Advanced SystemCare PRO is a registry repair software produced by Iobit. The design of the software is very intuitive and provides many scanning options to you. The safety tool automatically creates backups and has multiple restore functions. The registry scan tool is one of the quickest we tested, and it increased the performance of our test computer. For these reasons, Advanced SystemCare is the winner the TopTenREVIEWS Silver Award.
Advanced SystemCare PRO has a scan tool that lets you choose to run a simple registry scan or an all-in-one system scan that will check your entire system for errors. The all-in-one tool is easy to use and perfect if you are less sure about registry repair options. The standalone registry scanner took 31 seconds to scan our test computer and found 252 registry issues. A problem with the registry scan tool is that it didn’t provide detailed information about the 252 registry issues the software found, which is a feature found on other similar registry scanners.
Advanced SystemCare PRO includes a registry defrag tool. Either you can run the registry defrag tool as part of the all-in-one system repair scan or you can run it as a standalone tool. The versatile scan and repair options is one of the better feature of this software. The standalone registry defrag tool gives detailed information about the health of your registry and the amount of fragmentation. After running the optimization, cleaning and repair tools Advanced SystemCare offers, the software increased the performance of our test computer by 5.07 percent.
Advanced SystemCare PRO provides a Rescue Center tool that provides multiple types of registry and system backup options. The software will automatically create a system and registry backup every time you make a repair to the registry. This includes when you use the registry defrag tool, which is a feature only included on the better registry repair software.
The Rescue Center tool has tabs for a general restore that let the software restore your system to the last backup, or you can choose to perform a registry restore after a registry repair, registry defrag or a full system restore. The software offers an undo tool that lets you undo a single registry cleaning error. Advanced SystemCare PRO doesn't have an exclusion list, which is a feature that allows you to exclude certain sections of your computer from the software's scans ensuring your sensitive information stays protected.
Advanced SystemCare PRO, like other registry optimizer programs, will scan for specific registry errors. Advanced SystemCare PRO scans your computer for invalid shared and known DLLs, invalid help files, COM and ActiveX, sound and app events, invalid class keys, application paths, invalid fonts, spyware and shell extensions. It also removes duplicate files, checks shared folders and fixes and removes corrupt files. That is 12 out of the 15 scan criteria we were looking for among the registry repair software we tested.
The software doesn't check for invalid CLSID & Typelib and interface entries, delete empty registry keys or check for hidden traces of installed software. These registry cleaning items are found on different software we reviewed.
Advanced SystemCare comes with a single software license, which is standard among most registry repair software. Advanced SystemCare is the lowest option for the Advanced SystemCare suite of products, which includes Advanced SystemCare PRO and Ultimate, and there are some tools in Advanced SystemCare that aren't unlocked until you purchase a larger suite.
Iobit includes phone support for Advanced SystemCare PRO, which is a support feature found on the better registry scanners. Iobit also has a FAQs page on their website, which is very good for helping you find quick answers to common problems other users have had with the software. Iobit doesn’t offer a live chat feature on their website, but they do offer email support through a form submission page on their website.
Advanced SystemCare PRO has a good all-in-one scanning and repair tool that helps both the novice and advanced user to optimize their PC.

The repair tools helped improve the performance of our test computer, and make Advanced SystemCare PRO a good registry optimizer option.
