I just checked my bank acc and $29.95 was taken out for this B.S. I NEVER ordered this and I want to know how they were able to get into my acc and take this money out !!!!!

I called waited and waited to talk to a human and that never happened. They came back with " we're unable to take your call at this time leave your name & phone number and we'll call you back" I will file a police report on these crooks. I live on S.S.

and can't afford to have this happen. :sigh

Ascentive just removed $29.95 from my account also. I purchased their software a year ago and installed it with no results. I contacted them, They have a "live chat" that isn't a chat, it's an e-mail, you send a message and they send a "reply" via e-mail,...

My bank account had a preauthorization charge for 59.95 on it from Ascentive. Funny that this occurred right at the time I had ordered something online from Amazon.com.

I rechecked my Amazon order to ensure I didn't randomly buy something else, which I hadn't. Called my bank and they couldn't take it off unless the company (totally unknown to me) requested it, or I completed a Fraud statement, which I couldn't do until the money was actually deducted from my account. I contacted Ascentive, and since there is no order pending, the rep says it will automatically cancel and not come out of my account. That is yet to be seen.

I asked him how he thought this came about, and he suggested someone might have tried to use my credit card to place an order with their company.

I'm very suspicious they are hacking into orders placed from Amazon, or possibly the actual provider of my product from Amazon. I have two days to wait to see if the preauthorization expires or if it goes through.

Ascentive in Dallas, Texas - Speed Scan Pro

I'm a retired man an I like computing. I compared many programmes, then I decided to buy Ascentive Speed Scan Pro. Just now another anti virus program decovered a virus in the program. I'm really disappointed. It isn't a program "Pro". Unfortunately I don't know other people who have the same problem because I'm German and I live here in France. By the way, another program works really well - Active Speed - from the same firm. With PC Scan and Sweep I have also a bit of problems, sometimes it sweeps too much and it is difficult to regain the lost files.

I downloaded Ascentive into my computer thinking it would improve the performance. Not only it did nothing to improve the computer's performance, my computer stopped working the next day and I had to get it fixed by a software repairman. I didn't do anything...

I so agree with this. The software does not do what is says for me. Maybe it works for some but I guess I am not lucky enough.

Try using SYSTEM RESTORE. It's part of Windows and can be used to restore your computer to it's state prior to installing a program.

Do you remember the date you installed PC PRO SCAN?

Do you have a general idea of when you installed it? (What month?) If so use SYSTEM RESTORE to restore your computer to its state prior to when you installed PC PRO SCAN.

Ascentive software is junk and then they want to charge a year later for the same junk

Looking at the number of complaints I would say this company has been ripping people off since they began.I wish I had seen the sight before I bought it.Not only buyer beware but buyer RUN AWAY!!!!!!!! I bought this junk software a year ago and it did not work at all!! So I figured I had learned a lesson and would not deal with these RIPOFF people again!! WRONG!! One year later they had the nerve to charge me again for a product that did not work in the first place. Needless to say I am very upset ,if I had not caught this DISHONEST move on my card statement Asscentive would have rip me for another $30.00 .They are refunding the money but Iam PISSED !!!!!!!!! STAY AWAY FROM ASSCENTIVE!!!

To anyone considering buying speed scan pro, I would suggest you try someone else's software. Speed scan pro is garbage. And just like the old saying goes, "garbage in, garbage out". I purchased this software to help speed up my computer only to learn it was not...

Ascentive in Perth, Western Australia - I KEEP PAYING FOR UPGRADES BECAUSE WHAT I AM SENT, NEVER SEEMS TO BE SUFFICIENT.

i bought the ascentive package on the internet because my computer needed something. when i downloaded what i paid for, there was not enough information to carry out all the functions. i had a menu come up everytime i opened my computer saying files where missing. i received the disk hoping this would fix the problem, but it didn't the same message box kept popping up. then i was told my trial was up, even though i paid for the package. in frustration i bought it again. and still the same thing is happening. i would like somebody to tell me what is going on. i can be reached on brunameyers@wedstnet.com.au

Ascentive in Brecksville, Ohio - Made my computer run slower.

After down loading the software my computer ran slower. I was suckered in like many others and would like to have my money back as soon as possible. You can mail my check to 9531 Legend Isle Dr., San Antonio, Texas 78254. It's nothing but a ripoff scam. I've learn my lesson about purchasing TV and Computer ads for minimum cost. I do not recommend this product for anyone. You had better check thing out before purchase, it could save you some headaches later on. I do not like writing these type of reports but, this product does not live up to the advertisement.

I should know better at my age but I also was fooled into paying for the software rubbish. After finding very quickly that it was messing up my computer I removed it, even before before the payment showed up on my bank statement.

Have written it of as a 'Seniors' moment.

Don't have many, thankfully. Can't afford them!
