Cleans junk files, repairs broken registries and links, optimizes the Internet settings and modifies the startup list. Monitors the CPU, RAM, and disk usage.

Version after version and feature by feature, Advanced SystemCare hasn’t stopped improving itself. This all-in-one free PC optimizer never disappoints, and it always comes packed up with all you usually need to clean, optimize, speed up, and protect your PC and laptop. As if all of that wasn’t enough, it gives you direct access to a box full of extra tools to optimize, repair, clean, and protect your computer, as well as to other IOibt products.

Though you can’t consider version 11 as a major revamp, it follows IObit’s tradition of improving those features that offered some room for improvement and of carefully adding a select choice of new features that add up to the whole product. Thus, Advanced SystemCare has largely improved its clever monitoring options and its optimization of your computer’s resources to enhance the overall performance. Besides, this new version includes a security-related feature that fixes all your system weaknesses with just one click, a more precise way of locating and freeing up disk space, and an efficient detector of any real-time attempt to hijack your browser. Everything else that made us love this optimization tool is still there – its fast and thorough scan still detects whatever startup items, privacy traces, junk files, invalid shortcuts, registry entries, and spyware threats may compromise your system’s performance and your own security and privacy. The scan provides comprehensive reports on the number of items found and their exact location, as well as the possibility of getting rid of them all with just one click.

The Speed Up options are also there – the Turbo Boost that stops unnecessary apps to give an extra push to your PC, the hardware accelerator that detects any outdated drivers, the App/Toolbar Cleaner that points out whatever plug-ins clutter your browsers, and the Deep Optimization feature, that performs an overall optimization task on all those components of your computer that are slowing down its performance.

In the protection area, the program offers you links to FaceID and a surfing protection and ad removal tool, while it protects your DNS and your homepage from hijacking. Though far from being its strongest area, this compact set of protection features is always a useful and welcome add-on to the extensive choice of cleaning and optimization tools. In this sense, it is fair to say that the program’s Toolbox maintains its accustomed high level – together with its new Undelete feature, you will find a Startup Manager, a Large File Finder, specific functionality to improve the performance of your Windows 10, a File Shredder, and the classic IObit showcase with the latest version of some of its products (Uninstaller and Driver Booster, among others).

Faithful to its tradition of using its free software tools as the best showcase for its other products, IObit always reserves some of the existing options for the Pro version of the program, which is – to me – both informative and annoying in equal parts. Thus, watch out for some features labeled as “Pro”, which you will be allowed to see but not touch without a license. On a completely different tone, note that some of the available extra tools you are offered to download and install are full programs in their own right, rather than features that will add to the existing Advanced SystemCare’s functionality.

IObit Advanced SystemCare keeps offering the same high level of quality of previous versions. It follows a steady path of development and improvement capable of enhancing your system’s performance, security, and speed each time faster and in a more convenient way than the version before.
