SpeedMaxPc is a downloadable software system that claims to give users “High Tech PC Optimization” by scanning their computer, identifying the “bugs,” cleaning their system, and then protecting them from future problems.
SpeedMaxPc is free to download and, once downloaded, will conduct a free scan of your computer, both hard drive and registry, to see where there are areas that could be addressed to have your computer run more efficiently.
In addition, SpeedMaxPc will scan your computer for spyware and malware and show you the specific issues that can be treated with their software.
However, these problems and areas of inefficiency will not be fixed by SpeedMaxPc unless you decide to purchase the software at a price of $29.99. Once you have purchased the software, SpeedMaxPc will begin fixing the issues so your computer can more efficiently.
And once your current problems are corrected, SpeedMaxPc also offers continual protection against spyware and malware so that future viruses cannot affect your computer’s performance.
Minding my own business downloading Firefox, window with MICROSOFT logo pops up, saying I can speed up my laptop with 3 steps only...THREE EASY FRIGGIN' STEPS! No mention of $29/= payment that they'll ask as soon and AFTER they have ACCESSED UR PC, and God knows what kind of virus they've installed while doing this.
They scanned my pc, and then says FIX IT ALL (as instructed when pop up came on with fake invite), and so, I clicked fix it all, believing it's MICROSOFT trying to run its software better...and then, BOOM! it asked for my credit card number.
Such friggin con-artists belong in jail. Why can't they say it cost money/purchase BEFORE they enter my most private techno in my life???
We gotta do something about these freaks.
On 4-29, I ordered Speed Max PC, had it before--computer crashed
Got it fixed, but Speed Max PC was lost. I paid for it, by 5-1, I realized it wasn't gonna work--no key code either, but my bank showed a charge
for it. So, I tried again--it works fine. Can't find any other way to contact
Speed Max PC.
Please refund my first payment.
Regret that I made an impulsive purchase. For $29, all one gets is a sales pitch to buy unnecessary and hideously expensive services.
Someone should shut them down.
Product doesn't work worth a crap. Uninstalled the program shortly after install....computer never worked properly after that. A year later they helped themselves to another years subscription. After months of dead ends and no responses I made a complaint to the better business bureau. Much to my surprise they offered a refund within 3 days. Still waiting.... Scam program and scam company.
I had a ton of toolbars installed on my browser and a bunch
Of unnessarry programs on my pc.
The software cleaned up my browser files and history
And removed all the programs I don't use.
Plus cleaned and removed all the torrent stuff my computer
From when my 17 yr old was using.
I can say without a doubt speedmaxpc worked well
I purchased this program because I kept getting the "blue screen of death". I installed speed max and dont know if it really fixed my problem but I never got the "blue screen of death" again so it could have. As far as for speed, this program didnt help it AT ALL. My computer is still slow and gets on my nerves so I wouldnt purchase this again....although one year later, safe card charged me 29.97 for it. Apparently its automatic but I called safe cart and they reimbursed me and cancelled my automatic payment and membership..or whatever it is.
Like so many other postings, I wish I would have done my research first. This is a scam!!!! I tried the free software on an older PC. Paid the money and registered the product. Tried to have it fix my computer and ended up with a blue screen. The technician on the phone who insisted on having access to my computer to register the product ends up telling me I need more software and needed to take computer in to have fixed- it was slow before, not useless. He nnever did fix or reset it. I restored my registry and was up and running 6 minutes later. Total waste of money. Would recommend to my enemies- all others stay away!
Take it from me this is a complete rip off!!!! I wish i would have done my research first! This crap does not work, can't get any help or response to my emails, obviously this is a scam most likely from nigeria or some place that screws you over just to take your money. And, 1-year later they do it again by charging your credit card again without authorization!!!
I fell for it!!! I'm the idiot. It did nothing and all I really got was a sales pitch for $250.00 plus $19.95 a month to 'really' fix my errors. Hope to get my money back.
I can't believe I fell for this total scam.....I am old enough to know better and I was even sober at the time !
Having read the above reviews ( if only I had read them first ) I now need to stop this outfit getting any more of my dosh.
