    "Good program, but not dependable."

    June 13, 2014  |   By Jim Brunner

    Version: Glary Utilities 5.1.0.4

    Pros

    I like everything about this program. Does it everything great with one exception. I installed Glary because my former "download informer" was Download Now, and I was having the issue of their downloads, showing up randomly several days after I updated the programs called out. In other words, rather than helping simplify my job, it made it more difficult.

    Cons

    Your program is really not dependable to the point of utter frustration. I have a program called "Should I remove it?", which I have been using for a long time. It is invaluable. Glary Utilities keeps showing this program as needing an update no matter how many times I update it. I am about to get rid of Glary for the same thing.

    Summary

    There MUST be a reputable, efficient and accurate program updater out there.... but it doesn't look like Glary is the one. But, then either is Download Now.!!! I KNOW this won't get printed....but just in case you REALLY want to do a good job, more than you want to hide the mickeymouse job you are now doing......there still may be a chance.

    "30% DISCOUNT COUPON for PRO EDITION"

    May 30, 2014  |   By LizaJanair

    Version: Glary Utilities 5.0.0.1

    Pros

    Many needed PC maintenance functions. Super easy to use, 1 click to clean up registry, resolve shorcuts that point to nothing, clean up dangerous file in startup, deletes temporary files, and seeks and kills spyware, all automatically.

    And I've found 30% discount for Professional Edition here:
    www.programdiscounts.com/glary_utilities_pro.htm

    Cons

    Nothing bad to say.

    "Paid versions have nothing on Glary!"

    May 22, 2014  |   By contentwithgod

    Version: Glary Utilities 5.0.0.1

    Pros

    NO spam, no hassles & delivers beyond what it says! I've used Glary DAILY for 4+ years & don't know what I ever did without it.

    Cons

    I can't believe this is the only complaint I can muster, but perhaps they do version updates a little too frequent.

    Summary

    Indeed, it's not a substitution for an Antivirus Program (& not intended to be).. but Antivirus Programs are also no substitution for what Glary accomplishes. I had Kaspersky Antivirus, then Norton.. which I have now & Norton does a good job of blocking malicious attacks. But even with the Antivirus programs, I start noticing slower pc performance almost daily & a quick 1-Click Glary Scan will find hundreds or more, damaged files, fragmented, registry files dragging speed down.. & remove them.. and WHAM, it's back to normal performance! Even with the best antivirus programs out there, you need GLARY!

    "Set restore point first!"

    April 30, 2014  |   By crabboy

    Version: Glary Utilities 4.10.0.100

    Pros

    I have had good results from versions 2 & 3 on XP. Glary provides many useful fea`tures.

    Cons

    I have had good results from versions 2 & 3 on XP, but nothing but trouble with version 4 on Win7. It might just be my setup, but be prepared to revert if everything goes hooey.

    Summary

    YMMV. A good program, but be ready to pull this off if it conflicts with your Windows 7.

    Version: Glary Utilities 4.9.0.99

    Pros

    no pros this is a bad program

    Cons

    caused a continuous loop on startup

    Summary

    I couldn't even start in safe mode. I had to purchase a boot disk program to repair it and the jury is still out on if that will work or not.

    "Free - OK Product"

    March 29, 2014  |   By Darren Dheilly

    Version: Glary Utilities 4.8.0.97

    Pros

    Free clean up. The "1-Click Maintenance" works well and quick. The Puma Update can be disabled if so desired - that was good too...
    And every version get a little better. 1/2 of it works fine

    Cons

    The free version is Good for "1-Click Maintenance", but a lot of the "Advanced Tools", do not work ; Like I tried the reg cleanup, it ran and stopped at 99 %. I also tried the tried the "Privacy - wipe disk space", it ran and stopped at 99 % too, The disk defrag ran and finished, but it was all messed up and did not look clean, (I prefer Auslogic Defrag). The System Information was all wrong, the Windows one is right on. (Who uses the old ECC Ram Chips anymore ?) It did not even mention my HP Dual Core. A lot of the "Advanced Tools" ran and stopped at 99 %.

    Summary

    So for a Simple and a quick cleanup is OK. The "Advanced Tools" do not turn my crank, but I use the free version, so maybe the paid version works, but who knows. So what do I expect for free - It was OK. If Glary wants my credit card they need to fix up the "Advanced Tools". Maybe it is my Vista Business OS UAC (or my Service pack 2) that halts all the Advanced Tools, or maybe it is another one of those "Come-a-long's. The prior Glary Advanced tools did not start at all. These ones do, but do not finish - I waited a 1/2 hour.
