Glary Utilities Portable is a collection of system tools and utilities to fix, speed up, maintain and protect your PC. It allows you to clean common system junk files, as well as invalid registry entries and Internet traces (theres a plug-in support for 45+ external programs). You can also manage and delete browser add-ons, analyze disk space usage and find duplicate files. Glary Utilities Portable offers numerous powerful and easy-to-use system tools and utilities to fix, speed up, maintain and protect your PC.
Its user interface is straightforward and easy to follow. Three tabs grant you access to the current status of the program updates and license, one-click maintenance functions, and five modules.
The ‘1-Click Maintenance’ section, you can configure the registry cleaner, shortcuts fixer, startup manager, temporary files cleaner, tracks eraser and spyware remover.
If you select all features, Glary Utilities Portable performs a rapid scan and reveals the number of problems, highlighted in red, under each function.
If your computer presents with these problems (and it usually does), your next move is to repair them. Before doing so, we recommend you back up your data or create a system restore point, just to avoid any problems.
Glary Utilities Portable fixes these problems almost instantly. The bad news is that it doesn’t specify if particular invalid registry entries are essential to Windows, so you can easily end up deleting them.
We suggest you perform a secondary scan, just in case Glary Utilities missed something during the first one (like it did in our case).
In ‘Modules’ you can delete junk data to clear up space, fix start menu and desktop shortcuts, uninstall programs, monitor and optimize free memory, defrag the Windows registry, shred files, encrypt and decrypt files, retrieve deleted files, split and join files, and others.
CPU and memory are minimally used, but other processes may run a bit slower when Glary Utilities is working.
It seems that Glary Utilities Portable has most of the components you need to take care of your computer. Easy to use and packing the needed features, the software is surely one of the top choices.
