dotTech Advice

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.]

    Thank you. I am running Acronis True Image now. Maybe I will try the other program if not, I have an image just in case of disaster. :)

  • richard

    I use Acronis True Image and I did not have to reinstall anything.
    Carefully select the features and have a good back up in place.

  • ebony

    Oh my!!!
    Thank you for responding.
    When you made the image, was it just of your OS? Did you have to reinstall all of your programs individually?

    So if I decided to you use this program, maybe just select features or maybe not at all.????

  • richard

    You should be concerned about the changes the program makes. On my XP I allowed it to make its recommended changes and I ended up with a computer that consantly rebooted itself.

    Fortunatley I made a image before I ran the program and I was able to restore my OS

  • Deborah

    Already not free anymore, Have been trying since this afternoon.

  • ebony

    Welcome back Ashraf. (even I cannot pronounce it. :)

    Got it and my code.

    For anyone that can help me. I have a couple of concerns.

    How do I configure this for the best use. For example, I have a SW that automatically updates most of my programs. However, I keep getting this screen from this program with a valentine logo asking me to update it. I want to get rid of that but I am not sure which file to delete.

    The other thing is, should I let it automatically run and not be concerned about the changes it makes?

  • John R

    Thanks very much everyone. Got my code at last and registered.

  • PK

    It’s working now – license and download.

    NOTE: IT HAS TO BE ACTIVATED BY 24 February 2012. (says at the bottom of the page)

  • John R

    @John R:

    That should say
    There are still 15 hours til 23:59 …

    Thanks for your help, Chuck. It was, indeed, the site you mention that spoke of disabling the licence code. I did not know if the protocols here allowed naming, so I was being discreet.
    After more looking around, I think the problem may be at Download Crew. My log-in there goes fine, but the Get Serial Code button on the promotions page appears to be inactive. Other links on that page are OK, just not the tick-boxes and button refering to getting the serial code. Maybe it is all down to server overload?
    There are still 21 hours till 23:59 CET – I will keep trying.

  • Ashraf

    @Everyone: Sorry about the poor quality screenshots and the lack of screenshots on the actual registration process. I wrote this article on a computer that didn’t have FastStone Capture (I used Snipping Tool).

  • greg b

    if already installed just get code to upgrade for those free users.

    I take it tha sm is system mechanic. I have it on main comp and dont let fix security vulnerabilities. run both reg cleaners and see if find same things. sm usually get some I never see on others so leave be too.

    thanks for code it was fast to email it to me.

  • chuck (detailer)

    @NickK: Having also used SM for several years,my main gripe with it is how painfully slow it has become .It takes forever to clear browser cache,ten times longer then performing the same operation from within the browser itself.I also am unhappy with the lack of descriptiveness in regard to the system optimization.It doesn’t tell you what services it intends to disable or switch to manual.Those types of broad stroke profile adjustments are scary to say the least.
    I couldn’t agree more that auto-care is for idiots,and registry cleaning is an absolute crap shoot regardless of who the coder is.I will run a reg cleaner after removing an antivirus program,as even Revo Pro in advanced mode has missed a few things from my experience.
    I think it’s best summed up by saying that using a registry cleaner is like sweeping out one parking space in a lot the size of Montana. It really just doesn’t make a difference.

  • chuck (detailer)

    @John R: Wishing you luck John.The code from a previous offer in this article > > is not the same as the one I received from DLCrew a couple hours ago There may yet be hope,as servers are probably overloaded.

  • NickK

    Good work Ashraf,

    How would you rate ACS in comparison to SM ?

    Note, although you did discourage installing SM for new PC users back in last December, I installed it anyway to give it a go. It would make not sense to have both ACS and SM running on the same machine. All is good so far with SM and I do think it has provided a performance improvement, not so much because of the registry cleaning, but its more advanced defrag methods (Program Accelerator). I also rate the tools provided to enable/disable startup programs.

    Any Reg cleaner is capable of breaking something at one stage or another and you may not realise it right away. For example, I only realised that the BitDefender Firewall IDS could not be enabled as well as the Active Virus Control (for Behavioural Threats). I’m pretty sure it was SM, but in defence to it, it could have been CCleaner that caused this – they both pick up the same “Missing Shared DLL” entries. I now exclude cleaning these parts from Reg cleaning. I would not have noticed this problem for a while and only realised it after giving the Bitdenfender interface a little more attention. The problem was fixed after I uninstalled/reinstalled BitDefender.

    Was SM worth it – and is it therefore worth using ACS? I think it could be, but use it carefully and conservatively. I would not recommend any auto care function or do it “all in one go” method. I use the the individual tools only when I think they are needed and always have a system restore or Reg backup and a prior system Image at hand.

    It is currently 23.58 on 21 Feb 2012 heere in the UK. I have been trying to get the activation code for this offer for over an hour. Having logged into downloadcrew, when I click on the Get Serial Code button nothing happens.
    I believe I followed all instrusctions correctly.
    By the way: Other giveaway sites have reported that IObit has disabled the licence code.
    All help greatly appreceiated.

    @chuck (detailer): Chuck, Thank you for that info. –Frank

  • chuck (detailer)

    @Frank D: Frank-Unfortunately,IObit removed the “once” option from the update scheduler.This was great because you just chose a random time on the day before the actual date,and done,no more update checks.My advice would be to set as “check for updates when program is launched”.In this setting you will be notified via pop-up,but ASC will need your permission to proceed.Since V5.0 was only recently released,I think you are safe with updates until the next version (presumably V6.o) is offered.Cheers!

  • Frank D

    Thank you! Looks like a keeper.

    What about auto-updates? It appears you can’t turn auto-update off, so I set it for Sunday at 3:00 AM, when I’m certain NOT to have the computer turned on. Will this protect me from getting an update and thereby losing continuity with the PRO version?

  • chuck (detailer)

    @David Goldstein: David-Your problems were most likely caused through the “System Optimization” process.Depending upon what setting you chose there,for example “Daily Home User”,ASC sets out to make many changes in respect to several areas of the OS.One of the most overlooked by users who just click on “Repair” is wholesale changes in”System Services”.Many are disabled at this point.Your Search feature was probably a victim here.I can’t speak to Outlook as I don’t use it.There is an option within ASC for “Rescue” which is “Restore Windows Defaults”,which presumably will undo any changes made through the program.It’s like a System Restore within ASC. You must always carefully examine the scan results,and understand what each of those recommended changes is or does. Chuck-Administrator IObit Forums

  • I have had a lot of trouble with Advanced System Care – it seems to have caused the Windows Search to malfunction – my Vista x64 would no longer search from the ‘Start Search’ box which comes up when ‘Start’ is clicked. Also, my Outlook 2007 would also not allow searching – I would get a message saying that Outlook has not finished indexing – which message never went away and no search results would appear. Tech support at Iobit attempted to get to the bottom of the problem but they finally gave up. I had to do a System Restore to the point before the ASC was installed, and all was well again. I would heed Ashraf’s advice to not use a utility such as this unless absolutely necessary on an older machine. Anybody else had this problem?

  • chuck (detailer)

    @Hamza: Just be real careful with the “deep scan” option for the reg. cleaner in this version (V.5)I’ve actually shyed away from the registry cleaning thing,as there is no evidence that it actually boosts performance,which has certainly been my experience after several years of trying them all.I can,however give testimony to the harm and devastation they are capable of if used without extreme caution.

  • chuck (detailer)

    Thanks a bunch! After IObit’s Valentines promo was a bust,and then the one on Raymond’s because of over-posting,and publication of the reg.code,it’s nice to have another bite at the apple.Cheers!!
