I was wondering if this was a legit program or if it messed up your computer. I looked up reviews and they were all good I just was wondering if anyone on this forum has had experience with the program and wanted to know what was the deal with it. So far assuming it's doing what it says it is, it's a great program.

I'm a 32-bit Vista Home Premium user, and about 2 months ago I downloaded a program from CNET.com which had been suggested to me by a friend. The program in question, Advanced System Care Free, has since been removed from my computer.

About 3-4 weeks ago, while I was trying to load Final Fantasy VIII, a window popped up. (Image above) I couldn't figure out what the "problem" might be, I'd been running FF8 on my computer for over a year without problems/crashes. I turn on the game, it goes through it's usual opening sequence, splashes a manufacturer's name across the screen, and then, just as it's loading the saved games, the loading bar stops mid-load, and the game crashes. That's when this window pops up.

Naturally I have no idea what "problem" this could be. There's no emphasis towards missing files or a code number I can use to look it up on the internet, nothing. Another thing I noticed right off the bat was that it couldn't possibly be something to do with Final Fantasy, but rather a problem with another program. I tried virus scan which turned up nothing.

About once a month, I go through Programs and Features and uninstall and delete everything I don't use/need. A few days after the FF8 crash, I tried this. Of course, I found some little things here and there that I didn't need, but when I went to uninstall them, I'd click on it and nothing would happen. I wouldn't get any sort of response from my computer, not even an hour glass s... Read more

Welcome to the Forum Maggan,

"PC Booster/Tune Up" programs are part of the worst programs you can install on a system. When it comes to messing up your system (Windows), these are as worst as malware. They are completely worthless and useless to use. The worst is that they'll often take action on your system without you knowing, nor authorizing it, which could lead to your system being altered in a way you don't want it to be or even worst, a "broke" system. Every feature they provide, you can either do it natively under Windows, do it via another standalone executable (which is way easier and safer to use) or they aren't providing something you need. Here's a few examples:Cleaning temporary files: TFC (standalone executable), CCleaner (installed), Cleanmgr.exe (in-built);Managing start-up entries: Autoruns (standalone executable), CCleaner (installed), Task Manager and Registry (in-built);Driver Updater: Not needed, all you need is to go on your manufacturer website so you'll be sure to get the right, official, working drivers for your computer or hardware;Registry Cleaner/Defragger: Completely useless and also dangerous;Disk Defragging: Disk Defrag (in-built), O&O Disk Defrag (installed), Defraggler (installed);Powerful uninstaller: Not needed, only needed when you have to make sure a program is completely uninstalled. Revo Uninstaller have a portable version you can use;"Enhanced" Task Manager: Procexp (standalone executable), Process Hacker (portable or installed);"Active security": Any Antivirus... Read more

Try compatibility mode, see #4 since the software is installed already, leave the compatibility mode to Vista.

Compatibility Mode

Here is some good advice when installing programs in Vista, This is good advice even if the program was designed for Vista.

Here is how to install software or drivers on Vista that are for XP,2000,NT4,98,95

1. Download your program to a folder of choice, Right click on the setup.exe file for the software/driver you are trying to install and select properties, if there is an "Unblock" button on the General Tab, click it, then go to the compatibility Tab

2. Tick the "run this file in compatibility mode" box and then select XP in the drop down box,, or whatever OS the software was designed for, also Tick "run this program as Administrator" if it is available, hit OK. If it was designed for Vista then skip compatibility and only use run as administrator.

3. Now double click this setup.exe file to execute the install process, hopefully all will go well and install the drivers/Software you need.

4. If the exe installs software for the device, or you have installed software only, you need to navigate to the program folder where it installed, then do the compatibility thing (1 & 2) again for the program executable(s). If the program was designed for Vista skip compatibility mode, just tick "run as administrator"

I do not guarantee all drivers or software to work in Vista, but a large percentage do..

Hi all. I was just wondering what your opinion is of this software. It's touted as the next best thing since sliced bread by some. As with other software of its kind, it has a registry cleaner that I wouldn't use anymore than I'd use sandpaper in the bathroom. But it does have other useful features. Is it worthwhile? I already use CCleaner.

Hi

According to this page, it works fine and users are satisfied. I do not use it so I have no personal knowledge. I would make a system restore point before installing. If not satisfied you can return to the way it was prior to installaion. More through and efficient, no remnants remain, than uninstall. It is fully compatible with 32 or 64 bit.

I recently installed Advanced System Care [Professional Version].

I am using Windows XP.

Once installed I ran a "Diagnose System."

