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.
BE WARE!!!!! My computer was a touch slow before speedmaxpc after running this virus of a software on my pc everything is malfunctioning. The reason I'm writing this is to spare you all the problems I had to face
These people are a bunch of aholes.............I did not purchase this piece nor would i ever !! But after i downloaded this garbage everytime i think i removed it.......it pops up once again.......they can take their software and shove it i will never pay a cent for this CRAP !! Period.
I was suspicious at first - the free scan showed a couple of hundred problems so when I payed the $29 it sorted them in a couple of seconds.................oops!?
But letting it run overnight it went through the complete cycle and I checked on how many "junk files" I had accumulated before the test and post test they were gone, so it is not a scam.
i have paid $39.00 dollars approx i hour ago..and could not enter the software licence number on thiir screen. i now have the opinion that this is a total scam.i cannot contact their website to cancel my credit card payment which has been paid to speedmaxpc and confirmed by speedmaxpc.
I bought SpeedmaxPC's program (handled by Advanced ) in June.
they charged me $100 to do a "one time exam and cleanup"
everything seemed to be in order.
Then the program started doing periodic updates. OK
Today the program did an update. I was doing emails when it
asked me if I wanted to restart my computer. I finished an email, sent it, closed my programs and then did the restart. I then tried to go back into my emails and got an error message that the computer could no longer find my temporary files.
I told the guy at Advanced that it appeared the SpeedmaxPC program had deleted my temp files, and I would like them to fix that. He told me that would cost me more money. I explained to him that it was their software that was causing the problem and that I should not have to pay since this was their problem software causing the problem.
He told me that I would have to pay them again to fix the problem.
I told him that on the face of it, it was almost like extortion.
He hung up.
Just thought you would like to know.
Had a problem with my internet connection, every so often it would look for a wired connection - which I didn't have. Looked it up on the web and saw speedmaxpc for $29. Just to get this problem behind me, I went to sign up. It turned out that the only choice I found was for pro help for $39, so I did it. This clown gets on the line, signs onto my computer, points out some problems and says that in order to fix it I will need their specialist – this would cost $180. Told him he was nuts and hung up.
I will dispute this charge on my credit card on the basis it was a fraud and a scam.
It took mea few hours to get rid of their program and fix the problem using CCLEAN. It worked well and was free.
Ran their 'free' scan then had difficulty closing the site page [had to restart the computer] when 'free' became $29.99.
Went to run a full scan using kapersky PURE and find SpeedMax has done a scan [1500 plus errors] before Kapersky has completed.
Will have to restart this computer to clear their page again.
Next I'll be looking for a tutorial on how to uninstall SpeedMax even though the only download I did was their free scan
Ran for over 24 hours and just kept going and going. Never did get it to repair a single thing. What a waste of time.
I'm 17 and I'm enlisted in the USMC. Some guy conned me into buying this shit and I did... he requested my Visa Debit number and I stupidly gave it to him. HELP!
I downloaded a program for $29.97 called SpeedMax PC. It didn't help anything but managed to lose two of my folders in Windows Live Mail. They also said they would refund purchase price if not pleased within first 30 days. I was not pleased the 2nd DAY and have e mailed them 3 times requesting a refund. They sent me one e mail and said to try Restore to an earlier time. I tried it. It didn't help. Now they won't even answer my e mail and have not responded to my request for a refund. I have filed a grievance with PayPal where I paid for it. It's a lot of hassle for a really bad experience. My advice....DON'T DO IT! IT'S NOT WORTH LOSING MONEY OVER AN EMPTY PROMISE OF PERFORMANCE ENHANCMENT.
JUNK. Read all the other post as I don't need to repeat. JUNK
So upsetting that it's just a come-on for more work. the woman told me "your computer needs $200 dollars worth of work. do you have a staples in your town? me: yes. her: ok....well we can do it for $120 and you never have to leave your home"
when i called for the refund they transferred my call 3 times and finally i hung up after 20 minutes on hold. this website gave me the number to call:
""Safecart Payments" with the following number: 1-855-432-0727.
total godsend. got my refund in 2 minutes.
Thanks for the help all. AJ
After trying and giving this software a fair chance I was very disappointed to say the least. Many of the issues it found were in fact not any type of malware at all, the sad thing is that it is possible for most users to do the same thing and even better with free software. YES I SAID FREE....... In fairness I suppose there are people that are totally unable to do any kind maintenance on their computer so maybe this can work for them, although I would suggest they get a friend that is a geek to set them up with a routine maintenance folder with the freeware that when used will keep their computer running like new.
They do not do what you pay them to do. According to some computer experts they hacked into my computer.
thanks for all the negative and positive reviews.I was having probs with my PC and did an online search to fix the prob.
I downloaded and scanned my PC with Speedmaxpc, and was prompting me to register...hummm... luckly that i read the reviews first before giving them my credit card details...
After reading these reviews, it made me think twice and will go ahead with the registraion purchase....
I will keep looking for other providers...
it did exactly what I wanted it to do, i downloaded the software in 3 steps, once it scanned i clicked the fix button and the error i was getting is now gone.
sorry my english is not good so. I can say the speedmaxpc worked for my problem.
SpeedMaxPC killed my computer. Now all get is a blank screen and that's after several tries turning it on an off. I even tried with a separate monitor, and no help.
I think I've been scammed and I'm calling my credit company right now to see if I can stop payment.
Thought it was quite good no complaints so far a bit costly but what can you get for £20 these days
When I first ran SpeedMaxpc, I was dissappointed when my computer was still running very slow. What I did find is that after I ran the program about five times in a row, rebooted and now my computer is running much faster. I am very pleased with this program. I also contacted them regarding a program that I cannot uninstall. They responded quickly with an answer and a program to use. I received excellent support!
You don't have to go through all the bitching an complaining about Speed MAxPC,.
I too fell for the scam,
True it doesn't do a damn thing an may have slowed my computer down, but like David J has said ,Call ""Safecart Payments" with the following number: 1-855-432-0727.
I just did & (Andy) took care of the refund within minutes, an tonight PayPal Shows I received my $39.95 Refund,.
Now I too will remove the pesky, non-functioning, menace to my computer.
