When an application is downloaded almost a Million times in one week (last week), from CNET alone, you have to think, there must be something to it.
Application popularity is not always indicative of an application’s strength of course – I can think of more than a few super popular applications, that I wouldn’t have on a system for all the tea in China. But that’s a subjective analysis on my part.
In the case of IObit’s Advanced SystemCare Free ( updated Feb 23, 2010), a comprehensive PC care utility, that takes a one-click approach to help protect, repair, and optimize a PC, I can understand the enthusiasm.
This free application provides a super convenient solution for PC maintenance and protection. And if you like, you can complete all maintenance in a minute or two, with just one click.
Alternatively you can approach selective maintenance tasks individually.
The main user interface, which is restricted to a few push buttons, (spyware removal; Registry cleaning; privacy sweep; junk file deletion), couldn’t be easier.
You have the option of taking full control over each process however, if you prefer, as the following example indicates.
The application doesn’t stop with just maintenance though. With the optimization applet you have the opportunity to optimize your machine to reflect how you use it.
There are a host of additional tools, included with this application, for users who like to “get under the hood”.
Fast facts – from the developers site:
Speed Up with Turbo Boost
Advanced SystemCare is built with Turbo Boost to speed up PC by shutting down unnecessary background processes, cleaning RAM, and intensifying processor performance.
Next-generation Registry Cleaner and System Optimization
Safely cleans registry junks, compacts registry bloat and defragments the registry for blistering-fast performance.
Speeds Up PC Performance and Internet Access
Tunes up Windows by releasing the built-in power of your system.
Fixes Multiple System Errors
More than a mere free XP registry cleaner – keeps your PC stable and running at peak efficiency.
As well as keeping your machine physically clean, it is always good practice to keep your computer’s operating system and subsystems clean, so that you can get maximum performance from your machine. This free application can certainly help you do just that.
System requirements: Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000 (32bit and 64bit).
