Editors' Review

+

This program offers the tools to optimize your PC's performance, but with most of its features disabled for the trial, we had no way of knowing if it performs as promised. What little bit we did get to experience proved to be sluggish and often times unresponsive.

PC Optimizer Pro has a straightforward user interface. Menu commands for scanning your registry, erasing tracks, and shredding files run down the left side of the window. Each command's details and actions are displayed in the same window. No matter which command we selected, the program quickly scanned and produced results. But implementing any action was another story. The program required that we enter our name and e-mail address, and ultimately, pay for the program before we could perform any of the cleaning and shredding actions. The Manage Startup feature did let us disable items from start-up, but we found the list of programs incomplete. Also, after scanning our registry, the program became unresponsive whenever we tried to select any found registry items for view.

A built-in Help feature is included with the program. Without being able to witness the full performance of this program's features, we can't give it our recommendation. This is a category packed with options and we suggest you try out other programs that let you test all of its features.

"A bad piece of software that coerces users to purchase"

November 03, 2014  |  By sc4649

 |  Version: PC Optimizer Pro 7.0.5.7

Pros

I cannot think of anything good about this program: see Cons

Cons

In my definition, this is malware: it was recommended for installation in a different software installation. Once booted up, it did a scan and identified a lot of problems that needed fixing. However, in order to fix these problems, the program will prompt you to register, so I left my name and e-mail address. The problem is, I never got the licence key, which is required to go further and it seems also to close the dialogue box. The registration did nothing but sign me up to some mailing list. And it seems to the only way to get anywhere with this program (even just close the dialogue box) is to purchase it.

Having read other reviews here, what is download.cnet.com doing? This is obviously a PUP if not a malware

"This is not an Optimizer"

July 23, 2014  |  By Greiztoph

 |  Version: PC Optimizer Pro 6.1.4.5

Pros

None to be noted at all

Cons

Slower computer, slower internet, won't let you play videos on facebook or youtube, oh they will also try threatening you and hiding how bad their program is as well if you complain to them.

Summary

Malwarebytes and adwcleaner really help to get rid of it.

"Be careful of reviews by techs of the company"

May 15, 2014  |  By offerPop5829949

 |  Version: PC Optimizer Pro 7.0.4.6

Pros

Not much can be found worthy of this software online, at least nothing that isn't said by the techs of the company that makes it.

Cons

When you read a review click on the stats of the person. If they just joined, especially at an odd time, and have only posted one review, question if they actually aren't a shell of that company trying to hype their reviews. I think for the newest version of this software this has happened. "Awesome features?" "It completely optimized my PC" in the Cons? Really? People really need to be careful of false reviews.

Summary

I now have to pull this software off of a PC at work. It has completely gummed up a computer. Thankfully Windows 7 locks out some of the things that this supposed software can do to a machine, not that I am saying "Totally awesome" on Windows 7.

"This is a scam"

March 22, 2014  |  By BMPole

 |  Version: PC Optimizer Pro 6.1.4.5

Pros

Nothing positive about this software.

Cons

Claimed to find thousands of problems in my computer system.

Upon running this software, it uninstalled Adobe Flash Player, generated pop-up ads, and slowed down the processing.

Summary

I wish that I had consulted this Website before purchasing. Buying this and installing this software is the dumbest thing I have done in a long time--a total waste of money. I made a refund claim to PayPal, citing the above reasons, but it was rejected and cannot be appealed. Stay away!!!

"Too much software will not help your computer run."

March 20, 2014  |  By 007munoz

Pros

Not only did this fix all the errors that damaged my laptop, but I can safely use my laptop knowing this product WORKS.

I bought it with several licenses, now it only has 1 license.

Summary

Trust your products or advertyised products and let the licenses work their magic.
