Advanced SystemCare Free is a Swiss Army Knife of a PC utility. It comes with a suite of optimization tools, including an uninstaller, one-click registry fixes, defragmenters, and more.

Pros:

Lots of tools: IOBit's everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach to Advanced SystemCare means you're bound to find something useful for your machine in its massive library of tools, tweakers, and cleaners.

One-click fix: Despite its daunting list of options, users shouldn't have trouble finding some kind of fix-all option. When in doubt, most users will probably opt for just that.

Cons:

Lackluster redesign: Claims of a Metro-friendly redesign amount to nothing more than color changes, font tweaks to a thinner sans-serif type, and icon packs. Many tools are shortcuts to separate applications that are visually inconsistent and offer questionable value over default tools.

Tedious uninstallation: Advanced SystemCare's setup is like a collection of shortcuts to other downloads. SystemCare's toolbox behaves more like a glorified stub installer for IOBit's other products than a true all-in-one program. Even after uninstalling SystemCare, you're forced to uninstall each individual app separately.

Bottom Line:

At first glance, Advanced SystemCare has everything you would think you'd ever need to keep a PC in tip-top shape: uninstallers, driver updaters, and so on. However, not all are better alternatives than their stock counterparts. For example, the Windows 8 Process Explorer is a much more usable solution.

Advanced SystemCare's user experience is a mixed bag. We didn't have any trouble opting for a one-click-fix solution for many of our computer "issues," but we took that option because of information overload.

If you have absolutely no security or tweaking tools, then it might be worth taking a look at Advanced SystemCare. The uninstallation process is tedious and inefficient, because the product treats each feature as a separate app. For defrag tools, malware protection, and even process explorers, we recommend downloading separate alternatives that offer a more focused but higher-quality approach to their respective tasks.

Developer's Description

Advanced SystemCare is an all-in-one yet easy-to-use software to clean, optimize, speed up, and protect your PC and privacy. The powerful 1-click approach helps you easily clean up junk files, leftovers, and invalid shortcuts, sweep privacy traces, remove spyware, accelerate Internet speed, update outdated programs and drivers, fix disk errors, system weaknesses, and security holes, and enable antivirus & firewall protections.

With a brand-new UI, the new version Advanced SystemCare 14 is easier to use, delivering a more intuitive interaction experience than ever. Besides, Advanced SystemCare 14 adds many new features to further optimize and secure your PC. First, the new AI Mode can intelligently clean and optimize your PC based on how you cared your PC. Second, the new Startup Optimizer greatly enlarges the startup database to ensure an overall management of all startup items for faster PC bootup. Last, the new System Protection, Browser Protection, and Private Data Protection provide you with the one-stop comprehensive protection against viruses, spyware, phishing scams, cryptocurrency mining attacks, suspicious emails, homepage & search engine modifications, annoying ads, unauthorized accesses to your sensitive data, digital fingerprint being stolen, and other online risks.

Besides these new features, Advanced SystemCare also improves almost all modules. The greatly enhanced Junk File Clean and Privacy Sweep can clean up junk files and privacy traces more deeply and thoroughly. The improved Performance Monitor helps you monitor your PC's RAM/CPU/Disk usage, CPU/GPU/Mainboard temperature, and fan speed in real time, and lets you quickly end the processes with high RAM/CPU/Disk usage to speed up your PC. The optimized Turbo Boost can intelligently stop the unnecessary startup items, apps, and services to further accelerate your PC. And the significantly enhanced Software Updater helps you update your programs to their latest versions at the earliest time. Last but not least, Advanced SystemCare also rebuilds and improves over 10 useful tools, such as Win Fix, Smart RAM, Internet Booster, Large File Finder, Disk Cleaner, Registry Cleaner, File Shredder, Undelete, FaceID, and DNS Protector to further clean and optimize your PC.

In summary, Advanced SystemCare helps you unlock the full potential of your PC and delivers you an unprecedented experience of a faster and safer PC.
