BC has previous threads discussing Advanced System Care - these are a few that a quick search in Bleeping Computer turns up:

TLDR: Don't use any software that claims to "optimize" your computer.

As for real time performance monitoring, I have seen some people creating their own meters with Rainmeter. Not sure how that works though.

Advanced SystemCareFree is a suite of protection, performance and privacy tools by IObit. It provides basic protection from security threats, basic system optimization and auto clean for privacy security when logging on. Optimization includes a registry cleaner that purports to improve performance, make repairs and tune up a computer.

Advanced SystemCare PRO is a more comprehensive optimization suite by IObit with additonal features to include enhanced malware protection, system tuneup, deep registry cleaning, an Internet booster and an assortment of "Smart Tools" for computer maintenance.

Advanced SystemCare Ultimate incorporates the same comprehensive optimization suite with additional security protection which includes BitDefender antivirus technology and the IObit anti-malware engine.

The optimization and performance improvement claims made by such software vendors are borderline scams. There is no statistical evidence to back such claims. Advertisements to do so are a marketing ploy intended to goad users into using an unnecessary and potential dangerous product. I would not trust any results such programs detect as problematic or needing repair nor recommend using the options to fix them. For other user comments...read iOBit Advanced System Care, Good or Bad.

Further, these types of junk optimization programs are often considered Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) so they may be detected or even removed by some security scanners which specifically look for PUPs and adware. IOBIT was placed into the Installers Hall of Shame for bundling toolbars.


Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons.

Why you should not use Registry Cleaners and Optimization Tools


Be sure to read Microsoft's support policy for the use of registry cleaning utilities in that topic...Microsoft does not support the use of registry cleaners.

As for Advanced SystemCare's security and malware protection...many folks are unaware of their past dubious history of stealing from Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Although, the Malwarebytes team no longer has an issue with IObit, the vendor's past history and dubious methods would not warrant a recommendation from me to use or trust their software.
