    ## TEST ##

    I made this App portable to Test the Internal Apps as Stand-alones.

    This is aimed MAINLY at Peeps with Little knowledge about Systems.
    I didn't Install, So no Reg keys were Generated... HOWEVER..!!
    I have a system Monitor, which wouldn't Shut TF up.
    That told me Something was Active In my System Without Launching Anything. Unpacking This App was the Trigger (without getting techy).

    You have "2" RUN folders in the Registry At...
    1) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    2) HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    I launched "ONE" app, & a key was generated in the HKCU (2) folder.

    NOW... If I throw this App into my Shredder... (& I will).. ~_^
    That key Will Still be there. & every Boot will Activate it.

    It may be wise for Anyone Using this App which has 42 x .EXE files in the
    main folder (when portable)
    - Check their Registry At the 2 locations I listed Above.
    - Check Your "Running" Services.
    - Call-up msconfig & check all is OK there..??

    I didn't check Any further than (1 app), which remains Un-Named
    In respect to the Guys who Value Glary Utilities.....

    I have tried all kinds of all in one utility programs like mcafee, symantec's 360 and let me tell you that both of these programs don't offer what Glary Utilities has to offer. Glary Utilities is faster more reliable then then both of them. Norton 360 is terrible and should be stopped from being developed. Mcafee software used to great top of the line but recently It is just like norton 360 terrible. Glary Utilities are so much better simply because the utilities are simple to use. CCleaner is good but I tried that program as well found It to be even worse then everyone else It kept lagging down my system making It run too slow Glary Utilities doesn't do that.

    Reviewing 3.2.0.101 Beta (May 2, 2013)

    As with the rest of the multi-clean & optimise programs about lots of the utilities on offer are available in Windows or by enabling GOD made, the defragger is very good & extremely fast with a full boot defrag, but the cleaners are no better than CCleaner with winapp2 enabled & not as thorough.

    The registry cleaner found a worrying amount of so called bad entries & it wasn't easy to verify whether they were OK or not, my experience with Windows leaves me highly suspicious of the value of registry cleaning as I've seen to many broken PC's & if in doubt leave well alone.

    An improvement on version 2.x but you really can live without this program or others like it - If you really, really must clean the registry use the free Wise reg cleaner which is the safest I've seen - All in all though one of the better utility programs around ~

    New beta is step backward from simple and easy to look application it is now. I guess they are trying to be edgy like others.

    Limited cleaning facilities, some of the tools on offer could mess up your system.

    You really don't need this all-in-one or any so called utility system & there are lots around. 90% of the tools on offer are available in other parts of Windows esp. if you enable 'GOD mode'.

    if you want to clean your system use CCleaner & Wise Disc Cleaner both free & without bloat & unneeded vapour-ware add-ons.
