A useless resource hog, fortunately I'm cynical enough to always try a pirated reg key first before parting with good cash for a rip off like this. The pirated keys normally become invalid after a month or so but that's OK, it took me a few hours to ascertain that Uniblue is cr@p, just check the windows taskmanager after it's done it's "magic". Sad that so many useless products like this make money for their snake oil salesmen for so long. (read more)

I came here because I ran a download speed test on several sites, all showing 24.5 MB/s. I ran the uniblue test at http://testinternetspeed.org three times and it always reported ONE MB/s. That's 4% of the actual speed. It also had an offer to try a free trial of their amazing speed-up software and run the test again. I figured that if I did, obviously the new test would then show my full 25 MB/s speed. Rather than download malware that does god knows what, I came here to check the... (read more)

Good points: did not make computer unusable Bad points: had to register to fix more errors Well, I downloaded the Uniblue family one day, and this was a probably good solution. It removed various errors successfully, and it was the free version. However, I would not suggest this to family or friends because important files may be deleted, based on previous reviews.

I purchased this program under the premise stated that it will speed up my computer. I got my first ever blue screen ever since installing this junk and now I am locked out of some of my programs I use every day. DON'T BUY IT. It will waste your time and money. The programmers need to go back to school if they are serious about writing real programs. Shame on you Uniblue. (read more)

Had this for two months and seemed to be working OK apart from PC suddenly switching off in the middle of working on things. Yesterday morning it would not allow me in as a user whatever I did. Luckily I had also set my wife up as a user so was able to get in to the system . Did not feel competent at sorting the problem out so took it to the local computer shop.They sorted out the problem, but it cost me another £30 for the privilege. Also I have lost a lot of the information going back to... (read more)

I bought this to make my pc faster. After loading and using it my computer froze. I tried to access their so-called support. What a joke. Sent four e-mails--keep getting the same auto response they would get back--five days now--still waiting. I requested the guaranteed refund--no response. I tried the chat support--another joke. I am now deceived for my purchase. Hope this helps some else. Brian (read more)

This software will virtually destroy your pc. After installation and purchase of the software I spent over 2 weeks trying to repair the damage caused which included complete destruction of my LAN settings, desktop settings, multiple dll errors, crashes, blue screens, loss of boot information, etc. I am now trying to recover my payment and due to the damage this software caused I am forced to use a different computer just to contact the manufacturer. So, if your thinking of trying anything... (read more)

I bought SpeedUpMyPc in a local store - Curry's/PC World here in Dublin, Ireland. It presents itself quite clearly when installed and goes through the motions of examining the computer but then in order to REALLY clean up the computer you have to buy a further product that is not indicated on the box when you buy it.
Uniblue needs to become more transparent in it's packaging if it really wants to stay in business.
Not good fellas, not good.
How limited it is for the price paid. (read more)

I paid my money, got the licence key, ran the scan, clicked the fix button. That was the end of my PC. After that, disk errors on startup, missing DLLs, no network connections. Managed to copy personal files off to external disk but Windows is busted and will need rebuilding.

hi there i too was foolish enough to buy this programme without cecking out the reviews. although its done no damage i feel the programme is set up to decieve you in to thinking there is something wrong with yout pc just to get you to register and pay the £30 or whatever it is now.
since my purchace i have become a little more pc savvy and it is easy enough to perform all the tasks yourself so in conclusion THIS IS A WASTE OF MONEY!!!!

Downloaded SpeedUpMyPC to "check" for issues affecting my PC speed--hyped on site called testmy.net (internet speed tester).
Gee, I had nearly 9000 issues detected by the download, and for free, it would "fix" three of them. Who knows what those 9000 were or what the three were that were "fixed." Ah, but for a discounted price (offer expires in two days), I can activate the full program and "fix" the remaining unknown issues.

I do 95% of my typing -- including this review -- by voice, using Dragon NaturallySpeaking.

It ran once perfectly - but after that became increasingly erratic, and either slowed to a crawl or froze altogether.
