Superior System Care: Is it actually that unhealthy?
I simply completed studying a discussion board response about Superior System care from the web site bleepingcomputer.com and what I learn stunned me as I have been an AVC consumer for years.

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/572589/what-think-about-advanced-system-care-good-or-not-good/

Apparently, Superior System Care is unhealthy on your laptop, as are most “PC-Boosting” applications on the market. Evidently most applications on AVC are ineffective as home windows has a free, higher model that comes put in or the applications are harmful, like registry cleaner. The folks on this web site appear to be knowledgable, however I am attempting to not get into the behavior of believing the very first thing I learn, so I would just like the opinions and experiences from extra people who find themselves extra knowledgable about these things than I’m. That and the data on the discussion board is 4 years previous, so I do not understand how present it’s.

– Do you suppose AVC price it or is it a rip-off?

– Is it true that registry cleaners aren’t essential and that they’ll damage your laptop in the long term?

– Would it not be higher to simply use the applications that come put in on Home windows 10 or one other free program as a substitute of paying IObit cash for AVC?

Be happy to disregard the questions and converse your thoughts. I am actually focused on studying extra about this matter and higher methods to maintain my laptop.

Thanks!

I have been utilizing CCleaner because it got here out (a few years) and by no means had a problem. Registry cleaner has a backup that may return the registry to the state it was earlier than cleansing however once more, by no means had to make use of it. Used to do it manually within the previous days however takes too lengthy.

Thanks each on your enter! I am amazed that issues did not get tousled previously with me utilizing registry cleaner practically each couple of days. Home windows Defender will not activate, now, due to one thing I modified in ASC, however fortunately I am already planning on reinstalling home windows 10.

ASC might be not as horrible as I am making it, however I do get the sensation that they are dishonest. At all times attempting to trick us into shopping for extra of their product by making issues look real or main us someplace we did not anticipate. I learn they even stole code from Malwarebytes, however that is simply hypothesis for all I do know.

The writer of this thread has indicated that this put up solutions the unique matter.

Wow! A kind of uncommon “tri-fecta” posts I hardly ever ever see…. Very informative, humorous and enjoyable to learn! I do not suppose I may’ve gotten a greater reply than this one. I problem anybody to do higher than this man!

Anyhow, thanks a lot for taking the time to jot down all this! It was actually useful! You additionally put phrases to one thing I’ve recognized for some time, however by no means actually knew why or how: the way in which software program firms function. It is actually nice to have the ability to determine these things once I see it motion now.

I’ve a couple of questions as follow-up for this (directed in the direction of everybody, too):

– Whenever you say “basic AV/anti-malware tools” are speaking about issues like AntiMalwarebytes and Norton Antivirus?

– Is Home windows Defender ok for an anti-virus program (is it even an anti-virus program within the first place?)? What are your suggestions for AV/anti-malware applications if Home windows Defender is not ok?

– What’s good web hygiene? I am certain I do know however I’ve by no means heard it spoken as “internet hygiene”.

– What are some suggestions for instruments that delete monitoring cookies?

Thanks once more!

I attempted ASC and did not see any actual enhancements. It is fairly simple to get better information even with a format or stuff deleted from the garbage can. I do use CCleaner for the drive wipe to overwrite the free area and thats about it.
