Advanced SystemCare Free – Version 4.0 Blasts Off Today

imageIObit has been offering a comprehensive PC care utility (Advanced SystemCare), that takes a one-click approach to help protect, repair, and optimize your computer, since 2006. IObit continues this strong tradition with the release of Advanced SystemCare Free Version 4.0, which is now available for download.

This latest edition continues to provide a super convenient solution for PC maintenance and protection – including the ability to complete all maintenance in a minute or two, with just one click.

There are a host of improvements in this new edition but, for now, I’ll focus on just two, since I haven’t yet had a chance to comprehensively test the application.

One click to solve as many as 10 common PC problems – With one click, it scans and repairs ten PC problems and protects your PC from hidden security threats. The newly added “Disk Scan” and “Vulnerability Fix”, helps scan and fix disk errors and Windows vulnerabilities.

More than 20 dedicated smart tools for everyday PC maintenance – Replacing the original “Utilities” module in version 3, Advanced SystemCare 4 integrates IObit’s latest Toolbox, which has more than 20 dedicated smart tools for everyday PC maintenance, or advanced needs – including tools for system cleaning, optimizing and repairing, tools for security enhancement, and tools for full control over the system.

Installation and configuration are straightforward and one screen “follow the bouncing ball” simple. I should point out that a toolbar is no longer offered as part of the install.

A new and improved user interface, focuses on  four major PC areas – as shown in the following graphic.

    Thank you Bill

    ###
    NEGATIVE: Some of the best features are only enabled in the ‘Pro’ version

    ###
    POSITIVE: For two months I have had ten Microsoft Update ‘KB….’ items that keep failing to install on my XP system (The Microsoft Update site insists there’s ’0 kb’ to download because I supposedly already have these KB’s somewhere ready & waiting to be installed)

    It’s been driving me nuts for weeks

    I ran “Security Holes Scanner” in the “Toolbox” menu & it told me about these items & it DOWNLOADED & successfully installed 8 of them

    I’ve been to the Microsoft Update site & it confirms I have only 2 install failures to sort out now

    I haven’t got a clue how this software sorted that out

    • Hi Michael,

      So, no longer do we have to deal with a Toolbar but instead, we have an upgrade choice. Still, at $12.99, not a bad deal.

      Took a look at Security Holes Update and it has me stumped as well. But, whatever works. :)

      Thanks for the quick report.

      Best,

      Bill

    Hi Bill,
    Very timely indeed as it now begs the question, Advanced SystemCare Free Version 4.0 (or Pro) V System Mechanic 10. I appreciate the fact that you may have not had time to properly access ASC 4.0 just yet though. :-)

    My time is almost up with the trial of SM 10 so I have to make a decision one way or another, but the one gripe I have with SM 10 is that it demands a reboot after it performs its cleanup, as my boot-ups are exceeding long………………………………………………………………….

    Cheers,
    John
    PS Thanks for that link yesterday I’m working on it.

    • Hi John,

      System Mechanic 10 is an entirely different animal than Advanced SystemCare Free. Can’t really compare them – it’s like apples and bananas.

      Best,

      Bill

      • John

        Oh,
        I thought they did very similar things, sorry my mistake. :-$
        Cheers,
        John

        • Hey John,

          No, you’re right in a way – at one level both apps have similar functions. The difference is in the depth – apps like TuneUp Utilities, Auslogics BoostSpeed 5, and System Mechanic, dig deep, deep, deep. One reason for the bigger bucks. :)

          Best,

          Bill

  3. Bill,

    I just installed and went through each of the components. AWESOME!

    I believe this will now be my “do it all” maintenance utility.

    Thanks,

    Rick
