I wouldn't touch/trust it. The best tweaks are free.

the program home page lag my system... :lol:
ok... costing US$39.90... rather a expensive software, especially for tweaking...
actually there are freewares out there which perform the same functions or can even out perform than the components of Advanced Systems Optimizer...
i am sure that you will not use all the components in Advanced Systems Optimizer...

absolute krap! jack of all trades and master of none.. looks great but waste of disc space. ive heard bad things about this from quite a few people. read the reviews at download.com here
i had to reinstall outlook after using it and perfectdisc found 15percent of my disc was still fragmented after using the de-frag on systweak about eight times over 3weeks. my computer is only 3months old so I cant see as how systweak could have accomplished much in its defragging.
Im relatively new to computers and was running CCleaner at the same time- CCleaner found alot more on my sytem that systweak missed. I was a little concerned at first and almost uninstalled the wrong program. thankfully I started to read this forum and got rid of systweak immediately. you are better off with 3 or 4 freeware than 1 advanced optimizer krap!

Many thanks. I saw this product on the Top Ten Review site, so thought to give it a bash. Rather stick to freeware :P

Never trust those review sites. Ask knowledgable pc techs instead. :)
