    "Caused Serious Computer Challenges to Recover"

    July 14, 2012  |   By k3cb

    Pros

    None that I can think of. I was surprised by the advertising that implied I could do a free scan of my computer's status. Yes, I did get a free scan. But - if I wanted to repair what Fix Catcher indentifed I had to buy the software. Very misleading advertising. On top of that a software program Driver Update also loaded and the two of them created a disaster.

    Cons

    Tech Support attempted to help recover my computer, only to make matters far worse, i.e. I was abandoned by Tech Support when the Blue Screen of Death showed its ugly head. Left to my own devices and with truly little knowledge to work with, I spent the next 15 hours trying to clean up the mess and get my computer back into an operational status.

    Summary

    STAY AWAY from this software unless you are a real computer expert. It is a bundle of different tools that perform a number of tasks some or many of which either your computer doesn't need or will cause the problems I experienced. I certainly would NEVER download any of these sorts of "bundled tool kits" ever again. A word to the wise I hope.