At the conclusion of this run the "Security Analyzer" had a suggestion which said:

"Please note the items listed here are not all problems or malware. They are critical settings of your system and common targets of malware. Before you remove any item, make sure it is malware. The log file of Security Analyzer is 100% compatible with HijackThis log so you can save this report and submit it to any qualified online HijackThis log analyzer and HijackThis forums. at the end which told me I should run Hijack This and then take the results and post them on an appropriate Forum to be reviewed for any problems."

This is the purpose of my post.

I hope I have done it appropriately.

I appear to have dislodged ASC 9 but ASC 8 remains doggedly. Since removing ASC 9 my start up problems are resolved but other varying problems have suspiciously appeared.

Over the years we have had many problems which came along after folk used System Mechanic. Avoid all those things, they are unnecessary and cause more problems than they fix.CCleaner is one of the safest but by no means essential.

Hi paul I'll post what I usually post when I encounter people using IObit products and most specifically, PC Boosters like Advanced System Care. These speeches contains all the information you need to know about these two things and hopefully you'll understand my point of view towards IObit and Advanced System Care by reading them.IObit Software Warning!IObit have been accused in the past from using shady techniques in order to promote and enhance their products, one of which was to steal Malwarebytes' definition database to include it in their "Antimalware", IObit Malware Fighter. On top of that, their main product, Advanced SystemCare, goes into the "PC Booster" category of program, which are useless programs since there's no proofs or facts that these actually boost the performance of a system, and are borderline "scamware". In fact, these programs have a tendency to cause a variety of issues under Windows, that can be solved by uninstalling the software, ironic isn't it? Most of their features can be replaced by using other programs, often, utilities that requires no installation or that are already "built-in" inside Windows. Therefore, I strongly suggest you to uninstall every IObit program you have installed on your system.Below are articles that relates the Malwarebytes VS IObit episode and also why IObit failed as a company and within it's products.IOBit Steals Malwarebytes' Intellectual PropertyIObit accused of stealing from MalwarebytesIOBit's Denial of Theft Unconv...

Look, I have used their software for 3 years, not once did I ever legitimately purchase form them. Who pays for software these days anyway? I always presumed it was a good piece of software, but recently I installed a clean version of Windows. I reinstalled ASC, after I first installed Hamachi, teamviewer, and Steam. I then decided to do a scan and when it was finished, this is the results. I have taken a screenshot. What I want to know is, what features are harmless on ASC and what is harmful. I do not want bad advice and negative comments regarding ASC. I want honest negative and positive. I want to know what features are okay and what aren't while using ASC. I do realize it does help to some degree, but I don't actually know what features are safe and what features cause damage. Now, I did a clean Windows install, so these so called pc issues shouldn't even exist, and if they should, tell me what is okay to fix and what should be left alone.

Hi, i've got a question about the premium version of Advanced System Care. I've been using the free version for a little while now, after a previous recommendation, and im very satisfied with the program thus far. That being said, i've been offered by the company a slight discount on the upgrade to the premium version for $20, and im very curious to know if it would be worth the money.

I've been sold on programs to improve PC performance before, only to be disappointed, so here's my main question for anyone currently using or having recently used this premium version: Were there any significant increases in PC performance after upgrading or much better cleaning processes?

Any additional insight would be much appreciated, and thank you in advance for all the help!
 

A:Opinions on Advanced System Care PRO Needed

Hi,
I stay away from reg cleaners etc but saw this free version suggested at TechSupportAlert. I used it rarely, saw no change in performance. The 'pro' version was offered free on GiveAwayOfTheDay so I installed it ... no difference in performance.
Running Vista Basic on new Dell laptop.

Just my experience though.

Advanced System Care is junkware; I'd say the vast majority of those warnings are false positives. I'd uninstall that app immediately.

If you are concerned that she may be infected please visit the malware forum and follow the instructions on the sticky at the top entitled 'Everyone must read these instructions prior to posting'.....that will generate the logs necessary for a shielded member (one who is qualified to read and analyze malware logs) to assist.

My PC seems infected by some virus. Malwarebytes stopped opening on startup so I uninstalled it. Now when I install malwarebytes it gives me runtime error and it wont let me install even with MB clean tool.
 
I have so far tried this.
 
1. Uninstall Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware using Add/Remove programs in the control panel.
2. Restart your computer.
3. Download and run this utility. Mbam clean
4. It will ask to restart your computer (please allow it to).
5. After the computer restarts, install the latest version from here. http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam-download.php
 
It wont let me go past run time error stage. I also have Advanced System care I can no longer open that it says (Access denied).

I did a real foolish mistake, I installed IO Advanced System care free and didn't uncheck to do a registry clean, with that mistake I can't open any exe files, not a exe file like regedit nothing. I can boot into windows but all my icons, unless it's all connected are messed up, but some programs work, although not all, only a few, the important ones I need like restore point don't work. My guess is immediately a virus or malware, now I must remove any suggestion or a solution ?

