Advanced System Care Free is the free version of the commercial tool of the same name that is offered by Iobit. It is a system maintenance software that can be compared to similar tools in the niche including CCleaner, Microsoft OneCare, System Mechanic or Tuneup Utilities, but unlike them, it comes with a build-in security feature.
Advanced SystemCare Free (formerly Advanced WindowsCare Personal) has a one-click approach to help protect, repair, clean, and optimize your PC. CCleaner is possibly the most popular software in this niche. But Iobit argues that Advanced System Care has much more features than CCleaner. Here is a comparison chart given by Iobit
Advanced System Care divides the computer maintenance process in three different categories that are named Maintain Windows, Diagnose System and Utilities. Just click their respective tabs and you will see the functions on the right side of the window. Select the functions and click Scan, once it is complete, click Repair to fix them. You can also view further details about the errors by clicking the link while the scan is still in progress. Findings are displayed in red indicating problems and Megabytes that can be saved if the repair button is pressed.
