It's been a busy few months reviewing and rating to find the best PC optimizer for 2018. We tried and tested a large number of popular and not so popular optimizers to see which are the most effective in various categories.

Getting a real optimizer from a software developer that has its' primary focus on making the best possible software to please the customer is the only way you'll get true optimization that improves your speed dramatically.

What is the Best PC Optimizer?

After testing and reviewing optimization software for over a decade, we realize many users need these system utilities for different situations. Recently, we found the best results for each important category. That list includes the best for speed, which is the most popular. The second most popular type is system utilities for reparing a problem-filled PC. Finally, the third category showcases the top automatic and easy solution for beginners. We also prefer inclusion of an Internet optimizer feature built in to the program because a fast Internet connection is important in today's world.

Glarysoft Glary Utilities

Glary UtilitiesYears ago, I heard a few people discussing Glarys Utilities but I always thought it was a small time product. I was wrong. This is an decent PC optimization suite that deserves serious consideration if you want to manually tinket with your computer. Although, if you want extreme speed increases, there are better optimizers out there. With a very organized layout, the program is easy to understand and produces decent results.

Auslogics BoostSpeed

BoostSpeed Optimization and ease-of-use go hand in hand with the BoostSpeed optimizer. Will also clean out junk files from your data drives and helps to alleviate many (but not all) problems within Windows. Has an excellent interface that is beautifully designed, but unfortunately, the overall performance of the software is a bit lacking compared to others we tested.
BoostSpeed review

Systweak Advanced System Optimizer

Advanced System OptimizerThe Advanced System Optimizer aims at being a single-click optimizer. Includes an easy to set scheduling option to prep your machine for continual optimization. For more advanced users or the more daring, there's a few tools and utilities. As always though, proceed with caution, as the manual settings can be a bit tricky. Did not perform well enough in the speed optimization category for us.
ASO details

IOBIT Advanced SystemCare

Advanced SystemCare UltimateASC comes in 2 flavors. Whether you choose the Pro or Ultimate edition, you'll achieve a faster PC and Internet speed. We prefer ASC Ultimate due to the extra features such as a very robust, yet lightweight Internet security component. (Currently updating review for the new version)

Pointstone System Cleaner

System CleanerMore of a junk file cleaner than an optimizer. Unfortunately, many better and more advanced optimizers do this and a lot, lot more than what System Cleaner offers. Computer novices may find the program easy to navigate, but the reality will always be there, other advanced optimizers give extreme speed optimization at a similar price point. Also includes a basic registry cleaner that can safely reduce the size of your registry.

Uniblue PowerSuite

PowerSuiteDelivers an almost automatic PC optimization in an extremely safe and fairly effective manner. While it lacks some of the more advanced features of our other top selections, it will be a great choice for anyone who doesn't want (or have the time) to adjust numerous settings. Under the colorful design is a software solution that should appeal to most PC users, new or experienced.
