Downloaded and installed no problem. Reg. was very easy. Started program. 16 hours later I was able to post this note. With out doing anything but starting the program, I found my entire system corrupted by this. I am normally very computer savvy, but the damage that this did was un-real. It destroyed my firewall, rendered my AV useless, utterly obliterated both my explorer and firefox, not to mention what it did to java and direct X. It took me 16 hours to get to the point where I could actually connect to the net and check e-mails. (did I mention that it fried outlook) I didn't run any of the moduals in the program. This all came about simply by STARTING the program. The only way I could recommend this is if you told me that you wanted a total re-install of your boot drive.

Installed on XP SP3. All went well. Did a scan, found a few things which I wanted to keep, so I did not select them. Found 32 (!) Windows updates/security patches which it said needed to be fixed.

Now, I have been having problems installing 7 updates, just will not install. I thought maybe this would do the trick. It downloaded and installed all patches, etc without problems. Strangely, after it was all done, Auto Update is still offering the same 7 updates, which still will not install. So it did not do much at all, so far as I can see. My PC is still running well, with no apparent problems. So, what does this program actually DO?

Demanding me to submit my email address so it can be inundated by more advertising....one thumbs down!

Any app associated with sites flagged by WOT as potentially dangerous or harmful...too big a thumbs down to even risk it

FYI WOT isn't a competitor's site. It's a community where users participate in rating sites & informing the community about sites with problems. Check it out for yourself!

I have used quite a few programs of this brand, and I've never met phishing or something when using them. I don't know why they say it's a phishing site. WOT sometimes works, but sometimes may mislead people.

I lost many programs due to this piece of work. I read the warnings, and the scan just said I needed to update some XP files. When I updated those and re-started, many programs were gone. I made a system restore point for extra security and even that didnt bring them back!! My advice, dont take the chance on this bogus program. Its not worth killing your system to try it. Boo GAOTD for bringing us this one.

@radar:

You're rating it based on the number of clicks? (-_-;)

If everyone did that, no company would be willing to do the Giveaway of the Day. Either that, or the companies would make software with zero clicks. It would automatically start up and run without your consent.

Either way, it's better to rate the software based on how good it is.

@ Mike Vaughan. I can't help thinking, you're telling a joke. Are you serious, when you recommend I0bit security 360 as safe protection ? Okay, it's off topic, but at least use another firewall than Windows and it's easy to find a regular AV program. But off course if you don't surf at the internet, I'm sure, you are well protected. Just be aware off, what ends up in yor mail-box :)

I think the developer/s should be congratulated . Not very often do you get a program you can use out of the box .This is one of the best programs offered via GOTD. It found security vulnerabilities in Microsoft that their updates had not fixed . It downloads these missing updates at the touch of a button and installs them .

You can always tell good software when it is so easy to use and figure out without needing to delve into a helpfile. This counts among them is a good program.

As far as start up programs and BHOs it finds , it only removes them if you tick each ones box. If you are not sure what the line is or obvious what it is with a family name in the line like AVG , then leave it alone.

Like all good progs , they should be used in conjunction with others.

This installed no problem, and says can you register the key code up to the 21st . Although it has a restore function, don't be an idiot and remove things without reading what you are removing first. If in doubt leave it alone or google the offending line it found.

Ok, I believe it is a good program (not downloaded yet), but sticking to CCleaner and Advanced System Care would be a better idea. You are sure of not loosing important data. Besides, does this program even make a backup of your memory before it cleans? Advanced System Care does, and for good reason, no worries.

Just to clarify one point on the GUI: The "Updating Now" button. It actually means "Update Now", not that it's updating. That confused me the first time around when I thought the program was updating but it was instead waiting.

@21: You can tell if it's registered or not by looking at the title bar and the About dialog. Some developers tend not to remove the Register button because they want registration details to be visible so to tell the user that the program is registered (sort of a paradox, no?).

It wouldn't let me click on the "+ See More" after I first registered it, but when I restarted the program, it seemed to work fine. Be careful if you are inexperienced because it does list some drivers as potential, though low, threats.

Hey! This thing found all the security updates I need! :D It's not half bad!

Not bad man, not bad at all! Though, it is missing a lot of features other programs have... I'll give it a 2.5/5. Though, a lot of the features are useless sometimes. Use this program once in a while, or when your computer is acting weird, scan your computer using this and see if any "toolbars" or "services" are killing your machine.

One of the good features however, is that it shows all details about a certain thing in your computer, hard to say, but go check it out! ;)

A complete dogs dinner if you ask me! It wanted to install 7 MS updates for Vista which were all not required for this instalation of Vista, many would only be relevant if the Vista machine was a member of a windows 2008 server domain and bears no relenece to stand-alone PC's or workgroup based PC's which the software could have noticed if it bothered to look at the machines settings. Another update describes a vulnerability that would only be present if the end user manually installed the windows feature themselves. A default windows vista machine would not have the problem feature enabled, so would not be at risk. Another was a problem with the Input Method Editor (IME) and IE8 and did not even check to see if IME was installed or enabled.

Installed on XP machine. Works great.
After Scan, Found 72 issues, when clicked Repair,
received a popup "Information on Windows update files cannot be obtained. Please check your internet connection and try again when connection is available.
Click ok and I am back to main screen. If Click help and click Update, It shows that I have the latest verion 1.5.2. So Please tell me how to make it run?

Thank You

Just be aware everyone Advanced Systems Care may cause an error to occur in windows logs...I always check the logs after software is installed on any windows and noticed this error to occur on Vista and Windows 7. The error in question is :Event ID 46 Volmgr which is related to ASC disabling the write event to system log. After removing ASC you have to re-enable this function to rid the error. My advice is to set a system restore point before you install any software and check the windows logs before and after install.

