After MyCleanID installed it would run and kept me from using my laptop. I just purchased this 2 days ago. I called them and told them I was finally able to delete this and now I can again use my laptop. I asked for a refund and they would not refund the $127+ that I paid. They hung up on me. This happened 6/4/2023. Product purchased 6/2/2023. They were very rude to me.Read full review of Iolo
The company has recently changed the terms and conditions of its software and now charges $19.95 EVERY month where previously you could opt out of the LIVE AGENT. DON'T BE FOOLED BY DEEP SOFTWARE DISCOUNTS - they all include the $240 per year price tag for this "service". Also, BEWARE OF FREE TRIALS as the LIVE AGENT service fees can start within a very...Read full review of Iolo
01/24//23. I am suddenly being bombarded with pop ups trying to sell me more things, or upgrading my service, I got an email telling me I was being automatically billed for "customer support" at the rate of $19.95 in 3 days. I never authorized this, and when I finally got through to someone, I was rather rudely told that all that was " on cover on the last...Read full review of Iolo
System mechanic ultimate defense
Hi there. I have tried and tried to cancel my card payment method with Iolo but their website does not allow this to happen. They have not changed my email address formerly, [protected]@gmail.com to [protected]@zohomail. eu either. Now I just want rid of them. I have uninstalled their software and want them to delete my account and card information. My worry is that they will take payments via their auto update service when the renewal date comes around. Many thanks,
Desired outcome: Delete my account and any credit/debit cards

After ignoring my requests for support, I no longer wish to use your software. Please remove my payment method and close my account as from NOW: 25th Jan 2022. Very Disappointed!

Iolo customers support is so bad, it makes all of their products not worth buying. If you call their number, the automated voice gives you several selections to choose from (i.e. press 1, for this, press 2 for that, etc.) Do not bother. The only number that works is "5". None of the others will work. Once the person there transfers you to technical support...Read full review of Iolo
System Mechanic, IOLO, is nothing more than a scam to infect your computer and continue to take your money. Do not let them convince you of their "money back gaurantee". The Guarantee is false! You will never see your money again once you have allowed them access to your credit card. Their "experts" are in India and have no idea what they are doing. I...Read full review of Iolo and 25 comments
After 2 months of trying to get a fix on their Search and Recover program, several emails and phone calls to California, even to the president, still no answers. Completely unacceptable. Would not recommend their products because their customer service is a joke.Read full review of Iolo and 4 comments
