NoelDP is correct. IOBits software is trouble.

The IOBit website provides no contact information other than a web based form. That in itself is cause for concern. The company is based in China.

IOBit has been involved in some questionable business practices. There is strong evidence they stole the intellectual property of Malwarebytes, a highly respected security company:

Most experienced members of this forum do not use or recommend IOBit software.

Well then I would really love a software recommendation similar to Advanced Systemcare.

Basic piece of advice ...

Don't look for a "silver Bullet" solution to system monitoring on windows 7, whilst the design of older operating systems such as XP may have "needed" a bit of help in optimising it's operation Windows 7, and Later, does not - The built in automatic functionality will perform better when left alone, after all it was written by the same people who wrote the OS .

The Tweaks Industry that grew up around XP has a problem in that they are no longer needed for a modern OS - they will tell you that they are still required, but this is not so. leve windows to it's own resources and It will run fine.

If you do want to learn about the OS at a deeper level and maybe correct shortcomings in some older 3rd party software that is not designed as well as Windows 7 stake a look at the Sysinternals Suite from microsoft themselves, but be aware that this does not have a fancy "bells and Whistles Front end" designed to catch users. What it does have is a suite of applications and full documentation

Ok, but I just wanted a software which will take care of my junks at once rather than me have to go through all of my browsers, registry entries and temporary files and stuffs and removing the not needed one. It really takes a lots of time. For example, after installing a particular software the bits and pieces of its registry entry remains right?
