If you’re facing any Cleanup, Security, or slow-speed (Performance reduction) issues in the computer, then there’s a software called Advanced SystemCare that solves such issues with Single Click.
Today, we’re going to do an in-depth review of Advanced SystemCare. But before going to actual review, let’s have some basic information about this tool that what it does and how it works?
Advanced SystemCare is a PC optimization tool that is developed by IOBIT , a renowned PC tool developing Company. It is an ultimate solution for most PC issues. Whether you’re facing issues of Clean up, system optimization, Speed, Security and Privacy in your PC, Advanced SystemCare is there to solve the issues with one-Click.
This software does the task of various tools that too with One-Click. It’s easy interface and one click features to solve any technical issues allows any user, even a beginner or no-technical person, to handle this software easily.
Why do we need to install Advanced SystemCare?
There are lots of devices in the market that run on Windows, Mac or Android Operating System. These devices get slower with time. This happens due to ignorance of optimization. A device needs to be optimized periodically to maintain its good health and obtain smooth performance.
But optimizing the device manually is a complicated task. Therefore we need a tool that optimizes devices with minimal manual work and Advanced SystemCare is best when it comes to optimization.
It has all the features and functions that an optimizing tool should have. It doesn’t only optimize the PC but takes care of it by maintaining Speed, Privacy and Security.
The interface of Advanced SystemCare is easy and smooth. It won’t take much time to get started with it, basically you’ll see a typical IObit interface. Honestly speaking, all IObit ’s products have an easily accessible interface.
Talking about interface, there’s 6 options on top viz., Care, Speed Up, Tool Box, Protect, Software Updater and Action Center. These six menus contain different features like Speed Up modules containing all the tools related to Speed optimization.
On startup, there’s a big SCAN button which you can click after selecting at least one module from the 12 modules located below. Clicking on Scan takes you to its result page where you can see the list of issues along with a single click FIX and Back button.
Clicking on the FIX button automatically starts fixing each issue one by one. You don’t have to do any manual work to solve the issues. Everything is automated with Advanced SystemCare.
The right bottom has an Activate button. Hovering the mouse on the Activate button shows a list of Premium features that you can get by purchasing its premium version.
The left top has a hamburger Menu icon, clicking on this button leads you to the setting, customization, and more such options.
When you start Advanced SystemCare for the first time, you’ll see six tabs on top
- Speed Up
- Software Updater
- Action center
These tabs contain all the features that help to optimize the PC. So let’s check these tabs one by one and see what features it has and how it works.
The Care tab features allows Scanning and Fixing the issues.
The Care tab contains a total of 12 modules to clean. You can select all as per your need or you can select all at once by clicking on Select All option. But before scanning any module, lets get some idea about what these modules actually do.
This module is related to startup items. There are some files and programs that run automatically on startup of Windows. So it is important to optimize these files and programs as the boot time of a PC depends on this.
To optimize Startup related programs and files, there’s an option called Startup Optimization. This feature optimizes the boot time to achieve fast boot. Tick mark the Startup Optimization and click on the scan button.
Privacy Sweep is a feature of Advanced SystemCare that clears general activity and surfing history. This is very important not only from the Privacy point of view but also to clean the PC.
History consumes extra spaces on the computer. With time, these files increase and cause lagging issues to the Pc, hence it’s essential to clean history and Privacy Sweep feature is a perfect way to clean it.
Junk File Clean
The Junk files are the waste files that don’t come in use usually but still they are found in every PC. Mostly, these files include caches, data and much more. These files need to be clean as it consumes disk space and affects the performance of the PC.
However, it can be cleaned manually as well but with Advanced SystemCare, this task becomes more smooth and easy. You can check the list of all the Junk Files along with a one-click clean button.
Shortcut Fix helps you to scan and repair issues related to shortcuts. If you have any invalid shortcut on your computer, then scanning the Shortcut Fix module can find the issue. Once the issue gets detected, you can fix it by clicking on the FIX button.
Cleaning Registry files is most important to get a fast boot. However, it affects PC performance as well. But with Advanced SystemCare, it gets clean easily which further results in fast PC performance.
We often download files and softwares from unknown resources on the PC and compromise with the security. Sometimes, these files and softwares contain Spyware. Well, it’s fine when you’ve antivirus on your PC.
But if there’s no antivirus in the PC, then don’t worry, Advanced SystemCare is there to scan and remove Spywares. Just click on the Spyware Removal and scan. After scanning, if it detects any spyware, you can fix the issues with the Fix button.
Slow is the biggest problem of most of the people, especially for Asian countries. The internet speed can also be slow due to improper data management. Sometimes, lots of files and programs start consuming data altogether after connecting with the internet and in that case, the speed gets slow.
The Internet Boost module scans the background running programming consuming data and accelerates the speed by removing unwanted extra programs from the background after clicking on the Fix button.
System optimization is a module that allows the PC to work with its optimum power. It optimizes the whole system of the PC.
The registry is the database of the widows that stores all the configuration of Hardware, Softwares and Operating System. This database is quite big as it has all the details of the PC. Registry needs to optimized in order to improve the performance of the PC
Advanced SystemCare defrag the registry to optimize it. Defragment is a process of arranging the same type files at one place so that if the system needs any types files, it can find it easily.
However, if you need to optimize the PC by defragmenting, then you should go for IObit ’s Smart Defrag, a software from the same company designed for Defragment purposes. Smart Defrag is best at defragment.
Digital hacking and cheating is improving day by day. Hackers are working with new ways and hence we have to reinforce the security to tackle these cheatings and hackings.
