I have recently encountered a huge problem with this software and have emailed support 3 times and not received any response. None whatsoever.

I have also now established that the product has recently been hugely discounted (Oct 2010) and this indicates that this Indian based company has failed, or is on the verge of failing. Such huge discounts indicate that attempts are being made reap maximum cash from unsuspecting customers before the owners / developers disappear over the horizon.

I do not recommend purchasing this product. The problem I have encountered is huge and the support response is zero.

I expect more tools from commercial software. If you search find some free program give you like these tools, like glary and advance system care. Also ASO has poor UI.

Looking to the statements then programs like this and i have seen a few in the past do not really belong here.
For those programs you have spam/add/trailware sides.

I just want to point out that this is Windows 7 compatible.

While SysTweak do not say that it support Windows 7, I have installed it on Windows 7 and it runs fine. Also the registry cleaner supports Windows 7 too – I ran a scan and all of the “errors” it found were safe to be remove and would not harm Windows.

However generally speaking you should never clean the regsitry, simply because almost always they will NOT fix any problems you are having with you PC, or make your PC run any faster.

I'm extremely disappointed in the process for this offer. The give away is only a free year trial. I might live with that, but in order to activate my free year trial, I must agree to accept SPAM emails from the company making the offer. I won't be accepting that. With all the programs that claim to do this, why would I want to be spammed?

Sigh. Pointless redirection for a universally same reg key. Bad company practices just to get email addresses. In case you never want to hear from this company again, there's a "Manage your subscription" link on the bottom of the message. Click it, and then untick the ASO GOTD line and tick the Do not Mail line. Submit and they're banished.

1. The stuff on this site is supposed to be forever free.. not free trials. Which is basically what this is for one year. Please dont do this stuff again, it strays from GOTD's entire basis of existence.

2. Though there are some things I dont like about this app, it does seem functional over all. But.. by far, this program is not worth the price PER YEAR when there are far better and comparible software out there for free. not to mention the shipping/download fees, and extended download fees.

--Basically, if the app was a one time fee of what the yearly fee costs, this would not be a bad deal, but current pricing would prevent any gain by purchasing this application that couldnt be done easily and cheaper with other apps. Not to mention the registration process for activating this app from GOTD... is completely annoying.

I use Tune Up Utilities 2009 and then do another scan with Glary Utilities (Free Version). One will catch somethings the other will not. I heard there were some problems with the Paid Glary Version in being too aggressive in action. When using both utilities above they work efficiently without doing any harm to your registry or programs.
When using more aggressive cleaners like Win Utilities, it can sometimes clean more than you wish in the registry and you have to go back in to make things right or delete the clean or do a system restore to before you did the cleaning.
I use the free version of Comodo firewall which is very satisfactory,
and does not hang up your computer like Zone Alarm.
Zone Alarm used to be very good years back, but something happened to it in the past few years, and it is not kind to the computer programs.
In the past I did use the "Paid Version" of Zone Alarm.

I should follow up with a good free program which is Tune up Utilities 2008.

I got the 411 from Asharf some time ago and it haa been a gem. Check out Asharf's site to find out how to get your free copy and it works with Vista 64 bit OS.

When it comes to cleaning always trust Comodo System Cleaner. It is good to see many people recommending it here. And never forget the best thing about it is its Safe Delete feature. Its a patent pending feature.

I have tested it many times. Comodo has made the best and safest cleaner. Read my Review if you want to.

A one year trial of an outdated product at the price of agreeing to accept unlimited future spam is not a giveaway. It is a bad bargain and a deception that I would not have agreed to if I had known the terms in advance.

I have wasted time downloading, installing, and applying for a registration code that turns out to be only for a trial and not for a true giveaway. If that is all that you are offering, GAOTD, please let us know up front so that we don't waste time trying to install a falsely promised giveaway.

THUMBS DOWN!

If you click on the link in their email so that you can get the activation code your email address will be gathered. Even though this is clearly stated it is still a little misleading as the URL diplayed in the email is not the actual URL to which you are taken. If you want the activation code without giving up your email address you can use the following link (which is what is displayed):

As to Comodo comments ...Yes the cleaner is a great cleaner but we are here to read comments and evaluations on the software that is being given away TODAY not what you can still download as of yet for free on the internet. If you are a regular reader of these comments then you have read a thousand times already how great Comodo is. Give it a Break.

