Advance System Care Pro problem

  spuds 18:19 24 Jan 2009

For quite a long time I have used Advance Window Care 2 Free, with great success and satisfaction. Recently I upgraded to Iobits new version which is now called Advance System Care Pro (the paid version).

Problem that I require help with is that on attempting to update, it seems to go through the motions of seeking the latest update, and thats about it. No update installs or loads, and the procedure as to be aborted due to length of time.

The second problem seems to be in the registry clean-up process. On AWC2 there were usually one or two problems, now with ASW Pro, there are in excess of 150 registry problems found on scanning every time.

I have tried the Iobit forums without success. Iobits technical support appears to be non-existent.

CCleaner always seems to find 'left-overs', which it generally cleans-up.

If you are a ASW Pro user, can you help resolve or at least put a little light the issues that I have raised?.

Like so many "paid for" registry optimizers it's all a big con.
I run Advanced System Care Pro (only because I got a free upgrade) and it,as with yourself,comes up with in excess of 100 registry issues over and above anything the free version ever found.
These so called problems are most likely to be the registry alterations made by programs which you have recently been using. It's OK to delete them but they will just be reinstated the next time you run the same program - but it sure as hell looks good on paper if you are trying to persuade someone to part with their cash.

Having said that mine does update without a problem.

Looks like I will have to treat the registry problem as a false/positive for the time being.

With regards to updating, I am beginning to think that the delay is due to something perhaps running in the background on the computer.

Still a bit peeved though, that Iobit isn't more customer friendly.

Will tick this as resolved., and thank you for the input.
