    "Absolutely horrendous program"

    April 08, 2011   |   By bigcatguy

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    None that come to mind.

    Cons

    It screwed up Google Chrome so badly I had to uninstall it and then do a reinstall. It deleted all my last documents in MS Word as well. Added an automatic update feature to PayPal - fortunately they notified me and I cancelled that.

    Summary

    I wouldn't wish this POS program on my worst enemy!

    "Rip Off - Not Free"

    March 12, 2011   |   By flhtp01

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    None - Only takes your money.

    Cons

    They add another package with it and tack on another $10 - ending up costing you $39.95 and activating automatic renewal which you have to go to the site and manually change. Can't see where the software did much.

    Summary

    Do NOT Buy!!!

    "Only caused more frustration. Not worth the money."

    March 11, 2011   |   By tisue001

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Appeared to be promising.

    Cons

    After 1 day of use, it seems PC Health Advisor did more damage than good. After cleaning my registry, at least two of my main programs were deleted from Start Menu; video playback in Windows Media Player is glitchy; Battlefield Bad Company 2 crashes

    Summary

    I DO NOT recommend this program to anyone. It seems the changes it made to my registry were for the worse. As I stated above: programs I use frequently were deleted from my Start Menu, watching videos using Windows Media Player is no longer possible because of constant freezes and skips, and playing Battlefield Bad Company 2 is now plagued with computer freezes. None of these were issues prior to the use of PC Health Advisor. Another annoyance is the deletion of all the icons for my links in Google Chrome; they have been replaced with the blank white page icon.

    In the end, perhaps PC Health Advisor could do some good, but for me it seems that all it's done is caused more problems.

    I just contacted ParetoLogic requesting they honor their 60-day Money Back Guarantee and give me a full refund. I hope they don't jerk me around. I just want to be rid of it and attempt to undue whatever it did.

    I used to use Registry Mechanic and think I will look into using that again.

    "Some parts work, some don't"

    February 12, 2011   |   By gilmore29

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Does a pretty comprehensive analysis.

    Cons

    After "fixing" the registry problems, they are repeated during the next scan. Never could download the drivers it said I needed, and it said I needed a driver that was already updated.

    Summary

    Not as reliable as I would have liked.

    "Total rip off"

    February 09, 2011   |   By meichells

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    NONE, no pros at all

    Cons

    Doesn't work as described!

    Summary

    I downloaded this product and am not only NOT satisfied with the product but also with their "customer support". I began having issues with my USB ports not working and when I Googled the issue people said that my drivers needed updating and suggested this product to help keep my laptop updated and working well. I purchased it and tried to download the drivers it suggests. None of the drivers that I need will download, I get "unable to connect to the server" every time. I tried contacting customer support the same day I purchased this and have contacted them again. It's been almost 2 weeks and no reply. So much for their "satisfaction guaranteed" policy! I do NOT recommend this product as it does NOT do what it promises and they do NOT have even halfway decent customer support!!! It's a total rip off!

    Pros

    This is one of the best all around pieces of software to keep registry files in good order. Has a good defragmenter keepstrack of updates for drivers and has one of the easiest intrfaces I have ever used.

    Cons

    I convinced a friend to buy the Health Advisor and he did not notice the addition of the anti-virus program at first.He emailed PARETOLOGIC immediately to correct the mistake and they never respond.
