Fix-it Utilities is a professional PC maintenance and tune up program used to fix, speed up and maintain PC performance. Tasks performed by Fix-it Utilities Professional include PC tune up from any browser, remote PC access and control, virus and spyware protection, Windows speed up, Windows registry cleaning and repair, PC crashes and freezes repair, system & hard drive errors handling, and complete PC maintenance.
Among all PC tune up software products out in the market, Fix-It
Utilities is probably the most popular name. The software, which was
originally created by VCom, has went on to become even more popular
after Avanquest's purchase of VCom. Now with version 15 it has become
even more powerful with many new features, which we're going to explore
in the review given below. Let's get started:
The feature set of Avanquest Fix-It Utilities 15 Pro is quite versatile. Besides including all general system optimization features (i.e. program optimizer, memory optimizer, Windows optimizer, registry cleaner, disk defragment etc.) it also includes some features that you won't find in other products. Two such features include:
In short, its features have been designed to allow you to have total control over the health of your PC no matter where you're. And also to protect all your devices no matter where they're. Now they are some very good ideas, aren't they?
So far, so good. But a slight downside of the software is that some of its utilities are so loaded with features that an average user may not be able to understand them. For example, the Windows Optimizer included in software provides 150 different routines, most of which are of no use to average users. This is good stuff for geeks, but certainly not for average daily users. However, the company has tried to deal with this challenge by providing easy to use wizards, as we'll see in the UI section below.
UI of Avanquest Fix-It Utilities Pro 15 has many elements that make it
easy to use. For example, it allows you to fix all problems with a
single green button. It also makes PC optimization feel easy by
organizing the processes in different wizards. The wizards are:
Together these 3 wizards make up the most important part of Fix It Utilities 15 Pro's UI because they provide easy ways of performing critical system maintenance tasks. They're badly needed in a software as loaded with features as it is. So even if you're a new user fortunately you will not have a very hard time understanding how to use it for most basic PC maintenance tasks.
While it may not be the
easiest software to use in its category, it certainly is the most
feature rich one. Plus, it can be installed on up to five devices, which
makes it a good bargain. If you want a single beast that can perform
maintenance of your PCs and protect your other devices as well, you
can't find a solution better than this.