As to the registration issue of the software offered today. How do you not know that the company may offer another free year after the year runs out if you resubscribe to their newsletter. Or subscribe to another newsletter of theirs.

As to the ethics, they are here to offer what they create hoping to sell it All software companies that list here want to have your business and an optin newsletter with the software is just a smart idea. It builds their list for them.

A2 squared, Mamutu they have membership sites for example that they mail to. Nobody complains about them. They require registration also.

Yeah i agree with all the people mentioning about v2, though i already h' v3 with my Serial which i purchased 1 month back, GOTD offering v2 is a little uncalled for......
And now-a-days their are no Serial provided in the Rar files, which makes it quite useless once a person formats his/her PC, due to System Failure.Activation would fail to Register,the product.
That would render a Users powerless, in no control: "ITS LIKE GET IT WHILE U CAN THING".

Now this is a shame,

I was looking forward to tesing this software but I have Vista 64 Bit. I am also a bit put off that Version 2 is being offered when a newer version is already available and on the market. What is the point of testing out of date old version of a software if it has already been replaced?

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate all that GOTD does but I enjoy testing the software and sending feedback to the company and by giving an old version makes this seem trivial.

Yes, some of you testers my digg on me and please stop complaining it is free, well it is not. GOTD actually pays for this and the testers often test software they don't need just for the sheer enjoyment and learning experience so it takes up their valuable time. There is nothing free about it.

Thanks anyway - I shall wait to see what is happening tomorrow.

This program refused to install,could not access activation code. What I did get, is one really corrupted PC, which I've spent 3 hours putting right. I can do without this useless waste of time. This might be a half decent prog', but I'll never try installing it again.

OLD software (version 2) offered when version 3 is what is currently available. And the newer version 3 costs LESS than the older version were it to be bought, according to the blurb above and their web page at least. Still, free IS free. Activation for a year bothers me. It seems to me activation for a year is only marginally better than a 15 day trial.

The blurb above says:=> "System Requirements: Windows 98, Me, NT4, 2000, XP (32 bit only) and VISTA (32 bit only)"

Yet the activation page/key says: "Compatible with Windows XP and Vista (32 bit only)."

SO, which IS it? I still have a laptop running Windows 98se (I can't afford the cost to upgrade on a questionable platform. I happen to LIKE my trusty old portable though.) I would be interested if it really DID work for my older operating system machines as advertised in the blurb even though an outdated version 2.

In summary: Thanks, but no thanks. I think I can find other tools which do the same which DO work as far as my older systems are concerned.

Whoops! I ALMOST started to download this to try it out, "just to see" if it'd be worth getting the new commercial version, BUT since I read the comments first most of the time, like today, I saw #20, from "Happy_Person", re: "It won't work on a 64-bit system", so I'm "left out in the cold" with this one, too...

I KNOW I've seen other comments about this issue: "Please tell us if it'll work on x64-systems BEFORE we completely mess up our machines trying to install it", and so forth, and I'm in agreement;

There are enough x64 systems out there now to where this is no longer a "geeks can fend for themselves"-type of question; Many people buy a new machine for other features or reasons, and it turns out that it's not only a 64-bit compatible piece of hardware, but that since it IS, a 64-bit "multi-Kernel" OS was pre-installed on it as well;

For those with enough disk space:
If you already have, or can make, a "clean partition", you can install any other OS you want into it, like Vista or XP "x86" (32-bit) versions, or Linux, etc., etc., & make the machine "multi-boot".

Oh well; At least I already have a couple of good "all around", "idiot-resistant" system cleaner-optimizers, like the always-available from the link on this site "Advanced SystemCARE" program, which is always, (that is, it's there every day), listed right under the "Download Button" for the offering of the day;

While ASC may not be perfect, it defaults to making a System Restore Point as it's very first action, even before it puts a menu on the screen, (you can turn that off if you want, along with many other options), and many of its options are really useful, & there ARE warnings about anything that may be "misinterpreted" & can do more harm than good.

