I downloaded Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 6 and found a Serial for it from /watch?v=V5t06-OjTXw and it actually registered. It is good until November. Does anybody know anything about Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 6? I deleted all of the other protection I had on my computer so now all I have is Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 6. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Advanced SystemCare is an optimization suite and registry cleaner by IObit that purports to improve performance, make repairs and tune up a computer.

Advanced SystemCare Free...Why waste money on expensive "registry cleaners" to fix your PC when Advanced SystemCare Free will repair, tune, and maintain it for you for free

Advanced SystemCare with Antivirus incorporates the same optimization/registry cleaning features alongside its anti-virus capabilities.

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons.
Please read: Why you should not use Registry Cleaners and Optimization Tools


Further, if you downloaded a serial key to unlawfully use this (or any product), you should know the practice of using torrents, cracking tools, keygens, warez or any pirated software is not only considered illegal activity but it is a serious security risk.

Cracking applications are used for illegally breaking (cracking) various copy-protection and registration techniques used in commercial software. These programs may be distributed via Web sites, Usenet, and P2P networks.

TrendMicro Warning

...warez and crack web pages are being used by cybercriminals as download sites for malware related to VIRUT and VIRUX. Searches for serial numbers, cracks, and even antivirus products like Trend Micro yield malcodes that come in the form of executables or self-extracting files...quick links in these sites also lead to malicious files. Ads and banners are also infection vectors...

Keygen and Crack Sites Distribute VIRUX and FakeAV

...warez/piracy sites ranked the highest in downloading spyware...just opening the web page usually sets off an exploit, never mind actually downloading anything. And by the time the malware is finished downloading, often the machine is trashed and rendered useless.

University of Washington spyware study

...One of the most aggressive and intrusive of all bad websites on the Internet are serial, warez, software cracking type sites...they sneak malware onto your system...Where do trojan viruses originate? One of the biggest malware distributors on the Internet are serial/warez/code cracking sites.

Bad Web Sites: Malware

...a staggering 59% of the key generators and crack tools downloaded from P2P networks represent a security liability since they contain malicious and unwanted code. "25% of the Web sites we accessed offering counterfeit product keys, pirated software, key generators or crack tools attempted to install either malicious software or potentially unwanted software. A significant number of these Web sites attempted to install malicious or unwanted code...In addition to the peer-to-peer networks, 11% of the key generators and crack tools downloaded from Web sites were also plagued by malicious and unwanted software.

Microsoft Reveals the Risks of Using Pirated XP and Office
Whatever You Do, Do Not Download Windows 7 Via Torrent Sites

When you use these kind of programs, be forewarned that some of the worst types of malware infections can be contracted and spread by visiting crack, keygen, warez and other pirated software sites. In many cases, those sites are infested with a smörgåsbord of malware and an increasing source of system infection. Those who attempt to get software for free can end up with a computer system so badly damaged that recovery is not possible and it cannot be repaired. When that happens there is nothing you can do besides reformatting and reinstalling the OS.

Bleeping Computer does not condone or assist with the use of crack and keygen tools or any issues that arise from trying to get them to work. The discussion or use of such programs is a violation of our BC Discussion/Message Boards Rules.

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.

Oh. Shoot. Thank you. I did not realize. Please don't ban me. I just want something that will take care of my computer and there are so many options out there. It is confusing. I don't know what to use.

Everyone starts as a beginner, and it's natural to assume that many of the tools advertised online are legit, particularly if they are sold by a Microsoft Partner. But, that isn't an automatic guarantee of effectiveness. quietman7 is a Microsoft MVP, and that is a big deal. You can read about the award here: http://mvp.microsoft.com/en-us/default.aspx

Just to keep all this in perspective, I've been a Microsoft Partner for something like 15 years, and have never been an MVP. I'm new to the forum, and I don't know everyone here, but Platypus has also been an MVP, and I'm sure there are plenty of others. Being an MVP doesn't make anyone infallible, but it gives some weight to their words.
