    "Not worth Thirty Dollars at all, or even downloading."

    January 6, 2014  |   By Not-My-Problem

    Version: SpeedUpMyPC 2014 5.13.12.0

    Pros

    Absolutely none.

    Cons

    ~Fakes errors.
    ~Makes you pay to fix the fake errors.
    ~Scare ware, basically, because it kept opening warning windows that would tell me to buy to fix the errors.
    ~It is a trashy registry cleaner, which we all know are harmful, useless, and can possibly destroy your computer by deleting critical registry keys.

    Summary

    The software was terrible. It seems more on the edge of scare ware than a trusted registry cleaner. It gives you thousands of errors, which I assure you, are all just harmless registry keys. I don't know why CNet gave it a good rating, because I thought that it was TOTAL trash. Shame on you! The publisher is highly unrecommended or untrustworthy, and their website has fake reviews that were obviously stages and was blacklisted as fraudulent by HPHosts. Definitely do not use this useless junk.

    Summary

    you uninstall SpeedUpMyComputer it installs FixMyRegistry you uninstall FixMyRegistry it installs SpeedUpMyComputer over and over EVEN after following the uninstall instructions that says press skip to not install. Had to manually go in to registry to remove all entries and boot to Linux to remove files.

    "Awful Experience - Do Not Install This Software"

    August 13, 2013  |   By vabutter

    Version: SpeedUpMyPC 2014 5.3.4.5

    Pros

    No benefits - the software runs and says it updates ther registry but I saw no changes to performance and really wonder WHAT it is doing to the registry

    Cons

    1) Software not stay registered.. I had to re-register the key every time I booted up.
    2) Tech support was totally NOT helpful - they told me to remove my anti-virus software, my anti-spam software and my password software - which I will not do.
    3) After installing an "update" to Uniblue, a Malware Bytes scan determined that the Uniblue software was loaded with adware and malware. I uninstalled Uniblue completely and lost my purchase $
    4) Beware - Uniblue automatically charges your credite card anually whether you renew or not - it is in the fine print.

    Summary

    I do not recommend this software nor this company - I will not do business with them again.

    "Doesn't work - failed to achieve any speed improvements"

    June 26, 2013  |   By Suntechsyd

    Version: SpeedUpMyPC 2014 5.3.4.5

    Pros

    Minor processing footprint.

    Cons

    The software failed to provide any noticeable improvements to boot-time, processing speed and program through-put.

    The claims of the software could not be demonstrably substantiated.

    The package just took up RAM and processing power like an additional and annoying browser add-on.

    Summary

    Definitely not worth the purchase price.

    One would be better off investing in additional RAM to improve PC/Laptop performance.

    I took the route of buying RAM for which I paid $45 (AUD) instead of wasting $30 (AUD) on this software.

    *Lesson learned and I will not be recommending and Uniblue products.

    "Another program that CLAIMED to be free, but wasn't."

    June 18, 2013  |   By onedesertrat

    Version: SpeedUpMyPC 2014 5.3.4.5

    Pros

    None that I could see.

    Cons

    This is just another program that CLAIMS to be "free" but isn't.

    Summary

    I was reading CNET's review of Google Chrome. Next to it (NOT marked as an "Ad") was a warning to run this "free" program before downloading the Google program. I saved this "SpeedUp..." program, ran it and THEN found out it was NOT FREE. I'm sick of these programs that CLAIM TO BE FREE.
