Let me start out by saying that IObit develops some really good programs and usually very competitively priced ($49.99? If you go to the IObit site ASC sells for $19.99 and Ultimate $29.99 and they are running a special for ASC bundled with three more popular IObit titles for under $25 - Great Deal), however, with that said I have never been an IObit fan. Why? Because even if you take IObit programs out of the Startup Que, like Microsoft, Google, Norton, IObit hides files in the OS to ensure that their programs will continue to be put in the Startup Que and be able to phone home; in other words they think that they have the right to control your computer and what happens on it.

Not sure I'd have installed "Advanced System Care (ASC)" if I'd known it is an IObit program, but I did. I didn't get to install it until yesterday 31 December 2016 and since then Scotty "WinPatrol" has been continually alerting me of changes that IObit has wanted to make to my system.

I will give "ASC" a fair shot and give it a try, but my gut feeling is that when it's all said and done I'll be Uninstalling "ASC" for it's continual intrusion.

Thank you Giveaway of the day!!! I've really been hoping I'd get this software for free for a decent amount of time, perhaps to check if the company and the software is worth trusting and purchasing. Now I can. Thanks a ton, and hopefully by the end of this license, I can give a good review.

Cheers, you did it again. :)

I finally was able to activate it. What I did was , try and reinstalling the program again (right on top of the first install9)and that led me back to the add that talks about gaining 300% more speed. Only this time under the said information was a registration area I had been looking for. Now I entered the registration code.And it worked. I will admit it took me a hell of a long time to find this. It is possible that the registration code area was there all along and I just didn't page down far enough, d but I doubt that.
I had good luck with this software/app before and ilt worked ok. I know that there is no longer a need for half of this stuff but now that I have a i7 it doesn't lock up my PC any longer maybe its the win 10 thats the saving grace. any way if this help someone then it was worth my time to try and help, Merry Christmas

Regardless of any claims by users that this program is wonderful, has been used for some number of years without incident, or other, it is meaningless without knowing the expertise each of those users have. They may be using a simple computer for simple purposes. More technical users with their own tweaks are the ones that are most leery of installing a program such as, and especially this program.

I have several older computers I use to test out products such as the ASC offer, but I will not be wasting any more time on testing this company's products. Just like if you decide you don't like anchovies on your pizza, you probably will not order them on very many of your future pizza orders. I have tested IoBit's Advanced System Care over the years ever since they first came onto the market known as Advanced Windows Care. The program has evolved, but no matter what advances the product has made, the developers have continued to make a product that pretends it is doing more good than it actually does.

Here is one example. I became suspicious early on when the program claimed that it would enhance my settings for the best Internet access. Around the time that access to the Internet was becoming Broadband, the registry settings could be manipulated to handle the broadband data faster by adjusting key values for buffer sizes. Initially, tweaking forums and articles published what registry values to tweak, and what settings could improve performance. Due to many users being vary of making Registry settings manually, several tweaking programs jumped in to offer the same settings automatically.

The problem was, there weren't a lot of variations on what the settings should be tweaked to, so once the settings were made, there was no need to alter them after that point. Decent tweaking programs checked for these tweaks, and did not suggest altering them since they had already been made. Therefore, when a different product informs me that those same settings need to be tweaked by their program to enhance my Internet experience, I naturally became suspicious. Advanced System Care claimed my settings were not tweaked for maximum performance, gave proof of the old values (however values that did not exist before running the program), and then claimed to make the correct adjustments, ... in order to convince me their program was doing me a favor. I also have testing tools, and no performance gains were made.

What is more interesting, is that for every new release of Advanced System Care, again, the program would inform me that it needed to tweak the same settings that supposedly it had already made in the past, and magically they had reverted to poor performance settings as proof they needed tweaking. No matter how well your system is tweaked, this program pretended it needed tweaking by ASC. I tracked these changes before and after the program ran, and found that the program was straight-out lying to users, apparently hoping they will be naive users.

If any technical person is interested, save a copy of your Registry before and then compare to the values after install and tweaking with this program. If it is still doing the same thing, it is proof enough that this is not the type of program you need to improve your computer. But even if it no longer does this, they have already lost favor with me, and since there are greater alternatives, there is no love lost.

After the fiasco I experienced, I really started becoming suspicious of the entire company, its claims, and its testimonials. I found that others had already become suspicious as well. As far as I can tell, none of the testimonials are real people. It all appears to be marketing hype. What I did find is that by removing the program via a system restore can be the greatest performance improvement I could make. To boot, you cannot see the ads if the program is not installed to produce them.

