    "Caution! Will erase printers in Control Panel"

    May 27, 2013  |   By JimFalcon069069069

    Version: Privacy Guardian 4.1.0.37

    Pros

    Easy to use

    Cons

    ERASES any traces of installed printers in Control Panel. Technical live support is clueless and worthless. Their only response was restore Windows! Tech support is clueless on this software and what it does.

    "Total P.O.S. - glad I didn't buy it. Version 4.5"

    April 24, 2011  |   By no-spamrz

    Version: Privacy Guardian 4.1.0.37

    Pros

    None. Zero. Wasted an hour of my time.

    Cons

    I ran & "cleaned" with Privacy Guardian.
    Rebooted.
    Ran CCleaner, Adv. Sys. Care & Privacy Mantra again. Got the same exact results as before Privacy Guardian.
    NOT ONE %#&@! thing had been deleted, except Firefox's Add-ons and bookmarks.

    Summary

    Either the people who gave this mess a positive review are noobs, or they're getting PAID to write good reviews.

    "Finds more junk than Ccleaner!!!!!!!"

    November 19, 2010  |   By colinh25

    Version: Privacy Guardian 4.1.0.37

    Pros

    very good product, it finds more junk on your hard-drive than Ccleaner!!!!!

    Cons

    none!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Summary

    it's a very good tool to have on your computer, it found more hidden junk files on my hard drive than Ccleaner,

    trust me, Ccleaner missed a lot!!!!!

    Updated on Nov 19, 2010

    i feel much more safe with this product, Ccleaner leaves way to many junk files behind.. PG also has a disk bleacher and a file shredder :D

    Updated on Nov 19, 2010

    this program is very fast at cleaning, you can refresh your computer instead of restarting it, it's easy and simple to use.

    "Works great!"

    August 12, 2010  |   By Will__Smith

    Version: Privacy Guardian 4.1.0.37

    Pros

    Runs fast, which is really important to me!

    Took a long time to download, but maybe that's CNET? haha

    "This product screwed up my browsers pretty bad."

    May 27, 2010  |   By kakarasa82

    Version: Privacy Guardian 4.1.0.37

    Pros

    It seemed to remove all "errors" except for 3 with the demo.

    Cons

    It totally screwed up everything on my browsers from the simple yahoo homepage to everything that required flash or any plugin, app, or otherwise (even the ones I WANT to work). I had to spend hours getting things back to where they were.

    Summary

    If you download this it may work for you, but I'd bet it will also really make you angry and wish you hadn't. :(

    "A load of trouble"

    March 17, 2010  |   By kusmo

    Version: Privacy Guardian 4.1.0.37

    Pros

    Nothing to like. Would not work.

    Cons

    I'm using XP. When I installed the program, it would not update the list. It also prevented me from browsing the internet. Spent over an hour trying to right the problems.

    Summary

    I restarted the computer but the problems were still there. I tried to remove the program, by first disabling, but to no avail. Restarted the computer and then was able to uninstall via the uninstall file in the peerguardian folder. Could not reconnect to the internet until I reset my modem. Some files are still left in the peerguardian folder after the uninstall.

    "Not bad, not bad."

    January 1, 2010  |   By SecurityRater

    Version: Privacy Guardian 4.1.0.37

    Pros

    It clears out tracks pretty quickly. I have liked it not so badly. Features are pretty good, too.

    Cons

    Pretty expensive for such a program.

    Summary

    It's not so bad, after all, PC Tools has enabled about 75% of its features.

    Pros

    Cons

    Nothing bad to say... Maybe it's not too fast, because the interface is complex...
