Free system utilities producer IObit announced the release of its flagship product Advanced SystemCare 4, a free program that tunes and optimizes your PC to its best performance possible. Adopted with IObit’s latest engine and improved program core structure, Advanced SystemCare 4 is now capable of delivering more comprehensive and deeper system cleaning, repairing and optimization experience.
The interface of Advanced SystemCare 4 has received a significant overhaul compared to the previous version. Instead of having many buttons and links in one place, Advanced SystemCare 4 groups various all functions into 4 major sections.
The program's Quick Care option includes the ability to clean your Registry, perform a malware scan, fix and remove broken shortcuts, delete junk files, and erase browsing tracks.
The Deep Care option adds deeper options to the features available under Quick Care. These include a full malware scan, deeper Registry clean, disk defragmenting, junk file cleaner and privacy sweep among others. The Privacy Seep tool can clear history of all installed browsers, as well as recent file history of a several Windows application such as Microsoft Office software, Photoshop, Nero, Google Earth, VLC, WinRAR, etc. The junk file cleaner can clean temporary and unwanted files from a wide range of location.
There is also a Windows vulnerability fix and Passive Defense tool that respectively fixes Windows vulnerability issues and prevents malware from being installed. However, the program doesn’t describe exactly how.
The Turbo Boost module disables system services in an attempt to accelerate your computer's performance. Users are advised to exercise caution when using the Turbo Boost tool as it may shut down essential services like Windows update and keyboard hotkeys.
In version 4, “Utilities” module in version 3 is replaced by the “Toolbox” which has more than 20 dedicated smart tools for everyday PC maintenance or advanced needs. These include tools for system cleaning, optimizing and repairing, game booster, tools for security enhancement, and tools for fully control over the system such as uninstaller, defragmenter and so on. These are again grouped together into convenient sections – Clean, Optimize, Repair, Security and Control.
Many of the tools of Advanced SystemCare 4 is also integrated with Windows explorer shell. For instance, you can right click on a file from explorer and “shred” it, or right-click on a folder and preform disk analysis. Similarly right clicking on a partition offers you to perform defragmentation, and disk clean.
Advanced SystemCare 4 also comes with 10 fantastic skins.
Advanced SystemCare 4 is a freeware designed for Windows 7, Vista, XP and 2000.
