"Tried to use twice, didn't learn the first time."

November 08, 2011  |  By RonldBanfield

 |  Version: ParetoLogic Anti-Virus Plus 6.0

Pros

NONE AT ALL

Cons

Ran their repair and it stopped several programs I've used for years without a hitch.

Summary

If you like throwing away money, this is a good one to throw it away on.

Absolutely useless program if it can even be called that.

"Absolutely amazed this is still offered here!"

September 05, 2011  |  By MarkFlax

 |  Version: ParetoLogic Anti-Virus Plus 6.0

Pros

None. Zero. Zilch!

Cons

This software is a scam! It finds multiple threats and problems that you "then have to pay for the software" before it will clear them. Needless to say none of the threats or problems exist.

Summary

STAY AWAY from this! DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT! DO NOT USE IT!

WHY IS THIS rubbish still offered on Download.com?

"Tell me how to get rid of it!"

June 05, 2011  |  By lois-sez

 |  Version: ParetoLogic Anti-Virus Plus 6.0

Pros

If there ever were any, the aggravation it causes has made me forget it.

Cons

Worthless & slows up your computer. Pops up even after you've supposedly removed it.

Summary

It's been said how bad this is & that the earlier Cnet recommendation should never have happened. What I want to know is how this thing can stop popping up when I start my computer. I've supposedly deleted it using Add/Remove Programs yet I still have to click out of it whenever I start my computer.

"EPIC Fail - X"

March 26, 2011  |  By free-kenny

 |  Version: ParetoLogic Anti-Virus Plus 6.0

Pros

None - but I need more characters.

Cons

The support staff that wanted to argue about what I 'want'.

Summary

The product was not what I wanted as 'the advertising' was misleading. When I pointed this out - complete with references to the misleading advertising they avoided the issue. That didn't concern me as much as finding these reviews.

Updated on Mar 26, 2011

Update - I intended to offer feedback for the process of getting the product, but the support centre won't allow me to access my original 'request' on their 'knowledge base'. I got this message -

"You have a profile on the ParetoLogic support website, and requested that we remind you of your password.

Use the following link to access our knowledge base at any time:

http://techsupport.paretologic.com/plsupport/consumer/search.asp

Your Password:

Please contact your system admin for login assistance."

No password - and now I can't reply or update my 'request'. That says it all folks - avoid any company that avoids you when the going gets tough.

"Move On. Nothing to see here."

February 05, 2010  |  By toybuyer

 |  Version: ParetoLogic Anti-Virus Plus 6.0

Pros

Absolutely None.

Cons

Installation not only didn't help resolve the initial issue issue they advertised but slowed the computer so much that I had to uninstall to regain the use of my own computer system.

Summary

Installed the Spyware Plus after being assured it could assist me with a simple redirect to ask.com hijack.

"ParetoLogic makes every effort to protect its clients from a wide range of spyware, malware and other malicious threats" begins the email. It continues: "We feel confident that our Anti-Virsus PLUS software will provide you with the ability to eliminate this threat."

Took 30 minutes to upload. Then the real problem began. My computer ran so slow that I had to uninstall it (which took 15 minutes--all for a 21.07 MB program). I was able to regain the speed of my computer system immediately. This program is not a wise choice. I wish I had never attempted it. It never solved the initial malware problem and how can they make a promise to resolve it? I can't reinstall the software since my computer becomes so slow, I might as well have a Playskool computer! Please, research this program a little more before reconsidering.

If you decide to purchase their RegCure, watch for the automatic renewals that they set up within PayPal. Had I not received a notice from PayPal, I would not have known. I had to go into PayPal and manually disable the automatic renewals.

Move on. Nothing to see here.

"Worthless program"

January 28, 2010  |  By varthalon

 |  Version: ParetoLogic Anti-Virus Plus 6.0

Pros

Easy to download, register, and run

Cons

Downloaded and paid $40 bucks for this program to try to remove a search highjacking virus. Oh.. and for $40 buck the license lasted all of 6 days (check out their website... they are very careful not to mention how long it lasts aren't they).

Summary

$40 bucks for 6 days of a program that actually made my computer run worse. Now I get to see if their "100% satisfaction guarantee" is any better than the program.
