"Do Not Waste Your Time"

April 25, 2006  |  By atlantamike33

 |  Version: PC First Aid 3.5

Pros

This might be a good program, but you'd never know from the Trial version. You waste your time downloading, installing and running only to find that the system makes you buy the program if you want it. You can hardly even call the free download version a "trial" version.

Cons

The trial version won't solve any problems you have. Found 268 - so-called - problems.. and fixed 5 of them. If you're looking for an applicaiton to find and fix problems.. this isn't it.. At least the trial version isn't. But who wants to buy an unknown program like this without first trying it out.

"Great, great tool"

April 21, 2006  |  By JunyaT

 |  Version: PC First Aid 3.5

Pros

Wow, what a great tool. I've had a tough time during the past 10 days, my PC's been slow, slow, slow! PC Doc Pro scanned my PC in a couple of mins, and the fix was a whizz. Good bye computer problems!!!

Cons

NO CONS - JUST PROS!

"after cleaning errors i couldn't access the internet"

April 11, 2006  |  By timram420

 |  Version: PC First Aid 3.5

Pros

not for the novice pc user and make sure you know how to restore your machine

Cons

The initial repair totally knocked out all internet connection. I restored the machine and removed a few errors at a time and figured out what entry was causing the problem.

"Excellent, safe utility to keep your reg clean - highly recommended"

March 24, 2006  |  By 410customp3

 |  Version: PC First Aid 3.5

Pros

I like the registry back up utility. I like the simple interface that PC Doc Pro provides. It makes for simple, quick, and reliable clean-up of my system. I have used the registry back-up a couple of times where I have rescanned my system with another, albeit free, registry cleaner (Abexo, for those who care, which also is excellent, but can find too many things wrong, but creates problems when you clean them)and needed to restore the registry to any earlier state. Worked perfectly, and then rescanned without cleaning everything found.

Cons

Does not find all items in the registry that point to a file that no longer exists. Other than that, it works seamlessly, and reliably. I just wish I could clean up all those extra "File doesn't exist" files without creating havoc.

"only removes 5 problems at a time"

March 19, 2006  |  By surfer23

 |  Version: PC First Aid 3.5

Pros

Finds hundreds of potential problems, yet it can only remove 5 unless you buy.

Cons

Scam to make you buy the software, if it truly would remove all problems it might be okay...But to say you have 200 problems but we can only fix 5 is not prudent. Do not download this software unless you plan on spending the $30. The trial version is not good for anything at all.

"Grossly Deceitful..."

March 03, 2006  |  By Et Al

 |  Version: PC First Aid 3.5

Pros

Pretty icon.

Cons

Looking at the mass postings in the beginning, it was very obvious that the company selling the product has spammed the review board. This alone screams BUYER BEWARE! If they were so confident in their product they would never have resorted to such an illegal tactic to boost sales. So NO - I will NOT trust the product nor the company. Just look at the dates and times of the posts in the beginning. Way too obvious what's going on! BTW - the editor's review has been discredited as well.

"Product did not work as claimed."

February 05, 2006  |  By besteven

 |  Version: PC First Aid 3.5

Cons

One of Neurosoft's primary claims for PCDocPro is that it stops "freezing". Their software was not able to fix my computer's freezings, nor were their technicians able to determine the problem--they instead directed me to download Spybot, HiJackThis, and AdAware, which I already had. Not recommended.

"A dangerous scam"

February 02, 2006  |  By lednerg

 |  Version: PC First Aid 3.5

Pros

Has buttons. Easy to spell.

Cons

Most (if not all) of the positive reviews here were posted by Neurosoft, who publishes this software. That should tell you enough right there, but I'll go on:

Everything from what the program does to the (un-resizable) interface is useless. It's a sloppily written program that can and probably will ruin your PC, even if you think you know what you're doing. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all tool that can do everything without user input.

If you are having PC problems, your best bet is to check Google for "tech support forum". You will find a ton of FREE message boards full of actual humans who are more than happy to help you out. These people are selflessly offering their services for free, and are much more capable and knowledgeable than some scam program like PC Doc. They are friendly folks who have seemingly infinite patience.

The registry is the heart of Windows. You wouldn't want an autonomous robot to do surgery on your heart, so why would let one do it to your computer?

Cons

Scans the computer tells you it has problems then asks for money
