The latest version of IObit's premium PC cleaning tool looks familiar, but it has a lot to offer under the hood, including tools to deal with emerging threats like cryptojackers. This can have a noticeable impact on the performance and startup time of your computer. Thanks to automatic cleaning, the computer can run smoothly for the long term.
Advanced SystemCare 12 Pro is the latest version of IObit's premium PC optimization software. There's also a free version of the software, but the Pro edition offers features like scheduled cleanup, real-time system monitoring, and Internet optimization, to name a few.
The new edition of Advanced SystemCare 12 Pro detects more types of junk files than previous versions and has an improved boot manager to reduce boot times. It also includes a new privacy shield that prevents unauthorized access to your data and an anti-tracking feature that prevents advertisers from following you on the Internet. IObit has also improved its ad blocker and pop-up blocker, which now offer effective protection against crypto jackers.
The IObit Advanced SystemCare 12 Pro user interface is clean and elegant, with a selection of light and dark designs and many more coming soon. There are also three font sizes to choose from. It is refreshing to see the attention given to users who have difficulty reading smaller texts on the screen. You can even set a photo as the background to further customize the program.
During execution, IObit Advanced SystemCare 12 Pro inserts a small widget at the top right of the screen that shows the current RAM and CPU usage of your system. You may not need this information frequently, but the widget is very discreet and provides a great way to determine the impact of certain programs on the performance of your PC, and the difference made by running various tools.

In the simplest case, IObit Advanced SystemCare 12 Pro offers a one-click optimization scan that looks for common issues like junk files, broken links, spyware, and bad registry entries. It works great if you are pressed for time or don't know how to use the advanced options. However, if you feel safe, you can also defragment the registry and do several quick fixes, including optimizing your hard drive and boosting the internet.
You can choose to automatically repair detected problems. However, this option is disabled by default. This means that you can first check and deselect anything you prefer to leave alone. You can also shutdown or restart your PC after issues are resolved, or put it to sleep or hibernate.
The previous version of IObit Advanced SystemCare Pro was excellent and seems to have changed little on the surface. However, if you spend any time with SystemCare 12 Pro, you will find plenty of updates that will keep you updated for 2019 and help you deal with modern security threats while improving your PC speed and reducing boot times.
We would have liked a little more flexibility in the selection of items to be cleaned after a scan. Otherwise, it's a hard-to-reject PC optimization tool that has a noticeable impact on your computer's performance.
