Another fix all program - Unneeded & has the ability to really, really mess a PC up, & eventually will - CCleaner does all you want & use that with care too.

I would stay away from using this crap because all It will do is mess up your system. This is just another piece of garbage that developers are trying to rip people off and take your money.

The developer is selling the x32 and x64 builds as separate products, amazing greed indeed!

@ baki_princ
that was funny, if you prefer the more progress FF or Chrome versioning:
simply add 10 bringing this version to 15.20.50.475000

otherwise, a good utility properly priced although you can find free apps doing much the same tweaks.

still works flawlessly even in beta. The new GUI is ok for the main window (the white had a cleaner look) but I'm not into the office 07 look for the sub windows, this is a small complaint for a program that has been and continues to be one of the best apps for safely cleaning your system of useless files and controling certain aspects of your system like start up items

I have used Ace Utilities for several years. I am VERY satified with its performance. Stable as a rock. Easy to use. Superb support (seldom needed). A good support forum, populated by the program's developer and a large community of friendly, helpful fellow-users.

In all these years, AU has never fouled up my computer by its cleaning operations. I recommend it highly. (It's a 1-time payment, by the way.)

I have used Ace Utilities for over 2 years. It is superb. Absolutely safe (if you tell it you are a *neophyte*). Keeps my computer clean & speedy. Stringently maintained up-to-date & bug free by Ace Utilities. A favorite at Wilders & CastleCops forums.

HIGHLY recommended!

This is the cleaner I always keep coming back to. Tried many others but this beats them all when it comes to stability, ui, speed and ease of use. Never caused XP to crash on me and I use it almost daily for a couple of years.

dkg1,
AU saves every piece of deleted files and reg keys and you can easily restore them if something goes wrong.

System utilities like AU, are tools for advanced users thus can be dangerous if user doesn't know how to use them safely.
AceUtils registry cleaner is safer than most others tools of its kind. In my opinion, it is much less aggressive than it should be.
Tools that could not harm system are simply useless for an advanced user.

AceUtils is not perfect (yet) but is much better and more complete than most similar applications currently available.

Highly Recomended

I haven't tried Ace Utilities since version 2.41 because the Registry cleaner feature was too aggressive and hosed things up.
