I've used a few of their products in the past, including earlier versions of this one. You have to be extra careful when using it or they'll sneak a download of one or more of their other products as part of the "fix" it says you need. As long as you're aware of this and carefully look at all of the proposed fixes BEFORE you click on OK, you'll be able to skip the ones you don't want, but it's very easy to miss some and you'll end up with more of their products installed and wonder where the hell they came from. Personally, I think this method of pushing their other products on people is really slimey, so user beware if you install this software.

I've been using ASC PRO for many years with no negative side effects. I do recommend disabling Registry Clean and Registry Defrag as those are not only not necessary but can also do unwanted damage regardless of the program your using to do it. Can you accomplish what ASC PRO does by simply bringing up a few features built into Windows and individually running them yourself? Yes. However, ASC PRO makes it much easier to do and offers a few more features to help you along as well. For the naysayers out there, pffft! Whatever. Y'all complain about everything, you must be a blast at parties.

If the Windows Maintenance Center says that the "Current Status" of the disks / patitions are OK (0% fragmented), then I believe Windows, rather than IObit or another cleanup program.

Arnold, just be aware that different software developers calculate fragmentation differently. The aftermarket software typically has more advanced features than the stripped-down version shipping with Windows. If you don't want to tinker, yeah, skip such software. Those users wanting more control will appreciate this freebie.

IOBit programs work well. I have used several of them in the past. In reply to Peter's comment, A PC is not just an appliance, like a toaster or refrigerator. They are created with different parts from many different sources, and the parts and software, such as drivers and Operating systems don't always play well together. A company cannot test all possible combinations of software and add on peripherals with their products. It's impossible. And there are some things, such as defragging that Microsoft doesn't do well. Individual companies who build computers don't oversee their utilities, more than a specifications test when they buy contracts to use the utilities. They may not play well together, and I had a big problem with a driver that was recommended and installed by a company that makes good products. This one just didn't play well with my PC. In short, Nothing is perfect, don't expect anything to be, and research more than what a salesperson or advertisement tells you. :)

Rick Siegert, You're actually incorrect on defragging. MS does it just as well as many others with the bonus that you do not even need to manually run it as it will do so automatically when it's needed.

This product has come under scrutiny for stealing malwarebytes update versions (now their program doesn't deliver good security), scamming people out of their money, breaking down their computer (due to installing incompatible drivers) among other things. It would be unwise for a person who doesn't know much about computers to install it and let it run unsupervised. Especially on a custom PC.

Reply   |   Comment by Artex  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Artex, You are certainly entitled to your opinion, as is everyone. Who was it who said that everyone has one? Will Rogers? Every program needs some supervision, of course, but you should give some examples that we can respond to, rather than just accusations. Let's see some actual evidence, if you please. A blog isn't evidence, unless it cites specific references. Please put your money where your mouth is by showing links to evidence. Otherwise, I'm going to have to categorize you as a "sidewalk superintendant" i.e. someone who just reads something and believes it without proof.

Reply   |   Comment by Rick Siegert  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

Rick Siegert, so from everything i said one thing you seem to disagree is the breaking down of their computer and "every program needs supervision". Got it.

You can easily type into Google and find forums and posts made by users and companies, such as Malwarebytes where they exposed IObit for THEFT of intellectual property. IObit had the audacity to give a very unconvincing rebuttal. That's one red flag

Separately And after the industries recent change to the definition of PUP (by Malwarebytes, Avast, Mcafee and a few others), IObit has since been labeled as PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) by quite a bit of reputable anti-virus. One of the mods stated "The biggest change is this criteria we use: "predominantly negative feedback or ratings from the user community" when asked about IObit. Another red flag

There are many counts of people claiming they have been scammed warranting quite mediocre reputation. Many ex-users of IObit claimed that it was a scareware, showing an exceedingly high number of issues with the PC that needs to be fixed most of them were not issues. Which supports what was stated previously.

As for the breaking down of MY computer through incompatible driver updates, well that's a personal experience. So I guess you ignore that and risk your PC if you want.

