There are several possible causes for unusually low computer performance, registry issues being the most common of them. Advanced SystemCare is a system optimizer that will help you fix those issues as well as tweak some other options.

The interface has a nice design and it even comes with several skins. The splash screen will give you direct access to the required group of features. The first of these groups is Quick Care, a one-click solution to daily computer maintenance. The second group, called Deep Care, offers complete maintenance and tune-up for your PC by means of removing malware, fixing registry entries, defragmenting the registry, optimizing the system, fixing invalid shortcuts, cleaning junk files and privacy items, defragmenting disks, fixing disk errors and fixing vulnerabilities.

One of the program's advantages is derived from the way the registry scan results are presented: the report is detailed enough for you to check if you really want to apply each change without it causing any additional problems. There is also a toolbox containing lots of other utilities. Some of these deserve a special mention here as the Security Holes Scanner, which will check for unfixed security holes as well as download and install the corresponding patches from Microsoft servers. There is also Driver Manager, which will update, back up or restore your system drivers. Another interesting feature is Disk Explorer, which will show you an overview of disk usage.

As a whole, Advanced SystemCare is a well-designed application. Despite the criticism voiced by some users, it ranks among the most popular optimizers, which is a good sign on a market overcrowded with similar applications. It cannot be denied that it includes lots of useful tools; and whether they are really effective or not, only time and constant use will tell. I do think Advanced SystemCare deserves at least the chance to prove its worth. However, if you do not want to take the risk, there are some other more popular and reliable applications offering similar features.
