Dear users,

If you can't activate the code, it is most likely that we have exceeded the activation limits set by the developer. We've already contacted iObit representatives and asked them to extend the number of available activations.
Please mind that due to the differences in time-zones it may take a while before we resolve the issue.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Always yours,
GOTD Team

Works Fine and does what it states just make sure you only enable features you need or want in the quick setup (right click system tray icon )

This Key will work with all ver 11 updates but will NOT work with ver 12 when it is released later this year (disable auto update or set it to notify only )

And IT even works with windows XP for those with older PC"s / Servers :)

I have downloaded previous versions of this program here before and I have also bought the program from the company for my computers. It has been for me one of my favorite programs to keep my system running the way I want it. I rely on the included Performance Monitor to keep my ram usage in check when I am using too many tabs in my browser.

Just purchased a 3 licence one for £10.58 from a company " Dealarious" only yesterday. the cheapest one I have found. been using it for years, great program, if you have an ssd drive untick the "registry defragment box " highly recommended. and free for 6months. worth a try ideal for anyone new to computing, just leave everything on default setting until you are more savvy.

i have read many reviews, the biggest criticism of this software is that it does harm to the registry. multiple comments of bad registries over time. My recommendation is to use the functions selectively and dispense with the auto features. Programmers comment on this would be appreciated.

Don, I've been repairing and upgrading PC's for over 20 years, and your statement is a fallacy. IF you know what you're doing, there are literally hundreds of worthless reg entries that can be deleted. BUT, that is an IF! UN-knowledgeable people should leave it alone and live with just how slow the worthless junk makes your pc.

csc, You make it sound like I am saying something totally out of the blue that has not been said by many others in the past.

Personally I have used CCleaner to clean the registry and had problems with it, but it was around the same time period I was testing ASC and other similar programs, the consensus at the time was to not clean the registry, if that has changed that would indeed be good news, but based on my experience I would be too gun shy to try again, weary of reinstalling Windows multiple times.

Let the individual user be the judge of whether things have changed.

Don, perhaps it's something else you're doing wrong that, in combination with a registry cleaner, is causing problems for you and others. I have used ASC Pro for many years including the registry cleaner and never had any problems at all.

Reply   |   Comment by Scott  –  10 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

csc, I’ve also been using CCLeaner for years with zero problems.

In fact, a couple of years ago a friend who was in charge of computer security at the FBI before he retired (and is now in responsible for computer security at a large stock brokerage firm), said the first software I install on my (then-new) computer should be CCleaner and MalwareBytes.

On the other hand, before that, I used SystemMechanic to “optimize” a previous computer. It deleted essential files from the registry, and I ended up reinstalling Windows and all software.

I don’t see how you can judge a software application on the basis of another application.

Though cleaned regularly using CCleaner and WISE Care, http://phota.me/Wcuj.png shows Advanced System Care Pro 11.5.0 found 578 invalid registry entries!!

Absent from the above and other programs, it performed 36 internet improvements and 12 system optimizations!

Copied onto a thumb drive and run, about the same optimizations were performed on another laptop.

Whether improvements will be felt, like other programs, it's hard to tell.

Hon Kong, Actually, messing way too much with the registry is one of the reasons I stopped using Advanced System Care.

If you insist in letting it do so, sooner or later you will be sorry. Speaking from experience. Yes, it improves performance, but having to reinstall Windows to fix registry issues is not my idea of an improvement.

Neat site at [ PissedConsumer . com ], some tips and tricks there, BUT without a DATE on the complaints, there's not much I can correlate to today's offering BUT one complaint said they called IObit and the IObit tech demanded remote access then claimed there were 300+ viruses and claimed it needed additional service right now ... c'mon, folks, never execute a transaction you did not initiate ... the "customer" hung up, but said no more in their complaint.

When I call ANY tech support, I just say "uh huh, uh huh, okay, I'll try that can call back" and then search the web and or call in again up to 3 times to see what other techs at that company says averse to each other.

But I am curious, if IObit DOES scam / phish when folks call for support, PLEASE tell us to warn us.

Thanks.

If it says [ Pro ] at the top, then your license from the previous version is already installed, carrying over to this version.

Try any [ Pro ] feature in the program, and if it works, you win, otherwise it will THEN ask.

Otherwise, click [ Enter code ] UNDERNEATH the big orange [ Activate Now ].

[ Activate Now ] means "go to web to BUY it", so, don't click [ Activate Now ].

LOVE this, thanks -- mostly I use the [ Toolbox ], not the auto-clean anything, because I prefer to manually select what I want, and what I delete.

