Too unreliable to be any use
on 19 February 2011
While this software boasts a complete range of security and clean-up features, it just isn't up to the job of protecting your computer. From my experience of this product, too much effort has been put into the product design, and not anywhere near enough into the functionality.
One of the more obvious experiences I had of this was the option of three different types of home page. But this was no use to me because the software kept on crashing my computer. Furthermore, even if it didn't keep freezing up, why would anyone need three home pages?!
On the up side, it does have regular product updates, which are set to occur every hour by default. Idle scanning will also start when you aren't using your computer, but then this is a very common feature of most internet security packages. With regards to the tune-up utilities, I was quite pleased to see that they weren't just links to windows products, like defragmenter etc. I also found the blue and red box was quite eye catching. You can probably tell by now I'm struggling to come up with more things I like about it...
So what do I hate about this product? For a start, the product was painfully slow to install, taking over an hour to complete - although it did run a system scan during that time. Any other product I've used has completed in under 10 minutes! I've already mentioned the constant crashing, and the only way to rectify the situation is to unplug the computer and try again - just hope you don't have any important unsaved documents at the time it happens.
Even though I'd pretty much made up my mind by this point that I wasn't going to use this product any further, I decided to give it another chance to redeem itself though finding some malware on my computer. So I started a scan, went away, and when I returned in half an hour, I was stunned to find it saying...43 hours remaining. Surely that must be the longest virus scan ever?! While it did eventually report that there was only 9 hours remaining, there was no way I was going to leave my computer on that long just for a virus scan. So you probably know what I did...yes, after uninstalling, my computer was back to its normal habits.
I guess therefore, that this product could be summed up in one word...avoid.
