SpeedUpMyPC Scan 2

The software has a user-friendly interface, very intuitive and self-explanatory, that even a novice user can operate such program without any hassle at all. Though at first look it seems like difficult to use, but after reading all the tabs and the processes it does, it becomes very easy to understand and utilize. SppedUpMyPC allows the user to monitor the computer resources effortlessly and optimize them as necessary. The software also offers free updates of the system to provide more protections against latest problems.

Despite all the features given by the software, SpeedUpMyPC appears to be a “blind” application. The processes and the procedures that the software does are not really clear to the users. After the software performs a scan, it provides the users options on what to do but blindfolded on what happened during the process. The software does detect numbers of problems and potential threats but it does not include more details about the locations and the reason of the threat found. Also whenever the software is launched, it performs a scan automatically and there is no stop/cancel button, thus you have to wait for the scan to be finished. However, SpeedUpMyPC does a nice job on enhancing the performance of the computer system and internet connection.

Uniblue offers a free trial version for the consumers to try and download through the internet, but of course with various limitations on functions and performance. The demo version only enables one active rule of the software, and performs the first two tweaks applied in the computer, the first junk files detected are the only one deleted and removed. Users of the demo version usually give low ratings and not so good comment. Though the demo version is a great use and may give little enhancement on your computer, purchasing the full version of SpeedUpMyPC, costing $29.95, is more recommended to utilize the software well and detect more problems and of course resolve it. Purchasing the full version, however, gives the software commendable comments and ratings from the consumers. The following are the ratings made:

The software provides consumers significant features that are very useful in speeding up the computer system. Managing the CPU processes and space is one of its nice remarkable features, CPU handles all the system and managing it does enhance the computer’s performance. As well as having the Uninstall Manager and Privacy system in the internet are also features of the program that others don’t have. But still, the software does not offer a scheduler that would be nicer to have to allow the user operate the software with convenience. However, with its optimizing wizard, the user is given opportunities to select what programs to disable as windows loads.

The company had also provided product manuals for the users that can also be downloaded. Though the company offered their email address to contact them for general inquiries and suggestions, a Customer or Technical Support that can be contacted through phone would be much better especially for those who are not really tech savvy and more likely to talk the problem through phone.

Safety and Security – 3.5 out of 5.0

Though the software is very easy to install and use, it still has security problems. As mentioned above, its does detects numerous errors and problems but unable to give details and information about the errors and problems detected making the user blind of what were deleted or taken from the computer.

SpeedUpMyPC Scan 3

In conclusion, SpeedUpMyPC does its functions well as what it is created for and affects the system in a positive way. Using the software would really enhance the speed of the computer’s system and also the internet connection and startup time.

EDIT: We no longer recommend SpeedUpMyPC as it just doesn’t really stand up to the other registry cleaners & pc optimizers such as SpeedyPC Pro.