A:iOBit Advanced System Care, Good or Bad

For the record: Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:? Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.? Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a progra...

First time poster. I'm an intermediate user who hasn't had many problems. I'm on an HP Pavilion dv6500 with Vista Home Premium w/Service Pack 1.

I have heard a lot about programs and applications that "clean/fix your registry" or whatever that means. I am curious if I run a deep clean on this, would it really help my computer instead of just making the entire computer worse than before. If this is a bad program to use, what is a good one then? Also I have used CCleaner before, only reason why I started to use Advanced System Care Pro is because it seemed to have more options to "seem" better I suppose.

A:Does Advanced System Care Pro really work, or is it just a useless product.

use advanced system care pro at your own risk. Just because it has more features does not make it better and just like other registry programs, it could royally mess things up if you are having problems and you use it to try to fix things. I have also seen them cause problems on perfectly working computer because of deleting so called orphan entries on the registry.

the only results you see in most registry type programs are because you are cleaning your system of temporary files. Those files take up limited folder space and will slow your computer down when the folders and or drive gets too full.

the answers will still be the same as your other thread.

There is no dump file in the attachment and your msinfo file does not load either.

System Optimisers:
These software tend to cause of BSOD's. The windows 7 operating system does not require these registry cleaning software. They often tune-down rather than tune-up and can wreck the OS beyond repair. Microsoft have improved Windows 7 significantly and it is much better at organising and optimising itself than its predecessors. Check this, this and this thread for evidence.

If you feel the need to use a registry cleaning or optimisation software, most of us recommend the use of CCleaner but make sure you back up the registry before making letting ccleaner delete anything.

I have been using Advanced System Care (ASC) for years (versions 4-7) without problems. Suddenly, version 8 is giving me a BSOD everytime I run it. IOBIT can't tell me what's wrong. They are blaming my system, Norton (which I also have been using for years in conjunction with ASC), anything but their software.

Can anyone help me determine exactly what is causing this trouble. If I have to get rid of ASC, it goes!

Great idea to get rid of it. Think of the money to be saved. Same goes for Norton. There's loads of really good free security software and, if you've not come across it yet, CCleaner is a useful free utility.

The issue is fairly minor, and has to do with the Windows Taskbar being unable to go back to original settings. I have attached a screenshot of two accounts on my Windows XP laptop, one has had the taskbar changed with Advanced System Care, the other hasn't. I cannot revert the account with the modified taskbar to be of the original width. How do I reset the taskbar to default settings? I've already tried Control Panel>Display>Windows XP Default, and right-clicking on the taskbar to change taskbar settings brings up no option to reset to defaults or to change the width of the taskbar button.

This will probably be of no use to anyone, but the machine in question is an Acer Aspire 3003WLC with 256MB RAM and a 1.8Ghz AMD Mobile Sempron. It's running Windows XP Home Edition with service pack 3 installed, and I'm using Advanced System Care 5.0

Hello, I'm currently in safe mode in my windows 7 laptop which i can only access this computer by. The reason is because when i try to boot windows regularly, i get past the login screen then to be pwned by some black screen with my cursor only displaying.

What i think it's from?

I downloaded a software from IOBit called Advanced system care, then i ran a full system clean. I came back later to reset my laptop and encountered an update, i let it update. When the update was finished, i started getting the Black screen of death.

Things i tried:

- System restore (It couldn't find a restore due to the update)
- Uninstalling updates (No difference was made)
- The CTRL+ALT+DEL then some link for the fix (CTRL+ALT+DEL doesn't work)
- Start up repair (Nope, no difference)
- The /sfc command (It worked but, still no difference)

I'm think pretty much stuck as i don't have a Windows 7 CD, although i have a formatted USB, i'm considering downgrading to XP. But, i'm getting problems with that aswell.

All help will be appreciated !

A:Windows 7 Black screen after windows update/Advanced system care

my first suggestion just to see if we can get you booting is to open msconfig
(just type it in the search box in the start bar)
go to the startup tab, and untick everything there.
Reboot normally and see if you load.
Hopefully it's a startup application.
If this works you can slowly retick the items in msconfig under the startup tab until you find the program actually causing the problem.

So, I recently installed Advanced System Care from iobit and ran the complete scan. It made a good number of changes but nothing seemed amiss. The next time I went to start up, though, Windows 7 hung on start-up (at the "pulsating Windows" stage, as I like to call it). Did a hard shut down and restart, Windows ran System Repair and System Restore, and start-up was successful, and the iobit software was removed. The problem, though, is that this has happened every time I've started up the computer since (i.e., it hangs at the pulsating windows icon, hard shut-down, Windows Repair, System Restore, and then I can finally get to work).

