IObit Advanced SystemCare is a powerful optimization suite for Windows, and with the latest release come new and interesting utilities.
More than 25 utilities to optimize your PC
IObit Advanced SystemCare Free allows you to clean, maintain, and improve your PC's performance.
Those interested will find the Toolbox useful, which provides access to a wide range of utilities divided by category (Clean, Repair & Security, System Optimize and Clean System), allowing you to maintain parts of the system with a fair amount of advanced control.
Among other things, you can defragment and optimize the hard disk, manage drivers and processes, change the settings of the OS, irreversibly destroy files, run the defrag in the registry, and find problems and vulnerabilities that can compromise the security of your PC.
Useful for most geeks is the Performance Monitor of IObit Advanced SystemCare Free widget, which shows the percentage of CPU usage, RAM, hard disk and network traffic, and includes tools to free up RAM memory and capture screenshots.
The Rescue Center lets you create and manage system restore points, while Turbo Boost is a feature that can speed up Windows by disabling processes and services unnecessary for specific functions.
The antivirus module, without advanced features, will protect your PC from network dangers and uses the engine of IObit Malware Fighter to intercept malware.
IObit Advanced SystemCare Free includes other utilities, such as the Program Deactivator, which disables unnecessary processes in the background, HomePage Protection, which prevents unauthorized modification of the homepage and the search engine of your browser, and ManageMyMobile, which helps you clean, manage processes, and remove malware from your Android smartphone (requires installation of Advanced MobileCare). ManageMyMobile also retrieves information about your device, lets you capture screenshots in real time, and is capable of displaying photos, music, videos, contacts and applications on your device.
Inside the suite, you'll find two other well-known software: IObit Drive Booster, which keeps the driver constantly updated to the latest version, and IObit Uninstaller, an advanced tool to uninstall software and browser plugins.
Finally, the latest version of IObit Advanced System Care includes, among other things, a startup manager with a 1-click optimization feature to automatically speed up the system boot, and Default Program, which allows you to set the default software for each category (browser, audio player, video player, photo viewer, PDF reader and manager of compressed archives). Another new feature worth mentioning is a Plugin/Toolbar Cleaner that protects against potentially harmful results of some plugins.
Everything at your fingertips
IObit Advanced SystemCare Free has a cleaner, more streamlined look than previous editions. The suite is very usable and the home screen gives you quick access to all sections of the product: Care, Protect, Toolbox, Turbo Boost, and Action Center.
The design is simple and elegant, and can be modified to suite your tastes by the use of skins. There are five available by default in the suite. In addition, you can change the background with an image uploaded from your PC.