I am passing on this one only because I see that it comes with a lot of advertising and I get enough of the on the internet and don't need to add to it with programs that I install.
But I am very disappointed in reading the comments I see some that have to do with the product itself but what is going on with all the members here at this site? I have belonged to this site for a very long time and have always enjoyed reading the comments and the helpfulness of the members but this time it's just disgusting!
People are either throwing digs and comments at each other or making comments about the software that really have nothing to do with it and or just digs at it.
I know we have all just gone through the holidays that are stressful and take there toll on a lot of us. But I really hope we can get back to what we were and where we were and that is a friendly bunch of geeks with helpful comments on the software we were being offered.
This use to be one of my favorite sites that I looked forward to coming to and seeing what was offered that day and what all of us had to say about that software and I hope that we can get back there to that site.
GOTD has always offered us software free of charge never bombed us with pop ups during the process and always offered us virus free software and have done the best they could. I just hope they don't get to the point of everyone saying bad things about them that they in turn say the heck with you we are offering you free software that normally costs money but why should we continue to try and help a bunch of ungrateful people? (That'snot towards everyone here on the site you know who you are and who I mean).
Thanks GOTD for the offer today but like I said with all the comments about pop up advertisements with this software I'll pass!

As with any other "suite" program available, ASC from Iobit will of course off the "Standard" or "Advanced" installation options. IF you do not wish to have additional packages installed, select the Advanced option and customise your installation.

ASC does NOT destroy any builds of Windows unless you're running the garbage that is Windows 8 or dare I say Vista. In that case, honestly, you deserve whatever happens to you. (Sorry, but it had to be said.)

ASC has 100% customization in what you want it to do or not do. If you're not proficient in what to do then by all means, DON'T. ASC is called ADVANCED System Care for a reason. If you want a tool that is simple point, click and have it do it for you, then feel free to have some other tool do it for you, but to claim this tool is a resource hog or a build killer is honestly ridiculous because it couldn't be further from the truth. I've run ASC for their last 4-5 major releases including through the beta stages before they've gone through public preview and have never had a single build get killed.

Maybe I just got lucky or maybe it's my more than 30 yrs experience in I.T. so I do customize my installation to where I do not install the Driver Booster, Smart Defrag and other tools offered. Yes.......all of Iobit's apps will offer their other products just like 90% of other companies do, but how do you think they afford to give their software away for free multiple times per year? Iobit gives away every one of their products no less than 4 times per year.

Customize your installations. If you have Kaspersky or god forbid Symantec (Norton), then yes......you may face some issues, but don't claim that it's Iobit that's causing issues. Kaspersky and Symantec cause issues with a lot of applications. Iobit ASC Ultimate version actually includes Bitdefender as part of the application to offer antivirus protection on top of the spyware protection already built into the application.

In the end....it's simple......try it for yourself. If you like it, use it. If not, you've lost nothing because ASC DOES remove completely if you choose to uninstall it and it hasn't cost you anything considering it's free.

Hi there, everyone. I'm glad I always check the feedback before downloading. I didn't realize this program was from IObit.

Ok, here's the thing. What Richard is talking about is absolutely true. I think it's easy to continue using IObit software, thinking that the issues you're experiencing are unrelated. IObit itself doesn't harm your computer, but there seems to be some secondary partner programs (such as MoboGenie) which mysteriously end up on your computer after downloading these PC cleaner software programs. MoboGenie itself isn't strictly speaking a malware program, but it creates massive security gaps that allows any number of spy programs into your registry. It wasn't until I hit the forums that I understood why I was continually these spyware programs on my computer. I traced it back to MoboGenie, and apparently this was one of the programs I agreed to allow on my computer when I checked the 'terms and agreements' box. Now, don't quote me on that, it's been several years since I've dealt with this issue, but I suggest that you look at some of the comments on this site: http://www.shouldiremoveit.com/

I don't suggest downloading any of their software since I myself have never tried it, but I think you can find some useful feedback about problem programs on this site.

Hey, giveawayoftheday.com, wonderful site! No complaints here.

Beware any software from them. Their "software" has destroyed my PC builds dozens of times over the last decade. I'm only logging in to give you all a fair warning ⚠️

Richard Sebire, please give us more details of the problem. I have been using this program for about 8 months and have really enjoyed it. I am not very savvy on recent computer problems, so I very well could be missing something. So far, this program has played well with AVG and Glary (and several add-ons). I would like to know what to look for.

