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.

How to do without SpeedMaxPC and other scam software artists
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.
Like a miracle
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 wouldn't call it a review... it is designed to "force" you to use this .......
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.
Don't Waste UR $$
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 $30. I spoke to a tech who couldn't figure it out so he then said I needed to an advance tech for a small charge - at that point I said I didn't have time and would call back. Anyway, just for the heck of it since I already pd for it I ran it and it showed I had ~500 that needed fixing. I did the fix, rebooted as instructed, and then decided to re-run to see what it showed (at this point I had only rebooted and hadn't run anything. Now I had ~600 that needed attention. Needless to say, it didn't "fix" anything, that number just changed randomly. And the cookies, etc. it did clean out I could have done on my own - these weren't causing any errors. Just a waste of money.
SpeedMac not working for me -
SpeedMacPc was unhelpful for me and did not fix any of my computer issues. I initially wanted to get rid of babylon, still there. When I read the issues speedmax pc could resolve i was sold. The pop-ups still appear and I also have problems accessing Firefox. My computer is now running slower than before and AVG virus alerts are now prolific. Sorry to say would not recomend this product.
Worked for me...
I was having issues with my computer. Found out about this from a friend. It fixed my issues.
a wast of money if you ask me it hasnt done anything to speed up my comp.wont ever get it again.
received incorrect licence oade, can't activate or repair anything firstname.lastname@example.org
I can't stop laughing at all you complainers! You guys obviously all have garbage pc's and laptops! I purchased this product by mistake and it does exactly what it's meant to do, nothing more and nothing less!
These comments are hilarious!
Did you expect it to make your crap pc/laptop amazing or something? The prog. Simply cleans ups ur registry, not much more, what the hell did you all expect for 20$ hahaha!
You want something that will do a full 100% all the way around job? Buy kaspersky pure and stop complaining!
Scum company. I just did a search to get rid of repeated script errors and the software came up saying to get rid of in 3 easy steps so I downloaded and it scanned and found errors then had to register and not until then do the say it costs money. Just like the malware hackers.
Put this on my computer and it deleted necessary things and left the
virus that I had on it in the first place. Disputed payment through
Paypal and because it was a virtual purchase, they could not help me.
Because it took longer than 30 days, when I finally contacted Speedmaxpc, they refused to refund my money. This is how they make their money.
I traded one for another.
It seems to delete your cookies,from unwanted adds you receive when visiting sites like Walmart, and tiger direct which I can do myself. It deletes old passwords when you visits sites, but I continue to get a debugging message, and my computer just crashes. I have a Alienware that is about 6 months old, and McAfee antivirus. As far as speed I can see no difference.
It seemed to fix internet explorer for me and get rid of the damnd error message that kept popping up.
I Tried, I Liked, I Bought!
This software saved my pc from an overwhelming mess of toolbars my Kid installed over the last two weeks, he was borrowing my laptop.
Their we're so many Tool-bars installed on internet explorer I couldn't even see the webpages I visited.
They had also stored a ton of cookies and data/info about my sons & me's browsing habits. "It was enough to make you sick."
SpeedMaxPc also solved the "Internet Explorer Not Responding" error I was getting from time.
So from my experience, SpeedMaxPc really helped BIG TIME!
Installed it yesterday. Got caught with the auto re-new section. The prgram has screwed up my computer totaly. Cannot access Windows Mail at all. Tried correct-backwards to their starting point and that does not work. As I work from home my time is now shot good and proper.
DO NOT touch this program unless you want to go sleepless for the following few weeks
True, Speedi Max offer to fix your computer the amount of 29.95 for a 12 month period. But then continues to deduct the amount from your account every couple of months. They make it easy to put on your computer, but almost impossible to take off. I have been trying to contact this company to stop their service, but have been blocked with every page I get on.
I first down loaded some tool bar which caused my computer to
get infected by SpeedMaxPc. which is suppose to repair my cp
My cp has not been the same it creates its own diseases and
virsus and loads them in the computer. I have used other cleaners but this is the worst thing I ever got a hold of. A advertisement came on
my screen advertising it as follows $39.95 now 9.95 so I fell for it.
But paypal charged me the full price. Lie number 1. Lie number 2.
It only pretends to work. Don't fall for the LIe of sales. Then when you call for a refund. The company say's there only the collections for the company. The gave me a link to a website. which never answers back.
A totally useless software rip-off
I purchased this early in 2012. After "cleaning" my PC I had to do a complete System Restore as it ripped the guts out of my Non Custom Microsoft software applications.
A few months I thought I would try SpeedMaxPC again just to see if my PC had accumulated many problems.
It said I had an astounding 1,833 problems that "NEED URGENT ATTENTION". Funny thing was that my PC was working quite well.
I decided to edit what "problems" I wanted SpeedMaxPC to "fix" but was advised my 12 Month subscription had expired.
I found that to be very odd as it was still 2012. After contacting SpeedMaxPC via their convoluted methodology I was advised that I didn't need to renew my subscription but on another page my Licence Key had expired.
I have now uninstalled this piece of crap form my PC and am so incensed that I want to warn anybody else who is seduced by this BROAD SWORD Software cleaner.
DON'T GO NEAR THIS PRODUCT...For any reason !
Why is there not a zero star...
If this had zero star, I would rate it zero. IT SUCKS!!!!!!!! And it also doesn't work. Also, dust on the inside slows it down considerably--consider going to staples or officemax or some hardware store, costco also sells them every once in a while, but buy some compressed air cans. MAKE SURE YOU DO THIS OUTSIDE OR IT WILL MAKE A GIANT MESS. Go home, take off a side of the shell of your computer, and use the can to blow off dust, especially around the motherboard and other exposed wires (Like the graphics card if you have one). Or reinstall Windows.
@Mike O'Neill: You're stupid. SpeedmaxPC is a fricking software system, not a hardware system where people magically teleport to your computer and start fixing it. Oh, and it is impossible to have your computer as fast as brand new with stuff like browsers and Microsoft word and stuff like that, because in order to do so, the speed of the computer must be faster that when it was first made, which is physically impossible without a change of hardware or superconductivity.
RIP OFF SCAM
Downloaded and installed 'FREE' download - then scanned and made up all sorts of faults, then would not fix until I paid $30 or so, uninstalled it and PC wont boot up now. This is MALWARE dont use it, they should be prosecuted.
