For many, buying a new computer is an obvious solution to a problem with a slow PC. Fortunately, this is not the only option. You can save a budget if you invest in a PC setup utility such as IObit Advanced SystemCare Pro. The application allows you to perform all system recovery actions that are available in IObit Advanced SystemCare Free, and also adds real-time optimization, deeper registry cleaning and a number of other functions. Advanced SystemCare Pro does not fully match the capabilities of AVG TuneUp or Iolo System Mechanic, but it’s a performance application for a great price that you should definitely try.
The procedure for the correct removal of the program IObit.
IObit - what is this program
IObit Advanced SystemCare does a good job of accelerating slow PCs, but the utility has a number of drawbacks that prevent it from being the best in the ratings.
- Improves computer performance.
- A useful Performance Monitor widget.
- Health Monitor - provides a brief information about the system.
- It has several security features.
- Data recovery.
- Installation restrictions.
- Additional features - need separate downloads and purchases.
Advanced SystemCare is a PC optimization tool for Windows 10, 8 and 7. The latest version of the utility is IObit 12. Performance improvements are achieved by optimizing several components.
- Scanning and cleaning unnecessary files.
- Turbo acceleration.
- Deep optimization.
- Startup optimization.
- Hardware acceleration
- Disk Optimization.
- Data recovery.
- FaceID and other privacy protection features.
Add-ons are loaded separately. Among the free ones there is an update of your computer drivers, the destruction of files / folders and FaceID face recognition. Among paid Smart Defrag Pro - $ 3.99. IObit Uninstaller Pro - $ 4.99.
Main features of the program
Advanced SystemCare is offered in three versions: Free, Pro and Ultimate, focused on maximum security. The free version includes standard protection, system optimization, backup / restore, privacy protection and an acceleration feature that removes unnecessary files and defragments the registry. Version Pro ($ 19.99 per year) has additional features, including real-time system optimization and anti-malware protection (antivirus). Ultimate ($ 29.99 per year) includes many additional security tools that protect against Trojans, worms, viruses, etc. Unlike other similar programs, IObit has license restrictions: the software can be installed only on 3 computers. In some cases, such conditions can be a problem. But if not, then Advanced SystemCare is downloaded and installed in a few minutes!
New and old tools
Advanced SystemCare Pro contains several new, system-enhancing and security-oriented tools that even an inexperienced user can use.
Among the system components:
- IObit Undelete, restoring files through internal and external storage.
- A new disk optimization engine that improves its performance.
New security features:
- Security Reinforce - diagnosis and elimination of system flaws.
- Homepage Advisor - control changes to the home page and search engine to avoid hacking the browser.
Immediately after the start, you can run a system scan. You need to click the "Scan" icon on the widget or desktop. Advanced SystemCare Pro will check your PC for problems and, if necessary, run the troubleshooting wizard.
IObit Pro has several features that are either expanded or not available in the Free version:
- Disk Cleaner - delete unnecessary files.
- Internet Booster - increase the speed of the Internet connection.
- Registry Cleaner - repair problem registry.
- Real-time optimization system that helps to control the system on the fly.
This is a generic and standard feature list, which is also available in other similar premium programs. Unlike the Free version, IObit Pro has a useful Performance Monitor desktop widget that allows you to view the load on the processor, disk, network and RAM. If components are overloaded, the tool will warn you about this. In the system monitor there are shortcuts that allow you to turn off the computer, turn off processes, take screenshots and perform other useful functions. This is a great way to get instant information about your PC without switching to the application.
Advanced SystemCare Pro offers to download other software from IObit to protect your PC and improve its performance. For example, if Advanced SystemCare Pro does not detect other antivirus software, it will offer to download IObit Advanced SystemCare Ultimate, which fights off malware. The program includes some other interesting features, such as WinFix, Smart RAM, Internet Booster, Disk Doctor, Disk Cleaner, etc. The software can restore a file that you have already deleted from the recycle bin, freeing up virtual memory, and closing unnecessary background tasks, disable unnecessary third-party services and programs during startup, etc. Using the face recognition function, you can configure the unlocking of a laptop or PC. Advanced SystemCare is also effective for increasing Internet speed, protecting DNS, blocking tracking, etc.
IObit has a very nice and user-friendly interface. The home page has almost all the necessary features, including a large scan button. If necessary, you can navigate between the tabs “Clean and Optimize”, “Accelerate”, “Protect”, “Toolbar”, etc. Each tab contains corresponding functions. For example, on the “Protection” tab are Face ID, Real-Time Protector, DNS Protect, etc., and in “Speed Up” you will see Turbo Boost, Hardware Acceleration, Deep Optimization, Application Cleaner / Toolbars, etc. .
To test IObit Advanced SystemCare Pro and allow it to breathe new life into the PC, we performed two tests — running the Geekbench system performance tool and measuring the load time — before and after starting the software. Each test was performed 3 times. Before the software tuned the system, an Intel Core i7 X990 Style-Note notebook with a clock frequency of 2 GHz, 4 GB of RAM and 80-GB Intel solid-state drive received 5914 points in Geekbench and booted in 50.3 seconds. After starting IObit, system performance improved. Score GeekBench rose to 6104 - more than 200 points. Download time reduced to 44.2 s. Overall, the utility has had some positive effect on the PC. It provides a noticeable performance improvement. The whole OS began to work faster even with open iTunes and Steam.
IObit can perform deep scan, detect unnecessary files and quickly clean them. Startup optimization, Internet accelerator, Windows vulnerability tool, disk defragmenter, registry cleaning, spyware and adware removal tool, RAM manager, and many other features are available. Additionally, using the program solves all possible problems with confidentiality. The factors slowing down the speed of the PC can be many. But Advanced SystemCare can tweak a few important things that unlock maximum speed and performance. This is done using the Turbo Boost function, which stops unnecessary services. It also deeply optimizes some things, such as turning off unnecessary animation, autorun from removable disks, etc.
Remove IObit from computer
You can completely remove IObit from your computer either manually or using third-party software.
This is a manual way to remove the program IObit Uninstaller, which requires several steps to complete. The first is to stop the running process:
- Right-click on the taskbar at the bottom of the screen and select “Start Task Manager.”
- Click on the "Processes" tab to see the programs currently running, and then select "Show processes from all users."
- Click on IObit if it is active, and then click “End Process”.

