I have used this program in one way or another for almost 10 years, first using it to repair my daughter's totally messed up laptop. I have found it worked reasonably for a free program.

After my Windows 7 computer when down, I purchased a new Window 10 computer and transferred files.

For some reason Windows 10 likes to duplicate folders. Since Glary utilities as a duplicate file delete function I attempted to delete over 140,000 duplicate files made my windows 10.

In the past Glary utilities would allow a user to click a key called "Check Intelligent" and bulk delete all the duplicates in two clicks. But not now.

And if you contact the company, they are quick to response in will imply the user does not know how to use the program, but will offer no solution to the problem.

In August I was notified of several fraudulent transactions on my Mastercard account and a new account was issued.

On August 6, 2019 I was notified of a new charge on my Mastercard.

Investigation I carried found it was a charge from a company with whom I had done business in the past, cancelled the account with them and chose not to give them and as a result was they did not have the new account number and admitted they got the new account number from the "bank"

Mastercard and other credit card companies have what is called an "Account updater service" by which, without your permission, they will update your account information without your approval, giving new expiration dates or new account numbers to merchants without your permission.

In effect, Mastercard and your bank aide in credit card fraud without your approval.

I have been on Facebook for 10 years and have posted many, many comments on issues from a conservative point of view.

Lately how ever I have had two posts removed and had posting restricted for period. The first post was about Facebook's favorite criminal activity, one that has been frequently in the news for the last three year.

The other had to do with Facebook censorship of conservative points of view. Never mind certain left wing group and other of liberal view point can post threats of violence and brag about acts of terrorism they have commented without being shut down.

All of these reprisals from Facebook began after I won a dispute over a fraudulent charge on my credit card.

Planning on deleting my profile later today.

In 2018 my home was appraised for new windows by this firm. The cost, based on my last experience over $13,000, was outrageous.

Since that time, until recently I was receiving mailings and emails pushing their windows.

A few months ago, I received another quote from Window World and purchased their window or a third of the Andersen cost.

Now I am getting mails every week. And sometimes two or three emails a day. And every time I block one email address, another address is used.

I have called the Austin, Texas location and emailed to stop with the junk mail with no resolution.

Ordered a device called Heart-Strong fitness tracker. Looked promising when it was received.

It worked exactly 21 hours before failing.

I was a member for over a year. Too much group think on the site. Persons who may disagree with the majority opinion are insulted and ridiculed.

They also take your data and share on another site without your permission.

The site is over run with wanta be socialists

In May I paid for a premium version of their System Mechanic software. In early July an upgrade was issued. When first installed, the program could only be found in the remove programs setting in the control panel.

Reinstalled, same problem. Now I won't install at all. Waste of money. And on their webpage they admit they have problems with the installation of the software and will fix it some.

Since I have paid for the program and now can't use it, I will not renew.

Stay away from this one, folks.

On April 26, 2019 I purchased a four channel wireless security system for my home. One of the selling points was being able to monitor the camera on line. After mounting the cameras and connecting the receiver to the everything work fine. Other that setting the date and time no others settings had to be made. Unit worked fine until June 20th. Then it became impossible to monitor the camera on line. The receiver shows it is not connected to the web. swapped cables and port and no luck. Called Harbor Freight technical support and the person with whom I spoke told me "we have never had one of these unit fail. The problem is with your ISP". Bull. One device does not connect, regardless of setting and it the Harbor Freight product. I was also told to tinker with the router settings. But I don't own the router.

Saw a notice about a concert I was interested in and tried all four browsers on my computer, completed the captcha and was told each time I was a bot trying to access the site.

Thanks Ticketmaster. Your site has save me a great deal of money.

Saw and signed one petition with which I agreed with. Then the spam began. Nothing but petitions for leftist and anti American causes.

Like others who have reviewed this site today I received a request to sign a pro impeachment petition for removal of President Trump. There are a lot of people in Washington D.C. who need to go, and the president is not one of those.

I removed my email from their site.

Don't come here if you want real science news. Any site that promotes the agenda of the climate alarmists is not to be trusted. Yes they support the climate change scam.

Movoto.com is another website listing properties for sale on the Multi Listing Service. Today while checking to see the status of a neighbor's house up for sale. I google the address and go to the listing and wow, the photo the house for sale is not the neighbors, rather mine, which is not for sale.

Funny thing is another search on this site for the neighbors address shows the correct house in one of two photos on the site, but the other, a Google Earth picture is of my house.

So far two telephone calls have not solved the problem

Sloppy work

The search function on this site is the worst I have ever seen. Enter a search term and as much as 95% of the returns products are not related at all to the product entered for a search. Example I searched for night lights and the first page of returned item for sale was feminine napkins. Not even close to a night light.

Accuracy on this site is nonexistent. Doing a search for my name does bot show my name, but does show me as my youngest son who is 35 years old. And his name is not the same as mine. As far has this site is concerned I don't exist.

And my oldest son, the junior, has two listings, one of which lists his age as 5 years older then he really is.

Searching my address shows people who have never even lived in my city as living here.

Like most of these sites the search results are not reliable

Had subscribed to their emails regarding health issues until an email of a political nature arrived listing the so called five most influential woman. Every one of them was either an entertainer of a leftist political activist. Blocked them.

Like most of the so call background check there are errors. So many in fact this site is worthless and for the fees charged a scam. I did a check on my oldest son for example and it has his and martial status totally wrong. My report was not any better except my race was correct, however most of the rest the data was wrong, wrong, wrong. Save your money for better things than this site.

Zillow is a site for buying and selling real estate and has a section to review restate agents. However, if the agent in not employed by you you cannot write a review, even if the other parties agent costs you a sale as recently happened to me.

Also today I find the listing for a neighbor's house up for sale includes a photo of my house. Totally incompentet.
Not recommended.

I met several women on this site. Each one of them has some sort of mental problem.

One I dated for five months, a 70 year old looking for a sugar daddy. Had I stayed for the long term I would have been husband number nine.

Stay away from this site.
