Review: Magic Utilities 2011 PC Utilities Suite

PCWorld: Review – Magic Utilities 2011 PC Utilities Suite

Magic Utilities includes seven functions, including an installer, startup organizer, disk cleaner and file shredder, but eviewer Ian Harac says some functions have minor bugs and the product doesn’t do enough to justify its $40 price tag.

“There are a lot of utility suites, and most verlap with each other–there just aren’t that many ways to delete temp files or set startup programs. Magic Utilities 2011 has a lot of the basics, and one or two variants I haven’t seen often–but at $40 with a 15-day free trial, it’s also on the high end, pricewise.

Clean icons and a colorful interface aid in accessing the features of Magic Utilities 2011.Magic Utilities offers seven functions: An uninstaller, a startup organizer, a process killer, disk cleaner, file shredder, file encrypter, and easy access to built-in utilities. All do the basics well enough; a few have nice touches. Unfortunately, some of them are buggy as well.”
