AVG PC TuneUp - 3 PCs

1 out of 5 eggs Killed my PC: slow to a crawl. REBUILD time 01/08/2013

This review is from: AVG PC TuneUp - 3 PCs

Pros: Did fix some registry problems and identified a few programs running that I did not need (apple itunes stuff).

The free downloaded version worked well. So I thought I would buy this paid version to see if it would work better. Not the case. Did not want to believe the low ratings. My mistake.

Cons: Followed all the optimization suggestions and defragged the HD. Here are the RESULTS:

Start-up now 10X slower. Booting Mozilla 4X slower. Killed my USB transfer rate which now takes twice as long using the same USB flash drive I have been using. Internet connection is worthless.

Switched to the TURBO mode since I was willing to sacrifice visual effects but I saw no improvement.

Customer service through the chat is worthless. I am always in "Position #1, but then wait forever. Finally I gave up. There is no e-mail to write to tech support. There is a phone number but I have not time to be put on hold forever.

Other Thoughts: Uninstalled and looks like I am going to have to REBUILD my PC again. About ready to go to MAC soon.
