Best Product for Windows Computer Maintenance
One of my favorite products for cleaning a computer, specifically a Windows machine, running in tip-top shape is Advanced System Care.
Advanced System Care, from IObit.com, is an all-in-one solution for keeping your computer running at peak levels. It offers features such as malware protection, malware removal, spyware protection, spyware removal, and tune-up options like memory, disk, and file structure. The product also optimizes hard drives, keeps system memory clean and stable and removes infections of all sorts.
This is not to say you should not have an antivirus, you do. However, I found that the standard Windows Defender works great alongside Advanced System Care.
Advanced System Care is easy to install and easy to set up. Below are settings that I recommend to you keep your computer tuned-up automatically, without any issues whatsoever.
- Enable all advanced system care functions except CPU monitoring.
- Go through each setting and make sure anything “Auto” is turned on.
- Be careful of anything marked “Secure File Delete” or the like, unless you are a CIA agent or something! If you are concerned about deleting files, then use it, just understand that deleted is now deleted FOREVER!
The cost of Advanced System Care is approximately $30 for 3 licenses, per year. They do offer three license packs, occasionally for around $30. Below is a link to a three pack offer just for my viewers.
If you have a computer that runs all the time, such as a desktop, the auto-clean should work fine. For laptop users who turn their computer off when not in use, may have to tune up the computer manually, every now and then. You just open advanced system care and choose “Scan”, which is a large button in the center of the interface. If you are ready to turn off the computer after the scan, simple choose “Fix and Shutdown”. Choose other options for what suits your situation. Some cleaning (i.e. registry) requires a reboot. If you’re taking the time to scan, it’s probably a good time to reboot your computer, anyway.
I have been using Advanced System Care for years. My computer almost never is exposed to malware and I rarely have problems. I’ve installed it on parent’s computers, friends and neighbor’s computers, as well. If you’re the local tech-guy (or gal) for your tribe, perhaps get people started on Advanced System Care.
On this blog, I try to only recommend things I use and enjoy in life. Some things may be “One of the best” I’ve used, so I’ll recommend as a comparison. For this product, it is simply the best I’ve used and kept my computer running issue-free for years. In fact, I bought a MacBook Pro in 2015. Although, it seems to be a great product, I’ve since gone back to Windows only. Why? Because, I just don’t have the issues on the PC of yesteryear.
