Editors' Review

+
Like a magician, this speed-up utility merely misdirects. It only alludes to system performance improvement; the demo just scans and recommends registration. SpeedUpMyPC's well-constructed and attractive interface cleanly presents system information. Optimization wizards open with a single click, or advanced users can easily start individual scans. Memory, CPU, Disk, and Startup scans present accurate use information, but most optimization commands just lead to a registration reminder. That makes it almost impossible to test speed-up claims. The Uninstall Manager and File Shredder offer a bit more testability. You can shred five files, and uninstalling programs appears unrestricted. Both functions simplify use over their Windows counterparts. File Clean Up scans quickly and offers selection of individual entries, but it is also restricted. SpeedUpMyPC's help file is novice-friendly, but lacks details for advanced users. Demos should give users an accurate portrayal of the registered software, but SpeedUpMyPC is all scan and show.

"Zero functionality to try!!!!"

July 07, 2007  |  By LEO O FORTUGALEZA

 |  Version: SpeedUpMyPC 3

Pros

Uniblue knows how to use colors!!!!

Cons

Tried an older version before but SpeedUpMyPC ate up my more important registry keys without a warning. Iobit's Advanced WindowsCare Personal 2.5is the better freebie & at least has acceptable functionality for most novice techies. Sorry guys at Uniblue but your trial version allows no trial at all. If I may mention another product, Auslogics offers another good alternative defragmenter.

"Installed itself without permission"

August 20, 2008  |  By interactbiz

 |  Version: SpeedUpMyPC 3

Cons

My cursor passed over a link on an unrelated page and that was apparently enough for the program to install itself without overt permission. As a result, I will never trust the software supplier and will not be a customer. I hope the program uninstall works cleanly.

"Quite good"

August 15, 2008  |  By Sakura Kiss

 |  Version: SpeedUpMyPC 3

Pros

It cleans up many junk files and optimize your system. I kinda noticed a slight improvement to my system when i use it. I was afraid i would be disappointed due to all the low review points given.

Cons

It doesn't really improve my pc performance significantly. The application booster doesn't really work so well for me.

"Worked great for me!"

August 01, 2008  |  By cropperjim

 |  Version: SpeedUpMyPC 3

Pros

I have to believe that all those folks who hated this software must not have needed much performance improvement. My machine was nearly unusable. SpeedUpMyPC gave my machine back to me. It works great now.

Cons

They need to make it clear before you run the free scan that there is nothing else you can do after that. It's irritating to run the scan and have it give me no real information and then make me pay to see if the program will work.

I was nervous after seeing all the bad reviews here but good reviews on other sites helped me decide.

"I rather download CCleaner..."

June 02, 2008  |  By noobishlolol

 |  Version: SpeedUpMyPC 3

Pros

Cleans... Wheres the speed-up? I don't SEE IT!

Cons

Waste of time, these programs that clean your computer DON'T speed up your computer, you might as just go to msconfig.exe and disable some unwanted Start-Up and System Programs, change some Performances of desktop, change your Windows Skin and BAM! Even though I got the full version, I found SO MUCH registry entries and folders that were left behind from data...

CCleaner is the same thing but I'd rather use this than this Uniblue junk! It actually deletes, even though it doesn't speed up the computer...

"Don't waste your time and your money."

May 22, 2008  |  By Omega Weapon

 |  Version: SpeedUpMyPC 3

Pros

Almost nothing. Love the interface only.

Cons

I have been using these optimization utilities for a very long time and I can guarantee you that SpeedUpMyPC is by far one of the worst optimizers in the market.

Instead of speeding up my pc, this program slowed down everything (especially the welcome screen and my internet).

It's junk remover is horrible, It only removes the Thumb files from your folders (especially folders that contain pictures).

Simply, don't waste your time downloading and your money purchasing this program.

"Horrible"

February 20, 2008  |  By rogerpaul12

 |  Version: SpeedUpMyPC 3

Cons

Don t install this piece of ****. I tried it out---the paid version--and it really cranked up my computer. For example, some software will not work now and others have the Windows needs to configure this installation screen popping up! Wish I had checked the user reviews here before I installed it!
