WiseCare 365 Review

Glarysoft Glary Utilities Review

4 Star Rating

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.

Systweak Advanced System Optimizer Review

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.

AVG Tuneup Review

AVG TuneupProvides a quick Windows tuneup and finished the scan and repair in short time. Average performance gains. From the well known AVG brand that provides excellent anti-virus software. We have been and still are big fans of AVG's security products, but the optimization software is a little on the lackluster side compared to more experienced developers in the optimizing field. Only consider if you're a strong supporter of the AVG brand. For us though, our allegiance is always going to be optimization results based.

Symantec Norton Utilities Review

Norton Utilities This utilities and tools program has been around for a long time. It was one of the first I used decades ago.

The good news is it's still an effective cleaning solution for your Windows' computer, but it lacks some of the advanced optimization functionality of the more heavily featured optimizers.

Pirform CCleaner Pro Review

CCleaner ProOne of the most popular cleaning utilities for years, now the Pro version offers a few more features for those who want to pay a little extra for a little more.

CCleaner Pro will remove needless files, and other junk data that can accumulate on your system over time. Cleaning those files can lead to minor speed improvements.

Slimware SlimCleaner Pro

SlimCleaner ProSlimCleaner can remove junk files and crud on your hard dives or SSDs. Optimizes your Windows startup for slightly improved boot speed.

Works fairly well for what it is, a system cleaner with a few optimization opportunities from the user help and boost mode.

Pointstone System Cleaner Review

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 (Full Review and Details)

PowerSuiteUpdate - No longer available. Delivers 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.
PowerSuite review


WinutilitiesA comprehensive selection of Windows utilities to help fix your PC of any problems, even optimize, and speed up your system. Includes a full regiment of tools to clean the registry, temp files, erase apps, web history and cache. You will also be able to schedule maintenance at a time of your choosing. After working with WinUtilities for a few minutes, you'll have a more stable and faster PC.

AmigaBit PowerBooster (Quick Review and Details)

PowerBoosterWinner of the "Top Easy and Automatic Optimizer". Combines ease-of-use with all of the pure power of a more complicated optimizer. PowerBooster is the choice for those who want quick results but don't need or want to dig into manual settings for more detailed optimizations. A perfect PC optimizer for new users, but experienced users will also enjoy its' simple road to powerful optimization.

Auslogics BoostSpeed (Full Review and Details)

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.
