Remove Advanced-System-Optimizer
Powered by Reason Antivirus


Advanced-System-Optimizer is a software program developed by ASO3. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named aso3.exe. The setup package generally installs about 59 files and is usually about 45.76 MB (47,981,112 bytes). The installed file CheckUpdate.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 10 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 43% of users of Advanced-System-Optimizer come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and France.
