Editors' Review

+
An impressive interface is all that differentiates this run-of-the-mill Registry cleaner from countless competitors. A huge beetle runs from time to time across the program window, maybe to scare you into buying PC Bug Doctor. We found it disconcerting how little information and how few options this program gives you. Of course, most people will never use anything more than the Scan and Delete buttons, but we'd like a chance to review found bugs. You can schedule automatic scans, and the program lets you restore deleted items in case stability problems crop up. However, the trial version doesn't let you test how well it fixes bugs. PC Bug Doctor may be no better or worse than other Registry cleaners, but we can't say for sure--and experience has made us wary of quacks.

"Does not work on Vista"

March 12, 2009  |  By DALE_T

 |  Version: PC Bug Doctor 1.5

Pros

Used this before and worked ok, bascally a registry cleaner

Cons

bouth the soft ware and ran on system...shows 200 errors. when I go to "fix errors it leave 82 not fixed. Contacted maxium but they give me the run around. If I wanted to do all the things they asked me for, they should be paying me.

Summary

WASTE OF MONEY

"Only scans for registry errors."

November 15, 2007  |  By Zane77

 |  Version: PC Bug Doctor 1.5

Pros

PC Bug Doctor has an interesting interface, click the start scan now button. And it shows another screen, with bugs going through while it scans for registry errors. The last thing it shows is how many registry errors are found.

Cons

Unfortunately PC Bug Doctor will not repair the found registry errors, unless you pay $39.99. There are some free registry cleaners that will scan find errors and repair the found registry errors.

"Spammers and Crap"

May 16, 2007  |  By front242

 |  Version: PC Bug Doctor 1.5

Cons

It scanned my pc and found 300+ Errors. Being a Computer tech I knew this was crap. Free key was anything but at $29.95, and now I am constantly getting spammed. Thank god I only gave them my junk mail account. Ran real registry scanners and got 22 errors on one and 24 on the other. STAY AWAY!!!!!!

"Don't break your computer! This program is the solution"

November 17, 2006  |  By Rastafarian mon

 |  Version: PC Bug Doctor 1.5

Pros

It scans fast. Its amazing on how many errors an average computer can have. Its because when you install or uninstall a program, it leaves a lot of junk in your computer. Such as old short-cut that leads to non existing programs, invalid application paths, and redundant files. These makes your computer either crash, slow down, or freeze for a bit. Although I agree with one of the users that said that theres other programs that like this one that sells for less and that even has more tools. This is a free trial so it will only scan and tell you how much errors you have.

"Scam"

October 02, 2006  |  By Reborn master

 |  Version: PC Bug Doctor 1.5

Pros

Interface looks neat.

Cons

Who would pay $40 when it doesn't do what it says.It says pc bug doctor will "fix every error on your computer" and it hardly finds any errors and fixes 30% of them.You are better off with another registry cleaner than this.

"Not much bang for buck"

July 16, 2006  |  By strikey

 |  Version: PC Bug Doctor 1.5

Pros

IF it does what it says it does...then it is very quick. Unfortunately we will never know what it does as it gives no real evidence.

Cons

It totally wrecks my Network Places every time I use it by deleteing 21 network files that are in use. If there was some way to configure it (of which there isn't), then it might be a better deal.
