Advanced SystemCare from IObit offers robust performance-enhancing tools for Windows. The most recent iteration of the software comes with utilities that are new and highly useful. There are more than 25 total functions in this software that will help your PC run as smoothly as possible.

The Toolbox is possibly the most useful part of Advanced SystemCare. It holds numerous utilities that are organized by category, which include Clean System, System Optimize, Repair & Security, and Clean.

With this software, you can optimize your hard disk drive and defragment it for improved storage and general function. You can also alter the operating system settings, manage drivers, permanently destroy files, search for issues or holes in your security, and defragment the system registry.

The software comes with a free widget that monitors performance and conveys information directly to the user. The widget shows network traffic, hard disk usage, CPU usage, and RAM usage. You can also use the widget to take screenshots and release RAM that could benefit the system.

You can set and manage points where the system will restore in the event of an accident through the Rescue Center, and the Turbo Boost feature optimizes Windows for speed by limiting processing power for unnecessary or extraneous functions.

A built-in antivirus module is included in the software, but it doesn't come with any powerful features. However, it will offer protection against malware and other dangers from the internet thanks to the IObit Malware Fighter.

There are other interesting utilities in Advanced SystemCare. For instance, the Program Deactivator searches for processes running in the background and shuts them down. You'll also get the benefit of HomePage Protection. This feature stops your homepage from being modified without your consent.

Advanced SystemCare also includes two pieces of bundled software, which are IObit Uninstaller and IObit Drive Booster. The uninstaller removes unnecessary software and plugins, and the booster works to keep the app driver up to date at all times.

The most recent version of the software comes with the Default Program function, which gives you the freedom to choose which piece of software you want to be the default player for a specific type of media. For instance, you can select Chrome as your default web browser and iTunes as your default audio player. It also comes with a startup manager tool. This tool includes a feature that allows you to optimize your system boot process with a single click.

The new Plugin/Toolbar Cleaner is a nifty little tool that offers protection against plugins that might harm your system. The software has been optimized itself for easier, more intuitive utility. From the app home screen, you can quickly reach the main product sections. There are five skins to choose from by default, and you download more if you wish.

Advanced SystemCare is a free, one-in-all system optimizer for PC users of all types. IObit Information Technology keeps Advanced SystemCare updated frequently to ensure users get the best performance tweaking and security maintenance available. Windows XP to Windows 8 supports Advanced SystemCare.

Users are given multiple options to optimize PC performance, such as defragmenting the registry and hard drive, fixing and deleting useless registry keys and deleting junk files. Advanced SystemCare stands out from the rest by offering several PC security options. Users can scan their computers for exploits and patch them as well as remove any spyware or malicious software that has been detected.

The GUI might be confusing to some at first, but it doesn't take much time to get used to. There are four tabs labeled Care, Toolbox, Turbo Boost and Action Center. From each tab, you can perform a variety of both performance and security tasks such as scanning & diagnosing malicious software and performing system maintenance.

Some utilities can be found in Windows by default, but Advanced SystemCare offers a whole suite of utilities that even Windows 8 doesn't include. The set of tools available are more than enough for home personal computer maintenance and take only minutes to do the job. It doesn't hog any hard drive space, sizing up to about only 1 MB.

Advanced SystemCare takes frequent backups of your system just in case anything goes wrong during the system optimization process. Whether you're a casual PC user or a tech-savvy power user, you will find something to like in Advanced SystemCare.
