IOBit Advanced SystemCare 5.2 introduces Windows 8 support, many optimisations

March 14, 2012 – 12:42 by in News Print Share No Comment

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.

Security, optimisation, repair, cleanup - Advanced SystemCare does it all

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.
