Pros Seems to protect fairly well.
Cons Even if you opt out of "auto-renewal," it still tries to auto renew 3 months prior to end of subscription. If you cancel auto-renewal at that time, you end up canceling the last three months of the subscription. Poor customer service for this issue
Summary Don't even buy the program. In the long run, you will save money and headaches. It is, at best, an "OK" program but the hidden "catches" aren't worth the hassle and you end up losing money in the end unless you are willing to let them access your credit card for infinite renewals.
Pros NONE THIS IS HORRID PRODUCT
Cons New Computer infected with viruses after installing. Product could not remove.
Within the 30day satisfaction window - went for refund. Two months later still trying to get refund processed
Summary Don't waste money on this.
Pros I got nailed with a Russian virus. Blew the doors off AVG my anti-mallware programs, as well as my router's firewall and Windows' firewall.
The people I hired to clean up the mess installed PC Tools remotely (I was totally locked out locally) and get ri
Cons After this was installed, I noticed that my production had slowed down considerably and half the time it was a matter of the computer waiting on PC Tools to do its job (the other times it was either MS Word 2000 or Firefox 7 monopolizing the CPU while acc
Summary Not a good product, unless you don't mind going out for coffee several times an hour while this cycle hog does its thing.Sorry about the incomplete sections. CNET's page doesn't seem to work any better than PC Tools does.

Pros None. Terrible.
Cons As simple as I can say, these products are garbage, don't waste your money. Service is terrible, I spent 3 hours on hold to talk to. Techs I couldnt understand and to top it off they had no clue on how the programs worked.
I purchased because I had a vi
Summary DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM PC TOOLS. PRODUCTS ARE TERRIBLE! SERVICE IS WORSE. SAVE YOUR MONEY
Pros The virus protection seems to work and it certainly finds a lot of low risk ad trackers.
Cons The anti-SPAM software doesn't work for me and tech support was useless in trying to figure out why. Instead tech support recommended I uninstall and reinstall the software. If I have to unstall it will just stay uninstalled.
Summary I'm sure the anti-spam issue is explainable but unless support can explain it, then what use is the software.
