Giveaway of the Day – Glary Utilities Pro 2.41 Free – Today Only

imageIt might surprise you to learn, I’ve reported on (by way of review), or linked to –  Glary Utilities (freeware edition) 23 times in the last 24 months. No, I don’t hold shares in the company – wish I did Smile .

There’s a much more transparent explanation – Glary Utilities Free – designed to tweak, repair, optimize and improve system performance; and its ease of operation – makes it ideal for less experienced users.

If you’re part of the community here – I’ll wager that the free edition of Glary Utilities has found a home on either your Hard Drive or, the portable edition has been installed to a USB stick.

If you’ve passed on making the decision to purchase the pro version – no worries. Today only – Giveaway of the Day, has a super offer – Glary Utilities Pro 2.41 Free!.

You can read my last full review of the freeware edition here – Free Glary Utilities Is Indispensable. Really?

Since reviewing software (both free and commercial), is a good part of what I do as a blogger, I’ve tested and evaluated more than a thousand applications in the last few years. Sad to say, 30% or so, have turned out to be “not fit for consumption”. No, you normally don’t get to read reviews on the dreck – better to focus on what lives up to expectations, and not what doesn’t.

A quick application overview:

Disk Cleaner Removes junk data from your disks and recovers disk space

Registry Cleaner scans and cleans your registry to improve your system’s performance

Shortcuts Fixer eliminates the errors in your start menu & desktop shortcuts

Startup Manager manages programs which run automatically on startup

Memory Optimizer monitors and optimizes free memory in the background

Tracks Eraser erases all traces, evidence, cookies, internet history and more

File Shredder erases files permanently

Internet Explorer Assistant manages Internet Explorer Add-ons

Disk Analysis provides detailed information files and folders

Duplicate Files Finder searches for space-wasting duplicate files

Empty Folders Finder removes empty folders (I love this feature)

Uninstall Manager completely uninstall programs

And – much, much more

I think you’ll agree – it’s hardly surprising that this noteworthy system utility is at the top of the pyramid in its category of system tools.

Languages: 23 Languages available.

System Requirements: Windows 7, 2000, XP, Vista. 32/64 bit versions.

  1. Bill,

    Good deal… I am a real advocate of the Glary Utilities and is great for the computer user at home.

    Just posted a link regarding your post over at Bookmarks4Techs.com

    I’d actually be interested in reviews about the dreck if those applications are popular or at least get a lot of web-buzz. Would be nice to have a a reliable source tell me to stay away without me having to hassled with installing on my system. In fact, Bill, generally when I look at reviews I tend to focus on the bad ones because then I can tell right away if the problem is something that will be a problem for me or is a non-issue. Good reviews don’t help much because they generally highlight specs which I can read by themselves. So while a good review is nice because it can introduce me to software or hardware I didn’t know about, negative reviews about well known products would also be helpful, especially if you offered alternatives.

    Thanks.

    • Hi Muncher,

      You make a very good point.

      It’s frustrating, spending time testing an application (with note taking and capture apps open), only to find that it’s not up to job. In those circumstances, I’ve generally discarded my work. Regretfully, I should add.

      So yes, time for a change. Time to post on the “less than acceptable” applications.

      A very good suggestion which I’ll run with. Thank you.

      Best,

      Bill

    Good one! I think That was one of the first pieces of software I ever downloaded from GOTD back in Dec of 2006. They started October 24, 2006. One of the many things I learned from there is READ THE COMMENTS. Always, always, always read the comments. They can give you alternatives that are better and free or what to look for when installing to avoiding FUBARing your PC. Their forum can be quite helpful too. NTM they have a gaming project that has a list of over a 1,000 freeware games alphabetically with genre.

    IIRC, Glary does a restore point automatically…but if it doesn’t..make sure you do one. Er…did I say..Read the comments!

    • Hey Delenn13,

      I see your point – but, let me add a warning. Users need to be VERY careful in being guided by comments. It’s important to remember – comments are often made by people who are clueless. On top of which, comments are not always the genuine article.

      Just this morning, I found this comment regarding Sandboxie – “You don’t need this application. You just need a good AV”. Now there’s a comment written by someone who’s drunk far too much of AV developers’ Kool-Aid. A perfect example of a “clueless” comment. A comment that should not be relied upon.

      Opinion is one thing – but educated opinion is an entirely different matter.

      Frankly, I rarely, if ever, read review comments. I find them quite useless.

      Sorry. 😦

      Best,

      Bill

        No problem. I agree. (There used to be one poster for about a year he posted this gripe on every program…..Won’t work on Win NT, I swear; he did.) But..there is always a but…If you see 100 thumbs UP and every comment is negative, use your head. Me would think..the developer has a lot of friends and I have seen that with certain softwares. Also if you watch the comments on GOTD, you get to know the posters that are knowledgeable. Fubar, BuBBy, Mike and a few others come to mind.

        And Like I said..they do give alternatives. If you were to lose the giveaway to a format, then you could either buy the software(which I have done a lot)..or check out the alternative.

        • Hey Delenn13,

          Yep – Like you, I have a bunch of sites – Wilders – Raymond – and one or two others, where I at least consider the comments.

          Best,

          Bill

    Z szacunkiem dla autora, propagowanie programów (Glary Utilities , Serif) zawierających podejrzane elementy jest niedopuszczalne i karygodne!

    • Hi Herman,

      The following is a translation of your comment – “With respect to the author, the promotion of programs (Glary Utilities, Serif) containing suspicious items is unacceptable and shameful!”

      You’re well aware, I’m sure, that you have made a serious accusation. But, you’re going to have to do much better than that, I’m afraid.

      Not only have you accused me of being party to malware distribution but, you have called into question the reputation of both Glary Utilities, and Serif software.

      Are you for real? Please provide evidence (of any kind) that what you allege is correct.

      I look forward to your response.

      Bill