This module of Advanced SystemCare shows the security weaknesses once the scan gets completed. You can purchase its Pro plan to Fix the security issues. But if you want be safe from these cheating and hacking, then IObit Malware Fighter is the best
Vulnerability is the most common entrance point for a malware. Majority of systems are hacked due to vulnerabilities in it. That’s why, it is necessary to check the vulnerabilities and fix it to safeguard the system.
Vulnerabilities modules scans the vulnerabilities or bugs and loopholes in the windows that can act as entry points for the malware.
Disk optimization involves disk defragment and I said earlier in this Advanced SystemCare review that defragmenting is the process of arranging the files in such a manner that same type files are placed at one place.
This module of Advanced SystemCare can fix the defragment issues of the HDD to improve the performance. But actually, Advanced SystemCare isn’t capable of defragmenting the disk properly.
There’s a separate software named IObit Smart Defrag developed by IObit. It is specially meant for defragmentation. So in case you’ve defragment issues in the HDD of a PC, then you should get Smart Defrag as well.
The Speed tab has all the features which is required to boost the performance of the PC. This tab has Turbo Boost, Hardware Accelerate, Deep Optimization and App/Toolbar Cleaner.
The most common way to boost the performance is keep RAM Free as much as possible. The Turbo boost simply checks the softwares or applications running in the background and disables unnecessary applications. This creates more space in RAM and thus performance gets boosted.
To turn ON Turbo Boost, just hover the cursor on the Turn ON button and select the mode. If you select Game Mode, then Turbo Boost will automatically ON when any game starts.
There are four modes, Work Mode, Game Mode, Economy Mode and Start at Windows startup, you can select any mode
Work Mode: It boosts the PC moderate level to have smooth working experience
Game Mode: This mode boosts the PC at high level to have best gaming experience
Economy Mode: This mode boosts the PC to average level with minimal battery usage.
Configure Turbo Boost
If you’re not completely satisfied with the default boost options and want to make some changes, then you can configure the turbo boost manually, as per your need. To configure turbo boost:
- Hover the cursor and Click on Configure
- Select the Boost Mode between Work, Game and Economy Mode.
- Tick the boxes from the background running applications’ list
- Check the Turn on Turbo Boost at Windows startup box
- Click on Boost.
In this way, the Turbo Boost can be configured.
Windows PC contains lots of drivers. These drivers get old with time, that’s why it has to be updated periodically. Sometimes drivers don’t get installed which cause failure of some windows functions or slow down the PC.
In such cases, Advanced SystemCare emerges as a great asset. It’s Hardware Accelerator checks all the outdated and missing drivers and Fixes those drivers to boost performance.
However, IObit has a Driver Booster which serves as the ultimate solution for any driver’s issues. I highly recommend that you go for that as well if you have any driver issues with your PC. We’ve done a detailed review on IObit Driver Booster, check that as well.
Deep Optimizations accelerates the performance by optimizing Hard Disk, registry and networks. It will automatically suggest files that need to be optimized.
When you install Advanced SystemCare on your PC, it shows the number of files that required optimization. Simply Click on the Optimize All button to optimize all together.
You check the details as well by hovering on the Optimize All button and clicking on Details.
Apps/Toolbar cleaner help to boost the browsing experience by removing malicious softwares, toolbars, plugins, etc. Although, it doesn’t remove those malicious apps but it shows the names of those apps and plugins.
You’ll need to install IObit Uninstaller, which is a specialized program to install malicious and unnecessary apps and plugins. By the way, IObit Smart Defrag, Driver Booster and IObit Uninstaller are immensely popular tools. You must try these as well.
The Protect tab has all the security options that a PC must have to strengthen its security. It has six security options or features to enhance the security, these are Privacy Shield, Surfing protection and Ads Removal, Browser anti-tracking, Real-time Protector and Homepage Advisor.
Privacy Shield: It protects sensitive data against secret access to avoid any privacy leaks. Hovering cursor on enable button provide two options, enable Sensitive Data Protection and Untrusted Program Blocker
Surfing protection and Ads Removal: This module provides security to browsers from online threats, phishing attacks and much more. It has three more options to enable, Email Protection, Surfing Protection and Ads Removal.

According to me, you’ll not regret buying this tool. We spend lots of money for Antivirus or System Booster and many more tools, but Advanced SystemCare is a single tool that can do the tasks of various tools.
Advanced SystemCare improve performance?
Advanced SystemCare improves performance by optimizing the files and programs. It optimizes the files by cleaning, defragging and creating a wall for malicious content.
After its first run, you will definitely notice its optimization and performance improvements. Quick Boot is the first thing that most of people notice.
Impact on System
When you run Advanced SystemCare for the first time, it takes a few minutes to analyze the system. First startup takes little time.
It doesn’t create much stress on the system as it consumes almost 0.1% of the CPU. Since it is very weight software, you won’t face any lagging issues.
But few lagging problems might occur when you try to optimize core system parts such as disk, RAM, etc.
According to some users, Advanced SystemCare actually optimizes and improves performance on only those things that you select to optimize and general performance gets slower slightly. For example, if you select Registry Clean or Junk File Clean, then it will optimize only these things and reduce the general performance.
Over-optimization with this tool slightly slows the general performance. Well, that’s the only problem with this tool, otherwise it works fine, does its task efficiently without any harsh impact on the system.
Advanced SystemCare Free vs Pro
Advanced SystemCare provides most of the necessary features for Free and most people find it enough for maintaining the good health of the PC. However, to some extent, it’s true.
