First off - what are you talking about? You have walked into a room and
asked a question with no background. Didn't give any details. Nothing.
What are you expecting.

Secondly - an Internet searcher might do a quick search like this:
http://www.google.com/search?q="Advanced+System+Care"+"Windows+XP"

And come up with the possibility you are speaking of this:
http://www.iobit.com/advancedwindowscareper.html

The point being - people should not have to search to figure out what you
are asking for... ;-) It could be they are right (or just good/lucky at
searching) or that they are completely off-base if they decide to try and
answer you at all.

Now - assuming the link to the above product is correct... My suggestion is
don't get it. If you have a brain, know how to use a computer in the
slightest, everything you need to keep that computer running smoothly for
years to come is easily gotten and generally free. Applications designed
around a single idea usually work best for that single idea and usually work
better than applications designed as a one-size-fits-all app. Works that
way in just about everything.

Decent antivirus (Avira AntiVir or eSest NOD32), decent antimalware
(Malwarebytes), good backups (dozens of ways people can do this - an easy
one is the Seagate Replica drive if they are not interested in too much
manual labor but complete system backup and versioning), common maintenance
tasks (defragmentation, CHKDSK, uninstalling unused applications, keeping
copies of your installation media/files/serial numbers/product keys away
from the computer and updated, operating system and application updates,
etc) and a little common computing sense (don't do stupid things, don't use
the computer as an administrative level user all the time, down't open
attachments willy-nilly, don't try out every piece of software you can on
your production machine, etc.)

Advanced System Care is a "glorified" registry defragmenter bundled
with other tools. The newer version does not do a good job.

In general, registry defragmenter software will cause more problems
than they fix.

No. not worth it.

No. not worth it.

Also, it is not a Microsoft product.
