Advanced SystemCare Review from iSkylight
Pros: Does everything that it is supposed to do. I actually don’t even bother with CCleaner anymore at all. CCleaner is an awesome tool, but ASC does everything and more.
Does NOT use up lots of system memory, and cleans to the fullest.
Cons: I will say that I do not recommend purchasing the PRO version of ASC unless you feel as though you really need it. I have it now, and there’s really not THAT big of a difference. I think only 2 options or so were unlocked. Turbo boost is unnecessary.
Summary: Okay, so I see all of these people complaining about how ASC crashed their system and all of this BS… That’s like blaming Glary Utilities for deleting shortcuts and registry entries, when YOU’RE the one who hit the OK button. Just because an option is there doesn’t mean you should use it, unless you know what you are doing.
Hit the “Care!” button. That’s all you have to do…
The biggest thing I see is people removing items found in the Security Analyzer’s Hijacked Settings.
Allow me to quote the text below the list of displayed items:
“Please note the items listed here are not all problems or malware. They are critical settings of your system and common targets of malware. Before you remove any item, make sure it is malware.”
People see X number of “suggestions” and they go on a removing frenzy.
Now, there may have been some bug that caused some people to crash, but I’ve yet to see it. Oh, and I use ASC every day. Interesting. o.o;
An idiot with the best tools is still an idiot.
Oh, and for people who say that ASC slows down their system, I’ve got a screenshot link below that shows my CPU usage during an ASC cleaning, as well as having Google Chrome and such open at the same time.
For those of you who can’t read, that’s only 8% CPU usage for my entire PC.
Okay, and here’s another picture of my CPU usage with ASC, AS WELL AS a video game of high graphics quality [Alliance of Valiant Arms] running at the same time!
Again, for those who can’t read…
My game and its linked programs [Such as anti-hack shields etc.]
~ 697,952 K.
~ 21,524 K.
Total CPU usage WITH all this going on
So, unless someone wants to come forward and show exactly how IObit or CNET is to blame for their computer’s problems… by all means, come forth with some evidence.
Oh, and LOL…
For posting rules, I can’t specify to whom I am speaking, but someone is talking mad trash about this program and IObit themselves. This is for you and anybody who considers listening to you:
Toolbar and software bundling is SUPER COMMON in these types of programs. Even CCleaner prompts you for the Yahoo! toolbar, does it not?
Also, I use the free version and have access to all the features you need to begin with… What’s your point? Another thing, you laugh at IObit’s claim that they can’t fully protect a person’s computer… will you please provide us with an anti-virus alternative that has =never= failed to protect a user? Perhaps you are unaware, but hackers are always one step ahead, as they design the viruses and software companies react. They take preventative measures, but such things are NEVER foolproof. Many games, for example, have anti-hack shields… are they always 100% successful? No!
Oh, and another thing about saying that IObit’s Security 360 saying you had no anti-virus when you have Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware… Even Windows 7 claims Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware isn’t an anti-virus, because why? Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware IS NOT ANTI-VIRUS. It’s Anti-MALWARE.
Link posted below explains, on CNET forums no less, the difference between the two.
If anybody would like to correct my review, or thumbs down my review, please do so with proper proof, rather than he-said-she-said.
My computer is a decent machine, mind you, so older machines may have more of a problem running it… however, older machines have more of a problem running everything, so that’s really no surprise, now is it?
On a final note, it’s a great program. Try it for yourself and see why www.CNET.com has ASC still ranked #1 in Diagnostic Software, even with all of these baseless complaints.
