Does anything BUT care and its online installer tries to hijack your browser, stay far away from this piece of SystemPlague.
Out of curiosity, I tried getting it, so I went to their homepage and saw that I need to download an online installer.
That never sits too well with me, so I submitted it to ThreatExpect.
It came back with some interesting results. According to them, the online installer calls "api.mybrowserbar.com" for whatever reason, so naturally upon seeing these results I went back and launched the online installer again to search if there's any mentioning of "mybb" somewhere in the installer.
Sadly there wasn't, not even a single hint that it might try and contact that address nor was there any button that allowed my to disable it.

micaofboca has either been bribed or works for IOBIT, although according to him/her after the advice not to use two modules it's difficult what there is left to rave about? Interesting that's it's his/her only review also - No professional would ever use this for anything, looks good but that's as far as it goes. No stars.
(I get paid for faffing with PC's & I certainly don't use it)

Advanced System Care is simply the GREATEST tool. ANyone who complains about the Malware scan should just NOT use it and just use Microsoft Security Essentials (or Avast! or AVG). Anyone who has improperly deleted files they need simply should not use that function which is reserved only for PROfessionals (meaning paid-for helpers). But this remarkable software has SO MUCH to offer it's beyond belief. Sure, it should be used in conjunction with CCleaner, and proper Firewalls and Updates should be monitored. But Advanced System Care is the most valuable multi toolbox offered anywhere anytime anyplace. It's not only helped me repair my computer but has also taught me the ins and outs of computer anatomy. Five stars doesn't even suggest how terrific this invaluable software is. I LOVE IT !!

If it says IObit, avoid it like the plague

crap, use CCleaner, Xleaner or maybe SlimCleaner....
Download for 126.96.36.199 is corrupted! Got it twice, got same "corrupt file" error from both copies.
I just ran Advanced SystemCare 188.8.131.522, database 5/29/10. It cleaned out the entire non-system drive. Do not run this program if you do not have a recent backup
After using ASC PRO ( up to V.3.30), as well as many other "cleaner" programs, I find it to be a reliable program that can only be made better if its developers keep it from becoming tooooo big, and focus their attention on the basic need for good file and reg cleaning.
What users need to realize is that ASC, like any similar program, can be very destructive if you don't make a point to set it up according to your system needs, most important is choosing options and using the "ignore list' in order to avoid loosing unprotected files/reg entries.
This is often why people blame the program whenever something goes horribly wrong. I've had this argument many times with others that feel that the software should be non-destructive if you don't mess with the options menu, but that's simply impossible considering that all systems are basically unique as far as software/hardware configurations are concerned. The point is that if you find it too complex to set up then use a safer & less effective program. like that you won't have any major problems.
As a result, you have to do a bit of work in order to tweak any program that you need to work well for you.
