Advance System Care is a computer tuneup application that can check your registry and fix any issues, evaluate and solve security threats, as well as manage startup entries.
Setting up this tool shouldn't take long. However, make sure that your PC is fitted with .NET Framework or it won't work properly.
Once fired up, the PC optimization program runs an initial scan, showing the number of total issues as well as descriptions for each type of problem.
When it comes to security threats, Advance System Care looks for programs that might leave your system vulnerable to attacks. It verifies files and folders, Windows services, startup and software entries, the registry, Internet Explorer URLs as well as Firefox and Chrome files and extensions.
As far as registry difficulties are concerned, the PC optimizer looks into those affecting system performance (e.g. font, help, shared DLLs, virtual devices), system or user software (e.g. file type and software paths, Start Menu and shortcuts), along with startup and uninstall issues (e.g. sound cards, Add or Remove Programs). A detailed report can be studied to find out the exact problematic registry entries as well as exported to file for closer inspection.
The applications which automatically run at system startup can be viewed in a separate section, where you can check out the software description, scan status, company and area, as well as remove any entry from the autorun sequence to improve Windows boot time. However, it's not possible to add new entries.
When it comes to program settings, you can exclude any categories from the scanning scope, prevent the computer optimization utility from running at Windows startup, set it to automatically perform scans on launch, and change the interface language. Also, you can protect registry entries and manage them later, schedule one-time or recurrent automatic scans, as well as back up and restore the registry.
Scan operations were conducted rapidly in our tests. On the other hand, while it's possible to disable startup entries in the unregistered edition, you cannot fix at least one issue. Other than that, Advance System Care doesn't bring anything new to the table. It mostly focuses on registry fixups.
