    Advanced System Care

    Can anyone give a review on Advanced System Care? I would also like to know whether it is worthwhile purchasing the paid version

    My own opinion is no.

    Most of the things it claims to do can be done with the built-in features and utilities in Windows.

    While I've used it in the past, I'm not a fan of tune up programs.

    I've come across a number of threads of people asking for help with their systems and found they have been using ASC and letting it clean their registry without disabling any of the features it will remove.

    I also found it intrusive with its constant pop ups saying the system needed cleaning when all it was, was a small build up of temp files.

    I think that was v.6.0.

    The only IObit program I use is their Uninstaller which can be downloaded separate but you have you uninstall ASC after as it gets bundled whether you uncheck the box or not.

    "Advanced System Care"???

    I have attended many customers who had installed ADC and subsequently had serious problems.

    It is not so-much that ADC itself is malware; rather it is a foot-in-the-door for other more malicious software to install (similar to "IncrediMail").
