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.

    "Awesome program, really sped up both of my laptops!"

    May 6, 2013  |   By dccomic

    Version: Wise Care 365 Free 2.43.191

    Pros

    My laptops run at least 2-3 times faster than before. It is easy to use and set up and can be set to automate much of the process of cleaning my computer. I tried it after using several other programs and it worked great compared to the others. The last program I used was Advanced System Care (I bought it too) which I liked a lot and truthfully was really even easier to use than WC365 but it didn't speed up my computers like WC365 has. I would highly recommend this program. I don't know how much longer it will continue to be free but as long as it doesn't cost a fortune like some, I will probably purchase it.

    Cons

    I took a little time to learn all the controls and some of the extra's that you have to look for (it is all automated in ASC) but it was well worth the small effort due to the great results.

    Summary

    You can't go wrong with this program and I will recommend it to everyone I know.

    "just fine on my laptop"

    May 5, 2013  |   By MichaelHere

    Version: Wise Care 365 Free 2.43.191

    Pros

    The registry cleaner embedded is awesome! Null keys there can be deleted clean enough.
    I use this tool mostly for my registry, and it's not beyond expectation.

    Cons

    It's heard that the disk eraser really can clean data. But it's only available for Pro users.
    Considering about the upgrade.
    That's also why one star is lacked.

    "Excellent Application. Recommended"

    May 5, 2013  |   By mb300e

    Version: Wise Care 365 Free 2.43.191

    Pros

    I used to use the separate Wise Disc Cleaner and the Wise Registry Cleaner, now I find 365 does everything that they did and it comes with some extras.

    Cons

    I have thought about paying for the upgrade, but I messaged Wise about the fees i.e. a one time or annual and so on, but have not had a reply so I am staying with the free release for now.

    Also I still use some other apps like CCleaner, as I have not yet found a cleanup app that gets everything. Using them is part of my daily housekeeping routine. So it is not a big deal to run two or three maintenance apps every day or so, it becomes habit and only takes a few minutes.

    Summary

    The free 365 should be in everyone's PC toolbox.

    "Beware for positive reviews"

    April 30, 2013  |   By ajtc68

    Version: Wise Care 365 Free 2.43.191

    Pros

    Free? No pros!

    Cons

    Have not tried it and tried to find the 1 star reviews. If you check the names of the users giving 4 and 5 stars, you will notice they only have reviewed this program.
    Others who have downloaded and installed the program has experienced serious problems including crash of computer and malware.

    Summary

    I have decided NOT to try this program - it seems not legit but scam.

    All positive reviews come on close to daily basis with the intention to move the program up and make it look reputable.

    If you MUST download this program, do it on a secure machine and test the program BEFORE using it on your everyday computer.

    Updated on May 24, 2013

    Update:
    mb300e - About knowing it is not good, just read the reviews from people who have used it and are not paid to advertise this product.

    And yes, I do recognize a scam - and this seem to be scam. Scam is, e.g., when somebody tries to convince you to install a program with the purpose of installing back-doors, bots and ask for payment for "upgrades".
    **
    G_Cooper: No, I am not paid to review and rate apps. On that day I happened to start writing about my experience with various programs. As looking for a program to clean a HDD I noticed this program and decided to take a look at it. I was not convinced about the positive reviews and read the negative which identifies clearly what type of program this is.
