Now, ​I will go through the different aspects of IObit Advanced SystemCare 1​3 Pro. ​I will also share ​my experience with this optimization suite. To start with, ​lets talk about the Installation and Setup of IObit Advanced SystemCare 13 Pro.

Installing Advanced System Care 1​3 Pro

For this Advanced SystemCare 13 Pro review, I am comparing it to other PC Cleaners. Advanced SystemCare 13 is the quickest to install and the easiest to configure among all of them. You have to download the setup file from the official website of IObit. The file size is just around ​48 MB, nearly ​10 MB larger than the size of the previous version. However, the installation takes a few seconds or so​ to finish the installation process on your PC.

Advanced SystemCare 13 Pro Review: Installation

We tried ASC Pro ​13 on an Intel Gen i7-based Windows 10 x64 PC, and the install speed was great.


​Small Installer size and fluid design makes it super easy to install Advanced SystemCare 13. The installer is clean and does not include any bundled packages.

Advanced SystemCare 1​3 Pro Review: Features

​As a matter of fact, there are more than a few Optimization features in Advanced SystemCare 1​3 Pro. Moreover, it isn’t possible to list out every bit of them. So, ​I will ​go through the features based on categories such as Optimization, Cleaning, and Utilities.

​Speed Up

Advanced SystemCare 13 Pro Review: Speedup Module

In this Advanced SystemCare 1​3 Pro review, this is the section where ​you can get the maximum boost in system speed.

  • Turbo Boost helps you to stop unnecessary services. Hence, it releases RAM. You can turn it on for regular monitoring. You can configure all actions.
  • Hardware Accelerator updates your device drivers. Accelerator module uses IObit Driver Booster. However, please note that Driver Booster is present as ​a limited free version. You have to purchase the full version separately.
  • Deep Optimization goes in-depth into applications and services. You can customize it to obtain the best operating speed.
  • Toolbar/App Cleaner is for removing malicious and ​harmful toolbars from your Web Browsers. Please note, IObit Uninstaller adds this feature. It is also present in a ​limited free version.

Advanced SystemCare 13 Pro review: Protect Module

Advanced SystemCare 1​3 Pro comes with some cool features for device and data protection. Some of them are:

  • FaceID brings Facial Recognition technology into your computer. You can just look onto the PC screen to log into it. You have options to exclude certain periods and users. Also, you will also know if someone tried to log in to your account.
  • Real-Time Protection protects your device from malware
  • Home Page Protection
  • Browser Anti-Tracking
  • Surfing Protection and Ad Removal
  • Privacy Shield implements restriction on unauthorized access to your private data by apps and services.

​Email Protection is a new feature under Surfing protection. Advanced SystemCare can now protect your web emails from potential harm. However, keep in mind that you have to enable the IObit browser extension for the Surfing protection to work.

In version 10 this section also had Windows 10 Reinforce module. ​Since version 11 the Windows 10 reinforce module was renamed to Security Reinforce and was moved to regular scan section.


Advanced SystemCare 13 Pro review: Care Module

​IObit Advanced SystemCare ​1​3 Pro finds out all issues in a single scan. In addition, from its main interface, you can pick the ​modules to scan. For instance, you can select Startup Optimization, Privacy Sweep, Shortcut Fix or Internet Boost. Also, you can pick all of them too. Once you press the Scan button, the ASC Pro 1​3 will start scanning all those sections.

​The available options are:

  • Startup Optimization
  • Privacy Sweep
  • Junk Files Cleaner
  • Shortcut Fix
  • Registry Clean
  • Spyware Removal
  • Internet Boost
  • System Optimization
  • Registry Defrag
  • Security Reinforce
  • Disk Optimization
  • Vulnerability Fix
Advanced SystemCare 13 Pro review: Scan process

​Depending on the errors your PC has, you can get the report in a few minutes or so. Now, it’s your turn to decide whether you should optimize these sections and have better Personal Computing experience.

​I have performed multiple scans and i feel that the scan speed of version 13 is bit slower than previous versions of Advanced SystemCare. However, there is nothing to worry about. The average scan time will not be more than a few minutes. 

A worthy point to note is that scanning does not affect other running apps. ​It does not cause any interruption to your computing experience. The selection process makes it easy to scan particular areas instead of running complete scans. Again, it is your choice!


​Presence of all scan options at once place and centralized action makes it convenient to fix all issues at once. 


Advanced SystemCare 13 Pro review: Toolbox applications

If you are a Pro user, you will love the Toolbox section of ASC 1​3 Pro. The Toolbox is an excellent collection of useful utilities. Some of the utilities are already present while you can download the rest as you need them. Some of the fresh ones are:

  • Smart RAM for Memory Optimization
  • Disk Cleaner
  • Large Files Finder
  • Auto Shutdown
  • Registry Defrag
  • Process Manager
  • File Manager
  • Undelete – File Recovery

​Please note that you have to purchase the applications under IObit Products tab separately. Clicking on these apps only downloads their Free versions.

​Software Updater

​You can use this module to update out-of-date applications on your PC. Advanced SystemCare will automatically search for software updates and inform you. hence, all you have to do here is update them.

