Ascentive software is a hoax.

I purchased the Ascentive software download and my computer did not perform any faster. As a matter of fact, it slowed down and I began to have problems with other programs loading, etc. Since then I have deleted the program from my computer. But I am still having problems that started when I downloaded the Ascentive software. Take my advice and don't fall for their baloney! I am still receiving promotional emails from them numerous times a month. But it's strange that I was unable to find a customer service phone number or receive help on-line. My best advice to you is don't purchase anything from Ascentive. Thresa Lord

Ascentive is bogus! I can't get rid of it!

What type of company is this?! I saw a commercial about finallyfast.com(website that will speed up PC performance and connection for "free") Ascentive software was recommended.I installed Active Speed and PC Scan Pro.it showed how many errors were on my PC, I clicked Fix Now, but I had to give them my e-mail address then it showed me my BILLING OPTIONS! I've deleted it many times, it never leaves! Every time I start my computer it starts scanning, I went to Add/Remove Program, but it tells me that I have'nt even installed it. someone please help!

THE OWNER OF ASCENTIVE IS A RETARD FOR MAKING SUCH A CORRUPT COMPANY!!!! :(

:( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

#71365

Ascentive bribed MacAfee into giving them a good review for their site. :eek That proves how corrupt Ascentive is.

They bill you without your permission, and this happens before the trial is up. They also purposely make cancelling your order hard and long.

:( Google should have kept Ascentive blocked from their search. Ascentive should be shut down.

I've contacted the Pennsylvania attorney general regarding Ascentive and their bogus software that destroyed my computer. I urge all of you to do the same, maybe they will do something about it.

#50395

:( I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one that has spent hours getting rid of this piece of junk.

I feel the TV stations or networks who accept these 'ads' have some responsibility to make sure the ads they run and are paid for are not going to be detrimental to their most important commodity; US, the Viewers >> Isee enough bogus ads on a network then I would rather not see that network any longer.

I purchased your PC speedscan pro a few days ago, and since then my computer has been running slower and freezing up on me. The only thing I can do is restart my computer to get it to work and then I don't know how long it will work.

I excpect to receive a call from you in reguard to this matter, tomorrow 17 Sep. 2008 between 0900-**** or 9am-6pm.If I don't here from you I will take it that you have no concern for customer satisfaction, and I will take the approprate action."I'll let you know what happens"

Fortunately I did not buy this lemon. It just appeared on my computer like a bad bug, so I didn't have to uninstall it.

BUT, it tried to hide and pop up all the time with its pesky windows. I finally found it in my programs under a different name, sneaky ***. I forget the name but you can find it by passing the mouse over all the programs one by one and they will tell you what they really are. Sure enough this Ascentive showed up and as soon as I saw it, I zapped it.

End of problem.

For the poor bastards that have bought and installed this. I can't help them.

Open My Computer.

Go to Local Drive. Open it.

Find Ascentive. Open it.

Delete the 5 files attached.

Go to Task Manager. End process tree for APCMain.exe.

Go to Recycle Bin and delete all Ascentive files there.

Restart your PC.

Worked for me.

#41001

I was able to delete Ascentive.

Step1: Login as Administrator of your computer

Step2: Use the Ascentive Uninstall Program, or use Add/Remove Programs to remove this program

Step3: Open windows Task Manager and remove the APCMain.exe process

Step4: Then immediately go to C:\ProgramFiles\Ascentive and delete all the files in this folder and then the folder itself.

That should work

If you cannot remove Ascentive, and others are having the same problem; then contact the Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. Attorney General and report the condition as a potential scam.

Send a copy of the letters to Ascentive and e-mail them as well. Ask them to call you at a reasonable time and talk to the Customer Service reps. Make sure they understand you are compiling a list of problems and are sending your recommendations of using the AG and FTC as well to others.

They should straighten up and help you remove the software. I hope this helps you.

I found it in start up and removed it but it is still there when I reboot! Their website has no email address to remove this program! Do not buy or try this program! I'm in ***! I'm in ***!I'm in ***!I'm in ***!I'm in ***!I'm in ***!I'm in ***!

Software does not work.

I bought the basic software and it did not speed up my computer one bit even though it found many things wrong and keeps finding them. What is really a Pain In The *** is they keep bombarding you with additional programs (at least five or six others) that you also need at the same basic price. Customer service has not helped me and I am still trying to get a refund. Per the agreement, I can get my money back if I am disastisfied within 30 days so I am trying to get this resolved before that time runs out.

This company's advertising is a fraud. Once you pay for their product, you find out that you have to buy several more of their products to completely fix your computer to run faster.

You could spend a fortune before you finish. I ordered one and it did nothing but give me pop-ups constantly to buy their other products.

You certainly have the most UNfriendly process so-much-so that I still cannot even download and after request for a refund, this time I am serious about a refund and if I paid with PayPal, I am going to proceed with them. I will await for your reply until this Saturday.

Sincerely, John H A.

Now you are playing the game of my code not being correct.

STOP THIS. HOW SAD AND DISGUSTING FOR AMERICANS TO ACT IN SUCH A NEGATIVE MANNER.

webroot is good, just putting that out there.

I would say at least 50% of computer related products do not work to the degree they are advertised. Computers is such a gray area to *** people due to the sophistication of the product.
