    "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 1, 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 2, 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!
