Bundleware?

about Glary Utilities · · Helpful Not helpful

I don't think it should be considered a Bundleware, alla others programs aren't installed by default, you can choose...

Uninstalled immediately after installation.

about Glary Utilities · · Helpful Not helpful

Seems bloated and targeted towards people who aren't sure how to maintain their system.

During installation, was offered two 3rd-party (or at least, not necessary) apps whilst not specifying they were unnecessary (checkboxes auto-checked, had to de-select). Then after, was offered anti-malware program to install (also auto-checked). Upon 1st launch, was offered Pro version. Looked around, everything seemed to be targeted towards newbies (let us take care of your system for you). Uninstalled.

Why this is compared so much to CCleaner?

about Glary Utilities · · Helpful Not helpful

I do understand that both have alike functions, but CCleaner is NOT something that is comparable to Glary Tools. I love CCleaner because it compact, small and does what it is meant to; Cleans your registry and redundant files. In my humble opinion CCleaner is better at cleaning, not so much because it cleans more than Glary Utilities, but because it cleans "less". Cleaning can lead to removing something you do not want and make your PC unbootable eventually.

But if anything I compare Glary Tools to System Mechanic/Advanced System Optimizer/Tuneup Utilities and what not. It is a System utilities suite with so much more than CCleaner has. Sure CCleaner has now some extra features, but it is what it's name says; Crap Cleaner.

I still use them both, mostly because I do not like the "better" cleaners Glary Tools offer. I prefer for CCleaner to clean a couple of kbs less and keep my head safe :D

Virus detected by virustotal.com

about Glary Utilities · · Helpful Not helpful

I just scan virus, via virustotal.com, the installer downloaded from official site and 3 viruses detected as reported here.

I do not understand why you posted this as a review? Plus it is obvious that it is a false positive. Not only the results are too little, but two out of the three antivirus results are "suspicious". Not definite virus.

Glary is better than CCleaner

about Glary Utilities and CCleaner · · Helpful Not helpful

I have used both of them for extended periods and I think Glary does a better job of optimizing my computer.

Can you test performance Maintainer. It did a pretty good job in cleaning in my PC

Hi. I've been using CCleaner for about a year now in my HP Mini 110 notebook which has an Atom processor. But now that CCleaner isnt free anymore, it becomes irritating to use it. So my question is, will Glary Utilities make my PC slow? Please reply. Thanks.

Hello Andalah.

Glary Utilities doesn't slow down my PC at all. :)

CCleaner still has a near fully functional free version, if you can't find free you clearly aren't looking.

Glary Utilities Uninstall Manager: 64bit, portable & OK

about Glary Utilities and BlackBerry Desktop Manager, Revo Uninstaller · · Helpful Not helpful

The Uninstall Manager from Glary Utilities is very good portable uninstall app for Windows 32bit AND 64bit systems.

The portable Revo Uninstaller has more likes than Glary Utilities (also with tag "uninstaller"), but the free version of Revo Uninstaller does not run on 64 bit systems.

The purpose of the Uninstall Manager is to remove unnecessary files and registry entries left behind by incomplete program uninstallation routines. The Uninstall Manager from Glary Utilities can uninstall parts of programs, which are not listed anymore in "Windows Add or Remove Programs" applet.
I had a very good experience with uninstalling Alk Copilot Central, which was not listet in "Windows Add or Remove Programs". The Uninstall Manager from Glary Utilities removed after an incomplete program uninstallation all parts very good und I found no entries from Alk Copilot Central in the registry afterwards.

I like Glary Utilities: it has more functions than CCleaner. But since I installed it, on 3 PC, they ALL started to freeze up and I must reset :(
If these problems will be fixed in a next version of Glary Utilities, maybe I'll reinstall it. Meanwhile I'll go back to CCleaner.

I prefer Glary Utilities to CCleaner:
I do not like CCleaner, because it can remove things, that should not be deleted.
I like that both apps are available as Liberkey portable apps

I like to agree with Aaron. I had it for over a year and it has made my new computer just sing.

Another really great program, I really liked it for the undelete that it has, there were times that I accidentally deleted something and I used its program and was able to get my files back. it has a lot of other good scanning things to help improve your system.
