Key Features

  • Smart PC Care is your one-click cure to computer problems. Instead of downloading a different product to fix a different problem, AOL Computer Checkup combines them all, and with Smart PC Care it only takes one click to identify and fix some of the most common causes of a slow PC.
  • Disk Optimizer ensures your PC’s hard drive is operating at its maximum potential. Over time, hard drives become fragmented, making it take longer to access files. Disk Optimizer's advanced technology analyzes your hard drive and rearranges the data so it can be accessed quicker.
  • Registry Cleaner keeps your PC operating smoothly by scanning, identifying, cleaning and repairing errors in your Windows registry. Registry errors can cause your computer to behave erratically, crash or hang. Registry Cleaner removes debris left behind by installing and uninstalling programs, as well as adware and spyware. It also defragments the registry to improve performance.
  • System and Security Advisor provides personalized performance and security recommendations for your system. The Performance Scan analyzes your PC and recommends steps to improve performance. The Security Scan looks for vital security components, such as a firewall and antivirus software, and identifies system settings that can increase your level of security.
  • Backup and Recovery allows you to perform local backups and recovers accidentally deleted files so your important files and data are never lost.
  • Privacy Protector helps protect your privacy by scanning and removing traces of your Internet browsing history as well as files and programs you have used. The File Shredder permanently deletes files and folders and overwrites the content with random data, so malicious programs that work off the traces of deleted files can't recover them.
  • Other Utilities offers additional helpful tools such as Scheduling Maintenance, allowing you to schedule maintenance diagnostics scans ahead of time, and a Startup Manager to help speed your system startup.
