Wise Care 365 is a free system optimizer tool, which means it includes a wide range of different applications, all in a single program.

In addition to many other things (all listed below), one feature that stands out with Wise Care 365 is the ability to auto-clean things like log files, temporary files, invalid Windows Registry entries, browsing history, document access logs, etc.

Wise Care 365 Pros & Cons

This free system optimizer is one of my favorites, and has just about everything you need:

Pros:

  • Includes lots of free and useful tools
  • Some tools can be automated
  • You have complete control over what, specifically, is cleaned
  • Some tools can be used from the right-click context menu
  • Can be used as a portable program without installation
  • Doesn't try to install unrelated software during setup

Cons:

  • Some tools are marked as "PRO" and require a paid upgrade to use

Wise Care 365 Tools

Some system optimizers have unique features that set them apart from other similar software. Every feature in Wise Care 365, however, is actually included in similar programs; I couldn't find anything unique that you can't get elsewhere.

The following is a list of every tool I could find in Wise Care 365:

Auto shutdown, data recovery, deleted files eraser, disk cleaner, disk defrag, empty file scanner, fast search, file shredder (drives/files/folders/free space), folder hider, force deleter for locked files, Internet speed tuner, junk cleaner, memory optimizer, one-click cleaner, password generator, privacy cleaner, program uninstaller, process monitor, registry cleaner, registry defrag, services and application startup manager, shortcuts fixer, startup/shutdown accelerator, system information tool, system optimizer

Some other tools are included in Wise Care 365, like an advanced privacy cleaner, big files manager, and context menu cleaner, but they aren't free to use.

    My Thoughts on Wise Care 365

    Wise Care 365 may be a little low on features compared to other system optimizers, but it has a really nice memory optimizer that shouldn't be overlooked.

    Wise Memory Optimizer can run when you first log on to Windows, is minimized to the system tray, and can be executed when memory usage exceeds a particular amount. Memory can even be optimized with this tool when the computer is idle.

    I like this feature because you don't have to manually run it. It sits in the notification area constantly and doesn't seem to use very many system resources. You can run it manually, but configuring it and forgetting about it is the easiest way to use it.

    As I've written above, a disk cleaner is included in Wise Care 365. This cleaner is a little different than similar programs because there's also an Advanced Cleaner that can scan for certain file types. For example, you can scan all attached hard drives for file types like FTS, DMP, thumbs.db, BAK, and LOG. These are normally associated with files that you don't need because they're either temporary or backup files. It can also find empty files and invalid shortcuts.

    As you make your way around the program, you'll notice a PRO label on several buttons. This means that particular feature is only available in the upgraded, paid version of Wise Care 365. Most of the professional features are actually options you can find in similar free programs like Baidu PC Faster and Toolwiz Care.

    When you close Wise Care 365, an advertisement to buy the full version is oftentimes displayed, which can be annoying if you never plan to upgrade. But overall, if you're looking for a simple to use free system optimizer, give Wise Care 365 a try.
