Hi Guys,

Someone recommended Glary Utilities to me which I downloaded and ran. Is it any good? What actually does it do?

Many thanks.

I prefer the rival company "IOBIT" it does similar with Advanced windows care ver 4"

I don't mean to offend in any way BUT - I find it hard to understand why anyone would download and run a product without even knowing what it actually does - even on the recommendation of someone else I would still have to find out more - my advice for the future would be to "Google" things to find out and/or read any reviews.
