Editors' Review

Ace Utilities is an all-in-one application for maintaining computer health. It allows you to perform all the necessary tasks to ensure your machine is operating in tiptop shape.

Pros

Clarity: Ace Utilities lays everything out clearly and cleanly, so you shouldn't have a problem working with the program.

All-in-one solution: You can free up disk space by deleting junk files, manage startup programs, clear your history, and more -- all from one program. This convenience helps streamline the process of maintaining your machine.

Quick operations: All of the actions that we executed from Ace Utilities were performed quickly and effectively.

Cons

Exit option in interface: On the left-hand side of the screen, there is an "Exit" button underneath all of the other menu items. With the addition of the red "X" in the top right-hand corner, this provides a redundant feature that is too easy to click on accidentally when trying to navigate the menu.

Bottom Line

Ace Utilities is an effective utility program. If you don't already have a similar program, Ace Utilities is a very serviceable option.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Ace Utilities 5.6.1.
