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.
