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.

Please be aware of this so called cleaner. Wish I had never heard of it.
Downloaded it and phoned as requested and the lady I spoke with took over remotely and when through the machine and informed me of everything that was wrong with it. Told me it had to be a certified engineer that had to put it right, but if I paid them 370 dollars, they would do it for me. I did state that I thought that was expensive and I was not going to pay that amount and she immediately rang off.
I ran the software and when completed told me to restart the machine, which I did, only to find that I had more problems that I had before.
All my History had vanished, as had all the Favorites icon and a couple of empty folders, plus all my photograph (300+) and Document folders had also gone. All of this relating to research I have completed recently on my family tree, all gone and no trace anywhere.
I know enough about computers to know how not to delete items and folders, so it was either the lady or the software itself.
Please be aware
They charged me £30-92 then gave me a number to phone and activate my licence number, the phone number they gave me dosn't exist! this is the number they told me to ring ( 0800 ) 014-839 if anyone can get through to this number would you please let me know, thank you~

Has major flaws
I signed up to SpeedMax and found it marginally better than Win Zip Utilities. Two major flaws:
1. After running it, I could not get into Control Panel
2 At StartUp, a message kept coming up about ". .../apps/roaming/receme.dll
The module cannot be found"
I ran MSCONFIG and found the StartUp Menu full of files I'd never heard of. I unticked the lot and now my system's running well.
The software is of questionable value, it does little more than any free similar product, in fact I believe it does less. But, of far greater concern is their business ethics. To put it bluntly, I have found them to be less than honest. I purchased SpeedMaxPc for a trial and payed my money; however it failed to meet my expectations, I found it to be cumbersome, it interfered with my work and it required a complete re-boot every single time. So I removed it and thought no more about it. That is, until I reviewed my accounts and found that they had changed my one-of-fee to an annual fee and informed me later that if I didn’t want that then I had 30 days to stop it. Excuse me, I had not authorised an annual deduction in the first place, so be weary be very weary of dealing with this company. Bottom-line for me is, that I believe SpeedMaxPc to be a product to avoid unless you want an inferior product and are willing to pay for the privilege - annually.
SpeedMaxPc not fit for the purpose/Grossly misleading advertising
I was tempted to instal this product when my laptop kept coming up with errors.
Firstly by installing SpeedMaxPc's product the advertising material said my computer would be repaired for free,
However once their software was installed I was told that I had to pay £19 to activate it but that this was with a concession of £6 which only applied for that one day.
When it came to payment I was asked for £30.92 by SafeCart which included £5.15 in VAT. As SpeedMaxPc is based in the USA I fail to see how they can charge VAT when the USA is not part of the European Union.
SpeedMaxPc's software doesn't do what it claims to do and I have painstakingly removed every trace of it on my laptop which is now in a worse state than it was before.
I would advise fellow computer users to steer clear of this program and if they have installed to remove it and request a refund via SpeedMaxPc /Safecart . If you don't get any joy that way complain to the Better Business Bureau.
Despite numerous other complaints that I have read about SpeedMaxPc Google still carries their Website and Adverts and Microsoft apparently recommend it.
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.
Need a refund for one, 2nd order works fine
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
Hard to tell
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.
This is a scam
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!
DON'T BE STUPID & INSTALL THIS!!!!!
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!!!
Nothing but a snake oil fix.
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.
Wish i had seen this site before i bought it!!!!
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??
A Complete Ripoff!
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.
