I have used Ace Utilities for years. It works great. The Auto-Star Manager can't be beat. I've tried to find a freeware program that compares to Ace but there aren't any. This feature makes it worth the money. I also use the Registry cleaner and have never had a problem with it. The other feature I like is the free space wipe. Which you can set to do a single wipe,3 wipes, 7 wipes, or Gutmann which is 35 wipes of your free space. Just one thing it takes a long time to do multiple wipes.
I've owned this product since 2004 (I've upgraded it to the System TuneUp version since then). It does a very good job, but you have to really watch it sometimes.
It's been known to delete stuff from my registry and my PC that it considers temp or folders that aren't needed, but actually are necessary to some of my graphics software. I've had to re-install some programs after I used it to fix errors.
On the plus side, it does catch more than my Tune-Up Utilities. But, I feel more comfortable using Tune-Up, just because I don't want to weed through all the scan results Ace comes up with (just in case).
I mainly keep it as a backup for stuff that I know I really want to get rid of completely. Hope that helps!
I have used Ace Utilities for several years to maintain my registry and keep my computer free of trash. It has kept my computer clean and fast. It has never caused a malfunction. It backs up every registry change it makes, but I have never needed to do a restore.
There have been several updates to this program since I bought it several years ago. There has been no additional charge since I bought it. What a bargain!
I've been using this program for about 2-3 years now and have yet to encounter a problem with it. The great thing about this simple to use powerful and accurate piece of software is that it is designed to fix issues that are constantly reappearing. With all the other "Tweak n' clean" software you download them once, change all your "tweaks" then never use that part of the huge program again. Ace does the day-to-day tasks brilliantly an with ease, it does miss a few registry problems like invalid keys and keys pointing to a non-existent file but there's always specialist cleaners for that "registry medic was good for that but i haven't seen much of it recently. The small amount of things Ace Utilities misses isn't that important they don't do any harm being there. This program lives up to it's name "Ace" keep at it AceLogix.