Advanced SystemCare 13 Pro review: Software Updater

In short, the features of IObit Advanced SystemCare 1​3 Pro are cool. For the price you pay, you get a bunch of tools that make sense.

Advanced SystemCare 1​​3 Pro: User Interface

Just like other apps from IObit, Advanced SystemCare 1​3 Pro also has a classy User Interface. It comes with a multi-tabbed interface that leads to different sections like Speedup, Toolbox, Clean & Optimize and Protects. So, when you ​desperately need a solution, you can navigate to the corresponding tab and do the necessary. Also, IObit Advanced SystemCare 1​3 Pro uses a modular architecture for additional tools. You can download tools according to your requirements. therefore, it’s a great feature to reduce left overs and resource consumption.

Advanced SystemCare 1​​3 Pro: Compatibility

You can club Advanced SystemCare with any third party antivirus application. In our Tests we had Bitdefender, Kaspersky, Vipre, McAfee, and Avira without any conflicts. However, Advanced SystemCare has issues with Malwarebytes.

​If you are using Malwarebytes, Installing Advanced SystemCare can be difficult task. It is detected and automatically removed by Malwarebytes being considered as a PUP. This is a simple case of false positive detection and an old and ongoing conflict between the two companies.

Conclusion: Should you buy Advanced SystemCare Pro?

​Advanced SystemCare 1​3 Pro is a useful tool to boost PC speed and clean it. In this version, IObit has included additional features such as FaceID. It is helpful to protect your PC from intruders. Similarly, it offers a bunch of features for digital identity protection and anti-spyware protection.

  1. I’ve been using their Products for years with NO problems and no issues with malware and virus BS but I am not a young kid that goes to suspect sites and clicks on any link they find fun…

  2. I have tried advanced system care several times:they offer a key for a once clean up –but it does not clean all –only some –unless you buy. I tried again today: Thousands of files>>>but is it true? 3% defragged-I defragged today. I cleaned with PRIVAZER–yet it found many files to delete –why and what ? I have just to believe it!
    I found also that the machine slows when it is installed.
    I removed it again after 10 minutes —I just do not “trust” it to make a true statement at the end of the scan. .Price in Dollars: what dollars? I am in Australia -if it is US dollars then it nearly twice the price –but which company ever bothers to make clear what currency you pay in>> and for that matter_ WHERE THEY ARE. Privazer is still the most “logic” cleaner I have found and I can see what it is doing! Again may not do what it says if Systemcare is right –but what now? What to trust to clean up? I used RED yesterday – 5000 obsolete files -Advanced system care di not find that many! RED is free (remove empty directories)-I used the clean up tools windows 10 has included –and do not pay any money anymore

  3. Should I use advanced system care pro 12 with Windows 10?
    Does it not interfere with the security system attached to Windows 10?

    • Hi Bugeja.

      Only Advanced SystemCare Ultimate version has a built-in antivirus, but I would suggest that if you want a proper virus protection you get full-fledged antivirus like BitDefender antivirus.

      Advanced SystemCare and most IObit products use the Bitdefender Engine. So, it is always better to use the original BitDefender product, where you will get the latest updates (not just the virus signature, but on the entire antivirus software) directly from BitDefender. There are some other features like scanning individual files, ransomware protection, and others that you will not get with the version of antivirus in Advanced SystemCare.

      The best combination for you will be BitDefender total security 5 devices 1-year plan and Advanced SystemCare pro (links below). You can buy it from our store at a great discount, or from the official website at a higher price. That is completely your wish, but make sure you buy and download it from a legit source.

      Stay protected and cheers.

  4. 07/07/’17 in Sydney: downloaded today full load / at a very reasonable price / very impressive-looking / first scan was quick and cleared more than a gigabyte of space on a laptop six weeks from new. So, you beaut! Kevin/Gauvain/Gavino aged 96. []

  5. Have used ASC for years. Now in spite of license code info from iobit I’ve been unable to install, to activate with my license code. Now the messsage comes up “this won’t run on this computer”. (an Acer running Windows 10). I’m trying to install ASC Ultimate. NO GO! No Good!

    All attempts to solve problem are stymied.

    • Strange! I never faced an issue like this. Did you try to reset your license or request a license transfer for reinstallation from iobit? If it is a license issue, that might help.

  6. Good stuff, but annoying as hell if you don’t buy all the components. It keeps telling you to upgrade to the full suite, which you surely don’t need.

  7. Version 9 PRO worked perfectly, but when it upgraded to Version 10 it wouldn’t install properly. I did get to to scan once but it froze on the ‘Registry Scan’, I think that is where the problem lies). I uninstalled and tried to reinstall it twice but it wouldn’t work. I emailed the so called ‘Help’ TWICE with NO REPLY (and that is the guaranteed 48 hour reply because it is the PRO version), and I still have a month left on my subscription… Will I be renewing it after receiving no reply from the so called ‘help; and also loosing out on a month of my subscription ? You guess the answer ! (Clue : It is the opposite of ‘Yes’ !)

  8. I should point out that the Driver Booster and IObit Uninstaller are not trial versions. You can purchase the pro versions of them, which have more features, but the free versions are fully functional. For example, the freee version of Driver Booster will update all tjeoutdated and missing drivers it finds, but the paid Pro version, sometimes finds more driver updates and will download the updates faster.
