and this is better than the free Advanced System Care how?

Frankly, I'd save your money.

I use AVG security (free) and it's great - much better than the £39 McAffee & Norton scamns that get posted.

But if you use AVG, you can get one 'tune up' free each year ... and frankly, that's enough. It doesn't do miracles, but it does clear a bit of clutter. Certainly no reasion to spend money on it.

Use the sample for free, then uninstall via control panel - they'll offer again next year.

I'd like to purchase this, but every time I try to order, my PC keeps freezing up and I can't press the purchase button. Any advice?

You would know the answer between free and premium if you ever used Advanced System Care Pro which i used.

"TUNE UP" software whether it be AVG or that TERRIBLE advanced system care, dosnt help you computer perform faster, and is of no real benifit, if you want a program to clean up clutter id recommend CCleaner from preform.com its free and very simple to use

I have 2 apps installed for cleanup/tuneup.
The first is CCleaner, which will delete anything you not needed (also use secure delete so cant be recovered after you have deleted it).
Advanced System Care, runs in the background.

Also helps to run disk defragmenter every few months. I run it over night.

I guess I'm a bit of a tech head. I take an unhealthy interest in these things heh but I don't see any problem with software like this. With a billion people using Windows, can anyone really say that software that has a suite of tools will or won't help anyone? I don't think you can. Silly to even try.

My own personal way of keeping my PC going is to just Google my way out of any problem that turns up rather than rely on a lot of installed tools that may or may not do anything. I do have autoruns its a nice free thing for plucking out stuff that demands to start up with your PC when you have no use for it doing that and the software itself doesn't offer a way to stop it. (msconfig should never be used for this, it creates more problems than it solves, disable something in msconfig and if you later remove the software, it won't be removed properly from the registry) But really PC's are so fast today that I don't think it makes any real noticeable difference whether ipod service starts up or not. These things just annoy me

Totally agree with that statement, save yourself some money and use CCleaner, I've been using it for years and never had a problem.

Microsoft Security Wssentials - free - for virus protection
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - free - as added tool which picks up registry hacks etc from unscrupulous installs (like websearch/toobars) full scan once a month for frequent user
CCleaner (as previously commented) also includes added tools like registry cleaner/startup/system restore cleaner)
If you want a free pc optimiser Wise Registry Cleaner - free - not only cleans your registry but also will optimise your pc
CCleaner does not clean windows installed but not longer required updates and other clutter - if you are short on space or want to get rid of all unnecessary Wise Disk Cleaner will clear more - run also the slimming down tool (but don't check help files/wallpaper if you need/use them)
Windows Defragmenter does a basic job it defrags all split files - there are many free alternatives but my preference is Mydefrag running the System Disk Monthly - which sorts files during the defrag process into an order which gives a slight performance enhancement in boot times

but what do I know? I had 22 pcs + 1server to mantain and keep upto date for 2 years plus fix other pc's/laptops in person and over the interweb thingy

Also it's a good idea to keep all your software, where financially possible, up to date - as such I use CNet's Download App + Filehippo Update Checker both free (but beware to remove them from startup as you won't need them every boot)

Enjoy and please feel free to comment or troll or just give your own personal negative feedback/criticism of my own choices.. the thing is it will be wasted because I've heard it all before and everyone is an expert - I will not be back here to reply... enough said