Just purchased the speedmax pro today as my computer was running slow. I read on a site how this one was top rated!!Well i paid the "one off discounted price of £31" then telephoned to get it activated. Was answered by some tech who took over control of my computer and pointed out the 1300 faults and errors, then went on with the hard sale saying that they could fix it for a mere £129..."a lot cheaper than buying a new computer he said". I thought the £31 fee was to fix my computer and speed it up but now its running even SLOWER!!!!!Now speed max is telling me an hour later that i have 83 problems and my privacy details are critical but the fix now won,t even work its frozen on my screen, can anyone help? I paid with paypal..have i any comebacks with the 31 days trial??
SpeedMax advertises that it fixes Ieframe.dll problems "in 2 Minutes".
I wouldn't mind 5 Minutes, but in reality it does NOT fix anything.
I did ask Paypal to reimburse me!
I just hat such ripoff business,
After purchasing this product I tried using it. A statement comes up saying, "Service Not Available". This company is a total rip off and I am going to sue.
Folks, once for all, let it be known that any software that claims to speed up your PC by cleaning your registry is a scam. There are two reasons for a PC slowing down: memory fragmentation and disk fragmentation. To fix the first, just reboot. To fix the second run defrag or any defragmentation software. Other errors are likely due to overheating (dust-clogged fans are the usual culprits).
If you really want to clean up your PC, just run CCleaner (the first C stands for "Crap"). Get it here: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner It's free.
I am very dependent on printing from a DOS-application on a USB-connected printer (there's no LPT connection anymore).
The very easy way to succeed insofar is to let the DOS-program think, it is part of a network and define the printer as network printer, using the "net use lpt1" command + the printer's networkadress. This worked fine on my old Lenovo notebook, but it didn't on the new one.
It was obviously a networkrelated problem, as I got error messages like "Fehler 1058:Der angegebene Dienst kann nicht gestartet werden" when I used "net name" or "Systemfehler 66 Der Typ der Netzwerkressource ist falsch" when I use the "net use" command.
After some unsuccessful approach to my problem of my own, I googled both error messages. For the two querys I had the www.speedmaxpc.com site as first hit, advertising it's software as solution for the respective error message problem (and above all in some very, very bad, or rather crude german). Thus I really didn't (couldn't) imagine, that this soft was even serious, let alone able to solve my problem (I even deemed it to be some virus or other dangerous soft).
But it wasn't dangerous at all, it is a serious software and it even miraculously solved my problem. I now can use the USB-printer as network-printer as before.
So I say, this program was really worth the 20 Euros or so.
I find it hard to believe that this product can still be on the market. I don't even recall what I was looking for on Microsoft's website and it appeared in the banner as a "preferred vender." "Microsoft Certified" This is the first time that someone claiming to have MS stamp of approval, but it is the worst virus that I have had on any system. I am going to have to contact my Virus Protection to have the damage done repaired. DO NOT EVEN LOOK AT OR OPEN THE TROJAN. You are hung after that. There is no help! Ban them.
I have a relatively new PC that has an anti-virus software on it. My young daughter was on it and must have clicked on something b/c after that I kept getting script errors. This seemed like it would work so I paid the $30. I spoke to a tech who couldn't figure it out so he then said I needed to an advance tech for a small charge - at that point I said I didn't have time and would call back. Anyway, just for the heck of it since I already pd for it I ran it and it showed I had ~500 that needed fixing. I did the fix, rebooted as instructed, and then decided to re-run to see what it showed (at this point I had only rebooted and hadn't run anything. Now I had ~600 that needed attention. Needless to say, it didn't "fix" anything, that number just changed randomly. And the cookies, etc. it did clean out I could have done on my own - these weren't causing any errors. Just a waste of money.
SpeedMacPc was unhelpful for me and did not fix any of my computer issues. I initially wanted to get rid of babylon, still there. When I read the issues speedmax pc could resolve i was sold. The pop-ups still appear and I also have problems accessing Firefox. My computer is now running slower than before and AVG virus alerts are now prolific. Sorry to say would not recomend this product.
I was having issues with my computer. Found out about this from a friend. It fixed my issues.
a wast of money if you ask me it hasnt done anything to speed up my comp.wont ever get it again.
