IOBit Advanced SystemCare 5.2 introduces Windows 8 support, many optimisations
IObit’s do-everything PC maintenance suite, Advanced SystemCare, has today been updated to version 5.2. And top of the changelog this time is the new support for Windows 8 Consumer Preview. (Whether anyone’s spending enough time using Windows 8 to require a maintenance suite is another issue, of course, but it’s still a welcome addition here.)
IObit also report optimisations and improvements in just about every SystemCare module: PC Health, Performance Monitor, Privacy Sweep, Turbo Boost, Registry Fix, Malware Removal, System Optimisation, Disk Defragment, Shortcut Fix, Disk Cleaner and Cloned Files Scanner.
And elsewhere, updates to the driver and malware databases help the program’s existing features do a better job.
A very quick look at the new build suggests these changes are relatively minor; using something like CCleaner, say, will still free up more hard drive space than Advanced SystemCare can manage.
The program does have a lot of functionality, though, and you may well notice more radical improvements on your own system. Click More > Check for Updates within Advanced SystemCare to upgrade, or download the full Advanced SystemCare 5.2 setup file to reinstall from scratch.