Note, folks:

-- the free version is plenty, the pro version adds some auto-update and tools features, but reverts to free after the pro license expires, so the free features work forever,

-- IObit ( and other programs, IObit is by no means unusual ) installs auto-start background programs, but none from IObit are malicious, they nag to buy this and other IObit programs, so to eliminate the nag, and other unintended auto-stuff, always turn off auto stuff using free programs like Microsoft Sysinternals AutoRuns and ProcExp, MSConfig, Task Manager, and so on, and then reboot after running any IObit program ( though IObit Smart Defrag recently did NOT install any background nags -- good for them ! ).

... I will never understand who votes and why, the above information got + and minus votes over time, now resting at -6.

So, some think that it was not helpful for them to review end user witness testimony that
-- the tools are useful
-- and the background auto-install stuff is obnoxious, but not risky, and easily removed?

Okay.

Vote on.

I think that if folks can't even understand the "Did you find this comment useful?" question, then no wonder folks have such difficulty figuring out the software download, the install, the registration, and the use of GOTD's offerings.

-- WinUtilities Memory Optimizer,
-- Glary Startup Manager,
-- SysInternals AutoRuns and ProcExp,
-- Malwarebytes ADWCleaner,

I stopped using their products because the "errors" they found always included the fact that I hadn't bought and installed every one of their products. It's also far too easy to miss that they have "conveniently" added downloads of them all to the list of "fixes" you need and suddenly you have all their other stuff installed on your system, too. They really buried where you could see that and uncheck it, even when you're looking for it.

Not for me, thanks.

Yes, that's EXACTLY what happens when you abandon responsibility for your own computer.

And not just with IObit ... have you ever clicked on ALL Microsoft updates, or left them on auto-install, including to Windows 10, and then wonder what happened averse to your intentions?

Instead, responsible users know their choices well before they click "yes, continue".

IObit doesn't surprise me because I inspect what I expect before clicking through -- it's MY computer, after all.

Peter Blaise, I was referring to the "one click fix" as it used to be (pretty much tested and trusted back then). Now it directs you to download more programs to actually do what was standard years ago. Yes I know you can select which actions before hitting the "one click fix". Now I use a couple of different programs to do what I need, and keeps me running faultlessly

Thanks for explaining, but no, one-click never before did everything, especially uninstall programs you no longer need or didn't know were installed, or update hardware drivers and resolve driver conflicts, hence IObit's tease to also download and install IObit Uninstaller and IObit Driver Booster.

I got lucky some five days ago. Their version 12 is even better. They give away 70 or so copies each day for free. Also the Pro version but for a full year and it works on three PCs.

Mind you, if you forget to cancel just before the first year is up, unlike GOTD where you don't need your debit/credit card, you will get charged about £17/$25 for those three PCs and 12 additional months.

Anyway, even version 11.5 is a five star program. I've been using this tool since they called it Advanced Windows Care (for 10+ years) and have never come across a better clean up application. Highly recommended. Don't miss it today!

IObit Advanced SystemCare v12:
[ https://purchase.iobit.com/en/asc/asc12preorderofficial.php?ref=officialpro ]
adding:
Privacy Shield
-- Block secret access to your files and photos
-- Inform you when there is a secret access to your private files and photos and allow you to block it.

Digital Fingerprint Protection
-- No one can know the things you do online
-- Prevent trackers from snooping on what you read, view, and purchase by disguising your digital fingerprint.

Anti-Cryptocurrency Mining
-- Stop sudden crashes, computer overheat and shutdown
-- Stop malicious websites using your computer to secretly mine cryptocurrencies and result in crashes, overheat, and system shutdown.

And no, they were Advanced Windows Care for only 3 years from 2005 to 2008, versions 1 and 2, but from version 3 they were Advanced SystemCare.

Yes, it is a tool, use it manually, intelligently, and intentionally.

Sorry, guys. I have no clue where it came from. Let me check iObit's site and update you. I believe it came directly from them.

Hughjocapivvy,

The link above is correct. Just checked it. 500 a day (today), only 49 available at the moment.

I can only guess they repeat this thing every day. Anyway, the page looks precisely like the one I used (and no, contrary to one of these comments, it is not a 30 day trial).

All gone (for today).

$16.77 until they repeat it, if they do, tomorrow.

One year, 3 PCs.

Peter Blaise,


Thanks for the link.


And yes, they were Advanced Windows Care for only 3 years from 2005 to 2008, versions 1 and 2, and from version 3 they were Advanced SystemCare.

Glad you sort of confirmed that my rough time estimate was right (10+ years ago it had a different name). Thanks for your positivity.