Installed fine. Ran fine. Found 28 MS updates that were missing. Installed them all without a problem.

The reason I was missing the 28 updates is that for some reason, MS updates hasn't worked properly on my system for as few years. In the past, I had to download each update indivdually and install one-by-one.

This program solved that problem for me.

Advanced SystemCare or Glary Utilities is the best and its FREE.
download I0bit security 360 which is another FREE product by the same company and together it will keep your computer clean and find the latest threats including dreaded Trojan horses and worms and has saved my computer many times which is more than I can say for AVG or even AVG9
This is the best product ever and it is FREE

It’s more often than not that a program hasn’t been thoroughly tested. Maintenance programs are developed on certain assumptions such as not being loaded down with bloatware and alternative maintenance programs. So when the application is “optimizing” it’s moving and removing files that may critical for the overall stability of the system or other programs (including the OS). Since no program can address every single little nuisance of a user’s PC, extra vigilance must be taken by a user when unleashing these types of programs on their unsuspecting PC.

@#13 bluper - Regarding your biased comment alluding to the quality of programs written by Chinese developers; can you say Vista?

Like others have said, watch repair and delete lists closely. I ran a scan and blindly clicked ok, and it completely disabled my entire internet security upon start up. For others who did the same thing as I have, this can easily be remedied by clicking restore on the Pc Health Check interface. I have been using Advanced System Care for quite some time, and can safely say that it is the better program of the two. GOTD typically offers Advanced System Care at least a couple times a year, it's worth the wait.

At first, I'm not sure is it a phishing site or "dangerous", but then I visited it on many pages and downloaded some programs, scanned them with Norton and anti-virus, nothing bad found. So I think it is safe to use.

Do not just listen to what other says, find out by yourself.
Eg: many anti-virus software claim that other competitors are viruses...

Very dangerous program in the hands of a novice. Even after 2 updates, the "Latest LIB version is only 1.09.915 [10/15/2009]". It wants you to install Windows Updates that do not apply or have been replaced by newer updates. It wants to remove components of AVG, Roxio, etc. - well known, safe programs. If you want a safe reliable program that will let you know if your software is up to date, try Secunia PSI at http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal/ - it doesn't try to do exactly the same as this program, but it is effective, accurate, and SAFE.

Quite useful to those who don't care about installing security updates and keep their system safe, this program does what it claims to do. This is not a speed booster, but rather a security status checker.

While I really don't understand why it insists that my properly registered copy of WinRAR dangerous with 5 stars risk level, USE YOUR COMMON SENSE and a bit of CASE, then you're good. Check everything before you press Repair, or you could just look at the problem, simply exit the program, and take care of the problem yourself.

To #9 this is not meant to speed up your computer like the other programs you mentioned.

It's main purpose is to download and install missing updates, and help remove unwanted programs.

If you just use the default settings it is safe to use, because only programs it knows to be unsafe are selected for removal. But, on the other hand if you choose to remove programs which are not selected by default you need to do this with care as it is easy to remove something that you need!

If in doubt just stick with what it selects, and you shouldn't have any problems.

To #11 the update function checks for updates to the definition files the program uses, it does not update the actual program itself. And in your case the definition files are old and need to be updated. These files are only updated every few months, which is why the latest definition files are from last year...

The problem with this is the interface. It is very easy to kill something that you didn't intend to kill. For example.

It found a leftover toolbar from a program that I had uninstalled. So I said, 'thanks, get rid of it'. Unfortunately, it also nuked several other things that it had apparently found which I had not noticed. Things that I didn't *want* nuked.

There are those who say never trust Chinese software. I didn't agree. Now I do.

To #6 those items are not selected by default because many of these should not be removed. If you don't change the selected items to clean then this is safe to use.

However these items are listed so an experience Windows user can check what is being run on their computer and quite possibly help in finding trojans or other malware that is being loaded at startup.

To #7 You mistakenly downloaded a different program - Advanced SystemCare. You need to click on "Download Wondershare PC Health Check now." Also, when you reboot you Windows will be back to normal, so don't worry!

To #5 I'd just let it install any updates found. It has in the past found updates for me not listen via Windows update, and they installed without causing problems.

I totally agree with terflip ! This " Speed Up " program, which I had as a freebee from a friend, completely messed up my system. You have to be very aware in most steps, if you choose to to grab the offer. I'll recommend WinUtilities Pro or offcourse AdvancedSystemCare - even the free version ! Anyway thanks for the offer.

To #2 this is nothing at like Advanced SystemCare or Glary Utilities.

This software checks for and fixes security vulnerabilities rather than cleaning your computer, and does a reasonable job of doing so.

Also, this is just a renamed version of WinMend System Doctor, and their registry cleaner which Wondershare are offering a discount on is actually WinASO Registry Optimizer, by X.M.Y International which is actually the same company as WinMend.

A free alternative to this is Secunia Inspector, which does a much more through scanning for software vulnerabilities. Also it can be run as an online scan (which will work with FireFox) or can be downloaded.

Here is the website for it: http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/online/


Also bear in mind that if you do decide to try Wondershare's registry cleaner, it does on occasion flag legitimate registry keys for deletion - so unless you are comfortable with verifying every single found error, do not use it or you will risk breaking either Windows or some of the software you use!

WARNING: Do not check the boxes for cleaning until you examine and make sure no programs are listed you want!!!!

PCHealth listed about all of my cleaners and firewall, anti-virus programs, Graphics card catalyst, and many more!

In the old days, I would have x'd the boxes and said will you gotta trust the software some time, that was after about 50 formats and clean re-installs.

My opinion of this software, very dangerous!
