One of WinZip's best features is Smart PC Care, which implements an assortment of scans to find problems that may be infecting your computer. It allows you to customize your scans so you can choose which of your computer's systems to inspect, including drivers, files on the hard drive, registry errors and privacy traces.

A System and Security Advisor is available to manage files and data on your PC, and to optimize settings. You can schedule set times for scans to run on your computer and choose scan frequency.

This PC system utilities software has a simple interface that even a novice computer user will master in no time. WinZip's tools will let you easily and quickly fix problems you've diagnosed. The Startup Manager sorts through and removes unnecessary startup applications on your computer to help it run faster during startup. The Uninstall Manager lets you free up disk space and keeps your computer running smoothly.

There's no need to fear computer crashes and subsequent loss of files with WinZip on your side. This software provides a Backup Manager to ensure your files are copied and safely stored. If something happens, the Restore System Files feature will restore all backed-up files. And this software allows you to restore a file to its original location after it has been deleted. Conversely, the Secure Deletion tool will let you permanently damage any file so that it cannot be restored, if you have a need to keep information confidential.

Another benefit to using WinZip is its several optimization features, including a registry cleaner that finds registry errors and removes them. You can schedule the cleaner to work on a regular basis to keep your computer efficient. It has the ability to analyze your hard drive and defrag it, which means it will remove file fragments it finds. It also has a memory optimizer and can repair your hard drive should it be damaged. It diagnoses the problem, manages your settings and files and recovers lost data. It also predicts and prevents data loss through a hard-drive failure detection feature.

This PC system utilities software has an easy-to-use interface that offers one-click features and fluid navigation. You don't have to search through several menus or options to perform a task. Just a few clicks of the mouse and WinZip does the rest, ensuring your computer is clean and that it runs smoothly when you need it most.

User options are located prominently on a sidebar menu on each page of the software. You don't have to sort through menus or windows to find what you need. Graphics and images are part of WinZip's reporting system. When viewing information that the software aggregates on your computer, it provides the data and information as images to help you understand it. There are no weighty lists of mind-numbing numbers.

Piracy and identity theft through the internet are a large concern for many PC users. Not so with the WinZip System Utilities Suite. It provides security features to eliminate any potential theft problems, including a privacy protector that removes all traces to personal information that may be stored on your computer's registry. It clears any trace of your activity on the internet, including history and cookies. Your personal information and web-viewing habits are safe with WinZip.

Email support is available if you experience problems while using the software or have questions or concerns. You can link to online help from within the software, and there's a knowledgebase with helpful FAQs to guide you step by step. WinZip's website offers a support-ticket system that lets you submit a ticket for specific problems or issues that may arise. The company does not offer live chat support.

WinZip System Utilities Suite is an all-in-one solution to keep your computer running smoothly and efficiently. It helps you diagnose problems, manage settings and files, and repair or recover lost data. It's easy to use, and once configured for your specific needs, works well to keep your computer safe, fast and sound.
