    "CPU HOG! Do not waste your time with this software!"

    September 15, 2012  |   By fauxrillz

    Version: SystemSuite Professional 10.0

    Pros

    None whatsoever.

    Cons

    It eats up basically all of the CPU right at startup. It also doesn't seem to even work the way it claims to for the "services" it provides.

    Summary

    I had to remove this crap software while repairing a laptop and replaced it with Microsoft Security Essentials. The laptop struggled so hard to run this and wouldn't run any other applications until it was shutdown. I have informed the laptop owner not to reinstall this software and to use Security Essentials instead. I feel bad that people pay money for this.

    "Doesn't take EXPERIENCED user to know a dud!"

    September 9, 2012  |   By janiewatkins

    Version: SystemSuite Professional 10.0

    Pros

    Nothing good to report on the SS10.

    Cons

    I have used SystemSuite for 6 years and loved it... up until this year. It has problems and glitches for which Avanquest has sent me instructions for uninstalling, then reinstalling the corrected version. It is a waste of time. My PC is slower, crashes more often, and none of the 3 clean-up categories will get back to 100% (85% is best), and yet it reports my system is "fully optimized". NOT!

    Summary

    I will never use this program again and seriously regret not having read these reviews before I bought the new version. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!! I just bought a new laptop and would not even consider using up my 9 months remaining on license.

    "Does nothing that it claims to do"

    August 29, 2011  |   By genedale

    Version: SystemSuite Professional 10.0

    Pros

    None that I've seen so far

    Cons

    After a dozen tries, still have not defragged 2 out of 3 of my hard drives.
    After a dozen tries, still has not performed a successful Temporary File cleaning.
    SS10 is a CPU hog. Computer becomes non-functional after an hour, requiring a restart.

    Summary

    After a week of corresponding with techs at Avenquest, I'm no closer to getting this software to work. I just hope the uninstall doesn't turn into the nightmare others have warned me about.

    For a piece of software that is supposed to improve computer performance, System Suite 10 does just the opposite. If I wanted my computer to run slower, this would be the perfect software.

    "You don't own the software and utilities, it's a lease."

    March 29, 2011  |   By jerwgar

    Version: SystemSuite Professional 10.0

    Pros

    No more then others

    Cons

    Nothing special, othere programs seem to go deeper

    Summary

    From there advertising they make it seem you are buying a software program that you will own like any other software. No where do they say if you don't buy the subscription after a year, your serial number will no longer work and won't be able to use all the system suite tools you thought you purchased. They don't put this information anywhere in there advertising so basically sell you a full software program for a year, without letting you know you only get to use the software for a year, you don't own it. I have had upgraded to a few different versions over the years and never had that happen. They said it is because it is a virus program, that is only a small part of what it does and isn't advertised as such. Also other programs don't let you get updates, like they used to do, if you don't subscribe, but still let you use the program, especially if it has computer tools. Shows on there website that there program (system suite 11) gets 5 stars on Tucows, but tucows only has version 8 rated.

    "I need them to backup their product"

    August 7, 2010  |   By creamjj

    Version: SystemSuite Professional 10.0

    Pros

    I like the early version.

    Cons

    For a system cause it would not allow me to remove it like I am being punishment

    Summary

    This is what we, as people with purchasing power need you to do for us: Train your staff at all ends of the company line to take ownership of our issues until they are completely resolved instead of forwarding to another department or person. You need to follow up and get us done. Please respond to all requesting help or information in a timely matter with excellent customer service skilled. Anytime just one customer cannot get an issue resolved. It is a warning that problem will post it everywhere. It would not be a good idea for the Better Business Bureau to get a ton of complaints. There will always be customers but there may not always be company.

    July 11, 2010  |   By Bike2010

    Version: SystemSuite Professional 10.0

    Pros

    Everything worked fine except the antivirus malware updater

    Cons

    Antivirus does not update as it should. They had their servers go down in June 2010 it has not been dependable since them

    Does not update the Anti Virus /Malware and indicates that it does.

    "Excellent program for the money."

    March 11, 2010  |   By front242

    Version: SystemSuite Professional 10.0

    Pros

    Simple to use for the average user. One click it and 90 percent of your problems will be fixed. I actually offer my clients a 40% discount on repairs if they have this installed because it makes my job so much easier.

    Cons

    If non experienced users begin to tinker with some of the tools available, it is too easy for them to get lost. Firewall does not give enough information on some applications for most end users to make an informed decision on whether to block or not.

    Summary

    For the cost, the tools provided have no peer. About 45 dollars for three licenses cannot be beat. Get educated about how to use the product before you install. That goes for any product, as this will help you get past 99% of the problems you might face. I have yet to run into any moderate to minor issue that this cannot fix and have used it to repair many major issues. Beware of techs with little hands on experience, who recommend against this product. If they have used it extensively and do not like it that is fine, but I see too many self described computer gurus who obviously know little but speak much about this product.

    "Do not buy........"

    February 8, 2010  |   By marto61

    Version: SystemSuite Professional 10.0

    Pros

    None. See cons.

    Cons

    Customer Support. The choice I made was based on the SS8 ver. SS9 was nothing but trouble at first and they admitted problems and to give it time for them to adjust. It consumed CPU usage and eradicated performance.

    Summary

    This program is connected with Vipre, Sunbelt.I bought in April 09. I have been trying to remove it for quite some time. After many searches and trying suggestions ,it's still on my computer. I contacted Avanquest,Sunbelt and got no response. I found 2 removers. 1 says you need a password and no one from Sunbelt responded to my inquire on obtaining the ps.The other won't download. Both are from Sunbelt. Avanquest still hasn't responded. If you go to SS10,.......caution, wait to see reviews. I want my money back.
