Free Iobit complete system care

Advanced SystemCare is IObit's free version of their robust SystemCare tools. SystemCare incorporates multiple utility tools that help speed up the performance of your computer, including cleaning old temporary files that can be causing performance degradation. The new AI mode can intelligently clean your PC according to your usage habits. 

Advanced SystemCare has numerous features that can be helpful for both the average and extensive PC users. Unfortunately, many features are locked behind the paid version; thus, if you're looking for additional functionality, you might find Total System Care or Wise Care to cover your needs. 

PC Optimization within your control

Users are immediately greeted with a large scan button in the center of the application, which allows you to conduct a simple, quick scan. Advanced SystemCare will then suggest fixes based on what it has found within your system. These are typically junk files, created shortcuts or start-up items that you may not know are active. 

Users have multiple optimization tools at their disposal, including other tools designed to safeguard your online surfing and browser tracking. However, some of these features require you to upgrade to their next available package. Annoyingly, these features are still highlighted on the free version itself. 

Turbo boost helps halt background processes slowing down your PC, and the Advanced SystemCare updater notifies you when software on your device requires updating. We couldn't see much use for the software updater as it couldn't find all of the relevant updates needed, but it can be a quick way to pick up on something you previously missed. Finally, users can use Deep Optimization, which performs a series of system optimizations. 

It can be pretty challenging to see Advanced SystemCare's true impact on your device at face value. If you've been neglecting your PC's health for a while, then you may immediately notice a difference in its performance once running a scan. 

On the other hand, performance change may go unnoticed if you have a device that hasn't been used to download multiple applications. Mileage may vary with standard use PCs, but the functionality offered here can be a real boon for those in an office environment where files are consistently shared between devices. 

Intrusive advertising from the outset

While Advanced SystemCare's functionality is useful for many applications, the same cannot be said for their advertising process. Users experience this first hand during the initial installation after dodging multiple 3rd party software download recommendations. These pop-ups, while annoying, are easy to spot for a user that regularly downloads software. 

However, this practice would largely go unnoticed by users who infrequently face these installation processes. Thus, a predatory model for installing unwanted programs onto users' computers. Additionally, the software continuously pushes for a premium upgrade through its locked functionality and in-app banners ads.

Ease of use and additional information

Advanced SystemCare has an easy-to-use, modern-looking interface that is friendly and allows for quick access. The scan button is front and center for those only interested in the scan feature. Other options are available to change and use for those more adept to their desired effect. 

It is important to note that it can be challenging to acknowledge when something is a valuable function or simply a button to install another IObit product, so caution is needed before selecting something that isn't clearly labeled. 

Finally, sometimes there can be a disconnect between the information received and the initial scan function's usefulness. For example, System optimization improvements may pull a quick list of optimizations to be made. Still, some of these can be a random string that doesn't mean anything to the average user, forcing the user to blindly accept and hope for the best. 

Optimisation, with a little extra

IObit's Advanced SystemCare has many tools at its disposal to aid in the optimization and performance of your device. As a free tool, it accomplishes everything it sets out to do, and even running it once as a check-up should prove beneficial. 

However, be sure to install only the correct application and not the other 3rd party downloads the installer throws at you.