The only vestige I can find of the iobit software is an ntuser.dat.iobit file. Is this the probable cause of the start-up issue? Can I safely just remove this file? Why didn't System Restore get rid of it?

Any ideas?
 

A:Advanced System Care from iobit, ntuser.dat.iobit and startup troubles...

Using IObit Advanced SystemCare and other apps of that nature is a good way to trash the Windows operating system and wreak havoc with a computer.

It's not immediately clear what this is for. It isn't just for upgrading to a new o/s .

It has lots of other useful functions.

Even if you already have the partition manager, it is worth the download for the Virtualization manager.

For the past week I have been working with IoBit in testing various betas of Advanced Windows Care.

Finally after many unreleased betas, I now have Advanced Windows Care working with Vista x64.

I would say that it won't be too long before they release the final version of Advanced Windows Care that is compatible with x64.

I consider Advanced Windows Care to be a great all in one program and after I had problems with their beta, I offered to test for them.

I will update this thread once it's released.

I also downloaded and have tried the Beta. But I have been using the Personal(Free) edition for some time now, on 64 and 32 bit. I would recommend it as an all in one disk cleaner and reg cleaner to anyone. I run it once a week, on the defaults, and it has not (so far!) let me down.
I have also tried the Beta on the 64 bit Vista. It seemed to do it's job, but of course, I did not get any extra speed advantages as it is still 32 bit coding only.

Hi all

I just want to get some info from all you experts out there on two of the system security programs I use which are advanced system care pro and kaspersky anti virus.

I'm pretty confident that kaspersky works well but I'm a little worried about ASCP since I read somewhere that it can actually do more harm than good if not used properly. I upgrade to the pro version from the free version and it has many many settings, some of which don't make a lot of sense to me (meaning that I don't really know how they work).

Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks!

PS - I also use spybot and ad aware, but not as much as the other two.

A:Your thoughts on Advanced sys care and kaspersky

Purely from a BSOD perspective Kaspersky is better avoided.
Microsoft Security Essentials is generally recommended as suitable for Win 7.
I would also suggest you forget about Advanced system Care Pro.
Generic advice -
If you do not have knowledge of the registry, then you would probably be better off leaving it alone, and definitely not placing blind trust in a program to do the job for you.

To advise anyone that a "Registry Cleaner" works, and that it will fix or speed up their machine {or all the other nonsense that is often propagated about these things} can mislead people.

Should you decide to go ahead -
Make sure you have
1. a current System Restore point created.
2. a recent "Back up" of your computer- preferably to an external HD.

Can you please help?

A:Unable to update or run Advanced windows care

Advanced System Care Ultimate does, yes

Is this the one you are using?

Looking at online reviews and test scores, it's pretty poor..

I am using Windows XP.
I ran a scan with Windows Advanced Care 2 Personal and repaired all errors that were recommended. The computer was restarted and now I can't open any files. I am getting an error message: "Windows cannot open this file. To open this file, Windows needs to know what program created it." Even standard PC programs eg. Search, Windows media player, Windows games, etc. won't open. I can't even open Windows Advanced Care to try to restore.
Any solutions?

Hello SIW2.

Thank you for this; I just installed this to my Vista and I would like to know if this can be moved to another system once it has been installed to a certain machine. I'm building a new system and will no longer use this machine; will I still be able (on the new machine only) to use this version? I couldn't find any info at Giveaway OTD.

Thank you!

So did Microsoft just make a new offer? No, this is about something has been offering for quite awhile. You just have to know what to look for.You can still get your hands on a no-cost upgrade to Windows 10 by turning to a page for people who use assistive technologies.Here is the page you want:https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/accessibility/windows10upgradeThey use the term' 'assistive technologies' defined here:Assistive technology is an umbrella term that includes assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative devices for people with disabilities and also includes the process used in selecting, locating, and using them.So this has a very broad range. I could include family member with a condition that would benefit ma technology that helps or rehabilitates. Also, Microsoft not putting down hard rules and proo0f of need or use. Until further notice,  you will use your own good judgement.Side note. Rather than install Windows 10 as an upgrade to anything, just install it as fresh install on a new disk or a clean partition. A upgrade have fail due to software compatibly issues.

A:How to Get Free Windows 10 Today.

I'm sure there is a subset of people who were resistant to upgrading to Windows 10 only until Microsoft said "OK the free upgrade offer is over now" when they decided "Oh yes it is".Allegedly it requires a call to MS support at a certain point in the process now, as it was subject to abuse.
