We were very surprised to find a freeware utility like Glary Utilities which did so much without having the nag the user to upgrade to a full version. Though Glary Soft *does* also sell a "Pro" version, the current freeware offered does a great job of checking your system for temporary files, registry errors, wrong paths and a very basic spyware scanner.
The idea behind Glary Utilities is simple. It checks your computer for Registry Errors, Invalid Shortcuts, Dangerous Startup Programs, Temporary Files, Spyware and finally can clean up your tracks on the Internet like temporary files, cookies and history.
In addition to provides these free tools into one simple download, it also offers links to other Windows settings under its Modules interface. We found the memory optimizer a great addition to a very well done program. The Registry Defrag is also a very nice addition.
Please note that the freeware version of Glary Utilities for free only for private use and companies wishing to take advantage of the great set of functions of this download will have to purchase the Pro version available on Glary Soft's web site.
One last thing to note is the duplicate files finder under the Modules tab which scans your computer for certain types of files (ie. Movies, Music, etc) for duplicates which may be hogging up disk space. In our tests, the duplicate files found by Glary Utilities were mainly those shared by programs across Windows user accounts, so you might want to be careful when deleting them.
