"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.

"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 01, 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.

Cons

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