Editors' review

This program includes numerous functions to improve the speed, safety, and privacy of your system, but it suffers from a couple of problems. PC Power Suite's multipage icon and menu interface confusingly includes options available only in other versions of the product. A comprehensive manual also includes information on functions not available in this version of the program. On first run, this program slowly backs up your system Registry. So slowly, in fact, that it never seems to finish. However, clicking the desktop eliminates the frozen backup dialog box.

PC Power Suite loads numerous stand-alone functions. With so many options, this program could leave users overwhelmed, but all include easily set options, and most default to start with Windows after first run. The comprehensive suite includes programs to clean your system and browsers, optimize memory, Windows, or the Registry, search for spyware, back up system files, find duplicate files, or manage icons. Function setups are similar, which helps reduce the learning curve. Most operated well, but this basic suite doesn't attempt any overly robust functions.

PC Power Suite certainly attempts to be all things to all users, but it may be a case of too much for the less-experienced user and not enough to differentiate it from other products for the advanced user.

    "Demand serial number, it's a Dud."

    March 26, 2012   |   By Old-Navy

    Version: PC Power Suite 2005

    Pros

    This program is not worth the time to download it.

    Cons

    This program is not worth the time to download it.

    Summary

    I opened the downloaded program and it demanded a serial number. I never was permitted to open the trial version. I don't feel this program is worth the price they want for it.

    "Handy, Pleasant Interface"

    August 16, 2011   |   By Nick_Ohio

    Version: PC Power Suite 2005

    Pros

    Each of the three programs that make up the Power Suite are strong enough to be free-standing apps, which they are. They are very thorough.

    Cons

    The price was a little too high for my comfort zone, but in the end, I am glad I purchased it.

    Summary

    This suite takes care of keeping your pc junk free, your drivers updated and your registry clean and compact. I can tell the difference after I have run a full scan/fix. Better than similar products, with the exception ot iolo's System Mechanic, which cannot be beaten.

    My review is for the CURRENT (2011) version of Power Suite, not the 2005 version. :-?

    January 29, 2009   |   By montjack

    Version: PC Power Suite 2005

    Pros

    None at all

    Cons

    Purchased a week ago and the download did not even work. Tried to contact customer support but it's been 5 days and nobody has responded. Don't even bother with this company.
