Welcome to PC Tech for Hire, Montgomery Alabama's premier residential and small business computer repair and service provider.
Thanks to Cadishead Computers for the use of this series of articles.
Next on our list of the top 20 programs, is Advanced SystemCare.
First, note the number of Free Download buttons shown above. I see 3. More on this later in the series.
OK, so I have decided I want to download Advanced SystemCare. Now which download link do I choose?
Do I choose this one?
Well clicking on this link, brings up this page.
Hang on. This isn’t Advanced SystemCare. It’s a PC fixer program, and my machine does need looking at. I’ll download it and see.
Well after waiting for at least 5 minutes, K9-PCFixer failed to download. So it looks like I may have to find another way of fixing my computer.
Back to Advanced SystemCare
This part is fine. Click next, and up comes
Install Iobit Malware Fighter. Which claims to be “The World’s leading Anti-Malware tool”.
Lets see about that shall we..
Click next, and Advanced SystemCare gets installed.
So Advanced SystemCare is now installed, and we allow it to run.
We have clicked Scan, and let it run through all the ‘repairs’
Ok. Our PC is clean! Woo Hoo.. Or is it?
Dear readers, what are your thoughts?
So we click on activate.
So they ‘Promise’ to speed up the PC by up to 200%
Boost my internet speed by up to 300%
Clean and do a deeper optimization of the computers registry. (Remember our previous warnings?)
Finally do a real time active protection and Optimization of the computer.
Sounds good yes?
Oh.. how nice, they are offering me Advanced SystemCare Professional, Smart Defrag Pro, IOBit Uninstaller Pro, and AMC security Pro for only $19.99.
Well with my IT technical head on here.
Their promises are nothing short of ‘Rubbish’ for lack of a better expression.
200% faster computer? – Impossible by the way they claim to be able to do.
300% faster internet speed? – Impossible. Only a call to your Internet Service Provider (ISP), can speed your internet speed up. That’s if they can.
Deeper clean and registry optimisation – I wouldn’t let them near my registry with the proverbial 10 foot barge pole.
Read http://betanews.com/2012/10/24/iobit-advanced-systemcare-6-pro-review/ for a independant review between the pro and free version of advanced system care.
In IOBit’s own forums – this is what they claim is the difference between smart defrag pro and the free version.
Smart Defrag Pro and Smart Defrag v2.8 are not the same, pro has a couple of more options such as defragmenting fragmented registry in the boot time and another defragmentation algorithm as fast smart defrag.
We could not find any differences between the IObit Uninstaller PRO and the usual edition.
AMC Security Pro – This is designed for Mobile Phones. We cannot comment on this program, as we did not download or use it.
