Is Pro Advanced Systems care worth it?

  JanetO 09:17 16 Dec 2008

I updated the prior Advanced Windows Care to the present Advanced Systems Care. There's not as frequent updates as the older version, but it seems good. Now after a scan and repair it has boldly told me if I go for the paid upgrade it can:

Increase pc speed by 226%

increase pc reliability by 51%

increase internet speed by 349%

That's quite a boast. Does anyone know if this can really be achieved?

Just read their web site and it appears that all it does it what any body can do with proper security measures and regular housekeeping and cleaning!

no its stupid sales pitch that lets the company down and will put people of its software which generally is not bad.

This has been raised on their forum:

for which they have no real answer.

Just stick with the free version.
As sunnystaines says - it's a sales pitch and does them no credit whatsoever.
