Advance System Care

Advance System Care Description

Type: Possibly Unwanted Program

The Advance System Care at advancepctools.biz should not be mistaken for Advanced SystemCare by IObit Software even if that was the intention of the company behind the Advance System Care. The Advance System Care product is associated with advancepctools.biz that is not a top-level domain (TLD) and claims to offer system optimization features to the Windows OS users. The Advance System Care has a support line on +855-433-5747, which appears to be operated by support-geeks.com that is a free domain (as of March 14th, 2017) and does not host content. Apparently, support-geeks.com resembles Support.geeksquad.com, which offers technical support services to Best Buy customers.

The Advance System Care is said to help users clean, optimize, and speed up their PCs in the span of two clicks on 'Scan' and 'Fix problems.' Computer users are welcomed to install the trial version of the Advance System Care that allows them to determine the state of their OSes and receive reports for problems daily until the trial period ends in 30 days. You will need to pay a monthly subscription of 29.95 USD for the first six months and 14.97 USD every subsequent month if you intend to use the Advance System Care and address the problems it has found. You may want to avoid paying for services by the Advance System Care considering that it is a repacked and re-branded version of the Advanced PC Fixer and the Advanced PC Care that were released by Pcvark Software Pvt. Ltd. The company mentioned before is known to develop questionable system optimizers that tend to support the same array of functionality in the Task Scheduler, Disk Defragmenter, Disk Cleanup, Registry Editor, and Service.msc, which come in the Windows OS and you paid for. There is no proof that the Advance System Care performs better that the built-in tools on Windows and you might want to reconsider installing and buying the Advance System Care.

The Advance System Care is classified as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) that is connected to questionable domains and misleading promotional materials to generate revenue. Pcvark Software Pvt. Ltd. is not recognized as a trusted service provider and their product, the Advance System Care, might not speed up your computer. If you experience difficulties removing the Advance System Care by Pcvark Software Pvt. Ltd. manually, you may want to use a credible security suite to purge the program from your machine.
