Iobit has released version 8.4 of its system tuning utility, Advanced SystemCare.


The new version has been outed, just three days after the release of Iobit Uninstaller 5.

As you can see from the above image, Windows 10 is now fully supported in the application.Iobit Advanced SystemCare 8.3 was released a month ago, adding support for cleaning the new browser in Windows 10, Microsoft Edge. The newest release v8.4 improves upon this feature and also adds cleaning for Modern Apps (Windows Store Apps) in the Privacy Sweep tab.

You can now use the app to set Microsoft Edge as the default browser, and also use the utility to set various default programs for file types, in Windows XP and above. You can find the “Default Program” selector under the Toolbox tab, as seen in the screenshot below.


And this is what the module itself looks like. It displays the available programs for each file type neatly categorized, with a set default button, beside each app.


Although it doesn’t work correctly. Notice the browser section in the above screenshot. It incorrectly detects “Torch Browser”. which is infact the browser for viewing the Steam Workshop for Torchlight II.

The Email section also does not detect Windows 10’s Mail and Calendar app.

The Privacy Cleaner now supports the cleaning of Google Chrome 44.0, Mozilla Firefox 40.0, Opera 31.0, Comodo IceDragon 38.0 web browsers, as well as Auslogics Disk Defrag 6.0, Adobe Air 18.0, Thunderbird 38.1  and many more.  Additionally, Advanced System Care 8.4 , now supports cleaning for the following popular apps: Nero Burning ROM 2015, Nero BackItUp 15, RealTimes 18 and BlueStacks App Player.

The new version also brings updated and expanded database for various built-in modules of Advanced SystemCare 8.4, including the malware remover. registry cleaner, the software updater, the Surfing Protection (browser extension), the Junk Files cleaner. The Startup Manager has been improved to work better, with Quick Optimizations and also to display the boot-time (in a pop-up), when the system starts.

The Startup Manager isn’t a new addition, and in fact has been present in several prior versions. But it hasn’t been working well for me, with the pop-up for the boot-time display, only appearing sporadically for me.

Iobit has also updated translations for the application, and also reports that it has fixed miscellaneous bugs which were present in the prior version.
