Sweet. Glary Utilities is the best-balanced maintenance application that I have tested. Easy on system resources, a complete toolbox, and thorough in performance. Installed without issue, and uncomplicated registration process by managing the license. I did not allow Glary to “clean” my registry, because the online consensus seems to be that no registry-tinkering is necessary or beneficial in modern systems. That required a single click to uncheck the “clean registry” option box, and it was good to go.Jun 10, 2023 at 12:29 pm #21264551BCDGuest

Glary Utilities will not start. Ends with error “side by side configuration is incorrect”. Unable to use the application. HELP!Jun 10, 2023 at 7:36 pm #21265411JayGuest
hi folks – I have benefited from a free version before … with no trouble. Had to uninstall this version of Pro because registration was not possible – “activate now” and “refresh” were nowhere to be found?! I’m not complaining (it’s a freebie) just disappointed. Maybe next time.Jun 11, 2023 at 1:18 am #21266139StuGuest
[ @Ashraf] The checkout site / process doesn’t seem to be working for Glary’s?Jun 11, 2023 at 12:11 pm #21268617DierkdkGuest
System Utilities, such as Glary, get mixed reviews in the tech press, with a consensus that they either make only marginal improvements; and/or can be duplicated by built-in OS (Win) utilities; and/or are capable of doing considerable Damage if not careful.
That said, Glary is at least a “known” product which organizes a number of Tools in reasonably easy to find menus, and this is a nice giveaway.
The Software Update tool is worth running, especially if you have apps that are not frequently ran, and which otherwise do not report the availability of an update. At first run, Glary (5.2) found 3 Updates: Calibre, WinOptimizer (!), and GeForce Experience. It correctly identified the GeForce version, but was 1 off on Calibre (it offered 6.19 instead of 6.20 – which admittedly had only been released 2 days prior). The WinOpt install was a Trial, which I had forgotten about, so the “udpate” notice was still useful.
