Fast, powerfully and incredibly effective Disk Defrag function to defragment hard drives – up to 10 times faster than other defragmentation tools.
IObit Advanced SystemCare PRO is yet another  great system tune-up utility. Although I don’t personally use it anymore (I realized I have no need for it), I used to use it and loved it. Seeing as Advanced SystemCare PRO 5 is the paid edition of the latest version of Advanced SystemCare, I recommend it, whole heartily.
That said, as I mentioned in the post on System Mechanic , I recommend people with new machines to not use tune-up utilities (until you feel your computer is “slowing down” after long time use) simply because the risk of malfunction – and no mater how good, every third-party tune-up utility has some chance of causing problems – is not worth the reward of little to no benefit. On the other hand, people with older machines – ones in use for more than a year or so – can typically benefit from allowing tune-up utilities to clean out the junk they have accumulated in their computers.]
