I then found I was unable to install unless all three boxes were checked...why bother offering three options if you need to tick all three options before your able to install ??? Use with caution' unless you can find a way to leave one option unchecked

    "For me the best Windows free care tool(s), BY FAR, BUT!"

    February 12, 2013  |   By tegelstom

    Version: Wise Care 365 Free 2.21.173

    Pros

    Pros: ?????

    Cons

    Cons: ?????

    Summary

    Actually I use Iobit's ASC(payed)tool(s) about a year at home, and the free portable version of Wise Care tool(s) about two months on Windows(of course, what else?) 7. Both are also used for free about two months on Windows(...) Server 2003 R2, in my job(CS/IT education). The free Wise Care works perfect, actually it shows me that is doing some work, after a full scan of ASC(payed)! Insane, but that's the beauty of Windows!(LOL) Talking about free versions, on Windows Server 2003 R2, ASC(free version) is ALMOST a total fail, CAUTION: never try to use ASC(free version) options: [boost internet] and [system opt] on a machine connected to a LAN, you gonna regret it or I dare you to test it. :D. Now about the free version of Wise Care, almost ROCKZ, ok, they do have some restrictions but signifigant less than the ASC, they do not cause any problem at all in a machine connected to LAN, but you have to use Wisely( ;) ), the Wise Tools Registry Cleaner, it YELLS to you(not only for the registry thing) that is unsure for what to do for an issue, by leaving its box unchecked(I never tried to see what happens when you check that box...). Here comes the big BUT about Wise Tools Defrag Utility! Simply do not try to defrag with it, too slow and I'm not sure if really defrags(another user's feedback here, is so very selcome) but you can use for free IObit's smart defrag tool(for me is the best free defrag utility). Conclusion:
    -----------
    If want to go for free... just use the Wise Care 365 for all the cleaning jobs(Wisely ;)) and do defrag with IObit's smart defragment tool and if you install the anvast! antimalware tool, your Windows system gonna be rated 7/10(0)??? LOL!

    UNIX & Linux user here!

    posible question:
    -----------------
    why in heck do you mess with these Windows messy things?

    my answer:
    ----------
    I will never forget that I started messing with CS/IT using that MS-DOS 3.2, it was ages ago, but yeap... still loving you Microsoft! Plus that messing with Windows stuff is the best practice for "out of box thinking". :))))
    Btw, all my comments about Microsoft are not mean/sarcastic etc. you can consider them as teasing feedback!

    cheers!
