I love Auslogics. You probably use their BoostSpeed and Disk Sefrag. Both excellent at their tasks.

Browser Care won’t do anything you can’t do from within each browser, but it affords you a single ‘go to’ window to do it all for all your browsers using the tabs.

Features:

  1. Keep a watch on your home page and change the hijacked home page, if need be
  2. Remove unwanted toolbars, add-ons and plugins
  3. Set your preferred search engine as default and keep a watch on it
  4. Clear browser cache to unclutter your drive.

I thought this was a rather nice touch: Browser Care integrates with Auslogic's "Rescue Center". This allows you to undo any changes which might cause you problems.

 

The extension/plugin list for each browser appears in the central window which scrolls. If you decide to get rid of one, it will be uninstalled from your computer. It also has links for more info on tool bars/addons/extensions/plugins.

One minus, though: In the search engine box there's no way to extend the available search engine (i.e. DuckDuckGo). You'll have to do that from inside the browser itself. It will then appear on the list of search engines in the search engine window, as can be seen in my screen shot.

You can download it here (it’s free): http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/browser-care/

Well, I tried it, but after using it, all my Firefox bookmarks disappeared. Luckily I have backups. One other problem it caused is when I click on Show all Bookmarks, there is nothing there, no bookmarks at all, yet they are all there on my toolbar and on the list when I click Bookmarks. Tee bookmarks sidebar is also blank.

Needless to say I deleted the software, all the functions it performs can be easily done from within the browser itself.

Odd...I had none of those problems, Tom. You sure you didn't do something?

Quoting DrJBHL,

Nope, I didn't do a thing Doc, right after I ran it and cleaned the cache and history only, all my bookmarks were gone.

Same thing happened to me. Have contacted Auslogics about this.

Tom...it makes a backup/restore point automatically before it cleans anything.

I just restored the backup, and you could have done the same.