Although on the "flip-side", many of the "Menu Options" aren't IN the program itself; they're supposed to 'link' to other "stand-alone" programs on the same machine, (which has been very "hit or miss" for me); Some link & some don't,
BUT, since you CAN get those "options" mostly for free anyway, (I found all but two or three, and I wasn't looking THAT hard), and they can all be run from the Start Menu, then it's still downright good, (especially for those who haven't memorized their system's SDK/DDK & OS Manuals; that is, the 99% of Windows users in the world).


But really, GAOTD, this IS such a great site, yet one of the most important things that more & more people NEED to know, seems to be the ONE thing that's NOT in the "System Requirements" or the "Program Features" lists, and that is:
"Runs on 32- or 64-bit systems", OR "Doesn't run on 64-bit systems at this time", (like one sometime last week said); and "Hats Off" to the developers who had made that very clear from the start! That's the way it SHOULD be!

It not only saves frustration of the Users who have x64 systems, but it also keeps any "download counts" more realistic, as well as for programs that will at least start to "unwrap", and so "go to the Internet to get the Wrapper Key",
Whether they actually install but can't run properly, or if they won't install at all, at least GAOTD doesn't have to pay for a license that will never be used!

And it also means that there is more bandwidth for others, as well as more server availability for others, who CAN download & USE the program.

I, for one, still appreciate the efforts of the GAOTD folks, and so say "Thanks anyway, I'll try again tomorrow or whenever",

...and a "Special Thanks" to Happy_Person, who seems to be one of the only other people who routinely mentions the "little detail" of "installs & runs on Vista Home Prem. SP2 x64", when posting their comment about what their experience & opinions of the program offering of that day ARE.

Just my $20 worth...

@#24: Mike, do you HAVE TO SHOUT ALL THE TIME? It completely detracts from what you (not U, I loathe that abbreviation!) are trying to say and makes your comments near-unreadable.

The shouting—and your lazy use of 'U' instead of 'you'—gives the rest of us the impression that you are aged about twelve, which since you claim to have customers, probably isn't the case (or is it?!).

Any chance of you calming down anytime soon? I'm sure we'd all appreciate it (MY eyeballs would, for a start), and it would make your comments look less … well … maniacal!

Thanks in advance, Mike (I'm sure you can do it!)—and apologies to GOTD for this off-topic post.

Thought will try trial version of V3 once. Installed and started a disk cleanup, My desktop icons are missing now:-( tried to stop it, but it doesnt seem to stop and continues to clean. waiting for last 15 minutes for it to stop. Looks like it has created some restore point(thats what it tells in the message). I do feel that performance of my PC has improved:-), but will restore my pc if desktop icons are not back after the clean up stops.

Okay, I finally managed to get the registration email by using a different email address; apparently they're real picky about what domain you're using.

Note that they're apparently only collecting email addresses for spamming purposes, as they're giving everyone the same registration key anyway. The email you get just sends you to this page.

(I assume that page will be removed after today, so there should be no harm in posting the URL here.)

Oh yeah. On their website Advanced System Optimizer is usually priced at $39.95 but is currently marked down to $29.95. So, #6, I don't think a complaint is in order on that count. But thanks for the 1-year warning. I'd like to know if that purchases only a 1-year license or if it is only the GOTD version that is so limited.

As these things go, it looks pretty nice, and as Ashraf said, "many, many, many features".

No 64-bit support? 64-bit is here and it is here to stay. I heard that the next Windows release(after 7) won't have a 32-bit version offered. It will be gone, just like when they went from 16 to 32 bit. I would like to try this program, but seeing how I am using Windows 7 64-bit, I can't.

One year license. OK. If that's what it is, that's what it is. BUT "What It Is" should be listed right up there with the list of Key Features where everyone can see it BEFORE they download and install. Don't ya think?

Umm, are you really going to want to use this program a year from now? You don't think it's possible that something better might come out in a year, or that perhaps the authors might release another free year?

Just something to consider if you're worried about it not being "free."