It's up to you, install what you want. But I'm more than happy with my CCleaner Proffesional thanks. It's never given me one problem.

Also when you uninstall this check your program files folder, you won't be able to delete the IOBit folder even if you use Unlocker

Father Richard, over a decade their "software" has destroyed many builds.
If you uninstall this, then go to your program files folder, can you delete the IOBit folder? No? Even with Unlocker? It's a separate program..
This folder and its contents will remain on your drive indefinitely and apparently even report on you occasionally, as it does also seem to get larger and larger as time goes by.
I like your name by the way.
Enjoy what's left of the holidays my friend, but I'm happy with my CCleaner Proffessional now. I hear IOBit and I shudder. PS, I've been computing since Dos 6.22 and Windows 3.11 Work groups, yet IOBit still gives me a shudder...

Richard Sebire, I have used IOBIT software for years. Both the free and paid versions of most of their programs. I have never had a problem with any of them. My systems work just fine before and after installs and many uses of them. I use the weekly clean part and it does a great job and my system has no problems, ever. Good programs and great company.

Richard Sebire, I agree with You.I can't remember how many systems I repaired thanks to I-Obit products.(Driver Booster on 1st place-driver updater well known for installing drivers from sites with ''interesting'' reputation).Then this ''advanced'' system care.well packed in appealing and modern GUI(like all their products),leaving people in deception that their system is well tweaked because of ASC.In practice this software can't do nothing more than some free cleaners!Messing with registry with I-Obit product will destroy your OS sooner or latter.Kerish Doctor,Ashampoo Win optimizer,Reg Organizer(if You want to mess with registry) are reliable tools.I'm not using CCleaner anymore but their PRO version is also by far better than this.Ann one more thing--I-Obit Malware Fighter!!! Worst coded anti malware product ever!!! (in fact this isn't anti malware,no one knows what is it).I will never forget people faces after testing this software-with giant question mark above their heads!And I'm so glad that someone mentioned interesting leftovers injected in system after uninstalling I-Obit products.They are not only company which exploit non experienced people,but they are worst one(read the terms before installing)...and yes,they have most beautiful GUI-s..If their products are so good why they are on giveaways every week(latest version)!? good ones only when new version is available or never...I know that many people would not agree with me,but everybody have right for own opinion.Happy New Year to GOTD team and users all over the world!

Soft Maker, So classy...now I don't understand how I manage to maintain all those systems before Google!? Maybe education,or I was just lucky...I don't know.but I know from various sites,forums etc. for all kind of problems caused by using bad system optimizers.and following your ''polite'' advice I google a bit and in few minutes found (too) many bad examples regarding ASC.here is just one of many ''Warning; if you download IObit's Advanced System Care you are very likely to download with it the Yahoo Re-direct Rootkit virus. There is no indication and it's downloaded whether you download from CNet or IObit. The virus takes over all your browsers and redirects them to Yahoo. All the browser resetting in the world will not get your browsers away from Yahoo. It's very difficult to eradicate. None of the anti-virus products work. Norton Internet Security missed it and Malwarebytes, Hitman, Stinger & Spybot didn't get rid of it. If you have a System Restore prior to downloading, that might work. It did once for me. The only other way I eradicated it was to use disc imaging software and to re-install an earlier image of the disc. For me, I shall never go anywhere near ASC ever again.'' this is from PC Advisor...everybody have right for opinion! try to google definition of word Idiot before using it..and maybe one more- etiquette(noun)-the customary code of polite behavior in society or among members of a particular profession or group.

Richard Sebire, If you want to delete the folder etc., make a batch file to do it at the next reboot.

Richard Sebire,

Couldn't you just boot off a Linux CD and delete the folder? I've never had a problem doing that.

Richard, hornestly I could have said the same about two years ago. I love the Iobit Uninstaller. Used it a lot, come to find out my system got messed up many times where I had to re-install Windows 7 and 8.1. I learnt when I was about to move to Windows 8.0 that I was doing something wrong. Before then, I used to get very frustrated. I stopped having problems when I stopeed uninstalling everything the app found, that is, the SHARED FILES. I will scroll through the findings and ONLY removed the path(s) with the software to be installed. Since then, don't have issues with the uninstaller. Then, I thought I was doing a 'good' cleanup. Personally, I like and enjoy the Iobit softwares. Just my opinion!

Ah, Richard..it appears I'm not the only one who has bad memories when it comes to Advanced System Care.

