"Takes over your computer"

September 13, 2014  |  By ied697

 |  Version: SlimCleaner Plus 1.0.16244.52268

Pros

none found

Cons

I accidently downloaded this software from Cnet when intending to update CC cleaner. I never used it as I knew right away I didn't want it. Tried to uninstall from the control panel. The next day the program was still there and it ran a scan without being prompted to do so. It works in the background. I tried again to uninstall and it seems to be gone now. Invasive program, beware.

"RUN!!! Don't Look Back!"

August 20, 2014  |  By Charlcie52

 |  Version: SlimCleaner Plus 1.0.16244.52268

Pros

None I deem worth the risk.

Cons

I have to say I was VERY displeased with SlimCleaner support.

I discovered SlimCleaner Plus via a web search after I found could not open my Adobe CS5 Creative Suite due to runtime errors. The SlimCleaner web ad stated that runtime errors were something that SlimCleaner Plus could take care of. I paid for 2 years of support and downloaded the software. Long story short, 3 days later, I was still dead in the water.

SlimCleaner suggested I pay them $250 and purchase a $19.99/month service contract and they would remotely fix the problem. Luckily I found a friend who suggested checking to see if my Adobe Updater was disabled. Sure enough it was. Once Adobe Updater was enabled my CS5 Creative Suite opened up no problem!

In my opinion, SlimCleaner is a predatory outfit that falsely promises fixes to problems that they have no intention of fixing because the real goal is to sell the software and a service contract to unsuspecting individuals.

Summary

PLEASE...exhaust all alternatives before downloading SlimCleaner (or any other PC Optimizer software). It was pointed out to me by the person who saved my bacon, that my Adobe Updater was undoubtedly disabled by a previous PC optimizing software so that my PC would run faster. Sometimes - ESPECIALLY if you have installed high end software like Adobe, you need to run ALL elements of that software in order that it functions properly.

I WILL say, in all fairness, that at LEAST SlimCleaner did refund my purchase price for their software. I was pretty steamed when I found out all I needed was a simply fix that somehow their "experts" seemed to miss. If you have been unfortunate enough to purchase this software, DEMAND a refund!

"A Total Disaster"

Pros

Yes, it's easy to use, requires only one click.

Cons

This program totally messed up my browser (Chrome) to the point that I was unable to read the content of many of my incoming emails. when I finally figured out what was to blame, I uninstalled it, and YAY, I have my email back!

"This is a fraudulent company"

March 03, 2014  |  By ahg

 |  Version: SlimCleaner Plus 1.0.16244.52268

Pros

NONE that I can see//cannot register

Cons

They will proxy your computer with fake error lists & overcharge you

Summary

This outfit(s) hides behind multiple names like "PC Health" and "SlimCleaner" but both do the same fraud scam:
1. They advertise a free trial but it does not happen unless you buy & register.
2. A special offer price is advertised but when you complete the purchase your credit card is charged almost double under the excuse that they are extending the registration to 2 years or adding an extra software (Neither openly offered and certainly not requested)
3. I filed 2 complaints with my credit card who will report further, and I will report these two myself to the FTC.
4. The most disgusting detail is that they claim to be "Microsoft Gold Certified" If they really are then Microsoft is liable by proxy for harm done to clients: Not a good thing for Microsoft, it should take care to whom it bestows this award.
5. The software may be good but if sold under fraudulent conditions, Microsoft endorsement, the way it is presented, covers the whole company and its DBA, not just the product. CNET beware also. I am a retired Patent Agent and this is slippery ground you are standing on.
