System optimizers are important maintenance tools for any computer. Regardless of the configuration of your system, you can’t expect it to run fast and flawless forever, without some help on your part.
The best way to know when it is time for a “cleaning” and “repairing” session is to pay attention to the signs of “sickness”: if your PC starts to move way slower than usual, if you have to constantly reboot it because of crashes and freezes of all kinds, if you get error windows regularly, you should definitely use a system optimizer.
There are plenty of options to choose from, but you have to aim for the greatest value for the money. You don’t want to spend too much or get too little.
Advanced System Repair Pro
Advanced System Repair Pro was developed by a company based in California and it’s one of the best and most complex system repair apps you can find. Advanced System Repair Pro was developed exclusively for the Windows operating system and is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and Windows 10.
It is called “Pro” because it is the paid version of the software. There is also a free one available for download (simply called Advanced System Repair), but it limits you in the number of things you can do with it. The free version allows you to run a full system scan to identify all the issues in your computer. You can also browse the interface and its settings to get familiarized with the program. But if you want to repair any of the issues, you have to activate the software by upgrading to the Pro version and purchasing a license.
Advanced System Repair Pro offers 3 subscription plans: a subscription for 1 PC, priced at $29.95, a subscription for 1 PC with privacy controls ($39.95) and a subscription for an unlimited number of PCs, with privacy controls, priced at $49.95.
All plans include a 60-day money back guarantee.
What are the highlights of Advanced System Repair Pro?
Advanced System Repair Pro is a complex repair and optimizing kit that includes several useful features, such as:
- Junk cleaner that you can use to remove all the unnecessary files in your computer and free up disk space
- Malware removal tool that cleans your PC of malware such as viruses, spyware, trojans, worms and so on
- Disk defragmentation: defrags the hard drive, increasing its performance
- Privacy cleaner: helps you tweak the privacy settings of your computer making it more secure
- Registry cleaner that cleans and optimizes your Windows registry
- IE extensions: with this feature you can see all the add-ons installed in your web browsers; some of them might get installed without your permission or knowledge and they can affect the performance of your computer
- Uninstalling tool that helps you properly uninstall programs from your PC; it also helps you organize the programs and see which ones slow down the performance of your PC
- Startup optimizer: some programs are set by default to start with Windows even though they shouldn’t because you don’t use them all the time; the more programs open with Windows, the more time your computer needs to start Windows; with this feature, you can close the ones you don’t need to run at startup, improving the booting time of your PC
Overall Advanced System Repair Pro reviews were positive across the board, which was aligned with what our testing showed. Their combination of security, protection, privacy tools, as well as optimization provided a great value for their price.