Many tech enthusiasts as well as tech articles DO NOT recommend PC optimizers for mirade of reasons. Maybe educating yourself on that topic would help as well. :)

Remember don't be scared to search it up yourself. You have the whole web at your fingertips after all. NOTE: If what i have provided isn't enough feel free to search it yourself and draw your own conclusions.

My Conclusion: There is no point in having a "cleaner" app as it generally does not fix/properly clean the device and may cause more issues for the user.

here are some sources (I don't reference blogs just tech articles and threads from security tech websites going in depth).

Rick Siegert, Oh and what i said about defraggers wasn't an opinion. It was merely a known fact in the tech industry. Maybe thats something you want to look into as well

Reply   |   Comment by Artex  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Artex, I see that your only response is about defraggers. Again, you state it as a "known" fact without giving references. I did do research on it, around ten years ago, maybe less. and have had discussions since then. Having retired from the "tech industry", I trust my understanding of how the hardware actually works, which I first started learning about 35 years ago, and have kept up my studies since. And I trust my sources as well. Thank you.

Reply   |   Comment by Rick Siegert  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Artex, Thank you for actually giving some references to your claims. The Bleeping Computer claim of malware looks to be valid. It is from 2014, and downloaded from CNET though. This has not been the only company or download site to have a malware problem. When notified, they pretty much clean up the problem, and users who download any software need to run anti-virus and rootkit software to find and fix problems. I'm glad that you finally put out information in other links, such as Softpedia's 2009 information and reference to an interview.

Reply   |   Comment by Rick Siegert  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Rick Siegert, I linked to that as well XD the fact that you havent check them is surprising. Well feel free to also show your sources since they are so high level. You may be keeping up on the hardware side but on the software side you seem to be completely ignorant. You have yet to repudiate any of the claims I have made.

Reply   |   Comment by Artex  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Rick Siegert, Thanks, unlike you I actually share my info. Well you havent said anything other than listing everything as an opinion when you don't know about it. It is very apparent you know zilch when it come to the software side of tech.
You can ask any independant tech organization, or MS, Apple, Google, whomever nearly all will say you don't need a defragger or cleaner other than the one that came with the OS.

So my conclusion since you havent repudiated anything is that you actually agree with me with ASC being a scareware, IObit's shady past that should not be overlooked, among other things. Yet just want to put the front up of defense.

Reply   |   Comment by Artex  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Artex, I didn't attack any software, so I didn't feel the need to reply. Many software products have had malware attached in the past, but they all fixed their problems, and their delivery sites developed better security. Interviews with a company president about their problems with another company isn't enough evidence for a court, or objective readers. Legal documents tend to be regarded as evidence. Tests and comparisons that can be duplicated also tend to be regarded as evidence. Word of mouth and opinions, not so much. I do have 30 years of software development background from programmer to project lead, including PC to mainframe communications, starting with MS-DOS6. So, read your blogs and articles, make your judgements, and go your way. I won't reply again. there is no need.

Free or Pro nags, just run off the nags, using free Microsoft SysInternals AutoRuns, MSConfig, Services, Schedule, and so on.

And there are tons of other nag managers, including within the Toolbox of Advanced System Care itself.

From the screenshots above -

"Turbo Boost: Stop unnecessary apps/service to release RAM and boost your PC."
Is the the user advised and given a choice of which apps/services would be stopped? or does the program decide on its own - maybe turning off something on which I depend?

"Deep Optimization: 30 items can be optimized to speed up your system."
Again, would I be given a choice?

Gee, I am always looking for ways - on my own - to stop high CPU usage when I see it running rampant, and I don't know why. However, I can see how serious problems could result from trusting all to an application without any input from me.

Can anyone answer my questions?

Reply   |   Comment by kalmly  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+17)

kalmly,

YOU can configure Turbo Boost to stop those apps/services that YOU deem unnecessary. You can also set Turbo Boost to start automatically or set it so that you turn it on/off manually.