First, anyone who knows me knows that I am not alarmist when it comes to software; I'm much more likely to blame the user when a problem arises, not the program. I should also state that ASC has many useful tools, which I've successfully used in the past. The problem arises from several components of the software which, used without thought, can bring your system to its knees. I've actually described it thusly when asked my opinion: ASC is like an extremely sharp knife; held the right way and with skill, you can make some quick cuts and get the job done--held the wrong way, you can cut yourself to ribbons and lie bleeding out on the ground. Sound dramatic? Not when you discover the hard way that a quick press of the "OK" button to a cavalierly presented program dialog box can result in a previously well-running Windows system being brought to its knees.

The story, in case anyone's interested... About a year and a half ago, I installed ASC on my nephew's laptop (it was for a particular purpose, the exact nature of which I forget, but it may have been for the 'Uninstaller" module, which I rather like). I left the program installed, thinking it may serve some useful purpose again in the future, but completely forgot that the program has several stay-resident system "maintenance" modules which continually operate on a schedule, unless deactivated. One of these was the nightmarish "registry cleaner", a type of program I dislike very strongly (and something the smart computer user eschews on general principle).
Anyway, as I'm the family "computer guy", one day my nephew called to report that his laptop "wasn't working." Since that imprecise phrase can mean virtually anything, I had him bring it over. I discovered that it was well and truly fouled up. Windows 8 took over 10 minutes to boot to the desktop, various programs failed to start when clicking on the usual icons, dozens of data files lost any association with their default program handlers, registered shell extensions were mysteriously missing, and a host of other problems. Hell, even his Minecraft mods were broken. I was quite mystified as to how a previously well-working system could be so completely decimated (I initially suspected malware, but after he got roped by some malicious drive-by downloads some five months earlier, I had plenty of prophylactic countermeasures in place and no--no virus or other malware was responsible for this mess). But after a good measure of detective work, including an interrogation of my nephew's recent computing activities, I discovered that the ever-helpful Advanced System Cleaner had a day earlier popped up a message stating that it had found "X number" (some amount in the hundreds apparently) of "junk files" and "obsolete" registry entries, and offered in its typically confident-sounding message something to the effect of "Hey, you don't want all these junk files and registry entries clogging up the works and slowing down your computer, right?...So just click here and we'll fix things up in a jiffy..." And my nephew, thinking any program his uncle had personally installed could do no harm, clicked "Yes."

Later, when trying to rectify this terrible mistake, I discovered that ASC had a few more surprises in store for us. While digging around in ASC, I found the incriminating entry in its logs, where a few lines and a timestamp told me that it had performed a system "cleanup" shortly before the kid's computer went into the toilet. However, I was initially relieved to find that ASC had performed a backup (or so it claimed) of whatever files it had decided to send into oblivion. "Thank goodness!" I proclaimed, "I will reverse this massacre of Windows and restore order!" However, my relief was short-lived, and annoyance turned to fury as I discovered that the so-called backup was essentially useless. ASC could NOT restore the system to its pre-massacre--er, "cleanup"--state; whether this was due to some program deficiency or because Windows itself was too damaged, I could not ascertain.

Finally, I turned to Windows' own System Restore feature. Going through the entries, I found a restore point from perhaps a week earlier. I cued this up and hit 'go', and in a few moments was greeted by a message which I had never before seen in all my years of computing on the Windows platform: "The system restore was not successful." Holy #@$%@ %@! Even the system restore components were damaged!?! At this point, my options had run out--I had no choice but to back up the kid's essential data files off-disk and turn to the manufacturer's OS restore partition for a full system refresh. I'd like to note that I consider a system-reinstall to be a draconian, last ditch effort that I've not been forced to do many times in my computing life. Even when I've been hired by clients to cure and resolve severe virus infestations, I can usually find something in my bag of tricks to get a system back to tip-top shape without going the reformat/reinstall route.

Make of this story what you will. To be honest, if someone else had told it, I'd normally say "well, that's anecdotal...any program can pose a danger if misused." And that's true. But when an app blithely offers to perform system "cleanups", implying to the user that it's safe, or even warranted (evoking the imagery that it's going to be like a wonderful spring-cleaning for your computer, and afterward everything is going to be so fast and sparkling-new)--well, that's just irresponsible. I'm not wishing to bash Iobit's software; like I said, there are some useful tools in ASC. But there are also some terrible ones, some of which are masquerading as benign "maintenance" utilities. And it is made worse when you discover that you can't necessarily rely on whatever safety checks, i.e., file backups, the program supposedly implements, because--for me, at least--they failed miserably.

