"Thank you for all the negative reviews."

October 22, 2007  |  By Michael Tsark

 |  Version: Speed It Up Free 4.6

Cons

You saved me the entrapment headaches and I appreciate it. I don't trust any scam mentality that claim things are free when in truth they are not. I'm so glad I read the reviews first. Special thanks to CNET for providing the review feature.

"Total Crap"

October 22, 2007  |  By BozoBlippo

 |  Version: Speed It Up Free 4.6

Cons

Chris Pirillo and Download should be embarrassed! This is come-on crap that's not really free. Worse, it loads unrequested crapware on your computer and doesn't actually do what it claims unless you pay. You can bet the two glowing reviews in this list are from the garbagemen who are marketing this junk.

"Free is a misnomer"

October 22, 2007  |  By TerranceJ.

 |  Version: Speed It Up Free 4.6

Cons

The softwear really isn't shareware as it isn't free. You may be able to download it, but it cost to use all of the functions.

"Sick of 'Free' Software for marketing other Software"

October 22, 2007  |  By gregzucc

 |  Version: Speed It Up Free 4.6

Pros

Only what the initial marketing blurb says...the rest is cr*p.

Cons

It is fraudulent to pupport that software is 'free' when only a component of it is and furthermore loads other cr*p that you never asked for in the first place...and then often has a negative effect on your PC allowing all sorts of things to be loaded and accessed without your permission. Download.Com should have better safegaurds against this for us..

"wolf in sheep's clothing"

October 21, 2007  |  By cyberdave03

 |  Version: Speed It Up Free 4.6

Pros

Nothing I could see.

Cons

Although this software represents itself as "free", this is another of those 'it doesn't cost anything to actually download it, but you have to pay to get it to fully work' duplicitous programs. I uninstalled it and good riddance.

"Trouble - STAY AWAY ! Seriously..."

October 20, 2007

 |  Version: Speed It Up Free 4.6

Pros

This program ran for about 30 minutes or so on my new Vista machine, cleaning up files, defragmenting, and "speeding up the machine". However, after I rebooted, Wndows Vista was no longer recognized, and I was forced to rebuild the machine from scratch. All attempts at recovery did not work.

So, USE THIS SOFTWARE AT YOUR OWN PERIL!

Cons

It contains additional software that you are unaware of, but it wiped out my OPERATING SYSTEM. How is THAT for bad?

"I don't like surprises!"

October 20, 2007  |  By melM

 |  Version: Speed It Up Free 4.6

Cons

When you install this, read the agreement before clicking ok. It installs what is called search defender which keeps your search engine at google and won't allow it to be changed. Despite this, I installed the program. To my surprise, it also installs a program called PC checkup 3. This utility can scan for problems but won't fix them unless you register. I clicked register to see what it would do and I got warning from my Antispyware and Antivirus software stating it was changing Internet Explorer's Security Zones. Also, it changes the registry so that it keeps coming up at computer restart. I still went ahead and tried it to see if it really worked. I saw no performance gain.

Anytime you slip extra software on a computer without permission or not stating you did so in the agreement to install it, you are doing us wrong!!! Isn't that illegal???

I was going to throw my computer out of the window. It took forever just to get anything to run. Now my PC feels like it did when it was brand new.
