No support and account not secure
By -

I would recommend caution in dealing with this company. I had/have no problem with the product but I do with the company and the security of accounts. I initially contacted them after the product subscription was renewed and it was apparent that I had not paid for it. I received a lot of emails from different customer support people who obviously could not read nor understand that I wanted to know how my subscription could be renewed if I hadn't done it. Never got an answer but I have received an email this morning saying they have cancelled my subscription and refunded my money although it's too early to say if I have actually got any money back.

That would be highly ironic as I didn't pay anything. I'm sure that if someone else finds their subscription cancelled and funds returned without knowing what has transpired they will be pretty confused. Overall I would rate this companies support as absolute crap and it would probably help if their support people could actually read and understand simple English. It's also ironic that a company with such a high profile for PC security has some very obvious internal problems with their accounts and subscription renewals.

NO support

I downloaded and paid for it. It interfered with a number of other programs. I contacted support. They asked me to download and run some diagnostic software and send them the resulting log, which I did 6 days ago. I haven't heard from them since. I called again today and the woman said she WAS escalating the problem to Level 3.

I spoke with a "supervisor" who turned out to be someone I had spoken with when I reported the problem and he said that he had ALREADY escalated it days ago. I asked why, if it was already escalated. 1. The woman had told me just minutes earlier that she had JUST escalated it, and 2. if it was no longer a problem within his domain why, when they escalated it they did not so notify me, given that they were the ones I had been communicating with.

His answers: She was "not allowed" to tell me it had already been escalated. 2. For three times he told me that I didn't get such an e-mail "BECAUSE" they escalated it! Finally he said that if they had sent me an e-mail that would have DE-escalated the problem!? I searched online for a number for Corporate, hoping to find an ombudsman there, but there are no numbers available except for level 1 support. RIP OFF!

No one to contact - no registration
By -

Purchased & downloaded online version about 10:00 pm 11-22-2009. Receipt with registration code appeared on screen about 15 seconds and then shut down and rebooted system. My problem is you can't have a direct contact without registration code. I now have 12 hours tied up trying to remove 5 threats and 120 alerts. When I click on resend code they state being sent to registration email. Never happens although funds have cleared my bank account. I never received confirmation email. NEED HELP AND CAN'T GET.

PC Tools Rip Off
By -

FRESNO, CALIFORNIA -- PC TOOLS has so far charged me 3 times to renew a license that I didn't want. There are free tools that do a better job. They refunded me once but still have charged me twice more. This is another scam that a lot of disreputable companies are using to rob you.

I paid for this
By -

I paid 39.95 For Spyware Doctor. Subscription is go tell 10/11 Now it has stopped working and it is telling me that my free trial is over. How can we stop them from ripping off others?

Spyware Doctor And PC Tools
By -

They overcharged me for the product. They guarantee a refund in the first 30 days. I have to wait at least 10 to get it. Spyware Doctor, I found, is junk. It bogs down my computer. I don't know how they get the good reviews, most of their software is mediocre at best. There are better software companies, and don't make the same mistake I did: Don't impulse buy. TRY it out for the trial period!!
