Whew. Ive been crazy busy lately, and have been meaning to throw up a post about this product for a few weeks. Its one of the latest freeware programs Ive added to my thumbdrive, which has come in quite handy for resolving various common PC problems via a point-and-click interface. If you regularly get calls from friends, family, co-workers, etc regarding their PC problems, you might want to consider this neat little freeware ap - Advanced WindowsCare V2 Personal
Advanced WindowsCare V2, made by IObit, looks to resolve issues that cause less than optimal performance in Windows based PCs. The personal version:
- Scans & removes spyware
- Blocks spyware from being installed
- Scans, cleans and fixes issues with the system registry
- Analyses your Windows system and optimizes various OS related settings
- Runs a startup scan and identifies all programs scheduled to start with Windows, provides a means of researching each program, disabling or deleting it
- Performs a privacy sweep to clean activity history and surfing traces
- Scans and cleans temporary files
What I like most about this program is its very simple interface - Start, Scan, Repair. While a useful tool for even advanced PC users, its also simple enough for the novice user. In every case where Ive used it or recommended it, Advanced WindowsCare has produced positive results (quicker boot/shutdowns, improved performance, resolving Windows anamolies or spyware issues other programs have missed, etc ).
Just my two cents of course, but if youre scratching your head as to why your PC seems to have slowed down so much lately, you may want to give this one a shot.
