Pareto PC / Software downloads worthless

1 Victoria, British Columbia, Canada Review updated:

They advertise scanning software to clean up files and speed up your computer - however my experience after purchasing and running their software was exactly the opposite. Many time computer stalls or shut down and everyday performance (Windows XP) was terrible until I had the machine inspected by a local geek who's first suggestion on seeing my icons was to "get rid of that". To add insult, Pareto ignore fax messages asking for help. I would never buy from them again and suggest you research more deeply than I did.

    I had the same exact experience. I even bought a subscription. Tanked my machine. I too, will research more thoroughly.

    In addition to not working well, Pareto software is very difficult to remove. I was not able to totally get rid of the software until I redid the system on a new hard drive and transferred only programs and data that I needed. There appeared to be a rootkit that I couldn't remove.
