My brother currently has Glary utilities but has problems when there is an update to do, as he has to go to the website then download the update then install it (he had 12 downloads and had not installed any of them) he wondered why he was continually being asked to update, he is getting on a bit and not very good on PC he needs something that will udate automatically from the software with as few steps as possible, also free if possible.
Yes it is quiet a way from where I live... I dont mind making the trek but just thought it might be an idea to install something different for him. I have downloaded advanced system care on to my PC, I will use it for a while to see if it might be OK for him to use.
Glary was or use to be classed as one of the 'better/reliable' product. Advanced System Care was originally Advanced Window Care, and over time, this as undergone a number of changes (some good,some not so good). The same applies to Iobit and Ashampoo products. All have free versions available.
One option would be to tell him to ignore or say 'No Thanks' to the updates and let you sort it out when you visit. After all they are seldom critical and some do detract from the original (good) functionality of some software as spuds points out.
