Ascentive / says you can cancel but keep part of the money

1 United States Review updated:

After seeing their "Finally Fast" TV add, I decided to try it. It said I could have a free scan, but the website is so confusing I ended up being charged for one product plus a $4.95 download charge plus a backup CD. I didn't even see a place to order a CD. I realized that to "fix" all of the problems they claim you actually have to buy several different softwares. One to speed up the registry etc, another to speed up the internet connection, another for safe surfing...I think there were 6 in all!

Stay away from this company!

    Ascentive - Fause Advertisement
    United States

    This advertisemtent regarding this fast running computer regarding Ascentive is not what it is cracked up to be. First they say it will only cost $29.00, however my credit card got charged almost $50.00. It is truely a rip off and they should be investigated with their false advertisement scam.

    Couldn't agree more. I wish I had visited this site and it would have saved me also.

    It could be possible that their programs are still installed. Try to go to Start > All Programs and see if Ascentive is there. If it is, then that is the reason their program is still coming up on your screen. You have to uninstall it. Ask them how.

    I tried Ascentive free scan but did not buy. I ran the uninstall but this did not remove the Ascentive program.
    I then used PREVX 3.0 which identified the Ascentive application as a root kit and PREVX sucessfully removed it.

    I have purchased the Ascentive programs. When the programs would not work, I cancelled my order and subscription to include the request for a refund. I have yet to receive this refund.

    Won't credit my refund of $129.00. But trying since Aug 13, 2014. They keep you on hold or pass you around. They always say they will sent management a email for refund. Still waiting and computer still has the same issues, Tried that day for them not to post to my card. With in 30 minutes it was pending on my card. Cancel credit card immediately. Put a complaint with my bank regarding my issue the same day of supposedly they did the service. If they clean my computer. Then why is my computer running even slower and more pop up then ever. I put a complaint with the better business bureau Aug 27, 2014. Also emailed days after first attempt. With no response as of Aug 28, 2014. Called and was passed around for over a hour. Until I called from another phone number. They told me that the email been sent again for the request for refund. But, also gave me fake names. I will write a complaint to [redacted].com. I posted on Ascentive"s Face book page of my issue. But the only post positive comments. Their contact information is a Philadelphia, Pa Address with a fax #. I have 3 different 800 numbers for this company. Beware of their services. I found this site on I did report this with Microsoft and the sent me other places I am able to report this company. They are looking into this also since it is also their web sites. Lesson learned beware of advertising software on computer. You are must better off having it fix by a reputable company where you drop off and pick up. Buy security program. I starting useing Trend Micro and is very pleased with it. I bought a year program for 3 computers. It stops everything. Will continue to use this every year. Isn't to expensive of a software. Don't use Ascentive they rip you off and makes your issues worst.

    Stay away from...
