    "Works better than Comcast EasySolve."

    April 20, 2012  |   By LikaLaruku

    Version: Desktop Doctor 2.5.5

    Pros

    Comcast discontinued Desktop Doctor & replaced it with Easy Solve, which is broken from the getgo. My mother also tried ES on her computer with no luck. We reinstalled DD.

    Our modem craps out on us all the time & running DD refreshes the IP address. That's what it's useful for.

    Installing Easysolve will uninstall DD. CCleaner will also uninstall DD.

    Cons

    "Absolutely Useless"

    March 11, 2011  |   By angelfish276

    Version: Desktop Doctor 2.5.5

    Pros

    It makes you *think* you're making some kind of progress...

    Cons

    Everything

    Summary

    If only I could give it 0 stars... It spends 80 seconds testing your connectivity, and if it can't connect, it spends another 80 seconds testing it again before it even attempts to launch into a troubleshooter. (Which by that time your connection probably re-established itself and it claims it "solved" your issue.) The "troubleshooter" offers some bogus steps to reset your browser settings, which doesn't solve the problem, and then it runs out of solutions. It's a complete waste of disk space.