Lastly, although the story I recounted is just one person's experience--or maybe two, my nephew's, and mine--I can sincerely say that as bad as it was for me (as the person tasked with troubleshooting and fixing the mess caused by ASC, and the many hours spent doing it), if it had happened to a less experienced computer user than I am, it could have been downright traumatic. I know many individuals who would not have been technically capable of recovering from this on their own, and at the very least they could very well be $200 poorer because they had to bring their machine to the "Geek Squad" or some other fix-it shop. Clearly, Richard Sebire has had at least one bad experience as well, and in this case I can say from experience that the gentleman is not being alarmist. Please use Advanced System Care with...well, care. At the very least, be sure to turn off any automated system 'tweaking' functions, and give careful thought to any tasks you execute which may have system-wide ramifications.

Peter v Rijswijk,

Stop spreading misinformation. The fact that IOBit stole proprietary data from Malwarebytes was proven. The evidence for it was laid out clearly, cogently, carefully, and in great detail by Malwarebytes. The case was made so strongly that any objective individual with more than a few functioning brain cells could see that a theft (which was in fact ongoing, at the time) had occurred. Moreover, it makes no difference that it happened in 2009. IOBit may have ceased this practice, and perhaps they've walked an honest path since then, but that it did happen is a matter of public record.

First of all,
I am not working for this company. Now I can say that this program is one of the best program to keep the computer up to date free of rust. I personally use this program and for years and never had any problem or issues, I also use IOBIT malware fighter, driver booster and smart defrag from the same company and they are excellent programs. Give a second chance and play with it to see all the features this program offer.

daddy, well, i believe than you never had any problems with it. It all depends on how you use its components, what i items do you choose to check in registry, or disk cleaner, what other options do you choose, and what version of Windows you're on. But i have my own reasons to dislike this software, and to consider it useless for me. And have even more reasons to not recommend it to novice users. My opinion is that it's dangerous for novices and nearly useless for pros.

MikeOD, Not to get into delving into intelligence which in my world includes being illiterate I will clarify my statement. I have Win10 which on my laptop I finally told it to go from Win 8 and load Win 10. That proceeded to happen and finished with no problems. I then ran all my checkers which included ASC free version at that time and shut the computer down when I was finished then fired it back up and no problems and the only thing I have that update automatically is Win 10 which includes Win Defender. Nothing else unless I let it. T,he laptop is a Toshiba Sat C750-A 17.3 screen, 8 GB and 750GB HD. Intelligence: I am a 2 tour Vietnam Vet in the Armys large cargo helicopter world , I retired after 20 yrs in 78, I also am retired from Bell Helicopter after the next 20yrs in quality management there and draw SS since I was a young 62, and am well into Medicare and have no medical payment problems due to my income from 2 good retirements and
SS and being retired military I have Tricare for life. I do have to pay the monthly cost for medicare, about $100 but do not miss it or the same for my wife due to retirement income. Now you can tell me how do you know for sure, 100%, what each and every update contains when any of your programs wants to update.

They use the windows registries as their scratch pad, thousands of entries all over the registries and can not be removed even with Revo uninstaller. I will never install their products anymore.
Using restore point after the fact is useless if you have installed new software after IOBit, you will lose them if you roll back to a clean point before the IObit installation.

Far too invasive and hard to get rid of.
Adverts are a real pain.
There are many MANY programs offering what this does for free.
CCleaner should be anyones 1st stop. Wise care or Win utilities (Also offered on here from time to time) are much friendlier, less bloated, take up less memory and have far more facilities.
What this has to offer is simply not needed by anyone past Windows 95

TerryE, You are right, CCleaner and all those others are the industry standard and all. About W95, If you are right that's not a bad thing. What I like about the screenshot so far is it reminds me of those old "tweaker" programs where most windows attributes were adjustable. Sorry, if you weren't there it's hard to explain. Here, as then, you might get an opportunity to easily explore what you may not know exists. Lots of GAOTD people, myself included, have a lot of learning to do.

Installed, wiped out previous versions of the program. Tried to activate by clicking the activate button on the main page. I found myself on a page full of advertisements and when I clicked on the activate button for this program I was taken to a page that wanted lots of personal and credit card information.
I tried several different times in case I was not doing things right, but each time ended on the page for personal and credit card information. Nowhere did I find a place to enter the activation code. After some consideration, I have decided to uninstall this program and run only Wise Care 365.
