The Good

Far from a one-trick pony, IObit boasts numerous solutions to your system’s performance and security issues. The company makes seven performance products, each aimed at a specific function and each created to enhance the user’s experience. From software to remove unwanted programs, to software capable of transferring data, to software that updates outdated drivers, IObit has something for everyone. The company also offers five protection products, each engineered to rid undesirable visitors from your system. There are even two mobile products: Advanced Mobile Care for Android and ManageMyMobile, which keeps your mobile device organized, secure and running at top speed.

IObit’s crown jewel, however, is the all-in-one Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 7. This behemoth guards your system against viruses, spyware, hackers, phishing and other unwanted intruders. It provides users privacy when perusing the Internet, and it boosts, cleans and repairs a host of problems with your PC with a simple click of the mouse.

Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 7, in particular, is faster than many of its competing products. IObit software comes equipped with powerful scans that pick up any straggling viruses or malware that other products would miss. The software also comes with a host of toolbars and plug-ins to make your experience even better.

The flagship software is excellent at detecting malicious URLs, meaning users won’t have to worry about landing on a harmful website. In addition, the number of system utilities is plentiful and rich.

Interested customers will find the company’s website to be useful and informative. The products are described in detail, complete with customer reviews and media reviews. You certainly know what you are buying when ordering an IObit product.

The Bad

IObit software comes attached with a price tag, while many free antivirus software downloads are readily available. Also, there have yet to be any independent lab tests of the Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 7 product.

The antivirus protection is useful but certainly not out of this world. It’s really no different than anything else one would find in the industry. Some customers have complained that the scans are slow.

The Bottom Line

IObit has a product for just about any computer problem. You’d be hard-pressed to find a company that offers such a comprehensive list of tools. If you have a PC experiencing problems you can’t solve, IObit is a terrific choice to help remedy those problems. IObit comes top recommended with its products, particularly the Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 7, which is a fine do-it-all solution.

    Best virus detector by far in my experience. I’ve tried many. But I stay with IOBIT.
