I have been using Advanced SystemCare for a long time and it works well. Although it is free but I still trust its perfomance. While I am warned by norton to uninstall it for quite a time, I am surprised because they were never incompatible before. Is this OK? Do I have to uninstall Advanced SystemCare? :thumbsup:

This should probablymoved to the security section. You shouldn't have two anti virus ptograms running as they will conflict.

Advanced System Care is not an antivirus, so it should work fine along regular AV program.
There are two issues regarding ASC, though...
1. It has registry cleaner section and the registry is better left alone. Here is why: http://miekiemoes.blogspot.com/2008/02/reg...weaking_13.html
2. ASC is created iObit company, which has rather questionable ways of conducting its business. See IOBit Steals Malwarebytes' Intellectual Property: http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=29681

We had an article a while ago on the BC main page discussing item #2 that Broni references.
It is for that reason that I quit using ASC

Personally I did not think it did a very good job. If you watch the malware scan, it checks for very minimal items.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Hey

ASC is not a antivirus program, it is for windows optimization. This free software has a good performance, I do not think you, William is urged to uninstall it.

I have had Advanced System Care and uninstalled it.

Any Program that attempts to clean the registry,is not good.

Todays Large Hard Drives really don't need Registry Cleaners,IMO

Hi Guys, I think you needn't uninstall Advanced SystemCare. I didn't use Advanced SystemCare, but I use Norton. One of my friend recommended me Advanced SystemCare. I think I will try it in future.
I just happened to see an article about the compatibility issues between Norton and Advanced SystemCare. It says: According to IObit's iterative and serious tests and feedback from millions of users, there is absolutely no compatibility problem!
If you want to check the original article, please click http://newsblaze.com/story/20100519091950z...b/topstory.html

Incase if you want to use Advanced SystemCare along with Norton, when you install the Norton product, you will get an option to skip the "Incompatible application detected" message. Then you can continue with the installation.

I hope it's useful for you. :thumbsup:
