The Web is full of numerous optimization utilities that promise to improve the performance of computers by cleaning unnecessary files and speeding them up. However, a prevalent number of those products turn out to be not what users bargained for. Plus, developers often distribute their products via bundled downloads, which means users may unknowingly download unwanted software. Advanced System Optimizer is a PC optimization tool developed by Systweak Inc. It has been around for quite some time.
Its first version was called Advanced Vista Optimizer and was released back in 2004, and received positive feedback. Unfortunately, its newest versions (Advanced System Optimizer v3.5) often are distributed as additional components, visible under the advanced installation option, in software packages and are most likely ad-supported. Thus, Advanced System Optimizer may just be another potentially unwanted application on your computer.
Advanced System Optimizer 3.5 Characteristics
The Windows optimizer is a legitimate software product. However, it may cause issues on the system, rather than fix them. Problems may even occur while trying to uninstall the program, as reported by users. After locating the optimizer in Control Panel and clicking Uninstall, an error may show up stating that the program cannot be uninstalled because it doesn’t exist. Nonetheless, it may keep running on the machine.
Users may also want to know that the latest version of Advanced System Optimizer is predominantly distributed via packed (bundled) downloads. When in a hurry, users often don’t pay attention to what they agree when they click the ‘next’ button. Opting out of the automated installer may just save them the trouble – additional software pieces can be deselected.
Also, keep in mind that only the free trial of the program is usually included in bundled packages. Once installed, the utility may continuously scan the system and inform the user about various issues in the attempt to make him pay for the whole version. As of July 22, 2015, Advanced System Optimizer 3.5 is sold at the prize of $39,99. The offer includes another software product called Systweak PhotoStudio v2.1.
Uninstall Advanced System Optimizer v3.5
If experiencing trouble uninstalling the software via Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features, using an uninstallation wizard may be tried. After the program is removed, scanning the system via professional anti-spyware software is advisory. Since such products are typically distributed through bundling, more potentially unwanted programs may have sneaked unnoticed.
