IOBit's Advanced System Care.

It's like a dirty word in these forums. Frankly we never recommend IOBit software and you will see if you search the forums why. Too many users end up here reporting problems after using it or any registry cleaners or System Optimizer tools.

Your choice here. You seem happy with the free version so why upgrade?

I have to ask though. What problems do you have with viewing videos on YouTube? I don't have any problems and don't use ASC at all, nor anything of its kind. What does 300% faster mean? The videos play 3 x faster? I prefer my videos to play at normal speed.

Sorry about the profanity! Lol. I received an email fron Cnet offering this that the editor gave it 5 stars and had a lot more downloads than CCleaner so I just assumed it was a good thing. I also have CCleaner and have to admit after running and cleaning the registry with CC and had no problems. I ran ASC after that and it had to "repair" several hundred things!! I thought that was strange bc I've had CCleaner for years with no problem. So I have been suspisious of spyware or adware. Can you post a link so I can see what people said about it?
Thanks!

If you stop and think about it a second, you can see just how full of it
that claim is. How is any bit of software going to affect the speed of
your Internet connection? Seriously. No software will make a 56K modem
connection anything other than a 56K modem connection, end of story.
That applies to whatever kind of connection you have. It's a hardware
defined limitation, and no software will change that.

That is the
single biggest factor in the amount of buffering you see on youtube
videos. If your internet connection isn't fast enough, you'll get that.
No software is going to change it, and any software that claims
otherwise is making an outright false claim.
