Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 8 promises enhanced security with no performance penalty
Two months after unveiling Advanced SystemCare Free 8.0, IObit has released Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 8.0.1, a major new update for its top-of-the-line system optimization, maintenance and security tool.
Ultimate users gain the same improvements and new features as found in the Free and Pro versions of the software, but also benefit from enhanced real-time protection from worms, Trojans and other malware, as well as new and improved browser security tools.
It also adds a number of new browser-centric features. A Protect component blocks browser homepage and search engine changes, plus provides protection during surfing to help reinforce overall system security.
Users also gain a new Plugin/Toolbar Cleaner that removes unwanted and potentially malicious browser plugins and toolbars, while a Browser Anti-Tracking feature promises to prevent privacy leaks.
Users also gain an improved Privacy Sweep tool that now supports over 400 programs, while the database for spyware removal, Registry fix and surfing protection has also been expanded. Also added to version 8 is a Software Updater that alerts users to updates to other installed programs.
Performance is improved through a number of new enhancements, many of which have already debuted in the Free and Pro versions of the software. Users can now maximize the UI and change the program skin with their own choice of background, for example.
A new Performance Monitor tool supports screenshot capture and one-click boost functions. Similarly, a new Startup Manager offers a one-click button for speeding up Windows boot times too.
Users can now quickly set default programs via the Default Programs Tool, while the Disk Optimization tool has been rebuilt to support multi-disk defrag and SSD optimization.
A free 30-day trial of Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 8.0.1 is available now for Windows PC. You can purchase a single year license for three PCs for just $19.99 through the Downloadcrew Software Store, an exclusive 60 percent saving on the MSRP of $49.99.
