I bought this product to update a earlier version that was about to expire, whilst it installed ok on the first PC using the code provided on the box (though as a earlier reviewer said it has disabled the auto run on my digital camera and CD's and DVD's, and possible other things not yet discovered).
In the mean time I tried to install it onto my 2 laptops but without success as it will not accept the code on the box a second time, I received a Email from PCtools which had a new licence number but this too fails to be accepted and I am automatically routed to a purchase page where I can purchase a copy of the software....infuriating.
I tried the online chat help but after only a few questions I was instructed to call a technical hotline......more infuriating.
I then raised a ticket for technical support but I am still waiting for them to get back to me.
I am really fed up at this point and will be looking to uninstall this program and try to restore my computer to a time before this fiasco.
This product is cheap here on Amazon and I am not surprised because it really is a nightmare to work with, unless of course you only need it on one computer and you want to disable your autorun functions.
Avoid at all costs, I wish I could give it NO STARS.

Purchased 24/10/13: Installed 04/11/13. ADVISED BY OWNERS [SYMANTEC] ON 05/11/13 that that no longer will support this product after 04/12/15.
After massive search, reference to other users I decided to purchase 12 months PC TOOLS for my PC, laptop and a spare laptop.
What a good price £27. What good recommendation - my opticians use this great PC Tool. And its SYMANTEC.
Imagine my alarm when today - I received an e-mail from Symantec telling that they will no longer support this system after 04/12/15.
I am confused as to "WHY" they have dumped this tried and tested bit of software - it actually does work VERY WELL.
The only positive thing to come out of this is that Symantec will convert my annual subsciption to a perpetual one after 04/12/13.
I will have had my 12 month subscription only ONE MONTH when they convert me to "Perpetual" and then withdraw all support on 04/12/15.
I think that I certainly got good value for money when I purchased this item. I did expect that it would go on for ever - with annual renewals at £27 or thereabouts. But then, If it's as good as it's supposed to be WHY ARE SYMANTEC DUMPING IT? Alarm bells are ringing and I am already looking for a replacement PC TOOLS....
It ios not very good for the confidence factor of a product when the owners decide to DUMP IT.
RECOMMENDATION IS NOT TO BUY IT. KEEP LOOKING FOR A LONG TERM SOLUTION.

I purchased this sofware to help with the slow running of my new lap-top, It's put all the hard work into one easy onscreem set-up, it keeps the machine incheck & tells you what you need if anything.
It's so easy to use "just click one button" it does the rest.
I brought the 3pc package for my lap-top,pc and my daughts lap-top.
She was having alot of trouble but one click and sorted!!

An Amazon purchase. Cost £24.43 ... next day delivery and free postage.
My experience of PC Tools Registry Mechanic goes way back to the release of Windows 7 OS. I have swapped then from Symantec / Norton Utilities largely because their software became so bloated by then ... and even the Utilities package that was "allegedly made to suit Windows 7 OS" .... was perfectly useless. Hence when I found, that Symantec has bought the PC Tools, I knew that this meant the end of the road for Registry Mechanic. Pity, it was such a nice, compact and effective package.

That said ... the above Performance Toolkit is meant to be fully compatible with Windows 8.0 OS [it says so on the box and on the disk inside], but as I have upgraded all three of my Asus i7 and i5 laptops to Windows 8.1 OS, I took a bit of risk in buying this package. I have used the lowest specified machine, the Asus K56CA [i5, 6GB DDR3, 1TB HDD] as the Guinea Pig ...... and prayed loudly during the Toolkit registry cleaning operation. The installation took less than 2 minutes and the full scan and clean up took further 4 minutes [not a bad time for virtually all Adobe, Autodesk and Microsoft software packages]. The Toolkit found 330 errors, cleaned them successfully [the cleaning operation is set to manual = sort of a chicken switch]. I have rebooted the computer, waking out of the room to get a cup of double espresso, half ready for the clean Windows OS re-installation .... but, all was well. All software worked, all shortcuts worked, everything stayed in right place etc. I have not noticed any speed increase [hence only a 4 star rating] but I have not noticed any adverse effects either, which is good. I should mention that after installing Windows 8.
