I’m slightly sceptical, it rates my computer a ‘C’ but every other benchmark program is giving it top marks, I have the 4th fastest processor on market, 8gb of the fastest speed RAM and a top scoring Graphics Card.

I somehow have a hunch that if I upgraded or purchased more IObit programs it would rate me higher?

Couldn’t agree less. And now it is missing in v5. You can get it by clicking status on the main window. or report.exe in the asc 5 programs folder.

ok ,…it is NOW OCTOBER 2012!!!!!!!!!!
and I just installed version 6(considerably different ‘view’ than #5)………………and as I am usually very careful about all that ‘add-on’ crap I was very surprised when this PM crud popped up—-I have emailed vendor = NO response to my query about how to KILL IT!!!!!!!! V6 does not have your ‘more/settings’ (that I can see) so other than uninstalling it, any options??????????

“PM crud” not getting your question, be clear.


badtudes October 29, 2012 at 4:39 pm

me again…finally heard from asc..heres their answer

Run your ASC V6 => and click on More Settings and Settings on the top right => and click General Settings => and uncheck Enable Performance Monitor.

I ‘think’ I ended up doing this, with a LOT of hunt/peck…dont seem to be seeing it now(and the system IS runniong a little faster now that this no longer ‘lives’!!!!!!!!!!

Its good that you found through help of ASC support, but I don’t use this program on my computer. I reviewed ASC Free v6 recently, but from version to version ASC brings interface changes so the options location also change, we can’t update the post whenever new version releases, unless when notified by readers like you through comments.
So not to trouble other users I am updating the post anyway, and let me tell you I’ve not found any difficulty in finding this.

Ya, I’d like to know what is so damn annoying about the performance monitor? I kinda like having it up there, plus you can minaturize it. Advanced System Care has some really cool stuff.

Its not annoying at all, but some don’t like it running on top of their desktop.
