Free 1 year license of Advanced SystemCare Pro!

As I am sure most of you know already, Advanced SystemCare Pro is a popular system optimization/management/cleaning/etc. tool from IObit. While IObit may have some questionable tactics for their Internet Security 360 software, Advanced SystemCare Pro itself is fairly good software, although somewhat a RAM hog sitting in the background all the time (last time I checked it uses ~40 MB RAM while idle in the background but I haven’t used Advanced SystemCare Pro for a long time, so this number may no longer be accurate). Of course IObit has run multiple Advanced SystemCare Pro promotions in the past year, so you may already have a free 1 year license. However, it doesn’t hurt to renew your license or to grab it now if you don’t have it yet. To get the free 1 year licenses of IObit Advanced SystemCare Pro follow these simple directions:

Version being given out for free: v3.6.1 Pro

Free updates: Yes, for one year

Supported OS: Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Win7

Download size: 7.5 MB

  • Check the e-mail address you registered with. There should be an e-mail from “” with the subject of “PC Authority Downloads – New Account”. In the e-mail there will be a confirmation link you need to click on to confirm your account:

  • Visit the registration page and enter your account information and hit “Submit”:

You will then be provided with registration details for 1 year free Advanced SystemCare Pro:

  • Install the program.
  • After installation has finished run Advanced SystemCare, and register it so it goes from Free version to Pro:





There will be a short four step wizard to follow after you click “OK” to setup the new features you unlocked by “upgrading” to Pro.

  • Enjoy!

If you have trouble getting Advanced SystemCare Pro for free, post below and I will try to help.

Thanks phoenix_rising!

See promotional information below for a unique offer }}. what gives? This is not once but now twice I have tried to do their give away in the last year to only get it is over…. Grrrr. I have been a paid member of Pc pitstop since 1999 and Love them but wanted to try iobit to see if it is really better. I guess I will just stick with PC PITSTOP…..

    I have tried register at both sites in the past 1 1/2 hours.  Both seemed to accept my info, but neither sent me an email.  How long should I wait?

  • Sub

    I’ve just installed.  Thanks again, Ashraf for your original post, and Terrence for the v3 link. I did turn off my modem just in case.  I also unchecked the offer of the free toolbar, as I’m wary about extras.  Not sure if the toolbar was just included in V3s download.

    Did anyone install the toolbar?

  • Sub

    I’ve just got it from the v3 store.  Thanks for the original post, plus the v3 link. It doesn’t say anything about 1 year limit for updates, so not sure whether to disconnect my internet connection before installing.

  • Terrence

    @Terrence: try V3? it also provides this free giveaway, good luck!

  • Terrence

    @john jordan: Really? I just successfully get the code, if you can not get it in pcauthority, you may try V3, it is available in V3 now.

    Thanx-a-lot for the easy to understand & follow step-by-step guide to obtain & install this software.It was very easy to get ASC PRO for FREE thru’ you.

    just to follow up on my comment # 21 I read about and followed the tip of comment # 21 John. The result is my Advanced System Care is the pro version with an expiration date of N/A. Doing this will not allow for auto updates but you can always update manually. After reading comment # 7 Frank that might not be such a bad thing. I’m going to keep the install file and registration info. Maybe I can reinstall it later if I have to. Take care

    Dear Ash :*)
    Just wanted to say THANKS.
    Much appreciate the time & energy you put into finding all these promos.
    Plus all the details & the step-by-step guides you provide.
    No matter what some naysayers proclame on GOTD, we all learn a lot from you, and you keep us from making mistakes or installing crapware.
    You just can «not» imagine how much 99.9% of us appreciate your work.
    Just hope the constant barrage of those 2 or 3 malcontents doesn’t discourage you! Cause it REALLY shouldn’t!
    Peace :D

  • gpc111

    thank you all for the tip on the user name. I completely overlooked that and only copied the license code. It’s a good think I haven’t installed it yet.
    Also thanks to John. I never seen your tip but I’m going to try it after I finish a download. Have a nice weekend everyone

  • @Ed: Before installing your lic code unplug your internet and it will be pro for life

  • Can’t get to Register from the Log-in page.  Site hangs. Maybe too busy?

  • yangzl

    i can’t find the entry for registration,everytime it returns to the login page. Ashraf or anybody can help? or just tell me why .

  • Gary`

    I apologize. I went back and saw that the Account Name was given at the same time as the license code. Everything worked fine. I now have the Pro version. Thanks.

  • Ashraf

    @Everyone having problems: The “Account name” is given to you long with the license code at the promotion page after you enter your login information. Please use that account name.

  • Gary`

    I got the license code OK, but do not have the Account Name that goes with the license to be able to go to Pro version. It gives the error message “Invalid license code for the account name”

  • Bosco

    @hipockets: Same here. Won’t let me register.

  • john jordan

    @Ed: are you sorted yet mate?

  • hipockets

    Thanks for the info, Ashraf.

    Unfortunately, no matter what I did I was not able to register as a new user. Maybe next time…..

  • john jordan

    I am having trouble to get this  free licence, i am logged into the site at the moment. I have installed the software and run it, but i have not received an activation email 

  • karen

    If you already have it and are extending your license, you need to do the following:
    1) open program
    2) go to Overview tab
    3) under User Account heading, click link “Professional”
    4) In the resulting popup, click “Install New License” and enter the Account Name and License code from this giveaway.
    5) It should now update to show your expiration date of 1 year from now.

  • Ed

    @John: I do not get what you are saying.

  • Ed

    I cannot go from free to Pro. I get as far as entering code F4B1-ACA1-A0FF-5DDA – it asks for account name. Is above correct code?

  • Mike

    Do note, after you install ASC, that if your system is slowing down, it may be due to ASC updating itself and its various definitions (if you have auto-updating turned on, as is recommended).  When that happens, I simply stop the process under Windows Task Manager and all is back to normal, and I have no issue when the program next updates itself.  Note that this sometimes happens to me in the morning, even though I have set ASC to update itself in the middle of the night–sometimes, the process seems to take awhile.

  • Don’t forget to unhook your internet before installing the lic key and you will have it for life.
