    "Locks down browser"

    January 7, 2007  |   By granshome

    Version: PC-Clean 1.2.2

    Pros

    Fast scan, but didn't (fortunately) detect any malware. However, it did clean up registry of remnants of previous uninstalls.

    Cons

    I opened my IE browser. The Home Page was the same but the search page could not be found, then when I attempted to go to Google, MSN, Yahoo and a few other sites I was taken to a Netpia page offering some search options if one signed up to a pay service. I finally had to uninstall it after struggling to find a way to overcome the problem unsuccessfully. Immediately, my browser returned to normal functioning.

    Also, there were no problems associated with the uninstall process.

    One more thing...

    Before placing this review, I searched CNET for PC CLean. I thought to research PC Clean more and click the link to it, under the, "From Our Sponsers". It is listed thusly, "Pc Clean

    Visit Web Site Free, safe & easy scan. Winner of Best Registry Cleaner. 5 Star Rated...".

    It took me straight to PCTools.com's Registry Mechanic. This is clearly misleading and a very deceptive practice.

    I am a bit disappointed that CNET would participate in this type of misdirection.

    "Contains malware!"

    November 11, 2006  |   By butler360

    Version: PC-Clean 1.2.2

    Cons

    Nod32 (excellent anti-malware) prevented a file from being installed during setup. I pressed ignore on the installer and it went ahead and installed the rest without a problem. So I run a scan and it finds 21 problems on a computer I KNOW is clean! One "problem" it detects is that my homepage is Google! It calls it "IE-Settings." The only thing it did find that could be legitimately malware is actually a dummy file of adware that is required to run a program I have. But, again, that's just a dummy file with the same name of a malware file. With other excellent free alternatives, I wouldn't risk this one.

    "Beware Malware!"

    November 10, 2006  |   By jdstrand

    Version: PC-Clean 1.2.2

    Cons

    After installing this utility I noticed that my browser had been hijacked! I had a h*ll of a time figuring out what went wrong. One of the search pages that kept coming up was a Korean search page. I checked and PC-Clean is a product of Net-pia, a Korean company.

    C-net had this to say

    ------------------------

    "Response from CNET support (Nina) 11/10/2006 07:13 AM

    Hello,

    The re-testing showed that PC-Clean installs a Browser Helper Object, but it can be be appropriate within the programs of this category. After the malware removal application offers to change the default browser page but one can reject this offer and preserve original settings. All spyware removal utilities haven't found anything abnormal after PC-Clean installation.

    Nina

    Customer Service"

    ------------------------

    So, C-net seems to say that it is OK for a company to surreptiously change my browser because other malware detectors will take of the problem. Use at your own peril.

    "Cons and cons"

    September 30, 2006  |   By PrashantGogoi

    Version: PC-Clean 1.2.2

    Pros

    Internet history cleaner (also cleans urls and auto complete entries, which is good), the IE BHO manager.

    Cons

    Don't know how effective a spyware cleaner it is as I usually run Ad-Aware, HijackThis and SpyCatcher for cleaning. PC-Clean also loads a "Easy Address Helper" program in the control panel which I removed thru HijackThis as it seemed like spyware but it could just be a url resolver.

    "Uninstallation HELL!!!!"

    September 13, 2006  |   By DoubleVision19

    Version: PC-Clean 1.2.2

    Pros

    Scans were fast

    Cons

    Scans were fast, but it makes you think if it is really doing a complete scan. Also, when I uninstalled the program, it also deleted then menus from your "All Programs" list. Beware when you uninstall this program.

I got rid of 217 bad spyware. the best thing aboutit only took 5 minutes or lwss.
