Many people have seen the popular DoubleMySpeed.com TV Commercial and can relate to the frustration of having a slow computer. But are the commercial’s claims true, that their software can actually double the speed of “your” computer?
Take a moment and listen to the DoubleMySpeed audio review by Dale Powell (aka the SpywarePreventionGuy) and decide for yourself.
The product they are offering is actually called CyberDefender, which you must know is NOT certified by ICSA Labs, WestCoast Labs, Virus Bulletin (VB100), or AV-Comparative virus testing and certification companies. All the major computer and internet security software companies such as Eset Nod32 (my favorite), Symantec and McAfee are all certified by these 4 companies. Their product also appears to be targeted at consumers instead of businesses. They do not offer any business enterprise security products.
You will also find out that they don’t list any prices on their www.doublemyspeed.com website, but they usually tailor their solution with a combination of products costing about $49.00 (and this seems to vary). You can get more information from their www.cyberdefender.com website. But if you call their customer service line for help, you will find that they are very motivated in up-selling their “Live Help Desk” product for $249.00.
Many technicians will tell you that it takes several different reputable products to clean and tune-up the performance of a computer, not to mention manual procedures that only a live person can perform. Perform a search with your favorite search engine to find out actual customer experiences with CyberDefender, you will quickly develop an informed opinion on your own about whether you should purchase their software. You can also checkout the Ripoff Report to read about some CyberDefender experiences as well.
Below are some reputable alternatives to CyberDefender that I personally recommend and use regularly myself:
ESET Nod32 Antivirus: Free 30 Day Trial
SUPERAntiSpyware: Free 15 Day Trial
With all the competitively priced “certified” products on the market, please do your research first before taking a chance with your computer health and internet security. It might be hard to choose what you “will” use, but it will be easy to decide what you “won’t” use. I hope this review helps you to decide.