- "Change the parameters to show the hidden ...".
- Scroll through the settings window that opens to the most and select "Show hidden files."

On drive C there are folders with temporary files, extension components, etc. You need to delete them manually. Open My Computer and go to:
- C: \ Windows \ Temp.
- C: \ Users \ username \ AppData \ Local \ Temp.
- C: \ Users \ Default \ AppData \ Local \ Temp.
- C: \ Users \ All Users \ TEMP.
Alternately, open and delete all the contents of the directories. In addition to garbage from IObit, there are temporary files of other applications. Do not be afraid to remove them.
After the main and temporary files, you need to completely delete the remaining registry entries:
- Enter "Regedit" in the search bar next to the "Start" button, and start the registry editor.
- On the Edit tab, select Find (or press Ctrl + F at the same time).

- Alternately, delete all directories and registry files until the search is complete.
- Reboot the PC.
Cleaning Task Scheduler
The next step is to clear the task scheduler:
- Start - enter "Task Scheduler" and select the program in the list.
- On the right, select the “Scheduler Library” branch.
- In the middle of the window, scroll through the task list (there are a few of them) and delete everything where IObit is - first in the file names alphabetically, then in the Author column.
The final step will be the control cleaning of the conductor:
- Open My Computer and type "IObit" in the search bar, press Enter.
- Wait until the end of the search and make sure that all folders and files with this name have been deleted.
All these steps will help to remove the program completely. Alternatively, you can use a third-party application that performs all actions automatically.

Consider the process on the example of the popular CCleaner:
- After starting, open the Service tab, in the Uninstall a program, find IObit
- Select Uninstall and confirm when prompted.

- Here you can set the criteria for cleaning, including settings Explorer, Chrome, antivirus, etc.
- Wait for the scan to finish and click the “Clean” button.
- On the Registry tab, click Search for problems, then "Fix checked".
IObit Advanced SystemCare Pro is a noteworthy utility that deftly improves PC performance. The program performs almost the same functions as the category leaders, and costs a bit cheaper. Unfortunately, IObit has licensing restrictions - for full customization you need to download (in some cases, buy) additional extensions, but, nevertheless, the program is a reliable and stable choice.
