"free programs better with more trust"

January 11, 2014  |  By awm7353

 |  Version: PC Tune-Up 2.2.0.1

Pros

might actually work

Cons

Had installed this on another computer and after installing on another, it said my account had opted in for partner emails. I never opt in for anything. Said it would send an email on how to access my account to edit this. Never received email. Go to their website and find no way to access an account, but it sure likes to re-direct to other websites and tell me my browser is out of date when it's not. Lost all trust immediately and uninstalled.

"Easy to use - Did what it said it would."

November 01, 2013  |  By FredGarvinMP

 |  Version: PC Tune-Up 2.2.0.1

Pros

Ease of use, can run with a single button push. I am not super tech savvy guy and I was easily able to use all the tools in this program.

Cons

None at this point. I will return with an update if I find any issues.

Summary

Got this as part of a suite and it is my favorite tool in the suite so far. Would recommend to anyone like me who is not super tech savvy as it is so easy to use.

September 14, 2013  |  By ckcomodo

 |  Version: PC Tune-Up 2.2.0.1

Pros

Wrong program. Trying to describe something called Warp Speed PC-Tuneup which is apparently not this one.

Cons

Please disregard comments.

Summary

Please disregard anything in this review, CNET directed me to the wrong PC Tune-Up here.

"What does this actually DO?"

September 14, 2013  |  By crsecon

 |  Version: PC Tune-Up 2.2.0.1

Pros

Unknown. ???????????

Cons

Scanned as instructed . Got a score showing how fast handled large programs, with no other reference point. Ran program. Only result was could get a spreadsheet of running programs, no other indications. Reran; score was now lower than when started.

Summary

Obviously do not need this as it reports itself lowering performance without doing anything visible.

"Does not work for me."

September 05, 2012  |  By kusmo

 |  Version: PC Tune-Up 2.1.1.15

Pros

Seems to find the errors.

Cons

Purchased a full copy through Zonealarm. Installed ok. Finds the same faults over and over again after every restart. Cannot leave on auto start because it will continuously restart the computer after completing analysis and clean. I live outside USA and therefore cannot contact "large Software" regarding this issue. Cannot contact Zonealarm for refund because the cost of phone call is more than the cost of product. No email refund facility exists. Zonealarm did not advise purchaser of this being a third party product.

Summary

Not advisable to buy product online if outside of USA. Support is Difficult on third party product. Cost of refund is not worth the hassle. Probably won't buy any product from Zonealarm online.

"Does what it says it will"

January 25, 2012  |  By FredGarvinMP

 |  Version: PC Tune-Up 2.1.1.15

Pros

Fast, did what it really said it would do and REALLY easy to use, the one button function makes it easy for me as I am a little older and have a little trouble understanding the options on some programs I download on CNET.

Cons

None at this point as I have only used it once so far, however I think the "Magic Button" should be moved to the top of the menu so a new user can see it right away.

Summary

I would recommend.

"Happy this- time Didn't read system requirements before"

January 25, 2012  |  By jessicamartin077

 |  Version: PC Tune-Up 2.1.1.15

Pros

Very happy with the program this time around, it cleaned up my Dell laptop, which took forever to load, and sped up my overall usage. Also their support was pretty helpful when I had questions originally about why the program was crashing my machine, come to find out I downloaded the version on here that was not win7 compatible...I should have read the system requirements more closely

Cons

I wish when I first downloaded the program from here, there was a way for the program to tell that I was running windowns7 and could have stopped the install. Overall, it was my fault for not reading the system requirements which did not include windows7 as an option

Summary

I will be more careful next time when I download anything from download.com to make sure the system requirements match my actual computer. Overall this product worked great for me, and after reading the reviews it sounds like most people had the same problem I did, downloading a Vista version on Win7, not the products fault we didn't read the system requirements

"received call tellng me they received errors from my pc"

January 03, 2012  |  By bawbdgr

 |  Version: PC Tune-Up 2.0

Pros

There are no pros to this product

Cons

Totally shaddy operation. I received call from "Joe" (sounded like he was from India) saying he received error files from my PC. I asked how he knew my PC was the one sending these messages. He asked for my email address so he could send me the files. I aasked to speak to a manager and he hung up.

Summary

Must be a scam.
