REVIEW UPDATED ON
Now, I will go through the different aspects of IObit Advanced SystemCare 12 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 12 Pro.
Installing Advanced System Care 12 Pro
For this Advanced SystemCare 12 Pro review, I am comparing it to other PC Cleaners. Advanced SystemCare 12 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 38 MB, nearly 12 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.
We tried ASC Pro 12 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 12. The installer is clean and does not include any bundled packages.
Advanced SystemCare 12 Pro Review: Features
As a matter of fact, there are more than a few Optimization features in Advanced SystemCare 12 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.
System Speed Up
In this Advanced SystemCare 12 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 12 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.
In version 10 this section also had Windows 10 Reinforce module. In version 11 the same was moved to the Clean & Optimize module. It remains the same in version 12 also.
Clean & Optimize
IObit Advanced SystemCare 12 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 12 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
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 12 is much slower than previous versions of Advanced SystemCare. However, there is nothing to worry about. The avarage 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 it 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.
If you are a Pro user, you will love the Toolbox section of ASC 12 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.
Here, you can enable options such as Game Optimization and Password Manager. It also offers a Software Updater. You can use this module to update out-of-date applications on your PC.
In short, the features of IObit Advanced SystemCare 12 Pro are cool. For the price you pay, you get a bunch of tools that make sense.
Advanced SystemCare 12 Pro: User Interface
Just like other apps from IObit, Advanced SystemCare 12 Pro also has a classy User Interface.

So, when you badly need a solution, you can navigate to the corresponding tab and do the necessary. Also, IObit Advanced SystemCare 12 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 12 Pro: Compatibility
You can club Advanced SystemCare with any third party antivirus application. In our Tests we had Bitdefender, Kaspersky, Vipre 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.