Under Deep Optimization, you control the program. When ASC is actually running, if you hover the mouse over the "optimized" link, you can then click on the "Details" link. You can then revert or restore each optimized app/service to its original config. Hope this helps.

kalmly,

Perform a disk/partition image backup that you can restore, try Advanced SystemCare Pro, and if it helps, keep it, if not, restore that backup. Today I think most comments so far are positive -- other days this or similar is offered, they might trend negative... it seems a roughly 50/50 split, with some folks complaining about disasters & others claiming big benefits.

"Gee, I am always looking for ways - on my own - to stop high CPU usage when I see it running rampant, and I don't know why."

Particularly with win10, when you look at Task Mgr. there are a lot of Windows processes running, some more necessary than others. In win10 at least they do seem to calm down after the first several minutes of running -- even on the slowest devices [Intel Atom CPUs] CPU % drops to 3 or 4 [or less]. You can click on the column headers in Task Mgr. so the highest consumer of whatever resource is at the top. If you're always close to 100% RAM use, if there's one process mainly to blame, track it down & hopefully eliminate it -- if there's high RAM usage but no single culprit, freeing RAM, e.g. with Turbo Boost might help -- if there's plenty of RAM available, it isn't a problem. CPU usage is slightly harder, because the slower the CPU, the higher the % used for any given task &/or app -- IOW some devices will often show what seems to be high CPU use just running common stuff like a web browser. That said, if you have a single process consuming most of the CPU, it should be something obvious, like you've got an app encoding video or Windows is installing updates. If it's not obvious, track it down -- you could for example be infected with mining malware.

Program works well on my Pro-Book 4530s, with Win7 Professional installed, driver update, installed updated drivers without event, registry cleaner worked very well, seems like a keeper. ! I did not test any of the internet protection features because using Malwarebytes Windows Firewall Controller and virus programs.. Overall so far A+

Top-notch program. I've used ASC for years and have never been disappointed. When I worked DSL tech support for AT&T, I'd use it on customers' PCs to fix a lot of their issues and they thought I was some sort of computer guru.

I am sure I dont need any of this.
My PC has an 8th gen i3 and runs Windows 10 build 1903. It has 4GB RAM which is all it really needs. The 256GB M.2 SSD is fully optimised by Intel software.
Pass!

Reply   |   Comment by Pierre  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-3)

peter, A: With today's programs and such, 4gb ram is pale, so it could use more. B: Hardware does a machine's work, software makes that hardware work. If that software gums up the works, how is the hardware suppose to fix it?? It can't.
Picture it as your computer is a drain pipe. Pour all kinds of grease and gook (software) into that drain and over time it clogs up. Get a good drain cleaner poured in every now and then (be it ASC, Wise Care, Glary Utilities, CCleaner) and it helps the drain run free.

"My PC has an 8th gen i3 and runs Windows 10 build 1903. It has 4GB RAM which is all it really needs. The 256GB M.2 SSD is fully optimised by Intel software."

Just FWIW, with that i3 you need all the help you can get, particularly if it's a mobile CPU. Windows Task Mgr. will confirm [or not] whether the 4 GB RAM is sufficient -- it may be depending on how you use the device. AFAIK there is no optimization for SSDs -- Windows will run Trim but that's about it. Far as speed goes, that depends on the make & model of SSD, as well as the interface your device supports.

"Get a good drain cleaner poured in every now and then (be it ASC, Wise Care, Glary Utilities, CCleaner) and it helps the drain run free."

While this fall's update will be an exception -- more of a service pack really -- win10's version upgrades every 6 months clear an awful lot of that garbage out. Not going to say running one or more of those apps won't help, but it's much less of a problem than say a 5+ year old win7 install.

DJ, Windows has a built-in cleaner and defragger that automatically runs and cleans your pc which is more than enough. Many tech savvy people in fact do not recommend users to get a 3rd party cleaner.

Reply   |   Comment by Artex  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Artex, No it does not have a built in cleaner that "automatically runs"..the only thing, that you manually have to run, is Disc Cleanup, and all that does is get rid of junk files.
Many "tech savy" people do recommend a good cleaning every now and then be it pro or owner. The only thing we do not recommend is delving too deep into the registry..if at all. The same goes for defragging. Windows does not do it automatically, and some 3rd party apps are recommended, even by Microsoft.