Ota, thank you for the clarification. It must send me to a different page when I use Peters link, as the sign up page (the one where they want your visa card number as confirmation) informs me

"Your 30-day trial for Advanced SystemCare 12 PRO (1 Year subscription / 3 PCs) lasts until 09 November 2018.

The price after the trial period is £18.40. If you do not want to continue using this product/service, you can cancel the new subscription purchase before the trial ends and you will not be charged (we will email you 5 days before the trial ends to remind you). Otherwise, you will automatically be charged £18.40 to continue using the product/service without interruption."
hence my original comment.

[ Ota ],

IObit has been wandering around the trademark registration game pretty randomly ( search the US Trademark Office ), and I wonder what is the influence on them by Microsoft Windows Live OneCare ( no spaces ), leading to IObit SystemCare ( also no spaces ), and possible warnings from Microsoft or their own lawyers not to use "Windows" in their name, plus the scares throughout the time of virus droppers called Advanced System Protector and Advanced System Repair ( with spaces ), and the need to differentiate themselves from both Microsoft and virus droppers.

Positivity wise, there's no reason NOT to be kind to each other, ever, is there?

;-)

Note for our historical documents: In 2003, Microsoft released Windows OneCare Live and subsequently renamed it Windows Live OneCare, a security and performance enhancement program based on the multi-platform RAV Reliable Anti-virus, which Microsoft purchased from GeCAD Software Srl in 2003, but subsequently discontinued in 2010, it was available as an annual paid subscription, replaced by free Microsoft Security Essentials and free Windows Defender, also bought from outside Microsoft ( as are almost all Microsoft products NIH "not invented here" ).

Peter Blaise,

Thanks for that, Pete.

I have noticed your name here at GOTD for quite a while. As you (and your comments) seem to be very pleasant and helpful, with some sarcastic/critical exceptions (I can certainly handle both types), I was wondering if you would be cool with being both a feedback/research provider and a common sense officer, should the latter even exist.

If so, I would like to stay in touch with you. There might be a project or two you could be downright perfect for.

Re the free version as opposed to licensed version.
The only thing I seem to notice between free and paid is the number of days that pass between having to do scans. Two days at most on Windows 10, with the free version.
The licensed version and sometimes I can go two weeks before having to do a scan.
It's probably due to the free version not cleaning everything it is supposed to do.
Other than that, a scan is quickly done, however I want to remind you, that if you are gaming, or doing anything that draws much RAM, shut down your game or project first before scanning with ASC.

Kenneth Smith, Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 has a maintenance center, more than enough to keep your PC clean. Other cleaners are unnecessary.

Ivanovich, please don't make comments about subjects of which you are wholly ignorant.

Feel_the_burn,
There are various cleaners available. Each one in turn tells you it has cleaned up everything, then immediately use the next and it will tell you there are things left.

The pro version adds tools and auto-update as well as deeper registry cleaning ( meaning, deeper register damage ).

[ Ivanovich ],

( 1 ) Run ANY 3rd-party cleaner after running ANY Microsoft cleaner to confirm that, no, Microsoft does not clean everything or even many things that are a unnecessary to have on one's hard drive ( and to always space-wastefully and time-consumingly have included in backups, check-disk scans, malware scans, defrag scans -f-o-r-e-v-e-r- ).

( 2 ) IObit Advanced System Care includes many tools for adjusting and tweaking settings for Microsoft and other products, and features, such as auto updating, NONE of which are included in Microsoft's "maintenance center".

( 3 ) Microsoft themselves purchased and offers FREE the powerful suite of SysInternals utilities to go far beyond Microsoft's own meager pedestrian minimum "maintenance center" placebo.

Enjoy, folks, and don't be afraid -- be aware, be curious, be informed, be intelligent, and be powerful.

Microsoft doesn't even claim to do what IObit and other utilities offer that end-users and administrators want, and Microsoft effectively admitted their own incapabilities by having to go out and purchase SysInternals because no one at Microsoft knew how to accomplish what SysInternals can do.

Microsoft ain't thinking of your computer, they are thinking of your wallet, they are a marketing company, not an original source of programming savvy company -- almost everything Microsoft markets they purchased from other original programmers, they did not invent themselves.

Ivanovich, I know Windows 10 does and 8 did also. Its just I've had ASC in my system for so long I just wait for this to come along and get the free license every time. Im grad with associates in IT, but sometimes even we don't like to change things.

Zen , I agree with you on that one. You can run CCCleaner, ASC Glary Utilities and many others back to back and yes each one is going to find something the previous scan missed on their looking for problems.

Kenneth Smith, CCleaner, ASC Glary Utilities, WinUtilities, Wise Utilities and a few others, also the rentalware, claiming that they have the best maintenance program for you. Who still believes that kind of developers?
