Ascentive PC SpeedScan Pro


We did have a short review of PC SpeedScan here and many user comments and reviews. Very colorful and negative user comments about the software I should add.  Unfortunately, we were forced to remove the review and the comments for a variety of reasons. 

Apparently, Ascentive did not like the comments and we received a few nasty-grams from their lawyers.   The FTC is releasing new rules about user comments and reviews that make us liable for your comments.  Go figure.  A lot of legal jargon but it seems that freedom of speech on the Internet is slowly coming to an end. 


After hearing too many complaints about the Ascentive SpeedScan Pro software, you may want to stick with computer optimization programs that have stood the test of time. Here are some good reviews on SpeedUpMyPC and the Uniblue Powersuite - definitely worth a look!
