Update: This promotion has now ended.
As promised earlier this week , dotTech is teaming up with GlarySoft  to bring everyone Glary Utilities Pro  for free! For those that don’t know, Glary Utilities is a jack-of-all-trades software that can do all of the following (as per the developer):
Glary Utilities comes in two flavors: Glary Utilities Free  and Glary Utilities Pro. The main differences between the two flavors as per the developer are that Glary Utilities Pro comes with:
- Automatic care in background
- Enhanced system fixing, optimizing and more
- Free 24×7 Technical Support
- Consent for commercial use Attention: This specific promotion  entitles usage of Glary Utilities Pro for non-commercial use only.
So, as the title of this post says, dotTechies have the chance to get Glary Utilities Pro for free! This promotion will be open for 24 hours only – from 00:00 – 24:00 PST (Pacific Standard Time, or GMT -7) on May 12, 2010 – and everyone will receive 1 year of free updates. Note that you will only be able to grab a free license key within the 24 hour time frame, but you can use the key you get to install Glary Utilities Pro at a later date, if you wish.
Update: There was a communication problem between me and GlarySoft. We both agreed upon running the giveaway for 24 hours on May 12, 2010, but they live in China so they probably setup the giveaway for 24 hours Chinese time where as I ran the giveaway PST time (hence the giveaway “ended early”). GlarySoft and dotTech recognize this problem and apologize for it (see comment #86  for an official apology from GlarySoft). The giveaway is now open again and this giveaway has been extended by 6 hours and will now last until 06:00 PST May 13, 2010.
Anyone that has any problems or issues can e-mail GlarySoft at support [at] glarysoft.com before 0600 PST May 13, 2010 and they will be e-mailed a license. Also, any complaints can go to support [at] glarysoft.com.
