Editors' Review

by   / October 16, 2011

Glary Utilities is one of the most consistently recommended freeware system maintenance suites, and our experience with it suggests such confidence isn't misplaced. It combines a Registry Cleaner, Shortcuts Fixer, Startup Manager, Temporary Files Cleaner, Tracks Eraser, Spyware Remover, and much more in one compact interface. Glary Utilities Portable is a full-featured portable freeware version of Glary Utilities. It can run for portable drives on any compatible Windows PC, making it a great addition to portable PC toolkits.

We extracted Glary Utilities Portable and clicked the executable file, which ran the program without requiring an installation process. A simple interface offers four tabs: Status, showing version and license information; 1-Click Maintenance, with selectable tools; Modules, which accesses a wide range of tools individually; and Menu, which opened an Explorer menu accessing the Restore Center, Help, Settings, Skins, and more. The 1-Click Maintenance tool let us select which cleaners to include in the process. The Modules tab offered multiple tools under sections labeled Clean Up & Repair, Optimize & Improve, Privacy & Security, Files & Folders, and System Tools, which accesses not only a Process Manager, IE Assistant, and System Information tool but also many useful built-in Windows Standard Tools such as CheckDisk, System File Checker, System Restore, and Backup. The Settings included a long list of commands we could add to right-click menus in Windows Explorer, an Ignore List, and other options.

We ran a scan, which identified the number of problems found in each tool. Clicking Show Details opened pop-ups with detailed information about each entry plus the option to deselect it for cleaning. When we were satisfied, we clicked Repair Problems. When the cleaning finished, we could press Scan for Issues to check for additional errors. Like the installed version, Glary Utilities Portable cleaned and spiffed up our system while doing it no wrong. Used wisely, it's an effective system maintenance solution that includes many useful extras.
