    "Supereb Product"

    June 16, 2010  |   By kelly_ander

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.1.648.6846

    Pros

    Driver updater & system protector are the finest tools in ASO.
    I have never come across such genuine results as shown by Driver Updater.
    The daily updates of system protector are really too good.

    Cons

    Have not come across any yet.

    Summary

    It is a great utility which helps to keep system up to date and cleans all spywares and threats. It is a treat to use this product.

    "Not a one off price - Requires more cash after a year"

    May 17, 2010  |   By bbach

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 2.01.4

    Pros

    Does a fair job with a simple to use intrerface

    Cons

    WARNING!!! Take care ? it is no longer a one off fee. I have had ASO since 2007 and it suddenly stopped working in 2010. When I sent a note to support they tell me that they now want me to pay another $18 plus $16 per year.

    Summary

    You can never be sure when this product will stop working and demand more dollars from you. Avoid.

    "Unimpressive"

    April 14, 2010  |   By geonk

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.0.683

    Pros

    Compared to other titles in this category, few. That's not to say that it's horrible, but it in now way stands out!

    Cons

    Some modules have problems with 64-bit Windows. Supposedly there is a bug fix coming out "real soon". Which brings me to the worst part: abysmally slow technical support! Fixed sized user interface for at least some modules. I didn't use every one.

    Summary

    I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate. One of things I noticed right away when I started using this was that the Startup Manager failed to report ALL of my 64-bit startup software. This is, in my opinion, a FATAL error! It's also inexcusable for any software that claims to have full 64-bit support. To make matters worse, I reported this to them FIVE WEEKS ago. It took at least three weeks, and another email, just to get a response. The response said the bug fix would be out in a week. That is, last week. I've stopped using the software until it's fixed. How could I possibly trust SYSTEM software that misses more than half the software that starts every time I boot my system?!?
    Finally, there is the issue of the user interface. At least some (I don't remember if they all do or not) of the applications modules that I've used run in windows that can't be resized. In my opinion, that is a mark of laziness on the part of the programmer. What reason could there possibly be for me to have to scroll back and forth in a tiny little box (on my 24", 1080p monitor!) I have uncountable examples of similar software that lets you resize the window so that you can see all of the information at once. There's no excuse whatsoever for doing otherwise! I'm not someone who goes in for flashy UIs at the expense of functionality. I do, on the other hand, think that any software that fails to take into account how difficult or easy it is for the user to view important data is not worth my time!

    "THIS PROGRAM DOES MORE TO HARM THAN HELP YOUR COMPUTER"

    March 21, 2010  |   By bobsagetfullhouse

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.0.683

    Pros

    The GUI is about the only nice thing about the program.

    Cons

    -The "fixes" it finds are for the most part working or legitimate registry entries or files that do not need to be deleted.

    -Has the potential to incapacitate your machine.

    Summary

    This is a terribly coded program. I ran the registry, and system clean up tools. The registry cleanup tool ended up deleting a bunch of important video codecs (and probably a bunch of other needed entries I haven't encountered yet). The system clean up tool listed a bunch of pictures, important documents and even important system files as "junk." Just about the only good thing about this program is the GUI. Everything else has the potential to either delete an important file on your machine, or do harm to your OS file structure. I do not recommend this program at all. It does more harm than good.

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.0.683

    Pros

    I really like Driver Updater and System Protector very much.

    Cons

    I am still in search off :-)

    Summary

    I enjoy using this product, it has not only optimized my system for the best use, but it has also left a smile on my face. I have recommended this product to many people.

    I want to say that this is one of the best optimization tool and when I see such negative comment about my favorite product I hate it :-(

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.0.683

    Can't think of any cons. It is an outstanding product.

    Summary

    It is simply an amazing software so many utilities packaged in a single software. It really work well for my laptop. It prooved to be a lifesaver for my laptop. Everyone should try this software once.

    "Beware! Avoid spyware scanner."

    March 14, 2010  |   By best1syn2oil

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.0.683

    Pros

    This has a great driver updater. That's all I use it for.

    Cons

    ASO is too intrusive, tries to do too much and does most of it poorly. Avoid scanning for malware as it finds many false positives, some of which are in fact system files. It found a trojan in Acrotray, and an ocx from 1999 XP install was evil.

    Summary

    If it wasn't for the efficient driver update service, I would most definitely dump this. Spyware scanner is dangerous, and I don't trust the registry cleaner to have a proper ignore list.

    "Great Product!!"

    March 3, 2010  |   By martinlanford

    Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.0.683

    Pros

    I am very impressed and happy to use this product.

    Cons

    The Startup Manager takes too long, which is sometimes irritating.

    Summary

    The Driver Updater is an excellent tool provided in Advanced System Optimizer 3. It has become extremely simple to update all the outdated drivers. Additionally, the feature of taking the backup at the time of installation is very good. It gives you the facility to take the backup and restore if any problem occurs.
    The support provided is extremely good; support team takes great pain in solving the problems faced by the customers and provides the best resolution.
