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.

    March 29, 2013  |   By solo247

    Version: Wise Care 365 Free 2.26.182

    Pros

    simple to install, simple to operate and light on memory usage too. As a free-ware, it does a great job of cleaning the HDD and the whole computer system, plus alot more.

    Cons

    advance features are locked unless you pay the extra money, although it's a small fee.

    Summary

    a great useful app that offers many tools to clean and optimize your hard-drive and RAM.

    It does everything it says it will do.

    "a real must have"

    March 27, 2013  |   By artistdenise

    Version: Wise Care 365 Free 2.26.182

    Pros

    very through cleaning and defrag for both machine and registry-yep, registry cleaning and defragging...pinch me-and its quick too

    Cons

    really there's a problem-wise utilities. look at them if you must but do not use them-ever!!! what's that? oh, you want your machine to lock up with new problems in critical areas? excuse me! then the utilities are made just for you. as for me, not with a gun to my head...

    Summary

    it would be perfect if wise dropped the utilities and sped the registry cleaner up a bit. still what does work works very very well. I is truly a must have.

    "Seems to be good"

    March 26, 2013  |   By Jo Rhyan

    Version: Wise Care 365 Free 2.26.182

    Pros

    I am leery about giving this program a really good rating as doing so in the past, I have had to come back so many times to change my opinion. I have only had it for about 2wks, but it seems to do a really good job and pc performance seems to be good after use. I really like the system optimize function which optimizes your memory and system startup (system startup doubled/and memory space doubled).

    Cons

    I'm not real crazy about the standard system cleaner (could just be me), because there is stuff that gets erased that I want to keep. Such as login cookies an such to certain sites like cnet (I haven't found the filter function/white list(as I said could just be me).

    Summary

    Seems like a really good program with many different tools. Aside from malware, spyware, and virus removal (not its function), it's a pretty good one stop shop system security tool.

    "The speed-up app. that's been missing from Windows!"

    March 26, 2013  |   By jchurst

    Version: Wise Care 365 Free 2.26.182

    Pros

    The 'Free' version consists of a comprehensive user-friendly interface containing an abundance of clean-up and maintenance tools in one window including:

    -PC Checkup
    -System Cleaner - includes Registry Cleaner, Common Cleaner, Advanced Cleaner, System Slimming
    -System Tuneup - includes System Optimizer, Disk Defrag, Registry Defrag, Startup Manager, Context Menu(PRO)
    -Privacy Protector - includes Privacy Eraser(PRO - reveals path), Disk Eraser, File Shredder, Password Generator

    The 'Privacy Eraser' feature is available with the 'PRO' version, but the 'Free' version reveals a full path to any privacy issues it detects... as opposed to informing you of the number of
    detected risks and requiring a purchase to fix them.

    Cons

    I've used Wise Care 365 on Windows XP SP3, Vista 32/64-bit and Windows 7 32/64-bit without any issues.
